Your voice is the only instrument that functions best when your entire body functions properly. Improve your voice health when you take care of your body-™s health. That includes eating a nutritious diet that-™s filled with vegetables, fruit and produce. You-™ll also want to drink water instead of alcohol, sugary drinks or caffeine. Exercise plays an important role in your overall health too. Spend time each day exercising and working out. Daily, rest your body. Sleep well at night and don-™t over use your voice. By taking steps to ensure your body functions properly, you also help your voice function at its best.
One-on-one vocal lessons straight from the comfort of your own home are a great way to learn to how to sing. 90% of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, where students will work on technique and exercises. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
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.
Students studying voice for the first time as an adult can look forward to working on vocal exercises and breathing techniques which can help improve their range and tone. Adult students may be interested in studying primarily classical vocal technique, or they may want to focus on different styles like pop or jazz. Our instructors can help you reach your musical and stylistic goals!
Children who enjoy singing may benefit from voice lessons. Formal vocal training improves a child-™s singing ability and range. The ideal age to start voice lessons occurs sometime after age 11 or 12 and after a child reaches puberty. Vocal training before that age could damage or strain a child-™s voice. By waiting until puberty, children reduce their risk of suffering an injury, and they increase their chances of improved vocal performance. Many kids have fun singing, and they can receive all the benefits of voice lessons if they wait until they are physically mature enough.
