Record yourself singing along to a song.
Listen back to your recording.
Take notes on the following points:
Are you in Tune with the music? – your notes should match the song.
Is your voice weak or strong? – shouting is NOT Singing!!
Are you breathing correctly? – you should not be short of breath
Do you struggle to reach the notes – pick an easy song to start with!
Are you gasping for air between phrases – learn to breath in the “rests” between phrases
Record yourself again with another song
