Find Their Voice
Let Manuel Creative Arts Academy help them find their voice! Studies show that children who have taken lessons are more confident and have more self-esteem in all areas of their life as well as a wide range of other social and academic enhancements¹. Students with a quality music education score up to 17% higher in mathematics and 19% higher in English².
We work with students ages 10 and up of all skill levels and backgrounds and are excited to go on this journey with your child, find out more by scheduling an introductory lesson, getting our “Five Ways To Improve Your Singing”, or emailing us at: [email protected]
- All our students feel like rock stars! Because we make sure each lesson is both fun and enriching.
- We provide a clear lesson plan complete with goals, achievement levels, and performances.
- We use a song based teaching system so our students are learning songs they love while they get the academic benefits of music.
- Multiple student recitals annually.
- Access to their teacher for multiple lessons per week if desired.
- Guidance on how to efficiently practice between lessons.
- We don’t overbook ourselves so our current students get the full benefit of our energy.
- Music lessons have other great benefits like: Better grades, higher self esteem, more confidence, and good social skills. We’ve seen this proven over and over, and we know that we’re teaching so much more than music.
What Do Lessons Actually Look Like
People have a lot of preconceptions about what happens in a voice lesson, but what actually happens is pretty simple.
- Getting Settled (1-2 minutes)
- Vocal Warmups/Technical exercises. This is the part that a lot of people think of when they think about lessons; lots of scales, weird noises, endless arpeggios. This is where we work on building a solid technical footing for your singing. We promise it’s actually a lot of fun. (10-15 minutes)
- Repertoire Work. For Beginning and Intermediate students a large part of the lesson is spent working on learning songs that have been selected by the student and the teacher, this includes learning notes and rhythms, discussing artistic choices that are appropriate for the song, and working through challenging technical aspects of the music. Advanced students usually need less help with the notes and rhythms so more time is spent on the artistic choices. (40-45 minutes)
- Recap & Goodbye (1-2 Minutes)
- Music Theory and History is worked in as appropriate throughout the entire lesson.
