Shery M: Artist, performer and Vocal Coach in Vienna
The first difference between a singing lesson and a vocal coaching session is the focus of the lesson. Singing teachers work on vocal technique. You may do vocal function exercises, note patterns and single notes, designed to achieve a particular sound or to refine your ability in a particular part of your range. Typically, the majority of the lesson will be given to these technical exercises, although there may well be some time given to song troubleshooting – putting the technique into context. Sometimes you do not get to sing a song all the way through in a technique lesson, as the purpose is to discover the things that are not working for you, and to fix them.
