Record yourself singing along to a song.

Listen back to your recording.

Take notes on the following points:

Are you in Tune with the music? - your notes should match the song.

Is your voice weak or strong? - shouting is NOT Singing!!

Are you breathing correctly? - you should not be short of breath

Do you struggle to reach the notes - pick an easy song to start with!
