I love this question because unlike other questions this has a very simple and straightforward black and white answer. Yes. You do. It really is as simple as that. See here’s the thing. No matter how well you can sing naturally, without SOME kind of professional vocal tuition, you won’t be as good as you can be. Think about it. Celine Dion, one of the best female vocalists ever, trains with her vocal coach most days. Oh yeh. Now that’s a singer that was sensational at the age of 14 and who even without any training whatsoever can probably still run rings around me, you……most of us. So what? That’s not her concern. HER concern is to be in the best vocal shape possible. Hayley Williams, the lead singer of Paramour? Trains with U.S vocal coach and C.E.O of “Singing Success” Brett Manning. I believe he even goes on tour with her. That’s also fairly standard for the bigger earning performers. Does Christina Aguiliera train with a vocal coach. Yes. Beyonce? You betcha. See where I’m going with this? Your ‘natural talent’ nonwithstanding, you will just simply be a better singer with some lessons. You may have a couple of weird little bad habits that you’re not aware of which could easily be taken care of with a decent teacher. Now let’s be clear about this. Singing lessons will not make you talented. Your natural talents and abilities are what you’re born with. There’s no doubt there. But again, thats not really the point. Lessons will improve your stamina, power, range, breath control and in turn, your confidence. Trust me, it works. . Keep in mind though that it’s not like a cooking class ie here’s how you make an omelette. Now go home and do it. Singing lessons are more like Personal Training Fitness sessions. I train with a personal trainer once a week. If I miss a week, I feel it. Singing lessons are more like that. Professional highly paid singers like Mariah Carey or Rihanna can afford of course to have a vocal coach session every day. I won’t lie, again, it’s like having a daily session with a fitness trainer. There’s just NO WAY that if I worked out with my wonderful trainer every day that I wouldn’t be a great shape. However that’s not possible so I settle for once a week. But I have no intention of quitting that once a week session because apart from the benefits of that actual session, it keeps me on track with my fitness all week. Singing lessons are kinda like that. But you do have to do a decent amount of lessons before you get any benefits. Don’t expect results in anything less than ten lessons. If a teacher promises you differently, they’re scamming you. It’s just simply not true. There’s just way too much to do and ideally I tell clients that they should be aiming at a thirty lesson plan done once a week. Find a teacher you like the look and sound of and give it a go.
