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.
In home voice lessons are a convenient way to learn the art of singing! Our instructors are qualified to teach a variety of styles ranging from Opera to R&B. If you are interested in auditioning for local competitions or even reality tv shows like American Idol or The Voice, our instructors can definitely help you prepare. Most voice lesson music and materials can be purchased online or at a local music store.
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.

Singing for pleasure or as a profession is one fantasy many kids have. To be successful, they need voice lessons, but a child-™s voice isn-™t ready for vocal training until the child has reached puberty. At that time, the voice is mature enough to undergo regular singing, vocal exercises and other rigors associated with voice lessons. We recommend kids wait until they are at least 11 or 12 before they start voice lessons. Our instructors can then provide the personalized instruction your child needs while he or she pursues the possibility of a profession in voice performance.
