In order to maximize your ability to sing, it is important to be conscious of how the voice works and ways in which to keep it healthy. The best ways to help prevent any vocal problems are through warming up properly before singing and to keep the voice hydrated by drinking room temperature water. Vocal problems often arise through poor singing technique, such as shouting or straining to sing higher notes. This causes vocal fatigue as the vocal folds become overwhelmed due to excessive air pressure passing through them. Avoid shouting and stop singing if there is constriction or tension in the throat.
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.

Children who enjoy singing may benefit from voice lessons. Formal vocal training improves a child-™s singing ability and range. The ideal age to start voice lessons occurs sometime after age 11 or 12 and after a child reaches puberty. Vocal training before that age could damage or strain a child-™s voice. By waiting until puberty, children reduce their risk of suffering an injury, and they increase their chances of improved vocal performance. Many kids have fun singing, and they can receive all the benefits of voice lessons if they wait until they are physically mature enough.
