Getting good with a guitar is about doing the right things many times over. You’ll do something you like many more times than something you don’t. That is why it’s important to learn the music you enjoy.
With our adult guitar lessons, every piece of music has something to teach. There is no “best music” to start learning with. The best music for us is the music you are passionate about and inspired to learn. In individual guitar lessons, we will grade the music you want to learn. This will ensure that the pieces you want to learn are not beyond your abilities. For this reason, the music you love is the best music to learn!
With music studios in Windsor, Ashgrove, Newstead and Browns Plains, we’re ideally placed to help you become the guitarist (or bassist) of your dreams! Our lessons take place between 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM. One-on-one lessons start at $40 per half-hour; a price we hope you agree is well worth the outcome!
At IMA our singing lessons in Brisbane will teach you what you need to learn to sing!
Whether you’re a complete beginner, tone death, or already an accomplished singer in a band, IMA can make you a better singer!
Your singing lessons will begin with you learning about your singing instrument; your voice. Your anatomy, stance, and breathing all have an effect. We will teach you an understanding of singing health and how to look after your voice.
We will teach you special vocal exercises to help you to sing louder or higher. These exercises will help you to become familiar with your voice and to be sensitive to your singing instrument. Once you have acquired these skills, you will be amazed at how your voice develops!
During your introductory singing lesson, be sure to let your mentor know about where you sing (in a band or with friends) and where you’d like to take your voice. We’d also like to address any trouble you identify with your voice. If you can bring examples of your music or the music that you would like to sing, that would be most helpful in our journey to reach your goals!
Do you want to sing professionally? Do you want to be the best singer you can possible become? If your answer is "YES" then you've come to the right website.
Great singers aren't born. They are made. At IMA, we make them all the time! As long as you can make the daily commitment of practising and exercising your voice. Your IMA mentor can help you to unlock the potential of your voice.
Whatever style of singing that you would like to find success in, the fundamental technique is the same. Your singing lesson will cover the exercises and techniques needed to discover your natural voice. We will improve your pitch, range, and resonance. Once you are confident with your natural voice, you will be ready to make the stylistic changes that are appropriate for the vocal music that you write. Whether you want to learn to sing Rock, learn to sing Pop, learn to sing Jazz or R&B, or maybe learn to sing for musical theatre or even heavy metal, you can learn to project in the most beautiful way.
In our lessons, you will explore the repertoire appropriate for your vocal style of singing. At IMA, you can also experience performance opportunities to learn to use your voice on stage.
Becoming a professional singer is a lifestyle choice. It requires great dedication and time, but you can do it and we can help you.
During your introductory singing lesson, be sure to let your mentor know if you have professional singing aspirations. Your mentor will help you understand what you need to do and what to expect as you progress in your singing lessons.
You will be assigned your singing mentor by Seamus Kirkpatrick, the head of our vocal department at IMA. He is an excellent singer who can rip out a classic rock or pop tune. He can sing pretty any song and has a broad singing repertoire. He is a fan of Solomon Burke, Bon Scott, Marvin Gaye, Anthony Warlow, Bruce Dickinson, Bobby McFerrin, Tony Curtis, Mike Patton, Tom Waits, Maynard James Keenan… and the list goes on.
IMA has hand-picked local singers to assist Seamus in imparting sound singing lessons across Brisbane. Our mentors undergo constant training to develop and refine their singing mentoring skills.
You can appreciate Seamus' singing in the videos located around the IMA site and on our YouTube Channel.
