What giving voice lessons means to me.
Voice lessons are more than just learning to sing. So many aspects of truly learning to sing better can have life-altering effects on a person's way of looking at him or herself.
As a voice teacher, I have had the incredibly inspiring experience of watching someone find out who he or she is and what his or her capabilities are. It starts with teaching good posture, one of the first and most lasting impressions we have on others, sending a message of more self-confidence.
Other important elements are good breathing, articulation, muscle coordination from head to foot, indvidual song interpretation, full use of body resonance and general self-awareness - both mental and physical.
Helping someone to find his/her full potential is the most rewarding aspect of voice teaching. Using this as a standard to measure my own success, I feel extremly rich and privileged.
