There are a variety of places where people practice singing. Some enjoy singing their favourite songs with friends, others sing in the shower or while riding a bike. Finally, professional singers perform their art on stage, accompanied by a piano, a guitar or an orchestra, in front of thousands of people. Whether you do it as a job or just for fun, singing is a very beneficial activity. First, it is good for our mental health as music has a soothing effect on our minds. Second, it can be a great way to socialise with other people by singing together. Finally, through music, you can express your thoughts and feelings and be heard by thousands or even millions of people.
It's sometimes believed that the ability to sing is an innate talent and if you don't have it, you can't become a musician. This is not true at all! First of all, you can develop your voice by doing vocal exercises and improving your singing techniques. Second, even great high-profile singers haven't become great in one day but had to take lessons and devote a lot of time and effort to their art. In fact, throughout history teaching has been the main means of passing on the musical traditions to younger generations.
Now you may wonder what the role of the teacher is in all this and why we can't just practice singing alone. Well, there is a major reason for this too. In fact, when we sing or talk we don't hear our voice the same way other people do. As a result, we can't be one hundred percent sure that we sound good unless someone else tells us so. The ear of a professional musician can be of priceless help here. And then, when you sing you need to breathe in a certain way and it's extremely important to learn it. Otherwise we can simply damage our vocal cords and be unable to sing for some time. A qualified teacher would help you master the proper breathing technique in view of improving your vocal performance. Who knows, one day you might work in an opera theatre.
You may have heard that professional musicians spend a lot of time training to play the piano or the guitar so well. Even if for singing, you don't need any other instrument than your body, learning to control your voice can be as difficult. Learning how to sing properly is extremely important for budding musicians as it will form a starting point for their future career. Even if you sing with an amp later on, singing techniques will help you develop your voice. But the benefits of music lessons don't stop there. Once we've acquired the proper singing technique, we can start working on the artistic part of our performance. If you're interested in jazz singing you'll need to work on different rhythms and keys. If you're fond of opera and classical music you'll learn what such musical effects as staccato, crescendo or diminuendo are and how to use them to add originality to your performance. A singing tutor will tailor each lesson to your artistic profile and make your learning process easier and quicker and make sure you master them well.
Another important area of study is music theory which you might have heard of at school. It won't improve your voice or your ear for music right away but it's necessary for any singer to understand how music works and to be able to interact with other musicians. It's a very wide area and you could spend years studying it in a university in Auckland. A private teacher can teach you the most important concepts of music theory that you'll really need in your career and then gradually introduce you to more complex topics so you can learn them while you do what you like, which is singing.
To work with other musicians is an important part of a singer's life in a similar way as a student interacts with other students at school. You can of course learn piano and guitar yourself and accompany yourself but it will distract you from your main task which is singing. And then, doing music with others is so much more fun. Why not start by doing a duet with your private teacher? Singing teachers usually play the piano or the guitar very well and will accompany your singing during your lessons. It can be good training for singing with a band or an orchestra later when you become a big star in Auckland or Wellington.
New Zealand is a great country to study music. It has a rich classical music tradition passed down through generations by the New Zealand School of Music in Wellington, as well as numerous high-profile orchestras across the country. Another musical attraction in the country is New Zealand Opera in Auckland. It's a permanent opera theatre giving regular world class performances. It's not surprising that New Zealand has produced a number of internationally famous opera singers like Kiri Te Kanawa, Donald McIntyre or Hayley Westenra and lots of music students come to New Zealand to receive teaching and improve their skills.
In addition to its flourishing classical music scene, New Zealand also has outstanding artists in a variety of other genres ranging from Maori folk music to European heavy metal and jazz. This means that learning how to sing in New Zealand can be inspiring and motivating. You'll be able to attend performances of your favourite bands and artists after your lessons and draw new ideas from their particular styles and manners of singing to perform them with your own voice.
With such a rich musical culture, New Zealand is naturally home to a lot of qualified singing teachers. They may do it professionally or combine teaching with their own artistic performances, in both cases studying with them will be rewarding for you as you'll learn plenty of new things about singing with or without an amp and get their professional point of view on your voice.
Given the wealth of musical tradition in New Zealand, it may be hard to choose a teacher for you. Great musicians will be keen to share their experience with you both in Auckland, Christchurch or Wellington and in smaller cities. The perfect solution in this situation can be Superprof.
