The first step towards learning to sing is to take face-to-face voice lessons from a qualify voice teacher. The teacher will listen to your singing and offer guidance and feedback about your vocal progress
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 togetherSource(s): I am a professional singer

Sorry, but ya can't "learn" to sing. You've either got the voice, to kick off with, or you ain't. A vocal coach can only take an amazing voice and chip away at the rough edges. They can't take a **** voice and make it sound amazing or even just remotely okay. If it's ****, then it's always gunna sound ****. Sorry about that!

You have some silly answers. Watching videos won't help you whether you want to learn to swim or to sing.
You need to take some lessons from a competent, qualified singing teacher.

I taught Voice for over 30 years, in the schools of NY State. Find a degreed and qualified teacher - they will assess your strengths and weaknesses, and help you improve. YooToob instruction is seldom any help for something so personal - they can't see it hear you, can they? With a live teacher, you will make solid progress. With YooToob - you will be lost, and risk hurting yourself. The other replies seem to be from kids - mine is the first one from an experienced professional. And FOUR adults in this family are vocal music instructors and all are professional performers as well. Good luck - but you deserve to do this the right way.

You either can or you can't it's a gift if you do. Try recording your own voice on your computer.
