Vocal teachers can show you tried and tested techniques to make you sing louder and in tone. For me, the voice classes paid off.

Everyone can learn to sing better, and a voice teacher can help you learn how to use your voice to the best of their ability.

You know, the basic fundamentals on which to build my voice, like the foundations of a house or the chassis of a car.

In those one-on-one singing lessons, you basically pay for the time, knowledge and advice of an experienced singing teacher who will help you develop your unique voice. Everyone goes through a moment when you feel like you've done everything possible for your voice and now you're a little stuck, not knowing what to do to keep going and improve even more. That is, until my last voice coach casually told me “oh, you're doing all that the wrong way, I'm sure you can imagine my answer after spending almost a decade practicing in this' wrong 'way.
