Is a Good Voice Something You Are Born With?
Natural talent cannot be ignored. Some of us are born with an innate sense of rhythm or a naturally excellent voice. Others of us are born without this. Either way, voice lessons can help improve the students’ singing, no matter what category they fall into. Even singers with a natural voice benefit from taking voice lessons.
There are certain techniques that can only be taught – and learning these techniques early in childhood is vital. If the techniques learned are improperly taught or understood, it could cause dire consequences for the singer. If bad habits are formed early on, it can be very tough to erase and re-teach. Childhood voice lessons are very important, as the intuitive development process is best when young. Voice students who learn about vocal strength, ear training, harmony, and timing early on, tend to become more proficient singers than those students who learn later in life. That is not to say that students cannot learn how to sing at any age, just that an early childhood start is the most efficient way to go. Young students, who take other types of music lessons such as piano lessons or guitar lessons, have more of an advantage than the complete beginner due to some level of understanding of music and proficiency in ear training.
The bottom line is, if you are born with a natural talent such as singing, it is imperative you hone your craft young by taking voice lessons. Even if you were not born with a naturally beautiful singing voice, much can be done in voice lessons. You can still learn the techniques and improve your tone. At minimum, learn how to use your unique voice to sing properly.
