Learning to sing using the correct techniques and coordinations is the most important element to maintaining vocal health and limiting the risk of injury. A common issue with untrained singers is shouting, forcing or pushing the voice when trying to sing high notes. This places great strain on the voice, causing vocal fatigue, and should therefore be avoided. The vocal folds can also become irritated by mucus derived from allergies or illness, so it is important to rest the voice well through plenty of sleep and maintain vocal hydration by drinking water. Before singing, a good vocal warm up should always be completed in order to prepare the voice
Taking vocal lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning how to sing with good technique. Finding the additional time out of a busy schedule to transport your child to and from their lessons can be difficult, making home lessons a convenient, time and money saving option. The only thing necessary for home lessons is a quiet room in which to sing! There is no difference between the lesson content of studio or home lessons - only the location is different. Home lessons help provide a safe, familiar and comfortable learning environment for students.
Singing lessons will focus on teaching students how to sing with good vocal technique and how to apply these techniques to the art of singing songs. Students will learn exercises and techniques that enable them to sing with a clear, balanced, well-pitched vocal tone, how to support the voice and how to increase their vocal range. Students will learn these techniques through vocalizing vowel sounds on different scales that vary in difficulty, learn how to tilt the thyroid cartilage in order to bridge into the head voice for range extension and how to reduce the use of the extrinsic muscles of the larynx to avoid constriction when ascending in pitch. Students can develop their performance techniques and song interpretation, and learn advanced techniques and exercises such as developing vibrato, rasp/distortion effects, messa di voce and vocal run and fills. Students can also be prepared for auditions, exams and gigs.

Taking singing lessons at an early age can be a great advantage in the vocal development of students. Young students can get a head start in their singing abilities as they will learn from an early age how to hear and recreate pitch, work on their timing, start to build strength and coordination in their singing, develop a good understanding of how the voice works and music theory and can be exposed to a variety of styles and musical genres. We recommend that students take lessons from about the age of 11 or 12, as not to place too much pressure and strain on their voices before they have fully matured.
