The art of singing is a physical endeavor that requires fine muscular strength and coordination of the voice and respiratory mechanisms. As such, a good warm up is essential before a performance or at the start of a lesson or practice session, and will help to prevent injury. The vocal folds are very delicate and can be easily damaged through misuse, such as bad technique or shouting, or overuse, such as practicing for too long or generally using the voice for long periods at a time (such as public speaking), which can cause vocal fatigue. It is important to maintain good hydration levels and get plenty of sleep for vocal recovery.
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.
Students will learn and develop good, safe and modern vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The aim is to get students to be able to sing without strain, discomfort of constriction, throughout the whole of their range, in key and in a clean, full sounding tone - and then apply these techniques to singing songs or various genres. Students will learn how to bridge and connect their vocal registers in order to expand their vocal range, add vibrato to their singing and learn how to properly support the voice in order to sing long passages and create a strong, full sounding vocal tone. Our teachers can also help students who have tuning problems by conducting exercises that work on their pitch. Lessons will also cover musical theory, performance tips and vocal effects, such as safe vibrato and developing vocal agility through runs and fills. Students can also learn music theory and vocal physiology.

For a child, learning to sing is fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Students can improve their concentration levels, raise their self-esteem and confidence, develop a positive, hard-working attitude as well as a habit of self-discipline through regular practice and lessons. Learning to sing from a young age will give students a great vocal foundation from which to build when their voices are fully developed. Students can also learn to sing on pitch from a young age, as well as learn the correct breathing techniques, vocal agility and basic theoretical knowledge.
