I thought this would be the appropriate subject to post this...

I am looking to become a CERTIFIED singing teacher. I want to be able to apply to places and or work from home.
I need to learn how to read music though. I have no idea who to contact about all of this... Please let me know if you have any info. as to how to get started.

My DD has had a vocal teacher for several years and has been studying theory and piano with her as well. It takes a long time to learn theory, and you have to have a certain grade of theory in order to apply to university level vocal/music study. I believ the minimum piano you need for music at most univ. Is grade 5 piano...may be the same for theory. I would suggest a QUALIFIED vocal / music instructor (university trained ) if this is the career path you are seeking. Can be someone who works out of their home, but needs to have a good background in theory (reading/writing) music, piano and vocal instruction.

It's the path my daughter is taking, she is 15 and has been working hard at it for a many years all ready! All the best of luck to you in this .....

It includes many years of schooling on music theory. I come from a family of musicians and it is a complex art. Singing is still using an instrument and there is much education to be had on using that instrument. A person can't pass along that knowledge if they aren't first educated. A good friend of mine is a singing instructor, but she had years and years of vocal coaching, then went through a 4 year program at a university to get her degree in music. It is just so complex.

I don't have any advice on what you would need to become a singing instructor but I just wanted to say that while I think your voice is very good,you should really work on your presentation. I am not saying that to be mean, but I found the shaking of the camera, the use of the webcam(which lags) to be very distracting, and for me, I think that took away from your singing. Have you tried putting yourself out there in terms of singing at public places to gain some exposure? That may be a start. Good Luck!
