Thousands of tutors can teach you Singing,
find private lessons close to Birmingham.
You sing wherever you go, whenever you can? In the shower, when you’re driving, walking down Broad Street, in the rain, while visiting the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery?
You’d love to learn how to sing, or to at least perfect your vocal technique, but you don’t want to necessarily join a music school?
You wish to be confident enough to sing your own songs and to accompany your already existing instrumental skills, or to sing your favourite jazz songs (some Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, for example?) or some classic British tunes by the likes of Mick Jagger, Elton John, Morrissey, or Ozzy Osbourne?
Well, there aren’t a whole lot of options. It’s time to start taking singing lessons.
In Birmingham, from Northfield to Sutton Coldfield, there is a wide variety of courses available for you if you’re looking to learn how to sing, or if you’d like to learn about music in general.
But you’re not necessarily interested in taking formal singing lessons, attending the city’s national conservatoire, or even joining an association, aren’t you? So, what’s left? Well, you can either teach yourself, or you can turn to a private tutor.
Becoming a singer and making quick progress to perfect your voice, without going through a school, isn’t completely inaccessible, provided that you’re supported by one of our private singing instructors.
Let us give you several good reasons why...
Just like learning a foreign language can help you communicate with its native speakers, we can first of all consider that Birmingham is the second most-populated city in the United Kingdom and that, therefore, there is a high concentration of artists, musicians, singers and instrumentalists here.
Learning the proper singing technique will allow you to audition for a music group and to sign up for gigs around the city, at The Rainbow or The Sunflower Lounge, or at the Secret Stages festival, for example.
There are many different reasons to learn how to sing well, and we couldn’t possibly list them all. But the most important is to develop your expressiveness and your musicianship.
Singing is the mirror of our emotions, of our sensitivity. Letting them out through song helps to appease and relax our body and mind. We sing because it makes us feel better, and also because singing goes well with an instrument.
Simply humming a song, without necessarily trying to find the melody or harmonise, helps you feel good.
And do you know why?
Singing, which causes your vocal chords to resonate, possesses physical and physiological virtues, specific to our body’s chemistry.
Taking singing lessons in choral singing, opera or jazz will stimulate all of your upper-body muscles.
When you sing, you work your diaphragm by blowing out lungfuls of air. This causes your vocal cords to vibrate, which is really all it takes to sing under your breath.
However, in order to sing correctly, you must develop the right technique to get into the correct tempo (the metronome is the prized possession of all singers and musicians).
Now, singing is not something that you can learn on your own - only a lesson on vocal technique can provide you with this type of musical education. Singing a song requires the use of the same muscle groups that a sports training does (your lower back muscles, your abs, your neck, and your face muscles).
Singing also stimulates your respiratory system, and so it’s imperative that you adopt the right posture, without which you simply will not have a good voice.
To avoid forcing your vocal cords, you must stand up straight (shoulders back, your head aligned with your spinal cord, and your ab muscles flexed).
And that’s not all! Good singers must learn to breathe through their diaphragms, in order to breathe (and sing) well. Breathing through the diaphragm means taking quick short breaths to fill your body with air, starting with your abdomen, your rib cage and your lungs, and then slowly letting it out, taking as much time as possible and controlling your breathing with your diaphragm. This creates a physical exercise for your abs, which prolongs the duration of your breath.
This exercise will be beneficial to any new learner, in order to obtain a naturally amplified voice. You’ll learn to strengthen your diaphragm, while also improving your vocal range, which will reduce your heart rate and relax your body.
In addition, thanks to music theory, rhythm courses and singing exercises to help you find your range and to position yourself in the right key, your vocal coaching will multiply the pleasure you get from playing an instrument and/or singing.
Because the molecular process works in the same way as when you exercise, taking music lessons to master the art of singing – from classical music to pop-rock, not to mention modern banghra, a style of music that was born in Birmingham in the 1960s – will promote the secretion of happiness hormones, which we call endorphins.
An endogenous opioid neuropeptide is a neurotransmitter produced by the body when you get this feeling of well-being, or when you do any type of physical exercise, that will perfuse the synapses in your brain, your digestive system and your spinal cord.
At first glance, learning musical theory will hardly bring you pleasure (in fact, it’s even rather off-putting and unmotivating). However, once you know how to read sheet music, you can truly begin to enjoy singing any type of song.
The muscle contractions tied to singing produce positive energy and make you feel better. With Superprof, our private tutors will help you work on your harmonies, your improvisation, your rhythm, and will teach you how to use your voice to sing your favourite songs, which will certainly give you pleasure.
Making progress with a music instructor is a little bit like taking yoga lessons, since it helps you to free your body of any tension and to relax.
Birmingham is an ideal place to start taking singing lessons. Around the early 1960s, the city became known for having one of the largest music scenes in the country. Taking up singing in such a vibrant city may even inspire you to consider a career transition!
What if your private singing lessons allowed you to become a singing instructor, a singer-songwriter, or to join the teaching staff of a dance, singing, or music school?
Never say never! Many former students would have never predicted their successful professional careers.
Although you may not be targeting getting on the hall of fame or joining the symphony orchestra, singing lessons can help deepen your already robust musical culture, and your voice will maybe even be discovered by a local Birmingham band looking for a young vocalist.
If you have children, take advantage of this opportunity to get them to start singing from an early age. Learning the piano or the guitar while singing stimulates a child’s cognitive abilities for the future, providing them with a good reflexive system.
Find out more about early musical education by asking your singing instructor.
On the Superprof platform, you’ll find around twenty musical teaching professionals around the Birmingham area ready to give you private singing lessons at your own home, for an average hourly rate of £22. Prices actually start as low as £12 an hour and can go up to £40 an hour, depending on the singing tutor.
Our instructors will teach you to sing different musical styles, according to your own taste in music, whether it’s folk, rock, piano jazz, sacred hymns or solo pieces. To this end, it’s important to focus on your objectives and evaluate your skill level.
Our lessons are designed to help you deepen your vocal technique by reviewing your music theory, defining your vocal range, mastering the different note intervals (octave, fourth, third, etc.), chords, and scales (major and minor scales).
This knowledge will not only help you perfect your vocal technique, but it will also be useful when you’ll want to learn other instruments, besides your voice (the flute, the trumpet, the saxophone, classic or electric guitar, the clarinet, the accordion, etc.).
At last, the fateful moment has come to choose your singing instructor. You’re going to need to compare the different profiles on our platform. Here’s a list of criteria to help guide your choice:
Finally, the golden rule: don’t be afraid to let go and take the plunge. Practice makes perfect, and repeating your singing exercises and diligently working on your voice will help you quickly become a great singer.
