How To Find A Good Singing Teacher For Voice Lessons
Question – I am taking singing lessons now but it seems like every time I sing my voice starts to get a little shaky and it cracks now and then. What should I do to remedy my vocal problems?
Morgan Cryar replies – You are experiencing a very common singing issue and if I have a dime for everytime I've heard some version of this question, I'd be as rich as Bill Gates.
You are paying for lessons with a vocal coach and are NOT getting good results, I'm afraid I have to place the responsibility on, well, you. You have to take full responsibility for your own voice training lessons and you must find the right singing teacher to facilitate that training.
Choosing a singing teacher
"Well, how do you know I don't have the right teacher?" The answer is simple, because if you have chosen the right singing teacher, you wouldn't feel like you have to write to me to get this question answered.
The issues would be getting addressed right now, by your own singing teacher. If you have the right teacher for you, he or she can address your vocal problems with the advantage of actually hearing and seeing you sing. This seems like common sense but that is what you should expect from your singing teacher you are paying good money for, isn't it?
In the meantime, I have good and bad news for you. The bad news is that anyone can just call themselves a singing teacher and start charging for singing lessons regardless of whether they know what they are doing or not. Since the American Idol series begun, "singing teachers" have sprung up everywhere.

But how do you know if the singing teacher you are choosing is competent? You know what? The irony is that even if someone gets a singing teacher's music degree from a university, they still may not know what they are doing. I had lessons from a university-trained "singing coach" that almost ruined my voice.
So, how do you ascertain that you vocal coach is competent? Well, there is only one way to find out. You have to try out their singing lessons for yourself or get a reliable referral from someone who has tried it and gotten good results.
Now here is the good news. We all live in a free country where you can choose to shop around until you find a voice teacher or coach that delivers the results you want.
It can of course be rather expensive to do just that because each time you go to a new singing teacher, you will have to pay for the lessons, whether or not the lessons are effective.
Now, here is an obvious tip - Don't ever pay for a second bad lesson!! Keep on looking until you find someone who can hand you real results. Period!
Now, wouldn't it be nice if you could have some "sample" lessons before putting your money on the table? What if singing teachers aren't so secretive and self-preserving that they would let you "try before you sign up for paid lessons?"
Well, there is a group of singing teachers that will guarantee their lessons from the first singing lesson. If you go in for a singing lesson and don't see some positive movement or simply just don't like their teaching style, they will not charge you--not even for that first lesson.

Just who are these awesome vocal teachers? They are Brett Manning Associates. I know these guys and they stand by their products and their teachings. If Associates Kelly Goolsby or Jesse Nemitz ever gave a singing lesson and the student was dissatisfied, they would insist that the student do not pay anything. How's that for credibility, eh?
Brett and Associates keep full calendars, so why would they offer such a policy? This is because they are remarkably confident in their method since none of them have had a first-timer walking out dissatisfied and also because it is just the right thing to do.
The problem is that Brett's Associates are in Nashville, Tennessee. So except for phone in and video-Skype lessons, which all of them do, you are required to be physically present in Nashville Tenesse to study singing with them.
One very effective solution is their Singing Success CD program which you can have these great singing teachers coaching you in the comfort of your own home. Brett Manning even has a 6 month guarantee on his 12 CD singing lesson program.
So should I take singing lessons? Well, check out Brett Manning's singing lessons and then decide for yourself.
