Teen Singing Lessons
Benefits of singing lessons for teens
At Melbourne Voiceworks, we acknowledge the challenges teenagers face during the transitional period between childhood to adulthood, and have witnessed first hand the profound, positive influence music can have on teens. We seek to provide teens with a safe and nurturing environment with which to express themselves in a positive, creative and healthy manner, via the style of music most appeals to them.
Singing not only provides a positive platform for self-expression, it is also proven to reduce stress and anxiety, a prevalent issue amongst today’s teens.
Brain imaging studies show that involvement in the music we love has the capacity to stimulate the various neurochemicals in the brain responsible for promoting positive feelings. The act of singing is also shown to decrease levels of cortisol, promoting a more relaxed state of mind. Regardless of whether singing is pursued on a more serious level or purely as a hobby, singing can have a profound, positive influence on our mood and state of mind.
Teen lessons are tailored to meet the diverse needs of each individual. The pace of lessons is specific to each student, in keeping with the students schedule, lifestyle and goals.
At Melbourne Voiceworks we understand that students have multiple reasons for wanting to take singing lessons, and hence also have varying goals. Some teens have the desire to take lessons purely for enjoyment and as a hobby. Other students may be heavily involved in music and want to exponentially expand their vocal ability with a view toward further pursuing singing in the future and/or in a professional setting. Either way, lessons at Melbourne Voiceworks are customised to meet individual needs and assist students to see their goals into fruition.
Students will be guided through warm-ups, scales, technical exercises and theory/aural training (where applicable). We assist students in developing a broad range of music skills and kinesthetic awareness of vocal health techniques that support the longevity of the voice.
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!
