    Being a better singer means that you should take face-to-face voice lessons with a qualify voice teacher. Here are some tips about finding a voice teacher:

    The teacher has an excellent ear, and carefully listens to, and gives you accurate feedback about your voice.

    Has an understanding of vocal anatomy, including the respiratory muscles, the larynx and throat structures, and how they affect singing.

    Allows you to tape record lessons or exercises in the lesson for take-home practice. Provides you with written exercises when needed.

    Is professional in conduct yet personable. You should feel comfortable with this person. You should feel free to ask questions.

    While being emotionally supportive, he or she should be able to challenge you to grow as a singer at the same time.

    The teacher should be able to explain to you in depth why you are doing each exercise that he or she gives you.

    If available go to a recital where this teacher's students are performing. If they mostly sound great then this is probably a very good indication of a competent voice teacher.

    Avoid teachers who only take on students who are already professional vocalists. A good teacher can train any voice and would enjoy the challenge of doing so.

    The teacher shows genuine interest in you as a singer.

    The teacher understands vocal health issues including the need to drink water and monitor the speaking voice

    Addresses the need to relax those tensions/muscles that can block good vocal production and vocal freedom.

    Is emotionally stable and does not intimidate or talk down to you.

    Your voice feels easier and more resonant when working together

    Here are some tips about how to determine if you're a good singer:

    Perform for your family. You've given yourself your best shot at finding out whether you can sing: you picked a song within your range, learned out to sing it using the right technique, and practiced until you had it memorized. Now it's time to put your voice to the test in front of your family.

    Perform in public. There are many opportunities to perform in public: you can go to an open microphone night at a club or lounge, sign up for a talent show, or do karaoke. Find a venue that works for you and prepare to sing a song for strangers.

    As you sing, watch the crowd's reaction. They aren't as invested as your family in making sure you walk away with your self-esteem intact, so you may be able to get a better sense of whether your voice is easy on the ears.

    Have a friend in the crowd ask some strangers whether they thought you were a good singer. Random strangers don't always appreciate being polled, so you shouldn't place your singing future in their hands; just collect opinions and continue taking steps to determine whether you have a good singing voice.

    Busk. Another way to get feedback from the public is by busking in a train station or in a busy shopping area. If you can, set up a microphone and a small amplifier so that people will be attracted to your singing. You can sing for free or set out a hat or bowl in front of your setup to make a little cash while you conduct this personal experiment.

    1. Don't use facetwerps or youtube to confirm your thoughts;

    2. If you don't know that you're either bad or good singer, I'd start with working on your musical ear: try some basic piano lessons (why piano? long story short: it's the easiest?); passages, ranges, that kind of stuff;

    3. How to find your vocal range: start with C minor, go up - when you hear breaking or squirking, stop. Go down: when you hear your voice breaks or lowers volume, stop. To expand, go to the highest/lowest note, and train with it. Of course, you won't go beyond the point where you "just" can't go on further, but when you're a beginner, you can still train and expand your voice.

    4. Yep, you can also sing to a recorder, either w/out music or do a sing-a-long or karaoke, and then listen and study - it's not a bad thing to hear you loose the note here and there, a bad thing is to not improve it.

    If you want to be a better singer your confidence is enough. You have to full confidence on you and have to work with it. Besides, you can take your practice daily and specially in the morning. Follow some good singer and contact with a person who can know more. Always sing with your open sound and remove your shy.

    Do you sing in front of people and do they tell you that you are amazing? If not, then you're probably not a good singer.
