For young singers and their parents, it can be very confusing between vocal lessons and vocal coaching. A vocal teacher focuses on technique that is appropriate for the age level and maturity of the student where a vocal coach focuses on the presentation and delivery of the song. Theater Steps instructors are trained in both giving each student a collaborative balance of breath control, vowel placement, and tone execution with the song delivery for every age level.

This early music development will prepare students for note reading in any instrument.
