How to Find The Best Singing Lessons For Beginners

Singing lessons, kind of a broad topic but I actually want to cover three main questions when it comes to singing lessons. First one is, Do you have what it takes? The second one is, Do you really need singing lessons to improve? The third one is, What's your next step? Then I want to give you an idea of kind of where to go to find good singing lesson programs and all that.

Do you have what it takes? What I find with the people I encounter, people I've encountered with lessons and the singing and want to sing and all that, that you're your own worst critic. So if you think that you can't sing or you just feel like you weren't born with a ton of talent, I want to say that with the right tips and just getting started learning, a lot of people kind of just come out of their shell and they really bud and become good singers.

So don't let the demons, your own demons that you battle with, your insecurity let you think that you will not be able to sing, that you don't have what it takes. The fact is, with the right instruction, anybody can learn to sing. That's a question that comes up all the time. Can I learn to sing? Yes, you can learn how to sing. I will get more into that in this next question and the next question we will tackle is, Do you need singing lessons to improve? I think one of the problems is that we see our favorite singers. They step on stage or we listen to their CDs or whatever and we don't ever actually see them doing the vocal exercises, doing the vocal training, doing all the learning. So we just kind of assume that they didn't have to. They just woke up or they were born and then they just stepped on stage and they have these beautiful voices. They could just do that but that's just it's just not the way it is. Your favorite singer, I guarantee whoever it is, had vocal training. They did vocal exercises. That day you saw them, they probably did a 30 or 45-minute regimen of vocal exercises and do it daily.

The fact is, vocal exercises are really important. I know this is more about singing lessons but with singing lessons, what happens is you get all the things you need. Basically to learn how to sing is two basic categories. There's a bunch of learning stuff about the voice, how it works, a lot of just tips and tricks that just help you,like having your tongue where is your tongue supposed to be when you sing? I don't know. Well your tongue is supposed to be rested up against those teeth for all the vowels that you sing. So it's kind of where like, Hey, when you say, Hey, where your tongue goes there. That's where it's supposed to be for all the vowel sounds and a lot of the consonant sounds and when you do a consonant sound, you want to go right back down there. So it's just little things like that, that will affect your singing in a big way but you won't learn unless you take some type of singing lessons.

So there's tons of stuff like that and the second part is what I was saying, the exercise part. Anybody can learn to sing because of vocal technique anybody can learn and singing exercises everybody can do. You got to know the right singing exercises and all that. You got to learn how to preserve your voice. There's just a bunch of stuff that you can learn with singing lessons. So I think it's really important. I think that if you're really serious about wanting to sing which is the next one, what is your next step?

The next step is kind of a personal inventory. Are you ready to do what it takes to become a singer? It does take time and effort. The voice is something that people want to expand their range and sing high notes and do all this stuff and that's fantastic. It's absolutely possible but it does take time. It does take effort. So are you at a point in your life where you're really ready to do that? Are you ready to take the time or to spend the money and do the exercises, to do the work? Are you ready to do that? Are you serious about it? So if you are, then I would say there are tons of good online singing lesson programs out there. I think some are better than others. For sure, I won't go into that right now but singing lessons, I do think they're important. I think that you can become the singer that you want to be better if you do take singing lessons and you can read more about singing lessons in Superior Singing Method. Whatever your decision is, I wish you best of luck in whatever you do in life.
