  10. By following healthy voice care, preparation and training, in no time, you
    should be singing to your heart. The purpose of doing exercises is that every
    time you sing a specific note or vowel is to consistently
    produce that same sound when you sing that note.
    The way forward is to find a singing coaching course that
    won’t cost the earth but at the same time give you the system to
    allow you to improve your natural singing voice to a level of expertise beyond any of your previous
    expectations, and this sort of singing coaching can be found on line at reasonable
    costs; much more so than having private lessons.
