Oh man, what a ride it has been! So much has happened since we first sat down with Hannah to plan out the singing course, and we're all so excited that it's finally here! There is so much to talk about, so I'm just going to jump right into it!

The Course

Hannah's singing course is similar to the guitar course in that it's going to take you from having never sung a note before through to exploring and understanding your voice, developing your own sound, and working through the challenge pieces that Hannah has put together. Here's what she has to say about it:

Like with the guitar course, our goal is to continue to expand the singing course by adding more lessons, exercises, and challenges, and so it's really important to us that you give us your feedback and let us know what you'd like to see on the course!

Singing Tools

One of the biggest considerations for us when we were filming the exercises for the singing course was how we were going to enable you to practice Hannah's exercises in the key(s) you are comfortable singing in. We considered recording all of the piano backing tracks for the exercises in a load of different keys and tempos, and having a library of files on the website, but that would've taken a long time, and would've been very cluttered! We thought about it for a while, and ended up building a unique practice tool that we're really excited about! All of Hannah's exercises have been transcribed into our "Scale Exercises" practice tool, and it allows you to select the key, octave, and tempo for the exercise so that you can sing to the piano backing in a key of your choice. 

Website Changes

You'll notice a new bar along the top of the page when you're on the "Learn" section of the website. It has a guitar icon and a singing icon in it, and that's how you navigate between the guitar course and the singing course!

We have also updated our homepage and other pages on the website to reflect that we now offer both a guitar course and a singing course. 

Select Your Ability

A big mistake we made when we launched the musicisum website was only making our beginner guitar lessons free. This meant that only students who were just starting out could benefit from our free content, whereas students who have already been playing a while didn't get to learn anything new from us. If you're a free member, next time you login to musicisum you will be asked what your ability level is on both the guitar course and the singing course. The option you choose will change the content you get for free on the courses, so make sure you're honest! This means that if you have been singing or playing guitar for a little while, you will now get access to some free lessons on musicisum that will take you even further!


Our goal has always been to be as simple and easy to understand as possible - that's why we have decided to have one simple price for access to all of our courses. Just £9.99 per month. 

This means that if you're currently a subscriber to musicisum, you will immediately get access to the whole singing course without having to pay anything extra, and you will - of course - continue to have full access to the guitar course as well.

If you aren't a subscriber to musicisum, you'll have access to free lessons on both the singing course and the guitar course, and if you upgrade for £9.99 per month, you'll get full access to both courses.

To reinforce our simple pricing, we have also dropped our other subscription tiers. Quarterly and annual subscriptions are no longer available on our pricing page. If you currently subscribe to a quarterly or annual subscription, your subscription will remain active until you cancel it, at which point only the £9.99 per month subscription will be available to you if you choose to re-subscribe.

Give Us Feedback!

As well as it being really important to us that you let us know what you want to learn - if you spot anything that is confusing or missing on the new singing course, please let us know! We have spent months working hard to bring you the new course, but sometimes a fresh pair of eyes can spot little mistakes. Give us as much feedback as you can on our forum, via email, or on Facebook or Twitter. 

Thank you so, so much for all your kind comments, for helping us reach over 25,000 members, for all of your feedback, and for taking the time to learn from our lessons. It means the world. We hope you love Hannah's singing course, and all of the other exciting stuff we have to come.
