Summer Music Tips

Have you or your child been playing and practicing regularly through the school year?  If so, fabulous!  Don’t let all those great skills deteriorate over the summer.  Even if you are going out of town this summer, it is important to keep practicing and keep up with your music lessons.  We can be flexible and work with you for scheduling during the summer months.  Let us know your schedule, and we’ll find time to fit in lessons while you’re in town.

Vocal Tip: Foods

Before singing you should avoid eating for at least 2 hours if possible.  In particular, there are certain kinds of foods that can irritate even the toughest songbird.  Citrus, dairy, chocolate, fatty foods and anything that is difficult to digest should be at the top of your “DO NOT EAT BEFORE SINGING” list.  If you (like the majority of everyone else in the world) happen to be even slightly sensitive to one or more of these types of food, you will have an raging river of thick mucous flowing that no amount of throat clearing will cure.

Rather, opt for a light snack and drink plenty of water until after your performance.  Your loyal vocal cords will thank you.
