Whether you are a complete beginner who wants to learn the basics of how to sing correctly or an experienced singer looking for a Nashville vocal coach who can take you to the next level, Susan Anders can design a vocal lesson path that will work for your individual needs as a singer. Susan has coached thousands of professional and budding singers in all contemporary vocal styles: rock, country, jazz, musical theater, R&B, and folk. Her technique is an effective, comprehensive method designed for the non-classical singer, tailored to work with your style of music. That means, for example, that if you sing gritty blues rock you will not come out of voice lessons sounding like a Broadway singer--or vice versa!
In private sixty minute sessions you'll learn:
- All the essentials: breathing, support, placement, relaxation,
projection, how to increase your vocal range, volume, resonance, diction, how to warm up, general care and strengthening of your voice.
- All the polish: interpretation, vocal style, phrasing, belting, improvising, tone, runs,
performance skills, mic technique.
- All the extras: how to harmonize, studio/performance preparation, how
to find or create a band, music theory and sight singing, building a
repertoire, songwriting, and goal defining.
Private singing lessons are $60/hour, beginners to pros welcome. Bands or friends
wishing to study together are also welcome and may split the cost. Lessons
are on the west end of Nashville, Tennessee.
You can pay for your lesson with cash or check at the time of your lesson, or if you prefer you can pay for one, two or four lessons at a time via secured credit card. The four lesson price includes a discount: please note that the four lessons must all be taken within a two month period.
If you are not one of Susan's ongoing students please contact Susan for her availability before purchasing a lesson.
