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.

Vocal lessons will cover various aspects of singing, such as vocal technique, song interpretation and developing a personal singing style. During lessons, students will work through different exercises that are designed to workout and develop different aspects of the voice. Students will practice exercises such as sirens on an octave scale, as these are great for helping to develop the necessary timing and coordination needed to cross vocal registers and start building vocal range. Developing range requires maintaining vocal fold compression through the passagio and into the head voice, tilting the thyroid cartilage and modifying closed vowel sounds to open vowels. Students will also learn how to support their voices with good breath management and can apply the techniques learnt to songs of various genres. Students can also improve their tone, pitching and musical theory knowledge, as well as prepare for gigs, recording sessions or auditions.

Does your child want to audition for a local musical show or national reality singing competition? He or she should wait until after puberty to take voice lessons. At that time, the voice is mature and the risk of vocal cord damage or strain is limited. Puberty typically occurs when kids are between 11 and 12 years old. By waiting until your child is that age, you protect the voice. You also provide your child with a better chance of success during auditions and performances your child wants to participate in.
