FOX MUSIC’S SOLO VOCAL ACADEMY

Fox Music’s Solo Vocal Academy truly makes our studio one of a kind and has won Gold in the Virginia Pilot’s Best of Competition four years in a row for Best Performing Arts Studio. Most voice teachers offer only vocal technique for their students and most performance training programs offer only stage skills. Through our Solo Vocal Academy’s many programs we provide a unique method of combining both! Our students find the learning environment fun and challenging. Our tried and tested programs make us the premier choice for vocal study in the Hampton Roads area. Come see why everyone is saying, “Wow, there’s nothing else like this”!

Fox Music’s Voice teachers are some of the best anywhere. Well-trained, experienced, and with extensive backgrounds, Fox Music’s professional voice teachers are excellent instructors and role models. Fox Music’s vocal coaches focus on the individual needs of each student and work to help them meet and even exceed their goals. Our voice teachers turn most quiet, shy, and doubtful beginners into strong, outgoing leaders that become powerful performers and confident singers.

We understand that everyone’s singing voice is different. We will help build you a custom vocal training plan with specific exercises designed for your unique voice. Let us help you meet your individual goals as both a singer and performer through our individualized, results based approach.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Voice Lessons are beneficial for any style of singing. We train singers for pop, rock, country, gospel, contemporary Christian, traditional church music, R&B, jazz, as well as Broadway, opera, oratorio, art song and choral work, and just about any style of music in which beautiful singing is important. In our voice lessons we focus on exercises and music that leads to the development of an effortless, beautiful, and powerful tone that is flexible and controlled, from the lowest note to the highest note within a very wide singing range. Students should understand that some styles lend themselves to this goal more than other styles. It is the long-term results of vocal study that can be applied to any style of music.

The voice is produced by a set of muscles that needs to be developed, coordinated, and refined. We develop a voice just as an athlete develops his/her physical skill. In order to develop muscles, those muscles must be exercised regularly and vigorously enough gain strength, but not so much as to abuse the voice. The amount of exercise to do, and the way to exercise differs with each singer. During the voice lessons we work together to create an exercise routine for your voice. The exercise routine changes weekly as your ability gradually increases. As students progress, we apply the developing skills to music.

We teach singers of all abilities and aspirations. Some people are driven for success, and we are here to help them go as far as they can. Other people just want to have fun and see what happens. We’re happy to help you either way. Improving your singing increases your enjoyment of life no matter what your goal is.

We love to teach beginners because they come to us without preconceived ideas about how to sing. Very often a beginner can make faster progress than an experienced singer, because the experienced singer must break old habits before he/she can improve.

Yes. Our singing lessons offer children an excellent introduction to vocal instruction. We offer a pre-school program open to children ages 4 and up, and an elementary program for children ages 7-12.

Through the years many people have come to us believing they were tone deaf (unable to hear the difference in pitches). Out of thousands of students, we can’t remember any who were really tone deaf. Usually pitch problems are the result of a muscular imbalance or a need to learn to listen in the right way. Most people can develop the ability to sing in tune, but it takes hard work and patience.

Every voice can improve with proper training. You won’t know how good you can get unless you try it. Many students have started voice lessons very dissatisfied with their singing abilities and discovered wonderful voices hiding inside.

This question is like a weight lifter asking how long will it take to build his/her body. Much depends on how hard you work at it. A lot depends on your ability when you start, and more importantly, where you want to go. Not everyone wants to win a body building championship, and not everyone wants to sing at the Met. Many people find impressive results within 6 months. Vocal study can last a lifetime. Generally speaking, vocal development is a long-term process. If you are hoping for big results in a few weeks, try something else.

Education and experience speak for themselves. When you compare our credentials to those of most voice teachers, the difference is clear. But practically speaking, the only way to evaluate a voice teacher is by the results of his/her teaching. See Testimonials. Unfortunately, you can’t know this ahead of time, and you could waste many months finding out for yourself. After six months of study, results should be obvious. If there isn’t significant, objective, and measurable growth in terms of range, power, and control, you should consider the voice lessons ineffective. There can be only two reasons for this: 1) the student isn’t doing what he/she was instructed to do, or 2) the teacher doesn’t know how to guide the student properly. All of us have busy lives these days, and convenience is certainly important. But, if you want real vocal growth, not just playing around, study with the best voice teacher you can find.
