So you want to learn how to sing and you’re hoping to get some extra tips?  Well you’ve come to the right place because at Vox Singing Academy we believe “if you can walk you can dance and if you can talk you can sing!”

If you haven’t had singing lessons before or have had any other form of vocal training or coaching then keep on reading.  This article will give you some ideas on what we’re all about.  In our view, no matter if you have had some experience with singing, whether it is amateur or professional level, we strongly recommend that your technique is right from the very start. As singers or performers, it’s a great way you lay a good foundation and evolve for your continued singing and vocal progress.

“You can’t build a fantastic building or structure on poor or weak foundations and this goes for singing as well.”

Sometimes we have to go back to the basics.  Your voice is an instrument and therefore it is crucial as a singer and performer that you have vocal stamina.  Your voice needs to be strong in order to sing the higher or lower notes, correct breathing control and support, understanding how to transition from “True Voice” and the “Falsetto”.

During your evolution and process of learning how to sing better, is the ability to sing with confidence and emotion.  Ensure your song delivery and stage presentation connects with the audience.  Feel the music and don’t be afraid to show your emotions.

Learning how to sing better with proper technique is not rocket science, however it does take dedication. For more guidance on your vocal journey, please consider the following: –

1. Please come to terms and embrace the tone and sound of your own voice. Accept the natural range of your voice, or in other words, how low and high your voice can go, for now.  We say for now because there are ways to enhance your vocal range and not to brag, we’re great at it.  However it’s important that you remain patient as everyone’s voice and vocal range is different.

“It’s like our fingerprints, they are all unique, beautiful and different.”

2. To the best of your natural ability, you need to try to focus on singing the right notes or singing in key and pitch. The reality is, anyone listening to you sing would rather hear you sing a song in key than out of key.  One of the main points of scale practice is to improve your ear and musicianship.

3. People out there tend to like particular songs or artists, but just while you’re starting out, make sure that the 1st few songs you sing are songs that are comfortable for you to sing in your natural range.

Do not do songs that are too high or too low for you! No pulling faces, sounding like someone else, straining or hurting your voice.

4. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you make a few mistakes or are not progressing as fast as you would like. Life is a marathon not a sprint. Have some fun and do the best you can. Remember, practice makes perfect. So the more quality practice you do, the quicker you will improve.
