Maintaining a healthy voice is essential for singers. Invest in your instrument when you keep your body healthy. First, drink plenty of water. It keeps you hydrated and helps your body function properly. Next, eat a balanced diet that-™s heavy with whole grains, produce and lean proteins. Then perform aerobic exercises every day. They expand your lung capacity and keep your body strong. You must stop smoking, and avoid taking illegal drugs. Finally, get plenty of physical rest, and rest your voice. You may want to sing all day, but that hurts your voice over time. Keep your voice healthy when you invest in your physical health.

Students will learn and develop good, safe and effective vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The best way to build a strong, powerful voice is to learn the techniques and practice the exercises covered in lessons. The essence of good vocal technique is centred around being able to successfully bridge from the chest voice to the head voice, with no vocal breaks or noticeable change in tonality. To do this successfully requires strength, timing and coordination of the intrinsic muscles of the larynx, the ability to maintain good vocal fold closure and to tilt the thyroid cartilage. To do these things successfully students will also learn how to support their singing with breath management, as it is important that the air pressure above and below the vocal folds is balanced. During lessons, students will be taught the exercises in order to successfully master these skills. They will also learn about performance, stylistic and interpretive techniques and how to apply them to singing songs.
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!
Most kids don-™t like waiting for anything, but they should wait until after puberty to take voice lessons. Their vocal cords aren-™t mature enough for voice training until puberty hits. We recommend kids wait until they are 11 or 12 years old to start voice lessons. By waiting, the risks of vocal strain and damage are reduced. Your child -˜s voice will be physically prepared to handle the training exercises and professional instruction our trained instructors provide. Your kids may not want to wait until they reach puberty, but they will benefit from delaying voice lessons until their vocal cords mature.
