Singing: how can I get started?
These days, you can get your first inputs by simply watching some youtube or instagram videos. If you feel ready to take it to the next level then just start with a voice check.
Sing your favorite tune
Prepare one or two of your favorite songs. Preparing means memorizing the lyrics and the melody as well as you can. Sing along with the original song for a while until you feel comfortable singing it along with a karaoke track. (You`ll find these on youtube or on websites like www.karaoke-version.de ). Once you feel comfortable with this, it is time to set your first voice check appointment.
Let your coach know which songs you would like to sing and in the ideal case, bring a copy of the lyrics with you or send it in your online session. Your coach will most likely give you lots of feedback and will make notes for you while you are singing.
Last but not least, your coach will check your vocal range and do some exercises with you to check how fit your voice is.
Getting closer to your goal
After all this you will get reliable feedback about your present level. You`ll be asked what your goals are, then you`ll get a general timeline about how much effort and time you would need to reach your goals.
You`ll have some personalized exercises to work on right away (every person has different areas to focus on). Which already get you started on your way.
Every voice is unique!
