I want to be able to sing.

with 2 comments

Now don’t get me wrong, I physically can sing.  However, whether I can sing well is a different story.  Like most people, I belt out songs in the shower and sing at the top of my lungs in my room–but to me, it doesn’t sound very pretty.  Voice lessons are currently out of the question, I can’t afford them on my strict minimum-wage budget.  So my question for you, dear followers, is this: does anyone have suggestions that can improve my sound?

I have youtube’d vocal exercises, and most of them are basic breathing, solid notes, that hasn’t had any effect so far.  I’m looking for songs that can help me work on my range, fun exercises that I don’t feel stupid doing.  I would really like to be able to sing without being ashamed of my voice, and I believe I’ve got at least some potential.  I may never be the next American Idol, but I feel like I have something that I might be able to work with.

My typical songs include songs with a mid to high range, I sing a lot of Taylor Swift and the Scene Aesthetic.  I also like to sing Panic! at the Disco, but those are a little more of a stretch.  I’m more of a soprano than an alto, but I have not been able to stretch my voice to the larger notes, no matter how hard I try.  I know there are techniques I can use to help this, but I haven’t been able to find any I can accomplish.  So leave me a comment, let me know if any of you are singers.  It will be very appreciated!
