I love singing, but whenever I'm supposed to sing in front of people, my throat closes up. It's gotten worse with choir, but I still want to try to sing.


I'm not sure if I'm good. I don't think I'm terrible, but probably below average. My voice sounds too forced in recordings, nasally at times, and I just know I'm not using the right technique. It's frustrating. 


I want to have the confidence to sing in front of people and sing in choir, and I'd hope vocal lessons would help with that... but what if I'm not even confident enough to sing with a teacher? What if I'm worse than I think? What if I do something wrong, terribly wrong? What if my teacher isn't good? What if my voice can't be improved?

Hey hey, singing lessons are for improvement; if you don't start off great, that is 100% okay. Confidence is hard to get, but just trust yourself.


I'm sure you're a lot better than you think you are ^^

If you do something wrong, well, everyone makes mistakes; you just have to try your best to get past them, no matter how hard it is. 

If your teacher isn't good, find a new one!

There's no such thing as something that can't be improved; there is always something. 


I promise you that you'll do fine, try the lessons out!

The first couple times you take any type of music lesson it’s a bit awkward. Trust me, I used to take clarinet lessons back in sixth grade when I was just beginning, and trust me, it was not pretty and I squeaked A LOT. But just a little bit of practice makes a difference, it’s not easy by any means to develop a good musical and rhythmical ear with good technique, but it worked out for me. Three and a half years later, I’m first chair in two bands. Take the risk, the embarrassment is worth it in the end. And as for confidence, I definitely didn’t have any. Especially during improv solos on saxophone in jazz band. I could play fine by my self, but in rehearsals, competitions, and concerts my mind would just do blank and I would end up embarrassing myself. I honestly thought maybe I just couldn't do it. Just try your hardest, once you learn how to sing properly you’ll sound amazing.

I dont sing, but I do play clarinet. (Way to steal my thunder, Talon xD)


The best way to improve is to practice as much as physically possible. My family can't afford private lessons for me, so I learn from my peers (like first chair of my band) and look for videos on YouTube on how to improve technique. I try and find music other than the ones we are doing in band and practice those so I dont get to comfortable with only a select few songs. I try to get at least two hours a day in, but sometimes schedules dont work out with it.


Practice, practice, practice!

I've been taking voice lessons for 6 1/2 years now. If you have a passion for singing, go for it. Every singer starts off with their own problem areas to tackle, whether they be bad habits or simply a lack of confidence. Usually it's both, or at least it was for me. But that's exactly what lessons are for! If you get a good voice teacher, they will be patient and understanding with you, because they've probably been through the same things. If you listen to them carefully, and practice whenever you can, I think you'll be amazed by how much you improve in a short amount of time. And if you try it for a while and decide that it's simply not for you, then you can stop, and find something new to pursue. So what do you have to lose?


If you're anxious about actually meeting one-on-one with a voice teacher, you can start by looking up YouTube tutorials. There are plenty out there, and they'll give you some good tips and techniques that you can bring to your actual lessons.


I'm rooting for you! ^-^

I guess try to tackle certain things individually. The confidence thing will take a lot, but try practicing to toys or in the mirror to start. Once you’re ready, practice with some friends. 


As fir singing, the YouTube tutorial thing will probably help. Learning more basic things (solfege and rhythm, even though they’re not basic. At all) will probably help a bit more. Karaoke for songs you like might help you find your voice range, or help you naturally improve through practice. That’s my best advice. 


I had had to sing a very different genre than what i’ve learned to sing for an audition. I probably butchered the first third of my chances through my tripping over the gate. I should probably look next time .,.
