Message from Your Personal Singing Coach:

“Welcome all fellow singers, vocal coaches and singing students!

It is once again, April Fools’ Day, and I would just like to wish one and all a very happy day of fun and joy!

I remember the last time I sent out this message, it was probably 2 years ago, when our website was just starting out.

Never did I imagine that I would be able to interact with so many people from around the world, and also help you all out in your singing journeys.

In the spirit of April Fools’ Day, I would like to encourage everyone to go out there, and just have some fun with your singing.

Be it at karaoke or singing sessions, or even just informal gatherings within your family or even with your closest friends.

Just sing, have fun, be merry, wine and dine, and have a great time.

After all, we all sing to be happy, to release our emotions, and to communicate our thoughts and feelings to others. ;-p

I would like to ask that we help to ask our friends and family members to also join Your Personal Singing Guide’s NEW Facebook Fan Page

and get your friends to join too!

Joining this Facebook Fan Page will enable us to build a strong online community, and also to interact with fellow lovers of music and singing, and have more fun together!

Do enjoy the tips that I am providing for you in this 34th issue of this Ezine, and feel free to share Your Personal Singing Ezine with your friends and loved ones, or better still, get them to come and subscribe to their very own Personal Singing Ezine! I will be glad to share my singing tips and pointers with them too!

RESOURCE Webpage: Voice Care

Taking care of our Voice is almost as important as knowing how to use it well.

If we do not know how to care for our voice, we could be born with the greatest of voices, and it will be squandered and wasted away.

So, learn more about how to take care of your singing voice, and also how to continue to be able to use it in the ways that you want to.

In this way, more people will get to hear you sing, and be touched by your songs and music!

FOUNDATION Website: Singing FAQ

The easiest way for us to learn a new skill, is to actually pay more attention to what other people ask, and what other people have gone through.

This certainly will save us from undergoing the same problems that others face, and also find a faster and smoother path towards a better voice.

We can also definitely identify with those who share the same problems as us, and learn from how they overcame their problems.

Vocal Mindset Tip #2 – Singing Cannot Be Learnt in A Day

Running a music school in Singapore, I talk to people who want to learn singing everyday. However, I am curious about one common trait that many of them share.

Many people think that singing can be learnt in just 1 lesson, or even a couple of lessons!

I find this very curious indeed, because we all know that it takes a long time for us to master the piano, or even other instruments like the guitar, violin and others.

However, people tend to think that singing is so simple and can be learnt really quickly.

Some even ask me, can I learn everything quickly in just 4 lessons? Can I learn faster if I take 2 or 3 lessons in a week, and complete the course faster?

My only reply is, “Everything In Its Own Time”.

For those who have more patience and would like to start from the basics, check out the Basics of Singing below:


Perhaps it is because we don’t need to prepare anything in order to sing. We just need to use our voice, and open our mouth, and we can sing.

However, learning to sing is not really like learning how to play an instrument.

We can see the notes of a piano, and feel them with our fingers. However, when we sing, we can’t see what’s going on in our throat, or what’s happening to our vocal folds.

We sometimes are also unable to feel what is happening in our throats, because we may not have developed that kinesthetic awareness necessary to do so. And, we certainly can’t touch our vocal folds to know what is going on.

We can only base our learning from what we hear, from what we sing out, and whether it sounds nice or sounds in tune.
That is the only way we can judge if we are singing well or not.

This is why Ear Training is just so important, and we have to also develop a good set of ears, apart from just learning how to produce a good singing sound with our voice.

Our ears can help us to know if we are singing with a good vocal tone, and whether what we are doing is pleasant to the ear, and suitable for the genre of music that we sing.

Read up more about Ear Training, and how you can work on your own skill:


So, the next time someone tells you that they can teach you singing in just 1 lesson, think again seriously. ;-p

Pitching Tip #32 – Don’t Think of High Notes as High, and Vice Versa

I know I have said this before, a few times even, but this topic is so important and so useful for all you singers out there.

Do not ever think of your high notes as HIGH, or your low notes as LOW.

If you do think of high notes as high, you will tend to do the following things:

1) Raise your chin higher to the air, the higher the note you sing

2) Jut out your jaw more forward, the higher the note you sing

3) Strain your throat more, the higher the note you sing

All these are Singing Problems that we can solve, but first we have to identify our unique singing problem:


Instead of thinking that the high notes we sing are really high, think of them as normal notes within our usual singing range.

My previous advice was to think of high notes as low, and low notes as high. However, I found that it sometimes made people press their voice really low on high notes, and that can be dangerous and harmful to our singing voice too.

Today’s tip is therefore more correct, and less likely to create singing problems later on.

Think of your high notes as normal notes. Nothing too high or too low for you to sing. In this case, your head should be in a neutral position, not strained, or not too relaxed.

Look straight in front, with your eye level parallel to the ground in a neutral vision level.

Now, try to sing high and low without moving your head, jutting out your jaw or straining your throat. You will find that this helps to get you to produce sound in other ways, rather than use unnecessary muscular effort to ‘push’ your notes up higher.

You could also even try to keep the tone of your voice bright and solid as you go high or low, and also keep your stomach muscles relatively relaxed to avoid ‘over pushing’.

This does take time to master, so take it one step at a time, and don’t rush it!
