Keeping your voice healthy starts with keeping your entire body healthy. The voice is contained within the body, so following a balanced diet, getting adequate sleep, and reducing stress are all keys to keeping your body and voice healthy. Singers should avoid excess caffeine, smoking, consumption of alcohol and drugs. Excessive screaming, speaking, performing in loud or crowded places without proper amplification, and singing for a prolonged amount of time without rest should all be avoided. Singers should always stay hydrated by drinking purified water, and try to stay away from sugary drinks and colas.
Taking voice lessons in your home is a great way to enhance your musical skills without ever leaving your living room! As long as you have a piano or keyboard available, we can arrange for a teacher to come directly to you. Our professional teacher will help you learn the songs you want, and enhance your vocal skills, including the range and tone of your voice.
Voice lessons focus on development of vocal skills and breathing techniques. They also help you increase you voice-™s projection and range. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop. With help from Musika-™s trained instructors, learn how to read music and how to interpret lyrics and melodies with emotion during your auditions and performance. Other topics you-™ll learn include: How to enjoy music and express yourself with singing, Proper breath control, Vocal cord protection, Vocal projection techniques, How to improve vocal volume, How to read musical notations, Interpretation of various singing styles, including classical, jazz, country, pop, and opera, How to interpret songs, lyrics and phrases with the proper emotion, Performance techniques and tips, including how to manage stage fright.
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!
Your child may beg for voice lessons so he or she can sing like a professional, but waiting is the best option for your child-™s future musical career. Before puberty, the voice is not physically prepared for extended vocal training or performance. It could suffer damage or strain if you pursue children-™s voice lessons before your child is ready. Protect your child-™s vocal cords by starting voice lessons after he or she is 11 or 12 years old. You both will be glad you waited to give your child voice lessons after he or she matures.
