Take Your Singing Out of the Shower

If you’ve ever thought about refining your singing skills, use your library—right? Then let’s say you want to accompany your perfectly pitched voice with a little music. You’ll need to learn how to play the guitar, mandolin, banjo, drums or even digital instruments. Once you’ve mastered your instrument, check out song writing tutorials. Finally put it all together with some audio production classes.

So how can the library help you become a musical master? Use Lynda.com, an online education company that provides video courses taught by industry experts in creative, software and business skills. Grab your library card. This subscription-based service is free to library cardholders so once you register with your library card and PIN, you’ll be on your way to becoming a better singer.

If singing isn’t what will make you famous, be sure and look over other learning modules including photography, entrepreneurship, animation, web design, marketing, graphic design and music. Search topics by skill level, duration, subject, software, company and even instructor. You will be singing Lynda.com’s praises as your personal online teacher.
