Vocal health is very important for keeping your voice feeling and sounding great! Many professional singers advise that you try to maintain the overall health of your body because this will significantly affect your voice. Suggestions offered by professionals include eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, practicing stress reduction techniques and getting regular exercise. It is important to drink enough water and to also avoid excess alchol, antihistamines, and screaming or singing for too long without rest, because this can damage your voice.
Mastering the art of singing can be a long and strenuous process, but taking lessons in your home offers a very convenient way to learn! The in-home lessons require a piano or keyboard for the teacher to lead your lessons on, as well as an open mind! Adult voice lessons will be tailored to your own individual needs and musical styles.
Voice lessons improve your singing ability and your vocal performance. Whether you want to audition for a national reality show or prepare for a theatrical performance, Musika instructors are here to help. Our professional teachers create a customized lesson plan for each student that helps you meet your singing goals. We help you discover the best singing genre and style for your voice, and we can guide your song choice. Typically, your teacher will assign you an affordable method book or other supplemental materials for practice. You can find these books at online or local music stores. A partial list of topics you will learn during voice lessons includes: Proper breathing control techniques, How to support your voice and increase volume, Voice projection tips, How to read musical notation, How to interpret song lyrics and phrases with expression and emotion, Audition and performance tips and techniques, including overcoming stage fright.
Adults of all ages and abilities are welcome to start taking singing lessons. Learning to sing is a great way to develop your musicianship, confidence and self-esteem, and is a fun and rewarding skill to learn. Students who have specific goals in mind such as range extension, learning to correct pitch problems or to correct bad vocal habits and technique, can achieve these goals with our expert vocal coaches. Many students just want to learn to sing for their own enjoyment and love of singing, or would like to join and a band or singing group. All lessons are customized with these goals in mind.
We recommend beginning Voice lessons at age 11 or 12. The vocal instrument, unlike other instruments, is attached to the body. Starting voice lessons too young, or when the student is not emotionally ready or mature, can lead to vocal damage or straining. Many of our instructors are capable of working with younger students under this age, but it is our opinion, and the opinion of many other Vocal Education professionals, that the student should wait until their body has begun the process of puberty before beginning voice lessons.
