correct word order

(1) Tom sings for three hours at home every day.

(2) Tom sings at home for three hours every day.

(3) Tom sings for three hours every day at home.

(4) Tom sings every day at home for three hours.

I am not sure which word order sounds natural to native English speakers. Please help me. Thank you very much for your help.

I am not sure which word order sounds natural to native English speakers.

All four sentences (word orders) sound perfectly natural to me, Ansonman. You could even experiment with putting some of those phrases at the beginning:

(5) Every day, Tom sings for three hours at home.
(6) Every day for three hours, Tom sings at home.
(7) For three hours every day, Tom sings at home.
(8) At home, Tom sings for three hours every day.
(9) Every day at home, Tom sings for three hours.
(10) At home every day, Tom sings for three hours.
(11) For three hours at home every day, Tom sings.

You can take your pick from all eleven of those sentence, each of which is correct. If you'd like me to go out of my way to produce a bad word order, let me know.
