A healthy voice requires a healthy body. Start by exercising every day. Swimming, running and playing sports improve your body, lungs and heart health and lead to a healthy voice. Then eat a nutritious diet. Load up on vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Limit sugar, caffeine and alcohol. You-™ll also want to stop smoking because it damages your voice. Rest is also important. Make time to get enough sleep every night, and try to reduce stress. Rest your voice too by avoiding yelling, screaming or cheering. As you care for your body, you also care for your voice and keep it strong and healthy.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home singing lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home singing lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to sing in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure and familiar environment.

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!
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.
