To sing your best, focus on your body-™s health because you really can-™t sing your best when your body isn-™t functioning at its best. To improve your health, spend time resting every day. Get plenty of sleep, and protect your voice from overuse. Then eat food that fuels your body. The best diet includes fruit, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein. Limit sweets, alcohol and caffeine, and drink as much water as you can. Strengthen your core and lungs with daily aerobic exercise and physical activity. As you keep your body strong and healthy, your voice will be healthy too.

Musika vocal lessons will be based on teaching students good, safe vocal technique that can be applied to a wide range of musical genres and singing styles. Students of all abilities and experience will be catered for, as lessons are devised to suit the requirements of each individual student. Beginner students will work on their pitch, tone and vocal range by doing various different exercises such as sirens, singing different vowels along a scale and learning how to properly support the voice through breath management. These exercises are designed to build strength, timing and coordination in order to traverse the passagio, allowing students to sing notes in their head voice register, thus extending their range. Students can also develop their song interpretation skills, performance techniques and style development. As students advance, they can learn techniques and skills such as messa di voce, runs and fills, vibrato and genre-specific techniques like distortion in Rock singing or covering the voice for Musical Theatre or Classical singing.
Our students study many different genres of music in their voice lessons, including Pop, Country, Classical, Gospel, Musical Theater, Jazz, and more! For every genre, we have an instructor who can specialize in that area, and help you achieve your musical goals. Our adult voice students actively pursue and are successful in auditions for major talent competitions such as the X-Factor, The Voice, and American Idol!
Children who want to take voice lessons should wait until they start puberty. Before age 11 or 12, the voice is not mature enough to handle singing lessons. Kids could suffer vocal damage or strain if they start formal training too early. Alternatively, waiting until kids mature reduces the risk of permanent damage. Kids stand a better chance of singing well into adulthood if they wait until their voice is mature enough for voice lessons. By waiting, they protect their vocal cords and are physically ready for regular voice lessons and daily exercises vocal training requires.
