The safety of her instrument is being sorted by the identical otolaryngologist who handles elite opera stars in NYC, & will get voice teaching from individuals with operatic training Voice Over Agents, although not rigorous coaching because she's too younger for that-principally they make sure that she is not doing something to break her instrument or get dangerous habits that will impede coaching when it does begin.
With the piano and choir coaching, I used to be in a position to skip a pair semesters of music principle and aural skills in school! One different comment, in the singing schools of yore, singers had been skilled at barely youthful ages (starting in the mid-teenagers) however they lived with their voice teacher and had DAY BY DAY lessons, and thus weren't in a position to observe approach incorrectly and strictly supervised as to repetoire.
