Book lessons with professional singing teacher Linda Lockwood
Hello! I'm Linda Lockwood, a professional singing teacher based in Palmdale. I offer singing lessons to students of all ages and abilities.
I have many years experience in teaching, performance and writing alongside a masters degree in music performance and composition.
My singing lessons are available to anyone, regardless of your singing ability or experience. I teach all age groups too including youngsters from age 3 and up.
I have grown up with and enjoy all types of music, so I will be able to teach you to sing to songs you love from any genre.
I teach the majority of my lessons from my home teaching space, but am also happy to offer mobile teaching to students.
Professional singing lessons catered to each individual with highly-qualified teacher Linda Lockwood
Half-hour lesson slots are available to everyone but are ideal for beginners or youngsters who may find learning to sing more manageable in bite-sized amounts.
One-hour lessons are the best way to see quick progress in your singing ability as they provide plenty of time for both tuition and supervised practise.
I have been involved in music all my life, having a passion for not only playing but also music writing from a young age: once even finishing as runner-up in a national songwriting competition! I grew up learning to play music on various instruments and went on to study music, performance and composition at university, graduating with both a bachelor and masters degree.
I have always loved all genres of music, whether it be jazz, rock, metal or more through playing, performing and writing. I want you to enjoy your lessons as much as I did when I was younger, and part of this is letting you learn singing songs you love, but it is also important that I teach you the many different singing techniques that other genres offer too!
Singers are unique in music because each individual has a different sound. As students of any discipline, we have our own individual needs too. This is why I take the time to study the needs of each of my singers to identify how they best learn and what they enjoy.
My ultimate goal as your teacher is to see you find a passion for singing and to achieve whatever goals you set yourself in music. This may be as simple as learning to sing with confidence or it could be to perfect your technique to a performance standard, but whatever your ambitions, I am excited to play a part in your journey.
I take the majority of my lessons from my home teaching space in Palmdale, CA, 93550, but am more than happy to offer mobile teaching in the area if you feel more comfortable learning from home or a place that suits you.
My full address will be provided on your first lesson booking.
