“Using a mix of practical experience and technical knowledge, my goal is to nurture and instruct developing singers and advise and support experienced ones.”
Why use a Vocal Coach and how is a Vocal Coach different than a Voice Teacher?
Like the name suggests, a “Vocal Coach” is a professional whose job is to “coach” a singer’s voice. Often, the term “Vocal Coach” is a blanket term used by anyone who improves the performance of their student.
A Vocal Coach’s job is to improve the performance. While a Vocal Coach may also use the title “Voice Teacher”, they may not possess the same level of education. It would be odd, as an example, for a music professor at a university to call themselves a “Vocal Coach”, even if they teach private lessons. A vocal Coach’s job rests on the assumption that a student is already able to sing well and just needs coaching in order to achieve a goal.
Some students who seek a Vocal Coach may be preparing for an audition or are studying a character for a performance.
So while a Voice Teacher is able to instruct a student of any level, the Vocal Coach must meet the student where they’re at and work primarily on improving the performance of a singer. In addition to coaching a performance, a Vocal Coach may also focus on stage movement, “acting” a song, honing vocal style or many other subjects related to the voice.
