Your voice is only as healthy as your body. That-™s because you can-™t sing your best if your body is unhealthy, sick, tired or stressed. Improve your vocal performance by caring for your physical health. Eat a balanced diet, and drink plenty of water. Quit smoking, don-™t take illegal drugs and limit alcohol. Strengthen your core, including your lungs, by performing aerobic exercises every day. Rest your body with a good night-™s sleep, and reduce stress during the day. You-™ll also want to rest your voice, which means limiting yelling, cheering or screaming. To keep you voice healthy, keep your body health.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home singing lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule. For younger students in particular, having vocal lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying their singing.
Voice lessons focus on developing performing techniques, vocal techniques and how to support your voice properly for singing. You will learn how to read and interpret music, how to bring your own emotions to your performances, and how to enhance the quality of your singing in preparation for auditions.
Our adult voice lessons are taught by qualified teachers who will come up with an individual lesson plan suited to your goals and needs. Our teachers specialize in many genres of music from classical to contemporary and can offer you practical techniques and suggestions for your performing and musical goals. Voice lessons are structured to include time for warm ups, technique exercises, and repertoire study. Adults take a 45 minute or hour lesson once a week.
Kids who love to sing may ask for voice lessons, but we recommend children postpone vocal training until they are 11 or 12 years old. Vocal cords typically do not mature until kids reach puberty. Before that age, the child-™s voice is not ready for the rigorous exercising required to succeed in singing. Premature voice lessons could damage or strain a child-™s voice and potentially reduce future vocal performance. For maximum protection of a child-™s voice, wait until after puberty to start child voice lessons. Then your child is ready to begin prolonged training that improves their singing ability.
