Voice Lessons

We’ve all got a voice, some of us just haven’t figured out how to harness it yet. Stages’ offers some of the best voice lessons in Baltimore with first-class voice instructors. They teach students how to harness the instrument we’re all born with – the voice – and gain confidence as they refine their ability. From finding the right vocal register to learning how to properly breathe while singing, Stages offers comprehensive voice lessons, complete with recording technology in the lesson room and numerous performance opportunities. It all goes back to our motto – Learn. Perform. Record.

Beginner Lessons

Aspiring singers can learn everything they need to know from Stages instructors to get their voice truly singing. Through weekly lessons at our facility just outside of Baltimore, students as young as age 7 can start formal vocal lessons, and begin learning about timbre, vocal registers, rhythm, breath and posture, and how to create their own vocal melodies.

Intermediate and Advanced Lessons

Singers looking to take their skills to the next level will learn about hitting high notes and belting, write and record original songs, and learn more advanced techniques to control and fully harness the power of their voice. But it’s not all classroom learning – students will perform at recitals, and have the opportunity to sing in a band as part of one of our many group programs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do students need to have prior vocal experience?

No prior knowledge is necessary! While some experience with singing may give students a head start, our instructors are ready and able to start students from scratch and teach them all the basic knowledge they need to get started singing.

What is the best age to start singing?

Any age is a great age to start learning how to sing, but we recommend formal lessons for students age 7 and older. Studies have shown that taking music lessons can increase children’s academic performance and critical thinking. And you’re never too old to start – learning how to sing is a great way to keep the brain sharp. For students as young as age 4, we offer Mini Music Makers, one-on-one lessons in which students get to have fun experimenting with drums, piano, ukulele and voice while learning about basic music concepts.
