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.
Your voice is the one instrument that accompanies you wherever you go. Polish it with in-home voice lessons. Professional Musika instructors arrive at your home ready to teach you how to choose songs that fit your voice, maximize your singing performance and care for your instrument. All we need is a piano or keyboard, music and your willingness to work. Whether you sing classical, country or R&B, we help you polish your voice. Prepare for a professional performance, an appearance on a reality singing competition or a solo at a local event when you take in-home voice lessons.
Students will learn and develop good, safe and modern vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The aim is to get students to be able to sing without strain, discomfort of constriction, throughout the whole of their range, in key and in a clean, full sounding tone - and then apply these techniques to singing songs or various genres. Students will learn how to bridge and connect their vocal registers in order to expand their vocal range, add vibrato to their singing and learn how to properly support the voice in order to sing long passages and create a strong, full sounding vocal tone. Our teachers can also help students who have tuning problems by conducting exercises that work on their pitch. Lessons will also cover musical theory, performance tips and vocal effects, such as safe vibrato and developing vocal agility through runs and fills. Students can also learn music theory and vocal physiology.
Students studying voice for the first time as an adult can look forward to working on vocal exercises and breathing techniques which can help improve their range and tone. Adult students may be interested in studying primarily classical vocal technique, or they may want to focus on different styles like pop or jazz. Our instructors can help you reach your musical and stylistic goals!
Voice lessons prepare your child for vocal auditions, competitions and performances. Young children, however, are not physically prepared for formal voice training. Vocal cord damage or strain is a potential risk that comes with starting voice lessons too soon. For vocal protection and the best results, we recommend kids wait and take voice lessons after they reach puberty, or around 11 or 12 years of age. The vocal cords are more mature at that time, and kids minimize the risks of prolonged damage when they wait until after puberty to take voice lessons from our professional instructors.
