How great are the kids on shows like America’s Got Talent or American Idol, who can sing, dance and entertain at such a young age? Pretty impressive, aren’t they? And what makes them so impressive? Only talent? No, not really. While talent is never a bad quality to have, regular coaching and meticulous practice are the real contributors to success. The sooner you start, the longer you have to practice and perfect yourself. Fox Music of Virginia Beach provides group voice lessons for children of Virginia Beach and Hampton Road, in an attempt to provide them an early start. The lessons are open for children aged six and above. Voice lessons and holistic development It is not uncommon to find parents who enroll children for voice lessons with the aim of performing in talent shows. And while the idea may sound lucrative, may we point out other benefits of voice lessons? Voice lessons are a great way of introducing children to vocal instructions. Voice lessons help children understand how to expand vocal range, prevent vocal chords from damage and perform deep breathing exercises. At Fox Music of Virginia Beach, we begin with voice-building drills aimed at helping children exercise their vocal chords correctly. Children are given lessons in a group setting to build their social skills. They learn the importance of companionship and team building. After the introductory voice-building exercises, they are taught songs and the techniques of singing together as a group. This helps the shy children overcome their nervousness of expressing themselves in front of others. We start from group lessons to help children overcome their shyness. Once they are comfortable with singing in the group, each child is encouraged to take the stage as a solo performer. Our teachers go the extra mile to ensure their lessons remain full filled and pressure free.
