A healthy body makes a healthy voice. In fact, your voice is the only instrument that uses your entire body to function. Take care of your body and your voice when you watch what you eat and drink. Limit sugar and processed foods. Instead, eat a nutritious diet that-™s loaded with vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Drink plenty of water instead of beverages with caffeine or sugar. You should also stop smoking and limit alcoholic beverages. Daily, try to exercise. It strengthens your lungs and your vocal ability. Then rest. Your body and your voice need time to recuperate quietly as you seek to keep your voice healthy.

Students will learn and develop good, safe and effective vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The best way to build a strong, powerful voice is to learn the techniques and practice the exercises covered in lessons. The essence of good vocal technique is centred around being able to successfully bridge from the chest voice to the head voice, with no vocal breaks or noticeable change in tonality. To do this successfully requires strength, timing and coordination of the intrinsic muscles of the larynx, the ability to maintain good vocal fold closure and to tilt the thyroid cartilage. To do these things successfully students will also learn how to support their singing with breath management, as it is important that the air pressure above and below the vocal folds is balanced. During lessons, students will be taught the exercises in order to successfully master these skills. They will also learn about performance, stylistic and interpretive techniques and how to apply them to singing songs.
As an adult voice student, you-™ll learn more than proper breathing techniques. You will also improve your vocal range, prepare for reality singing competitions and improve your vocal stage performance. Start with your favorite genre. After choosing Opera, Country, R&B or any other genre, decide along with your instructor which style and songs fit your voice the best. Then practice the exercises your trained Musika instructor assigns you each week. Whether you choose in-home or in-studio lessons, adult voice lessons teach you a variety of skills that helps you succeed as a vocal musician on and off the stage.
Taking singing lessons at an early age can be a great advantage in the vocal development of students. Young students can get a head start in their singing abilities as they will learn from an early age how to hear and recreate pitch, work on their timing, start to build strength and coordination in their singing, develop a good understanding of how the voice works and music theory and can be exposed to a variety of styles and musical genres. We recommend that students take lessons from about the age of 11 or 12, as not to place too much pressure and strain on their voices before they have fully matured.
