I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals!
@bobobobo, people have been singing for a lot longer than 96 years. I don’t see the book’s age as a valid reason for criticism. And there’s no strong reason to trust Amazon’s ratings. You might be right, but you need a better argument… – naught101 Sep 23 ’12 at 13:19

I’m going to give you an exercise and a lesson for singing with good pitch. Those of you who watch American Idol, the word “pitch” has become a household word. We all know what that means when a singer is singing slightly off-pitch. Pitch is something that even good singers work hard to have. You can have a really good musical ear and have a good musical voice, and still go slightly off-pitch. You can have a voice that goes off-pitch just from not being a singer and not using the voice much. The more you sing, the better your center of pitch gets. You want to think of pitch like a circle with a bullseye right in the center. Different singers actually sing and professional singers who have good pitch all have a slightly different center of pitch. So there are some singers that sing slightly sharp, and some singers that sing slightly flat, but not enough to go outside of that circle. So it sounds like its really good pitch, but if you put them together singing in unison, you would even hear that.
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.
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.
Just bear in mind that HearAndPlay is very much Gospel & R&B/Soul oriented – this fact sometimes throws some people off. However, this does not mean that they only teach Gospel songs, so don’t run away scared now.
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.
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.
A proper warm-up is incredibly important before using your voice, as is staying hydrated at all times, which keeps your vocal cords from getting irritated. You also might notice specific foods that affect your voice. Some singers find that they don’t perform well after eating or drinking dairy, for example.

superior singing method review
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…
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.
My vocal teacher strongly encourages me to sing in low register, saying that is where most commercial songs are ‘located’ and from where shout occurs. However, I feel that once I get to C5, I naturally mix and can actually better control my vocals and do a better job of lifting my soft palette, which is, admittedly, more difficult to do in low while going to a higher pitch. So the question is, is it better to avoid mixing and sing in LR as much as possible?
“Love songs last longer than lovers often do” or so does one popular love song line stated. I cannot say whether that statement is true or false. What I know for sure is that love songs can linger into music fans’ memories, period.
Practice daily. Every day, practice your breathing exercises, warm-up routine, and recorded singing. Listen for parts that you don’t hit with your voice and keep chugging. It could take several weeks of practice just to get a single song down pat.
Each voice type (soprano, tenor, bass, etc.) has a different vocal range associated with it. Simply stated, your vocal range is the span from the lowest note to the highest note your voice can produce.
Once I decided that I wanted to become a better singer, I didn’t know where to start. To rise above other singers in the field who are amazingly talented, I knew I had to improve my voice. How can I achieve this?
Hi Christian! Getting your voice to sound good on the microphone is an art unto itself. Try getting a bit closer to the mic and use breath control to control volume to get a better rounder sound (instead of the thin sound that comes from being too far away) and sing with Hearfones to get better control over the sound of your voice http://www.hearfones.com – That’s a start – of course there is a lot more to it. I recommend training with a great vocal coach who can show you more.
If you are quite envious of those songwriters who are able to make a strong impression or a kind of popularity that could last a lifetime, you have come to the right page. I will give you ideas, even a step-by-step guide on how to write a love song. I’m not talking about just any other love song but a love song that couples from all over the world could find attractive to use as their anthem. Continue Reading »
Of course! To a certain extent. There are some aspects that you can improve, such as staying on tune, breathing, articulation, expression, etc. The voice you’re born with is, however, is the voice you are stuck with.
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?

Note that if you feel any type if physical strain or especially to the extent of pain, stop practicing. This may be due to practicing these techniques in an incorrect fashion. Seek to speak with a vocal trainer, choral director, or a specialist of the vocal folds. They will be able to show you what is being done incorrectly, and offer insight for self-improvement.
If you’re serious about becoming a singer, you’ll have to get used to singing in front of a large crowd of people, and in stressful situations. It’s one thing to sing to yourself in your bedroom; it’s another thing entirely to sing in front of dozens or maybe hundreds of people.
Learn how to use your art to express your voice and challenge the opinions of those around you, while staying within your comfort zone. Christina challenged the norms of sexuality and shame with her music. What will you talk about with yours?
Also consider what you hope to accomplish with your singing lessons. Do you want to be a music teacher? Join a choir? Or is theater performance in your sights? Wherever you want your singing lessons to take you, it will be the most beneficial to you if you choose an instructor with experience in that particular area. The more specific knowledge categories a vocal teacher has, the more he or she can charge for lessons.
When it comes to online singing lessons, there are just so many options. Learning how to sing is something that you’ll work on for your whole life – always trying to get better. Singing lessons will be a huge part of that.
Some recognize notes and enjoy a melody, but say they can’t sing or play. I say you can sing and you can play. If you just follow the proper singing lessons and proper instrument basics, you can sing and play. It is not difficult but simple. All you have to do is to put some effort. Just to practice and that is all what matters.
Fortunately, a great way to broaden your search and go beyond the bounds of where you happen to live is to find a teacher who conducts live, online singing lessons via video chat. This also affords you more flexibility in scheduling, especially if you live in different time zones. Additionally, cutting out driving time and taking lessons from your favorite teacher from the comfort of your own home – despite the miles that separate you – is an extraordinary feat.
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.
Another aspect I personally enjoyed was the accessibility of this program, as I could easily “pack” it on my laptop or tablet, and read it virtually anywhere – in the bus, at work, in the park, at Starbucks, etc.
Have you ever wondered how singers such as Whitney Houston, Freddy Mercury, Maria Carey, Elvis Presley and Ariana Grande produce that beautiful sound? The answer is “Bel Canto.” It’s not just a vocal technique, it’s a science. Some great singers intuitively apply the concepts of “Bel Canto” to reach vocal greatness while others were taught. At “Beautiful Voice NJ” students learn everything from how to produce a gorgeous tone to how to gain ultimate pitch control. Modern day Bel Canto, which means “Beautiful Singing,” is applied to all styles of music: Rock, Pop, Alternative, Jazz, R&B, Funk, Blues, Soul, Broadway, Country, Hip Hop, Classical and more.
