Maintaining a healthy voice is essential for singers. Invest in your instrument when you keep your body healthy. First, drink plenty of water. It keeps you hydrated and helps your body function properly. Next, eat a balanced diet that-™s heavy with whole grains, produce and lean proteins. Then perform aerobic exercises every day. They expand your lung capacity and keep your body strong. You must stop smoking, and avoid taking illegal drugs. Finally, get plenty of physical rest, and rest your voice. You may want to sing all day, but that hurts your voice over time. Keep your voice healthy when you invest in your physical health.

The focus of singing lessons will be to teach students how to sing using proper technique in a safe way. Students will work on a variety of different vocal exercises than are designed to build strength, coordination and power to the voice. Students will learn how to bridge and connect their vocal registers in order to expand their vocal range, add vibrato to their singing and learn how to properly support the voice in order to sing long passages and create a strong, full sounding vocal tone. For students with pitch problems, teachers can work through specific exercises to address such issues and get students singing on pitch. Students will learn how to put the various techniques and exercises that are taught into practical use by singing songs. The techniques taught can be applied to a variety of musical genres, from Metal to Pop. Students can also learn music theory and vocal physiology.
Adults start taking singing lessons for a variety of reasons. Some students maybe sang in their younger days such as their school choir or high school band and want to start singing again, others aspire to become a recording artist and some want to prepare themselves for auditions such as The X-Factor, American Idol or The Voice. Advanced students may want to work on a specific technique such as building strength in the head voice or improving their support and breath management. Singing is a great way to express yourself creatively and can also develop confidence and self-esteem in students of all ages and abilities.
Voice students are suggested to start lessons at age 12 or older. This is due to the vocal development of the student and the transition of the voice from childhood to adulthood. Beginning to study voice too young, can sometimes lead to decreased vocal production later on if the student is not receiving the proper training. We also encourage students who are younger than age 12 to study another instrument like piano, which will teach them basic music fundamentals, and help them if they decide to pursue voice at a later time.
