Misconceptions About Singing

One of the reasons why I teach singing is to encourage people who have been negatively influenced by others, sometimes even hurt or embarrassed into not singing.

There is a misconception that you have to be "born a natural singer" or be "born singing in tune" or be "born with a perfect voice", to be able to sing or to take singing lessons.

That is not true. Although a natural talent does help, it does not make you a perfect singer. Every human being is born with a voice and if you have a DESIRE to sing, then you should, even if you can't yet, you CAN learn.

Singing is a skill, just like painting or dancing or athletics. You can have a talent for it, but you still need to learn how to use it to perfect that skill.

The prerequisites for learning to sing are that your physical instrument should be in good working order and the number one prerequisite is that you should have a DESIRE or PASSION to want to sing.

Whatever your vocal problem is, whether its an overly nasal tone, or singing out of tune or just sounding "bad", it can be overcome. That is the point of taking singing lessons, to enable you to "acquire" the necessary knowledge and skill to learn "how to use" your voice (instrument) correctly and to "fix" any vocal issues along with strengthening and building up your instrument so that you can sing, well.

I have never come across a student who has not improved vocally with practice. If you persist with your practice, you WILL improve your voice.

That said, there is also the other side of the coin. You will not become a professional singer by taking a few lessons. If you're an advanced singer needing just a few touch ups, that is what a few lessons are for. You need to be committed to consistent practice to improve vocally. That is why the desire to want to sing is necessary, if its not there, you will not keep up with lessons. Beginners should think in terms of years, not months to achieve an advanced level.

Anybody can sing, if they WANT to, but not everyone wants to. We all have different desires and areas of interest, but to tell someone they "can't" sing before they have been given the opportunity to learn "how to sing", in my opinion, is wrong.
