The voice is the only instrument which actively requires the use of your entire body for its function. This is why maintaining the health of your body in general is crucial to maintaining the health of your voice. Smoking, excessive drinking of alcohol, caffeine, and the use of illegal drugs or certain medications is strongly discouraged. Singers are encouraged to drink room temperature water to promote the hydration of their vocal chords. Excessive screaming, loud singing, or singing for long amounts of time without a rest can cause damage to your voice, and should be avoided. It is important to eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to keep your whole body and voice healthy. Daily exercise is strongly encouraged, especially activities that require the use of your lungs such as swimming, running, cycling, or aerobics classes, all of which will increase your breath control capacity when singing.
Your voice is the one instrument that accompanies you wherever you go. Polish it with in-home voice lessons. Professional Musika instructors arrive at your home ready to teach you how to choose songs that fit your voice, maximize your singing performance and care for your instrument. All we need is a piano or keyboard, music and your willingness to work. Whether you sing classical, country or R&B, we help you polish your voice. Prepare for a professional performance, an appearance on a reality singing competition or a solo at a local event when you take in-home voice lessons.
Voice lessons will focus on developing proper breathing technique and vocal technique and ways to improve your singing. You will learn how to support and project your voice, you will learn how to read music so that you can read the melody of the singing line. You will also learn how to interpret different styles of music, performance techniques, how to emotionally interpret song lyrics and phrases. The most important thing you will learn in voice lessons is how to express yourself through singing!
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.
Voice students are suggested to start lessons at age 12 or older. This is due to the vocal development of the student and the transition of the voice from childhood to adulthood. Beginning to study voice too young, can sometimes lead to decreased vocal production later on if the student is not receiving the proper training. We also encourage students who are younger than age 12 to study another instrument like piano, which will teach them basic music fundamentals, and help them if they decide to pursue voice at a later time.
