Now let’s assume you’re doing the voice training either by using voice training products you’ve downloaded online or with a private tutor in-studio or via Skype, one of the most essential elements people tend to forget is your musical diet. Put simply, what kind of music do you listen to? This article will discuss probably the most overlooked key ingredient to developing your musicality.

I talk quite a lot about this in my book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach, and in a recent voice note to my predominantly Tanzanian WhatsApp group I talked about the lack of a good musical diet as being one of the reasons why a lot of millennial generation youngsters, especially in Africa, are failing to grow their talent. Cos, whether you like it or not, the kind of music you listen to plays a major role in developing your ear for music and style. Now, I’m not saying you can embody the total singing package by just listening to great music, you’ll still need the training.

So: assuming you ARE already in training, your next step is to soak in all of the great stuff released in the 70s, 80s and 90s. Why? Because back then, they had no computers and therefore it was either you CAN sing or you can forget about a career in music. Up until the 00s a record producer couldn’t correct your pitch and auto-tune your vocals from start to finish to disguise your inability to deliver a simple note. And hey, let’s face it: they made really good music back then.

And so I have decided to publish on a daily basis (if I can keep this up), my recommended old-school essential listens to help you get started with consuming a vibrant, colorful and rich musical diet that comes from a bygone era when the music was SO GOOD it will live forever!

I have already started publishing my recommended list of 70s, 80s and 90s music from disco to pop, soul, R&B, jazz, new jack swing and MORE on my Tumblr here. And from time to time, I shall be blogging some more on this topic. Enjoy!
