While singing programs do work if you have the self discipline to follow them and practice regularly, they don’t take the place of one-on-one lessons with a skilled vocal coach. But what do you do if you don’t have access to a coach? Taking online Skype singing lessons is the answer.
Why Skype Works
There are many reasons to consider online vocal lessons with a qualified coach. The most obvious is when you don’t have access to an in-person teacher, due to your location or schedule. Another, often over looked, reason is that Skype lessons give you access to a world premier teacher you normally couldn’t train with. That reason alone is why many singers recommend online singing lessons. Taking lessons via web cam gives all the benefits of in-person lessons – you can see your coach as you demonstrates exercises and technique, and he can see and hear you so he is able to give targeted instruction to fit your situation.
How It Works
One of the top online vocal coaches, Robert Lunte of the Vocalist Studio, pioneered online singing lessons. Today, over half his students are online via Skype. Although Lunte recommends students have a microphone and amplifier, it’s not required. The only equipment necessary to benefit from lessons is a computer with internet access and a web cam.
Another vocal teacher that provides Skype singing lessons is Jaime Vendera of Rock Source 360. Vendera provides hour long one-on-one lessons or you can go through is six hour intensive singing course via Skype.
The vocal coaches offering online lessons are top world singers, so you know you are getting quality instruction. Lunte is a legend in the music world who has studied beneath the masters and taught some of the top singers of today. Vendera is a world renowned musician who has appeared on Good Morning America and Mythbusters. Taking Skype singing lessons opens you up to top of the class instruction you otherwise wouldn’t have access to.
