“Is it possible, with singing lessons anyone can learn to sing?
Singing with Chelsea vocal Studio offers voice lessons for students ranging from beginner to expert in Sandy, UT.
For some, it seems to come naturally, but for others, it can be a struggle. Whether your pursuing voice lessons for professional reasons or personal passion or both, it takes effort, practice, and good instruction. Learn HOW to sing, not just what to sing. The IVA technique can be applied to all genres of music so you can sing beautifully, without strain or pain. The goal for every singer is having the ability to always maintain balance from the bottom of your range to the top without a sudden change in the quality of sound. Singing at speech-level. You don’t sing like you speak, but you need to keep the same comfortable, easily produced vocal posture you have when you speak, so you don’t “reach up” for high notes or “press down” for low ones. This gives you the ability to discover the styles of singing best suited for your voice, rather than feeling “stuck” because of bad habits or other vocal limitations.

Can ANYONE learn to sing? Even if I’ve been told I am “tone deaf”?
The short answer? Yes. In my experience, I believe anyone can learn to sing. Will they all be record label artists someday, maybe not, but no matter your age or skill level, you CAN learn to sing, hold a pitch, and benefit from vocal training. The student needs to be teachable, open to new experiences, and willing to be patient. They must approach lessons ready to do exercises, ear training, strange “unfinished” sounds, and practice regularly. In fact, months may go by before they are able to sing through a simple song from beginning to end. However, If the student understands these challenges and shows a positive attitude, I will probably take them on. We both will need to keep open lines of communication. Periodically, we will reassess where they are at, and as long as the student is invested, I will work with you.
How do you define singing?
Well, artistically speaking, singing is using your voice in a musical manner to communicate ideas and emotions to an audience. Technically, however, singing is nothing more than sustained speech over a greater pitch and dynamic range.
After studying with you regularly, what would you expect from a singer’s vocal range?
Everyone has a different vocal ability, but, on the average:
· Basses should be able to sing low E to G above middle C.
· Baritones should be able to sing low G to B natural just below the Tenor high C.
· Tenors should be able to sing C (below middle C) to E above high C.
· Altos should be able to sing low C (below middle C) to high C.
· Mezzo-Sopranos should be able to sing G (below middle C) to Eb above high C.
· Sopranos should be able to sing G (below middle C) to F above high C.
All voices should be able to maintain a connected, even quality of tone throughout their entire range.
If the larynx stays in a relaxed, stable speech-level position, allowing your vocal cords to adjust freely with your breath flow, those vocal ranges are well within the technical ability of a great many more people than you’d think. They may not sustain those notes constantly, but they should be able to sing them with good technique. This way they will always have a reserve of notes beyond the usual range requirements of any song they sing.
What type of music should I sing?
*as a beginning student-you should avoid any material that puts a great demand on your voice from a dynamics standpoint. Select songs with a more simple melody line that don’t require dramatic jumps in pitches or dynamics.
As you progress, however, you will find that the more material you sing, the more you will find what genre of music your voice is more suited for. This is why I don’t stick my students in a specific box or tell them what to sing. It’s a journey we will discover together. While one voice may be perfect for tender ballads it may not be as well suited for heavy, rock music no matter how hard or how long the singer trains. Another voice might be a natural Broadway “belter” but can’t sing in a “legit” style very easily.
Having worked with a great number of singers, I have found what can often bring the most success for many is discovering the styles of singing that work best for them and which do not. There have been many times a singer felt they couldn’t sing well, or didn’t have enough talent, only to discover with me later it was simply the wrong style of music for their voice. Once we started working music that the voice naturally responded to singing, their voices soared.
How much should I practice?
*Daily. Even if it’s just for a short time, especially as you are learning or working through a specific vocal problem. Remember why you practice the vocal exercises. You do so to set up the correct balance between your exhaled air and your vocal cords, allowing you to sing at a speech level, and to then have the muscle coordination to relive the sensations regularly. Much like exercise is required regularly to stay healthy, your voice needs regular exercise to function correctly and stay healthy as well. If you are performing regularly, daily exercises are essential for vocal health. Often the demand of performance requires you to stray from vocal balance. Practicing daily will help your voice get back to balance more quickly. Although the concepts are easy to understand, it takes time and patience to coordinate everything so that you can do it well, on a regular basis.”
