The question I hear more than any other, when it comes to singing, goes something like this: “Can I learn to sing even if I don’t have a ton of talent?” or “Do you have to basically be born with the ability to sing? Because I wasn’t, but I’d still like to become a good singer.”

Even a pro singer like me likes to keep up to date on technique. I first had pro singing lessons back in the early 2000’s, but in 2012 I purchased the 4 Pillars of singing course as I was intrigued by Robert’s technique. His training helped me develop my head voice to be more powerful, and helped me remove resistance in my vocal break.

Pitch is defined as the quality that allows us to classify a sound as relatively high or low, and is determined by the frequency of sound wave vibrations. Knowing how to sing on pitch is what sets apart great singers.
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.
Improving your voice will come from a combination of proper exercises and techniques, along with practice. Practice you can do by yourself, however you need someone to tell you, and show you which singing exercises and techniques will improve your voice in the shortest amount of time.
There’s a lot to remember as you’re learning to sing, but once you’ve mastered a few simple techniques, you’ll notice your voice getting stronger and better each day. Let’s review 10 things you need to know to become the best singer you can be!
I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied violin for about 2 years, studied and play mariachi for 18 years, and studied voice for 6 years. I can teach students to read music and pursue a career in mariachi or classical music. I can also teach students how to play any of the mariachi instruments (violin, trumpet, guitarron, vihuela, guitar) and teach them how to sing, as well.
Now it’s important to note that there are two different types of vocal exercises, but I’ll say more about that in a minute. First, I want to talk about the actual knowledge part of singing, which is important because with the right knowledge you can increase your singing ability dramatically and almost immediately, once you apply that knowledge. Of course you can improve your singing with vocal exercises, especially when doing both types, and I fully recommend doing them. But those take time and work, whereas the knowledge part is applicable right now.
Many singers that we hear on the radio today are professional. Are they actually ‘trained’ in the art of singing? Only a few are actually reared to be singers. Others might have a natural singing voice, which does exist, and is enough to get them by at their professional level. Others might be great songwriters and even play a few instruments and have a strong enough voice and message that entices the public. But, do they actually know how they are producing those sounds that are appealing to their modern day listening audience? Maybe.
Once I decided that I wanted to become a better singer, I didn’t know where to start. To rise above other singers in the field who are amazingly talented, I knew I had to improve my voice. How can I achieve this?
et, Reader and Words Programs”, as well as numerous supplemental material. I also love to work with teachers when possible and use placement tests to determine where to start and periodically to know how to continue. (The kids just think they are games).
So finally, after a bunch of frustration and getting nowhere. I decided to bite the bullet and try out some of the paid online singing lessons. I could go after the super expensive options like Berklee’s full vocal course – I just couldn’t afford it. So I set out and tried the cheaper lessons. To my surprise – there were some REALLY GOOD options, right up my alley.
You’ve probably heard the word “tone” a lot as a singer, but what exactly does it mean? Is tone something you need to improve or develop? Not exactly. Your tone can’t be changed; it’s your unique “vocal thumbprint” and is primarily determined by the shape of your head, throat, and sinuses.
Now that you’ve got correct breathing down, let’s tackle the next important element of great singing. Remember what we said earlier about your body being your instrument? It’s true — and it’s your entire body, from your head to your toes!
So, how do you strengthen your pitch-matching abilities? One method is simple aural drills. Start by playing a note on a piano to find your pitch. Sing along, and then subtly slide your pitch one way, and then back to the note. You’ll start training your ear to hear the varying pitches.

Even professional singers have to practice everyday to maintain their level. Singing is an exercise, and to do it well requires practice. If you want to go run a race, for example, you train beforehand. You run daily, stretch, read about running, and immerse yourself into a sort of running world. If you do run a race without training, you might simply run out of breath and have to walk. You might even have to stop altogether, or worse yet, you might get injured. In the same way, you shouldn’t attempt to sing at a ‘trained’ level until you have practiced, reflected, stretched, and actually sung quite a bit on your own or with a tutor or instructor. Only in this way will you excel.

Not far away, the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth is home to the prestigious Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, and the city is home to the wonderful man, founder and superstar himself, Van Cliburn. Other noteworthy musicians who launched their careers from the rich recesses of Deep Ellum’s unique culture scene include Blind Lemon Jefferson, Robert Johnson, Huddie “Leadbelly” Ledbetter and Bessie Smith.
I say the App is great! I hate how people are giving it one stars because it’s too “advance”. I mean, how? To me, it’s really easy actually. You press on a exercise and it gives you a task (it goes from easy to hard). If you did it great! Then you get 5, if you didn’t, you get a 1 (which s what I usually get because I suck at singing hence why I downloaded this). It even gives you tips, and tricks. I say my singing has gotten better. I would like if the graphics weren’t so 90’s looking, BUT its free lol.
