Three Key Steps to Become a Better Singer & Songwriter

Every day, I talk with people who - through no fault of their own because no one has taught them - lack the basic skills needed for the job they want to apply for, which is becoming an effective and commercial singer and songwriter. Hit me up at larry@ninenorthmail.com to discuss these steps for advancing your goals!


Here are the three key things you need to improve your singing and songwriting skills:

  • Practice. The more you sing and write songs, the better you will become. Set aside some time each day to practice, even if it's just for a few minutes.

  • Passion. If you're not passionate about singing and songwriting, it will be hard to stick with it and improve. Find ways to make it fun for you.

  • Perseverance. There will be times when you feel discouraged or like you're not making any progress. Don't give up! Keep practicing and learning, and eventually, you will see results.

Here are some specific tips for practicing singing and songwriting:

  • Sing with good posture and breath support. This will help you sing more comfortably and with better control.

  • Train your ear using solfege. This will help you develop your sense of pitch and rhythm.

  • Warm up your voice before you sing. This will help prevent vocal strain.

  • Sing in different registers. This will help you expand your vocal range and versatility.

  • Deconstruct the songs you love. Analyze the lyrics, melody, harmony, structure, rhythm, and mood of the songs you love to learn how they work.

  • Learn music theory. This will give you a deeper understanding of how music works and how to create your songs.

  • Permit yourself to be creative. Don't be afraid to experiment and try new things.

  • Try journaling or freewriting. This can help you generate ideas for songs.

  • Go to shows or watch videos of live performances. This can inspire you and help you learn from other singers and songwriters.
