Private lessons at Voxbox Camden studios
Private lessons are of 30 mins or 60 minutes duration which includes 5 minutes change-over. To get the most from your lesson, we recommend that you arrive a few minutes before your alloted time. We ask that you pay for your first lesson in advance, which you may do online or with Voxbox reception. All subsequent lessons can be paid with your teacher on the day.
Our 4 teaching suites are fully equipped with mics and monitors and a diverse list of backing tracks with lyrics for you to choose from, or alternatively you may bring your own to sing along to. We also advise that you bring some kind of recording device, so that you can record your lesson to assist your practice at home.
Please Note: If you need to cancel a booked lesson, you must give 24 hours notice to avoid being charged.
Courses, Events and Workshops
There's no way we can beat public-access singing courses on price, so we make sure we beat them on quality and variety.
The emphasis in all of our courses in on effective development of skills and knowledge, in an atmosphere of love of music and ejoyment of singing.
We absolutely recommend that every beginner should start their training on the beginners Part A course. This will give you a great intro to all aspects of singing under the guidance of a very experienced senior teacher. It's fun, social, and helps you find the joy in singing. After Part A, choose either private lessons or go on to Part B if you enjoy the group learning.
Once your vocal development is under way, you can choose from a wide range of other, more specific courses and workshops, as well as various performance opportunities.
Rehearsal and Studio Hire
We have 5 studio spaces available at our Camden studio complex. Each is designed for a specific function: Teaching, courses, individual practise, recording studio and a residential recording suite.
All of these studios are available for hire, subject to availability and some use restrictions. Most of the studios have a range of options and can be customised to your requirements for your booking.
Studio 1: Teaching studio for 1 to 1 music lessons.
Studio 2: Small practise and recording room.
Studio 3: Recording suite: Control room and large booth.
Studio 4: 20-seat course, teaching and seminar room.
Studio 5: Residential studio with artist accommodation.

Freevoice is our access programme providing free or low cost learning opportunities. Join the freevoice list and get the latest updates.
For about 6 months of every year we run a free weekly vocal warmup. Occasionally we also run workshops and masterclasses.
We run Freevoice because we want to make sure that everyone has access to singing tuition. It's also a great way for people to meet other singers and get to know each other.

Voxbox was established in 2002 by Lucy Phillips and Leon Berrange.
From a simple teaching partnership we grew rapidly into a school with 10 or more teachers. Eventually the school grew too top heavy with senior teachers and we went back to basics, bringing in a group of trainee teachers.
Once again we are growing but now are maintaining a balance in teacher pricing, providing lessons at all price levels.
In 2012 we re-developed the studios, reducing the number of teaching rooms and introducing two new for-hire studios, in order to present a more balanced offering to London singers.
Do you know someone who loves to sing? Or maybe someone who loves to try something new? A Voxbox Gift Voucher is a great gift idea.
You can give a gift of any value ... to cover just one private lesson, or enough for a whole series of lessons. Gift Vouchers are flexible: they can be used towards any teacher or course at Voxbox in Camden.
We can normally get the voucher off to you by return first-class post (subject to our working days) but if you are in a particular hurry, please call reception to make arrangements.
There is a selection of pictures to choose from, and you will receive a glossy '5x7 voucher personalised with your message.
How to choose a teacher
Choosing the right teacher will greatly improve your vocal development experience.
First you need to verify that the teacher has a technical background suitable to your needs. Good singers are not necessarily good teachers. Most contempoary teachers are qualified through proprietary methods such as SLS, Estill or, indeed, Voxbox. The teacher should hold a certification from one of these organisations. This means that they have a sound technical background and are trained as singing teachers.
Bear in mind that teaching singing is an extremely complex job, and it takes some years for a teacher to achieve a high level. The more experienced a teacher is, the more expensive, however you get the following benefits with increasing teacher experience:
Rapid and accurate diagnosis of vocal faults
Effective and efficient correction of faults
Integrated technical and artistic development at high level
Clear, precise and powerful explanations
The most cost effective vocal development.
On top of qualification, experience and price issues, it is most important that you have both a personal and musical rapport with your teacher. Read the biogs carefully, try to read between the lines and look for shared attitudes and tastes.
To help you find the right person, we have provided comprehensive information for each teacher, with details of their experience and musical influences - we hope this makes it easier for you to choose.
Lessons: How often and for how long?
You can take lessons once a week, fornightly or just occasionally. How quickly you make progress depends on many factors, not just how often or long your lessons are.
Some people enjoy taking lessons, some people just want to fix their voices as quickly and cost-effectively as possible: if singing is a hobby, you may like to come for the longer lessons, as hour lessons give you more time to actually work on songs.
For simply fixing and inproving your voice, half-hours once a week are better than an hour every second week. Also, half-hours with a more experienced teacher may be better than less frequent hours. Your needs may differ, and may change over time. Your teacher will advise you on the best study programme.
Your First Lesson
Browse & Book Now
In your first lesson, your teacher will have a conversation with you as to your vocal history i.e. if you have had any previous training, sung in a choir, with bands etc. to establish what you want from your voice. If you have any vocal issues, this is the time to spill the beans!
It doesn't matter whether you are a beginner or a professional, your teacher will assess your needs right away. They will usually ask you to sing up and down a scale, using different vowels to hear where you voice sits, general tone and texture. You will then start to work with your voice using the SLS techniques they think are appopriate. These exercises may seem strange at first, but perservere with them, as they are purposefully designed to build a solid foundation to your voice.
Once you have worked on a few vocal exercises your teacher will suggest a song, either one that you have brought with you or one from our list of backing tracks. You then apply the exercises that you learned in the first half of the lesson to your song.
Please bear in mind that every singer responds differently to vocal instruction. The singing voice is an advanced physical skill which depends largely on the singer's ability to work subtly and accurately with the muscles and elements of the vocal tract. How easily you will develop this ability depends on innumerable factors, but you can be sure that all Voxbox teachers are knowlegeable and experienced in facilitating this learning process.
