Singing Lessons: Before

Learning Outcomes:

  • Shown perseverance and commitment in their activities.
  • Developed new skills.

Goal: To become a better singer and be able to participate in a real concert or recital.

I am starting my singing lessons in a couple of days, and I have to say I am truly excited. I have been told I sing well by my family and friends, but their opinions were obviously biased. This is the first time I will be forced to sing in front of people I don’t know all by myself, and that is quite daunting. However, I am ready to try and eager to learn how to better control my voice along the way.

I expect the first few classes to be introductory, filled with breathing exercises and voice training, which I will probably need to learn in order to train and prepare my voice before singing. After that, I imagine the classes will slowly start getting more and more dynamic and entertaining as I, along with the rest of my classmates, start evolving as singers and getting better at our craft. I heard that the music school I go to likes to organize a concert around February every year, so I will try to train my voice appropriately so that I can participate as well

However, some problems may arise, and I will have to deal with them. Aside from my lack of expertise, which I imagine everyone in my class will share, I do suffer quite often from sore throats and the like. This may affect my singing abilities, unless my teacher teaches me some ways to avoid this. In addition to this, I am rather anxious about who my classmates will be, and about whether our voices and personalities will be compatible. If they are not, I think I will be able to deal with it fine, but it’s always better to work and, of course, sing with people you get along with. Still, none of these problems will discourage me. I love to sing and nothing will get in my way!
