Thanks for reading. I'm a beginner and I don't know anything about theory. All I'm doing is trying to imitate and repeat as much as I can. Can someone please tell me how to practice smart and where to focus my efforts? Here's my last record:

I know it doesn't sound good, so thank you for listening.

    Especially with voice, I suggest focusing your efforts on a part-time job that will pay for a good voice teacher. Using the wrong techniques the wrong way can damage your voice, so better to invest in professional assistance as you're getting started so you can sing for a lifetime. – Todd Wilcox Nov 22 '17 at 14:39

I do recommend a good teacher also. Nevertheless, it's very helpful to read a book on vocal pedagogy, such as Richard Miller's The Structure of Singing, or Barbara Doscher The Functional Unity of the Singing Voice, or the Vennard Singing: the Mechanism and the Technique, or also McClosky Your Voice at It's Best (which is a lot more readable for a beginner).
