A vocal coach didn’t really seem like a good option. I wanted to be a REAL singer – someone who did this professionally. And being from a small town (read: not New York or LA) I didn’t think any of the local song coaches could take me to that level.

The good news is, “YES!” You can learn how to sing, and if you already sing a little bit, you can learn how to sing better. That’s the short answer. Let me take a second to explain why this is the case.
Begin by aiming for just a 3 song repertoire. Pick three songs you like and which are in your comfortable range. It helps to memorise the song lyrics so that you have one less thing to think about as you sing.
Within the first couple of weeks of my singing lessons, I noticed a remarkable change within my voice and vocal range. I have been taking vocal lessons with Deborah for over three years now. Thank you Deborah for all your continued hard work and dedication!
I fully believe that music is beneficial to everyone that comes into contact with it; with small children, it enhances learning and cultivated concentration. With older kids, it boosts confidence and sharpens listening skills while using math, problem solving, and hand-eye coordination skills.

I teach privately and at several studios in the DFW area. I am finishing my Masters st SMU in Voice Performance

Locate your diaphragm below your chest and above your belly – buried behind muscle, but detectable when you notice your chest expanding as you inhale. The goal is to direct all of your inhaled air into your balloon-like diaphragm – not your shoulders.

Singorama is a software based program. This software was developed by world-renowned vocal coach Emily Mander, but she’s since left the company. This is a complete course that has gained some widespread popularity on the internet and is pretty ideal for all kinds of singers, even beginners. This thing will definitely have you learning for a long time, but the rewards that await you at the end will be great.
Your singing voice is greatly affected by your posture and state of muscles. This is why it’s imperative that you avoid putting your body under tension. If your body is in any way distressed, it will be reflected when you sing and your singing voice won’t be excellent. Being relaxed will help you sound very good when you sing. The posture to adopt in order to achieve an excellent voice when you sing is to stand erect, look forward, keep your shoulders relaxed, and space out your feet so that they are parallel to your shoulders. Ensure your back is straight. The right singing posture will help you to avoid unnecessary muscle tension and thus making your singing sound very good.
Singing is a complete system in your body. Only learning certain bits, rather than the whole system, leads to never finding your complete singing voice. Never really having proper technique and never really mastering singing to the level where you can make a full time income singing.
We all know those few amazing singers who are famous for their wide vocal ranges – Mariah Carey for her five octaves, Ariana Grande for her full voice and head voice notes, and Toni Braxton for those low sultry notes.
Everyone has their own voice and whether we realize it or not, nearly all of us strive to find and develop it. Whether our voice is quite literally a speaking voice, or whether it is expressed through career, lifestyle, or relationships with friends and family, chances are that we have found a vocation and endeavored to grow with and through it at some point in our lives. Our voice is the biggest part of who we are for one simple reason: it identifies our unique, individual character, and allows us to share that with the world.
If you want to learn to sing it is really a two-fold process. First, there is the aspect of knowledge, not only about the voice and how it works but also certain tips and tricks that will help you avoid pitfalls, protect you from creating bad habits and increase your ability to sing—and all this more quickly than just doing some vocal exercises that may or may not be the right kind. That was a mouthful!

Singing combines technique and artistry to form beautiful sounds. This online singing class will help train your ears to hear various tones and identify simple intervals – both necessary aspects of singing. You’ll also learn some new exercises for practicing your ear training skills at home!
I have spent my entire life in the music industry and I can show you how to use what I teach to apply to the real world. I have also been a successful songwriter and I can work with students to learn about song structure and song writing.
In practice this means that if someone played two different notes on a piano, someone with true tone deafness would be unable to tell whether it was the same note or two different notes. Naturally, if that person tried to sing they would have real difficulty because their ears and brain wouldn’t have a clue if they were singing the right notes or not.
We have an app called SingTrue for iPhone and iPad which is specially designed to help people learn to match pitch with their voice. It automatically chooses notes in your comfortable singing range and gives you a range of simple fun exercises to practice matching pitch. And instead of the momentary display of the digital tuner, you can actually see a graph of how your vocal pitch varied over time which gives you a clearer idea of how your pitch skills are developing.
Before you rush to figure out what type of singing voice you have, there are two things to keep in mind. Firstly, if you’re a male under 22, or a female under 20, then your vocal range is still developing and you won’t know your true voice type until you’re a little bit older.
Start by practicing with a backing track. You can normally find karaoke versions of popular songs on YouTube, or if necessary you can use the regular studio version, singing along with the lead singer. Begin with just a short section of the song, for example just the chorus.
The good news is, almost all of the courses are under $200 USD. These courses will teach you how to sing like a pro. That is the first stage to becoming a paid singer. Learn to sing, the right way, then search out the income.
I’ve been very happy with Ben – he has been very helpful and encouraging, and his playing is very nice. He knows his stuff and is happy to share his knowledge and experience. I certainly appreciate his enthusiasm for the guitar.
My musical experience began at the age of 4 on the piano. I have been classically trained for most of my life. I have performed on soundtracks, played with bands (in genres from Jazz to Metal), and accompanied choirs. I have taught intro to piano and music theory since the age of 15. Currently, I teach throughout the Dallas metroplex, play in several bands, as well as write music for Television and Film.
The key focus here is the voice. This is a classical training method used in the days when people had no microphones. Before the invention of microphones, a singer’s voice had to carry throughout audience. This took a lot of emphasis on tone and resonance.
Whether it be a specific genre, general, academic reading or repertoire, just not wanting to stumble over words or just wanting to play or sing the songs you enjoy, I have the curriculum and supplemental material to reach your reading or music goals!
