So why must every musician sing? Because every musician deserves to reach their full musical potential. This music performance lesson considers the broad benefits of singing for our mental, physical, and emotional health then goes on to explain how singing is every musician’s first instrument in the sense that singing was the earliest musical experience most of us enjoyed. The physical aspects are clarified relating to the connection between the voice and the ears and the benefits for improving pitching and relative pitch are explored. Barriers to singing are identified, including being tone deaf, or inexperienced in singing, or breaking voices for teenage boys, or reluctance to sing, or reticent tone. The benefits to expression in instrumental playing are also considered by using the voice to feel the shape of a phrase, learning how to breathe at phrase endings and much more.
