Even if its just a gift that someone has beautiful voice , but still is there any slight chance that a poor singer can be good and get a good frequency which pleases and amuses the people ?

  • A high school choir teacher once said: There is no such thing as a bad voice. You just have to learn how to use it. – General Nuisance Jan 12 '18 at 5:05
  • @GeneralNuisance well said but it Looks like a hard enough task to beat Natural Gifts as voice that binds us, voice that motivates us , voice that change us are very few in nature itself (few singers can do that [rare ] ) – TreaV Jan 12 '18 at 10:45

Some initial talent is a great help! But yes, assuming you have a full set of lungs, vocal chords etc. it's worth taking some lessons. And remember - few people think THEIR voice is 'beautiful'. Work on singing the right notes at the right time. Let beauty take care of itself.

  • Kinda confusing but looks you are implying its possible to a non singing one to be one – TreaV Jan 12 '18 at 10:47
  • If you want to sing, give it your best shot. This (particularly if it doesn't come naturally) will involve getting some guidance and doing regular practice. Most people will be able to get good enough to participate in a group. Many will go further. A few will realise it's not for them. "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit.

Perhaps look at it from a different standpoint. It's been said, and I believe it, that if a great player is given a less than great instrument to play, they will still make it sound good. That's got to be true, but at what point is the quality (poor) of the instrument going to spoil the playing?

Silk purses and sows' ears come to mind here. It's very dependant on just how good or bad the original singer/voice is. And it also hinges very much on the parameters one uses to designate 'poor singer'. So, the final answer is maybe 'maybe'...

  • ""It's very dependant on just how good or bad the original singer/voice is"" so if its really bad then nothing can happen? @Tim – TreaV Jan 12 '18 at 10:54
  • If push came to shove, I'd say in some cases nothing is going to happen. Unless a very long time and a lot of effort are spent trying. Could depend on how long one is going to live, and how much determination one has, and how much patience and time and effort a teacher is willing to put in. Even then... Not everyone is going to be blessed as a singer, just as not everyone can run fast, cook well, write neatly, etc., etc. – Tim Jan 12 '18 at 11:02
  • I suppose this is it , well said – TreaV Jan 13 '18 at 8:36

The requisite physical abilities for singing are the ability to control how slowly air is exhaled, the ability to make a sustained sound with the vocal chords, the ability to match that sustained sound to a reference pitch. Manage that, and everything else can be learned.


Yes, you just have too find you sound and practice and be you. your not going to be able to do everything your favorite singers do, so learn from them and use whats necessary. No the diffenrnce between differnt registars will help as well
