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.

Within the first couple of weeks of my singing lessons, I noticed a remarkable change within my voice and vocal range. I have been taking vocal lessons with Deborah for over three years now. Thank you Deborah for all your continued hard work and dedication!
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…
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.

I’m experienced (over 25 years of experience) and a great teacher…very compassionate, patient, and encouraging. I can also teach a wide variety of instruments. I have a bachelors and masters degree in music.
In terms of daily diet, nothing special. If you are talking about what to eat before you sing, try to have a lot of water beforehand. It may not be good to load up on food, since you will be using your diaphragm a lot and it could cause your throat to become dry, irritated, or clogged. Also, avoid foods that produce gas, like soda and large meals. It’s awful when you sing something and you have to burp in the middle of it.
It is possible to learn the basics of singing on your own, but if you really want to advance in your skills and ensure you’re using proper singing technique, you’ll definitely need the help of an experienced teacher.
The terms “voice teacher” and “singing teacher” are most often used to refer to a teacher that has been educated and instructs vocal pedagogy, while a vocal coach may not possess the same education level.
I still can’t get a vibrato working at all. I’ve been researching forever and just can’t figure out what’s wrong with me. Does my voice need to be stronger first before the vibrato will come? I feel like at the moment i’m simply practicing “laaa” repeatedly with no outcome. My ultimate goal is just have a vibrato, doesn’t even need to be a good one, i just want the experience of having one.
You’ve finally written a song and you know it’s good. So why not enter a songwriting competition and see how you stack up against other songwriters?

Yup, exactly. What you’re saying is practice and “close the feedback loop”. Another thing you can do is stick your finger in your ear while you’re singing, so you can hear yourself. This is a really noob thing to do, but it kind of works to start. – bobobobo Jun 3 ’12 at 1:34
Although singing isn’t the most difficult skill to learn, it’s definitely more complex than it seems. To some learners, singing comes naturally and they can create beautiful vocals with very little practice or effort.
When I came across Aaron Anastasi’s online singing course, I was SCEPTICAL about how efficient this program was going to be. After all, I worked with several teachers to improve my skills, and yet I WASN’T able to hit high notes or stay on pitch.

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.

I’d been thinking about voice lessons for years, and finally started about a year ago. My wife found an instructor through the NATS website (National Association of Teachers of Singing) and I definitely recommend finding an instructor who has some kind of real, formal training, and who also has background in the style of music you’re interested in (most formally trained teachers seem to have a background in classical, chorale, and musical theatre, though some also cover pop, jazz, rock and even country). I started out with 30 minute lessons each week for $35 each, and eventually moved to 45 minute lessons at $50 each. Each class covers warm ups and vocal exercises for about 10-15 minutes, then reviewing the current songs with feedback, and occasionally generally discussing technique and style. The instructor also provides sheet music, mp3 recordings of the lessons, and mp3s of the accompaniments.
Voice students are a bit different in that I don’t use a specific method to instruct. I have many books that I draw from when teaching voice due to the unique nature of the individual. Depending on the style of music, from classical to jazz/pop, I have music that will teach proper breath support, vowel placement and tone.
I know that for me, I enjoy getting to put the spotlight on my students. I also like haveing concerts for my students to be able to demonstrate their skills for their friends and family. I also can work with students of any age, starting at about age 5 through age 100+. My experiences with teaching children gives me the ability to teach even very young students.
Hi, I’ve been trying for a really long time to make my voice stronger and louder. I can sing high notes and low notes but really softly. If you listen to Get it Right from Glee sung by Lea Michelle she has such a strong voice with a lot of emotion. Do you have any suggestions on how to maybe get closer to that point? Obviously I’m not going to sound exactly like her but I would like to get better. I have had a huge dream of becoming a singer and right now I don’t know how to even achieve that goal.
