Some people believe that either you can sing, or you cannot. But no one would assume that someone would be able to play football without being taught the rules of the game, how to throw the ball, how to tackle, etc. Of course, there are those with natural talent, and those who have a wonderful voice that may be hidden under a poor technique. The main purpose of voice lessons is to teach the student how to sing – how to be the instrument as well as how to use it – so that they can make the best out of what God gave them. If the student has a passion for singing, regardless of their career path they can become better at singing – even if they are what some call “tone-deaf”!
Why take voice lessons?
