12 awesome (and easy) resources to learn to sing or play guitar!

Learn to sing + play guitar via besotted blog

Another frequent skill wish that we saw was the wish to learn to sing (or be a better singer) and learn how to play guitar (I will soon be teaching myself ukulele). Michelle and I both wondered if singing was innate or if there was a way to develop it, I am pretty hopeless but our research proved it is not an impossibility!  Basically if you are not diagnosed tone deaf (often a self misdiagnosis) or are not deaf (but research says that’s changing as well) you can learn to sing!  Will you be an award winning, break champagne glass with your high note singer? Probably not, but one never knows until they try!

  1. Music and art are those things that I think we often take for granted – as in, they are the first to get pushed off the table when money is tight or there isn’t enough time – but they seem to be found abundantly at the center of our souls. Without them, life is mundane and dreary and hard. With them, even a hard life is beautiful.

    Great resource list! I’m going to add another…my husband ;) He’s carved out a great career out of being a guitarist and has been fortunate to play with some heavy hitters. He is also an amazing teacher and is in the midst of transitioning to a new platform (http://www.musiclessons.com) but does have some freebies up on an old site (http://www.stelene.com) for now. You’ll have to excuse the awful quality of the old site (yikes!) but the content is top notch!

    Thanks for encouraging us all to live our dreams! (I’m going to learn to play the cello when my kids are grown.)

    1. Nikkol, this is so amazing, I stopped by the site thanks for adding the resource! I say why wait until they are grown, at least teenagers, lol;)

  2. Oh, I know! I’ve thought the same! For now, however, I’m spending about 30 hours a week in my studio (while they are in school) doing design work, which I love. Afternoons and evenings are reserved for my “mom” career. If I could learn cello while I was playing taxi driver, I totally would ;)

  3. Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover an individual who
    actually understands what they are talking about online.
    You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and
    make it important. More and more people have to look at this and understand this
    side of your story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular since you surely have the gift.

  4. Hello There. I found your weblog the use of msn. This is a very neatly written article.
    I’ll make sure to bookmark it and come back to read extra of your helpful information. Thanks for the post.
    I’ll certainly comeback.
