Is it really true? Please say it isn’t so. Help me out here.
Is it really true that people in this day and age believe this about singing? Here are some examples posted from people on Facebook:
“U can not teach anyone to sing! It is a gift!"
“If you aren't born singing, it is like art, you can't be taught.”
“If you can sing, you can. If you can’t, why pretend”
“You either have it or you don’t. No singing lessons will help you much”
Can it really be true that people really believe such nonsense? I'm afraid many really do. Far too many.
What makes people think developing their singing voice is any different from developing any other skill?
I’ve never heard anyone say “you either have it or you don’t” about playing tennis, playing guitar, writing, or cooking. Have what exactly? What is “it”?
See, if you are saying singing can’t be taught, you are also saying you cannot learn, develop, or improve at all.
