It's sometimes believed that having a beautiful singing voice is an innate talent that can't be developed. This is not true at all. Indeed, there are people who can sing rather well without any special training, but they still need years of practice before they have their first contract with a recording studio. The voice is in fact similar to other music instruments, like the piano or guitar, in that singing is about having the right technique that can be learnt with a teacher. Throughout history, opera singers had to take lessons to develop their voice and musicality and so the singing techniques were passed on from generation to generation.
We are often afraid of singing out of tune and prefer to keep quiet. But this ability can also be acquired. Contrary to common belief, most people have a good ear for music and their main difficulty is to coordinate it with their voice. A good exercise can be to listen to notes played on the piano or the guitar and to repeat them. Gradually your pitch will become more precise and you'll be able to execute even very difficult music. If you're just a beginner it could be good to start your training with a singing teacher who'd choose the best exercises for you and correct your mistakes when needed.
Music lessons aren't only for those who'd like to become professional musicians. Vocal practice can also be a great hobby when you have your free time as it helps you deal with stress and is good for your health. What's more, singing is a great way to socialise with other people. Whether you sing in a choir or someone accompanies you on the piano or guitar, you will have a lot of fun doing music. In Hamilton, there are lots of places where to meet other musicians and practise singing with them. Maybe one day, you can even record your own CD in a studio so your friends and relatives can listen to your singing.
As we said, one part of singing training is developing your pitch. For this, you will need to do vocal exercises and a lot of listening. But, these exercises will be useful not only to start singing in tune but also to develop your voice and to learn to breathe correctly. When we sing we breathe in a particular way, using our diaphragm. It allows the singer to control the air flow and their volume. It also enriches the singer's voice as you voice your resonators in a more efficient way. Learning how to breathe is especially important for beginner students and if you live in Hamilton you can easily find a private teacher who will help you with this task. Or else you can take online singing lessons with the best teachers from across the country.
Many famous singers haven't received any formal musical education at school. This doesn't mean that learning some music theory can't be useful. By learning more about notes, chords and tonalities, you will better understand how music is composed in general and it will help you work together with other musicians. Instruments like the piano or the guitar have a larger range than the human voice and can adapt themselves more easily. However, as a singer, you will need to give them indications on what they should do.
Finally, vocal students often learn the basics of playing the piano or another musical instrument. It can be great to be able to accompany yourself singing and the piano can be useful to do exercises as you can play the notes you sing. You can learn the piano at school in Hamilton or with a private music teacher. And if you have a piano at your home, you can even take online lessons with teachers who will help you via webcam.
As a singer, you'll be able to perform in a variety of music styles and genres. As you start your training it would be better for you to learn a style you're interested in and look for a teacher who knows it well. They will be able to suggest new songs to learn and to listen to and it will help you stay motivated.
However, you should know that the best starting point for a singer is the classical vocal techniques. The classical school has been extremely productive in creating vocal exercises and teaching methods and classical singing can be an excellent basis for other styles too. Pop, rock or jazz singers use in fact the same breathing techniques as classical vocalists, simply they don't execute the same songs. Even if classical music may not be the most exciting style for you, you should consider it as an important stage in your learning that will help you move forward later.
Most vocal teachers start by teaching some classical exercises and once the students have developed the basic technique, they can move on to new styles to have more fun. If you enjoy what you're doing your singing skills will improve quickly and you may record your first CD in a studio very soon.
