Singing is a physical endeavor that requires effort, strength and coordination. The best way to ensure good vocal health is to sing and train using safe techniques. Bad technique or abusing the voice can cause vocal fatigue or even damage, such as nodules.The quickest and easiest way to wear out the voice is through shouting, screaming, or forcing the voice - often in order to sing higher notes. By avoiding such bad habits, as well as by limiting the consumption of vocal irritants such as alcohol, tobacco and food with a high sugar content, singer reduce the risk of injury or vocal fatigue
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. 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.
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.
As an adult voice student, you-™ll learn more than proper breathing techniques. You will also improve your vocal range, prepare for reality singing competitions and improve your vocal stage performance. Start with your favorite genre. After choosing Opera, Country, R&B or any other genre, decide along with your instructor which style and songs fit your voice the best. Then practice the exercises your trained Musika instructor assigns you each week. Whether you choose in-home or in-studio lessons, adult voice lessons teach you a variety of skills that helps you succeed as a vocal musician on and off the stage.
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.
