Singing is a physical endeavor that requires effort, strength and coordination. The muscular of the voice is very delicate so it is important to sing using safe techniques. Forcing or pushing the voice is a common cause of vocal fatigue and should be avoided. Check for tension or constriction in the throat, as this is sign of bad technique. The extrinsic muscles of the voice (neck, jaw and cheeks) should be relaxed and there should be no discomfort of pain when sining. The best way to avoid vocal fatigue or injury is through warm ups, sleep and hydration
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.
Voice lessons focus on development of vocal skills and breathing techniques to help increase projection of the voice and improve the range of the voice. Students will learn how to read music and also learn to emotionally interpret lyrics and melodies during their performance. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles in your lessons ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop.

We strongly encourage students to start voice lessons at age 11 or 12. Training a voice that is younger than this can sometimes lead to future damage if the teacher is not specifically trained to teach younger students. As soon as a student begins the process of puberty and adolescence this would be a good time to begin vocal training. We also strongly encourage students who are younger than this age to start with another instrument like piano or guitar, because this will help them improve their basic musicianship skills before progressing to voice lessons.
