I've watched aspiring singers pop into my studio for singing lessons over the years, and I've seen firsthand how working with what you've got is the best approach. Not everybody can be the best in the world. There's no such thing. Ever! But you can do it your own unique way, and do it properly, AND get away with it. Now with that in mind, I'm going to suggest a few simple tricks that can, if you exercise a lot of patience and perseverance, improve your voice beyond what you know to be the limit of your ability. Try listening to good music! Seriously, this may sound a little patronizing but it CAN do wonders for your voice. Allow good music with great vocals to surround your home. Put the music on very low volume when you go to bed and let that whisk you into the depths of sleep. Your subconscious mind will pick up the music while you sleep, and with time, you may become the singer you want to be by simply listening to great music in your sleep. And if you combine this with a proper vocal training program by day, you will tremendously improve your singing voice. Of that I am certain.
I'll tell you an interesting story. I've got a young student whom, when I first heard him sing I thought, for crying out loud this dude is good! He sounded amazing. Yes, he needed training, and he knew that he did, but then he already had a natural talent. When I dug deep into his past, I discovered that his dad had been a DJ in the 1980s and that when the kid was growing up, not only did his dad play music from the 80s, 70s and 60s around the house, the boy went to bed with the music playing in his bedroom throughout the night on low volume. Henceforth, the music and singing style became him. That was the foundation that this lad had had from a very early age. The bottom line is, if you listen to good music (AND you have a bit of talent), you will become it. You see, the truth is, you are the instrument! If you listen to the pros, you too can become LIKE the pros. The way I see it, we humans were on this planet first, and then we invented the musical instruments.
You are the instrument, learn to sing like a pro!
