If you have been humming before you could even talk, you know that you were born to lead a life of music. There are plenty of options today; you can be a musician, a chorister, a backup vocalist, a voice actor or actress, a composer, a producer… the options are unlimited. If you wanted to sing however, there are certain steps you must take in order to make a career out of it, like thus:
Go to a School
Just like any discipline, music requires study. If instrumentalists go for lessons in how to play their instruments, then so should singers, learning how to play their instrument which is the voice. It is also important to take singing lessons in Hong Kong because a voice coach can help develop a rather weak voice into a much stronger one, help you broaden your range and teach you different styles. It is also good to keep up your training by attending classes because that will force you to perform voice exercises that you might otherwise want to skip.
Finding a Groove
Not everyone is versatile enough to dabble in a multitude of styles. In fact, most professional singers stick to one or two styles of music because that is what suits their voice. It would sound very strange if Adele suddenly dropped her soul music and started to sing country. So when you go for training, work with your coach to find what works best for your voice. There is a class out there for every type of music from reggae to pop singing lessons; both require a very specific type of training.
Practice Makes Perfect
If you want to be a professional singer, or you already are one, then there are no days off for you. You will have to perform vocal exercises every single day, whether or not you will be performing professionally. Most singers have a morning routine – and it has nothing to do with beauty. Since everyone sounds good in the bathroom, they will go in there and do warming up exercises and keep practicing particularly difficult high or low notes. Remember, the more you practice, the better you’ll be and the easier it will be to make the next leap.
Rest and Relaxation
Adding to all of this is rest and relaxation, without which a pro will burn out completely. Since your voice is your meal ticket, you need to take care of it. If your body is sick it will show up in your voice even if it is not affected and vice versa. Therefore, physical rest is of paramount importance, as is mental relaxation in order to be able to give good performances with energy and élan later.
