Musika vocal lessons will be based on teaching students good, safe vocal technique that can be applied to a wide range of musical genres and singing styles. Students of all abilities and experience will be catered for, as lessons are devised to suit the requirements of each individual student. Beginner students will work on their pitch, tone and vocal range by doing various different exercises such as sirens, singing different vowels along a scale and learning how to properly support the voice through breath management. These exercises are designed to build strength, timing and coordination in order to traverse the passagio, allowing students to sing notes in their head voice register, thus extending their range. Students can also develop their song interpretation skills, performance techniques and style development. As students advance, they can learn techniques and skills such as messa di voce, runs and fills, vibrato and genre-specific techniques like distortion in Rock singing or covering the voice for Musical Theatre or Classical singing.

Voice lessons prepare your child for vocal auditions, competitions and performances. Young children, however, are not physically prepared for formal voice training. Vocal cord damage or strain is a potential risk that comes with starting voice lessons too soon. For vocal protection and the best results, we recommend kids wait and take voice lessons after they reach puberty, or around 11 or 12 years of age. The vocal cords are more mature at that time, and kids minimize the risks of prolonged damage when they wait until after puberty to take voice lessons from our professional instructors.
