Some were just born with a gift. But if you want to learn how to sing, here are a few things you can keep in mind.
Try to think of someone you know that knows how to sing really well. Now ask that person if you can sing along with them. Find someone who is adventurous in the vocal range, someone who can give you things to try. Keep in mind when you sing that it is always best to stand up to sing as it allows more air into the lungs.
Warm ups are good for most anything, singing included. To warm up your vocal chords you can try singing the ever popular “do ray me fa so la ti doh” scale that we all know and love. Might want to have some fun with it and sing that song from the Sound of Music that adds a fun twist to the more boring do ray me.
Once your vocal cords are loosened up you can start singing with a song that you already know, one that you are comfortable singing. Like me, I love some songs but I know that they aren’t to be sung by me. No sense hacking them to pieces.
But I do sing the ones I know I can do and once I get real comfortable I add some “umph” to it and really try to project my voice.
