The voice is the only instrument which actively requires the use of your entire body for its function. This is why maintaining the health of your body in general is crucial to maintaining the health of your voice. Smoking, excessive drinking of alcohol, caffeine, and the use of illeagal drugs or certain medications is strongly discouraged. Singers are encouraged to drink room temperature water to promote the hydration of their vocal chords. Excessive screaming, loud singing, or singing for long amounts of time without a rest can cause damage to your voice, and should be avoided. It is important to eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to keep your whole body and voice healthy. Daily exercise is strongly encouraged, especially activities that require the use of your lungs such as swimming, running, cycling, or aerobics classes, all of which will increase your breath control capacity when singing.

Adult students often have a specific singing goal in mind when starting their lessons. For example, many singers who enjoy rock music want to increase their vocal ranges so they can sing along on pitch with their favourite vocalists. Increasing the range of the voice requires a few fairly simple techniques, but they take time to master and apply to songs. Other students may want to learn to sing just for fun, to join a band or to prepare for auditions, such as The X Factor, The Voice, American Idol or a music college.
Before age 11 or 12, a child-™s voice is under development. He or she may want to sing in a local competition or national audition, but the vocal cords are not yet mature enough to handle intense musical training. Lessons for kids should start after they begin puberty, when they are physically and emotionally mature. Otherwise, your child-™s voice could be damaged or strained. To protect your child-™s voice for future musical performances, wait until they start puberty. Then begin voice lessons that train your child for singing competitions, auditions and recreation.
