How To Improving Your Singing Voice


Can you consider yourself a good singer or a great singer? If you are a good singer, you can always get better. These tips are for you and for others who want to improve their singing voices despite their current vocal skills.
Tip #1 – Breathe properly
You may only maximize the use of your own voice with proper breathing. There is a simple way to know if you are breathing properly just by placing one of your hands on the stomach and inhaling. The stomach must be expanding when you inhale and not the chest and rib cage  This only means that your breathing is supported by your diaphragm, a muscle found below your lungs that is actually inflating your stomach. Your abdominal muscles are activated by your diaphragm. This makes your diaphragm stronger than the muscles on your ribs.
improve their singing voices
Your breaths must be strong enough to support your voice when singing. You must use the stomach as well as the lower muscles on your abdomen to support breathing. Exercising your lower abdomen through crunches and sit-ups might be considered if you think you need to further build your voice. This also helps in projecting your voice more appropriately.
Tip #2 – Focus on posture
Your breath is traveling from the lungs upward to your mouth. If blocked, getting out efficiently will be very difficult. They way you stand affect the way you sound. Knowing this, you must stand with your legs about shoulders wide apart. You may lift your chest, giving your lungs lots of room for them to expand. Keep your shoulders relaxed as well.
Tip #3 – Stay relaxed
The tension that you are feeling may also affect the way you sound. Apart from your shoulders, you must also keep your facial muscles, jaw, tongue, throat muscles and vocal cords relaxed. Before singing, you may exercise your face, shoulders and jaw and of course, your vocal cords. There are many warm-up exercises that you may do to help you feel more relaxed before any performance.

Tip #4 – Be attentive
Pay attention on your tongue as well as your soft palate or that part located at the back part of your mouth. The latter must be raised to give your voice more space and thus resonate better. The tip of the tongue, on the other hand, must be at your front teeth’s back. In this way, it will not possibly block your throat which usually happens when your tongue is positioned farther back.
Tip #5 – Drink water
Water is the most perfect thing for your voice. You need to avoid dairy as well as thick drinks for a minimum of three days before any performance. On that day and even during the performance, you must only drink water to replenish.
Tip #6 – Don’t strain
When practicing singing, you must focus on your body. When you are feeling any pain while singing, there must be something wrong. You might be pushing your range to its limit. You must sing with strong and healthy volume when breathing properly but if there is still pain, you might be singing too loud. This means improper support for your voice more so because your vocal cords must be getting tired.
If you feel the pain when hitting a high note, refrain from doing so. It only means that the note is out of your range. While breathing may expand your vocal range, your vocal cords’ size may not be able to support this particularly because the size is considered as the determinant of your maximum pitches.
Further, even if your breathing can support your vocal ranges, you may not always hit high notes properly more so when these are far from your actual range. Choose only those songs that you know you can comfortably sing. Stop singing for a while if your vocal cords are already tired or more importantly, if you are suffering from a sore throat.
