Have you wished you could sing the songs you love – but thought it was impossible because you can’t sing in tune? Do your friends and family make a face when you sing in front of them? Maybe a school teacher once told you that you can’t sing or were singing “off key”. Or perhaps you just have a feeling that you have a bad singing voice…
Tiago is 100% correct here. You really are better at anything you do when you do it with confidence, I haven’t haven’t sang in a while since I lost my guitar but I use to have half@sssd confidence in it. I started singing again tonight and was confident anything is achievable if you set your mind (also had a lot of complements about my ability which helps) and I have been singing better then I ever have before, all day today. When you don’t believe in your abilities you don’t give it your all, the key is believing in yourself completely so can give it everything you have, without sabotaging yourself due to worry that your best isn’t good enough.
Drink plenty of water. Drink lukewarm water for best results, as this will loosen your vocal chords. Give your body time to absorb the water. Avoid dairy products or thick drinks such as smoothies immediately before singing.

Raspy voices usually come from dehydration so be sure you get a lot of water! 8-10 glasses per day. Cracks happen from allergies and reflux. Stay away from acidic foods (orange juice, marinara sauce and fried foods are the biggest offenders.) Cracks also happen frequently to weak voices and you can strengthen yours with vocal training – start here https://www.caricole.com/singersgift
For devoted musicians, instruments are almost like an extension of the body – but vocalists are the only ones who can truthfully say their body itself is an instrument. And what an instrument it is! There are as many unique voices as there are people in the world, so no two vocalists have exactly the same sound. What that means is simple: if you want an instrument that’s like no other, your voice is it. All it takes is to learn how to unlock its potential, and that’s where vocal lessons at Guitar Center come into the picture. We’ll prepare you with the basic skills and knowledge you need for success, and guide you through the process of developing and fine-tuning your voice to bring out its musical potential.
So far I sing Fly Me to the Moon by Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra we’ll, still need to work on Dynamics, and Soft Attacks on the Power Phrases, but my instructor wants me to learn and practice Against All Odds, holy moly that song is very hard for me, not sure what is holding me back, I realized tonight that the phrases are a lot longer and there is less time to breathe in for the next one, any Suggestions ?? My mind is stuck in trying to impersonate the artist and duplicate their sound vs using my own natural voice.
A habit I have is to make my voice sound like the singer. (Or sing with someone who sounds like you.) This makes it easier to sing in tune, since the sound waves match more accurately. I sound a lot like TobyMac (you probably don’t) and I have a similar vocal range (mine’s a little higher), so I sing his songs a lot.
Last but not least, one of the most important qualities a singer can have is not necessarily a beautiful voice, but confidence! If you are firmly planted on the stage with a relaxed presence, you’re inviting your audience in and opening up your voice.
Hello, my name is Austin. I am have been a vocalist for 4 years now. I have trouble with high notes that are in my passaggio, amplifying vibrato in my tenor range, and getting my voice to project and resonate more on all pitches. Any suggestions, besides keep practicing XD. Thank you.
Maureen received her Master of Music from the University of Maryland 2017 with an emphasis in Opera Performance. Her teaching style is tailored for each individual student, in that what works for one student won’t necessarily work for the next (particularly in regards to singers), and strives towards finding the optimal method that encourages and helps students to improve. She firmly believes that anyone who is willing to dedicate the time and effort to learning a new instrument is capable of doing so, and looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals.
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!
If you’re quiet, muffled, or sloppy, the message and story of the song can get lost. Moreover, some singers don’t even recognize when they have poor diction. This is where recording yourself while singing, or getting feedback from a voice teacher, can make a huge difference.
The last time i took lessons i paid $100 for my instructor and my pianist through the University of AZ. But i writing in regards to this article on the cost of voice lessons. **I would suggest the new Voice teacher to ‘remember’ what where a students usual remarks to each question asked during a student ‘free Voice Consultation”. It will ‘cater’ to what the student wants and desires out of taking Voice from you.
This is as true when it comes to business or writing or almost any other field as it is for singing, and it’s important to keep this in mind when looking for a Vocal Coach. Would you rather train with someone who has spent many years exclusively teaching young people how to sing or with someone who was actually a professional Singer for many years and who then transitioned into being a Teacher or Professor? Ideally, your coach would have tons of experience in both roles, but that’s difficult to find and if you have to choose just one, go for the latter.
After you get used to it you’ll start to be able to hear how good your voice truly is, and this is where recording yourself becomes a powerful secret weapon. You can hear where your pitching is off and then correct it next time. You can hear when your enunciation isn’t quite right and then improve it. You can start to form an objective opinion about how good a singer you are.
To be honest, when you’re hitting the higher notes, you should be shifting from your chest to your head voice anyway, so you asthma is less of a problem for higher notes and more of a problem when singing constantly low. Primatene tablets at Walmart (they’re behind the counter so you have to ask but they’re not prescription) before you sing for a long time will help a lot.
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.
It’s one thing not to know any music theory and sing easy, beginner songs, but you’ll be at a whole new level if you can improv riffs in a jazz song or harmonize with another singer. This all takes a knowledge of music theory!
My teaching style is very laid back, although goal-oriented. We have fun while seeing progress. For piano, I typically use the Alfred Series “Alfred Basics 1 – 6” or the Adult All-in-One for the Older Beginner. In the first 3 – 6 months, one will become familiar with basis technics and concepts behind creating music. These concepts will be the foundation behind learning how to read music, play by ear, and create your own songs in any style.
Whether you have a musical background or not, singing is a fun and exciting skill to learn. Online singing classes will help you become more confident with your unique voice, and more comfortable showing it off in front of others.
Another approach is to join a community choir. While some choirs require auditions, others do not (particularly church choirs, but not exclusively religious). The choirs I’ve sung in have included work on technique, not just learning the repertoire.
Before the age of 12, the vocal chords have not yet fully matured. Our instructors take great care to focus on repertoire that is fun and enjoyable while still nurturing to the developing voice. These songs may include children’s songs, Disney songs, and pop songs.
maybe you cant, but to be honest….. let someone else judge you. A human will always certainly “down criticize his own traits (voice included)”. Let someone who u know will be 100% honest judge you. Best choice would be a person that cant sing himself but listens to shit loads of vocals. Trust me im a pioneer 😉
If you try to learn how to sing from free lessons, you’ll soon discover that’s it’s a painful task because there isn’t a library of lessons and steps from A to Z. This is why an actual program of online singing lessons is recommended to get you organized and on the right path to improve your voice correctly.
If you feel comfortable after awhile, ask to join the church choir. Then you can start learning more demanding and challenging vocal music, and you will have an opportunity to learn, practice and rehearse with some structure and some goals in mind, every Wednesday night and Sunday morning, for free.
Our certified vocal instructors are all experts in their field and can teach any level. We will find you a teacher who best suits your requirements, and your lessons will be customized to fit your needs and goals. If you would like to focus on a particular style, we have coaches who specialize in teaching modern, jazz, opera, gospel, R&B, rock, pop and more.
We are an independently owned organization, and committed to the preservation of this extravagant music industry. We will be posting stories and information about South African Jazz as well as interesting items from the wide world of jazz. The findings, interpretations, and conclusions expressed are entirely those of the authors of each article. We hope to give an insight into the happenings of any art form that has a strong bond with jazz. Whilst this website will also focus on information and reviews from a wide variety of international sources however we will not lose sight of the main focus which is Southern African jazz.
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.
