  • What if I need to take a break from lessons?

If you need to take a break from your lessons, please inform our office as soon as possible, and we will work with you to find a suitable arrangement. Please note that resuming the classes after a break will be subject to slot availability, and we cannot guarantee that the same time slot will be available. We encourage you to let us know in advance if you plan to take a break so we can work with you to minimise any disruptions in your music learning journey.
  • How do I enrol in vocal lessons, online or offline?
    To enrol in our music lessons, you can visit our music school or contact us through our website or phone. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have and provide you with more information about our lesson programs. We typically recommend starting with an assessment or trial lesson, which will help us understand your current skill level, learning style, and goals. This information will allow us to tailor our lessons to your specific needs and help you achieve your guitar learning objectives. Once you have completed an assessment or trial lesson, you can choose a lesson program that best suits your needs and schedule. We offer various lesson programs, such as private or group lessons, to cater to different learning preferences. Our staff will guide you through the enrolment process and help you schedule your first lesson. We look forward to welcoming you to our music school and helping you on your music learning journey.
  • How often should I take singing lessons?
    The frequency of lessons should be determined based on your goals, availability, and level of commitment to learning. We recommend twice-a-week lessons for beginners and late beginners. Intermediate and advance students may chose a frequency of lessons that will serve their desired pace of learning. Note: Consistent practice and instruction can help you build and maintain good habits, progress your skills, and ultimately achieve your goals more efficiently. However, we understand that scheduling can be a challenge for some students. If you cannot commit to twice-a-week lessons, once-a-week lesson may be an option. Keep in mind that less frequent lessons will require more independent practice and study time outside of lessons.
  • Do I need any prior experience to take singing lessons?
    Our singing lessons are open to everyone, regardless of prior experience. Whether you're a complete beginner or an experienced singer, our instructors will tailor the lessons to your individual needs and skill level. We focus on building a strong foundation in vocal techniques, music theory, and performance skills, while also fostering confidence and enjoyment in singing. With our personalised approach, we'll work with you at a pace that's comfortable for you, helping you develop your skills and achieve your musical goals. Our inclusive and accommodating approach ensures that all students can benefit from our singing lessons, regardless of their starting point.
  • Can I switch instructors if I don't feel like it's a good fit?
    Yes, you can switch instructors if you don't feel like it's a good fit. We want to ensure that you are getting the most out of your lessons, and we understand that sometimes a different teaching style or personality may be a better match.
  • Can I get a refund?
    We strive to provide exceptional vocal lessons and ensure that our students are satisfied with their progress. If, for any reason, you are not happy with your lessons, you can speak with our academic or course coordinator, and we will work with you to find a solution that meets your needs. However, we have a "No refund" policy, so we recommend that you enrol in our program only after being fully convinced through an assessment or trial session.
  • Can I cancel and reschedule a lesson I reserved?
    Once slots are reserved, cancellation is not permitted. However, we understand that unexpected things can come up, and we will try to accommodate your scheduling needs within the constraints of our policy and availability so long as the need is genuine and the student maintains an excellent attendance record otherwise.
  • How long does it take to learn singing?
    The length of time it takes to learn singing varies depending on several factors such as natural ability, level of commitment, practice schedule, and the complexity of the music genre. Some people may see progress in a few months, while others may take years to achieve their desired level of proficiency. Consistent practice and regular lessons will help you progress more quickly. On average, it may take several months to develop basic singing skills, and several years to achieve advanced vocal proficiency. However, the rate of progress is dependent on individual effort and regularity in attending classes and practicing. On an average we see students gaining basic technical proficiency in the first 3 to 6 months and basic expressive and dynamic proficiency in the first 1-2 years and steadily increase capabilities in compositional and creative thinking skills in just over a year and a few months. This rate of progress is dependant entirely on regularity in attending classes, commitment to practice and extensive music listening and transcription.
  • What is the best age to start taking vocal lessons for children?
    The best age to start taking vocal lessons for children can vary based on individual factors, such as the child's physical development, emotional maturity, and interest in singing. However, we suggest that children can start taking formal voice lessons around the age of 8 or 9, once they have developed some basic reading and comprehension skills and their vocal cords have begun to mature and can engage in activity oriented learning in the ages of 5 or 6. It's important to note that every child is unique, and it's important to work with the child's individual abilities and needs.
  • Can I request specific songs to learn?
    Absolutely! We encourage you to bring in songs that you want to learn, and we'll work with you to teach you the necessary techniques to play them.
  • How much time should I practice between lessons?
    The amount of time you should spend practicing in between lessons depends on your goals, skill level, and schedule. Generally speaking, it's important to practice consistently, rather than for long periods of time all at once. Here are some general guidelines: Beginner students: For beginners, it's recommended to practice for at least 20-30 minutes per day, several times a week. As you progress, you can gradually increase the amount of time spent practicing. Intermediate students: For intermediate students, it's recommended to practice for 30-60 minutes per day, several times a week. Again, as you progress, you can gradually increase the amount of time spent practicing. Advanced students: For advanced students, it's recommended to practice for at least 60-90 minutes per day, several times a week. However, the amount of time spent practicing will depend on your specific goals and repertoire. Remember that the quality of your practice is more important than the quantity of time spent practicing. It's better to have a focused and productive practice session, even if it's shorter in duration. Your teachers will work with you to develop a practice routine that meets your specific needs and goals.
  • Are online vocal classes effective?
    With high-quality online platforms, experienced teachers and specifically designed class methods for the digital learning experience, online classes can be just as effective as in-person lessons. Plus, you can avoid the hassle of transportation and enjoy the convenience of scheduling classes around your own schedule. Online music classes offer a flexible and convenient option for anyone looking to develop their musical skills from the comfort of their own home. Give online music lessons a try and see the benefits for yourself!
  • How do I pay for vocal lessons?
    We accept various forms of payment including UPI, cash, credit/debit card, and online payment through our app, website or office. You can pay for lessons monthly or in packs.
  • What is the duration of a vocal lesson?
    Our in-person lessons run for a duration of 55 minutes per hour and online lessons for 45 minutes.
  • What are the basic requirements that you'll need to have for online vocal lessons?
    To take online vocal lessons, you'll need a few basic requirements: A computer, laptop, or mobile device with a stable internet connection. A webcam and a microphone, preferably built into your computer or laptop. If not, you can use an external webcam and microphone for better sound quality. A quiet and well-lit environment where you won't be disturbed during the lesson. Headphones or earbuds to improve audio quality and reduce feedback or echoes. A music stand
