How to Learn Singing – Before You Begin

Before you begin, listen to a lot of different songs in many genres. This will help you settle on a style that best suits your voice and personality. Do you want to sing rock music? Opera? Maybe country and western or rhythm and blues suits your style best.

Next, start practicing to find your natural vocal range. Sing a note that you can comfortably hit. Then sing progressively higher notes until your sound quality decreases. Go back to the first note and then sing down the scale to find the bottom of your range.

This is an informal exercise, but it will help you get an idea of which notes you can comfortably sing, and which ones you need to work on.

How to Learn Singing – Self-Study

Many vocalists teach themselves to sing. Learning to sing by listening to other singers, without formal training, is called ‘singing by ear’. While some classically trained vocalists frown on this approach, it can lay the foundation for strong pitch recognition.

The problem with learning to sing by ear is that you can develop bad habits that are difficult to break later in life. Professional lessons can be expensive, though. Many singers find middle ground by using self-study courses.

Self-study singing courses typically contain videos or audio files that guide you through warm-ups and vocal exercises. They can help you expand your lung capacity, control your breathing, increase your vocal range, and sing smoothly across your vocal breaks.

If you decide to go this route, read reviews before you purchase a product. Some systems are better than others, so user reviews can be very helpful. You can find self-study singing courses online, or at your local library or book store.

How to Learn Singing – Professional Help

If you would prefer to do your learning face-to-face, consider signing up for singing lessons. Look for voice coaches in your area, or get a referral from friends who have had a good experience with a particular instructor.

If the cost of voice lessons is a little steep for your budget, try joining a choir at your school, church, or community center. This will give you access to an instructor and other singers that you can trade tips and techniques with.

How to Learn Singing – Advanced Techniques

After you’ve spent some time practicing, you might decide that you really enjoy singing and want to do more of it. It can be a little daunting to sing solo when you’re accustomed to singing with a group, but a little practice will decrease nervousness.

You can use your self-study course or your instructor to learn advanced techniques like perfecting your head voice, reaching into your falsetto range, and developing a vibrato. You will also learn to read music and transpose your favorite songs into a different key so that you can sing them easily.

Now you know how to learn singing without putting a huge dent in your bank account. Have fun experimenting with different musical styles and gaining confidence in your voice!

What Do Our Dreams Say About Us?

If you thought this was gonna be some informational shit then you are gonna be disappointed, because I am just as confused as you. Literally I wake up and the first thing I say is “what the fuck”. That could be for 2 reasons, one being the dream and the other being the fact my body had the audacity to live another day. But today we are talking about reason one. And then I always hear people saying that our dreams say things about us and here I am searching up “what does a dream about a dinosaur flying in mars with King Kong say about me?”. Please tell me I am not the only one because I never really have normal dreams. I also find that if I do have normal dreams, they are really boring ones. Like one of them could be me doing an exam but then the invigilators are elves or something.


I also wanted to ask, am I the only person who has never lucid dreamed before because my friends are all talking about how they were like aware they were dreaming and then went on to do so many things, but I must be dumb as fuck because no matter how weird the situation is, I just vibe and it doesn’t click with me until later on when I am like “elves aren’t even real”. I don’ know, am I just weird. I would be scared though if I lucid dreamed because can’t things go wrong like they try to kill you or something. That sounds like such a joke but I swear I heard that before. I would also be so fucking boring. I could be talking to a unicorn or something and then be like “wait this is a dream!” and then it would just be me and him looking at each other doing that awkward smile and looking around really awkwardly and then I would just go for a walk or something. It would be embarrassing though if you were like OMG I am gonna try and fly, and then all you do is jump and you can’t get anywhere, then it is just you and the unicorn staring at each other like what the fuck now. Not me literally getting embarrassed by something that hasn’t even happened and it would have been in my dream anyways. Why am I talking about this, this is completely off topic, anyways, let’s get into it.


How is it that our brains are like “i am depressed” and then it is like, if I make the dream about a lion walking in space, that will surely let them know they need help. The fuck? I be needing a bloody English teacher to analyse each atom of my dream just to know what it’s about. How can that literally link up. And then there are dreams that I get that are so complex and so weird that I actually have no fucking clue where to start. Like the other day I had one about me in school doing a project and then somehow I got into a huge shouting argument with my ex and I was left in tears. Then I was packing up and I was the only one there and when I walked outside I had actually been in my house so now I was in my street walking down the road like I was the main character in a breakup movie. Then my teacher came driving down signing some type of song and these guys from my class where knocking on people’s doors and just talking to random people and then out of one door, the same teacher that had been singing just shouted “RIOT” for no reason and I woke up. I also think that in this dream, or it was another one, I don’t remember, there was this whole scandal where the teacher was like “if you pass the test I will tell you who I kissed” and then it turned out she had kissed her fucking cousin or something. That was really weird to be honest and if you are some sort of dream person, am I completely messed up? Because that would explain a lot actually.


Dreams are weird though, aren’t they. Our brain just makes up images based off our thoughts and emotions we may not even realise. And they are smart as fuck. Our brain can remember every single person we lay eyes on even if it was for a split second. Like where does that energy go when I need to revise because right now I don’t give a fuck what that old man looked like! I need to learn fucking Pythagoras theorem. But I guess that is useless as well lol. Although, our brain also can’t remember the dream we just had a split second ago. I could wake up like “this is was the best dream, everyone needs to hear it” but then it is just gone. My whole memory of it just literally scuttles away and I am like what the actual fuck. Why does it do that? Are we just no meant to remember? What sci-fi, government, alien type shit is this because I really wanted to remember it. Another thing that confuses me is when people say that “you always dream, unless you are dead”. But I swear there are nights I didn’t dream. Did I die? Was that fact fake? Did I just forget it? I need answers people! I also need to know why we dream. Why is that just a normal function that happens because soon enough I am just gonna start believing the movie “inside out” soon. How are we able to project images in our head and be present during them despite the fact we are asleep, and then there are times that we sleep walk and sleep talk. I have actually sleep-talked a lot and I recorded it a few times. It is safe to say I did not release any secrets. Well unless “wellgosjflasnlgnllkjlj” means something to you.

Anyways, I think I will leave it here for today because I am not up for an existential crisis today. Maybe later though. I also wanted to say that I am probably going to start a podcast soon for this blog because I generally don’t know how to word things in a way that makes sense on the computer. Basically it will be me reading these posts but adding in extra topics that jump into my head. I will try to keep them shorter but I usually do ramble on about the weirdest things, so look out for that I guess. Anyways, if you are excited for that, make sure you leave a like, comment and follow so that you know when I upload my first one. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself.

Society Is Preventing Your True Potential – Beware The Trap

It’s weird how our view on work changes throughout our life. As a child we are told that we can be anything we want to be. This motivation was drilled into our mind from day one but then slowly over the years our dreams sound so… unachievable. And I mean why wouldn’t we think like that? Our parents and schools condition us to believe that we need to get great grades, go to university and get a 9 to 5 office job if we want to succeed. And if you ever have a dream, you better hold on tight to it because they will knock that down until there is not even a spec of hope.

It is sad how, when people ask you what you want to be when you are older, we all have a safe answer. We know that if we tell them the truth, they will laugh in our faces and make that wish feel like more of a dream and less of a reality. For me, my ‘dream’ job would be an actress. Not just because of the fame and money, but because I really like to act and I think that if I got a chance I could go far. And then with that position I can use my voice for good. Like with Emma Watson talking about feminism, and Leonardo DiCaprio talking about global warming. So what I would love about acting is that I could fulfill my passion for acting and then eventually my passion for making the world a better place. But have I told anyone that? No. I live in Northern Ireland which makes that dream seem so much more unachievable because there aren’t many opportunities. So now what I have to do with this dream is to keep it hidden because I mean I am just being to ambitious. There is no way that could happen to me. I am not that special. What I also don’t want to do is give them the satisfaction of being right when I don’t have the success that I wanted.

So what do I tell everyone then? Well, I tell them I want to be a police woman. And while that is true, it is also my safety job. This is my job that I know I can achieve and that will be respectable. I know it will give me the money I need for a home, food and security. What I also know is that, as a woman, I can find someone who I will love and will be my husband, hopefully. Because what we are grown up to believe is that, to be successful you need to get a safe job and be married. And I know how messed up that sounds but it is true. We learn that marriage is a safety belt, instead of learning that it is a bonus. We don’t need to be married and have kids. Unless you find somebody you truly love and you feel the time is right to have kids, then don’t get married. This is your life and you shouldn’t have to live it for someone else. But yeah, I mean I would love to be a police woman somewhere in the world because I want to make a difference. I want to be a part of the new definition of ‘police’ because right now, most police officers are racist, power driven people. Lately I have questioned whether or not I should be a police woman because I don’t want to be associated with racist murderers, and I am still trying to get my head around it, but I want to become a police woman in the aim to outnumber the racists and to provide a better role model for young children who can be heavily influenced by this prejudice.

It is weird also, the term ‘a successful job’. I mean what is it really? A doctor? A lawyer? A politician? I don’t think I have ever seen their name with the label ‘successful job’ written on it. A ‘successful job’ is just like saying a ‘normal human’. There is no normal human because we are all completely different. Really a successful job is not what your parents or society define it as. It is whatever is your passion and whatever you love doing. Say somebody who really loved writing books and poems. Their successful job is a writer, a poet. Not a lawyer or a office manager. And it is so easy to get sucked into these ideas because we see and hear them everyday. In school, on Instagram, our parents. So why wouldn’t you listen to them. These are the people who have raised us. People we have been with our entire life. That we trust. One of my favorite phrases was said by Prince EA. He said,

The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled

Prince EA

And I don’t know why but it really hits hard. Probably because it is true. All the time you hear people getting knocked down for following their dream, and now you are scared for that to happen to you. You may think that it is too risky, or you aren’t good enough, but have you tried yet. How do you know those questions are true if you haven’t tried? Society have drilled these questions into your head and that is the thing holding you back. If you can push through that fear of failure or criticism then you are on the path to success, wherever that may be.

My last point that I will mention today is that work should not be the reason you are on this planet. It is sad to see how some people’s lives are just, grow up, go to school, get a job, retire, die. It pains me. Because then you are working your whole life for your future, but what is your future? I mean when you will retire it means you will have a roof over your head but you can’t do all the exiting things you wanted to do in the present. If you work all day, everyday, then all the money you are planning to have will be wasted. It will be safe in the bank, but what is the point. You will have no memories, you will have no stories. Nobody’s purpose in life is to sit at a desk all day and type in a bunch of 1 and 0. No ones. And right now, if you think it is your life, it is not and you just need to take the risk, have fun. Be rich in memories. Instead of graduating university and feeling down because ‘the best years’ of your life are over, make that the ‘beginning of the best years’ of your life. Get a job you enjoy, do what you enjoy and face any problems that come your way because the world keeps spinning and there are people who will support you and love you.

Thank you so much for reading this blog and I hope it helped you to open your eyes about the lies we are told throughout are life. Do what makes you happy and ignore those who don’t agree, they just jealous PERIODT.
