We are all born with an innate capacity to project our voices and communicate every nuance of emotion . Music is at the core of our culture and as human beings we are in possession of a unique and expressive instrument. All birds can sing and human beings are no different. Singing is wonderful therapy and it can also be one of the most moving and important art forms as well as holding an important role in many spiritual practices around the world and throughout history. Occasionally we lose touch with this intrinsic ability and feel for various reasons we cannot sing as well as we’d like. There can be a real yearning to re-discover our voice, and to do so can be a great joy. It may take time and patience, but along the way there will be many glimpses of the great gift that is one’s own unique vocal instrument.
It’s extremely rare to be ‘tone deaf’ . We all learn to speak through mimicry and can communicate with subtle nuances of pitch-but often through formative experiences we can become nervous of singing with the degree of physical commitment needed for correct tuning. ‘Singing in’ a song is an extremely important first step for all professional singers, where the simple process of repetition creates a muscular memory of the tune within the body, in the same way that dancers learn choreography.
