Have you ever just felt down and not in the mood for anything? I’m not talking about depression, exactly. That’s a whole different story in many cases. But just “the blues” – that’s a common occurrence for many people. But there are a lot of things you can do to try and snap yourself out of it. One of those things – and this isn’t scientifically proven as far as I know – is singing along to your favorite music. But I like to think it’s a good idea to take it a step further. Why not learn how to sing (or how to sing better if you already have a bit of a nice voice). That way you don’t have to just sing along to your favorite music, you can make your own music.
Now there’s definitely no need to learn how to sing like sinatra just to write a couple of songs. There’s no doubt that people all over the world can’t sick a lick but are amazing songwriters. And there is some catharsis in songwriting, I’ve found. But the truth is, your music and lyrics are so much more gratifying when you can sing them in a moving way.
Now of course, even if you can’t sing, you can really get into it and as long as you’re not shy you can sing your heart away wherever you are. But some people don’t want to display their voices to the public, and choose not to sing loud out of self consciousness.
So why not just change that and learn to sing better! It’s really not that difficult to learn. And the thing you have to remember is that you’re not stuck with the voice you have. So even if your voice sucks right now, you can get better with singing training. The best way to learn how to sing is to use singing lessons online. Deviant Noise is a great place to find ones that you enjoy. They’ve got great reviews, like this one on the Superior Singing Method.
Another great option for anyone that wants to learn to sing is to take a looks at the singing success program.
If you aren’t interested in learning how to sing then you want to make sure that you’re able to get over your self consciousness so you can really belt out your songs when you want to sing.
