There are a number of things to consider for vocalists who wish to keep their voices healthy and in top shape. Firstly, there is no substitute for good vocal technique. Shouting, forcing, pushing and straining the voice represents bad technique and will likely lead to fatigue or injury. Developing a great singing voice requires strengthening and coordinating the small intrinsic muscles of the larynx, and largely de-activating the muscles that cause constriction and tension. This can be done through specific exercises target at developing the necessary coordinations and muscular strength. Warm ups and plenty of water should be taken before singing.

Musika vocal lessons will be based on teaching students good, safe vocal technique that can be applied to a wide range of musical genres and singing styles. Students of all abilities and experience will be catered for, as lessons are devised to suit the requirements of each individual student. Beginner students will work on their pitch, tone and vocal range by doing various different exercises such as sirens, singing different vowels along a scale and learning how to properly support the voice through breath management. These exercises are designed to build strength, timing and coordination in order to traverse the passagio, allowing students to sing notes in their head voice register, thus extending their range. Students can also develop their song interpretation skills, performance techniques and style development. As students advance, they can learn techniques and skills such as messa di voce, runs and fills, vibrato and genre-specific techniques like distortion in Rock singing or covering the voice for Musical Theatre or Classical singing.
Taking vocal lessons at any age can be highly rewarding and great fun. Students often take lessons with various aims and goals in mind. Some students want to learn how to increase their vocal range and will have lessons and exercises planned to achieve that particular goal. Some students would like to improve their singing ability in order to feel confident enough to audition for talent shows, competitions or to join a band or choir. It is quite common for students to take vocal lessons purely because they love to sing and want to improve for their own enjoyment.
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.
