Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera, that’s a name we haven’t heard in a while.

Aguilera’s Dirty days may seem an age away but she’s still in possession of all those distinctive vocal qualities that were so brilliantly showcased on her 2002 album Stripped.

The hitmaker can reach high notes some humans can’t hear (probably) and her emotion-loaded singing voice, with all those achey-breaky notes and passionate growls is the bomb.

And now she wants to share her skills with you. A recent stint as a judge on the US version of The Voice seems to have ignited her mentor flame. Aguilera is now turning teacher for online education platform masterclass.com, offering singing lessons at $90 a pop.

What will you get for your money? According to the class blurb:

‘Christina teaches you how to expand your range, find your voice, and master the techniques that have earned her 6 Grammy Awards. You'll learn warm-up exercises, breath control, vibrato, her signature growls, and hear Christina break down her biggest hits.’

We want in. And despite Aquilera’s comments from the workshop’s teaser trailer on what it takes to succeed fill us with confidence:

‘Technique is only a quarter of it – passion and drive is like 100% of it’

We’re hearing that what we may lack in talent we can make up for in effort. Ideal.

Aguilera went on to say:

‘Every student can learn from this course how to better trust yourself, what to look out for, what to listen to, when to project, when to be silent.’

Basically, all are bases covered. And it sounds like students will be equipped with life advice to live by as well as shiny new singing skills.

‘I’m excited MasterClass has given me the opportunity to truly share all I have learned about my craft with the world. Coaching in this capacity not only gives me a chance to connect with my fans but lets me explore one of my true passions’ Aguilera said in a statement.

And if you think lessons in singing might be wasted on you (even if you do try really hard) Masterclass.com has enlisted a whole bunch of other celebrities keen to share their insider tips.

You can learn to act with Kevin Spacey or Dustin Hoffman. Usher is on hand to impart all that he’s discovered about the art of performance. Annie Liebovitz shares secrets to taking remarkable photograps and Serena Williams can teach you to play tennis like a pro.

A more coomplished you is just a click away...
