Frequently Asked Questions
LEARNING TO SING
Why take singing lessons?
Some of the best music ever written has been written for the human voice. From ancient chants, to Mozart’s operas, great Musicals to Jazz and your favourite pop artist.
The human voice might have the greatest emotional potential of any other instrument because of the double impact of music plus the power of words.
Voice students often find studying voice a very rewarding process, often with a variety of unexpected benefits, such as improved self confidence, body awareness, the therapeutic effects of learning to breath properly, and the thrill of singing with others or with instrumental ensembles.
When Should my Child Start Voice Lessons?
Voice instruction for kids has been a tradition for centuries. While repertoire needs to be carefully selected by the instructor to avoid strain, gentle training with appropriate music is safe.
We often begin a mixture of basic piano, rhythm and singing as early as age four.
How Long Does it Take to Learn to Sing?
Results are often noticeable in a very months. The variables include the students interest level, and the consistency of practice. Also, how closely the student follows the suggestions for practice.
Many students find that recording themselves, listening to great singers as reference, and frequently participating in performance opportunities help to speed up progress.
Students that set clear goals for themselves often find improved progress.
Can a terrible singer become good?
Is singing a skill or a gift?
Can I learn to sing if I have no talent?
Can you learn to sing or is it a natural talent?
Am I too old to take singing Lessons?
This is a question we frequently get from adult students. While you might not become the next Pavarotti, you might be surprised to see how far you can go.
Many of our adult students are middle aged, and even older. There is no physiological reason an older adult cannot learn to sing, or improve his or her voice.
In fact, adults sometimes are better able to understand helpful analogies and abstract ideas that are useful to training.
How long of a lesson should I take?
For children 5 to 9 years old, a 45 minute musical lesson is sufficient. For studnets 9+ years and students who have specific musical goals such as playing in orchestra, a full 1 hour lesson is a better investment. For any advanced players a 1 hour lesson is highly recommended.
Do I need my own instrument?
Can we split a 60 minute lesson into two lessons?
If you have two students wanting to learn, we are able to divide a 60 minute lesson into two 30 minute lessons.
What happens if I leave for 2 months and come back?
If you are leaving for 30 days or longer, you have the option of holding your time and teacher for when you return by paying your normal monthly tuition.You may also withdraw completely and re- register when you return, however your time and teacher may not be available.
Do you accept the government’s Creative Kids Voucher?
Currently we are only accepting Creative Kids Voucher in NSW. We hope to accept the government voucher in other states soon.
Do I need to travel anywhere for my lessons?
We will come to your home, meaning you don’t have to fight traffic to get to after school lessons.

How old should my child be to begin music lessons?
Children as young as five can begin learning their instrument and basic music theory.
We are very experienced in tutoring young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to engage your child and give them best start in their musical journey.
Is a 45 minute lesson too long for my child?
In our 45 minute lessons, we are able to cover music theory, technical skills alongside the songs we teach. These important aspects of musical education are often skipped over in 30 minute lessons.
How do I know my child is progressing ?
To keep our students learning and progressing, we use the Musical Ladder system. Every 3 months our students take a test with their teacher to make sure they are absorbing the material in the lessons and making progress. Our students love this system as they get to earn cool colourful wristbands and certificates as well as trophies for their achievements! Our teachers also will take the time to conference
What happens if I ( my child ) gets sick and can’t make a lesson one day?
We have group make up classes on the weekend, that are age and level appropriate. You can sign up online for as many as you would like and the make up never expires, meaning you can take the make up class a week or 2 months later.
