My 5 year old had a couple of one on one singing lessons booked in anticipation of upcoming choir auditions.
I knew that sometimes she sounded great, but just as often she sounded awful so I was trying to improve consistency because she does love to sing.
The tutor has decades of experience with children and adults and became excited by my daughter effortlessly singing in “high b flat”.
It meant absolutely nothing to me but the tutor described her as one of if not the most able young singers she’s ever taught. She was also good at other aspects of the lesson, following music and singing with the piano etc
Now we’re booked in for weekly singing lessons and, although I don’t doubt the sincerity of the tutor, I’m wondering if in the grand scheme of things if it’s really that remarkable?
Is this a rare talent that justifies the £15 per week nurturing?
Could it lead to a prominent professional career?
I’m not interested in fame and fortune for her, but a happy balance of financial security and joy. Thanks.
