A Voice Is Born

Updated: May 22, 2021

We've had some wonderful weather here in Ontario this week so I've been spending a lot more quiet time outside listening to nature and meditating. There are many birds hanging around my backyard including Sparrows, Starlings, Woodpeckers, Robins, Cardinals and occasionally Blue Jays. The other day, I noticed that a mama Starling built her nest by my neighbor's window. Her offsprings cheeped joyfully between her multiple trips to the trees and back to the nest.

There is a question that's been on my mind ever since : how do chicks learn their birdsong? Considering that each species has its own song repertoire, usually 1 to 5 versions of its native song, does it come instinctively or is it learned from their parents?

I did a little bit of research and here's what I've found out...

Science suggests it that birds have a genetic sensory template partially memorized from their parents which they later perfect by practicing and comparing. Learning by imitation to best develop the embedded song results in complex and highly elaborated melodies.

Just like male birds sing to attract females, the quality of your song with its intricacies and beauty makes you a fierce competitor.

If you are in the business of attracting an audience, this should matter to you. A lot.

Okay. You love to sing so you've done quite a bit of independent vocal exploration to find your voice. You've also watched a few YouTube videos on how to sing. So you think that you're getting better. SLOOOOWLY but surely... But are you really? Have you found your voice yet?

What does your voice say about your vocal birthing?

I am a BEGINNER singer.

I have a LIMITED amount of vocal understanding and knowledge.

Don't ask me to sing higher than a C. I can only sing in my comfortable range.

I don't care about sounding good.

My lack of vocal skills keep me from expressing myself soulfully even thought this song means a lot to me.

I suffer from stage fright because I'm AFRAID of making mistakes.


I can sing anything, we're gonna have a blast!

The stage is mine!

The sky is the limit!
