It’s not unusual for my voice students to become interested in learning to play an instrument, especially the guitar or ukulele. Why not? If you can sing and play then you can take your “backup band” wherever you go!
Learning to sing is a great challenge for many but learning to add to that an instrument is a whole new experience. It takes some time to learn the coordinations of right hand and left hand and to add singing to that.
I’m so very proud of my students that pursue playing and singing. They work hard and are consistent with their lessons and for that reason they progress and become not only great singers but great musicians too and as a result they gain a greater appreciation for music as a whole and a passion for music that lasts a lifetime.
I encourage and teach sight singing/reading, guitar and ukulele chords, tablature and music theory basics especially for those students who are considering music as a profession.
