In the video below, celebrity vocal coach Roger Burnley shows you how to sing in tune, even if you think you're tone deaf.
Over the years I've taught thousands upon thousands of singers, including many big stars.
And from this I can tell you undoubtedly this fact.
Everyone has the ability to sing perfectly in tune!
Now, maybe at the moment you're not able to hit your notes perfectly. You may even struggle to the point of embarrassment (You've seen the reality shows where there are some horrible notes!
But regardless of where you are now, I can assure you that it is very possible for you to become one of those singers who effortlessly hits every note spot on.
So how can it be done?
Well like with everything, it's all about one word.
Practicing is the only way you can develop a skill. And make no mistake, hitting notes on pitch is definitely a skill. (It's not a god given talent where if you aren't lucky you don't get it!)
So in that case, what should you be practicing?
Developing an internal focus will train your ears to hear the notes you are singing. And also your muscles to hit the notes you want to hit.
So how can you develop this internal focus?
Well once again, you can see these exercises being performed in the video above, but let me explain here too.
The first little exercise is to hear the notes before you actually sing them. It's a funny little exercise, and a little weird at first. But you'll notice as you do it more and more, it becomes easier to hear what notes are coming out your mouth.
The best exercise (and habit) you can practice and develop is to begin to hear your sound in the middle of your forehead.
When you do this, after some practice you will really begin to hear your sound, and it will become much easier to hit notes in tune.
As an added benefit, developing this habit will help you hear yourself better when you're performing on a loud stage!
Watch my video up the top of this page to see this technique in action, and hear how it causes almost an instant improvement.
Even if you believe you're tone deaf, you're most definitely not.
It's just that you haven't yet developed the ability to hear your notes properly, and hit them in tune.
The key to improving is to practice the two exercises I've just discussed. They will help you hear your sound more clearly, and develop the muscle memory that will have you hitting your notes in tune.
There exercises are:
1. Practice hearing the notes in your head before you sing them.
2. And practice hearing the sound in the middle of your forehead.
Do these and you'll be well on your way to learning how to sing in tune.
