For vocalists of all abilities, it is important to keep the voice healthy. Before singing - whether it be a live performance, a lesson or practice - vocalists should be sure to do a good warm up, which can last anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes depending on the singer or type of signing about to be performed. All singers should make sure they consume plenty of water throughout the day in order to keep the voice hydrated. A dry throat, along with things such as allergies, coughing, alcohol and tobacco, can irritate the vocal folds and hinder performance levels.
Master the art of singing with in-home voice lessons. Professional instructors from Musika come to your house and help you improve your control and projections.

You can also learn which songs best fit your voice and how to sing a variety of genres. If you want to be the best singer you can be, you need voice lessons. Take them from the comfort of your home to save time and become a singing master.
Regardless of whether you want to sing Rock, Pop, Folk or Musical Theatre, our vocal lessons can develop your singing technique in a safe, effective way that can be applied to all of the above genres and many more. Students will learn a whole host of fun exercises that are designed to develop your vocal technique and build strength, endurance and vocal power. Through a good understanding of how the voice works and by practicing the exercises taught during lessons, you can improve your vocal tonality, develop skills such as vibrato, pitch, harmony and increase your vocal range - usually by at least one full octave. You will learn how connect the chest and head registers, maintain steady air pressure and vocal fold closure, tilting of the thyroid cartilage (to switch registers) and how to build these techniques until you can apply them to your favourite songs.
Our lessons for adults are focused around teaching vocal technique with the specific aims of the student in mind. Many adults are just looking to improve their singing for their own enjoyment.We also teach students who are auditioning for talent shows such as American Idol, or who are preparing for exams, recording sessions or gigs. Adult students may want an honest, professional assessment of their voices, as family or friends - well-meaning as they may be - are often not an object judge. Learning to sing can be a good boost to confidence, develop all-round musicianship and is open to adults of all ages.
Taking voice lessons is one way your child can prepare for a reality singing show competition or a career as a vocal performer. Prematurely starting voice lesson could cause vocal damage or strain, though. We recommend children wait until they are 11 or 12 years old. At that time, a child is undergoing puberty, and his or her vocal cords are mature enough to handle the rigorous training involved in voice lessons. Waiting is difficult for kids, but the benefits include vocal protection. Your child is more likely to succeed at auditions and performances when he or she waits until puberty for formal vocal training.
