Let It Shine If Your Kid Has a Great Voice!

Helene Goldnadel observes from her experience that children love to sing - and when they do so they can often sing with a confidence and freedom that can fade as we grow older. It is very important to nurture these wonderful qualities from the start.

Singing lessons for children are designed to teach your child the skills needed to strengthen and control the voice, whilst remaining fun and enjoyable. The voice is still developing as we grow through our teenage years so finding suitable exercises is very important.

Lessons are combined with 'song practice.' This is where we finish the session with a song that is chosen by the student - we have many backing tracks available, from 'High School Musical' to 'Lilly Allen!'

Finding time in our busy schedules whilst making sure that our children are well supervised can be difficult. In my experience lessons work more effectively when taught in the comfort of your own home. This allows your child to learn within a relaxed and familiar environment.

Music happens to be one of those rare things which each and every child enjoys. Though most 5 year olds, 6 year olds, 8 year olds, etc. are at an age where they are too young to understand music theories or music appreciation, nevertheless, nearly all of them enjoy the 'sound' of music. This is something which is very important, and it is often a very decisive factor in a child pursuing music or developing a serious interest in music at a later stage.

Singing happens to be one aspect of music that most kids are introduced to in the early stages of school. A friendly-looking music teacher, whose slightly plump, with rimmed glasses that rest at the tip of her nose, sitting at the piano, teaching "Popeye the Sailorman" to a bunch of young enthusiastic kiddos, is a very common sight, and one which instantly brings a smile on the face of any bystander. Well, the liking for music (not to mention, the increasing influence of reality shows) has led to quite a few children developing a serious interest in music, and in particular, singing. Well, for all you kids and young children who wish to sing well, here are some singing tips for kids.

Singing Tips for Kids

Rather than enlisting any specific singing lessons for kids, Helene Goldnadel instead presents a few important, but often ignored kids singing tips. On that note, here are some singing tips and tricks by Helene Goldnadel that kids must make a 'note' of, if they are serious about pursuing singing.

First and foremost, learn to enjoy music, as this is something that is very, very important. You will automatically get better at music (this applies to both, singers as well as musicians) if you enjoy it genuinely, from within.

Pay attention to all that your music teacher says and teaches in school. Quite often, it is in school itself where the foundation of music is laid. Show keen interest in all that is taught in your school music sessions. If you develop a genuine interest in those music sessions, it will pave the way for better things to come.

Getting proper vocal training from a vocal trainer is very important for a singer. A vocal trainer is different from a music teacher, do not get confused between the two. A music teacher will teach you all about musical notations, musical notes, music styles, music theory, etc. while a vocal trainer on the other hand, will teach you about throat care, how to properly utilize your vocal chords while singing, how to modulate your voice, how to tackle high notes, etc. Vocal training is extremely important, as improper or incorrect singing techniques can seriously cause damage to your vocal chords both temporarily, as well as permanently.

Don't get carried away by what you see on television. Many a time, it so happens that kids think of taking up singing only because they see their favorite singers and pop stars performing on television; singing, dancing, and getting showered with lots of adulation from thousands of fans. Always remember, it takes years of practice, discipline and continuous hard work to reach that pedestal. Stardom doesn't happen overnight. You need to be sincere about singing and you should keep on practicing regularly. Do not be on the lookout for shortcuts, as there aren't any.
