Singing is so amazing, I wish everyone could do it. The reality is, many more can do it than think they can. It is actually a very small percentage of the population that is tone deaf. Most people can hear the melody of a song, and even repeat part of it. For anyone wanting to pursue a little of this singing passion, in home voice lessons in Miami are the way to go!
The Popularity of Singing
The Voice, American Idol, The Next Country Music Star, even America’s Got Talent are all hot shows that feature vocalists. Singing has an ability to capture the audience like nothing else can do! Singing has been around since the beginning of, at least the beginning of what we see, recorded in history. Singing was the way actual history WAS passed down in former times. I believe it is impossible to overstate the importance singing and music has had on our world. Almost every night you turn on the TV, you will see someone singing. How about the opening of so many shows that aren’t about music at all-I bet you can sing many of the lyrics to the opening song!
Taking Voice Lessons
Online music lessons can do so much to help a student at any level with their singing. If your student is in school and has an interest, go for it. A good voice teacher will be crucial in keeping a student where they should be in voice. If you are an adult who is interested, it is never too late! The voice is something that has so many layers and nuances that a great voice teacher will help you reach the potential you have.
Vocal Things to Think About
Breathing is fundamental! Just like a houses’ foundation, breathing is the foundation of the voice. We all were taught very poor breathing habits as young adults. The filling of the diaphragm so that all lung space is taken up with air, is a learned skill. An in home voice teacher will be essential in teaching this and breaking any bad habits that have naturally formed in individuals. There are so many great exercises and techniques that help correct problems, and also help expand the breath capacity of an individual. It will make the difference between a supported sound and a thin, whispery sound. Most importantly, it will be the basis for proper singing that is healthy and not damaging to the vocal chords. Leading to another point.
Proper Voice Placement
A good voice teacher will work with the student to bring about a proper placement of the voice. This in turn will produce the best sound, and keep the vocal chords stretched as they should be and not improperly strained. An in home voice teacher will help a student by seeing and hearing what the student is doing and correct any wrong technique. Many a famous singer has appeared on a talk show with a raspy, barely there voice. The shouting of some singers is what might possibly lead to this condition and can have serious consequences. A voice teacher hears these things in their students’ singing and is quick to correct it and make sure the voice develops in the correct way. The vocal chords have a way to produce sound that is healthy, and that is what a good in home voice teacher is looking for.
Phrasing and musicality also come into play during voice lessons. A good teacher also covers this area with their students. We are usually singing in order to communicate something with somebody. The possibilities of this are limitless. People have a lot to say! It’s a great thing when they can say it through the wonderful world of music. Singing expresses so much. An in home voice teacher helps a student to see where the music goes, and then communicate it effectively.
It is hard for me to stress enough the importance of a voice teacher. There is no instrument so expressive, in my opinion, as the voice. It is something to be cherished and taken care of. Used properly, and voice can last for most of a lifetime. Contact us and have an in home voice teacher help you gain the tools you need to make the most of your voice!
