How may I start learning music if I already know a little be?

How may I start learning about music and how to sing healthy? From where? Do I really have to start from zero?

Thank you comment icon Every singer has started their career from step zero. Many singers joined bands to gain experience. Many bands record demos, and you can gain recording experience singing on the demos. Listen and study music that you appreciate, paying attention to as many of the musical elements of a song that you can. Once you are at the point in your singing ability to enter a recording studio with a producer, the best producers coach you through the recording. You will not be alone. They are there to guide you throughout the entire process! Many professional singers also listen to and emulate their peers to gain inspiration and ideas to use to help create their own personal singing style. Myron Edwins
Thank you comment icon I would start by acknowledging the true art you wish extract from the practice of self reflection. Vincent McGinnis

Haley’s Answer

Embarking on a musical journey, be it for a professional career or a leisurely hobby, the first step is to identify your genre. Each person's voice is unique, and this uniqueness can align more with certain musical styles than others. You might find your voice resonating more with country music, rock, or even both. The exciting part of this process is the exploration of different genres and determining which ones harmonize best with your voice. You might be surprised by the genres that end up being a perfect match for your voice.

Let me illustrate this with my own experience. I was raised in a region known as "The South" in the United States, and as such, my voice has a hint of that "vocal twang" common in country music. With my light and high-pitched voice, I can also pull off songs from the pop genre and certain types of rock music. However, the genre that truly astonished me once I started to explore the full range of my voice, which turned out to be a bit lower in pitch than I usually allowed myself, was swing music (think Judy Garland or Frank Sinatra). I had never imagined that I could sing this genre until I started listening to Frank Sinatra, thanks to my late uncle's music collection that included this iconic artist.

The quest to find the music genre that complements your voice is an adventure in itself. It aids you in discovering the true depth and range of your voice, which can be challenging to identify when you rely solely on generic tutorials on YouTube to "find your true voice". Moreover, it gives you a reason to explore genres and artists you might not have considered before, potentially leading you to uncover some new favorites along the journey.

There are some self-taught musicians. Anyway, music is complex and it requires professional knowledge as well. Of course, you can better your skills also by yourself, but if possible, attend a music school or take different courses related to the field. It will only be a great contribution to your career.

Steve’s Answer

Well for starters there's no end to learning music once you thing you know something, another thing will then pop up. But from my experience so far, I went to school for music for a little bit of time. I Then realised college just didn't fit my style at the time so now (yes still learning) I am using youtube and other outlets to find the answers to my questions and for me to learn. Now don't get me wrong school is great I recommend it for sure. The knowledge I recieved from college in terms of music theory, audio production, music business, DAW, sound recording etc, really helped alot. First figure out what you feel is the right path. School or "Learning as you go" (Thats the best way I can put it since there is so much to that) or if you want learn both. Also ask yourself what area of music you want to learn first. You dont have to learn everything all at once, take your time. Research research research no matter what. Once you figure out what you want to learn and how you want to learn it just start researching and planning things out. Like the best trade schools or colleges. Or the best influencers and teachers on media. Or even best websites. No matter what just go with the flow of your heart. Only you know what you are ready for. Sometimes all you need to do is to take the leap.
