How do you know if you've found a good online singing school?
With so many to choose from on the internet and with each one claiming to be the best in the business, how are you to make a decision? We've put together a short list of things to look for to help make an informed decision that you will be confident in.
The first thing to check out when considering an online lesson studio is:
When it comes to the price of the lesson, cheaper is not always better. In most cases with performing arts a low price point means low quality, cookie cutter lessons or a "one-size fits all" type of lesson. Getting lessons to strengthen your particular skill set is an investment that will have lasting benefits, so be sure to get the quality you need especially when it comes to something so important like your voice. You can do serious damage working with an inexperienced or unqualified teacher such as building poor habits or techniques. Be sure to look into your teacher’s background, and how long the studio has been in business. Check all the reviews you can find and do your research so you’re sure you’re paying for a high-quality experience. Once you know a studio is qualified and has proven results, be sure they give you the attention and care you deserve so that you don't feel disregarded.
This brings us to the next important thing to look for, studio culture and vibe!
What is the vibe like at the studio you’re interested in trusting your talents and skills with? Is there a friendly and approachable team who answers in a timely fashion? Does your teacher make lessons fun and challenging, making you feel comfortable and confident?
Do you have an opportunity to see this before committing to joining, be it through a website or email communication or trying a lesson? These are all things to consider in the first lesson with any singing school.
What else do you get besides the obvious lessons? Do you get opportunities for growth? Bonus content? Support between lessons? Your singing school should provide as much value as possible to you in order to keep you engaged in lessons and learning more than you thought you would. Monthly workshops or Masterclasses are a huge bonus to all students to learn more about singing and performing that they would not otherwise get from their regular one-on-one lessons. Plus, it's a fun way to meet and learn from other teachers who are experts in different facets of the music and singing world.
