If your son or daughter loves to sing, a private teacher can teach him or her how to sing correctly and stay excited about learning! Here, St. Augustine, FL teacher Heather L. shares 10 ways you can support your child throughout the journey… Kids are simply made to sing. In most of the lessons that I teach, no matter the student’s age, I inevitably find myself teaching her how to be a kid in some way. Shaking out tense muscles, dancing to the beat, making animal sounds, keeping
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.
To aid with the practice of this breathing technique, (which is also used for meditations) place hands on the tummy to feel the correct movements. For men, a tight belt can also be worn to push against.
Many people are gifted with natural singing ability, but whether you want to become a professional entertainer, a casual performer, or sing for fun, it is important to learn how protect your best asset and to increase it’s potential.
Two Octave Scales: Provides maximum stretch on the vocal folds. Start in a low pitch and gently glide up the scale on a “me” sound. Don’t push the top or bottom of your range but do try to increase the range gently each time you do the scales. Now reverse and glide down the scale from the top to the bottom on an “e” sound. You can try this on the “oo” sound also.
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.
I just had my first piano lesson with Robert where he worked to improve my piano playing technique as well as expand my skills into other areas such as improvisation. The lesson went very well. I look froward to expanding my skills in future lessons.
If you are longing for a better singing voice, you may have heard of the Superior Singing Method, which seems to be a hit for a lot of people. But does that mean the program will improve your vocals too? Well I did some research about the program which hopefully can help you decide.

Students who already have a wide vocal range and the ability to match pitch will progress faster than those who weren’t born with these talents. Either way, each of these talents can be developed with the right amount of practice.
The singing program is very fitting for various types of singers, beginners and professionals alike. It has also gained some widespread popularity on the internet. Learning the whole course may take some time, but as you finish the course, the fruits of your labor will be very rewarding.

Arms – When you aren’t gesturing, you should be relaxing your arms at your sides. Don’t make fists, clasp your hands, or fidget with your clothes. This adds tension and makes you look (and feel) nervous.
In terms of memorization, think of a song in a simple sequence. If I were trying to memorize the pre-chorus of “Beyond Me”, I would think “first stars, then water, then need, then see.” I learn new songs in under a week this way. (And old songs in 24 hours on the high end.)

Thanks, that’s helpful. I have been trying to sing occasionally but I might really be interested in taking a course to speed things up. How long do you believe it takes to really become confident for just singing around with friends on the guitar?
HI Brittain – you are holding your neck and throat muscles are too tight. Lift your chest high, relax your throat and neck and sing. For more help book a Cole Power Hour with me and I can fix it for you in one session!
As @luserdroog said in the comments, it would be best if you could get at least a couple lessons. Otherwise you risk learning bad habits with the physical aspects (that can’t be taught well except in person) that you’ll have to un-learn later.
You are basically becoming a voice athlete – and just like any other athletic training, you can’t just take a pill and all of a sudden be strong or great. You need good training and a good vocal coach.

The first module serves as an introduction to the whole course. It takes you through the different lessons and exercises that you have to do so it is essential that you watch the video. Furthermore, it serves as a guide in setting up a timetable and practice schedule.
Finally, don’t be surprised if most voice teachers work you out with a smoother approach…I hesitate to use the word, Classical, to make you turn and run….but most good teachers have had some classical training in their background. It doesn’t mean you have to sound that way yourself. But in fact, clear, melodic, scales and jumping exercises on 3/4 power will make all singers perform better, especially those with aggressive songs. Oh yes, I believe a teacher should help you become independent, so that you understand what you are doing right, and how to do it consistently.
Relax. Don’t discourage him from practicing “because he’s going to learn bad habits.” That’s like saying to a kid who wants to play basketball, “don’t practice before you make the team, because you’re going to teach yourself bad habits.” Actually having practiced before seeing a teacher will make what the teacher says make a lot more sense/have relevance/be easier to learn. – bobobobo Jun 3 ’12 at 1:37
You may also see ads for “vocal coaches”. They concentrate on improving your song performance, where a “voice teacher” concentrates on your vocal health and technique. Some piano accompanist’s become great “vocal coaches”.
There is no absolute guideline to learning how to sing. If you want to sing well, you have to continuously and religiously practice, follow a training program that’s right for you, and try to develop your existing talents, with hopes of honing even new ones (new styles of singing, that is).
Expand your vocal range with Christina. Learn her secrets for nailing those high notes and building your range. Use the Range Finder tool at the end of the lesson to put into practice what you’ve learned.
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……
