- To utter a series of words or sounds in musical tones.
- To vocalize songs or selections.
- To perform songs or selections as a trained or professional singer.
- To produce sounds when played: made the violin sing.
Contrary to popular (and ignorant) belief, singing is a talent that can be learned by just about anyone. Singing well does not require "natural talent" as most people believe. Any voice can prove to be a beautiful singing voice with practice and correct technique. It is because of this belief that so many people declare that they cannot sing, when in reality they have probabally never actually tried to learn.
Singing well is a product of hard work, practice, and understanding. Not a pure product of natural talent.
