Let's Begin with Do-Re-Mi

One of my biggest frustrations is my lack of musical ability. I took piano lessons for three years and have nothing but the intro parts of Pastorale, Für Elise, Que Será Será, Let Me Call You Sweetheart and Tarantella to show for it. Oh wait, I also know Silent Night. I started taking drum lessons, but my teacher was always late, so I ditched them for good. My husband tried teaching me guitar, but gave up 10 minutes into the first lesson. I also sing out of tune, mostly flat, as a rule. I love music though. I like teaching my daughter songs, but I’m afraid she’s learning off-key versions from me. We can’t have that. I’m seriously thinking of taking singing lessons for beginners. Why not? If anybody needs it, it's me. I don't think it's too late either. I think I can learn to do anything if I did it methodically (I'm that kind of person), seriously and with determination. I may not be a natural, but I know how to be a good student. Anyway, it’s high time I did something about this lifelong affliction of terrible singing.

Let us know how that goes. I have an ok voice, but it's unreliable as to on or off key

I loved to sing when I was younger, before I realized I had NO talent lol... I guess some lessons wouldn't hurt me either LOL
