Learning to sing can be scary – especially when you’re doing it alone.
As a beginner singer, you don’t know what you don’t know. And scouring the internet for random singing lessons can be overwhelming and unproductive.
For that reason, today, we’ll be going through the 4 CRUCIAL skills that will drastically improve your singing.
This guide will help you not only know where to start your journey to a better voice but also understand what to look for and how to improve, even when working on your singing alone.
So, without further adieu, let’s dive in.
Your voice is a muscle, and like any other muscle in your body, it needs to warm up before exercising. Having an established routine before you sing will make you sound better, have a bigger range and avoid strain or injury.
And the best part… in just 7 minutes, you can get your voice warmed up and ready to go.
When you’re singing in the shower or three beers in at your local karaoke bar… have you ever tried to hit a super high note and then accidentally ended up sounding like a dying turkey?
Well, that’s because you attempted the brave task of singing outside your range. Thankfully (for you and your neighbours), vocal range is something that CAN be worked on and expanded. It only takes a little bit of practice.
As part of this step, I also have some FREE goodies for you. Click the links below to start exercising your voice and increasing your range. You’ll be able to find both high and low-voice versions. Simply pick the one that suits you best!

Exercise 2 – The 5-Note Pattern:
One of the most common questions I get has to do with pitch. People will tell me they “don’t have pitch.” However, like any other aspect of your voice, pitch is a muscle. And like such, we can work on developing it.
Basically, the process of training your pitch involves teaching your brain how to communicate with your vocal cords. That way, they will sing the note you identified in your head. Kind of like playing darts… Your brain knows where the dart needs to go, but it’s challenging to communicate how strongly and in what direction your hand needs to move.
This one relates to the previous point.
Singing is not all about your vocal cords. It’s also about your ears. They work together to help you sing beautifully… and even tackle harmonies!
If you know the notes to sing, you can sing most anything…
Not only is ear training key to having good pitch, but it also is a requirement for harmonies. I would say this is the skill to take a beginner singer to the next level.
If harmonies have ever felt intimidating to you, this guide is an excellent place to start.
Having a REAL person teaching YOU is the best way to guarantee you’re making progress and not just going in circles.
