I recommend talking to a few teachers before you decide on one.

It is very important you feel a good and comfortable chemistry with the teacher you choose.

You want to find someone who will help you discover your strengths and weakness as a vocalist and bring power, strength and skill to both. It is also important for the teacher to be able to be versatile in helping you to build your repertoire and to give you guidance in a musical direction if needed.
