If you want a healthy voice, you need a healthy body. That means eating a balanced diet, exercising every day, resting properly and reducing stress. Start with meals and snacks that include fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Drink plenty of water, not beverages loaded with sugar or caffeine. Stop smoking, and spend time each day doing exercises that expand your lung capacity and keep your body fit. Set and keep a regular bedtime, and reduce stress through meditation or by perhaps practicing yoga every day. Rest your voice too instead of screaming or yelling. With your healthy body, enjoy a healthy voice.

Vocal lessons will cover various aspects of singing, such as vocal technique, song interpretation and developing a personal singing style. During lessons, students will work through different exercises that are designed to workout and develop different aspects of the voice. Students will practice exercises such as sirens on an octave scale, as these are great for helping to develop the necessary timing and coordination needed to cross vocal registers and start building vocal range. Developing range requires maintaining vocal fold compression through the passagio and into the head voice, tilting the thyroid cartilage and modifying closed vowel sounds to open vowels. Students will also learn how to support their voices with good breath management and can apply the techniques learnt to songs of various genres. Students can also improve their tone, pitching and musical theory knowledge, as well as prepare for gigs, recording sessions or auditions.

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.
