How to Sing Better for Beginners
- Written by Rodrigo Marques
One of the recurring questions of my students, it's about: I can learn how to sing, even without having any talent?
In fact, not having talent is no excuse to not be able to sing. Most important for those who are beginners in the art of singing is to have the willpower to learn and look for knowledge. In this post we'll take a look at the steps you can do to achieve your goal of singing any song. Come on?
Can anybody learn how to sing?
In order to find out if anyone can learn how to sing, first of all, we need to understand some basic concepts.The human voice is not unlike a musical instrument. We can consider the human voice as the most complete musical instrument there is. The voice is capable of playing polyphonic sounds, those with more than one note at a time. The voice can modulate in a practically infinite range of notes and intervals. So applauses to the human voice!
As we can see the human voice is a musical instrument to be learned. The difficulty of learning to sing is like how to play a musical instrument whatsoever.
The key ingredient here is the determination and clarity of purpose. Do you want to learn how to sing, no matter how long it'll take.
The answer to this question is a warm Yes!
How to learn to sing by yourself
Another common question is: how to teach myself how to sing? There are several ways of how to teach yourself to sing better, and as we know that the voice is a musical instrument, we can use the same approach that we used to learn piano, for example. The first thing to do is to learn music theory. Knowing how music works is fundamental to understanding the vocal interactions of the other members of a musical arrangement.
The second part is about how to perform your vocal instrument. It is normal to learn about the parts of a musical instrument when we are learning about it. Likewise is done with his voice we started learning about vocal cords, diaphragm, nasal voice, throat voice, chest voice.
If you want to learn how to sing by yourself, you need to find a good method or teacher who will guide you through all the vocal techniques necessary to correct any problems that may arise along the way.
How to be able to sing higher
Many songs are recorded in very high tones, this requires singing too loud. This is another very common question: how to sing very high?
The first thing to do is try to figure out your vocal range. That is to say which is the size of your voice in relation to a range of musical notes. Your voice may be low, starting from a very low tone, and rising only an octave and a half, or very high, from a medium tone and rising to really high notes.
Further, we have the complete singers capable of embrace two and a half octaves, which means that those singers can start from very low tones and climb up to almost impossible notes for normal humans.
How to get a better voice to sing
I started singing in 1996, and at that time I was a youth lad, with the loudest voice. Singing loud music was no problem for me, but that has changed over the years. My voice now has a low tone, and with some exercises I got back my ability to sing high tones. I had completely lost the ability to sing loud music and my voice had shrunk to an octave and a half. Today I have two octave vocal range, which is enough to sing any song.
So if you want to get the best voice, then you need to train a lot and use vocal techniques to open your voice to the fullest.
How to sing beautifully fast

Tips on how to sing better instantly
One of the tips I do is: never force the voice while it is cold.
Trying to force high musical notes with your voice cold can hurt your vocal cords forever.
So be very careful when you are singing, even in the shower, it is very dangerous and can prevent you from getting sing loud music. So be patient with your voice. Start making vocalizations such as ooh, ahh, zzzz, zzzzziummmohhhh. Do this for a few minutes before trying to sing any song.
After vocalizations, try singing a song in a low tone, without many variations in the choruses.

How to sing really good without lessons
No dear, that's not possible. You can be born with some innate ability for music, just playing and singing would be easier. However, if you have willpower, already have everything you need to learn how to sing better. You can learn how to sing, even if your voice is small, you can not sing along of choruses. After all, it all happens because you maybe are not using some simple techniques that could help you sing better.
Therefore, look for a good singing teacher.
Whether you want to sing as a tenor, or if you want to sing like a pro. Spend some time in this task of learning how to sing and you'll be ready to get its first results, beautifully singing to your audience playing your voice like playing a violin or a saxophone.
