A healthy voice requires a healthy body. Start by exercising every day. Swimming, running and playing sports improve your body, lungs and heart health and lead to a healthy voice. Then eat a nutritious diet. Load up on vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Limit sugar, caffeine and alcohol. You-™ll also want to stop smoking because it damages your voice. Rest is also important. Make time to get enough sleep every night, and try to reduce stress. Rest your voice too by avoiding yelling, screaming or cheering. As you care for your body, you also care for your voice and keep it strong and healthy.
If singing is your passion, consider in-home voice lessons. Musika instructors provide individualized and customized lessons based on your needs and wants. Instead of wasting time driving to lessons, dust off your piano, buy affordable sheet music and welcome an instructor into your home. He or she teaches you how to project, control and protect your voice, and we are experienced in teaching any type of music, from classical to modern. Prepare for professional competitions or improve your vocal abilities for recreational singing with in-home voice lessons. Then enjoy exercising your musical passion, and sing!
Voice lessons focus on development of vocal skills and breathing techniques to help increase projection of the voice and improve the range of the voice. Students will learn how to read music and also learn to emotionally interpret lyrics and melodies during their performance. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles in your lessons ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop.
Learning how to sing can be a great musical endeavor for adults of all ages. Lessons are customized with the specific goals of the student in mind, and focus around learning safe, effective and contemporary vocal techniques. For many students, taking lessons is about finding a new hobby or getting to practice something they have always enjoyed doing. Others may wish to join a choir or band, or maybe would like to prepare for an audition. We have trained students to sing at auditions for American Idol, The Voice and The X Factor.
Age 11 or 12 is the best time to begin voice lessons. When a student starts to mature emotionally and physically during adolescence, this is the appropriate time to begin lessons on vocal technique. Starting voice lessons younger than age 12 can be very demanding on an untrained voice and can cause damage if the student is not vocally ready. Students that have studied another instrument previously, before starting voice, are also at a distinct advantage, because they will know how to read music already and will be able to learn music at a faster pace.
