Benefits of singing lessons for teens
At Melbourne Voiceworks, we continually witness first-hand the profound, positive influence music has on teens. We strive to provide teens with a safe and nurturing environment with which to express themselves in a positive, creative and healthy manner, through the style of music that most appeals to them. Singing not only provides a positive platform for self-expression, but it is also proven to reduce stress and anxiety, a prevalent issue amongst today’s teens.
Brain imaging studies conclude that our involvement in the music we love, has the capacity to fire up the various neurochemicals in the brain responsible for promoting positive feelings. Similar to the benefits of going for a walk or exercising, singing has been proven to release endorphins (the feel good chemical) and decrease levels of cortisol (the stress hormone), promoting a more relaxed state. Regardless of whether singing is pursued on a serious level or purely as a hobby, singing has the capacity to profoundly and positively affect our mood and state of mind.
Aside from singing being a fabulous stress buster, singing is a great platform for growing confidence and self-esteem. Something that is vital for young people transitioning from childhood to adulthood, as they begin to cement their view of themselves in relation to the world around them.
Lessons are carefully considered to meet the diverse needs of each teenager. They are structured in such a way to compliment the students schedule, lifestyle, goals, and pace of learning appropriate to the them.
The staff at Melbourne Voiceworks acknowledge that students have multiple reasons for wanting to take singing lessons, all of which are valid. Some will desire to take singing lessons for recreational purposes, some will gravitate to it as a form of self-expression, and some will aspire to pursue singing in a professional setting. Either way, Melbourne Voiceworks is passionate about keeping teens inspired, aligning them with their goals and assisting them in every way possible to see their goals into fruition.
Students will be guided through relevant warm-ups, scales, technical exercises applicable to them, and theory/aural training (where applicable). Our team of highly-qualified vocal specialists are trained to assist with a broad range of skills and will provide the necessary guidance for students to leverage their full potential and get to where they want to be.
Building Confidence & Self-Esteem
Developing a skill or set of skills gives us a wonderful sense of achievement. With regular lessons, students begin to see their progress, which ultimately results in a sense of accomplishment and assists in elevating confidence.
At Melbourne Voiceworks we encourage students to be kind and patient with themselves throughout the learning process. In a world where we often fear ‘getting it wrong’, we work with students to encourage the use of positive self-talk throughout lessons and help students to embrace fearless exploration of their voice.
Above all, lessons are designed to be fun!
