With the introduction of The Sims 4: City Living expansion pack, the singing skill was introduced. This is a skill that doesn’t have a ton of use, but can be fun to watch your sims participate in and can lead to a lot of fun interactions.

When you get your sim to the point of maxing out the singing skill, it is actually quite nice to listen to and can be really beautiful, but when they first start, it’s a mess and you may want to turn your volume down.

Traits That Help The Singing Skill

Music Lover

A sim with the music lover trait can get inspired when listening to music which can help you grow your singing skill, they also get happiness moodlets when playing instruments so if your sim is singing while playing the guitar or piano they will have a really great time!


Creative sims are much more likely to get inspired which is the ideal mood for growing the singing skill and can help them build their skill quicker.

How to Gain The Singing Skill

Your sim has a number of interactions available for them to practice the singing skill, and all of them will not sound the best at first if you have your volume up. Just like with playing instruments your sim will get better at singing as they grow the skill and it’ll make them sound much better.

Your sim can gain the singing skill through using the karaoke machine, clicking on a microphone and using that to start singing, singing in the shower, clicking on the sim and choosing practice singing, serenading other sims, and also if you have The Sims 4: Seasons, they can gain the skill when singing holiday songs
