Tips For A Good Singing Voice

Tips for better singing! Learning to sing can be, and is, a pleasant experience. And once you have crossed the border line of accomplishing this skill it is all downhill. In other words, practising becomes easier and seeing results makes all past effort worthwhile. Once you have started on first row of building blocks all it takes is the time to build the skill. But the essential key is preparing an initial good foundation.

Being able to sing is one of the many things that can make one feel free and happy. Not everyone can sing, especially in tune, but nevertheless it is still helpful to be able to sing freely and joyfully. The tips below are just a few of the things needed to be on the way to being a great singer. Once you have started on first row of building blocks all it takes is the time to build the skill. But the essential key is preparing an initial good foundation.

Tip Number 1: Warming Up

Vocal exercises can be a real chore, but nevertheless they are essential to vocal clarity. Although warm-ups are tedious, there are many ways to warm up that are fun; once you have found your own way of warming up it stops being a chore and becomes just a part of being a singer. Also, once you have found your own way of developing your vocals through warm-ups you will see a true market difference when performing. Higher, and lower, notes can be reached, and a wider range can be achieved. Any singer you see belting it out on stage has not just jumped on stage from watching TV, they have been preparing all day to bring their voice out!

Tip Number 2: Practice

 As with anything, practice is the key ingredient to accomplishing a skill. As little as 20 per day of vocal warm-ups, octave jumps, and scales will lead to an increased range in vocals and will help to improve clarity and tone, vibrancy and strength, and remove strain in a developing singing voice.

Tip Number 3: Hydration

The first thing that goes hand in hand with constant practice is constant good hydration. It is essential for the body to be hydrated before even thinking about singing! But for the vocal chords to be healthy and to operate as we want them to, keeping them clean and well watered is vital. Beverages such as coffee do not hydrate the body - they dehydrate it. Start the day with a mug of water rather than a mug of coffee and your vocal chords will thank you for it. If you really cannot forgo your morning cup of coffee hit, drink a glass of water afterwards; and do this for every cup of coffee you decide to have.

And steam is just as efficient; those who have cared for birds will know what this means. A bird with squeaky breathing is no good, so placing the bird in a steamed up area such as a bathroom or over a bowl of hot water (without being cruel!) cleans the sinuses. The process works the same for the human vocal chords: taking time to go the sauna; taking a hot shower or bath; or a facial steam will help relax and clean the larynx. This is especially true in the mornings when all is bunged up and groggy.

Tip: from personal experience I have found that using bottled water for drinking rather than tap water works better whilst practising to keep the chords moist.

Tip Number 4: Exercise

Getting that blood pumping and circulating around the body goes without saying as far as the health is concerned. Healthy for the heart; for the veins and arteries; the limbs; the breathing apparatus - and the voice box! Those who know the basics of vocal exercises will know of the lip trill (or the tongue trill). This works in the same manner of exercising - the lip trill vibrates the face and throat muscles and getting that blood circulating!

Learning to sing can be, and is, a pleasant experience. And once you have crossed the border line of accomplishing this skill it is all downhill. In other words, practising becomes easier and seeing results makes all past effort worthwhile. If you truly want to become a good singer it takes time - it won’t just happen overnight. But persistence does win the race and you will, in due time, be able to sing any song you wish with ease. Good Luck!
