To sing your best, focus on your body-™s health because you really can-™t sing your best when your body isn-™t functioning at its best. To improve your health, spend time resting every day. Get plenty of sleep, and protect your voice from overuse. Then eat food that fuels your body. The best diet includes fruit, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein. Limit sweets, alcohol and caffeine, and drink as much water as you can. Strengthen your core and lungs with daily aerobic exercise and physical activity. As you keep your body strong and healthy, your voice will be healthy too.
Whether you sing for pleasure or sing professionally, you need voice lessons. They help you learn everything you need to know about using your singing instrument. From caring for your voice to selecting music, a voice instructor teaches you want you need to know. Yet you don-™t need to travel to a professional studio to learn how to sing. Musika instructors come to your home. They use your piano or keyboard to share their professional and experienced instruction. With in-home voice lessons, prepare for performances or practice projections while saving time and staying comfortable. Then practice everything you learned for a living or for fun.
Regardless of whether you want to sing Rock, Pop, Folk or Musical Theatre, our vocal lessons can develop your singing technique in a safe, effective way that can be applied to all of the above genres and many more. Students will learn a whole host of fun exercises that are designed to develop your vocal technique and build strength, endurance and vocal power. Through a good understanding of how the voice works and by practicing the exercises taught during lessons, you can improve your vocal tonality, develop skills such as vibrato, pitch, harmony and increase your vocal range - usually by at least one full octave. You will learn how connect the chest and head registers, maintain steady air pressure and vocal fold closure, tilting of the thyroid cartilage (to switch registers) and how to build these techniques until you can apply them to your favourite songs.
Learning how to sing can be a great musical endeavor for adults of all ages. Lessons are customized with the specific goals of the student in mind, and focus around learning safe, effective and contemporary vocal techniques. For many students, taking lessons is about finding a new hobby or getting to practice something they have always enjoyed doing. Others may wish to join a choir or band, or maybe would like to prepare for an audition. We have trained students to sing at auditions for American Idol, The Voice and The X Factor.
Taking voice lessons is one way your child can prepare for a reality singing show competition or a career as a vocal performer. Prematurely starting voice lesson could cause vocal damage or strain, though. We recommend children wait until they are 11 or 12 years old. At that time, a child is undergoing puberty, and his or her vocal cords are mature enough to handle the rigorous training involved in voice lessons. Waiting is difficult for kids, but the benefits include vocal protection. Your child is more likely to succeed at auditions and performances when he or she waits until puberty for formal vocal training.
