The Myth of Can’t
Believe it or not, many people believe they can’t sing.
Often, this self-belief takes root in childhood when someone ‘important’ communicated this to them – a teacher, classmate, sibling, etc. Others have drawn the conclusion from a comparison to the world of celebrity singers. And some think they cannot sing because they believe it is a gift with which people are either born or not.
No matter what, the outcome is the same. They stop singing. And their further singing development is frozen.
This is unfortunate because humans are designed to sing. And the benefits of singing can literally change your life – physically, mentally, emotionally and socially.
What most people don’t realize is that you can learn to sing because it is a developmental skill – just as when you learned to walk and talk.
Also not generally known is that singing development can resume, and be successful, at any point in life – whether you are 18 or 80 years old.
