With a healthy voice, you sing clearly and stay on pitch. You keep your voice healthy when you take care of your entire body. That means getting enough sleep every night and reducing stress. You also must eat a balanced diet that limits sugars and is rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Choose water instead of caffeinated or sugary drinks. Additionally, quit smoking. It harms your vocal cords, but aerobic exercises strengthen your lungs and voice. Finally, rest your voice. Don-™t yell, scream or cheer, and try to sing for limited rather than unlimited times. With these tips, your voice remains strong and healthy.
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.

Our lessons for adults are focused around teaching vocal technique with the specific aims of the student in mind. Many adults are just looking to improve their singing for their own enjoyment.We also teach students who are auditioning for talent shows such as American Idol, or who are preparing for exams, recording sessions or gigs. Adult students may want an honest, professional assessment of their voices, as family or friends - well-meaning as they may be - are often not an object judge. Learning to sing can be a good boost to confidence, develop all-round musicianship and is open to adults of all ages.
Students can have fun learning how to sing from as young as 11 or 12 years old. As students of this age are approaching puberty, their voices are not fully matured, so care must be taken not to place too much pressure or strain on the voice for fear of risking injury. That said, through lessons and practice, students can learn safe vocal techniques, how to look after their voices, develop their ability to hear and recreate pitch and work on their musical theory. Students can also improve their concentration levels, confidence and self-esteem.
