Your voice is only as healthy as your body. That-™s because you can-™t sing your best if your body is unhealthy, sick, tired or stressed. Improve your vocal performance by caring for your physical health. Eat a balanced diet, and drink plenty of water. Quit smoking, don-™t take illegal drugs and limit alcohol. Strengthen your core, including your lungs, by performing aerobic exercises every day. Rest your body with a good night-™s sleep, and reduce stress during the day. You-™ll also want to rest your voice, which means limiting yelling, cheering or screaming. To keep you voice healthy, keep your body health.

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.
We teach singing to adults of all ages, each of whom have different aims and goals in mind. For many adults, they want to learn how to sing simply for fun or for their karaoke nights. For others, they may want to develop their voices with the goal of becoming a professional vocalist in mind. Advanced students often want to learn a few specific techniques or work on some exercises, such as increasing their range, improving their support, singing with distortion, vibrato etc... We have a range of experienced teachers who can help with your specific 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.
