How to Learn Singing – Before You Begin
Before you begin, listen to a lot of different songs in many genres. This will help you settle on a style that best suits your voice and personality. Do you want to sing rock music? Opera? Maybe country and western or rhythm and blues suits your style best.
Next, start practicing to find your natural vocal range. Sing a note that you can comfortably hit. Then sing progressively higher notes until your sound quality decreases. Go back to the first note and then sing down the scale to find the bottom of your range.
This is an informal exercise, but it will help you get an idea of which notes you can comfortably sing, and which ones you need to work on.
How to Learn Singing – Self-Study
Many vocalists teach themselves to sing. Learning to sing by listening to other singers, without formal training, is called ‘singing by ear’. While some classically trained vocalists frown on this approach, it can lay the foundation for strong pitch recognition.
The problem with learning to sing by ear is that you can develop bad habits that are difficult to break later in life. Professional lessons can be expensive, though. Many singers find middle ground by using self-study courses.
Self-study singing courses typically contain videos or audio files that guide you through warm-ups and vocal exercises. They can help you expand your lung capacity, control your breathing, increase your vocal range, and sing smoothly across your vocal breaks.
If you decide to go this route, read reviews before you purchase a product. Some systems are better than others, so user reviews can be very helpful. You can find self-study singing courses online, or at your local library or book store.
How to Learn Singing – Professional Help
If you would prefer to do your learning face-to-face, consider signing up for singing lessons. Look for voice coaches in your area, or get a referral from friends who have had a good experience with a particular instructor.
If the cost of voice lessons is a little steep for your budget, try joining a choir at your school, church, or community center. This will give you access to an instructor and other singers that you can trade tips and techniques with.
How to Learn Singing – Advanced Techniques
After you’ve spent some time practicing, you might decide that you really enjoy singing and want to do more of it. It can be a little daunting to sing solo when you’re accustomed to singing with a group, but a little practice will decrease nervousness.
You can use your self-study course or your instructor to learn advanced techniques like perfecting your head voice, reaching into your falsetto range, and developing a vibrato. You will also learn to read music and transpose your favorite songs into a different key so that you can sing them easily.
Now you know how to learn singing without putting a huge dent in your bank account. Have fun experimenting with different musical styles and gaining confidence in your voice!

What Do You Get For Just
Claudia. Los Angeles:
I’ve been singing since I was young, but I felt I needed help with my breathing and tone. Singorama has been amazing at helping me with these and more.
Angelique. New York:
Friends have told me for a long time that I have a good voice… so I decided to buy a singing course to improve my singing skills and I found Singorama… It’s an amazing guide and has taught me a lot.
I sing for a living but knew I had some room for improvement, so searched on Google for a singing course and found Singorama. I haven’t looked back… it’s all you need!
I’m Madi! I love music and I’ve been singing since I was a baby in the crib. I used to have a bit of trouble with my breathing and range. I was browsing online and came across Singorama and it’s completely helped to improve my vocals. Thank you SO much!
Jennifer Punt. USA:
I want to say THANK YOU for creating such an amazing system. I’m so impressed with the versatility of Singorama. It truly is made for beginners and advanced singers alike! I’ve been singing since childhood, but due to some negative experiences, I started to lack confidence in my singing ability and fear of performing started to creep in. Through the detailed vocal exercises and being able to hear my own voice, along with the Mini Recording Studio, I’ve been able to make the necessary adjustments in my voice, improve my range, fine tune my pitch, and get back the confidence I needed. Thank you so much for bring back my joy in singing!
I would like to thank Singorama for this wonderful product! With this, I have managed a much better projection of my voice and my head voice has definitely improved through the course. I also liked the bonus software provided – Singorama! Mini Recording studio where I get to record and hear what I sound like during practice. Gosh…with all this training, I took part in a singing competition and got through to the finals! Thanks for all the wonderful lessons…you are the best!!
Kwesi Williams. Maryland USA:
Hi this is Kwesi Williams. In 2005, I served as the Youth Minister at one of the alegence of the manual covenant church at Maryland. I was informed that we would be doing a live recording at the end of the year and I had about six months to prepare myself. I knew that I had some problems with pitch and so I got online and I started searching out programmes that would help me with my pitch and I discovered Singorama. I got Singorama, worked with Perfect Your Pitch Pro – the results were wonderful and dramatic! We did record the project and I lead two of the songs that featured on the project of the Manual Covenant Church Live In Worship. So I highly recommend Singorama for those that want to work with their pitch. I do have to say that I got so much more than what I was looking for. Singorama also helped me with my timing and with reading music. I’m also featured as a writer on the project. The tools of Singorama definitely helped me to put together songs that are worthy of being recorded. Thanks!
I’ve always loved singing, but I never had the confidence to sing in front of other people. I set my mind to achieve a goal… and that goal was to sing in the local choir. I really needed some help though – I was like a timid mouse and couldn’t project my voice properly. My daughter came across a singing course online called Singorama, and I decided to give it a go. It was exactly what I needed to give me real insight into how the voice actually works and how to improve it. I’m so happy to say, that I am now a lead vocalist in my choir and couldn’t be happier!
Yes, hello. My name is John Elsfelder. I have been very successful with your course. I am very pleased. I actually was able to improve my voice and go into a studio and record a song that I wrote and I am trying to make it in the business, even at my age. I’m 48 years old, but I am going to do it. And I had a great time in the studio and I can even send you my song, so you can hear how good it sounds. I think the course is awesome. I love the technique about warm-ups, I really liked that. It really has helped me. In fact, I did that before I actually went into the studio. Anyway, I have a finished song, and I’m going to do 3 Christmas songs, hand them out to my family for Christmas on December 9th, and on December 16th I am going into the studio to record 2 more songs that I have written. I have written 9 songs so far. I just want to make it into the business, I’m trying to get on the radio. Everyone that has listened to my song loves it, and if I could get radio airplay it would be a hit. I’m just trying to make it and your course has really helped me a lot. I really, really am glad that I bought your course.
