These vocal training tips will help you get your singing voice on track. Don't underestimate the simplicity of some of these techniques. They are very capable of producing powerful results...
You hear your voice very differently when you are singing. Recording your voice will give you an idea of how you sound outside your head. The insight you will get from this is priceless.
If you can, record every practice session. Heck, record yourself every time you sing if you can! You will then be able to compare each session, hear improvements, and realize when things are going right... or wrong :(
This exercise is one of the best ways to hear what the listener hears. It's also a confidence booster when you hear how much you have improved from session to session.
You don't need to break the bank on expensive recording equipment! Any cheap microphone and tape recorder will do.
Don't underestimate the power of this vocal training tip!. Please, at least give it a try. You will be amazed at your results...
If you don't know how the voice works, then how can you get it to work?
It's a great idea to give yourself a simple education. The basic mechanics, etc.... Once you have an idea of what's happening inside you when you sing, it will make it much easier to realize when you are doing things right.... or wrong :(
Do you ever find yourself asking "Is this right"? "Is that right"?
It's not uncommon to lose confidence when you don't have a instructor to guide you. That's why a simple singing education can be so effective.
Knowing how the voice works will give you the confidence to practice by yourself. You will never be asking yourself "Am I doing this right"?
An obvious vocal training tip right? But are you singing with good technique? Let's find out...
1. Do I ever feel strain in my neck, chin, or anywhere else?
2. Can I sing high notes as easily as lower notes?
3. Does my voice have a consistent tone over it's entire range?
4. Do I ever get a sore throat when I sing?
There is a correct way to sing, and when you adapt correct technique your voice will flourish! You will develop a powerful, wide vocal range. Your tone will be thick and rich, consistent through your entire range. Which leads me to another point....
There are programs to help you develop great singing technique. But, you must put the work in to receive the prize!
Set yourself a regular schedule..... And stick to it!
Just like any other muscles, your singing muscles must be developed. Regular practice is the only way this can be achieved.
30-minutes to 1 hour a day is best. If you can't manage that, every second day will still be effective. As long as you keep up the regular sessions.
This schedule will develop your singing muscles (provided you are practicing proper technique). As they continue to get stronger, your voice will get better and better. You will continue to find new high and low notes. Your voice will begin to function as one instrument, not two or three separate instruments.
