In order to make singing as easy as speaking and to make your voice sound natural, expressive and powerful, without sounding artificial, the best thing to do is to work in a personalized way with your vocal coach, because in the same way that every voice is different, so will the work to keep it balanced and healthy.
The job of a professional vocal coach is based on the knowledge that the voice is an instrument which is physical, acoustic and mechanical. So, in the same way that a musician should get to know his musical instrument, you, as a singer, must have a solid foundation on which to build your own style, besides being able to apply what you learned to sing in any style you want.
This is possible thanks to vocal coaching because just like a well-trained athlete has the ability to play different sports, a singer who posesses a good vocal technique and expression has the potential to sing competently in any musical style.

What singing style does a voice coach teach?
The vocal coach does not teach singers how to sing in a certain style, but to master the basics based on muscle "memory" so you can identify which parts of your own body, when worked with, produce better sound and amplification. With repetition you improve your self awareness and you gain control of your voice, besides training it for resilience and better results.

The more you practice what you have learned, the better you'll get to sing and this will contribute to keep and increase your motivation.
How long are sessions of vocal coaching?
A session lasting between 45 and 60 minutes is the practice time that most singers consider appropriate, since focused and intense work is always more effective than longer sessions in which continuous distractions can appear.
What if I want to sing in a group, do I need a different training?
A singer may have a great voice but that does not imply they can get good results singing in a group. There is a big difference between a group of people singing at the same time and in the same place, and a group of singers who know how to blend their voices and interact with each other. Vocal training for groups goes beyond what is needed for an individual voice and focuses on training vocal blend, active listening habits, volume balance and other skills needed to perform as a team.
If I am not a singer, will I get to sing well?
Almost everyone can sing if they know technique, although a natural talent is needed; an unavoidable genetic part and physical traits to guarantee, for example, that there are no injuries on the vocal folds or the inner ear that may impair this capacity. However, if your ear works properly, with the right training you can learn how to sing.
