Sing out for confidenceJune 21st, 2010 by Emily
Since X Factor and Britain's Got Talent have become must-see TV, it seems like everybody wants to sing. Singing is seen as a way to become rich and famous and escape ordinary life.
Actually, the truth is that singing is for all of us. It's for ordinary people and singing can be incorporated into all of our lives. Shows like BBC2's The Choir have shown us what a great effect singing can have on people's lives when they come together to, well, sing.
Perhaps you are a little lacking in confidence at work or in other areas or your life. You might be nervous talking in front of groups of people, or feeling generally more shy than you'd like to. Singing lessons can actually boost your confidence and self-esteem.
Several studies have been done to show a link between prowess in singing and academic achievement. Did you know that when children learn to sing, they often achieve better results in maths as well as music? Singing works areas of the brain that can help us in everyday life.
If you or your child already plays an instrument, then learning to sing as well can be fun as you can accompany yourself. This is particularly true for guitar and piano players.
It's never too late to learn how to sing and it's something that can bring to much pleasure into your life. First Tutors: Music lists many quality singing teachers across the UK. Why not start your adventures in song today?
