Some teachers advertise themselves as teaching "classic singing" and others as "pop singing". My child is currently learning "pop" but I have discovered a highly experienced "classic" teacher that is also geographically placed much more conveniently. We are not far with learning yet and we have no very obvious preference, so I am thinking about the possible switching.
Are "pop" and "classic" studies significantly different or is some part of the obtained knowledge transferable? How difficult is to switch between these two ways of singing later?
For instance, if to learn singing the Beatles "Let It Be" from the book I have - there is a melody line written on the scales (there are also piano chords as well). Is this significantly different from singing something more classical?
