Music Education For Parents: What Caruso And Celine Dion Learned From Their Voice Teacher

Author : Tatiana Bandurina

If you have a young musical talent in your family waiting to bloom, give him all the care he needs for his fragile voice with help from a voice teacher. Here is how to take care of his voice and develop it.

First of all, understand that voice is a beautiful instrument we have been given by Nature. To play it in the best possible way, i.e. to sing beautifully, your child and you will need to take a lot of efforts to learn to play it.

Secondly, understand that vocal chords are muscles like any other muscle, as a voice teacher will explain to you. That's why you need to exercise them regularly through special training so that they remain strong and flexible.

Lastly, understand that young vocalists need to be trained under special rules which you as parents should know like the back of your hand.

The first recommendation for young singing children from a voice teacher is: take care of your health, especially vocal chords. Boys should not be allowed to shout at the top of their voices during active games and girls too should not be allowed to squeal at any time. Be alert, dear parents!

You may have seen a voice teacher telling his student to warm up his vocal chords before a performance. This is important for making them flexible and pliable so that they can be manipulated well.

If you don't know how to make your child warm up his vocal chords, don't worry; simply ask him to sing anything he likes. Children sometimes are not in the mood to sing. In such a situation, use the trick that a voice teacher will always employ:

If your child is reluctant to practice and keep his vocal chords in good condition, just start chatting about anything that he loves chatting about. Just make sure he doesn't stop talking!

Why is this necessary? It is because active conversation awakens the voice. You heard right. The voice too needs to be awakened just like the body.

And now here is the most important recommendation from a voice teacher: any child who is good at singing and has great potential should see a phoniatrist - the special voice doctor - every six months. When he nears puberty, this frequency should double - visit every three months.

And this is surely not the complete list of recommendations and instructions for the singing child!
