Contemporary singing lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced vocalists

BEGINNER/Intermediate/Advanced

Do you dream of becoming a famous singer like Beyoncè, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, or Rihanna? Then the contemporary singing program at Edora Music School will ideally suit you, as it has been designed for everyone wishing to master correct singing posture and modern Western manners of singing and techniques.

The contemporary style of singing is fundamentally different from the classical one. Modern vocalists use other principles of sound production, singing posture, and breathing control, so it is a big mistake to build contemporary singing lessons on a classical, operatic approach. When opera singers start signing well-known favorite songs with the lowered larynx, “yawn” or “round” shape for most vowels, etc., it often sounds inappropriate, unnatural, and even comical. Classically trained vocalists cannot produce sound differently because of the many years they spent on building the traditional manner of singing and developing classical singing skills. Unfortunately, nowadays, not all teachers separate those two approaches: classical and modern. Using classical technique for performing a modern popular song can negatively affect the tone of your voice, and the singer’s habits will only fix with years, and it will not be easy to get rid of them in the future. Vocal teachers at Edora Music School will teach you contemporary singing techniques and styles. These lessons are for you if you dream to learn such musical genres as pop, rock, soul, blues, and musical theater. Choose any song you want to learn, and our teachers will help you find the right key to sing in and choose the backing tracks for you. It does not matter if you are a beginner or an advanced vocalist, we will help you master your voice to perfection.

Edora Music School is a classically oriented school where the education is organized using modern computer technologies. We provide our students with an opportunity to learn musical singing with a personal teacher online through Skype.

According to recent research, the effectiveness of education under a teacher’s supervision is 70% higher compared to self-study by online music courses and various YouTube lessons. However, you can learn singing on your own, but it would not be worth it especially if you are a beginner. This is because most times, to learn on your own a piece of music effectively takes a few months. During this period probably, you would lose motivation and confidence in yourself.
In other words, various online music courses & tutorials that are promoted on the Internet, despite the growing popularity, will not replace the live communication with the teacher, and would not give you the desired rapid progress.

Besides, self-study does not give you a real assessment and evaluation of your performance level, which often leads to failures and mistakes such as the wrong choice of a song (for instance, an advanced musical composition that is a few levels higher than your current level). You might even stop practicing and lose all interest in studying.

The teachers of Edora Music School will help you love singing.
