    My first post!
    I play a bit of acoustic guitar and enjoy strumming a few tunes but I'd like to be able to sing better. Has anyone taken any vocal lessons in Belfast?

    I'm just a bit of a bedroom player but was wondering if vocal lessons can make a big difference, and is there many places in Belfast that offer vocal coaching?

    Thanks a lot.

    What could I expect from the first lesson or two?

    And, is R. Austin located in Belfast for private lessons? I'd feel a bit of a plonker in a 'class' I think.

    Yes, she's based in Belfast and does both individual and group lessons. I've asked her to check this post so hopefully she will be in touch...

    I take Vocal lessons (not in Belfast ) but I can highly recommend them. I have improved noticeably in a short space of time, and if you have a good teacher ( R.Austin seems to be popular on here) then you too should notice it quite early. The first few lessons I would expect you'd learn basic techniques which will sound simple and are easy to grasp, but they work a treat. Good luck!
