The development trend of globalization has made the diversification of world economy and culture the mainstream of the development of the current era. In the context of globalization, the cultures of different countries and nationalities have developed together in mutual integration. As an important part of Chinese culture, the Chinese national vocal art will also follow the development trend of world cultural trends. Obtaining its own heritage and development under a diverse background. In terms of methods, the teaching concept of vocal education is firstly put forward, and the vocal education should be strengthened from the virtues and vocal learning channels. Improve the teaching content of vocal education, from the increase of local vocal culture courses and regular to folk folk collecting practice. The school vocal education is optimized from the aspects of enriching the original teaching form, teaching step by step and oral teaching. And in the teaching of vocal music to strengthen the relationship between traditional techniques and culture, such as absorbing the essence of opera aria, the Western is used for the Chinese, the ancient is used today. From the aspect of experiment, the experiment objects are students and teachers from multi-city schools. The data were collected and sorted by questionnaire survey. This article discusses the four aspects of the students 'class situation, the teachers' social welfare payment status, the development status of the domestic online education industry, and the reasons why vocal music teachers engage in this profession. It was found that nearly half of the students said that the vocal curriculum was less or monotonous, or not even, and that further improvements were needed in classroom teaching models and the spread of multicultural knowledge. In terms of teacher welfare, only 41.8% have social welfare, of which 12.8% need to meet certain conditions. Although there are many part-time teachers, their welfare needs to be improved. The development of vocal music teaching can keep up with the trend of the times and develop the online education industry.
