What happens when a professional singer, musician, composer, arranger, and producer are also a vocal coach?  Well… he hears more than most and also knows music more than many vocal coaches.  What does music have to do with singing?  Think about it.

Many vocal coaches study vocal technique with a vocal coach for years.  They then go off on their own, thinking they are ready to instruct.  There is a technique to teaching vocal technique.  There are thousands of things to analyze, potentially.  There is listening technique.  What and how you hear and to what extent will affect your analysis of a voice and whether you get it right or wrong.

If you work with a group and you cannot hear heterodyne, let alone know what it is, you won’t do nearly as good of a job as one who hears it and also understands partials, or the overtone series.  There’s much more to it than one page can allow.

Pity the person who relies solely on an audio or video course on singing.  The most important component is omitted from that scenario.  Just as a surgeon who operates on himself has a fool for a patient,  a singer, self-taught, even with the best video course in the world, has no real objectivity or musical education to get very far.

Vocal Coaching VS Singing Lessons

I have been informed that I should be charging $250 per hour because of my knowledge, experience, and success.  I  know vocal coaches who are charging $500 per hour and $350 per hour.  

I only paid $175 per lesson but I don’t charge that much.  If you’re shopping for prices, that makes sense but you don’t always get the value of what you pay for.  

Your source of information about singing may be different from mine.  Mine include Gray’s Anatomy (the book), books by: Richard Miller, Seth Riggs, Roger Love and others.  Eight licensed practicing physicians.  Two speech therapists. 

Thousands of students over 25 years taught me a few things. I’ve taken many private lessons from top professional vocal coaches, arrangers, composers, and musicians.

I’m a professional singer.  My own success is a result of what I’ve learned over a few decades.  My stage experience includes shows in Las Vegas.

Singing lessons?  What singing teachers don’t know won’t kill you but it could kill a career.  Many are still spewing useless or harmful myths about how to sing, how to breathe, how to enunciate, how to articulate  and more.  Many know nothing about style. 

One of the highest paid vocal coaches in the world doesn’t teach style.  He refers people to someone else for that.  What’s even worse is there is one factor, which is the most neglected, that will make or break a career.  After writing over 2500 works and being an ASCAP member, I can say I know this factor.  I’ve shared musical knowledge and have even helped students learn to write songs.
