Q: Can I learn to sing if I am tone deaf?

A. Yes, you train and then you very soon realize that you are not tone-deaf at all – just untrained.  Very few people are really tone-deaf, although the expression is often used. The fun question to ask someone who says he is tone deaf is:  How do you know? You will find that the person is very well aware that he/she doesn't sound great? In fact, he probably hears very well. There is probably nothing wrong with your hearing. To be able to sing on key you have to be able to create vibration (sound) without restrictions.  The beauty is that you can develop this much faster than most people think. However, if you practice via singing scales I can guarantee that it will take much longer than necessary.  Also see the article on “How To Sing On Key
