8 steps to become a singer

First, you’re already a singer. Only 1% are truly tone-deaf. The rest of us can learn how to sing. While some people are naturally gifted, almost everyone can sing if they desire to.

Here’s the important first step:

Believe in yourself, and your dreams

This is what you must keep in mind from the beginning. While there will be those who support you, there will also be those who question your decisions. You have the power to make these choices, so think about how to respond to those who might question your decision.

Being able to leave my desk job and never return was one of the proudest moments in my life. Your future success story is what you should be focusing on and the only thing that matters more than everything else. It will feel great to have it.

Be positive when you feel doubtful.

Sing better

It doesn’t matter if you are the greatest singer globally, but it does help!

It could be the difference between success and failure for some singers. It’s a great time to take a chance with an advantage that doesn’t exist 10 years ago.

  • High-quality online singing lessons.

These are cheaper than hiring a private singing instructor. There are many great options.

Once you’ve mastered the proper technique and are confident that you have the dedication to becoming a singer, you can move on to private lessons or an online tutor via Skype.

  • Lessons are the best thing I did for my singing.

After years of being a singer pro, I decided to take another singing class in 2012. There are many advanced classes available, as well.

Sing as often as you can

Do not wait to take a few lessons before you start singing. Sing wherever you can. In the shower. Karaoke. Jam nights are a great place to go. You can also learn backing tracks at home. Learn to play the guitar and sing along.

Even the most experienced singers can sometimes misunderstand the workings of the voice. Warm-ups are crucial. It is not enough to introduce before you start singing for two hours.

  • Regular singing exercises your voice.

You can keep your voice in shape by singing every day. It will become stronger and last longer if you keep it working hard.

Good technique, regular practice and warm-ups are three of the most important elements for healthy singing. Many other factors can be overlooked, such as staying hydrated. I provide a free email series and e-book to help you get started.

Notice: Stop singing if your voice is tired or strained after singing a lot. Rest your voice. Singing is a good thing. But don’t over-sing.

  • Sing as loud as you can

Vocal training is not enough. It’s not enough to be singing on stage. You may be unsure at first how to do it. It’s not easy to make money doing it. Karaoke is an excellent starting point.

  • You can sing outside your comfort zone.

Keep doing it. You will need to be able to perform in other situations. You don’t have to read the words. Maybe with a live band, or in a new venue. These experiences will influence how adaptable you become in the future. Sometimes, you will have to perform and may not hear your voice. Some days you will have lots of space while others you’ll be squeezed into a corner of a room.

These experiences will make you more comfortable under pressure and better equipped to handle any challenge the world throws at you.

You will gain confidence and enhance your stage presence. This will help you get exposure, build your resume, and improve as a singer.

Make sure to have a “go-to” song.

You should have a song that you can do every time. It should be your “go-to” song. You will nail that song no matter what you feel at that moment.

  • Select the right song for you

It should be something everyone in the audience is familiar with and enjoys to be there from the beginning.

You need it to fit perfectly into your vocal range so that you don’t strain for notes, even if you forget to warm up. It is important to be able to sing the song without difficulty. You must be able to read the lyrics.

You should sing this song if you are limited to one piece in a showcase. This song can be used to regain your confidence if you’re halfway through a set. This song can be used to open a show if you’re nervous.

You’ll eventually build up a list with “Super” songs so that you always have something to fall back on.

Mustang Sally has been done enough! The song that everyone does is not going to impress agents. Be unique and stand out.

Learn To Embrace Rejection & Criticism.

Be prepared for people not to like you singing before you take the stage.

Even recently, I was subject to insults on stage. I do this because it is my job. Justin Bieber has millions of fans but is hated by many.

It’s difficult to please everyone, as with many things in life. If you are put down half the time, someone is jealous or insecure. Keep doing what you’re good at. Continue to improve and ignore rudeness

  • Learn how to recognize and ignore criticisms.

Since constructive criticism can help you improve, honest and constructive criticism is essential. This advice should not be given to you by random people. Ask other singers for advice. However, you should not be afraid to ask for brutality.

Friends and family are always there to support you. Sometimes being too supportive can be detrimental. Experienced people are the best source of advice.

  • You must have thick skin when it comes to rejection.

The singing industry is competitive. Rejection can be a learning opportunity. You shouldn’t take someone’s rejection personally.

It is easy to believe that it must be because you suck. It could be that “we needed someone blonde to fill this role” or “the other candidate has worked for us before”.

  • Ask yourself why you didn’t get a job or an audition.

Sometimes, there are very simple reasons why you can’t get hired or pass auditions. Sometimes it is a good idea to ask the reason. You’ll feel much better if it’s something you can’t do anything about. You’d be able to correct it next time if it was something you did wrong.

  • Criticism and rejection are both essential learning experiences.

Although it may seem difficult to hear that you are singing out-of-tune or your tone is poor, vocal training can help you fix both. Vocal training can even teach you the perfect pitch!

I can guarantee you that you will never succeed if you aren’t willing to accept criticisms and work with them. Only those who strive to improve advance. There will be mistakes. Everyone does. They will teach you. You will never improve if you avoid learning from them.

You don’t have to accept criticism.

Get to know people who are doing more than you.

You need the help of others who have more experience to learn how to become a singer.

It is easy to believe that you will one day be “huge” and become the karaoke king of your local bar. You might be able to make it happen. But, you should expand your horizons.

  • To find more contacts, expand your network beyond your existing one.

Your chances of success are greater if you have a larger network. Your chances of getting opportunities are greater if your network includes successful people. There are many opportunities.

It is who you are and not what you know. This is especially true in the world of singing. Even if you are the world’s best singer, it is not enough to have the right contacts to succeed.

As a novice, the most difficult part is approaching more experienced people and expecting their help. You may not know how to make contacts if you’re starting.

  • People who don’t know your well should be willing to help you

Acceptance is best achieved by letting go of your ego and focusing on the person you want to learn from. You can say, “You’re such a talented singer, and you are clearly doing very well. What’s your secret?”

Most singers will not be suspicious of flattery and will be happy to speak with you about your career as long as you’re sincere. You’ll be able to help other singers once you have formed a friendship and proven your talent.

Setting achievable goals

This is what you should do. These goals need to be specific and small.

  • A good example: If you want to sing to a crowd of over 100 people in 3 months, find a way and work hard to make it happen.
  • Bad Example “I want be a famous musician” While this can be your ultimate goal or dream, it is not a practical step in the path to success.

You can set many small goals. Step by step. It can be overwhelming to develop a too large and difficult plan to reach. Each small goal should be a step towards the big goal. It is the prize at the finish, not the stepping stones along the way.

Your first job is paid.

It doesn’t matter if you get paid to perform live, host karaoke, or sell your music online. This will give you confidence. Getting paid will prove that you are capable of doing this.

You’ll be able to find work as your career develops. When you understand how to become a professional singing artist, you will have the business acumen and mentality to sing every day.

However, if your goal is to start your career, you may need to do as much work as possible to get hired and gain experience.

  • Start singing for free to find paid work.

Offering to sing with your local band or theatre for free is a good place to begin. You can add live experience to your resume, it will help you build your confidence, and you’ll probably make connections with people who might be able or able to assist in the future.

If you can do a first gig free of charge for clients who have repeat work, it is okay. Any follow-ups should be paid gigs. If they like you, they will pay.

  • Recognize the value of your voice

After you have proven yourself and reached a level that people enjoy, you can start getting paid. You could get paid by selling your album or venue for the entrance takings, or even a flat fee.

You are doing a disservice to your fellow professional singers and yourself if you continue to perform for free after becoming a skilled performer. Venues should not be paying for high-quality entertainment if they feel they deserve it. This is bad news for all singers.

Recording a demo is an important step in getting paid to sing. Although this may only be a rough recording of your live performance, you should consider registering your voice using a better quality sound. 

What’s Next? Get involved

You can become a professional singer once you have started singing for money. This is no longer a hobby. The next step is to increase your singing income and get paid regularly. This is possible in many different ways. The internet makes it easy to make money singing.

Make a goal now

Everybody wants to be a singer, but everyone is on a different stage. Regardless of your plan,

  • Perform your first song on stage
  • Find a job that pays
  • Participate in a singing contest
  • Record yourself singing and upload it to youtube

You should set a date for reaching your goal. You can choose something you can achieve in one month or something that you can achieve in six months. 

Make a list in your calendar, and make sure to act.

It takes dedication to become a singer, but it is rewarding.

If you have a mentor, it’s easier to reach your goals. I’d love to help you improve your singing skills and show you how to make more money as an artist.
