Should You Get a Voice Coach For Your Child?

Mar 11, 2023 | Voice

There is a lot of information circulated about when to start taking voice lessons or if lessons are suitable for all kids. Knowing if classes are ideal for your child can be challenging as a parent.

If you are a parent who has noticed that your child is interested in singing or has a great voice and wants to help your child learn how to sing, here are some reasons why getting a vocal coach for your kid is a good idea.

Remember—it’s never too early to start singing properly!

1.   Starting “Too Early” Is a Myth

Singing is an incredibly rewarding experience and can open up a whole new world of communication, expression, and creativity for children.

Learning proper alignment, inhalation, and exhalation, how to support sound, and how to access the different parts of your voice will benefit you at any age. There’s no such thing as starting “too early.” At Danny Greenberg Studio, we have had many students who started as young as five or six years old and have gone on to have successful careers as singers and performers.

2.   Vocal Coaches Are for Everyone!

Anyone interested in singing should think about working with a coach, whether they are professionals, just love to belt out in the shower, or just need a little vocal confidence boost. 

You might be surprised to learn that the biggest pop stars frequently bring their vocal coaches along with them on tour, and some even hire a coach to stay with them for extended periods of time! That’s because singers know that a vocal coach takes their voice from good to great by improving both strength and technique.

A good vocal coach will also help students develop their own unique style and sound, find their strengths and weaknesses, and give them the tools they need to be successful as singers!

3.   Improve Range

Your child may be a good singer, but how good is their range? Do they feel that there are avenues for growth? Have they experienced a drastic break in their voice? Do they get vocally tired when singing for an extended period? Do they only feel comfortable in one range? If you’ve noticed your child feeling stiff musically or emotionally, and the answer to any of these questions is yes, then it may be time for your child to benefit from a vocal coach.

However, a voice coach is not a medical professional and cannot resolve problems brought on by illnesses that could affect the voice. If your child is experiencing vocal problems when they are singing and not signing, they may require a visit to an otolaryngologist.

If you are looking for a vocal coach in NYC or online to help with your child’s singing, Danny Greenberg Studio can help. We specialize in coaching children between the ages of 5 and 19, and are one of the best in town.

The Danny Greenberg Studio is a professional performing arts studio for children aged 5 to 18 in New York (Brooklyn and Manhattan!) and online, focusing on vocal and acting training.

 Our students star annually in numerous Broadway shows, national tours, and feature films. Our studio welcomes students of all levels between 6 and 18 to foster their love of performing. Once they’re ready, we also help connect students to top agents and casting directors.

Since our debut, we have focused on three values: children, crafts, and community. Our students develop professional techniques and valuable skills they use inside and outside the studio. We help prepare our students for professional success and make personal impacts through charity cabarets and fundraisers.

We provide private lessons in-person and online in singing, acting, audition coaching, industry professional workshops, showcases, musical theater classes, and admissions prep with curriculums tailored to each child’s needs so they can build their self-confidence. Each year, we coach students for DOE High School auditions, and they consistently get into Laguirdia, Frank Sinatra, and PPAS. We teach acting, singing, and dancing lessons in midtown Manhattan, Greenpoint, and Park Slope Brooklyn. Zoom lessons are also available. Contact us for more information on the admissions process.
