The health of your voice requires the health of your entire body to be at its best form. Many voice professionals advise that students drink adequate water, get enough rest, avoid stress, and exercise regularly. Singers are advised to not talk or scream at excessive levels on the days of performances, and to also avoid overuse of alcohol or antihistamines as they can dry out your vocal folds and make singing efficiently more difficult.
Taking vocal lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning how to sing with good technique. Finding the additional time out of a busy schedule to transport your child to and from their lessons can be difficult, making home lessons a convenient, time and money saving option. The only thing necessary for home lessons is a quiet room in which to sing! There is no difference between the lesson content of studio or home lessons - only the location is different. Home lessons help provide a safe, familiar and comfortable learning environment for students.

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!
Does your child want to audition for a local musical show or national reality singing competition? He or she should wait until after puberty to take voice lessons. At that time, the voice is mature and the risk of vocal cord damage or strain is limited. Puberty typically occurs when kids are between 11 and 12 years old. By waiting until your child is that age, you protect the voice. You also provide your child with a better chance of success during auditions and performances your child wants to participate in.
