Finding a quality voice teacher in our area is very hard. And the supposed "best" in our area seem to have their students sing nice, sweet soprano songs. A local college theatre director had told us not to take youngster to this person as she felt that our youngster had a bigger voice and should be directed to someone who works with broadway type songs. Any input on this? Should an eleven year old be made to sing soprano if it is more of a "bigger" voice.
We also were told that there are some voice teachers in New York/New Jersey lessons that can do periodic private lessons in the summer or that do summer workshops. Does anyone know about this? Any recommendations?
