It has been my dream to sing for so many years, but where do you start. I know that sometimes one can get discouraged and think that you can never reach you’re goal, but keep on reading.


Well, I started of at joining a singing school. This was the best decision I made, because you need someone to guide you to use your voice to it’s full potential and they give you a chance to sing in front of a crowd, where you can grow and learn. This is where you grow as a performer and “get out of your shell.”

You can always get some voice exercises from the web, there are some great ones that even the well known singers are using like the exercises of Brett Manning.

You can also visit a well known recording company to record your songs on cd and promote yourself this way, by selling them. Also do remember that if you don’t write your own songs, you need to take a look at SAMRO’s website, because if you copy other people songs without permission, it is stealing.

Do you need get signed for a contract?

Don’t be stuck on getting a contract, with video blogging and blogging these days, you can advertise yourself and who knows, if you are well enough, someone will find you. You must just stay positive and keep on loading those songs. The signing of singing contracts are overrated in any case, what they actually do is to take a big bite out of you’re money.

There is just one thing, ask other people about their opinion of you’re singing, I have heard some people who think they can sing, but as they say, they are just completely “tone deaf“, they can’t hear that they are not singing on the note or even according to the melody of a song.


So, if it is you’re dream to sing, don’t give up, just keep on dreaming and step out and do it, a dream stays a dream until you put it into gear. Singing is my passion and I am living it!!
