Singing Lessons (Voice Training)
The voice is an instrument and at Cavan Academy of Music our aim during the course of voice training/singing lessons is to get the most out of your own unique voice. During a lesson, the tutor will work on technique with warm ups otherwise known as vocal gymnastics.
These warm ups are a little like stretching before going jogging and are an essential part of the class. Breathing is also worked on as well as vocal exercises which broaden the students range and strengthen the vocal chords.
The repertoire used in the class will be determind by the student’s needs. For example, are they studying for an exam or are they learning for fun? Students wishing to go forward for exams are fully prepared from elementary level to Grade VIII through the The Royal Irish Academy of Music. There are two singing syllabuses with The Royal Irish Academy of Music focused on classical material while the Theatrical syllabus concentrates on material from the musicals.
While music theory is optional it is advised that students strongly consider taking this as additional subject to compliment the instrument being learned. Students will also be fully prepared for any Junior and Leaving Cert Practical exams.
