So what are the benefits that everyone should consider about voice lessons? Here are a few to think about.
1. Voice lessons can boost your confidence in the daily use of your voice for speaking
For those who speak publicly; such as teachers, pastors, business leaders, community leaders, etc.; vocal training can help them to develop power and projection needed to communicate to an audience. For others who use their voice as a tool for work every day in live presentations, phone conversations, web conferences and more, vocal training can help them to use their voice to maximum effect. As a music major in college with a minor in speech communications, I was able to see how the two arts of singing and speaking were inextricably linked.
2. Voice lessons can improve your overall vocal health
As a voice teacher, part of what I teach my students is to treat their voices well, so that they can continue singing through their whole lives. Good habits required of a voice student are the same habits everyone should implement to maintain good vocal health. Some of these are things we know are right, but don't always follow, such as: drinking plenty of water, not using the voice for screaming or yelling, and getting enough sleep every night. Also, the vocal exercises used to both relax and strengthen the voice of the student are beneficial in reducing the strain of daily use for non-musical tasks.
3. Singing brings personal enjoyment
As you consider some of the benefits of vocal training, of which I have only mentioned three, consider getting some voice lessons yourself. Try it, you may like it!
