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 illegal 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.

During singing lessons, students of all abilities will learn and develop safe, effective vocal techniques that can be applied to a multitude of musical genres and styles. Students will learn how to properly warm their voices up by working through various exercises such as sirens, lip rolls and trills and vocalizing various vowel sounds along to different scales. Lessons will cover topics such as vocal physiology and how the voice works so that students understand what a particular exercise achieves. Students will learn how to increase and strengthen their vocal range by learning how to bridge and connect their voices through the vocal break or passagio and into the head voice. Students can also work on their tone and breath support, and start applying these various techniques to singing actual songs. Students will also learn things such as music theory, song interpretation and style development, and can prepare for gigs and auditions.

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.
