One last point, and this is a big one. In general, if you are doing anything for your own pleasure, keep in mind you don’t have to be good. (Although I know how great the “being good” feels.) The only person you’d be in competition with is yourself and yourself past, and you’ll always be better than your past as long as you keep practicing, just as good as your are now. Instead of saying, “Holy cow, I’m bad at this,” say, “It was[…] not bad, but there’s always some room for improvement.” And no one better than you would say you’re bad at something. If someone says you’re not good, they’re not any better than you at that or something else. And anything is possible.
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.
Articles for singers including audition advice, hitting the high notes, using falsetto, vibrato, performance, perfecting the act, powerful vocals, throat tension for beginners to advanced singers and singing teachers.
This manual works hand in hand with the entire course. Instead of going through the entire course first then going through the manual, I suggest that you take the time to do both of them together. I did this, and it helped me tremendously.
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. Your mind is your own best friend and worst enemy.
If you’re committed to improving your voice and learning how to sing well, you probably already know that there’s a lot more to it than just taking a deep breath and recalling the lyrics to your favorite songs.

superior singing method review
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.
Let me offer a serious suggestion that has been a popular method of learning to sing for people for many generations: Attend church services on Sunday mornings at a Christian church and sing along with the hymns. Find a church whose congregation sings traditional church hymns from a hymnal book.
Confidence is vital for good singing, and the shortest way to get confident about your singing is to see proof that you sing in tune. That way you can step up on stage or join a choir safe in the knowledge that your voice will be in tune and you’ll sound good when you sing.
Begin with the solfege symbol “do” while singing the pitch. Hold out this note to the extent of your comfort. Then, sing and signal the note “re” while holding it out. Then, go back down and sing the note “do.” The object is to move on and sing from “do” to “mi,” then “do” to “fa,” then “do” to “so,” then “do” to “la” then “do” to “ti,” then “do” to “do,” or as far as desired.
Beginners to Advanced singers can find some excellent sites on the internet, with free lessons, exercises and advice some of which can be found in sections of this site plus there are a host of excellent tutorials and articles for intermediate and advanced singers in our Singing & Music Articles section.
During the 5th week of the Superior Singing Method, you will learn all about resonance and power. Singing with a powerful voice is not necessarily all about volume. It is all about getting your voice out there and catching the listeners’ attention. How you use your tongue and mouth as you sing has a lot to do with power and resonance. Aaron will teach you about the proper tongue placement and voice resonance within your mouth.
The next step is to work on your vocal power. Vocal power requires proper breathing and diaphragm control. Add some breathing exercises to your daily warm-up, and pay attention to correct positioning of your jaw, mouth, and body to help with this.
Move on to thinking about the rest of your body. Where are your shoulders, back, arms, bottom, hips, legs and feet? All these body parts have an effect on your sound. Experiment by moving these body parts differently. What happens?
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.
Vocal range goes hand-in-hand with vocal power. Once you get your breath support under control, you can begin exploring your range. The ability to relax your throat and support your voice will give you the power needed for the wider range in notes.

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.
That’s probably the biggest problem with learning to sing: that we start out with the wrong idea, that singing is a natural talent you need to be born with. It really isn’t. Just ask George Bevan, director of the Choir Who Can’t Sing, who specialises in helping people who think they “can’t sing” discover that they actually can.
Mrs. Lisa was absolutely a joy to work with. My granddaughter was visiting for a few days when she mentioned she would like guitar lessons. A few calls later we had lessons set up with Mrs. Lisa. Michelle was so excited when she finished her first lesson and said, “Mrs. Lisa is just like my Aunt Jenn.. She is sweet, kind, she encouraged me and made me feel like I could learn to play my guitar.”
I can’t remember the last time I sang badly at karaoke. Unfortunately, that’s because whenever I do sing badly at karaoke – which is to say, whenever I try it – I am often so blindingly drunk that I mercifully manage to black out the entire sorry episode.
Depending on who you choose and what they have done in their past, your Vocal Coach may be able to help you get some actual gigs. They may also know someone at an institution of higher learning who could further your vocal education and training. I’m not saying former professional Singers are the only instructors worth hiring but they have a very valuable skill set that others won’t have. It’s worth investing some time and energy into finding somebody who has earned their bread and butter with their voice as well as with their teaching.
Enter a local singing competition. Be reasonable about how you expect to perform; if you’ve been singing for less than 3 months and have no formal training, it’ll be difficult — but that’s what you want, right?
Man, I’ve seen a lot of questions here like that and I think the best way is to get an teacher. It is my oppinion. I think we can learn by ourselves but an experient teacher can make you progress faster and in the correct way.
By the end of these four steps you will have built up a small repertoire of songs you can sing well. You can be totally confident stepping up on that karaoke stage or singing with friends because you have proven to yourself very clearly that you do sing in tune and you can sing these songs well. Once you get past the scary barrier of wondering whether you’re in tune, singing is one of the most absolutely wonderful ways to express yourself musically. So have fun!
Hey Shane, I was following the program every day (it was rare that I skipped a day) for 8 weeks, while also singing some of my favorite songs in between on my guitar practice sessions. Starting from the 3rd or 4th week I started feeling the major improvement as well.
Hey Jillian, glad you liked the review. Yes, I think any musician will benefit a ton from singing lessons, so especially if you wanna major in music – singing is a super valuable skill. The most important thing is to sing a bit every day, just one song is enough and will get you far. Best of luck to you man.
You won’t go to the hospital for drinking salt water. Salt is in everything. Sure if you drink it in an excessive amount you might get a little sick/dehydrated but that’s it. Other than that good tip for helping soothe a sore throat.
If you want to learn how to sing better, a good first place to start is with your posture and breathing. While there are a bunch of different aspects to a breath management system, the cool thing is that if you get the posture thing, which honestly isn’t that tough, then the rest will begin to fall into place. So, I’ll say some about both but……
I have had formal voice lessons during my teenage years. I took choir in college and have had 30+ years of singing and teaching experience. I am the Music Director at my church, directing congregational singing and choir, and I also teach elementary music class once a week in our Christian school. I have only been vocally trained; therefore, I have to hire a pianist to play for the voice lessons I give, so that comes out of what I charge. I have had several students in the last few years ranging in age from 12 to 32. I try to keep voice lesson costs as low as possible, and I am also willing to work with the person a little, depending on each situation.
He uses both video and audio lessons to teach you how to sing better. You can take daily lessons, which consist of one video each. You also need to perform several vocal audio exercises along with each lesson.
hey im like in your position, but i saw multiple dreams connected to lil wayne where i then appeared in a studio with him and taylor swift who said i can be a singer… tbh *to be honest with you* I think you just cannot be shy anymore, that is a key.

Module 10 is all about music marketing. Although Aaron does not go into detail about the business side of things in the main vocal course, this bonus module will show you how to promote your music and how to make money from it.
I’m going to give you one of the greatest tips that I know about singing higher notes. Now, don’t hear me wrong, though, extending your range takes time and discipline. However, this will move you down that road a little more quickly……
