Things to Look for in a Vocal Coach

You may not have thought about it before, but there are a lot of things to consider when looking for a vocal coach. You want someone who is qualified and experienced with teaching singing lessons as well as someone you can trust to be honest with you about your progress.

The best singers know that developing the voice doesn’t just stop after you successfully belt those high notes, because voice coaches can teach them so much more than just how to sing. Having strong vocal training helps set a good foundation, as shown in the audiences’ approval – be it on competing events, or simply just gathering around the piano to jam with your friends and families during parties.

More importantly, you want someone who will be able to work with your schedule!
With that in mind, here are some great questions to ask yourself and also to share with your potential coaches:


  1. What are your goals in studying voice?

Interested in going from being a pretty good singer to an awesome vocalist? A great way is by investing in learning with a vocal coach. Not only do they have the knowledge on how you can improve your skills, they will spot potential problems before it is too late and work around-the-clock until all obstacles are removed from singing.

Knowing what we’re aiming at is the first step in the right direction – whether you want someone to help you train for a vocal studio recording, feel more confident in public speaking or increase your range and boost performance.


  1. Know more about their background and experiences.

While looking for a vocal coach, it is important to ask about their qualifications and experiences, whether they have relevant experiences to work with you to attain your personal goals. A leisure learner doesn’t necessarily need to have a highly qualified coach who has all the distinctions in academics to extract the best potential in him/her. Thus it is important to find a good match! Having the experience of teaching is equally important too – the coach would have met all kinds of students and probably with very similar singing disposition to help work on your root issues effectively.

Therefore at Hark, we not only hire our coaches based on a stringent interview process – we also ensure they have the right personalities of a coach. They have to undergo our Directors’ training for months before teaching regardless of their music qualification and past teaching experiences.

  1. Check their passion for teaching voice.

It is important to seek out vocal coaches who have a passion for their craft and can teach you more than just technical terms. Passion and in-depth understanding of how your singing voice works will help guide you through this journey and inspire you.

The best vocal coaches don’t always come with accolades after their name or decades worth of experience – but learning about them early on may be beneficial because it’s good research material! Our coaches would constantly upgrade themselves and acquire knowledge gained from other sources such as books, articles & blog posts.
