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.

Age 11 or 12 is the best time to begin voice lessons. When a student starts to mature emotionally and physically during adolescence, this is the appropriate time to begin lessons on vocal technique. Starting voice lessons younger than age 12 can be very demanding on an untrained voice and can cause damage if the student is not vocally ready. Students that have studied another instrument previously, before starting voice, are also at a distinct advantage, because they will know how to read music already and will be able to learn music at a faster pace.
