For vocalist, I work through Estelle Liebling, Vocal Course, Alfred Piano (as an instrumental reference) and a number of practical performance techniques that I have gained over the years to sing in more of a pop, jazz, gospel setting. We will work on performance techniques and develop the ear to gain confidence to perform in various popular settings. I will also introduce creative ways to make up original music using basic theory and ear training.
Fortunately there’s even a simple and fast way to check if you’re tone deaf. You can take an ear test online in just a few minutes and find out for certain whether tone deafness is responsible for your difficulty singing. Take one of these tone deafness tests and you’ll be one step closer to understanding what holds you back as a singer.
Private vocal coaching was not the road I wanted to go. I needed someone who can help me become a professional singer. You see, I live in a small and uneventful town (very unlike LA or New York). The local vocal coaches could not help me become a real singer.
Beyond that, improving your singing tone is best done with the help of a professional. Since there are many reasons your tone could be suffering, working with a voice teacher can help you identify what you need to work on — whether that’s insufficient breathing, a limited range, or understanding how to first attack a note or phrase.
My goal for my students is to grow in their love for music, while building a strong foundation of musical skill. I own and teach from my commercial studio in Midlothian, Perfect Pitch Music Academy (www.perfectpitchmusicacademy.com), as well as a second studio in Duncanville. My studio offers piano, voice and guitars lessons. We have three recitals throughout the year. My students have fun during lessons while at the same time learning the musical theory and technique needed to progress!
The Superior Singing Method by Aaron Anastasi is one of the most popular and downloaded vocal training programs on the Internet. If you’ve been researching this program like I have, I’m sure you would have read the testimonials from people who have used this program. I’ve compiled a list of these as it will give you an idea of what the program is about.
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.
As someone who learned a lot about effective course structuring and created an online course myself, (the Harmonica Jamz course for learning harmonica) I can definitely tell that Aaron knows the psychology of learning and of creating an effective learning process for his students.
There are many reasons why this program is becoming popular, not the least of which being the lessons are much simpler to learn compared to standard singing lessons. Since the lessons are on video, you can watch it over and over.
People ask this question for several reasons. One is they like to sing and play instruments and become musicians. They fear that this is some kind of talent that only a few people got. I have some reasons to help those who like to be musicians and singers. These have helped me to think otherwise.
I definitely understand where you are coming from. I couldnt hit high notes with good tone literallu a few weeks ago. Now that I know how to sing more correct I can definitely understand her anologies. Singing is hard to teach, I imagine because people are stubborn lol
Hello, i am Sahir Khan and i’ve recently started, i actually can sing good in my normal voice and better in my head voice but as i reach on higher notes i sing them barely as they are in other words i lose control on higher notes.What can i do? and also i have a decent vibrato in my normal voice but i lose them also on higher notes to some extent…..i will be very thankful if you help….. thanks.
I am a skilled instructor and have been teaching for over 16 years. My experience includes teaching at the University of North Texas, Denton and HEB school districts, through many churches and my private studio. I have worked with ages ranging from children through adults. With music, I hold my bachelor’s degrees in music education and vocal performance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I earned my master’s in vocal performance from the University of North Texas. I am certified to teach music in the schools in Texas. I have performed with numerous organizations and many of m
I also want to say that singing lessons online also cover lessons that regular vocal classes don’t even teach such as the anatomy of vocal cords, instilling discipline, posture, health and how to succeed in the industry.
Here’s what I did: I downloaded the exercises before watching the videos or while watching them. Downloading them like that was a great help. Once I went through all the materials, I was able to perform the exercises properly without needing much assistance.
Practicing how to sing daily is just logical, right? Simply sing daily. Practice going higher and try out new songs. What’s so complicated about singing? It’s just something you can practice in the shower, right?
For the next 20 minutes, study a song to learn the melody and rhythm. While memorizing the lyrics, work on your diction, pronunciation, and vocal tone. And finally, for the last 20 minutes you can practice vocal techniques including ear training, harmony, and sight reading.
Practice your major scales, starting with the middle C, moving down in half-steps before moving up. Don’t push yourself before you’re actually singing, and try to move slowly. As you continue to warm up, you’ll get better at articulating all the notes in the scales.

A. To a certain extent. And to a certain extent it’s a PR myth. This is how I like to answer that “born with it or not question”…the best and bravest singers are singers first, and students of singing later. Kids who like to sing never shut -up and therefore they grow. The intuitive development gained by singing throughout childhood, i.e. vocal strength, timing, an ear for harmony, and an ear for matching instruments cannot be made up for later- unless they perhaps master a musical instrument as a child. Good singing is more than a great sounding voice. This is why there are successful pros who may not have the most amazing tone, but really take the house down.
There exists a science that dictates how a beautiful tone is produced. One of the things that can give a singer a gorgeous tone is the use of vocal resonances. These resonances (Frontal sinus, Sphenoid sinus, Maxillary sinus and Ethmoid air cells) enhance phonation in quality of tone, intensity and color. This results in a beautiful, rich and unique sound. In contrast, resonating poorly will make one’s voice sound thin and ordinary. At “Beautiful Voice NJ” students spend of part of their private singing lesson learning how to resonate.
KTVA’s Singing Lessons for Beginners are the exact same lessons we teach our professional singers – when you enroll in the How To Sing – Better Than Anyone Else vocal course, you will start at the beginning and take your time with Volume 1. Ken Tamplin will SHOW YOU (not just tell you) how to use your voice correctly and you will experience a breakthrough right from the start. You will learn to sing the right way!

Many of my friends says that I have a good voice. I am a tenor and I admit I have a good voice and I can reach high notes without cracking but my voice sounds awkward when you hear it in mic and in phone. Please help me fix my problem thank you
4 good habits would be: If a song is too high: Use your resonant (so-called “head”) voice. It can increase your range about a half octave. (6 semitones exactly, for me) If you have no idea what I mean by head voice, look it up. It’s a bit hard to explain. The other option is to sing louder (but don’t yell) if it is too high. My head voice is very weak, so I sing loud instead. Also, make your consonants clear. (I’m guilty of this one, too! 😄) If you sing into a mic, probably want to use the soft spongy covers for it if you get into this habit. That way you’re s’s won’t make everyone cringe from the high pitch. Don’t freak out if you suddenly sound terrible on one note. The closer you are to being on the correct note the worse it sounds, until our ears can’t hear the difference. And warm up first. Even if that’s singing a scale.
Practice hitting the high notes. High notes are the icing on top of the cake: not always necessary, but really wonderful when done right. You probably already know your range by now, so you also know which high notes you can hit and which ones you can’t. Be sure to practice hitting the ones you can’t yet reach. Practice will make perfect.

View the prospects listed in “tips” before moving on to the steps. The “tips” show certain valuable references on correct singing, such as raising the soft palate, breathing and posture, jaw placement, breath control, and other aspects. The steps provide vocal warm-ups which may be beneficial as part of a vocal training practice. Enjoy!
In your voice lessons, you will learn how to warm up, extend your range and strengthen you vocal cords just like professional singers. You will work on specific songs in order to perfect your singing, and most students will hear improvement in just a couple weeks.
I am so very thankful that I decided to give it a shot! Aaron’s course is like an entire vocal coaching staff at your disposal whenever you need it. It’s tailored to my needs and at my own pace when I want it with instant feedback and real measurable results.
Many people have difficulty singing in tune at all, while others can start off okay but then can’t hold a tune or gradually start hitting wrong notes or wandering out of key. Although we would say that these people have a bad voice or are fundamentally a bad singer, this isn’t a permanent trait – it’s simply that they haven’t yet learned to sing in tune.
Also consider what you hope to accomplish with your singing lessons. Do you want to be a music teacher? Join a choir? Or is theater performance in your sights? Wherever you want your singing lessons to take you, it will be the most beneficial to you if you choose an instructor with experience in that particular area. The more specific knowledge categories a vocal teacher has, the more he or she can charge for lessons.
Then again, even someone with exceptional vocal teaching skills may choose to charge a lower rate because they want to give everyone the chance to take singing lessons, no matter what their finance situation is like. Think about your specific goals and intentions as you’re searching for your teacher, and what you need in a teacher. It’s also smart to read through ratings or feedback from previous students to get a feel for the instructor’s teaching style and proficiency.

Think of practicing singing as you would exercise. Exercising every day improves your coordination and muscular ability. Using your voice every day improves the coordination and muscular abilities involved with breathing, lifting the soft palate, and relaxing the rest of the body.

As you may know Bruno Mars has the first single from Breaking Dawn, The Twilight Saga movie soundtrack, with the song entitled “It Will Rain”. Also he is up for a whopping six Grammy awards, including three in the top categories: album, song and record of the year. But what does this have to do with your singing voice?…
