In order to maximize your ability to sing, it is important to be conscious of how the voice works and ways in which to keep it healthy. The best ways to help prevent any vocal problems are through warming up properly before singing and to keep the voice hydrated by drinking room temperature water. Vocal problems often arise through poor singing technique, such as shouting or straining to sing higher notes. This causes vocal fatigue as the vocal folds become overwhelmed due to excessive air pressure passing through them. Avoid shouting and stop singing if there is constriction or tension in the throat.
Taking voice lessons in your home is a great way to enhance your musical skills without ever leaving your living room! As long as you have a piano or keyboard available, we can arrange for a teacher to come directly to you. Our professional teacher will help you learn the songs you want, and enhance your vocal skills, including the range and tone of your voice.
Voice lessons focus on development of vocal skills and breathing techniques. They also help you increase you voice-™s projection and range. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop. With help from Musika-™s trained instructors, learn how to read music and how to interpret lyrics and melodies with emotion during your auditions and performance.

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!
Singing for pleasure or as a profession is one fantasy many kids have. To be successful, they need voice lessons, but a child-™s voice isn-™t ready for vocal training until the child has reached puberty. At that time, the voice is mature enough to undergo regular singing, vocal exercises and other rigors associated with voice lessons. We recommend kids wait until they are at least 11 or 12 before they start voice lessons. Our instructors can then provide the personalized instruction your child needs while he or she pursues the possibility of a profession in voice performance.
