“The winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come.” ~ Song of Solomon
Yes, spring is a wonderful time to raise your voice in song. This season naturally lends itself to singing — just listen to the birds outside your window.
It doesn’t really matter what kind of tunes you belt out — whether it’s an aria or a pop melody. What’s important is that you put your heart and soul into it because, as many scientific studies show, singing is very good for you!
Now, lest you think that singing is beneficial only for adults, studies have shown that singing lullabies or nursery rhymes to infants before they learn to speak may help develop their language skills later on.
What if you would like to sing but believe you can’t carry a tune? Only very few people are truly tone-deaf. So in all probability you can sing but may not know how to use or control your voice.
A good singing voice is simply a matter of training and practice, which includes learning how to use your abdomen muscles, proper breathing techniques, good posture, etc. All this is necessary not only to help your voice carry high and low notes, but also to keep your vocal chords in shape.
This way, you’ll never be out of tune!
