The Academy of Music offers voice lessons & singing lessons in Oakville for children and adults of all ages
(For ages 7 and up)
Our voice teachers primarily focus on popular music and are comfortable with classical and jazz as well. If you have always wanted to be a better rock, pop, country, jazz, gospel or R&B singer, then we have the right voice teachers for you. Voice students spend time in each lesson doing physical exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone production, enunciation and more. All voice students set goals with their teacher to work on sounding like their favorite recording artists, or if they prefer, to develop their own unique voice.
Here are a few of the things a student will learn in singing lessons:
- How to breathe properly
- How to increase their range
- Pitch Control
- How to read music and understand theory
- How to project
- Stage presence
Our school offers at least 2 optional performance opportunities in Oakville every year with a Christmas recital and a Spring concert. We also have students that perform at local festivals and events. Our private, one-on-one voice lesson lengths are 30 minutes or 1 hour.

START SINGING LESSONS AT THE RIGHT AGE?
We recommend children be 7 years old before they start vocal lessons. Learning how to sing requires a fairly developed lung capacity. Children under 7 may find certain voice techniques too difficult and physically demanding. It’s often better for a child to wait until they are physically ready as to avoid potential problems in the future. This should not be confused with singing in music lessons. Singing along with the melody in your music lessons is extremely important and valuable. Simply singing along quietly is unlikely to damage your voice where as learning how to project and sing from your diaphragm requires more development.
SING IN A MUSIC RECITAL
Singing in a music recital is one of the best ways for parents to know if their kids are really learning in their vocal lessons. Preparing for a performance means that you need to practice singing one or two songs until you are ready to perform them. This also gives the students and teachers something specific to work on in their lessons. Oakville Academy of Music offers 2 big recitals every year as well as several opportunities to sing at different events like seniors home and music festivals.
