To protect your voice and keep it healthy, protect your body. You-™ll want to start by getting enough rest. Rest your body by going to bed on time every night, and rest your voice by limiting the amount of singing and yelling you do. Next, eat a balanced diet. Vegetables, fruits and whole grains fuel your body and improve your voice. Then exercise. Aerobic exercise is especially important because it improves your lung capacity and helps your body fight illness. Finally, stop smoking. This habit damages your voice and your lungs. With a focus on protecting your body, you also protect your voice and keep it healthy and strong.

The convenience of in-home voice lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
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.
Starting vocal lessons is a great way to realize your singing dreams. Many people aspire to be a performing artist or professional singer, so learning the vocal techniques necessary to reach such standards will require expert tutoring from an experienced teacher. Whilst lessons can be customized to meet the goals of those who want to prepare for auditions, learn specific techniques such as vibrato, extending the vocal range or improving pitch and developing their performance skills, some students may wish to simply learn to sing for fun. Whatever the goal, learning to sing is fun, creative and rewarding.
Students who take vocal lessons from a young age will learn safe, effective vocal techniques that are suited to the current level of ability of vocal maturity. Learning good vocal habits early on prevents the risk of injury or fatigue or possible misuse of the voice in the future. Students will also be exposed to a creative, fun, musical environment which can be good for their overall development and can help instil a positive attitude and hard working ethics through regular practice and lessons. Students of this age (11-12 years old) will work on pitch, basic techniques and music theory.
