Truly anyone can improve their singing voice! There are rare cases where people may be prevented from singing because they are born with deafness or where a person has suffered some kind of damage to the larynx. However in most cases, when people claim they can’t sing, it’s really a case of them not having confidence and training in how to use their voice. The good news is that better singing is within your grasp! Yes, there are factors that involve nature and nurture. For example, some people are born with better voices. Also, growing up in a musical environment with lots of exposure to singing from an early age can make a big difference.

Humans are capable of singing from early childhood right through to their senior years. However, it’s important that the training methods and song choices are age-appropriate. Also, the teacher should be skilled or specialised in working with the particular age. At every stage of life, voices have unique needs. Young children have less vocal stamina and are often better trained in groups and in children’s choirs. Teenagers may be experiencing instability and some embarrassment due to physical vocal change . Adult singers vary tremendously in their musical tastes and how quickly their voices respond to training.

This is a common question with no easy answer. Your progress is affected by factors such as: (1) where you are starting from – your current vocal ability; (2) where you aim to go – your vocal goals; (3) your level of commitment to training and improving your voice; (4) how skilled your voice teacher is; (5) how quickly your muscles respond to training; (5) your practice routines. Total Voice Studio tailors our vocal training to the needs of individual voices. This means you should experience progress within a few lessons. The more you continue to train and practice, the deeper your understanding and faster your voice will respond. In his book, Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell proposes a now popular theory that it takes humans approximately 10,000 hours or 10 years of practice to become an expert in a particular field. That’s pretty daunting, but just remember you don’t have to be an expert to be successful or to enjoy singing.
