Are Voice Lessons Helpful for ADHD?

Nov 4 · 4 min read

I'm a singer and I have ADHD. It's not something I talk about often, because society has this idea that people with ADHD are all hyperactive, disruptive, and unfocused. And while it can be true that people with ADHD tend to be more restless than their peers—especially when they're young—these days there's no reason why someone with the condition can't also be an artist or performer. Still, many people don't realize how much singing is good for them.

A person with ADHD can feel lonely and isolated because of their condition. Getting involved with music can help to ease that.

When someone has ADHD, they may feel like they’re all alone in their struggles. It’s difficult to explain what it feels like when your brain gets stuck on a thought or task and you can’t even get up from your chair to go do something else. You try to say what you want, but the words just won't come out of mouth. If this sounds familiar, you're not alone — many people with ADHD have these kinds of experiences.

People living with any condition can feel isolated and lonely at times, as well as frustrated that others don't understand what it's like for them (and sometimes aren't even aware that there is anything different about how they think or act). As someone who has ADHD himself once said: "People look at me and see a smart guy with high energy levels. They don't see how much work I put into getting things accomplished."

Singing lessons can help manage some of the symptoms of ADHD.

Singing lessons, like many forms of music therapy, can help people with ADHD develop a sense of structure. When you sing or play an instrument, there are certain rules and guidelines to follow. These include rhythm, pitch and melody—all things that are very important in creating music but also need attention and focus to be successful in following those rules. Developing these skills can translate into other areas of life as well—for example, when someone pays attention during a lecture rather than daydreaming about what they'll have for lunch later on (which is something I used to do all the time). This kind of focus helps people who struggle with paying attention at school or work because they're able to stay focused on whatever task is at hand instead of letting their minds wander elsewhere (like Facebook).

Voice training helps improve concentration, which is something that many people with ADHD struggle with.

Singing lessons can help people with ADHD focus. Because singing requires a great deal of concentration, it teaches the student how to focus on one thing and stay on task. This is an important skill for someone with ADHD because they are often easily distracted by other things going on around them, which makes it difficult for them to complete tasks or projects.

Singing lessons teach structure and discipline. When you're taking voice lessons, you will have a set schedule that follows your vocal health plan; this helps people with ADHD develop habits and routines that they can stick to throughout their day-to-day activities (instead of having chronic procrastination problems).

Singing lessons reduce stress levels in people who suffer from this mental disorder because singing releases endorphins into your bloodstream—the same hormones released during exercise—which helps reduce tension levels overall! So if someone has been feeling tired lately due to stress levels from work demands then perhaps taking up some kind of hobby such as music might be something worth considering doing next time instead?

When you learn about pitch, rhythm and melody, you develop a sense of structure, which is also helpful for people with ADHD.

It's not just the singing that helps. The lessons themselves are an excellent way to develop focus and attention in children and adults alike. In fact, there are many studies that show how effective singing lessons are at treating ADHD symptoms in children.

When your child learns how to sing with other students their age, they get more practice at controlling their impulses when it comes time for group activities like games or performances (which can be difficult for those with ADHD).

Singing lessons help with memory because songs have certain patterns that require repetition—this trains the brain’s ability to memorize information better!

Singing itself has been proven as a relaxation tool in the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), depression, anxiety disorders including PTSD/PPDRDS; chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome (FMS). Studies show its effectiveness as stress relief as well!

As an example, singing is good for your mental health. It helps you relax, focus and concentrate, be more social and confident in yourself. For those with ADHD, singing can be especially beneficial. In fact, it has been proven that people who take voice lessons have better self-esteem and are more confident than those who don’t sing.[1] This is probably because when you practice singing regularly you learn how to control your breathing and posture which will help improve performance anxiety.[2]

So, while it’s still early days in terms of research on this topic and we can’t say with certainty that singing lessons are a cure-all for ADHD, there is enough evidence to suggest that they may be helpful. For anyone struggling with their condition, learning about pitch and rhythm could help them manage their symptoms better—and if nothing else, it will give you an opportunity to meet new people and make friends who understand what you’re going through!
