More Information About Voice Lessons

Singing is a physical endeavor that requires effort, strength and coordination. The muscular of the voice is very delicate so it is important to sing using safe techniques. Forcing or pushing the voice is a common cause of vocal fatigue and should be avoided. Check for tension or constriction in the throat, as this is sign of bad technique. The extrinsic muscles of the voice (neck, jaw and cheeks) should be relaxed and there should be no discomfort of pain when sining. The best way to avoid vocal fatigue or injury is through warm ups, sleep and hydration
In home voice lessons are a convenient way to learn the art of singing! Our instructors are qualified to teach a variety of styles ranging from Opera to R&B. If you are interested in auditioning for local competitions or even reality tv shows like American Idol or The Voice, our instructors can definitely help you prepare. Most voice lesson music and materials can be purchased online or at a local music store.
Singing lessons will focus on teaching students how to sing with good vocal technique and how to apply these techniques to the art of singing songs. Students will learn exercises and techniques that enable them to sing with a clear, balanced, well-pitched vocal tone, how to support the voice and how to increase their vocal range. Students will learn these techniques through vocalizing vowel sounds on different scales that vary in difficulty, learn how to tilt the thyroid cartilage in order to bridge into the head voice for range extension and how to reduce the use of the extrinsic muscles of the larynx to avoid constriction when ascending in pitch. Students can develop their performance techniques and song interpretation, and learn advanced techniques and exercises such as developing vibrato, rasp/distortion effects, messa di voce and vocal run and fills. Students can also be prepared for auditions, exams and gigs.
Voice lessons for adults will focus on adult-level technical exercises and repertoire choices. Lessons can be taught on various styles, and are tailor made to suit your style and skill level. If you are singing for the first time in your life, taking lessons as an adult is a great way to improve your musical skills.
Taking voice lessons is one way your child can prepare for a reality singing show competition or a career as a vocal performer. Prematurely starting voice lesson could cause vocal damage or strain, though. We recommend children wait until they are 11 or 12 years old. At that time, a child is undergoing puberty, and his or her vocal cords are mature enough to handle the rigorous training involved in voice lessons. Waiting is difficult for kids, but the benefits include vocal protection. Your child is more likely to succeed at auditions and performances when he or she waits until puberty for formal vocal training.
