Does anyone here sing?

Does anyone here sing?

Postby desideraht » February 19th, 2012, 3:34 pm

I like singing and I feel like I'm pretty good at it but I want a place to practice and be heard that isn't as... "informal" as just starting to sing at people? I was thinking karaoke or something... Has anyone taken voice classes in college? What was that like? >.>

I want to sing but I get all shy when I'm the only one singing. I'm not afraid of solos, I would just like to be a part of a medley of solos, if you get what I mean. I'm a beginner in that respect and need to come out of my shell... But I feel like I have a lot of potential. I know everyone who likes singing feels that way, so I want to put it to the test with an audience. I just don't want to be like, "Hey guys I'm going to sing now" in some random situation.

Lol this topic is boring. Please post if you're a vocalist and just share your story. :lol:

I sing a lot. Maybe too much. I sing when just randomly walking down the street, and my friend glares at me. I sing loudly in the shower. I've even arranged to sing when meeting someone for the first time, so we could both randomly start singing the same song upon seeing each other and have people stare at us, kinda like a movie. It worked suprisingly well... I've been on stage a couple of times but really nothing fancy. Singing is fun.

I LOVE YOUR AVATAR. JUST SAYING.

Lawl, thanks for the comments guys. I think I'm decent, but I know I need training.

I sing a lot, basically every time I'm listening to music and no one can hear me. I can get a fair amount of power and control out of my voice but my range is too small and a little too low for my liking. I'm currently training to increase it but it's taking time and practice.

I sing. If I want to, that is.

If you put me on the spot like my parents do most of the time, I'm a little reluctant. =_=

Karaoke will do wonders for your voice. At least, it did for mine. As you can probably guess, I'm an addict. xD

I was in a band and sung? But I can't read music or play an instrument (unless you count your voice as an instrument...). I would definitely say that it's not a talent that is worthy of listing when someone asks "so what are you good at?" for me, but I can sing and I do enjoy it a lot, though I don't think I'd ever have the courage to sing on my own lol I like to do harmonies, as a back up singer I guess :P Only when it feels like the song is PERFECT for my pitch and the key just fits do I ever try singing the main melody.

I write my own songs so since I have no singer for my band I have to sing, and my voice is THE most annoying voice ever. So... if you guys are looking for somewhere to sing, PM me. (le me being sneaky)

Thanks for sharing, guys. :'D
I have a friend who said I should go practice at the college. We both want to do Adele covers, so he says we should practice together. OMG THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME. He even has the same shyness problem that I do, so we can basically do this without judging each other. I am so excited, lol.

Yeah, I sing every now and then. Got the entire lyrics to Don McLean's "Bye Bye Miss American Pie" and CCR's "Looking Out My Back Door" committed to memory, just to name a few.

I can sing. Or used to be able to. Haven't done it in awhile. I've always been in our school's choir and participated in our college musicals (I played as Kim from Miss Saigon in one of our college plays).

I don't consider myself as an amazing singer but possibly better than average.

I can play a bit of guitar and piano as well but I can't read music sheets (all self-taught and just playing by ear sometimes). Maybe I can be better if I focused on it but I feel too old now lol. Drawing and Music are two of the hobbies I completely forgotten around 2003-2009. I got back to drawing but I don't know if I'll have enough time and motivation to get back to singing/playing instruments. I'd do it for fun at least or sing a lullaby if I get a kid someday :D.
