You want to be able to sing well instantly, we all do, we want to improve our qualities as a musician and grow eventually. But let’s be clear and set up your expectations properly, singing well does not happen overnight a tonne of practice and dedication gets you along the way.
So here we can give you some tips that would guide you and help you to become a better singer. Maybe help you sing a little better than you do now.
1. Warm ups
Just as you do your warms up before you play any sports it’s the same with singing.
Stretching out your singing muscles before you sing is just like stretching the muscles in your legs before a long run. It will help you to stay away from tension and prepare your voice for you to sing well. You could do some lip trills in the morning. Even simple humming can do wonders. So start with some warm-ups, not an extensive one (you can if you want), but a little just to get your voice ready in shape before you start singing.
2. Drink water
This might sound a little off the books but yeah drink a lot of water. It may feel like a redundant idea but it surely improves your singing. There’s a really big difference between when your voice is hydrated and when your voice is not hydrated enough.
When you’re not hydrated enough it could be a little more difficult to reach those pitches that you as a singer would want, staying hydrated makes it a lot easier for you to run through riffs.
3. Stand Up Straight
Keep your head nice and tall, do not stretch your neck, just keep it forward as if you’ve got to look at a person straight in the eye. Get your feet and your shoulders all in one straight line, get everything nice and straight and tall. Do not lean over as you start to sing, so what you want to do is you want to just keep everything relaxed, your chest tall and your navel tucked in, perfect.
4. The Diaphragmatic Breath.
Without proper breadth control, you simply can’t sing very well. You need to control your air to control your voice. You’ve got to exhale a steady stream of air that supports your voice make it sound good. This is where the diaphragm comes in, you might have heard about it, right? So when you use your diaphragm actively, you’ll see an expansion on your stomach as you inhale and you can control how much air you take in and how much you exhale. Breath management sounds boring but it’s the easy and quick way to get you singing better.
5. Take Vocal Naps.
For all those who work out, you folks know how important it is for you to have rest days. The same goes with your voice, you need to give it rest. A tired voice is more prone to injuries. So take some time to rest your voice. That means no singing for a while. Give your voice time to regenerate, so the longer you rest, the better your voice gets. Vocal rest helps improve your voice more than you know. Take care of your voice.
We hope you find these tips helpful for you to become a better singer than you were. Cheers!
