"One needs a voice teacher to learn singing technique, to solidify his singing foundation, and to add more delicate techniques as he continues his progress. Strengthening, training, and stamina-building are taught and drilled in the voice lessons. A voice teacher suggests and assigns repertoire; first, as a learning tool, later as a showcase to be added to the student's own portfolio."

Too young or too old?

Understand the difference

Pradichaya Poonyarit Voice Studio | Lehigh Valley, Easton, PA

Parents often ask me at what age their children should start taking voice lessons. Also, on occasion, people whom I meet at social gatherings say to me- after they realize what I do- that they enjoy singing, but feel they are too old to take voice lessons. This is usually accompanied by somewhat awkward laughter.

Usually, it's simple commonsense when it comes to the answer to the question of how young: Is your child old enough to say that he likes or dislike something? Does he love to sing? How is his reading? Is he capable of communicating verbally? Still, one may be surprised how eager some parents are. Obviously, if he's still a toddler in his diapers then he is not ready. The youngest age for students I accept is nine years-old, and not below that. However, it really depends on each child. Some of them, although young, show maturity- usually through their independence (the ability to think on their own), responsibility, and discipline.

As far as fully-grown adults are concerned, anyone can take voice lessons if they have the desire, the discipline, the ability to stay focused, and the time. No one is too old to learn. My adult students' ages range from the 20's to the 70's. An advantage they have over child students is that their voices are already mature, which helps them achieve their goals sooner. Naturally, though, there is always the other side of the coin; and, in this case, their fully developed voices and the adult's "been there, done that" attitude make it tougher for them to allow themselves to adjust their singing habits. However, the more open-minded, the more obtainable the outcome.

Nothing is set in stone, though. A prospective voice student should come in for an evaluation lesson so I can make observations and suggest the best possible approach for her voice study.
