Taking Voice Lessons Increases Confidence

Taking voice lessons at a young age can help a student feel more comfortable. By simply interacting in a safe space with a teacher in a creative subject, your child will become more confident and be able to try new things with less fear. Singing is a very expressive thing and your child’s ability to be comfortable expressing themselves through music is like a jump start to developing great communication skills.

Voice Lessons Can Help With Public Speaking Skills

Does your child have stage fright? Do they feel uncomfortable giving presentations? Is their posture not as great as it could be? Singing lessons at a young age can help with all of these things.

Even better, when you have a teacher who really understands the journey from your first notes to your first performance and everything in between, they’ll be able to help your child through each step of the singing process. Singing lessons have been linked to developing a stronger vocal presence in and out of music.

Some kids sing before they talk, that’s how powerful music is. When a child makes sound, for any reason, they’re most likely trying to communicate with you

Singing Is a Way to Express Your Feelings

We have an entire medical study talking about how important it is for children to be able to express their emotions as they grow in school age – and you know what a great way to express your emotions is? Singing!

Children who sing discover emotions through the pure passion of their ear. Since they haven’t developed many biases to music in their young years, they’re more open to different genres that often elicit different emotions. Your child can discover how to communicate their feelings in a safe way with a teacher that will guide them to success in vocal talent and vocal expression.

Singing Helps Develop Children’s Brains

Some kids sing before they talk, that’s how powerful music is. When a child makes sound, for any reason, they’re most likely trying to communicate with you.

Developing brains in children are ready to absorb everything around them and music is something that, when absorbed, improves communication, fine motor functions, linguistic skills, and, as we talked about before, emotional literacy.

Finding passion in the arts can often be life-changing for children because of these developmental memories forming along with their interests. Once music and singing is linked to their brain, it will benefit them for the rest of their lives.

It’s never too late to start singing or learning music, and the brain benefits of learning music theory stretch across every age group too

Voice Lessons Help You Learn To Read Music

Reading music is a great skill to have for children as it helps develop key cognitive functions and strengthens neural pathways. In the famous 1993 study on music and IQ, it was proven that students did better on spatial reasoning tests and their IQ’s were higher after listening to Mozart, but music isn’t just Mozart. Music is what you hear on the radio, what you make with your friends, and what you consume in places like the grocery store or a restaurant.

By developing an understanding of how music works in theory and in practice, students are essentially learning another language through their voice lessons. Musical training in any regard helps executive functioning, problem solving, and reasoning. Taking voice or music lessons will help strengthen this in any child if they start early enough.
