We believe that a child needs to be 9 years or older to begin to fully grasp vocal technique. Voice lessons can be taught to children as young as 6 years old, but they will be taught at an age appropriate level. We recommend our Musikgarten classes (provide live link for Musikgarten page) for children under 6 years old. Exposing children to live and recorded music of many styles and the study of an instrument such as the piano should be encouraged along with formal vocal training.
Anyone can be trained to sing, from young children to seniors! Learning to match pitch, breathe correctly, and sing properly can save a lot of time correcting bad habits at a later age.

Vocal study can be helpful in many different ways, from building self-confidence not only in singing and performing, but also in public speaking and self-expression!
