Learn how to sing

 Vocal Basics for the Beginning Singer

There’s a reason those “for Dummies” books are so popular – it’s because they’re so useful. If you’re the shy type, scared to open your mouth and show how little you know, invest in one of these beginners’ books, CDs and DVDs, and open your mouth to sing proudly! One major complaint of vocal instructors is those students who come to them with bad habits that they need to unlearn. With the products we have here, in our “Basics for the Beginning Singer” category, you can skip that whole learning-bad-habits thing and just learn how to do it right from day 1. How could that be a bad thing?
