The art of singing is a physical endeavor that requires fine muscular strength and coordination of the voice and respiratory mechanisms. As such, a good warm up is essential before a performance or at the start of a lesson or practice session, and will help to prevent injury. The vocal folds are very delicate and can be easily damaged through misuse, such as bad technique or shouting, or overuse, such as practicing for too long or generally using the voice for long periods at a time (such as public speaking), which can cause vocal fatigue. It is important to maintain good hydration levels and get plenty of sleep for vocal recovery.

Vocal lessons will cover various aspects of singing, such as vocal technique, song interpretation and developing a personal singing style. During lessons, students will work through different exercises that are designed to workout and develop different aspects of the voice. Students will practice exercises such as sirens on an octave scale, as these are great for helping to develop the necessary timing and coordination needed to cross vocal registers and start building vocal range. Developing range requires maintaining vocal fold compression through the passagio and into the head voice, tilting the thyroid cartilage and modifying closed vowel sounds to open vowels. Students will also learn how to support their voices with good breath management and can apply the techniques learnt to songs of various genres. Students can also improve their tone, pitching and musical theory knowledge, as well as prepare for gigs, recording sessions or auditions.

Children who want to take voice lessons should wait until they-™re at least 11 or 12 years old. At that time, their voice is maturing, and they are emotionally ready to practice regularly and apply themselves. Starting voice lessons before puberty could cause vocal cord damage and strain. That damage potentially jeopardizes future vocal performances. By waiting a few years, children protect their voice. Then they can start lessons and prepare to audition for local, regional and national competitions or performances in their teen and adult years.
