with Ingrid Heyn
Fully qualified singing teacher, A.Mus.A., L.Mus.A., Melb. Uni.
Good singing requires a strong vocal technique, solid workmanship in knowing your voice and confidence in how you can use your voice. With a secure technique as your basis, you can control what you do, how you do it, and work out exactly how to interpret the song so that you and the music are working together.
With Ingrid Heyn, learn how to work WITH your voice, rather than against it. If you're willing to put in the training, you will find the real beauty of your unique voice.
Private lessons ensure that your vocal needs are met. You won't be lost in the crowd; you'll receive specific information that helps you to work on the specific needs of your voice.
Students wanting to learn just for the pleasure of singing, or to improve their singing in a choir, or wishing to prepare for solo singing are all welcome.
What level of singing is taught? Ingrid teaches absolute beginners right through to advanced performers wanting to work on specific aspects of their singing. Even if you've never sung before, you can learn to sing.
Do I need to know anything about music already? No. It's useful for you if you can already read music, but Ingrid will teach you if you've never read music before.
How often do I need to practise? The more you practise, the faster you will progress. If you're prepared to put in a minimum of ten minutes a day, you will find you gain control at a steady pace. If you're able to give 30 to 40 minutes a day to practising, you will gain control more rapidly. There's no quick-fix - singing takes time, but it's one of the most incredibly rewarding skills you will ever gain in your life.
Does it matter how old I am? Ingrid does not teach children younger than ten, and students younger than sixteen do require careful work to avoid being pushed into vocal demands for which they are not physically ready. But other than that, there's no limit. Whether you're young or old or anywhere in between, it's still a great time to learn how to teach your voice to obey you and to develop those latent musical abilities.
