How to learn to sing
Have you always wanted to become a singer? Many people
dream of singing, but few take the steps required to learn. Here are some quick
tips that will teach you how to learn singing, on your own or with assistance:
How to Learn Singing – Before You Begin
Before you begin, listen to a lot of different songs in many genres. This will
help you settle on a style that best suits your voice and personality. Do you
want to sing rock music? Opera? Maybe country and western or rhythm and blues
suits your style best.
Next, start practicing to find your natural vocal range. Sing a note that you
can comfortably hit. Then sing progressively higher notes until your sound
quality decreases. Go back to the first note and then sing down the scale to
find the bottom of your range.
This is an informal exercise, but it will help you get an idea of which notes
you can comfortably sing, and which ones you need to work on.
How to Learn Singing – Self-Study
Many vocalists teach themselves to sing. Learning to sing by listening to other
singers, without formal training, is called ‘singing by ear’. While some
classically trained vocalists frown on this approach, it can lay the foundation
for strong pitch recognition.
The problem with learning to sing by ear is that you can develop bad habits that
are difficult to break later in life. Professional lessons can be expensive,
though. Many singers find middle ground by using self-study courses.
Self-study singing courses typically contain videos or audio files that guide
you through warm-ups and vocal exercises. They can help you expand your lung
capacity, control your breathing, increase your vocal range, and sing smoothly
across your vocal breaks.
If you decide to go this route, read reviews before you purchase a product. Some
systems are better than others, so user reviews can be very helpful. You can
find self-study singing courses online, or at your local library or book store.
How to Learn Singing – Professional Help
If you would prefer to do your learning face-to-face, consider signing up for
singing lessons. Look for voice coaches in your area, or get a referral from
friends who have had a good experience with a particular instructor.
If the cost of voice lessons is a little steep for your budget, try joining a
choir at your school, church, or community center. This will give you access to
an instructor and other singers that you can trade tips and techniques with.
How to Learn Singing – Advanced Techniques
After you’ve spent some time practicing, you might decide that you really enjoy
singing and want to do more of it. It can be a little daunting to sing solo when
you’re accustomed to singing with a group, but a little practice will decrease
You can use your self-study course or your instructor to learn advanced
techniques like perfecting your head voice, reaching into your falsetto range,
and developing a vibrato. You will also learn to read music and transpose your
favorite songs into a different key so that you can sing them easily.
Now you know how to learn singing without putting a huge dent in your bank
account. Have fun experimenting with different musical styles and gaining
confidence in your voice!
