Maintaining good vocal health is crucial for people wanting to learn how to sing. Misuse of voice can lead to vocal problems that can either prevent students from fulfilling their potential or irreparably damage the voice. There are several simple methods for helping to maintain good vocal health. It is important to remain hydrated by drinking plenty of water, as this will stop the voice drying out, which can irritate the vocal folds and cause soreness and discomfort. It is also important to properly warm up the voice before or at the start of lessons, practice or a performance.
Mastering the art of singing can be a long and strenuous process, but taking lessons in your home offers a very convenient way to learn! The in-home lessons require a piano or keyboard for the teacher to lead your lessons on, as well as an open mind! Adult voice lessons will be tailored to your own individual needs and musical styles.
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!
Adults start taking singing lessons for a variety of reasons. Some students maybe sang in their younger days such as their school choir or high school band and want to start singing again, others aspire to become a recording artist and some want to prepare themselves for auditions such as The X-Factor, American Idol or The Voice. Advanced students may want to work on a specific technique such as building strength in the head voice or improving their support and breath management. Singing is a great way to express yourself creatively and can also develop confidence and self-esteem in students of all ages and abilities.
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.
