Invest in your body to maintain your healthy voice. That might sound strange, but a healthy voice requires a healthy body. Your investment starts with a diet that-™s rich in vegetable, fruits, whole grains and water. You-™ll want to limit sweets and preservatives. Next, stop smoking, limit alcohol and avoid illegal drugs. They damage your body and your voice. Every day, exercise. Improved health and fitness improves your ability to fight illness and project your voice. Finally, rest. Go to bed on time at night, and avoid yelling, cheering or singing for extended times. With a healthy body, you maintain a healthy voice.

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.
Learning how to sing can be highly rewarding, enjoyable and carries many other benefits. Learning correct vocal technique and singing can keep your voice healthy, relieve stress (music theory) and have positive social impacts - such as joining a choir group, band or participating in karaoke nights! Taking lessons with our experienced teachers can also be beneficial for those who would like a professional, objective assessment of their voices or for those who would like to learn or work on a specific vocal technique. Students can also be prepared for exams, gigs and auditions.
For children who want to learn how to sing, we recommend beginning voice lessons at age 11 or 12. The vocal instrument, unlike other instruments, is attached to the body. Starting voice lessons too young, or when the student is not emotionally ready or mature, can lead to vocal damage or strain. Many of our instructors are capable of working with younger students under the recommended age, but it is our opinion, and the opinion of many other Vocal Education professionals, that the student should wait until their body has begun the process of puberty before beginning voice lessons.
