Taking voice lessons can improve a student’s singing no matter what level of training they are at. For Alpharetta area students, North Fulton School of Music is a great place to find a voice teacher or vocal coach for voice lessons. Whether beginner or advanced, age 5 or 80, we have the teachers to support your music education. Our teachers range from teaching contemporary, pop, and r&b music to more technically demanding classical and jazz. Students taking voice lessons will also be interested in programs like this one, Kim Gordon’s Jazz Vocal Workshop and Masterclass.

Even further than the actual voice lesson, we provide our students with outlets to perform. Performance opportunities range from more traditional and formal events such as student recitals to more informal events such as our open mics and other community events. We have also helped many students get college scholarships, record deals, and some have put out full feature EPs and albums. All of the greats have taken voice lessons at some point or another. Even famous celebrities such as Usher and Justin Beiber have had voice lessons with a vocal coach in the Atlanta and Alpharetta areas. Beyond the voice lessons and performance opportunities, we also provide our students with various vocal masterclasses that help students identify problem areas and learn more about the technical side of singing.
