I see singing as a pleasure every person should get an opportunity to enjoy. Most people have a dreadful experience of learning how to sing at early stages.

You may find someone dumping his dreams and hopes to the ‘untalented box’ which is untrue and a terrible waste of time. As a music coach, I came across a great music site where I refer such people for inspiration.

You will find several singing techniques if you choose to visit the site.

However, we can take some time and look at the core steps of learning how to sing. You will agree with me that all of us are musical and you learn the art through a process.

First, you need to have an understanding of your vocal instrument, suspend belief and learn to let go, and trust that your body can sing.

It feels and sounds good to have an understanding of when you are doing the right thing.  A combination of singing tips and exercises will enable you to develop an incredible singing voice.

I view singing as a basic pleasure that allows you to let go and enjoy the fun. It’s a learned response that you have to teach your body to do over time.

You can access the core power of your body by just relaxing and letting go. Many of us have a problem with singing as the process does not entail holding on but opening up.

Making trials in the wrong way or trying too hard may result in off-center performance and a lot of straining.

I came up with a list of six basic steps that can assist you to learn how to sing. These include;

  1. Breath and Posture
  2. How to develop the color and tone of your voice
  3. Creating a note that is pure and clear
  4. Learning to use your breath to control the notes you sing
  5. Applying various vocal exercises and using your notes to strengthen your voice
  6. Singing actual songs as you exercise

The importance of exercising while singing is that it allows you to concentrate on the emotion and not the technique of the song. Sometimes it’s very hard to separate these two aspects.

You may also be singing a song that does not stretch your voice. Sticking the version of a song into your head may encourage you to copy the composer and not find your original voice.

Singing exercises can develop and stretch the voice in a manner that simply singing a song cannot achieve.

The voice is a muscle and exercising strengthens it day by day and allows you to move from one tone to another. The basics of learning how to sing are simple but you cannot achieve the objective if you don’t practice on a daily basis.

You can sing in the shower or along the radio as long as you enjoy. Start thinking ‘joy’ each time you want to sing, and program the reaction into the emotion memory of your body.

You cannot freeze or tense up when you have a joyous feeling.

Take your attention down to the heart as you enjoy the feeling of air filling your lungs. You can stick to your throat and head as you sing and not make proper use of the body.

The last tip of learning how to sing is confidence. There exists a battle between your head and your heart as you sing and you need to put aside any negative feelings.
