Can anyone sing?

Unless you have a real medical problem, yes, you can sing. But we have to understand every voice and every body is different, so don't expect the same results as your singer friends, you are UNIQUE. Who knows? Maybe your voice turns out being much more special!

Start with quiet humming. Gradually explore your range from comfortable low to high. As you experiment, slightly open your lips moving to a "maa" sound without increasing intensity or volume. Focus on keeping the vibration immediately behind and above your top row of teeth. Never force sound. Use your oral cavity and throat as an organ pipe to achieve resonance. After you master quiet humming and before you attempt songs, gain foundation support from the pelvic muscles and abdomen that will act like the closed end of an organ pipe. Vocal sound power eminates from the cranial bones, not from the force of exhausted breath. Powerful, healthy singing actually requires minimal physical exertion.
