Frequenty Asked Questions
Yes! When they are properly designed for Kids. Kids who love to sing are going to sing no matter what, and it’s common for them to try and recreate sounds they hear on the radio – which can “push” or strain their vocal mechanisms.
A child’s voice is much different than an adult’s and takes many years to develop into what we think of as an “adult sound”. And that is how it should be. No child, or person, should ever push their voice. So it is important to limit a child’s vocal development to a healthy use of their own “natural sound”. Proper vocal instruction that is geared toward a child’s capabilities is vital for developing good vocal habits early on that will not damage their developing voices.
Many 4-year-olds love to sing, but they likely lack the focus for formal voice lessons. However, it’s not too early to begin teaching your child musical concepts that will be important once they are old enough for singing instruction at Save The Musicals. Your 4-year-old can participate in the kids music program to learn fundamental concepts through fun, dynamic musical activities.
Practice is key, whether you are learning an instrument or developing a young voice. With steady practice and a good attitude, our singing lessons for kids can have your child singing with confidence in as little as 6 months. Some students reach the level of advanced singers in as few as 3-5 years, but results do vary from student to student.
One way to get your child to practice singing more is to inspire them every day. Start practices off with small increments of time, and, as their skill level builds, gradually increase the time spent practicing.
The bottom line is that it’s not the songs you practice, but just that you or your kid spends time learning to sing. To see the best results, our singing instructors recommend that students spend at least 30 minutes practicing to sing every day.
Singing can be a surprisingly straining physical activity. A quick vocal warm-up can keep your voice healthy and make you sound great. We also recommend that you properly hydrate and refrain from smoking.
If your child loves to sing, you probably knew it before they could talk. With persistence and motivation, some kids have learned to sing and perform at impressively young ages, but what it really comes down to is the individual attitude and maturity level of the student.
