Did you get defective parts when
your vocal equipment was installed?

Have you ever wondered why some people have better singing voices than others? Some people are just more gifted than others, right?
Well, yes, it’s obviously true that some people sing better than others. But it’s not necessarily true that the reason is because they have better “pipes”. Yes, there are gifted people who have exceptionally good vocal equipment. But how you use it is vastly more important than how good your physical equipment is.
Probably the majority of the pop stars you could name don’t have any better vocal equipment than the average person walking down the street. The difference between them and the average non-singer is how they use it.
We learn how to sing at such a young age that we aren’t aware of how we’re doing it. The vocal instrument can be very tricky to master. It can be fickle in the way it operates, even on the best day. It defies direct manipulation. You can’t just reach into your throat and make things behave.
But here’s a truth you can take to the bank: even if you haven’t arrived at today with a great singing voice, you can still develop one. Yep: you have all the necessary parts on board. You just need to learn how to use them better.
So stop pining for a “better” voice. You already have one. Go find a place to use and develop the one you have. Get moving and enjoy the journey!
