Good Thursday Vocalists!
Have you ever thought about how people who like to sing fall into two categories,.. those who can sing and those who have to work at it? The truth is, even those who can sing need guidance. Singing / vocal lessons are for anyone who wants to sing well.
Even the most gifted singers take lessons. Take Michael Jackson for instance. He worked as hard at improving and maintaing his voice as he did at making great quality productions. He had a super talent even as a child. If you listen to his earliest childhood recordings you can identify some great singing but also some technique that needed improving and he did just that and took his voice to the highest level he was capable of. He improved his range to about 4 octaves and sang effortlessly from F1 to C6.
I’ve often referred to the following “rare audio. In a hotel room in ’94.” The recording was taken during a vocal session by phone with renowned Speech Level Singing creator, Seth Riggs. Yes, even Michael Jackson appreciated the benefits of vocal lessons.
So remember, if you want to sing as good as your favorite singer, they took lessons to get that great voice.
