When you are in love with someone, it feels like your heart is so full you can just burst into a song. So, should you do it? How should you do it? Below are a few tips you can consider if you want to sing songs to your girlfriend.
Should I Really Do It?
If you feel confident enough to do it, I say go for it! Singing – or in this case, serenading – has always been one of the most touching displays of romantic affection. Dedicating a song to someone requires you to look deep into your heart and search for your true feelings to choose a fitting song. Doing so also makes for an emotional rendition.
What to Do in Preparation
So you have finally decided to sing from your heart and you want to do it well. Don’t worry; I have got all the tips you need right here.
1. Take Some Lessons
This one is almost a no-brainer! Taking singing lessons will, of course, improve the quality of your voice and, in turn, the quality of your song. You do not have to go in-depth with voice lessons, a few live sessions with a vocal coach or a few lessons online can do wonders! If you want something quick and easy, I would recommend 30-Day Singer. You may also check here to learn more about online singing courses!
2. Create a Suitable Environment
Would your partner like to be serenaded in public or would they prefer a more intimate setting with just the two of you in a more private location? This is something that you, as her partner knows. Make sure that she will find the place private and romantic so she can focus on you and the message of your song, instead of worrying about the location and the people around.
3. Set the Mood
A romantic gesture deserves a romantic mood. Nothing can go wrong with a few sweet words, a few candles, and a bunch of flowers. In fact, setting this kind of mood will only improve the way your partner receives this type of display of affection and the amount of thought you put into it.
4. Pick The Right Song
Alright, so there are millions of songs to choose from. How do you pick the right song? There are three things you should consider when selecting the song. First, it should be something you both can relate to. Is your love carefree and fun or is it more intense and deep? There are many different songs for different types of love. Pick one that both of you can relate to the most.
Second, choose a song she knows or is familiar with. This way, she can easily sing with you or get a feel for the lyrics. Otherwise, she’ll be wondering the entire time what or who you’re singing.
The only exception is when it’s an original composition. In this case, you tell her ahead o time.
Last but not the least, can you sing it? Although there’s nothing wrong with choosing a song you like, even if you can’t sing it well, you want to aim for a good performance too. Then again, you can also go for a different arrangement so you can sing any song comfortably and sound good.
5. Acapella? Musical Accompaniment?
Decide whether you want to sing with or without musical accompaniment. If you can both sing and play an instrument like the piano or guitar, this adds bonus points to how dreamy you are being right now. But what if you still want to sing but do not know how to play any instrument? Consider searching online for instrumental versions of the song you have chosen, hook it up to a speaker, and carry on with your serenade!
6. Ask a Friend for Critique
I know. You want it to be a surprise. However, it might help your performance if a friend you trust can watch you sing and give you feedback. Choose someone who can keep it hush-hush.
No harm is done with more practice. Sing to yourself, record it so you can play it back. When needed, work to improve it until you feel like you are ready to sing. Be careful not to overdo it though! You definitely do not want to lose your voice right before your private performance.
