Learning to play the guitar is hard! I started a couple months ago and now can officially play about 5 chords. (Baby steps are better than no steps.) 🙂
Now that I’m trying to learn a new instrument, it gave me some insights into what kinds of approaches beginners should take when learning how to sing.
In this video, I’ll show you my best tips and takeaways that will help you grow your singing practice, whether you’re a beginner or an advanced singer.
It’s best to practice in short blocks of time, as often as possible (daily is best). Progress takes time. Make adjustments, internalize new sensations, but know that you might need to sleep on a new skill or technique before it clicks. It’s better to revisit new sensations every day, even if only for a little while, than to practice for several hours once a week.
Take a break sometimes! Take some time, step away, and sleep on it. Know when to call it a day when you’ve exhausted yourself from practicing too much and return when you’re physically, emotionally, and mentally ready.
Happy practice makes for faster progress. When learning a new skill don’t get down on yourself. Instead, be silly, laugh at yourself, and have fun while you’re practicing. Believe it or not, that mindset shift and positive outlook will lead to faster progress.
If any of you are learning a new skill (singing, guitar, or a new instrument), can you relate to this process? Let me know!
I hope these tips, approaches, and mindsets will help get you to the next level. Good luck!
