Singing lessons will focus on teaching students how to sing with good vocal technique and how to apply these techniques to the art of singing songs. Students will learn exercises and techniques that enable them to sing with a clear, balanced, well-pitched vocal tone, how to support the voice and how to increase their vocal range. Students will learn these techniques through vocalizing vowel sounds on different scales that vary in difficulty, learn how to tilt the thyroid cartilage in order to bridge into the head voice for range extension and how to reduce the use of the extrinsic muscles of the larynx to avoid constriction when ascending in pitch. Students can develop their performance techniques and song interpretation, and learn advanced techniques and exercises such as developing vibrato, rasp/distortion effects, messa di voce and vocal run and fills. Students can also be prepared for auditions, exams and gigs.
There are numerable reasons why adults may wish to start taking singing lessons. Singing is a highly enjoyable, fun and creative way to express yourself musically. Many students take lessons simply to improve their singing for fun or to take up a new hobby. Students who have specific goals in mind can also have lessons to achieve those aims. Often singers want to improve a particular aspect of their singing such as increasing their vocal range or learning to sing with vibrato or greater agility (runs, fills...). Singers who have a certain style of singing in mind can also learn the techniques behind a wide range of genres.
Learning to sing as a child is fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their ability to accurately recreate pitch, theory knowledge and singing technique. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and familiarity with different musical genres. Learning to sing can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, entering competitions or performing live. Students are advised to start their lessons no earlier that 12 years of age, as they have yet to reach vocal maturity.
