Vocal Tips (Part 5)

Can Anyone Learn How To Sing?

This is a question on a lot of people’s minds, so let’s address that here. If you have to move on before reading the rest of this blog, let me give you the short answer first. Yes. Anyone can learn to sing. Let me explain why I believe that to be true.

First of all, anyone can learn singing technique. It’s just a matter of finding the right information, applying it and practicing it. Anyone who has the desire can do that.

The second part of learning how to sing has to do with what I said last there, “…practice it.” Vocal exercises are basically just repetitive practice of different vocal technique. And this is two-fold. The first thing you’re doing is burning the technique into your mind, so that it becomes second nature. And, second, you are exercises the muscles in your voice, so that they becomes strong and respond correctly to what you are telling it to do.

Here is a great way to learn how to sing better.

Doing regular vocal exercises helps just about every aspect of singing. It warms your voice up; it helps you sing with better tone; it helps you sing with more power; and it helps you extend your range, sing higher notes.

So, can anyone learn to sing? Yes, anyone who has the desire and the discipline.

I hope some of this has been helpful. Thanks for reading!

Aaron

      Jasmine,

      Yeah, I think I can help. In my new program, Superior Singing Method, that I’m launching tomorrow morning, is an 8-week program, with daily lessons and vocal exercises. And one of the weeks is focused on how to sing higher notes and has a bunch of exercises in it, too. All of the lessons are geared toward building your voice and getting it to the point to where you have a larger vocal range. Part of the trick of singing higher notes is building a strong mix voice, which I talk a lot about in the course.

      Thanks for the note, and that’s great that you already have opportunities to sing!

    Hi, I was in the talent show and I thought I did good but then I herd the video and I sounded very bad and I was wanting to know a few things because there is about to be another talent show and I want robe in it but not if I can’t sing good. And I want to know a song to sing to…..

      Lexie,

      Hmm, that’s a tough one, Lexie. I would stick to a song that you feel comfortable singing, not necessarily just one that you like that is outside of your range and level of comfortability.

      Hopefully the next one goes well. If you really want to get better, take a look at my course, Superior Singing Method. It will help you get to where you want to be.

      Good luck!

    Hi, I’m Jake and I’m trying to start a band, I listen to Avenged Sevenfold and bands like that and I believe I need to scream because my voice is to raspy and to nasily, but I’ve really never screamed before. I’ve seen you’re video on improving the soft pallet and I’ve been practicing with that on youtube. I think I do well but then when I record myself I can still hear my voice. Like my talking voice and trust me I can barely talk good. I was just wondering if I should stop trying to sing and just find a singer and stick to the guitar, but I don’t know anyone so this has started off as a solo thing. Do you have any advice on screaming and transitioning to stay on pitch when singing? Kind of like the song Unholy Confessions, my friends either say my singing was good when I’m on pitch but my screaming was too sloppy when I transfer it to screaming. Any advice there?

      Jake,

      Hmmm, let me see. It sounds to me like most of your trouble would be corrected by developing the muscles in your vocal tract, which is all the muscles used to sing well. In order to do that, you would need to work on your technique and do the right vocal exercises regularly. And as far as screaming goes, you mostly need to take care of your voice with lots of water and sleep to repair the muscles fibers that you break down when you scream. The voice was never really meant to do that for long periods of time, so the best thing for that is care.

      I do have an 8-week, step by step course, if you’d be interested in that. I give plenty of technique instruction, along with tons of exercises and exercise programs that you can follow to get where you need to be in terms of vocal strength, stamina, power and control, which will help you with your pitch.

      Best of luck to you, Jake.

    Hi my name is Naz and i really want to learn how to sing. I’m listening My Chemical Romance and I want to sing along their songs but my voice sucks and I really want to make it better with practicing like you say. But the problem is I don’t know where to start learning. Can you help me with my problem please? :)

      Naz,

      First off, I love My Chem! I saw them on their Black Parade tour. And my buddy is now their drummer, and they rehearse one block from my house. :)

      You have a couple options. I’ve got a bunch of videos up on my YouTube channel (howtosingdotcom) that can help you, but if you really want to improve quickly, in a step by step kind of way, I’ve got an 8-week, intensive program that you can find out more about here: http://www.howtosing.com/sing-better-fast-ssm/. That’s the best way I know how to help. I spent a few years developing and refining this course and this method to help people just like you. :)
