How do you know you can sing ?
It is interesting to see how people approach an audition for a singing role in a choir or for some musical project:
- There are those who are confident that they will get the part, because they know that they can sing
- There are those who can sing, but they are a shy kind of person and fear rejection
- There are those who can sing. They know they are not the best, but they will try out, and are not bothered by the posssibility of rejection
- There are those who cannot hold a melody, and they know it
So which one are you ?
Who sings anyway?
Birds sing all through the day. Babies and children love to sing and singing is used as a teaching tool.
Almost everyone sings at some time or other. People sing:
- When they are happy
- When they are sad
- When they have quiet times
- In the shower or doing some repetitive activity
- When they are alone
- When the radio is playing their favourite songs
When do you sing?
How do you rate your singing?
Most people have a generaly good idea of how well they can sing , because of the reactions comments of others. On many talent shows they mention their reason for entering as the nudging of others.
There are people who are shocked to find out that they really cannot sing as well as they thought. Throughout my years of working with musicians and singing groups, I have met many people who love to sing and show surprise when they are told that they are not getting the pitch or the timing right. Some people work at it,while others decide to keep singing the only way they know how, and to forget about trying to perform.
How can you improve ?
Vocal coaching is the ideal route to improve resonance, tone, posture, breathing, facial muscle activity, and therefore the quality of your singing. Everything should improve by practice and if, for some reason, you are not able to enrol in a program, you can make some improvements by learning to play the piano, so you can make a few technical improvements and bring accuracy to your singing. Working with the piano, you can expand your range, and even learn to accompany yourself, an activity loved by many. You can also join a community singing group, a church choir or a small band. The regular practicing will certainly improve what you hear, what you are aware of, and eventually the quality of your output.
