We send a child to a music school: what you need to know?

In the life of any parents, there comes a period when representatives of the younger generation of the family need to be identified in the world of various hobbies – dancing, sports, music. How nice to see how your child zealously extracts melodic harmonies from the instrument. It seems to us that this world is open only to the talented and gifted. But ask the average student in a music school: “How does the world of music seem to him?” Children’s answers will amaze you. Some will say that the music is beautiful and amazing, others will answer: “The music is good, but I will not send my own children to a music school.” Many “woeful disciples” did not finish their studies, and left this wonderful world of harmonies with negative impressions.

The process of breaking voice in boys includes three main stages: The pre-mutation period. This stage is manifested as the preparation of the body for the restructuring of the vocal apparatus. If we talk about a spoken voice, then there may be a breakdown of the voice, hoarseness, cough, an unpleasant “tickle”. The singing voice is more informative in this case: voice breakdowns when taking extreme notes of a young man’s range, discomfort in the larynx during vocal lessons, “dirty” intonation, and loss of voice also occurs.
