Pop Singing

Singing in a pop style is probably the most recognised style of singing today.
It's easier to learn than styles such as jazz, opera and musical theatre.
However you only have to watch TV programmes like American Idol and ITV's X Factor to realise that many untrained singers think that they can sing and try to sound like their favourite pop star.

This of course is part of the appeal for these reality TV shows where they have even been known to win television awards in the "comedy" section.

Listening to some of these horrific individuals trying to catch the judge's attention by either dressing weird or trying to perform crazy dance routines while they sing is my favourite part of the show.

I'm quite sure these people hear their chosen artistes voice in their head while they are singing and I often wonder if they've ever recorded themselves and hear what the rest of us hear. I don't unerstand why they don't get singing lessons and learn to sing properly instad of using gimmicks to try to make them successful.

I find it amazing that the contestants who say "I am the next idol" and boast about how good they are, end up being the contestants who are laughed at, while the contestants who come across more modest and down to earth are the ones with really good voices.

Most young singers ambition is to be a pop star with all the glamour and glitz that goes with it. However few realise the work and dedication it takes not to mention a great deal of luck to get to the top of their career.

Yes singing in a pop style is easier than other styles but no matter what styles of singing you decide to pursue, the basics are all the same. You need more than a few singing tips from other singers to learn how to sing well.

You still have to learn to sing in tune, breathe correctly, pronounce vowels correctly and use vowel placement as a means to project the voice.
All in all it's the people who realise this early and learn proper technique that eventually leave the others behind.

There is more information on this subject in The Singing Tutor program.
