PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all lessons will be carried out online. If you find yourself with time to spare at present, see below to hear Jordan's thoughts on what is so special about learning to sing.
Jordan offers private singing lessons in the Manchester and Cheshire areas. This is what he has to say about how his lessons work and why singing lessons are so important for anyone who wants to develop their voice:
Why study singing? It isn't like tossing a pizza or learning Dutch. There is no special knack to putting one note after another and making a song.
As a professional performer and student of Music, finding my voice has opened up a world of possibilities, a world that I love to share. Firstly, that expression gives us a clue. 'Finding' your voice, developing and nurturing it, means a couple of things. Partly, it is physical. Singing is a very physical pursuit, a vocal sound is supported by the whole body. The vocal chords, however, are the smallest muscles in the body. Developing them is like gym for the voice. A strong and healthy vocal technique can be achieved through regular structured practise and exercise.
Finding your voice is about more than the 'technique' of singing though. Engaging with music and lyrics gives us a way to explore poetry, through beautiful words. It gives us a way to explore art , from the plays and paintings that inspire pieces to creating in innovative practical ways. Music gives us a way to explore ourselves and others, our actions and motivations, in a way that can sometimes transcend the things we can say or explain. What's more, once we have thought, and felt, our way into music, singing gives us the tools we need to stand up tall in front of an audience, or even just by ourselves, and be confident that we have something important to say.
