The voice is the only instrument which actively requires the use of your entire body for its function. This is why maintaining the health of your body in general is crucial to maintaining the health of your voice. Smoking, excessive drinking of alcohol, caffeine, and the use of illeagal drugs or certain medications is strongly discouraged. Singers are encouraged to drink room temperature water to promote the hydration of their vocal chords. Excessive screaming, loud singing, or singing for long amounts of time without a rest can cause damage to your voice, and should be avoided. It is important to eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to keep your whole body and voice healthy. Daily exercise is strongly encouraged, especially activities that require the use of your lungs such as swimming, running, cycling, or aerobics classes, all of which will increase your breath control capacity when singing.
Voice lessons in your home offer a convenient and practical way to master the art of singing. Voice lessons in your home require a piano or keyboard so that the teacher can use that to conduct your lessons. Whether you want to learn classical voice, jazz, pop, or musical theatre styles, our instructors can provide you instruction on what songs would suit your voice best.
Students will learn and develop good, safe and modern vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The aim is to get students to be able to sing without strain, discomfort of constriction, throughout the whole of their range, in key and in a clean, full sounding tone - and then apply these techniques to singing songs or various genres. 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. Our teachers can also help students who have tuning problems by conducting exercises that work on their pitch. Lessons will also cover musical theory, performance tips and vocal effects, such as safe vibrato and developing vocal agility through runs and fills. Students can also learn music theory and vocal physiology.
Whether you-™re a first time voice student or have been taking lessons for years, adult voice lessons help you reach your musical goals. Instructors from Musika come into your house, or you can go to their studio. Each lesson is packed with practical singing tips geared specifically to you and your needs. You can learn how to care for your voice, control your breathing and choose songs that fit your voice. We even prepare you for local performances or reality show auditions. Your singing will improve, and you will feel more confident when you take adult voice lessons.
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.
