Our voice is an instrument which we all have but many of us think that we’re not able to use it! As far as we are concerned, it’s simply not a case that you can’t sing, it’s simply a case that you’re not using your voice properly. Of course, singing is a great skill and even if it’s just to do karaoke when you’re in the pub with your mates at a weekend, it’s something you can enjoy! With that in mind, we’ve teamed up with local music school, A.T. Music Group to take a look at just why it’s important for anyone wanting to learn to sing properly to have even a few lessons with a professional vocal coach!
First things first, singing isn’t just singing! In order to be able to sing powerfully without straining your voice, you need to know how to use it properly and sing from within as opposed to using your throat! After all, the last thing you want if you’re singing regularly is to have a sore throat every time you sing! A professional vocal coach will help you to learn the best technique and ensure you’re singing correctly and not doing yourself or your vocal chords any damage!
Secondly, to become the very best singer you possibly can be, you need to know how to breath! It’s a common misconception that singing is simply using your vocal chords in the right way however to truly sound fantastic, you need to breath properly and again, this is something which a professional vocal coach will be more than capable of helping you with! It’s not rocket science but without lessons, you’ll never be sure you’re breathing correctly and may not sound the very best you can!
At the end of the day, singing is great fun but to ensure you sound great and don’t damage yourself, is strongly advised that you take even a short series of singing lessons to help you gone your technique! Who knows, we may see you on the X Factor in years to come following your new found skill!
