"One needs a voice teacher to learn singing technique, to solidify his singing foundation, and to add more delicate techniques as he continues his progress. Strengthening, training, and stamina-building are taught and drilled in the voice lessons. A voice teacher suggests and assigns repertoire; first, as a learning tool, later as a showcase to be added to the student's own portfolio."

Student, teacher: Building relationship

Pradichaya Poonyarit Voice Studio | Lehigh Valley, Easton, PA

The business of being a voice teacher is delicate, since most of the elements with which she is concerned are internal- not to mention that the "voice box" is itself the most delicate and sensitive part of the human body. Unlike any classroom or other group learning situation, including sports, the art of singing can only be taught and learned in a one-on-one situation.

Singing comes from within- both physically and mentally. It is private. It is personal. With guidance from a good and experienced teacher, each students makes his own discoveries.

A student must understand that he needs to put all his trust in his teacher; and, at the same time, gain his teacher's trust. In order to achieve that, he must enter the studio ready to be taught, ready to learn. There must be no hidden agenda nor intention to deceive, and all his weighty baggage must be left outside the studio door. While in the lesson, he must put aside what he already knows- or, at least what he thinks he knows- and be willing to try the new ways suggested to him by his teacher.

In other words, he must come "not-knowing," clear-headed, and ready to absorb new information. Most importantly, he must be honest because honesty to self- and, therefore to his teacher- will free both his mind and his body, enabling him to learn.

In most cases, voice teachers have as their primary goal that their students achieve their own goals. They are sincere and brutally honest. Without this honesty, they will not be able to guide and advise their students how to solve their vocal issues, and how to build and strengthen their singing techniques.

It is clearly a two-way relationship. A student and his teacher must communicate. If one is in the arts for a long time, he will notice that most established artists' relationships with their teachers go way back.

Usually, after just one lesson- and almost always within two or three- the teacher and the new student will be able to tell whether they will be able to have this teaching-learning relationship. A student is not the only one who chooses the teacher; the teacher chooses the student, too.

It is a two-way relationship.
