There is no doubt about it, we are all born with an innate appreciation of music!
Babies respond to music in the womb, babble and dance to music within their first year and are often taught through song during school.
When should children begin singing lessons?
Children as young as 4 can benefit from voice lessons!
At this age the primary use of the voice changes from basic yelling, crying and babbling to words and longer sentences and the structures used for sound production change along with it, allowing children to learn a variety of skills such as posture, basic breath control, timing and pitch!
Singing lessons can also help develop communication skills, emotional awareness, self-perception, relaxation and social skills.
Children can be taught all of these skills and more in a fun voice lesson through movement, song and games! Check out Rachel Jane Vocal to learn more about singing lessons and book a trial for your little one today!
Is it too late to start singing lessons?
Never! Sure, over time we can build up habits that inhibit our vocal abilities but that's what singing lessons are for! Working with a vocal coach can help break down these habits to make way for new better ones. Voice lessons can be a brilliant outlet for stress, leading to improved mental health, help give your brain a workout by enhancing memory and creating new connections and has even been linked with boosting immunity and lung function! Singing is just as beneficial for adults as it is for children! Struggling to fit voice lessons into your schedule? Check out Rachel Jane Vocal for lessons that come to you!
