The health of your voice requires the health of your entire body to be at its best form. Many voice professionals advise that students drink adequate water, get enough rest, avoid stress, and exercise regularly. Singers are advised to not talk or scream at excessive levels on the days of performances, and to also avoid overuse of alcohol or antihistamines as they can dry out your vocal folds and make singing efficiently more difficult.
One-on-one vocal lessons straight from the comfort of your own home are a great way to learn to how to sing. 90% of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, where students will work on technique and exercises. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
Voice lessons focus on developing performing techniques, vocal techniques and how to support your voice properly for singing. You will learn how to read and interpret music, how to bring your own emotions to your performances, and how to enhance the quality of your singing in preparation for auditions.

Your singing will improve, and you will feel more confident when you take adult voice lessons.
Age 11 or 12 is the best time to begin voice lessons. When a student starts to mature emotionally and physically during adolescence, this is the appropriate time to begin lessons on vocal technique. Starting voice lessons younger than age 12 can be very demanding on an untrained voice and can cause damage if the student is not vocally ready. Students that have studied another instrument previously, before starting voice, are also at a distinct advantage, because they will know how to read music already and will be able to learn music at a faster pace.
