Can Anyone Learn To Sing The Simple Truth Revealed
Hi. Aaron here from HowtoSing and I wantto talk about, Can anyone learn to singé I want to answer that question, a very commonquestion. A lot of people wonder specifically, Do you have to be born with a ton of talentor can anyone learn to singé What they really mean by that is, Can I learn to singé I don'tfeel like I'm very talented and when I sing, like it's just not that pretty. Can I learnto singé I want to say there are two reasons why Ithink that yes, anybody can learn how to sing. Some people definitely are born with tonsof talent, more talent than others but that is such a small percentage. Most people haveto work toward everybody has to work toward
it. Even if you're born with talent, you'vegot to still work toward developing that talent and becoming a good singer but even if youdon't feel like you have a ton of talent, you could still become a singer and here'swhy. First one is that the voice is made up ofmuscle. The voice box is made up of muscle; cartilage too but a lot of muscle in there.So asking if you can learn how to sing is almost like asking if you can go to the gymand tone up your muscles by lifting weights and doing exercises. Yeah. I mean absolutely.Once you start working those muscles out, they will begin to become toned and the samething is with your voice. Once you start doing
the vocal exercises and doing the work ofhow to sing, the muscles become strengthened and you don't have the weak muscles that can'thold on to pitch and can't extend the range and do all that. But once you strengthen upthose muscles, you have more control of your voice, more control of your pitch, more controlover singing high notes, et cetera, et cetera. The second thing is vocal technique. Vocaltechnique is something that anybody can learn. It's just a technique. It just you have toget the right teachers and learn vocal technique and vocal technique has to do with all thekind of knowledge part of how to sing, so all the tips and tricks, the voice and howit works and all that stuff.
You may be wondering why you may have triedto learn to sing and maybe it just didn't work out for you. So here I am telling you,you can sing. But you're like, Well, I've tried it and I can't sing. A lot of thingscould be coming into play there. First of all, the vocal coach or vocal program thatyou did may not have been there are some better than others and that could have been partof the problem. Another thing is that we live in such a nowculture that maybe you tried for a couple of days and you're like, Oh, this isn't working,so you gave up for maybe a week or two weeks or I don't know. Learning how to sing, itreally like anything, it takes time. It takes
time and it takes discipline and doing vocalexercises. Really the singers, maybe if you're serious about singing, that you do vocal exercisespretty much everyday, at least three or four, five times a week. And you don't have to spenda ton of time doing it but it is a daily thing and it takes time. So if you really want to learn to sing, askyourself. Reach down deep inside and say, Am I serious about thisé Do I want to do thiséDo I have what it takes to really commit to this and learn what I need to learn and evenspend money if I have to, to really develop my voiceé
So that's it for that. I believe that youcan learn to sing if you really want to and when you have the time. I have tons of othertips and tricks and tutorials.
