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 singing, so no previous knowledge is necessary to join. Also, please do not worry about your voice as our teachers are here to help you and improve your tone production.
Definitely not. We believe that there is no age limit to learn and enjoy singing.
Of course! You are most welcome to give it a try and book an introductory lesson to find out if singing suits you well. Be reassured that there is no need to possess any talent to join The London Singing Institute. We believe that all adults can learn how to sing beautifully thanks to the expert guidance of our excellent singing instructors.
Absolutely! The London Singing Institute has been created explicitly for adults like yourself who sing for their pleasure and enjoyment.
You 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 vocal skills.
It all depends on your current level. As a complete beginner, you can start with 15 minutes each day to get into the habit of practising daily. 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 sing for their 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 a complicated question to answer as it all depends on your abilities and the specific goal that you have in mind. As per our experience, we can, however, say that you should be able to sing some lovely songs after a few lessons only.
The duration of your singing course depends on your personal goal after attending for a minimum of 3 months. Your lessons will then take place on an ongoing basis until you are satisfied with your new vocal abilities or unable to pursue your education.
Of course. If you are already a proficient vocalist, we would certainly recommend that you inform us before the beginning of your course. We are pleased to confirm that all our singing instructors 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 singer to step into jazz so we would be delighted to support you in your endeavour.
We do not follow a set syllabus but prefer adapting to each. As we wish to provide you with the most suitable singing education possible, the content of your singing lessons will depend 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.
