A study conducted by Chorus America1 showed that 57% of kids who sing got higher math scores, and about 70% experienced improved memory and self-confidence. Your teen doesn’t need to join a Glee-like chorus to experience these benefits. Singing solo, in a rock or country band, or studying opera will help any teen acquire more poise and confidence. The type of music performed or singing style doesn’t matter – just the act of using the voice and expressing the storyline or emotions of a song brings out a teen’s natural creativity and energy. Singing, like other creative arts, gives teens a positive outlet for their ideas and emotions.
Singing lessons improve teens’ health by teaching them to focus on breathing and slow down respiratory patterns. This makes their breathing deeper and increases the blood’s oxygen levels. Singing improves lung capacity and is linked to better posture, lower blood pressure and a stronger immune system.
Taking singing lessons, singing in a band, or even singing in the shower reduces stress and contributes to a better mood and increased focus. Teens have a lot to do, between school, homework, sports, friends and family, and it can sometimes get overwhelming. The positive effect singing has on brain wave patterns helps them to better handle these responsibilities.
Singing also releases hormones called endorphins into the body, boosting mood and self-confidence. Endorphins are the same hormones released when you run or exercise. Singing lessons often lead to teens forming bands or participating in recitals. This puts them in touch with other musical teens, often resulting in long-lasting friendships.
Teens learn how to use their voice correctly during singing lessons, and this helps them with more than making music. It gives them a stronger speaking voice for business presentations, speeches and everyday life. People are more apt to pay attention to confident individuals with strong speaking voices, and singing lessons contribute to the formation of these traits.
