To protect your voice and keep it healthy, protect your body. You-™ll want to start by getting enough rest. Rest your body by going to bed on time every night, and rest your voice by limiting the amount of singing and yelling you do. Next, eat a balanced diet. Vegetables, fruits and whole grains fuel your body and improve your voice. Then exercise. Aerobic exercise is especially important because it improves your lung capacity and helps your body fight illness. Finally, stop smoking. This habit damages your voice and your lungs. With a focus on protecting your body, you also protect your voice and keep it healthy and strong.

During their lessons, students will learn how to sing with good, safe and effective vocal technique. Learning to sing with good technique is the cornerstone to improving the tone, range and health of the voice during singing. Students will learn how to warm up properly, how to increase their vocal range, how to improve and strengthen their tone, performance techniques, how to accurately replicate pitch, how to support their singing with good breathing techniques, song interpretation and how to apply these techniques to singing their favourite songs. Vocal technique is not genre specific - the techniques taught can be applied to almost any genre of music. Students will develop these skills by vocalizing to piano scales. These vocal exercises are things such as; singing different vowel sounds on different scales, sirens, lip rolls and trills, articulation exercises and respiratory exercises. The exercises are tailored to the specific needs and ability levels of each individual student.
Adults of all ages and abilities are welcome to start taking singing lessons. Learning to sing is a great way to develop your musicianship, confidence and self-esteem, and is a fun and rewarding skill to learn. Students who have specific goals in mind such as range extension, learning to correct pitch problems or to correct bad vocal habits and technique, can achieve these goals with our expert vocal coaches. Many students just want to learn to sing for their own enjoyment and love of singing, or would like to join and a band or singing group. All lessons are customized with these goals in mind.
Singing for pleasure or as a profession is one fantasy many kids have. To be successful, they need voice lessons, but a child-™s voice isn-™t ready for vocal training until the child has reached puberty. At that time, the voice is mature enough to undergo regular singing, vocal exercises and other rigors associated with voice lessons. We recommend kids wait until they are at least 11 or 12 before they start voice lessons. Our instructors can then provide the personalized instruction your child needs while he or she pursues the possibility of a profession in voice performance.
