Steps for Singing a New Song

Part of the Singing For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Learning a new song to sing can be intimidating, but by using the following steps, you can integrate a new song into your repertoire without much difficulty. As with any new skill, learning a new song is a process, made easier if you break it into manageable steps:

  1. Memorize the words as a story — write out the text as sentences with punctuation.

  2. Tap out the rhythm.

  3. Sing through the melody — without words — using a single vowel such as ah or oh.

  4. Sing through the melody with the piano accompaniment without words.

  5. Put it all together: words, rhythm, melody, and acting.
