The most important thing I learn, though, is how to breathe properly. When David first asks me to take a deep breath, I instinctively puff out my chest while my stomach contracts. “We’re taught to be tense, to hold ourselves in,” he says, before explaining that the proper way to breathe is to relax, take in air deeply as if into your stomach, and then use this to support your voice as you sing. It can feel counter-intuitive, but with a bit of practice I start to get the hang 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.
I have taught acting to small children, teens, and adults in community, private, and collegiate settings. I taught acting at the legendary Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York City. My love of the arts has enabled me to study and perform in various cities throughout the US; including Los Angeles, where I studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, to Europe, Mexico, South America; then back to New York City, where I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from the prestigious Actors Studio Drama School.
In a powerful 4-part series, top vocal coach, Roger Love, reveals the same techniques he teaches his all-star clients (including John Mayer, Gwen Stefani, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, the cast of Glee, and many others!)
Be mindful of tempos and keys. Every decade of your adult life (between ages 15-25, again at 25-35 and again after 50) your vocal timbre and range is different. You have to allow for these changes in adjusting keys, tempos and song selection.
As you work through these steps remember that learning to sing in tune is simple and methodical process. You might hit some snags along the way (because learning is like that) but as long as you follow this process and don’t try to run before you can walk, you should find it is a smooth and enjoyable journey.
And as I’m sure you have noticed they are packed with bonus programs and extras that add value. If you add the cost of the programs and bonuses they will run up to hundreds of dollars, so you get to save quite a bit.
Singing well involves the breath, the resonators of the upper face, and the muscles that you use to speak (in the lips, tongue, and jaw). Try looking at yourself in the mirror while practicing to make sure you aren’t doing any extra, unnecessary work.
You will start with the fundamentals of singing in the first module, and then progress to breath management, mastering vocal tone, improving pitch, signing with power and resonance, hitting higher notes, improving vocal agility, and finally learning techniques for strengthening your voice.
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.
I found this extremely convenient despite my past experience when I took up singing lessons for kids, as Aaron has included some additional information I haven’t learned in school, nor with my teachers. Same can be said for a piano course I just reviewed here: PianoForAll review.
yep, its a good program, I was also skeptical at first cos I tried many online training programs and spent so much money and gave up all eventually, nothing really worked for me, I am also an introvert so you can imagine :). one day a friend of mine who is also a singer suggested this program, since I know how well he sing I thought, now what let me give it a try, so Yes, I bought the program, and I am glad I did, it not only improved my singing voice, it actually improved my confidence in singing 🙂 so go for it..
Hi… so when I sing I think I sound really good, but then I record it and listen to it and I sound really young (I’m 15, by the way) and shy, and my voice just sounds really unnatural. My choir teacher recently asked me to start cantoring at my church, but I don’t want to sing and then sound like an idiot in front of a few hundred people… Do you have any suggestions to help make my voice sound more natural and confident? Thanks!
My daughter has really enjoyed her first lesson . Andrew has been very flexible with our schedule to meet my daughter’s need. She’s going to have the final singing on next month. He will help her to get through. I highly recommend him as a great teacher.
Cool Down: Don’t forget your vocal cool down after extensive vocal use. Gently humming feeling the focus of the sound on the lips is an excellent way to cool down the voice. You should hum gentle glides on the sound “m” feeling a tickling vibration in the lip/nose are.
What I think about the teacher: I like Aaron’s style since he speaks very coherently and gets his message across in a nice way and without blabbering. If you like watching YouTube lessons so you know this isn’t something trivial. You can check him out in his YouTube channel and judge for yourself. I still follow his channel even though I finished the main singing course two years ago since he regularly uploads good stuff and singing tips.
Vocal coaches may also come to their profession through other routes, such as related musical professions or from other fields. Some vocal coaches, for example, are rehearsal pianists with decades of experience accompanying singers, or former or current choral, music theater, or symphony conductors. More rarely, vocal coaches may come to the profession from a non-musical route. For example, a specialist in Alexander Technique, yoga, or medical aspects of the throat and vocal cords may begin to specialize in coaching and training singers.
Hello, my name is Dylan. I am a High school student and I have been really wanting to start a band. If need be, I will go independent. I do struggle with equipment and money because, well, I have no money! I believe that I am a good singer and that I can get better. My one problem is stage fright. Terrified by the thought. Though I do have this fear and I plan on working on it, I really would like a vocal teacher or maybe someone who could help me with my music. If you think you can help in any way, PLEASE contact me at my email, email@example.com. Thanks!
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.
Module 8 is the last module in this course. Well, it’s not the last module because there are supplemental courses included in the Superior Singing Method. It is, however, the last content in the main course. By the 8th week of this course, I guarantee that you will have a great voice, and you will wish there will be eight more modules.
Our speaking voice is always inside our comfortable singing range, so you can treat this as an “anchor note” or a starting point for exploring your range. From this note, try sweeping up and down in pitch with your voice.
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.
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.
First off – this is an expensive program, especially with the monthly payments. But this is a great program developed by Brett Manning, nonetheless. Singers such as Taylor Swift and Hayley Williams of the band Paramore are among those who were trained by renowned coach Brett Manning.
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.

These are just some of the reviews of the program, as I’ve read others stating how quickly it helped improve their singing ability. Based on these reviews, many people do find the Superior Singing Method easy to use.
Basically, you need to record yourself and practice often. If your like me, you will hate the sound of your own voice at first. Don’t worry, you will get better. Most importantly, don’t hurt yourself. If you find a teacher that claims singing is “athletic”, find a new teacher.
Aaron is there to come to your aid. There is a special section under each daily lesson where you can ask questions. If you are having trouble with a certain lesson, or you are not sure if you are doing things right, Aaron is there to help you out.
Hello, I am manjusadhgunadas from India I am a song writer and I can sing too. I write and sing gospel songs and I also play piano and bass guitar. I don’t have cash to produce my song. Can any one help me out to raise funds. If so please reply me or inbox me email@example.com
However, the title “vocal coach” is sometimes used by teachers of the speaking voice for public speaking and acting. They rarely teach singing. The least confusing name is “speech and dialect coach”. A dialect coach teaches accents to actors.
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.

To practice tone and breath control, select a note that is easy and natural for you to reach. In a single breath, begin singing the sound and a soft, low volume. Gradually build up your volume until you reach your maximum comfortable volume, then gradually revert to your original, softer volume.
3 bad habits to avoid would be: (don’t worry too much, though… a lot of good singers do this) Clearing your throat. It grinds your vocal folds together. (I’m guilty of that. 😞) Don’t even think about it. It makes you want to. Also, don’t sing way out of your comfortable range. Who isn’t guilty of this? Many popular male singers (me too) sing way higher they probably should. Don’t drink anything but water before, and don’t eat anything sticky/sweet before. It makes it harder to sing and reduces your vocal range.
