I don't have any prior musical experience - can I still come for lessons?

I am shy and want to build self-confidence - can I do this through singing?

Yes, learning any musical instrument will help promote self-confidence as well as getting a great understanding of the dedication, motivation and practise needed to succeed in any walk of life. Being able to control your voice can also help in many other areas of your life, from presenting information in meetings at work to being able to captivate an audience at a theatre.

Absolutely, I have helped many singers prepare their voice to give a one of performance at the full extent of their vocal ability - whether it was in the recording studio or for a wedding it is something we can do during our lessons. However, do note that we might draw in other songs and exercises to help you sing the song of your choice to your full ability. 

How long does it take to learn to sing?

That very much depends on your ambition - if it is to hold a tune in a way that other people can enjoy then it might only take a few months to be able to develop your vocal strength and control to do this. If it is to create a distinctive, world-renowned voice it can take a lifetime of dedication to achieve - indeed, I feel that I am still learning and developing myself as a singer and performer.
