For a healthy voice, take care of your body. When it-™s healthy, your vocal cords and singing voice are healthy. A balanced diet is the first step to achieving maximum health. Limit sweets, and eat plenty of fresh vegetables, fruit, whole grains and lean protein. You-™ll also want to drink plenty of water instead of other beverages. Regular exercise is the next step toward a healthy voice. Aerobics and other activities strengthen your body and increase your fitness level. Proper rest includes getting enough sleep at night and protecting your voice from overuse. With these tips, you live a healthy lifestyle and keep your voice healthy too.

Students will learn and develop good, safe and effective vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The best way to build a strong, powerful voice is to learn the techniques and practice the exercises covered in lessons. The essence of good vocal technique is centred around being able to successfully bridge from the chest voice to the head voice, with no vocal breaks or noticeable change in tonality. To do this successfully requires strength, timing and coordination of the intrinsic muscles of the larynx, the ability to maintain good vocal fold closure and to tilt the thyroid cartilage. To do these things successfully students will also learn how to support their singing with breath management, as it is important that the air pressure above and below the vocal folds is balanced. During lessons, students will be taught the exercises in order to successfully master these skills. They will also learn about performance, stylistic and interpretive techniques and how to apply them to singing songs.
Adults of all ages and abilities are welcome to start taking singing lessons. Learning to sing is a great way to develop your musicianship, confidence and self-esteem, and is a fun and rewarding skill to learn. Students who have specific goals in mind such as range extension, learning to correct pitch problems or to correct bad vocal habits and technique, can achieve these goals with our expert vocal coaches. Many students just want to learn to sing for their own enjoyment and love of singing, or would like to join and a band or singing group. All lessons are customized with these goals in mind.
Taking singing lessons at an early age can be a great advantage in the vocal development of students. Young students can get a head start in their singing abilities as they will learn from an early age how to hear and recreate pitch, work on their timing, start to build strength and coordination in their singing, develop a good understanding of how the voice works and music theory and can be exposed to a variety of styles and musical genres. We recommend that students take lessons from about the age of 11 or 12, as not to place too much pressure and strain on their voices before they have fully matured.
