The art of singing is a physical endeavor that requires fine muscular strength and coordination of the voice and respiratory mechanisms. As such, a good warm up is essential before a performance or at the start of a lesson or practice session, and will help to prevent injury. The vocal folds are very delicate and can be easily damaged through misuse, such as bad technique or shouting, or overuse, such as practicing for too long or generally using the voice for long periods at a time (such as public speaking), which can cause vocal fatigue. It is important to maintain good hydration levels and get plenty of sleep for vocal recovery.

During singing lessons, students of all abilities will learn and develop safe, effective vocal techniques that can be applied to a multitude of musical genres and styles. Students will learn how to properly warm their voices up by working through various exercises such as sirens, lip rolls and trills and vocalizing various vowel sounds along to different scales. Lessons will cover topics such as vocal physiology and how the voice works so that students understand what a particular exercise achieves. Students will learn how to increase and strengthen their vocal range by learning how to bridge and connect their voices through the vocal break or passagio and into the head voice. Students can also work on their tone and breath support, and start applying these various techniques to singing actual songs. Students will also learn things such as music theory, song interpretation and style development, and can prepare for gigs and auditions.

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.
