How To Sing Well In English – When It’s not your First Language…

I remember well, some of the incredible Japanese rock bands from the 80’s and 90’s, like Loudness and Bow Wow (then Vow Wow and back to Bow Wow) – and some of the other artists from all corners of the earth whose first language was not English (sometimes it wasn’t even 3rd or 4th) – yet, even though they had a difficult time speaking it, they managed to sing well in English.


The top music market in the world, by far, is the United States and there are three more English speaking countries in the Top-10; England, Canada and Australia, and seeing as the music industry is growing – because of streaming and touring – it makes sense that singing well in English is a wise thing to do.  It’s a helpful talent to have and it can only help your career.


And besides, let’s be honest, “Beat It” by Michael Jackson or “Jumping Jack Flash” by the Rolling Stones don’t have the same punch when sung in Hindi.


By the way, the most difficult languages to learn for native English speakers are Mandarin Chinese, Arabic, Polish, and Russian.


Even though English is the native language of about 360 million people, it is estimated that roughly 1.5 billion people in the world speak English, that’s approximately 20% of the world’s population.


South Korean Rapper PSY put some English lyrics is Gangnam Style… and even though three high quality (cough) English words doesn’t really count as lyrical genius, chances are it’s the only part of the song most of the world can sing along to – or remember:

Eh, sexy lady

오-오-오-오 오빤 강남스타일

Eh, sexy lady

“It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
Honestly man, you are not going to find a bad review here. The course and this forum completely demystifies every single aspect of great singing. Just be prepared to do the work.”
