Can * ANYONE * Learn How to Sing?

Can anyone learn how to sing?  Or is the ability to sing well just something you’re either born with or not?

As a professional singer and vocal educator for over fifteen years and counting, this has got to be the question I hear more often than any other.

The mouth opens, the sound comes out, and it either sounds good, or it doesn’t.  It’s something that “comes from inside of us”; either you’re “born with it”, or you’re not.
Non-singers look at people who can sing well with a sort of reverence, and often times, people who already sing well look with a similar reverence to those who seem to have more natural talent than they do.
“How the hell does he hit that high note and make it look so easy?”
“How is she able to hold that note without running out of air?”
“Why can they project like that, get such a powerful sound? They must have been born with a really strong voice…”

The fact of the matter is, like ANY ability, some people are born with more of a natural and untrained knack for it than others.  But that doesn’t mean that those without that initial capacity can’t develop it.

I, personally, was a lousy athlete all through grade and middle schools.  I couldn’t hit a baseball or throw a football to save my life.  But some of the other kids were great at it!  So, I thought that sports and athleticism were simply beyond my reach of attainable capabilities.
