Can you be taught to sing?

Although many people believe that singing is something that either you are born with or you are not, professional singers are usually people who have learned technique and interpretation through taking lessons with a voice teacher or vocal coach.  Many times, people who are very impressive with natural talent, in fact, aren’t used to working to make themselves sound better, so often people who start off knowing they have to work to make their voices better end up with much better results.
