Solutions
Each section focuses on one of my 5 vocal solutions that I believe yields the highest and best results in creating beautiful sounds.

…the attitude and thought process that a singer has before singing their first note.

This point is all about making sure that you have good breath support before you begin singing.

When we speak of vibration, we are talking about the type and quality of sounds that we make when we begin to sing.

…the way we create and enhance our vocal sound so that it can be heard clearly by the listener.

Questions & Answers

Q. Why do people take voice lessons?

A. Learning to use your voice is a very important step in fulfilling your desire to express yourself more completely. Whether you want to sing your favorite songs in the shower or become world famous singer, learning to improve and eventually master your instrument is very
important. Though I personally believe that everyone has the ability to sing, there is indeed an incorrect way to sing that could lead to vocal problems and injury to your vocal cords in the long run. To avoid such problems and become the best singer you can be, it is a good idea to seek voice lessons from a professional vocal instructor!

Q. What is the difference between “voice lessons” and “singing lessons"?

A. They both essentially have the same meaning on the surface but in actual practice, a “voice lesson” focuses on your vocal technique while a “singing lesson” tends focus on improving a song’s performance. Furthermore, vocal lessons tend to improve a singer’s breathing and warmup techniques whereby a “singing lesson” would aim to improve the overall performance and delivery of a song. Ultimately, it is up to the instructor to improve the student’s overall confidence and vocal ability whether the student came for a “voice”, or “singing” lesson!

Q. What should I look for in a good vocal instructor/coach?

A. Your selected instructor/coach should first be able to meet you where you are vocally no matter how novice or advanced you are. I say this because I have had countless vocal instructors tell me, “You don’t need voice lessons…” Being met with this opposition time and again has led me to not only become a teacher myself, but a teacher to less experienced aspiring singers. Teaching a person thirsting for knowledge is quite invigorating, and is like a reverse voice lesson in practice because students expect their instructors to fix their personal vocal issues quickly. Even if it feels like an exchange of information during the lesson and less like a teacher/student experience, a “good” vocal instructor/coach should always be able to share their experience with an aspiring singer whether they be novice, or professional!

Q. Should I take voice lessons if I wasn’t born with the talent to sing?

A. Of course! If indeed you feel that way about yourself then you should rest assured that voice lessons are for you. My first vocal teacher Sunny Wilkinson told me that she felt she wasn’t a “born singer.” However, that did not stop her from seeking the information she wanted and going on to be a studio singer for the NBC television network in Los Angeles. It was her thirst for knowledge and hard work that allowed her to make singing her profession, and eventually my professor at Michigan State University. If you have the desire to sing and perform, you owe it to yourself to get up and do your best. If we are supposed to dance like no one is watching, then you should sing like no one is listening… then get voice lessons so you’d eventually be okay with people listening.

"Thanks for checking up on me and for the breathing tips 😉 It really worked! A friend of mine thought when I was singing Inseparable, that it was a recording! LOL!! I received a lot of compliments and the bride was happy!"
Andrea Radden-Hunter
"Hi Ashton, I wanted to let you know that it all worked out back in November. I sung the Ave Maria and it went very well - everybody was impressed, at least they said so! Thank you very much for your help - it definitely helped me get on top of those high notes."
Janneke Wolken
"Ashton's class is fun, relaxed and friendly. If you're shy and worried about learning songs among strangers, you will be surprised how much fun you will have in this class. Duration feels short but you will not feel like wasting time at all. I learned some simple but very useful things.. because they're so simple it's easy to remember that I can always use them by myself in the future."
Kaori Hilton
"You may be surprised to hear that I have been performing and auditioning for various things. Music has helped me so much in my life and I am so grateful that I had you as my first teacher. It feels so good to finally feel like everything I've been working towards is starting to slowly come to fruitation. Thanks for believing in me when I couldn't believe in myself!"

  • Only focus on the execution of the sound you are attempting to sing. Singing is a physical activity so at times the right notes will feel and sound nasally, but that is only because the NEXT step is opening and beautifying that new sound of yours. #music #educator #iteachsinging #vocal #lessons #amplification #breathing #exercise #singing #teacher #studio #professional #singer #student #vocalcoach #instructor #vocalteacher #music #lesson #tutorial #detroit #pedagogy #tokyo #loa #love
  • As a vocal ensemble it is very important to practice group intonation simultaneously with staggered breathing. The need for it while singing actual pieces of music is paramount. #warmup #practice #vocal #ensemble #womens #chorus #kanagawa #jubilee #chorale #yokohama #solfeggio #rehearsal #instagram @rivichan
  • That time @tsuggs89 and I had service at the Louis Vuitton store in Shinjuku. 🙌🏽 Peace to my student who came in and bought a wallet before sitting down and taking this pic of me.🙇🏽‍♂️ #singer #vocalist #performer #musician #live #professional #entertainer #luxury #vocals #louisvuitton #shinjuku #tokyo #summer #style #instagram #love #loa #blessed
  • Mask Activation: One quick way to make sure that your voice achieves full residence is to close your mouth completely so that you can feel the same sensation in your face that should also be present when you sing lyrics. Strengthening your ability to sing "forward" towards your mask will allow you to sing with more dynamics and control. #singing #warmup #exercise #vocal #training #beginner #lesson #coach #piano #voice #teacher #musician #training #student #studio #session
