Do you want to start to sing?

You are looking for singing lessons, but:

  • You sing out of tune
  • You’re scared to sing alone in front of others
  • Your voice is hoarse quickly.
  • You don’t like the sound of your voice.
  • Or your partner/friends tell you, you sound terrible when you sing.

Therefore you never took the step of starting lessons. Then the group singing lessons for adult beginners are your way to start a vocal journey. In these group lessons, you will meet other people like you who are keen on improving their voice.

You’re not alone! In fact, that’s how most of the singers started out. That’s why the group singing lessons for adult beginners are the way to start, together with other people like you who are keen on improving their voice.

What’s in the singing course?

In this singing course you start as you would start from any other instrument: from the beginning.

This means that you don’t have to be able to read notes, have experience in singing in a choir or solo, be able to sing in tune or have great confidence in your singing voice.

From singing simple songs together, you will learn how to improve your pitch and your tone. You will also get a basic understanding of music. Singing ugly or out of tune is going to be part of the fun, because only by trying out you can improve.

What do the group singing lessons look like?

Every lesson we will start with a vocal warmup to warm up your voice and to get used toe ach other. We’ll do a body warmup and three simple vocal exercises. You will get some tips on how to use your body efficiently while singing.

After that we will do a recap of the previous lesson.

Next we will work on tone and pitch. This can be with an exercise like holding a tone, while someone else sings another tone. Or by singing really easy lines from sheet music.

Then together we will practice a simple song. We will check where the  difficulties are and how we can practice them.

After the lesson, you won’t go home unprepared. Thanks to the video lessons in your online student area, you can re-watch the lessons so that you won’t forget anything. Plus, with the Studio MusicalMente Music Planner, you’ll immediately know what and how to practice.

Some students struggle to read notes. That’s why we also included the Studio MusicalMente Reading Notes Workbook in the price for you to get your reading skills quickly on a good level!

Boukje van Gelder

Vocal Teacher

Boukje started singing when she was two years old. After playing piano and cello she started with vocal lessons and later decided that she wanted to be a singer. She loves to sing Bach and American song repertoire. In her Bachelor’s she did an internship in which she had to give vocal lessons and she liked it so much that she wants to continue to teach.

“To make music with your voice is something beautiful and also personal because every voice has its own sound and colour. With all my vocal teachers I learned different ways to find my own sound in a way that feels free. Now I like to help other people with finding their own sound.”
