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.
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.
During singing lessons, students of all abilities will learn and develop safe, effective vocal techniques that can be applied to a multitude of musical genres and styles. Students will learn how to properly warm their voices up by working through various exercises such as sirens, lip rolls and trills and vocalizing various vowel sounds along to different scales. Lessons will cover topics such as vocal physiology and how the voice works so that students understand what a particular exercise achieves. Students will learn how to increase and strengthen their vocal range by learning how to bridge and connect their voices through the vocal break or passagio and into the head voice. Students can also work on their tone and breath support, and start applying these various techniques to singing actual songs. Students will also learn things such as music theory, song interpretation and style development, and can prepare for gigs and auditions.
Learning how to sing can be highly rewarding, enjoyable and carries many other benefits. Learning correct vocal technique and singing can keep your voice healthy, relieve stress (music theory) and have positive social impacts - such as joining a choir group, band or participating in karaoke nights! Taking lessons with our experienced teachers can also be beneficial for those who would like a professional, objective assessment of their voices or for those who would like to learn or work on a specific vocal technique. Students can also be prepared for exams, gigs and auditions.
Singing is a fun activity kids enjoy doing in front of their mirror as they dream of becoming the next great talent. Their voice must be protected, though, from damage and strain. That-™s why we recommend that kids wait until puberty to start formal voice lessons. Around the age of 11 or 12, a child-™s voice is mature enough to participate in regular vocal lessons. Our instructors teach students of all ages, but we prefer waiting until a child-™s voice has matured. By waiting, the risk of damage or strain is minimized so a child can successfully perform in front of the mirror or on a national stage.
