The voice is the most personal and powerful musical instrument in the world; it's so commanding that if anyone is singing in a band, the audience assumes that person is the leader. As voice instructors we recommend it for many musicians of all ages, children, kids, teens, and adults. We think it is best that a student begins on the kind of music they love: blues, bluegrass, broadway and musical theatre, classical, classic or modern rock, country and western, gospel, jazz, opera, pop, R&B (rhythm and blues) or whatever.


Any kind of vocalist has the ability to sing as a soloist or with a group, whether that group is a choir or a rock band. Usually the singer performs with an accompaniment, whether live of with a CD; although it is quite lovely, the percentage of true solo singing (a capella) is quite small. While there are many styles, there are 3 broad types of singing: pop, broadway (musical theatre), and classical. Pop singing includes blues, rock, country, jazz, and metal (to name a few) and is characterized by newer songs, informal delivery, and medium tone. Broadway singing is characterized by show tunes, sometimes requires louder volume, and in bygone years, belting. Classical singing typically uses a darker tone and a more formal declamation style. In the first lessons we discuss with new students their interests and desires and determine which style they wish to sing in (or if they want to sing in multiple styles). Each style has it's strengths and weaknesses, but there's really no "best" way to sing as long as you are using good technique.


Most of our voice students take private, one-on-one lessons; we also offer group classes (when comparing studios online over the internet, be sure to clarify whether you are talking about private or group lessons. Semi-private lessons are group lessons). We offer consultations (one session without obligation to continue) and coaching sessions (multiple sessions without obligation to continue). We also offer elessons, which are online singing lessons conducted through the internet. We have gift certificates for all of these musical experiences. And twice a year we have exciting music seminars (master classes, workshops) for all students that allow them to hear big ideas about music and their voice. These increase their knowledge and abilities to sing. In these music seminars (again, like workshops or master classes, in-depth teaching on vocals) we might talk about improvisation or scatting, or ear-training, or specific skills for the classical vocalist, or how to sing show tunes – but all to give you, the performer and singer, teaching you can use right now. And they're fun! About 40% of our students are adults and 60% are children, kids, and teens.


As voice instructors, we know it is essential that vocal coaching be enjoyable. This is a key for all students, not just children. That's one of the reasons we let students pick their music within a few guidelines and why, along with singing by note and reading music, we encourage students to sing by ear and/or improvise. We don't want to be a stuffy academy or music conservatory; we want our school of music to be filled with happy, amazing performers having a blast. Whether reading music, singing by note, learning toimproviseor scat, or learning songs from their iPod, our students steadily learn things that interest them, coached by their instructor. We believe it's best to allow students tosingtheir favorite music, not their instructor's.


Our singing instructors take your goals seriously, so, as the wise mentors they are, they look ahead to teach you all you'll need to get where you want to be. It's vital that musical educators coach each learner on how to grow as much as possible, whether that person just wants to learn to sing Happy Birthday at home, solo in their rock band, teach at a music conservatory, or have the lead in Tosca. So, coming from Addison, Allen, Carrollton, North Dallas, Farmers Branch, Frisco, Garland, Lewisville, McKinney, Park Cities, Plano, Richardson, Rowlett, Wylie or anywhere within 50 miles of here in Texas (or worldwide over the internet online through elessons) we are committed to your personal vocal success.


We have singing instructors at Promethean Studios for beginning, intermediate, advanced, and professional singing students. Our singing instructors customize our teaching to the music each player loves, with personalized instruction going on right now in bluegrass, blues, broadway, Contemporary Christian, classic and modern rock, classical, country and western, folk, funk, fusion, gospel, latin, metal, musical theatre, opera, pop, praise & worship, R&B (rhythm and blues), smooth and traditional jazz, soul, and traditional hymn styles. Each lesson includes learning technique (to make the learner's vocal apparatuswork for them), instruction in music theory (to use the learner's brain to help make music easy), and half of each lesson is devoted to the student's songs.


While we never require anyone to sing in public, we believe performing is one of the most important factors in producing someone who can actually singinstead of someone who just takes lessons, and so we provide two opportunities a year to be in a recital or concert. We also put bands together with current students and people who don't take courses with us, with a coach to mentor and lead, in country and western, jazz, metal, classic and modern rock, R&B (rhythm and blues), praise & worship, and bluesstyles. Dedicated students of all styles may also be eligible for our performance clubs, in which students perform for their fellow learners with a master musician to critique, advise, and mentor on improving abilities. We also encourage all our musicians to participate in any musical competitions, concerts, contests, festivals, improvisations, master classes, and performances we can find – BUT we never force anyone to perform. Performing is great to improve your skill level, but we encourage you to do it, not demand you do it.


Our goal for vocalists is to allow students to sing by ear and also by note, and for them to be able to improvise if they want to (make stuff up); to be able to read music, or just work on songs from a CD or singspontaneously with another musician just by listening. This is a well-rounded singer. A school of music should enable singers to be the soloist or be an asset to their choir, or to just sing and playat the same time – but at our "academy" we base everything on what you want to do and how to best get you there. Therefore, the technique exercises singers do in our courses fit the kind of music they like and the way(s) they want to perform as a vocalist.


Music theory (brain work) is one of the most misunderstood and undervalued short cuts in the world of learning. Usually educators ignore it entirely, treat it as a necessary nuisance, or act like it's the entire purpose of music. Basically it's one of the three easy tools you can use to make your kind of music as quickly as possible (the other two tools are your ear [ear-training] and your fingers [technique]. And this isn't just for beginning vocalists but intermediate, advanced, and professionals as well.


Though slow starting at first, in a few months students with an understanding of music theory will begin to surpass their peers and continue to progress more and more over students who don't actually comprehend what they're doing - and oddly enough many classical singers don't really know what they're singing, they're just reproducing what they see on the page. Knowledge actually makes even performanceby ear or improvisingeasy, explaining what to do and what to listen for. The parts of theory we commonly work on in lessons are ear-training, sight-reading,rhythm counting, and music knowledge. Reading music is just the foundation; we're talking about hearing altered tones in difficult pieces, or being able to use major, pentatonic, and blues scales to sing in all keys and modes, etc – that is, taking a little info and making it go a long way, for classical singing, show tunes, as well as pop and rock pieces.

To the student who says "teach me to sing",we would say this is the best school of music in the Metroplex. Our educators have made your success and enjoyment their goal. We are trying to cross the attitude of a music conservatory or voice academy, even a university, with singing with your buds, helping your choir, or just singing by earin your room – getting better and having fun. Coming to lessons, improvisingat home, impressing yourself and your friends, winning American Idol, attending cool workshops and music seminars, learning great songs, getting a 1 at State - we want to produce students who learn and enjoy, all across Texas.
