Take the first steps to improve your voice

Taking the first steps can be a challenge, but if you are passionate enough and take the time to research so you can change your voice and create a great sound coming from you so people don’t look like they just heard nails scratching a black board!! LOL

You want to learn how to sing a tune but you think, or even say you really can’t sing?? Anyone can do anything they put their mind and heart to, but only if that is what they want…  You say you don’t know where to start, or what kind of information you need to learn. It starts with taking the first steps…

 

 

 

 

Step 1. Commit to wanting to learn!

Are you serious about learning to sing and what does it takes to be the best you can be ? Are you committed? Are you ready?

Step 2. Find a program with one that you can learn and relate to the teacher and make sure that the program is a right fit for you…

You want to research different programs because there so many to choose from, and you also want it to resonates with you and your personality. Taking time to do this will benefit the outcome of your learning.

There are many programs out there that are more expensive than others, and it all comes down to your budget on what you are willing to spend. you want to get the best bang for your buck! ( as they say!)

Once you find a program and are committed to doing your lessons, make it fun, keep it simple, and keep going! And of course, depending on your budget, and how you feel like you have progressed enough to make you feel comfortable on stage, then make that decision on stopping the program or sticking with it… Cause not only do you have to commit to making the time but you will also be spending more money if you don’t have to.

Step 3. Found a program!!! now commit and practice 3-5 times a week, do each lesson and perfect it!

O.K. so now you found a program, NOW you just need to commit 3- 5 times a week since your making the monthly payments, and you want to get your moneys worth i’m sure…. What I used to do what create like a booklet and each day I would put the lesson down and practice it at least 2-3 times until I felt I got it and I know I was ready to move onto the next lesson. So keeping notes is key as well as practice, practice, practice!

Step 4. Belt out your voice everywhere you sing!

My suggestions is you want to pick songs that are in your range, I would say start off with easy songs. My first songs used to be from Cindi Lauper, called Time after Time, and then I got daring and would sing, ” Girls just wanna have fun”.
Practicing a few songs before you head out for karaoke will give you confidence while people think you sound really good!

I can’t stress enough that practice is the key, practice and sing whenever you can, in the shower when your blasting your ipod  or on your docking station while it’s on full blast so no one can hear you! LOL! or even singing on your way into work works too if your worried about anyone hearing you… Try to sing a few favorites and make them your favorites, until you get tired of singing them and move on to bigger and better songs! We all have to start somewhere!

Step 5. Be proud of what you learned and have loads of fun doing it!!

Always great when you feel like you have accomplished something, and it’s even better when you feel how much your voice can change with the commitment to learning, practicing and making it happen!!

 You will be surprised what you can sing! I know I’ve come along way and I’m loving the whole journey of it all!

 

NEVER SAY YOU CAN’T DO ANYTHING!!

    Great Post
    I really enjoyed your writing style and the way you built encouragement and humour into the steps. I can see you in full Girls just wanna have fun mode.
    I often think people are their own harshest critics about their voice and wonder if its because they have to allow themselves to be vulnerable, but once they do… It’s like new found freedom. Be interested in your thought.

      Hi Jason,

      Thanks for taking the time to comment to my post. I appreciate your input, and I’m glad you enjoyed my writing style, etc… You know I remember when I first started out I did feel vulnerable, but over time with taking lessons, and learning new songs to sing really changed my confidence in myself. I think that we all have to feel vulnerable to get past our fears? That is my thought to your comment. But once we get past that it does become like new found freedom, your absolutely correct!

      Have a great day!

      Hi Karin,

      Well I whole hardheartedly believe that. I know to get better at singing it takes practice, just like with anything. I think that if you have the passion for something in life that you can make it happen. Thanks for your comment! Have a great night!
