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 or Toronto 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?
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.

Montreal-based singer-songwriter &/or melodic rapper, Drew, has been pursuing his career as an independent musician for over two years, & has since seen relatively quick growth and success within the music industry. Alongside three in-house producers, together these 4 combine forces as jointly-known NSL (Never Stop Laughing) Collective.
Having graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing & Business Studies, Drew’s knowledge acquired in his educational background has benefited his pursuit as a musician. In addition, with work experience in Digital Marketing & Advertising, his understanding and expertise of branding, as well as consumer behaviour, allowed the collective to quickly build & grow a highly engaged community on various social platforms.
Drew is solely managed, writes his own lyrics, does his own vocal recording, mixing, mastering, as well as all other other business/marketing efforts required to be a successful independent artist. For this reason, he has acquired & mastered many skills within the overarching theme of being a musician. Drew is constantly learning & testing new strategies & techniques to improve his marketing efforts and ultimately continue growing as a musician. He believes his business-knowledge and self-acquired skill sets are key contributors to NSL’s relatively quick success in this industry.
The Musician’s Business
Music creation is undoubtedly an artistic and therapeutic practice. That being said, in order to ensure a successful career as an independent artist, the importance of the “business side of music” can simply not be ignored or disregarded. More specifically, the aspects of marketing and branding are crucial contributors towards your success as a musician. These components can “make or break” your career in the music industry.
This “side” of the industry can be intimidating and “foreign” to some artists.
With some assistance and coaching in these departments, artists can see a complete transformation, and drastic improvements in regards to their music’s performance (over time, of course).
Having first-hand experience in music marketing and an educational background in business studies, my skill sets may help independent artists properly position themselves within this comptetitive industry.

This course more specifically offers assistance in regards to overcoming writer’s block, avoiding creative burnout, as well as finding a proper balance between your music career and personal life. It also highlights the importance of lyricism and song-structure creation. Consider this an “all-around” course that offers assistance in regards to all that falls into the “creative” , “psychological”, as well as “technical” sides of music creation.

Lessons are personalized and tailored to each student’s needs and abilities. Lessons will include warm-ups and exercises for the first half, and focusing on a song of your choice for the second half. I will provide tips and pointers to help you improve in any area that needs improvement, focusing mostly on healthy and sustainable vocal technique, as well as musicality and style. I will also provide a folder of piano recordings and examples of the exercises we go through during our lessons. The goal is to feel more comfortable and confident using your beautiful singing voice in a healthy way with good technique, and to sing with more joy and less fear. Singing is important for so many reasons, and I would love to help bring your passion for singing and for music to life in a fun and healthy way.
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.
