Vocal Lessons

In-home and online instruction for kids and adults in Fort Mill, SC and surrounding areas

About our Vocal Lessons for Kids

We believe learning to sing should be enjoyable and rewarding! We team up with our students' families to:

  • Encourage regular practice to instill the necessary discipline and habits to help each student excel in their learning.

  • Read and play music as well as to create their own compositions.

  • Cultivate a passion for music and an excitement to learn!

Beginning Lessons for Kids

We make learning to sing fun from the very first lesson!

  • Beginner vocal lessons always include foundational teaching in the basics: breathing, tone, pitch, rhythm etc.

  • For our younger ones, we incorporate fun vocal and music theory games to keep interest and enthusiasm high. Sometimes they have so much fun they don't even realize they are learning important vocal techniques.

  • All beginner vocalists spend time learning to sight read music and develop their own unique sound.

  • Even our very youngest students participate in recitals to learn to perform in front of others. The praise and acknowledgement of their achievements in group performances help young singers to improve and grow.

Intermediate Lessons for Kids

Once a vocal student has a thorough foundation in the basics of singing:

  • Intermediate vocal lessons for kids may begin.

  • Voice students are provided with an education of healthy singing concepts through all major musical genres.

  • Lessons will continue to build on the concepts of posture, breathe, tone, and music theory.

  • More advanced subjects such as: diction, vocal anatomy, and vocal registers will be introduced.

  • All vocalists will have a general understanding of how their bodies create sound and how to change that sound stylistically.

  • Students will gain confidence in their abilities to create music of their own.

Advanced Lessons for Kids

Advanced vocal lessons for kids offer:

  • A thorough study of the voice, how it works, and what it can do. By building on already learned basic music theory, we continue to master complex theory concepts and musicianship.

  • An advanced student will learn to tell stories through a variety of musical genres, including: classical, pop, jazz, soul, musical theater, and rock.

  • Healthy singing habits and care of the voice are top priorities for all students and teachers at Creative Melodies. Our teachers can help you prep for an audition or performance, learn a new type of style, or continue your vocal knowledge so you can enjoy your voice as much as possible!

We teach adults too!

You're never too old to learn to sing! Whether you are a seasoned performer or learning to sing for the very first time, Creative Melodies has the perfect instructor. Our approach to teaching voice to adults is a little different, as we tailor our vocal lessons to the goals and interests of the adult and what they would like to accomplish in their lessons in a much more specific way. While working on music from genres the student finds enjoyable, our teachers address vocal technique, vocal health, expression, musicality and style. Our in-home lessons can create a comfortable learning environment to help you:

  • Feel comfortable auditioning for shows, singing in a church choir, performing solo acts, and singing for your own enjoyment!

  • Learn to read sheet music to accompany your vocal training

  • Unleash your creativity with your own vocal arrangements

Beginning Lessons for Adults

Learning to sing has never been more fun!

  • Beginner vocal lessons for adults are great for students over the age of 18 that have very little musical experience, but love to sing!

  • We start at the very beginning, working on pitch, rhythm, and music theory basics.

  • Our instructors teach and reinforce great vocal technique and health using the kind of music you are interested in.

  • You will be free to work at your own pace toward your musical goals and aspirations.

  • We can't wait to begin working with you!

Intermediate Lessons for Adults

Once a vocal student has a thorough foundation in the basics of singing:

  • Intermediate adult vocal students have either recently mastered beginning techniques, or are seasoned singers returning from a hiatus.

  • Our teachers address vocal technique, vocal health, expression, musicality, and style.

  • You will be able not only to sing in the styles you most enjoy, but also to develop new styles of singing.  

  • Vocal lessons help adult students feel comfortable auditioning for shows, singing in a church choir, performing solo acts, and singing for their own enjoyment! 

Advanced Lessons for Adults

Advanced vocal lessons for adults are perfect for singers who have studied music intensely in the past and want to continue to grow as musicians:

  • Every lesson is catered to each individual student.

  • Whether preparing for an upcoming performance or audition, or just wanting to get your singing chops back in shape, we have a teacher for you! A Creative Melodies instructor will work with advanced students toward their personal goals while still incorporating strong, healthy vocal technique, and musicality.

From our students:

“The kids are truly enjoying your lessons. I find Ayush going to the piano sometimes 2 or 3 times on the weekend (on his own!). We love having music in own house and I love that you are nurturing that in my kids.”

  • Do you offer piano lessons online?
    Yes, we do! We use modern video conferencing software to connect with students online. We find that the best candidates for a successful online music lesson experience are adults, self-motivated teenagers, and passionate children who really want to learn. A basic understanding of how to play piano can help overcome the initial learning curve best addressed in an in-person setting, but is not necessary in order to begin online lessons. Contact us to see if you're a good fit for online music lessons.
  • What ages do you teach?
    We teach adults of any age and children as young as three years old.
  • What skill levels do you teach?
    Our piano lessons range from no playing experience at all to beginner to intermediate to advanced. We match each student to the instructor best suited to their skill level and goals.
  • What piano instruction curriculum do you teach?
    The short answer is that we customize the curriculum for each student according to their experience level, interests, and goals. Our instructors don't just walk you through the lessons in a book...we use a variety of tools including flash cards, sheet music, and especially with children we often get them out of their seat to play games to help them learn music theory.
  • What happens if I miss a lesson?
    We understand that emergencies happen, as do vacations and holidays. Communication is key to making sure that an instructor doesn't arrive at your residence when you aren't able to keep a lesson (and vice versa if an instructor is sick or has an emergency). You can read a summary of our student policies to find out how to handle reschedulings and make-up lessons, and your Lesson Agreement will detail contact information and information as well.
  • How often do you conduct piano recitals?
    Recitals represent important milestones in a student's education, and our instructors enjoy the opportunity to celebrate our students' accomplishments! Creative Melodies typically hosts a total of around 5 recitals each year combining smaller informal recitals in student family homes or coffee shops as well as formal recitals. Be sure to check out our Recital Gallery page for a glimpse at our recent recitals!
