Everyone’s voice is unique and so is everyone’s learning approach. And yet there is a universality to what makes a healthy voice and a beautifully expressive tone – relaxed, instinctive breathwork and whole-body alignment create the support that provides true freedom to the larynx, which itself moves between intricate and detailed shifts of posture and position throughout the singing act.

There are two things that you should learn in every *single* singing lesson. The first thing is physically making sound. How do you breathe? How is the sound manipulated by your body? How does the sound come out of your face? There are a lot of differing, confusing points of view about this, but all you’re doing is learning to manipulate subtle things in your body to make different sounds.

Thousands of tutors can teach you Singing,
find private lessons close to London.
Have you recently been dreaming about perfecting your vocal technique to become master and virtuoso in your favourite music genre (opera, traditional jazz, jazz-rock, gospel, choral music, etc.) by taking up singing lessons?
Lucky for you, you live in London, where you have plenty of music courses to choose from!
In the Square Mile, you can take singing lessons to learn how to read music, how to sing on-pitch, how to take care of your vocal range (bass, baritone, tenor, countertenor, contralto, alto, soprano), and to learn about the art of singing.
Here’s everything you need to know about our singing lessons in the British capital.
Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Notting Hill, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the West End, Hyde Park, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge, etc… Since the dawn of time, London has been a hub of history and culture, arousing enchantment and artistic expression.
Art, photography, music, architecture, film, design… many are the artists who have found their inspiration – and their fame – in London, to the point that every corner, street, neighbourhood, monument, seems familiar when you visit the British capital.
Your goal may be to become a professional musician in the London Philharmonic Orchestra, or rather to learn how to sing well enough to be able to casually hum a classic song by John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, Ozzy Osbourne, Elvis Costello, Elton John, Van Morrison, Keith Richards, Amy Winehouse, Phil Collins, etc.
Whatever the reason, there’s no way around it. In order to learn how to sing, you have to take lessons and follow proper musical training. Your musical education is inextricably linked to piano or guitar lessons. These will explore your expressiveness and help you assert your personality. Because, by studying proper singing techniques, your voice will improve in accuracy, and you will soon find the perfect pitch to sing a song.
We often hear that music, or singing, are a matter of innate predispositions.
You say you can’t learn how to sing if you don’t know what notes to sing. But, have you ever heard a cook say that he could’ve been a Michelin-starred Chef if he had only known how to thinly slice vegetables? All you have to do is learn, and repeat.
Any vocal coach will tell you that it would be foolish to think that singing cannot be taught, because, as Pablo Picasso reportedly said, “talent without technique is merely a bad habit”.
It is therefore imperative to take lessons (either one-on-one lessons with a private tutor or group lessons) to learn the fundamentals of music theory and to learn the proper singing technique (because, yes, there is a proper technique!).
Let’s start with music theory, which teaches you about rhythm, music notation and reading sheet music. You will learn by practising various breathing exercises, training you to breathe through your diaphragm, and singing exercises, which will develop your musical ear.
Turns out, having a beautiful voice and knowing how to perform a song cannot be improvised, you have to work at it!
Learning the proper singing technique can be done in a singing school, a music school, at one of the four British conservatoires located in London, as part of an association, as well as with the aid of a private singing tutor at home.
And that’s where we come in.
The tutors who put our faith in us in London will help you become a great singer, using the teaching methods best adapted to your skill level.
As we all know, singing reflects the expression of musical sound, by using the blowing technique. By using your diaphragm to expel air from your lungs, you cause your vocal cords to vibrate and, thus, your voice is projected.
During the Paleolithic Era, about 35,000 years ago, hunter-gatherers already used primitive musical instruments and various vocal techniques to catch their preys.
According to archaeological studies, prehistoric man naturally broke into song in order to voice social rituals. And we don’t need to tell you that singing results in better hunting…
But it’s also a creative activity, beneficial to your well-being, a bit like doing yoga, which helps relieve stress.
There are many benefits to singing, both on a physical and on a physiological level. It helps give you peace of mind, and it allows you to channel your energy so that you feel better. Working on your voice so that you can sing better also stimulates all of your body’s natural resources, such as your respiratory system, your back muscles, your abs, your neck muscles, and your face.
Before you start singing, you’ll see that it’s fundamental to find the right posture: shoulders pulled back, head aligned with your spine, and your back nice and straight. And, don’t forget to breathe through your diaphragm!
Yup, all singers will tell you that locking your abdominal region and breathing out through your stomach will give more breath and tonality to your voice. Also, this breathing technique used in singing results in a more relaxed body.
When you sing, you have to aerate your lungs via short breaths, which serve to oxygenate your body (starting with the abdomen, the rib cage and the lungs), followed by a long expiration, controlled by the diaphragm.
Learning to prolong your breath also works to reduce your heart rate and, ultimately, to relax.
Additionally, learning music by singing has a positive effect on mental health. Singing favours the secretion of “happiness hormones,” and let’s not forget that music and singing are the ambassadors of emotion and sensibility.
Do you ever start humming a happy tune when you’re feeling particularly happy and joyful?
Thanks to the muscular contractions it entails, singing increases the secretion of endorphins and becomes an agent of pleasure and positive energy. You don’t need to sing well to feel better, though; simply finding your voice is enough to give you pleasure.
Our best tutors can quickly become your vocal coaches, making you shine by teaching you the proper singing technique. Moreover, our home lessons help you gain self-confidence by removing any obstacles that may be created in a group setting and freeing the little voice inside of you calling you to carry a tune.
Home lessons will also be a great help if you are shy and have a hard time with public speaking, since delivering a speech or using a mic to express your opinion are tied to singing. No more stage fright - your fears will now be a thing of the past!
Any student can make quick progress, as long as you regularly work your resonance, accuracy, tone, rhythm, harmony, improvisation, etc. Your singing tutor won’t be able to do it for you!
Who would’ve thought that a beginner’s musical awakening could lead to becoming a piano professor, songwriter or composer? Some of our alums certainly didn’t! You never know where singing lessons can take you.
Hundreds of private singing tutors are available today to give you guitar, piano and singing lessons in various different musical styles, all within 25 km of the centre of London.
The average hourly rate of a music lesson is £35, but this price hides a wide price variation among the different course offerings, which range from £12 to up to £90 an hour. A certain number of parameters will indeed impact a tutor’s hourly rates, including:
Thanks to private home singing lessons, you’ll be able to:
To choose your private tutor, you must also take into account the human connection. Since you are likely to see each other on a weekly basis, it is imperative that you get along well.
You will need to seek the aid of a different tutor if your instructor isn’t a good teacher, does not adapt to your level, or, what’s worse, begins to judge you.
Finally, make sure to ask your tutor if they offer their first lesson for free. That way, you’ll be able to assess your own singing level and establish a road map for yourself.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get singing!
