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.
Singers are a funny breed. If you asked many singers about the correct way to sing, 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, 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.
