Have you been contemplating sending your child to singing lessons, or perhaps taking up lessons yourself, but hesitating because you fear lack of “talent”? We’ve got some good news for you: everyone can sing!
That’s right! While some people may be more musically inclined and pick things up easier, it doesn’t in any way mean that you can’t. Even the best and most professional singers and musicians spent their lives practising to get to where they are, so we’re here to encourage you to follow your dreams.
Here are a few facts that prove how everyone can sing, no matter what:
All children are musical
Every single child is a natural musician – observe how effortlessly they sing, dance, and make music from when they are babies. The more exposed they are to music in their younger years, the better – and yes, some babies might show a better sense of tone or rhythm than others, but this doesn’t mean that the ones who don’t aren’t musically or vocally capable.
Talent vs Skill
“Talent” is an innate ability, while “skill” is an ability that has been learnt, practised, and worked for. Although it is good to take pride in natural innate abilities which are often genetic, there is much more pride to have in abilities that you have worked hard to achieve. In fact, those who base their success on “talent” are much more likely to give up compared to those who have persevered and dedicated a lot of time to working on their ability. This is why we should focus on working for what we want, rather than simply having it.
Sending the right message
The way children view certain things depends a lot on the way they’re brought up – for example, if you never sing around your child because you’re ashamed about how you sound, then they will automatically feel that singing isn’t for everyone. Encourage your child by singing to them without caring about how you sound, and this will give them the message that absolutely anyone can sing if they want to.
