Singing Lessons - Singing Lessons For Beginners

Uploaded by HowToSingDotCom on 03.10.2011

Hi. I'm Aaron from and I want to talk for a minute about singing lessons.
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
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.
So that's all for that but I've got a ton of stuff on my website, You
can go check that out or click the link below and I actually just put up a video. It's a
video on how to sing high notes. It's about a 10-minute video, how to sing high notes,
but specifically how to sing high notes without strain, which really is the goal.
So anyway, check out and I will see you on the other side. Hope you will.
