Tips on learning to sing! Stay tuned for more to come…
Singing songs in tune might be a dream you always waited for to come true. Maybe your family, friends or school teacher once told you that you were singing “off key”. Such incidents might have led you to think, why can’t I sing in tune?
Guess what? You can learn to sing in tune and it’s easier than you might think.
Most people have difficulty singing in tune, while others start off okay but then are unable to hold a tune. Even though we would say that these people have a bad voice or are bad singers, this isn’t an everlasting trait – it’s simply that they haven’t yet learned to sing in tune.
What is the biggest problem?
Probably the biggest problem with learning to sing: we start out with the wrong idea, that singing is a natural talent you need to be born with, but not necessarily. In reality even the best singers have studied, trained and practiced to refine their voices.
Whatever your current singing ability, we can help you to sing in tune and develop a good voice.
In this article we will be covering four simple steps you can start taking today to learn to sing in tune.
These steps do start from scratch and build up your singing ability in a logical way towards singing real songs. After taking these four basic steps you will understand clearly how to sing in tune. You may not be the next American Idol but you will know for certain that you are always in tune and perfectly pitched.
Let’s dive in!
Step 1: Check you’re not tone deaf
Check if you are biologically capable of singing in tune. Often when we talk about someone who can’t sing you’ll hear the phrase “tone deaf.”
Tone deafness is a real condition. Biologically it is termed as amusia which encompasses a number of musical inabilities, including some related to rhythm rather than pitch. As part of amusia, you are incapable of hearing the differences between musical pitches.
In practice this means that if someone played two different notes on a guitar, someone with true tone deafness would be unable to tell whether it was the same note or two different notes. Naturally, if that person tried to sing they would have to struggle because their ears and brain wouldn’t have a clue if they were singing the right notes or not.
Does that sound like you?
Some things you need to know though:
True tone deafness is very rare and there are other (much more likely) reasons for singing out of tune.
Less than 3% of the general population actually exhibit tone deafness. This has been shown in a large number of tests and rigorous scientific studies, and so the probability of you being tone deaf is very small.
