10 Tips on taking singing lessons as an adult

2021-04-12T08:58:49+01:00

Taking singing lessons as an adult comes with its own set of challenges that are unique to adult vocalists. Unless you’re a full-time musician, you’ll likely have to juggle your lessons alongside work, study and family commitments. Another concern for adult beginners is they feel it’s ‘too late to start singing’. That’s absolutely not the case! Just like you’d never tell someone it’s too late to get in shape or learn a new language, you’re perfectly on time whenever you decide to start adult singing lessons. Plenty of singers have achieved great things later on in life, including Sheryl Crow, Bill [...]

5 Reasons why you need adult singing lessons

2021-03-11T11:03:24+00:00

Adults come to us for singing lessons for so many different reasons. Some are professional singers looking to advance their voice, while others enjoy singing as a hobby. No matter their background, one thing is for sure – singing is for everyone! Don’t believe us? Sadly, many assume that singing is something you have to be naturally talented to do, but that’s simply not the case. Singing and our love for music is what we naturally connect with and, historically, it even predates speech and language. This is proof that we are all, quite literally, born to sing. While you may [...]

5 Reasons why adults quit singing

2021-03-02T11:48:38+00:00

Let’s face it – learning something new as an adult is not easy and keeping up singing alongside family and work responsibilities can seem like a lot to juggle at times. It can feel like an ‘either or’ choice and, as a result, adults decide to quit the things they enjoy the most, like singing. This is a real shame to see, especially, as our favourite activities are actually what help us relax and take our mind off the everyday stress. It’s so important that we don’t discourage ourselves from pursuing them! If you’ve ever felt like you want to quit [...]

Why Do We Sing?

2020-05-14T10:25:52+01:00

Many of us like to sing professionally, while others sing in the shower, in their car, at karaoke or anytime they hear their favourite song. Almost all of us love music and we join in with singing and chanting, whether at sports events, church, festivals and more. It’s no secret that we are deeply connected to music, we have an appreciation for it and it’s a form of self-expression and a way to bring us together. But, have you ever wondered why we are able to sing in the first place? Many animals, humans included, produce a variety of sounds from [...]

Can anybody learn to sing?

2020-05-14T10:40:00+01:00

Learning to sing is a possibility for the vast majority of people. I have met countless singers who avoided singing for years unnecessarily. Despite the fact that most people can learn to sing well and make significant improvement, there are people everywhere confining their singing to bathrooms. I have worked with many singers who considered themselves tone deaf only to discover in the first session that they are perfectly capable of singing in tune when given the opportunity. There are a multitude of reasons why so many of us have reservations about our singing. People are often labelled unfairly at a [...]

You do not need any prior experience to develop your voice!

2020-05-14T10:38:27+01:00

A lot of adult beginner vocal students are initially very concerned about not having prior vocal experience. The truth is that we all start at the beginning. It is simply the best place to start. (Especially if you start with top-notch vocal education!) A great singing teacher will know how to make you feel comfortable regardless of your experience. It is often extremely nerve-wracking to sing in front of a teacher for the first time and a lot of beginner adult students simply lack the confidence to sing a song at the first lesson. That is EXACTLY we at The London [...]
