25 Sep 3 Reasons Non-Singers Should Take Voice Lessons
Think singing lessons are only for the young or those who have dreams of stardom? Think again! Our wonderful vocal students at The Music Junction run the gamut of ages and interests because they know the benefits of voice lessons extend beyond the microphone.
Here are a few examples of how voice lessons can enhance your life:
1. Public Speaking – Singers who take lessons from a professional instructor learn proper posture as well as breathing techniques that enable them project to their voice and present themselves with confidence. These skills not only benefit singers and actors but a wide variety of careers. If you talk a lot in your job — such as a doctor, teacher, or yoga instructor — you could benefit from strengthening your vocal folds. Or, if your career ambitions include being a manager or executive who leads meetings and inspires workers, you may also benefit from singing lessons.
2. Lower Stress – As strange as it may sound, singing has a calming effect that has been scientifically proven to be equal to practicing yoga.
A team of researchers led by Dr. Bjron Vickhoff of the University of Gothenburg, Sweden led the study and explained why:
“Song is a form of regular, controlled breathing, since breathing out occurs on the song phrases and inhaling takes place between these. It gives you pretty much the same effect as yoga breathing. It helps you relax, and there are indications that it does provide a heart benefit.”
There’s even a subset of yoga that incorporates singing into the yoga moves, which is a hard for us to imagine but we’d love to try it one day.
3. Confidence – Tired of avoiding karaoke night or confining your singing to the shower or the car? At The Music Junction, we are firm believers that anyone can sing. It just takes time, practice and the willingness to break out of your comfort zone. Imagine how differently you’ll think of yourself after conquering this fear.
