Online singing lessons
All our teachers
offer Online singing lessons
All of the vocal coaches at Express Voice Studio offer online singing lessons as well as in person, meaning you no longer have to be in Montreal to work with our Artists. Take singing lessons online every week, once a month, or multiple times a week: our no-contract style music lessons are designed to give you the freedom to work at your own pace.
We truly believe our singing teachers (each of them a professional singer in their field) provide the best online singing lessons. How can we make such a statement? Well, not only can you take a-la-carte singing lessons with any teacher, but founder Jordanne Erichsen has created an online singing course designed to maximize the speed at which you improve, empower you to be able to identify what your unique problems are, and prevent you from strengthening the wrong muscles- possibly making your singing more painful and causing vocal damage.
So, its up to you: Are you looking for 3 month online singing course designed specifically for you, or are you interested in taking online voice lessons a-la-carte?
Sometimes students are worried that the teacher will be unable to help them with their vocal technique as efficiently when working online. This is not the case with vocal coach Jordanne Erichsen. These online singing lessons are structured to include live, one on one coaching with Jordanne in combination with pre-recorded guided videos to practice to. Jordanne’s teaching style is comprehensive, targeting your body, your vocal cords, and your understanding of what it means to sing with your voice. This program is appropriate for beginners and advanced singers due to its personalized nature.
Live Zoom Sessions
The problem with most online singing lessons is they do not incorporate any check-ins or assessments with a vocal coach listening to you. Every singer has totally different tensions and issues to work through, which means a generic course cannot work for every participant and in some cases can even make you a worse singer.
This is why the 90 day course includes three 1 hour sessions live with Jordanne Erichsen over zoom. During each online singing lesson, Jordanne will re-evaluate and assess what exercises are needed for your voice; Based on this knowledge, she will create a series of Alexander Technique and vocal exercise videos for you to follow over the month. Your session will also include her walking you through what to focus on in each vocal exercise and what sensations you should be feeling to ensure you perform them correctly.
Your program will incorporate Alexander Technique video tutorials designed to re-coordinate your body’s habitual way of making sound: Think exchanging jaw tension for a stronger connection with your back. This is what we use Alexander Technique for. It is unfortunately not enough to simply tell your body: “don’t tighten my throat.” Because your body has a habitual understanding of how to make sound, any demand for it not to do what it knows how to do results in more tension. The only way to undo tension and develop a new coordination at the same time is through Alexander Technique.
Video tutorials will also include personalized vocal exercises based on Jordanne Erichsen’s studies with top New York City Vocal Coach Dr. Michael Warren.
These advanced techniques take you beyond making repetitive sound which builds on your tensions and actually connects you to your core sound. This is how we build power in your voice, unlock more of your vocal range, and maintain healthy vocal cords.

Why online singing lessons?
Are you a recording artist looking to clean up your singing skills or deal with some vocal fatigue or pain?
Often a professional singer will not have the same needs as beginner singers and so the structure will differ from other online singing lessons. All the sessions in our online singing classes will be geared towards maintaining the uniqueness of your sound and artistry while correcting any issues which may cause vocal injury. Often these sessions will incorporate having you practice songs from your album to target difficult passages and evaluate them for vocal health.
While online singing courses are geared towards building a voice, a professional singer is often looking to refine and protect. Over time, our goal is to expand your vocal range, find the correct use of head voice and chest voice, and provide you with vocal training that enables you to take care of your own voice: These singing lessons are not intended to go on weekly forever.
Vocal coaching for advanced singers is about self-empowerment and awareness. Understand your voice, your vocal technique. and apply it to your own music. The best vocal training teaches you how to feel out your voice day to day and understand what you need to do to get your singing voice show ready. Then, your vocal coach becomes someone you check in with your experiment with: You don’t need to learn how to sing, you need to learn how to read your voice and be performance ready at any time.
In our opinion, online singing lessons are not worth your money if they do not involve one-on-one lessons with a singing teacher. There is too much room for error with singing lessons online composed entirely of generic pre-recorded material. Many of us at Express Voice Studio have experienced first hand how working with the wrong teacher can take your singing voice backwards: you strengthen bad habits, your throat feels fatigued, you become frustrated and risk damaging your vocal cords… even needing vocal surgery on nodes in extreme cases.
However, online singing lessons with a real vocal coach listening to you and providing personalized feedback and programming is certainly beneficial.
