I want to learn to sing but….?


I can play the piano and guitar but i want to learn to sing. Im inspired by gary barlow and robbie williams :P. But. When i say i should learn to sing to my family they just take it as a joke, and i think it would be a bit embarrising practicing at home, when i havent had lessons or my first few lessons. Im a 14 yr old male and im not really sure if my voice has dropped yet, cause it doesnt sound deep, but then again some adult voices arent that deep, so i dont want to sqeek when i go high, or when my voice drops id have to pratice lots again. (Also i want to be famous in music, and yes i know not many people make it big )

Any advice :S
I would practice myself but if would find it a tad embarrising, so id do it alone, but thats not often :(

When I’m older I want to be a rockstar.Am I wasting my time thinking about a silly fantasy that wont come true?

I am 14. My idols/heros are all rock stars.
David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Slash, Keith Richards, Steven Tyler, etc…
I play guitar. I’ve been playing for 1 year and I practice like hell. I am going on to grade three in Easter next year. And I have just done debut a month ago and got distinction (If I may say so). :)
anyway, for the past year I have been dreaming of being a rock star like my heros. this may be a little awkward seeing as I am female. but, hey, there was tina turner. and janis joplin.
I am in a band. 2 bands actually. I play bass. and a bit of guitar. but they count for almost absolutley nothing seeing as they are school bands and all we do is play at school concerts. although one of the bands almost got a gig at a pub but the drummer couldn’t make it.
The reason I say rockstar, rather than musician, isn’t because of the money or fame. Well. I guess you could say that… anyway, the reason I said rockstar is because I love playing to crowds. I love the feeling of it. I did one school concert with the ever-so-radical-school band and there was maybe 200-300 people in the room and it was amazing. even though they all just sat their eating their crisps. it was still amazing.
Am I wasting my life? should I concentrate more on the more boring lessons so that I can have a boring, normal job when I am older?
I just don’t want to live the way everyone else lives. drive into work. sit in an office all day. paperwork. drive home. shower. bed. every day. that just seems a waste of a living.
when I get out of school. I’ll be seventeen. I want to go to college. And I plan to get a band started then. but, who knows. this is like four years away. things will have changed.
should I just give up now, and realise that this is never going to happen? even though I want it more than the whole world?
I want to bring good music back. God knows if I can do that. but I want to try, all the same.
do you think i have a chance? or am I just another 14 year old who is dreaming about something that will never happen?
I know rock stars don’t live perfect lives. when did I say they did?
I just want to make music and perform music as a career.

Guitar Lessons: Who Plays A Brass Instrument?

I’m 18 and I was wondering if I am too late to play the Saxophone (Alto)? Can I? I can already play the piano and the guitar. But now I want to play the Sax because I love the sound of the Alto Sax, I really want to play it but at the time I felt I wanted to play it, I never had the money for lessons (I don’t want to ask my parents to pay because they’re helping me with Uni so…). I’ve been working and I’ve saved up quite a lot especially in the summer. Now that I can afford the lessons and buy the instrument (not an expensive one, I’ve been looking), will I still be able to learn a new instrument? Or will it be too difficult now…

Guitar Lessons: I Love Music So Much, Could I Go To The Royal Academy Of Music?

Hi, i am 15 years old in my 10th year in school. I already play the guitar and i can play most of the solo’s out there, but i am not so interested in the guitar. One month ago i bought a piano and i have always been fascinated with it since i was a child, but u never had the chance to lay my fingers on it. The first day i got the piano, i played for seven hours straight, since then i play at least three hours a day. I can play the moonlight sonata- Beethoven,Toccata-Paul Mauriat and i also began composing piano music. My mind is obsesses with this, and this is all i would want to do. I also take piano lessons from a Russian woman

If i keep practicing allot for the next three years, could i have the potential to be accepted at the Royal Academy of Music in London?

Guitar Lessons: Should I Get This For My Birthday, And How To Pursuade My Mum To Get Me It?

you may have seen my previous question about me wanting to be in a band when i’m older? you may not. but i do. i’ve always wanted to play bass guitar or the drums, but i imagine the drums are too loud for my mums liking so they are ruled out. it’s my 14th birthday on the 16th of september and i still don’t know what i want, so hey presto, a bass guitar. here are the simple questions i need to know.
should i get one?
are they hard to play?
which one should i get?
do you think i should pay for lessons at school?
do you play bass, if you do, how long for and are you good at it?
how do i persuade my mum to let her get me one? just to let you know she isn’t the type of mum who will just buy me one without saying, she needs to know everything first.

i would be so so so grateful if you could answer these.

I’m 14 and I’ve been having a hard time with my friends. They seem to be always putting me down and making me feel worse about myself (less pretty, less skinny, a worse singer, rubbish at guitar) and my mum has been really good with me, but recently I’ve seen another side to her, and now I feel like she’s against me too. She’s been telling me how much she weighed when she was my age, what her waist measured etc, and it’s almost as if she’s trying to show me how much better she was than i am. I weigh eight stone and now I’m starting to feel like I really need to lose some weight, which I know isn’t healthy. But it’s not just that. I showed my mum an essay I had worked all day on and she told me it wasn’t very good, when i was really proud of it. I played hockeey for my school today and she told me I didn’t play very well. I was sitting strumming on my guitar casually the other day and she said i wasn’t playing it right and that she was ‘a hell of a lot better than I am and she didn’t even get lessons’. And every time i sing she listens intently and tells me I’m singing the complete wrong tune. She also keeps telling me how much my friends have achieved, and how better they are than me, (how much taller and how much nicer they dress). It’s really getting to me because i felt like she was the only person I could trust and now I feel like she’s just as bad as my friends. I don’t know if I’m just overreacting and my mum said i was just being too sensitive when i told her, but i’ve lost all of my confidence ( if i ever had any to start!) and it’s gottten to the point that i’m crying myself to sleep every night and I’ve become really antisocial, i cant keep up with the dieting and what not that my friends are into. My mum is so nice to me most of the time, but at other times, i just want her to support me in the things i love doing, and encourage me. She says i quit everything i start but really i only stop because she makes me feel like i’m not good enough to continue trying. Please help- Am i just over reacting or is everyone really turning against me?!

Guitar Lessons: If I Started Teaching Myself Bass Aged 15, Would I Have Started Too Late To Ever Make It In A Band?

I’ve recently started getting into rock music and going to a few rock shows and I’d love to be in a band and play shows for a living. I’d want to play bass, but I don’t have a bass guitar yet, however I have a guitar that I’ve been teaching myself on for a few months and I’m getting a bass for Christmas. But have I started too late if I’m 15? I’m very determined, I spend loads of time playing and practicing but I don’t know anyone that plays any instruments or sings that I could start a band with. Oh and I don’t care if the band never makes it big, I just want to play shows and maybe tour. And will I have to take lessons to have any chance of being in a band?

I don’t like practicing my instruments if my parents can hear me?

I play guitar, bass, piano and flute.
I love playing guitar, I try to practice as much as I can because I want to be a guitarist when I am older. I have been playing for 2 years and I am on grade four. I normally practice at school where my family can’t hear me, but at the moment I am off school for two weeks and I really want to practice, I just hate doing it when my parents can hear me. I don’t know why, but I can play infront of audiences of 300 people, but not infront of my mum and dad. I can’t even pracyice in my room, beecause I am worried that they might hear me. I guess the reason is because I am embarrassed. I know that for the rest of the week they’ll be telling me how sweet it was or how good I am. (I’m not that good, but my dad was telling me how brilliant I must be when he asked if I could do vibrato and I said yes).
It was the same when I learned piano. Infact that was the reason I quit. In my house we don’t have a keyboard, we only have a proper piano so wherever anyone else is in the house they can still hear me. I really want to play the piano better, and I hated having lessons because it would have meant that I HAD to practice. I want a keyboard so I can practice with headphones, but I realise that they are very expensive.

Sorry, I doubt that that rant made much sense. Ca anyone help?

Guitar Lessons: No Desire To Do Work. Just Stopped Caring?

OK its hard to explain. All my life Ive been working hard in school and listening in lessons, handing in homework etc. But the last two and most important years which actually count, ive just stopped. I dont know why. I know I need to work hard, my grades are the lowest theyve ever been, I dont listen in lessons, I dont work and now Im two yeard behind on work which I need to hand in next week.

Ive got some sort of mental block, the second I pick up a book or something, I just put it down and do something els and try to block out the fact that I have work to do. usually I pick up my guitar or play a game or something.

Ive asked a few questions and people have told me I suffer from anxiety/depression. Its a logical explanation since I feel like crap 99% of the time.

What the hell is wrong with me? Plus I have a crap report meaning I wont be able to go to college until next year.

Guitar Lessons: Thoughts On My Singing? X?

I have been singing since I was very young and I’ve taken professional lessons for 5 years. I’m 15 years old and I also play guitar and piano. I am also thinking of entering the X factor when I’m 16 :) x

Can you give me your thoughts on my singing and advice that will help me improve?

Thank you,
God bless,

Guitar Lessons: HELP: Which Instrument Should I Learn?



www.dolphinstreet.com Here’s a lesson for 2 short blues guitar licks. These work great over a slow blues. This example is played in the key of E. Full TAB in PDF and Guitar Pro files are available from www.dolphinstreet.com I used a Hagstrom Viking through a Marshall Class5 for this demo.

Hello!

I’ve always wanted to be able to play an instrument skilfully.

The only instrument that I mastered straight away and found easy was Drum-Kit, my teacher told me I am talented and have good coordination and a good music-ear.
I love playing the drums and I know it’s perfect for me but I can’t buy it as it takes too much space and too expensive.

I want to play a different instrument that I can be able to buy and practice in my own time! Also one that is possible to teach yourself how to play it as I can’t afford lessons.
I have bought a keyboard before but as I didn’t know how to play it, I got bored with it and returned it. I guess I should have kept it and learnt from YouTube videos or something ^_^”

In school, everyone knew how to play the guitar so the teacher taught our class songs but I hardly knew the chords so I was totally lost and clueless. If maybe I knew more about the basics then I would be good at guitar..

I have no experience with musical notes or whatever and cannot read music..
But I really believe that I am able to play an instrument.

I’m not sure what instrument to learn. Advice?

Sorry for being so long and boring but I will truly appreciate your help.

I want to start playing music, but I don’t know what to play!?

Hey everyone! I want to start playing an instrument, but I don’t know what I want to play! I have 2 main choices, guitar or bass, trouble is, that guitar is probably harder, but you can be more diverse. Bass may be easier, but you can’t really make your own song with it… Which would you advise? I’m open to other ideas, as long as they’re not wind instruments!

P.S. I’m 15 so could it be too late for me to start playing. And I will no longer be able to have lessons without paying a ton of money for them, so I would be mostly home teaching myself from guides on the internet…

Guitar Lessons: How Can A 14-year-old Become A Famous Singer?



Михаил Старостин : vkontakte.ru Урок по правой руке : www.youtube.com

OK, if you’ve read my other questions, you’ve probably worked out that my true desire is music.

I have been having keyboard lessons since I was 10, I have a Grade 3 certificate, and because of this, I also have the ability to play a little piano. Furthermore, my mother gave me one of her guitars when I was 12, and I’ve been playing it almost everyday ever since. Finally, I have been told by many people, all through my life, that I have an amazing voice. Even though I play keyboards and guitar, my biggest joy is singing. I’ve always had the dream to be on stage in front of thousands of people, and to show them that I have a gift.

Last year I got the chance to audition for the X Factor, because they lowered the minimum age to 14. However, when I asked my mother if I could audition for it, she threw away my chance by saying, “No.” I had that feeling that you get when your heart drops down and it starts racing, and in the end I was so upset, I ran to my room and cried into my pillow. My first bad comment, and from my own mother! She lowered my confidence, way down.

But a couple of weeks after, although I was really worried about what would happen if I didn’t, I auditioned for a solo in the Christmas concert at school. I got the solo, and I sang in front of over 200 people. I was really nervous when the spotlight hit me, but there were some other girls in my year in the audience, and when the concert finished, they told me they were shocked by me.

My confidence has been getting higher and higher ever since then, and now I really do feel that I can be able to perform again. My RE teacher is a church singer, and she’s created a songwriting group at school, and it came to no surprise to her that I joined. I’ve already written a couple of songs, and all my friends say they’re really good. My mom still won’t let me audition for reality shows like Britain’s Got Talent, so is there any way that I can become famous without going down that path?

So, I really like this boy…?

Jim Hall part1


I feel so lame writing this, aha.

I met this boy on a sixth form induction day (UK). He was only in one of my taster lessons, but as soon as the teacher said his name I was like, woah. I LOVE his name, it is the nicest name I’ve ever heard. And he was AMAZING on the guitar, so I was like, double woah. And I sort of fell in love with him after hearing him play the guitar, aha. Stupid I know.

So I got home and searched the origin of his name – like, what country. And I found his twitter and a link to a blog that he has, and I’ve pretty much been speaking to him through the blog, but anonymously. He doesn’t know who I am yet aha.

It’s pathetic, I’ve never even talked to him in person, but I really like him.

He has my email address, but can’t accept until he comes home, I don’t know how long he’s going to be away for.

But, I don’t know if I want him to know who I am. I mean, he seems really nice when I’ve been talking to him, but I don’t know if he’s one of this guys who only likes the girls who are practically perfect.

I mean, I talk to him about music on the blog – he likes EXACTLY the same bands that I like. And he’s put that he likes girls who have a decent music taste, but I just don’t want to tell him who I am if he only likes girls, as I’ve said, who are perfect.

Thanks.

Guitar Lessons: Do You Need Experience To Study At The Royal Academy Of Music?

I know it probably sounds silly but I’m really really interested in going there to study (btw I’m only 15 at the moment and in yr10 at school) … The only thing is I really can’t afford lessons in playing instruments and I can only play a tiny amount of the guitar

I’m interested I’m studying the violin or piano there but I can’t play them :( can you start from scratch at the academy ? I really want to persue a career in music from here and I don’t know if I have the opportunities. Thanks for any help in advance

Guitar Lessons: Is Life Trying To Teach Me Something? And How To Stop Being So Angry?


Please answer both questions.

1) Well reviewing my life i was kicked out of all extracurricular activities that i joined.
e.g i got kicked out of music clubs and lessons because i was crap so i taught myself to play three instruments guitar, violin and piano and my friends say im good.

2) I never get picked for stuff at school they always give it to the loud mouth popular girls
but outside school i get casted for theatre productions and local plays.

3) In school my grades aren’t noticed even if they’re the best everyone notices the dancers and singers. Although outside school i participate in science fairs and scholars clubs.

———————————————————————————————————————————————
Second question

2) Since for the above i didn’t get into all these clubs and things
– I didn’t get head girl of my school.
– I got kicked out of clubs.
– My grades are never noticed.

They always notice the singers and dancers and loud mouth girls. That makes me so angry why don’t they give stuff to me. Why am i so crap to get kicked out then left alone to learn myself. I hate myself and i want to kick the teachers for all of these things they did to me.
sorry its long
im 15 and female

Guitar Lessons: Which Rock Instrument Should I Play?

My dad said he would look in to some music lessons at school or elsewhere for me but I’m not sure what I’d like to play. It’s either guitar, drums or bass guitar. I thought about guitar because I’d be able to practise at home but then I thought I’m not exactly great at reading music. I didn’t do too well in keyboard assessments in Year 7 at school but I’d be more than willing to learn. Then I thought drums but I can’t fit a drum kit anywhere BUT I would be more likely to be better at drums. What should I do? I’m in to metal/screamo bands like Your Demise, Parkway Drive, Asking Alexandria, Deez Nuts and Pierce the Veil btw.

I keep getting butterflies in my stomach, but I’m not nervous about anything.?

This started on the day of my first driving lesson, which was about a week ago. I was waiting for the instructor, with a serious case of butterflies. I thought it would all pass away once I got through my first lesson, and when I was doing it, it did pass. I had a lot of fun and my instructor was very nice, but when I got home, almost immediately it started again. It’s been about a week, and I still get butterflies every night, sometimes it’s so bad I don’t feel good at all, and in the morning I can’t bring myself to eat because I think I might throw up. I don’t understand. School just started, but I’m not nervous about that. I love the driving lessons, they’re quite relaxing and enjoyable, so what can it be?

I noticed one thing that calms me down is playing my guitar, but that’s probably because I’m not thinking about the butterflies.

i can’t concentrate on anything any more?

hi, i’m 13 and a girl, and recently, my memory has become really bad (i’ve already asked a question on here about this) but stuff seems to be getting worse. i can’t concentrate in lessons, or at home. at school, being in high sets i’m expected to listen and pay attention, but i just can’t concentrate of focus on anything. i constantly feel the need to talk to people. i find almost every lesson that i use to enjoy boring (maths, science, french, german, history, geography ect.) and the only lessons i still enjoy are drama, music, art and english (i’ve always loved these).
as for at home, i’m constantly listening to music to keep myself entertained. i’ve always been a musical person, and i would love to become good at an instrument. since a young age though, every time i’ve tried to learn an instrument, i’ve become bored of it. i’ve tried clarinet, violin, keyboard, drums and guitar, and i’ve always got pretty good at them, and then got bored.
this is like what’s happening alot recently, i just can’t focus on anything and become bored and get distracted very easily.
why could this be? and what could i do to stop it?
thank you for any answers in advance :)
oh yeah… i’m not sure if this is relevant… but i’ve been seeing things too xP
in case you’re wondering, i saw a person with a black cape/cloak, and a couple of weeks later i saw my hamster on my pillow (it wasn’t actually there… i think)…
don’t worry, i wasn’t high on either occasion :’)

Guitar Lessons: Where Should I Start For Learning To Play The Drums?

So I’m 15, 16 on the 3rd July, I don’t play any instruments and I have barely any experience except randomly strumming a mate’s guitar and all that xylophone and keyboard bullshit you do in school. All my life thus far, one of my dreams was to be in a band. Now, I’m not particularly wanting to learn the drums for the sake of joining a band, I just want to play initially, but yeah, when listening to music I always did the air guitar and shit like that and thought it would be a good idea to learn.

However, as I matured ever so slightly and kinda paid a little more attention to how music is played and put together, I fell in love with bass and drums. Mostly in rock and metal. My favourite would be the drums, as you may have guessed from the subject of this question. I’ve been looking around different websites and other questions on this site, about people wondering the same thing as me, but none of my individual questions have been answered, so here we go:

1. With no real experience practicing an instrument at my age, could I start learning and become significantly better within the next few years?

2. If I did happen to join a band, would I get a lot of p*ssy? No, I’m joking. Seriously though.

3. What type of kit should a beginner like me get? Any brands, types of set, or links to examples would be perfect. Preferably anything under £150 for my first, I guess. If a decent set will go for that cheap.

4. I’m looking to play anything from indie rock to punk rock to heavier types of metal, and, within time, insane stuff like power metal. Is there anything in particular I should get for this? You could answer both this and question three together, that would probably make sense.

5. For some reason, I don’t think I’ll be up for going out to lessons at a local music place or something. Would I be able to half self-teach myself if I used online lessons etc.?

That’s it for now, although I may edit it if I have anymore questions. Hell, answer within the next 10 minutes, and I’ll make all your wishes come true.

Guitar Lessons: Yo Who Is Looking Forward To Da Iommi/Miley Album?

I read a interview wit Tony Iommi and he said “Well when I heard Miley I thought what a beautiful metal voice she has, I can see why she is the Metal Queen, so I got my management to contact her and she refused at first as she thought my guitar playing wasn’t up to her standard and fairly so, but I managed to persuade her under the condition that I get some lessons from Nick Jonas, he is a wonderful teacher and I can now play guitar better than ever thanks to him!”

Who agree dis album will be off da hook?
