Get a solid understanding of the 12 bar blues and how to improvise vocally around it

The 12 bar blues is the most common form when it comes to singing and playing the blues. As a blues singer, you need to immerse yourself in the 12 bar blues and understand the cycles within the 12 bars. The first four bars is the introduction, after that, we have some development and finally, we get the climatic turnaround that leads us back to the beginning. As a blues singer, you must understand how to phrase your lines and licks with style and attitude. You must also be able to hit exactly the right notes at the right time when the harmonies change. Blues may seem easy, but to sing the blues really well require expert blues voice lessons. At the London Singing Institute, we make absolutely certain that you learn all the correct techniques from day one.

The lessons are 45-minutes in duration and can be joined at any time during the year. (Longer lessons can be arranged on request)

As all our singing lessons for adults are highly personalised and tailored to the needs and wishes of each, you are welcome to decide whether you would like to sit the ABRSM grade examinations.

We totally understand that you play the singing for your pleasure and enjoyment so this decision is totally optional.

We do not follow a set syllabus but rather adapt to each of our students as everyone is different and requires special attention.

We require an initial four-month attendance as we believe that it is the minimum amount of time an adult should study at The London Singing Institute to benefit fully from our excellent singing instruction. After this initial period, you are welcome to continue your singing education on an on-going basis, but lessons are still booked per four months in advance.

Frequently asked questions

You are most welcome to join The London Singing Institute even if you are an absolute beginner without any prior musical experience. Our singing courses are designed for adults who are brand new to music so no previous knowledge is necessary to join. Learning how to read music notation and theory will be part of your singing course so there is nothing to worry about.

Definitely not. We believe that there is no age limit to learn and enjoy playing the singing for your own pleasure.

Of course! You are most welcome to give it a try and book an introductory lesson to find out if playing the singing is really what you want to do. Be reassured that there is no need to possess any talent to join The London Singing Institute. We believe that all adults are able to play the singing thanks to the expert guidance of our excellent singing instructors.

You do not need to own a singing to start your singing course as the purchase of the most suitable instrument for you to begin your education can be discussed with your instructor during your first singing lesson. He or she will be able to make a recommendation and advise on the best singing store to visit.

Absolutely! The London Singing Institute is entirely dedicated to adults who wish to play for their pleasure and enjoyment so you are more than welcome to join.

You definitely need to practice if you intend to make any progress. Attending your singing lessons will offer you the guidance and feedback needed to improve in the right direction but a personal daily practice is necessary to enhance your singing skills.

It all depends on your current pianistic level. As a complete beginner, you can start with 15 minutes each day to get into the habit of practising on a daily basis. It should then increase to 30 minutes quite rapidly as you will need enough time to review and improve the material that has been studied during your singing lessons.

Not at all. All our singing instructors have been selected for their remarkable understanding of adults who play the singing for their own pleasure. They are, therefore, extremely patient, kind and supportive. We can assure you that your instructor will never judge, patronise or criticise you negatively.

Yes, we do offer preparation to the ABRSM grade examinations from grade 1 to grade 8, but sitting the exams is not compulsory.

It is an extremely difficult question to answer as it all depends on your abilities and the exact goal that you have in mind. As per our experience, we can, however, say that you should be able to play some exquisite simple singing pieces after a few lessons only.

The duration of your singing course depends on your personal goal after attending for a minimum of 4 months. Your lessons will then take place on an ongoing basis until you are satisfied with your singing playing or unable to pursue your education.

Of course. If you are a proficient pianist, we would certainly recommend that you inform us prior to the beginning of your course. It should, therefore, be booked with one of our senior singing instructors, who definitely possess the right set of skills and experience to help you improve further.

Absolutely. We know how daunting it can be for a classically trained pianist to step into jazz singing playing and we would be delighted to support you in your endeavour.

We are currently working with four singing instructors who have all been carefully selected by our founder Celine Gaurier-Joubert. They are all exceptional pianists and instructors who have a broad experience in adult singing education and a genuine passion for teaching adult amateur pianists.

As we do not follow a set syllabus but prefer adapting to each in order to provide you with the most suitable singing education possible, the content of our singing lessons depends on your current abilities, wishes and style studied.

At The London Singing Institute, we understand that it can be difficult for some busy professionals to attend their singing lessons on a set day and time each week. We will be happy to accommodate you but please inform us before signing up as any special request is subject to an extra fee and availability.
