The Volunteers of Community Theatre Deserve an Endless Ovation

Many of us work full-time jobs, what I refer to as a vocation to support our avocations. And I can’t tell you how many times people ask me after seeing a show or hearing I am in a show, “How much do you get paid for doing this?” Of course, in community theatre, the answer is nothing. The look ...

Stop obsessing over talent—everyone can sing

Children with difficulty singing can be labelled as 'nonmusical' by parents, teachers and pop culture. This toxic idea of 'talent' can deprive people of music's benefits for the rest of their lives.

Choose the Teacher: NOT the School

Young singers can be vulnerable to being impressed with celebrity and this applies to choosing a school as much as anything else. What frequently happens is that the singer may have the mistaken idea that a name school is going to have an excellent faculty. In some cases it could be true. But in other cases it could not be further from the truth.

An article I wrote years ago was published in Classical Singer Magazine entitled, "Searching for a Good Voice Teacher" and in that article I outlined characteristics that describe a good diagnostic instructor. The editor at the time was very supportive of this kind of article because it dispelled the myth that any singer should just trust the name of a school rather than looking at the teaching ability of each individual teacher first.

Diagnostics in the Voice Studio

Before blindly going to any college or university, I recommend that the singer review the faculty and take some private lessons. This way the singer can get an overview of how an instructor works in a studio setting. Is the instructor supportive, positive, knowledgable about the physical workings of the voice, and does the instructor have a large number of diagnostic tools and solutions?

Choosing the Wrong Instructor

I have dealt with both the vocal and emotional damage that choosing the wrong teacher can create. Some singers who come to me with severe vocal issues have attended a name school with a big reputation, thinking that they should just trust the name of the school. In some cases the results have been catastrophic. I remember one soprano who worked with an emotionally and vocally abusive teacher. She lost the entire high range because this instructor pulled her middle register too high when she was vocalized. Yet during her entire study, the singer was blamed for being a 'bad student'.

Investigate and INVEST in Your Future:

My advice to every young singer preparing for college or university? Investigate every teacher before you attend. If this is not allowed, scratch that school from your list of possibilities and go to the next name on the list. Remember NO ONE is more interested in your well-being than you. Protect your voice and your future by making certain that you study in a studio that reflects support for your talent. In my generation, we were taught just to trust anyone in a position of authority and this was a huge mistake that I made personally. It took years to find my voice due to incorrect instruction.

Final Thought: "If it feels wrong, it IS wrong!" I say this to my students all of the time, and if I give something that does not feel correct, we immediately move to something else.

Have a great day! TREASURE your talent and protect it. David
