10 A Star Is Born

When creating your Sim in the Create-a-Sim menu, or choosing traits for your precious newborns, you might already have your Singing career in mind. There are plenty of great traits to choose from that can help you along the way, like Creative for inspiration, Self-Assured for when the rejections happen, or Music Lover to get the most of your musical exposure.

Avoid making a Perfectionist Sim if possible, since Perfectionists take longer to finish creative endeavors. Songwriting already takes a while, once you can begin to do at level eight of the Singing skill, so don’t make it harder on yourself.

9 Start Them Early

If you’ve got a youngster whose Singing potential you can just feel from the start, get them started on their Imagination skill as soon as possible. There’s even a Creative aspiration for Toddler Sims and then again for Child Sims that walk you through the process of becoming a real childhood prodigy.

Have your Toddlers spend time drawing, reading books, and making up all kinds of wild ideas with their stuffed animals and friends. Additionally, if they have the Silly trait, they pick up Imagination skills faster.

8 Train Classically In College

One of several new additions made when Discovery University landed in 2019, Sims who attended one of Britechester’s two prestigious universities would begin their post-grad career several levels of their High School grad peers. For Entertainers, it’s level six for the regular degree, and level seven for the distinguished variant.

The University of Britechester offers both regular and distinguished versions of the Fine Art Degree, and you might even get a scholarship beginning at level three of the Singing, Piano, Guitar, or several other musical skills. The scholarships only increase in value the higher your skills are, so get to work before you apply.

7 Learn Instruments, And Learn Them Well

Accompanying yourself whilst singing doesn’t seem like a helpful tip for how to become a famous singer in The Sims 4, but a Sim that learns to play instruments can later become their own backup band. Beginning at level three of either the piano or guitar skills, your Sims can play along with their very own songs.

6 Sing Everywhere, Especially In The Shower

Other than maybe in your car (which isn’t an option in The Sims 4, but maybe someday), is there anywhere better to practice singing than in the shower? No matter your skill level, you can click the shower while your Sim is in it and instruct them to sing.

This is a great way to gain the first level of the Singing skill in The Sims 4, since you’re not able to use the microphone to do it until you’ve reached level one. We’ve all got to start somewhere, right, shower superstar?

5 Become A Karaoke Legend

When the whole point of an activity is to sing, it’s no wonder said activity will help you learn to sing better in The Sims 4. With the City Living expansion pack, we got access to karaoke machines (amon many other fun additions), which you can find dotted around karaoke bars in the vibrant nightlife city of San Myshuno.

Adults and children alike can participate, and it makes for a pretty fun night out with friends and family, too. If you’re a little more well-off, you can even go so far as to purchase a karaoke machine from Buy Mode to put in your house, able to practice belting it out from the comforts of your home lot.

4 Get Inspired To Be Something Great

Skills always come more naturally when you’re eager to work on them, and with the Inspired mood in The Sims 4, creativity comes easier than ever. Sims with creative aspirations will often naturally become Inspired throughout the day, and musical Sims are certainly no exception.

If your Sim is struggling to find their muse naturally, though, you can make them inspired by having them drink Yerba Mate tea from the Tea Magic Personal Brewer (which is available if you have Jungle Adventure installed), by having them view inspired artwork, or even just by having the right lighting in the room.

3 Write The Next Chart-Topper…

​​​​​​Once you reach level eight of the Singing skill, you’ll finally be able to hop from covers to crooning once you begin writing songs of your own. To do this, you’ll need a microphone – unless you’ve chosen to head down the instrumental route as well, and interacting with your guitar or piano will do the trick as well.

Not only can you write your own songs, but you can also perform them for others as well. Whenever you choose to sing, you’ll have the option to sing a specific song. Choose your own to flex your pipes and your prose prowess.

2 … And License Songs For Cash

But you can’t be a chart-topper without actually getting onto the charts, can you? With enough practice with writing your own songs at level eight of the Singing skill in The Sims 4, you’ll be ready to begin licensing them.

You can do so from your mailbox, then sit back and watch the royalties roll in for an entire in-game week afterward. You won’t earn royalties after that week, though, so keep writing songs and licensing them to keep the money coming.

1 Be Persistent – Success Doesn’t Happen Overnight

While it may be a slow burn of a process to finally become the superstar singer you’re shooting to be, remember that The Sims 4 is meant to mimic real life in a way – it’s not often you can show up to Hollywood and immediately land a lucrative record deal.

Making your passion for Singing into a career will take some time, and you’ll likely need a way to support yourself in the meantime. Just don’t forget those little people when you become a big Del Sol Valley it-kid!
