I play the piano often, and I want to learn to sing so I can play songs with vocals. If I follow the correct singing techniques (deep breaths, straight posture, relaxed jaw, etc..), and sing along to playing songs on the piano, can I learn to sing well at one point? I've been told I sing off-tone, but my voice itself has potential. How can I go about this?

Are there any online resources that can help me ?

Thanks!

What does "Singing well" mean to you? If you're attempting to go on Broadway, then definitely get lessons. If you just want to control pleasing tones with your voice, with proper discretion you may be able to get away with trial and error (although getting some form of guidance will make your life easier).

Essentially, depending on what kind of singing you're planning on doing, you can easily get away with producing pleasant tones with your voice to good music.

So yeah, it depends on what you want to do with your voice.

Make sure you do ear training so you can develop subtleties in pitch difference. No one likes a flat/sharp singer.

Here are some resources i found that can be helpfull to improve your singing abilities

I believe you should try to develop yourself whenever you can. But I think a professional singing voice can only be obtained by getting professional help/coaching.

Of course! No matter how much you took professional lessons, if you aren't singing, or practicing it then you'll never be able to learn how to sing! Keep praciting to get better!

In my humble opinion, you should try singing along with someone first. There is an online singing course with Christina Aguilera, I believe it is worth the money. I even wrote an article about it, have a read if you have a spare minute. Here's the link:

Hope this helps Smile

The thing is that one can't learn to sing just by singing , there are much more factors like :

Understand the music ,
Need to focus on the pitch
Need to sing a loud for a good practice
Sing with mixing different musical instruments.
