Singing is a skill that requires daily training to maintain the muscle memory
that's required to perform well. A breath that expands the stomach, rib cage, and
back area, will enable you to sing from the diaphgram and give power to your
voice. To sing well, you need to practice breathing exercises daily. It is always a
good idea that yousing with a piano scale to train your ears. With daily practice,
you can become a great singer.
It would be prefered to find a vocal coach to keep the singing routine in the
safe side. Incorrectly techniques can ruin your singing voice. Spending money in
an experienced vocal coach would be worth the money. If your voice is a little
weak, you should know that this isusually caused by under-developed muscles
or improper use of resonators which involve the pharynx, the hard palate, and
the nasal cavity. The muscles that shouls be used are the diaphgram, soft palate
and some chest. Muscles can be strengthened and with some training you can
learn how to use your resonators to project a powerful voice. If you can't afford or
don't want the dedicationthat comes when hiring a professional voice teacher,
then you might consider joining a local choir.
Once you have acquired a vocal instructor get your voice tested to see what
your vocal range is. The vocal range verifies what notes you sing better or feel
more comfortable singing to get a fuller sound. The tone of your voice is much
more important than the range though.People will enjoy or dislike your voice
based on its sound character, not how many notes you can hit. Never sacrifice
tone for range. Your range can change over time and with maturity and training
but vocal chords can not learn to physically change.
Before you begin to actually sing you have to know some of the important
rules when it comes to singing. It's not just aboutmaking a sound come out from
your mouth but using most of your body. You have to correct your posture, stand
tall with one foot slightly in front of the other one, feet shoulder width apart. This
will allow you to breathe easily and to allow better notes and phrases. Stand up
straight, shoulders back and down, make sure that your chest is high enough to
give room for your lungs toexpand and contract. Relax your jaw and face and
breathe properly since this is one of the most important rules to do when it
comes to singing. Now you can go ahead and do the actual singing.
First, you always start of by warming up before you begin to sing by doing
practice exercises. Warm your voice up in this pattern: start with middle range,
low range, then high range,then back to middle range. You should spend at
least 10 minutes on each range and do not stress your voice if you're frustrated
and can't hit a note. Warm back down or up to your comfortable range and then
try again, carefully. Other things you might want to practice would involve
dynamics and agility. For the dynamics sing a comfortable pitch and start very
softly, crescendoto loud then decrescendo back to soft. Do this with many
different vowels and pitches. Dynamics are variations the intensity of your
resonance. Even the simplest use of dynamics will make your songs come alive,
and the more practice, the louder and softer you'll be able to sing healthily.
When you start out you will probably only be able to sing from mp (metzo piano)
to mf(metzo forte), but your range will increase with practice. For agility try
singing from do to sol to do really fast back and forth, trying to hit all of the notes.
Do this in increments of half steps on different syllables. This will help your voice
become more flexible.
Another thing you would need to focus in is in your vowel pronunciation.
