How To Become a Singer

By January 14, 2015How To Sing, KTVA

If you want to be a great singer, having ongoing great singing lessons is a vital component to your journey. The really great superstar professional singers of today ALL take lessons and practice continually with their vocal coach.

Singing is not like playing guitar, piano or any other instrument, when you sing, your voice is your instrument and the extension of that is of course your body. When singing correctly, your WHOLE BODY becomes your instrument. Everything from the way you stand, the way you breathe, the way you use your muscles, and the way you use your brain becomes part of the package.

You have to become in tune with your diaphragm, your throat, your lungs, your tongue, and your posture, so you become a well adjusted machine – when you accomplish this, your singing voice will amaze you and you will be able to sing anything, effortlessly.

There are two main reasons why great singing lessons are important. One is obviously so you can improve who you are as a singer, you will learn techniques and become skilled in the technicalities of singing so you can fully concentrate on your artistic side and belt out whatever it is you want to sing. Secondly, and even more important, is that great singing lessons will prevent you from hurting yourself. Singers who try really hard to sing without proper technique, often times lose their voice and/or injure themselves internally. I’m sure you’ve heard of singers blowing blood vessels or tearing their throat apart. This is solely due to poor or no training.

Taking singing lessons is like entering an athletic camp and training for an olympic sport, it’s not something that happens overnight. It takes a while for you to become completely aware of what YOUR WHOLE BODY is doing while you are singing – but once it clicks, it’s amazing!

So, if you are serious about wanting to sing at the very best level you possibly can AND you want to sing for many years to come without injuring yourself and losing your voice, take great singing lessons and never stop practicing.
