There is one word you will consistently hear when taking singing lessons. That word is practice. After starting your singing lessons, practicing the exercises you are taught by your teacher is the most important thing for vocal development. Without practice, the hard work you do in your singing lessons is not likely to stick. Think about this- if Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas had practiced her routines, jumps, tucks, and flips only once a week, would she have won the Olympics? Of course not, she needed to practice every single day so that her muscles would grow and stay strong. Your vocal cords are muscles, and they work the same way as gymnasts’. In order to keep them strong and continue to grow, you have to practice every day or they will become weak, or never grow at all.
Practice Makes Perfect for Singing Lessons
Sometimes people resist practicing because they are afraid they will do it wrong, but your singing lessons will ease that fear. Your teacher will guide you on exactly how to practice and you will not have to worry about whether you are doing your exercises correctly. Once you start adding practice time into your everyday schedule, you may find that you look forward to that time as an outlet during the day or in the evenings. You may find that when you’re done practicing what you learn in your singing lessons, your stress levels have gone down. Problems of the day may just seem to be smaller than they were before your practice session. Making time for practice every single day not only results in muscle and vocal growth and development, but it adds something to your everyday life that is just for you, and brings a smile to your day.
