To get to an excellent level at anything – you need to spend 10,000 hours engaged in that endeavor. 10,000 hours divided by 8 hours a day is 1250 days (3.4 years). This is confirmed by many very successful people. Remember this.

note the BPM, and the key before practicing a song

listen to artist alone carefully,

sing along with artist at reduced speed listening only to artist, loop hard to sing parts for concentrated listening practice

sing listening to your voice and artist voice at same time and at normal speed and recording your voice. Then, listen to your voice alone. It should sound very close to the original artist.

sing with backing tract, record, listen back to your performance, repeat.

when practicing a set of several songs always sing each song two or three times before moving on to the next song

sing multiple songs in sequence with little break between songs – a set

The song of the Day – sign one song ten times, one after the other
