How To Sing Better

Sing Better

Have you been trying to improve your singing but you feel kind of stuck? Maybe you’ve been trying to be a better singer for a while now and have come to believe that you might never achieve it. But don’t give up just yet! Singing is a skill, and like any skill, you can become better at it with the proper training. Sure, there are people who seem to be born being perfect singers and they do not even have to practice to be so good! But since that is not exactly the case for you, we have compiled a list of tips that can help you to finally become the great singer that you have always wanted to be.

You Have To Find Your Own Style

One of the worst things that people do when they learn to sing is try to imitate others. This might appear to make sense when you are singing someone else’s songs, since you want to do it just like they do, but the fact is that you should do it your way, in your own unique style. You have to explore your entire vocal range in order to know the measure of octaves that you are able to sing. This might seem like an obvious step, but you would be amazed at how few singers actually do it. One good way to start doing this is by singing scales from the lowest note that you feel comfortable with to the highest that you feel you can handle well. This exercise will help you to identify what your voice type really is. Is it soprano, mezzo-soprano, alto, countertenor, tenor, baritone, or is it bass? You can easily download apps that will help you do this. Then it is just a matter or practice, practice, and practice! Make a note of when you are using chest voice, head voice, or mixed voice. Singers use chest voice for lower notes, head voice for higher notes, and when they mix the two, it is called mixed voice.

Breathe Correctly

Believe it or not, a lot of singers forget how important breathing is when it comes to singing. You have to make sure that the air you are breathing is coming from your diaphragm and not your chest. A way to guarantee that you doing this properly is to focus on expanding your abdomen when you breathe in and not your chest. When you go up and down in scale while singing, you will be using your diaphragm and that alone is bound to improve your singing. You can practice doing this by simple putting a hand on your abdomen and take air in through your nose, expanding your abdomen and not your chest; if your chest expands, then you are not doing it correctly. Keep practicing and you will get it!

Come Up With Your Own Unique Attitude

You already know that it is the singer in any band or group who gets the most attention. You are the one that people focus on, so you have to put on a great performance. Having an attitude to go with a great voice will take you much further. Granted, an attitude will not help the quality of your voice directly, but it will give you the confidence that you need to shine; improving your voice and performance. One of the best ways to assume and develop that attitude is by being yourself and infusing your singing with emotion. Really feel what you are singing about and let that passion flow through you!

Develop Different Types Of Voices

Being a singer means that you will sing about different topics that will evoke different emotions, so you should, ideally, develop various voices to use in different musical contexts such as an angry voice to convey the emotion of angry lyrics, a soft and lovely voice for playful lyrics, a sexy, breathy voice for romantic lyrics and so on. One way to do this is by listening to your favorite singers and noting how they do it, but remember to be yourself and not just imitate them! You want your own style to come through and not someone else’s.

Record Yourself

There are way too many people out there who think that they are great singers, especially in the shower, and that is simply not the case. We all sound different to ourselves while singing along to our favorite songs than we sound to other people. This is why it is a good idea to record yourself. You can download an app or use different online programs to do this. Listen to your own singing in order to identify areas that you need to work on. Do this as much as you have to in order to improve your singing and you will certainly accomplish it.
