In order to maximize your ability to sing, it is important to be conscious of how the voice works and ways in which to keep it healthy. The best ways to help prevent any vocal problems are through warming up properly before singing and to keep the voice hydrated by drinking room temperature water. Vocal problems often arise through poor singing technique, such as shouting or straining to sing higher notes. This causes vocal fatigue as the vocal folds become overwhelmed due to excessive air pressure passing through them. Avoid shouting and stop singing if there is constriction or tension in the throat.
In order to make the most of singing lessons, it is important that students feel comfortable and not self-conscious. As such, the best environment for learns is the home, as it is a familiar environment with which they can feel more confident in. If students are comfortable and relaxed, they can focus and concentrate on the lessons more. Whilst lessons content is the whether at home or in the studio, singing in an unfamiliar environment can be daunting and create nervousness for students. Taking lessons from home is also the most convenient way to learn, as it negates having to travel to and from the lesson.
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.

Does your child want to audition for a local musical show or national reality singing competition? He or she should wait until after puberty to take voice lessons. At that time, the voice is mature and the risk of vocal cord damage or strain is limited. Puberty typically occurs when kids are between 11 and 12 years old. By waiting until your child is that age, you protect the voice. You also provide your child with a better chance of success during auditions and performances your child wants to participate in.
