Invest in your body to maintain your healthy voice. That might sound strange, but a healthy voice requires a healthy body. Your investment starts with a diet that-™s rich in vegetable, fruits, whole grains and water. You-™ll want to limit sweets and preservatives. Next, stop smoking, limit alcohol and avoid illegal drugs. They damage your body and your voice. Every day, exercise. Improved health and fitness improves your ability to fight illness and project your voice. Finally, rest. Go to bed on time at night, and avoid yelling, cheering or singing for extended times. With a healthy body, you maintain a healthy voice.
Taking vocal lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning how to sing with good technique. Finding the additional time out of a busy schedule to transport your child to and from their lessons can be difficult, making home lessons a convenient, time and money saving option. The only thing necessary for home lessons is a quiet room in which to sing! There is no difference between the lesson content of studio or home lessons - only the location is different. Home lessons help provide a safe, familiar and comfortable learning environment for students.
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.

We strongly encourage students to start voice lessons at age 11 or 12. Training a voice that is younger than this can sometimes lead to future damage if the teacher is not specifically trained to teach younger students. As soon as a student begins the process of puberty and adolescence this would be a good time to begin vocal training. We also strongly encourage students who are younger than this age to start with another instrument like piano or guitar, because this will help them improve their basic musicianship skills before progressing to voice lessons.
