In order to maintain and develop singing ability, it is important to take care of the voice. To sing in a strong, full-sounding vocal tone through the whole range of the voice requires maintaining good vocal fold closure. Damaging or irritating the vocal folds can reduce their ability to close or compress and lead to problems. Mucus caused by allergies or illness can irritate the folds, as can sugary foods, smoking, alcohol and dehydration. Water, rest and avoiding problem substances or foods are the best ways to maintain vocal health. It is also important to warm up before singing.
In order to make the most of singing lessons, it is important that students feel comfortable and not self-conscious. As such, the best environment for learns is the home, as it is a familiar environment with which they can feel more confident in. If students are comfortable and relaxed, they can focus and concentrate on the lessons more. Whilst lessons content is the whether at home or in the studio, singing in an unfamiliar environment can be daunting and create nervousness for students. Taking lessons from home is also the most convenient way to learn, as it negates having to travel to and from the lesson.

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.
