During their lessons, students will learn how to sing with good, safe and effective vocal technique. Learning to sing with good technique is the cornerstone to improving the tone, range and health of the voice during singing. Students will learn how to warm up properly, how to increase their vocal range, how to improve and strengthen their tone, performance techniques, how to accurately replicate pitch, how to support their singing with good breathing techniques, song interpretation and how to apply these techniques to singing their favourite songs. Vocal technique is not genre specific - the techniques taught can be applied to almost any genre of music. Students will develop these skills by vocalizing to piano scales. These vocal exercises are things such as; singing different vowel sounds on different scales, sirens, lip rolls and trills, articulation exercises and respiratory exercises. The exercises are tailored to the specific needs and ability levels of each individual student.
There are numerable reasons why adults may wish to start taking singing lessons. Singing is a highly enjoyable, fun and creative way to express yourself musically. Many students take lessons simply to improve their singing for fun or to take up a new hobby. Students who have specific goals in mind can also have lessons to achieve those aims. Often singers want to improve a particular aspect of their singing such as increasing their vocal range or learning to sing with vibrato or greater agility (runs, fills...). Singers who have a certain style of singing in mind can also learn the techniques behind a wide range of genres.
Learning to sing as a child is fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their ability to accurately recreate pitch, theory knowledge and singing technique. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and familiarity with different musical genres. Learning to sing can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, entering competitions or performing live. Students are advised to start their lessons no earlier that 12 years of age, as they have yet to reach vocal maturity.
