Learning to sing using the correct techniques and coordinations is the most important element to maintaining vocal health and limiting the risk of injury. A common issue with untrained singers is shouting, forcing or pushing the voice when trying to sing high notes. This places great strain on the voice, causing vocal fatigue, and should therefore be avoided. The vocal folds can also become irritated by mucus derived from allergies or illness, so it is important to rest the voice well through plenty of sleep and maintain vocal hydration by drinking water. Before singing, a good vocal warm up should always be completed in order to prepare the voice

During their lessons, students will learn how to sing with good, safe and effective vocal technique. Learning to sing with good technique is the cornerstone to improving the tone, range and health of the voice during singing. Students will learn how to warm up properly, how to increase their vocal range, how to improve and strengthen their tone, performance techniques, how to accurately replicate pitch, how to support their singing with good breathing techniques, song interpretation and how to apply these techniques to singing their favourite songs. Vocal technique is not genre specific - the techniques taught can be applied to almost any genre of music. Students will develop these skills by vocalizing to piano scales. These vocal exercises are things such as; singing different vowel sounds on different scales, sirens, lip rolls and trills, articulation exercises and respiratory exercises. The exercises are tailored to the specific needs and ability levels of each individual student.
Taking vocal lessons at any age can be highly rewarding and great fun. Students often take lessons with various aims and goals in mind. Some students want to learn how to increase their vocal range and will have lessons and exercises planned to achieve that particular goal. Some students would like to improve their singing ability in order to feel confident enough to audition for talent shows, competitions or to join a band or choir. It is quite common for students to take vocal lessons purely because they love to sing and want to improve for their own enjoyment.
Learning to sing as a child is fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their ability to accurately recreate pitch, theory knowledge and singing technique. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and familiarity with different musical genres. Learning to sing can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, entering competitions or performing live. Students are advised to start their lessons no earlier that 12 years of age, as they have yet to reach vocal maturity.
