Can't sing?

A staggering number of us believe that we can't sing and will often make the proclamation of being "tone deaf". In reality, only 4% of the population may suffer with a condition called Amusia which is a "clinical tone deafness". Amusia can be genetic or as the result of a head trauma or other injury/illness of the brain and typically people suffering with this condition wouldn't necessarily want to participate in music or singing in the first instance. 

If you are reading this, then the odds are that you are in the 96% of people who can actually sing! 

Now, I'm not saying for a second that 96% of the population have the ability to be the next Pavarotti, however numerous studies have shown that singing, or participating in singing is an extremely healthy thing to do. It's a great cardio workout, it stimulates the brain and can help with mood and mental/emotional wellbeing. 

The reality is that many of us are afraid to sing because we've been told by somebody significant in the past that we're unable to, which is pretty damaging to be honest. I'm passionate about helping people to discover their singing voices, for themselves and not for anybody else. I really believe that most of us can sing and derive a great deal of pleasure from doing so, even if it's just in the shower or around the house, so if you're curious about your voice and want to have a go, get in contact with me. I promise to listen to you without judgement and give you honest advice as to how you can move forwards with your singing.
