The best way to maintain vocal health is to learn how to sing using the correct techniques. Some advanced techniques, such as extending vocal range or learning to sing with distortion, should not be practiced without the guidance of a qualified teacher, as they can be dangerous if performed incorrectly. When learning such techniques, untrained singers may shout or push their voices which causes strain, constriction and ultimately fatigue or damage to the vocal folds. To best preserve the voice, singers should learn the correct techniques, warm up, drink plenty of water and limit their intake of vocal irritants such as smoking, alcohol and sugary goods.
In order to make the most of singing lessons, it is important that students feel comfortable and not self-conscious. As such, the best environment for learns is the home, as it is a familiar environment with which they can feel more confident in. If students are comfortable and relaxed, they can focus and concentrate on the lessons more. Whilst lessons content is the whether at home or in the studio, singing in an unfamiliar environment can be daunting and create nervousness for students. Taking lessons from home is also the most convenient way to learn, as it negates having to travel to and from the lesson.

For children who want to learn how to sing, we recommend beginning voice lessons at age 11 or 12. The vocal instrument, unlike other instruments, is attached to the body. Starting voice lessons too young, or when the student is not emotionally ready or mature, can lead to vocal damage or strain. Many of our instructors are capable of working with younger students under the recommended age, but it is our opinion, and the opinion of many other Vocal Education professionals, that the student should wait until their body has begun the process of puberty before beginning voice lessons.
