PRIVATE LESSONS

Our lessons are tailored to your musical goals

Private Singing Lessons 1 - Private lessons

Private singing lessons are perfect for students who want to focus in detail on their technique development and explore individualised repertoire options. Private lessons are also suitable for students who have many specific performances to prepare for (eg auditions, gigs, HSC) or require advanced technique development.

Admission

Private singing lessons are open to all students aged 5 - adult. We cater for students from beginners right through to active working professionals.

Delivery

At the Sydney Vocal Academy (Kirrawee) studios, or online.

Schedule

Private lessons are scheduled according to teacher and student availability, and can be taken weekly, fortnightly or casually. Fortnightly lessons are only available to adult students, and children/teens who do regular SVA workshops or another instrument at SVA - otherwise the length of time between lessons is too long to maintain momentum.

Fees

$46.50 per 30 minute lesson, or $52 per 30 minute lesson with our head singing teacher, Tim Moxey

Exams

Private lesson students can prepare for AMEB Musical Theatre and Rockschool Vocals examinations. These exam syllabuses have a traditional option (ie pieces with technical work, aural tests, sight reading and general knowledge) or a performance only option (ie pieces only).

We recommend that all students work through an exam syllabus, as it's an excellent way to maintain focus and it set students up for continual improvement. Not only that, but students who reach high exam levels (generally towards the end of high school or later) can earn performance diplomas. However, we know that exams aren't everyone's thing, and it's also possible to work through the exam syllabus without actually sitting for the exams, or to focus on other repertoire altogether. Read more about exams here.

Commitment

Students taking private lessons should be willing to practice repertoire and technical work at home. To get the most out of lessons, we recommend students commit to at least 3 x 30 minute practice sessions at home each week, and preferably more.

Performance Opportunities

We hold multiple concerts throughout the year, and private singing students have the opportunity to be involved in these.
