The voice is the only instrument which actively requires the use of your entire body for its function. This is why maintaining the health of your body in general is crucial to maintaining the health of your voice. Smoking, excessive drinking of alcohol, caffeine, and the use of illeagal drugs or certain medications is strongly discouraged. Singers are encouraged to drink room temperature water to promote the hydration of their vocal chords. Excessive screaming, loud singing, or singing for long amounts of time without a rest can cause damage to your voice, and should be avoided. It is important to eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to keep your whole body and voice healthy. Daily exercise is strongly encouraged, especially activities that require the use of your lungs such as swimming, running, cycling, or aerobics classes, all of which will increase your breath control capacity when singing.
Voice lessons in your home offer a convenient and practical way to master the art of singing. Voice lessons in your home require a piano or keyboard so that the teacher can use that to conduct your lessons. Whether you want to learn classical voice, jazz, pop, or musical theatre styles, our instructors can provide you instruction on what songs would suit your voice best.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student, so no two students' lesson plans will be identical. Topics covered during Musika's voice lessons may include, but are not limited to: proper breath control technique and how to support your voice, how to read music, how to interpret various styles of singing (classical, jazz, pop, etc.), performance tips and techniques, how to overcome stage fright, and most importantly, learning to enjoy music and express yourself through singing!
Starting vocal lessons is a great way to realize your singing dreams. Many people aspire to be a performing artist or professional singer, so learning the vocal techniques necessary to reach such standards will require expert tutoring from an experienced teacher. Whilst lessons can be customized to meet the goals of those who want to prepare for auditions, learn specific techniques such as vibrato, extending the vocal range or improving pitch and developing their performance skills, some students may wish to simply learn to sing for fun. Whatever the goal, learning to sing is fun, creative and rewarding.
Children who want to take voice lessons should wait until they-™re at least 11 or 12 years old. At that time, their voice is maturing, and they are emotionally ready to practice regularly and apply themselves. Starting voice lessons before puberty could cause vocal cord damage and strain. That damage potentially jeopardizes future vocal performances. By waiting a few years, children protect their voice. Then they can start lessons and prepare to audition for local, regional and national competitions or performances in their teen and adult years.
