Learn how to sing better in this Howcast online singing lesson featuring singer Anya Singleton.

Hi. I’m Anya Singleton. We’re going to talk about how to learn to sing
better.

Obviously, I can’t tell you how to sing better because you’re a different
person than me, but I can tell you how I learned to sing better. That was
basically a combination of finding out what works best for me, in terms of
both warm-ups and in terms of what stuff I sing well, and also in terms of
confidence. I think what you have to find out is what do you do well and
what don’t you do well? What you do there is you setup a situation where
you have a win/win, where you know that you do a certain thing well and you
feel good about it, and then there are things that are a practice run for
you, that you feel it’s something to work on. There are some challenges and
there’s things that you know that if you accomplish them, that’s another
thing that you can add to your repertoire as a singer.

I think it’s okay to go outside the comfort zone sometimes. It’s important
to do that so that you know, “I’m not really . . .” For myself, I’ll use
myself as an example; I’m not a classically trained singer, but I actually
do some classical exercises sometimes so that I can work on pitch,
sustaining notes, and the background of singing. It’s important to do that,
and that makes my actual singing, as the type of singing I am, better,
because I’ve practiced it. I think that’s basically my tip for singing: Be
yourself, know what you do well, and know what you have to work on, but
don’t make yourself crazy about it. Set yourself realistic goals.

In terms of practicing, I feel like as a singer, that 30 minutes is a
perfect number. That may be different for you; everyone’s different. For
me, I feel like 30 minutes is 15 minutes of a really solid warm-up and 15
minutes of working on a song. I would rather do that a few times a day and
come back to it than do one long stretch of 1 1/2 hours, because I think
that’s physically exhausting and I think it also makes you mentally
exhausted. I think pick realistic goals, so you walk away from it and you
say, “I’m not super-frustrated, but I didn’t get this one section. I’ll try
it again in an hour.”
