Preparing for Your Singing Lesson


Preparing for a singing lesson with The Voice Mechanic is crucial to make the most of your time and ensure a productive and enjoyable experience. Here are some things you can do to get ready for your singing lesson:

Lightly warm-Up Your Voice:

Learn a song to sing that you want to try at your lesson. But only speak the words in a low octave; in your speaking range.


Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your vocal cords hydrated. Avoid drinks with caffeine or excessive sugar, as they can dehydrate your body.

Avoid Eating Right Before the Lesson:

Try not to eat a heavy meal right before your singing lesson. Eating a large or rich meal can lead to discomfort and may affect your breath control and overall performance. Aim to have a light meal or snack at least an hour before your lesson.

Limit Dairy Intake on the Day of the Lesson:

Dairy products, such as milk and cheese, can create excess mucus in the throat, which may affect your vocal clarity. Limit your intake of dairy on the day of your lesson to minimize the risk of phlegm interfering with your singing.

Rest Your Voice:

Avoid excessive talking or yelling before your lesson. Give your vocal cords some rest to ensure they are in optimal condition.

Bring Materials:

Have any sheet music, lyrics, or other materials ready for your lesson. If you’re working on a particular song, make sure you have the music or lyrics printed out or know how to find it on YouTube.

Set Goals:

Identify specific goals or challenges you want to address during the lesson. This could be related to pitch, breath control, or interpretation. Having clear goals helps you and your teacher focus on areas that need improvement.

Dress Comfortably:

Wear comfortable clothing that allows for unrestricted movement. Proper breathing and posture are essential in singing, so choose attire that supports these aspects.

Ask Questions:

Prepare any questions you may have about singing techniques, exercises, or the music you’re working on. Your singing lesson is an opportunity to learn, so take advantage of your teacher’s expertise.

Be Open-Minded:

Approach your lesson with an open mind and a willingness to try new things. Your teacher may introduce exercises or techniques that can benefit your overall vocal development.

Remember, communication with The Voice Mechanic is key. If you have specific concerns or preferences, don’t hesitate to discuss them before or during the lesson. This helps create a tailored learning experience that suits your individual needs and goals.
