Study music. The best singers are those who not only are able to sing on pitch but also can read and write interesting music. Knowing the very basics of reading music is a must for any singer. Study the basics of the music scales and how to read and write music. Keep in mind that every instrument has slight differences in how the music appears, but singers only need the basics unless they intend to become a singer and songwriter.
