The Singing Place welcomes teens and young adults that would like to express themselves but have a hard time opening up to those around them. We have worked with many students that feel too shy to sing for their parents or friends but have opened up in private lessons. We love helping students find self confidence and motivation through musical education.
What Makes Teens and Young Adults Different?
Many go through a period of angst during the rapid development of their brains and bodies, characterized by intense feelings of anxiety or depression. This can lead to feelings of isolation, loneliness, insecurity, and lack of motivation.
How Does Singing Help with Motivation?
Developing a passion gives us feelings of success and achievement. Students will see their singing abilities progress as they come to lessons, this gives them a sense of accomplishment and purposefulness.
How Does Voice Lessons Help Your Self Confidence?
Singing can be a very intimidating experience for those that are not used to being heard. By conquering one fear, we find that students have greater success in conquering fears in other aspects of their lives. Learning how to stop fearing rejection leads to feelings of self-trust and deeper self-acceptance.
How Does Singing Help with Depression?
Music has been showed to significantly decrease the levels of the stress hormone cortisol, leading to improved mood and cognitive functioning. Singing has been scientifically proven to reduce anxiety levels.
How Does Singing Help Self Expression?
The Singing Place provides a safe place to express themselves and release their emotions in a healthy manner. We encourage student’s to sing songs of their own choosing, expressing what they have experienced. Students work with their teachers one-on-one in a private setting so even students that suffer from shyness or insecurity will begin to open up and share their creative expression. We are passionate about helping students live a life of authentic self-expression.
Isn’t Choir at School good enough?
Individualized attention encourages much more growth. Students feel more comfortable away from peer pressure. We encourage students to look beyond their current circumstances and think about the future. A passion for a life in music has been life changing and extremely motivating for many of our students.
My Teen Won’t Sing For Me, Would Lessons Help?
Some teens feel very shy expressing themselves in front of their parents. This is a common part of the self identity process. Singing feels very personal, teens need encouragement and advice from an outside source before they feel comfortable enough to sing for anyone that may have expectations. We have seen many teens grow into their voices through lessons and become proud enough of their voice to share it with the people they care about the most.
