Hi, my name is Andy Barnes, and I am the author of The Natural Singing Method. You may ask why I would put together another singing course/tutorial, as there seems to be many on the internet at the moment. The main reason is to get good information into the hands of as many singers as possible so that they understand the basics of their instrument and they can apply it to learn how to sing better.
Singers are a funny breed. If you asked many singers about the correct way to sing or how to sing better, you would most likely get just as many different answers. While it is quite easy to understand how a keyboard, piano, guitar or wind instrument works, the human voice is much more difficult to work out as there is no easy way to pull one apart. As a result, there is much confusion over how the human voice works and there is still much we don’t know.
When I first started learning how to sing better, I was taught incorrectly, which has resulted in me having to spend many years unlearning bad habits and re-learning the good ones once I found a teacher who knew what they were doing. The thing about being taught the wrong way to sing is that a singer could end up damaging their voice permanently, even with all the technology and operations available today.
It took me three goes to find a teacher who could teach me how to sing correctly, and since then I have never looked back. To save anyone else from going through the same thing I have, I created this course that looks at the basics of singing and focuses on technique rather than just singing songs.
The real interesting thing is that the information that my singing teacher has given me is actually very difficult to find anywhere, and even if you do find it, it often is not in a simple form that is easy to understand and digest. To combat this, I have tried my best to distill the information in the simplest way possible so it can be understood by anyone, no matter how experienced they are.
The wonderful thing I love about this technique is that it is not about style. Once you have learned the technique, you should be able to sing any style you like, and the best thing is that you are singing as nature intended
It is my hope that you can use these videos and lessons to dramatically improve your voice, and eventually be able to sing freely, completely without interference.
