There are different ways to approach singing lessons (or songwriting lessons, piano lessons or guitar lessons as well). The professional usually is under pressure to “get their act together” to help their performances. The approach for that situaion is often (at least weekly)lessons to get quicker results for performances. However, the amateur is a totally different ballgame. There are people who wish they could sing or write songs – or play guitar or piano. Many amateurs are reluctant to undertake lessons, because they don’t think they have the time to devote to their development. However, I have worked with many amateurs. I have found that a little practice each week over a long period of time can be very satisfying. I have some students who come every other week, because they just don’t have the time or lifestyle to come in more often than that. The end result is that they become better singers, songwriters or musicians over time. The option is no movement at all. Sometimes slow and steady does win the race.
