Tricks To Improve Your Singing Voice
See how some of your favorite singers and songwriters achieve the vocals on the radio. This information will assist you with giving your vocal talents a boost of great improvement.
You must have heard this said before but people will not listen until you are passionate about the process.
You must be able to devote a minimum of 2.5 hours a day of your time to focus on improving your voice.
These are the hours I recommend for you to dedicate to learning techniques and programs that will help you become a more accomplished singer, singer-songwriter, or performer.
When you have a set schedule in your life that is devoted to improving your voice and music you can get more accomplished and you can learn much quicker than if you are trying to learn something on your own time.
Because of the many hours it will take to become a more accomplished vocalist, it is necessary to do this in blocks of time, rather than in bites, so you can allocate the time to the appropriate areas that will result in proper performance.
Here are some ways to improve your singing voice:
1. Increase the area of your throat that you can sing
You can achieve this by learning a wide range of notes.
A wide range of notes is a beautiful thing to sing because it’s very powerful.
If you have a very powerful voice, your registration will become one of the strongest sounds.
If you have a strong note then it sounds full, but not brassy.
2. Work on how to build and sustain higher notes in your voice
Start with the very lowest note of the low G then go to the very highest note of the high E. Then use the very highest note of the high G and the very lowest note of the high E.
Then drop those two notes to the lowest notes in your register and repeat.
For instance, if you can sing in the high G, then you can start singing the lowest note of the high E, the F#4, and then move up to the F#3 and then to the C#4, the C#4.
Do this for several weeks or months.
You can try it and see if you notice a difference in the timbre of your voice.
3. Find ways to make your voice higher in volume
What you do with your voice will determine the thickness of the sound.
The more you play around with the power of your voice the thicker your sound will become.
You may find that it’s easier to grow your lower register in a more controlled way that comes from one area of the face.
If you speak to the person in the street you will want to speak with a little lower pitch, and you may find that a raspy sound becomes acceptable if you speak at a lower pitch and keep your upper register very loud and vibrant.
You may find that keeping your voice very high in volume and register isn’t the answer to getting the biggest voice.
Experiment with all sorts of techniques to achieve the best voice for you.
Some methods include:
- Dynamic trills.
- Body movement, such as jumps, drops, jumps, pops, and so on.
- Breathing sounds.
- Some other fun techniques to try include:
- Pitching at different intensities and stresses.
- Vowels sound in specific registers, such as f sharp, high trills, and quickening.
- Practicing breath control.
- Jumping around.
- Repeat repetitions.
Start to focus on each of these exercises to slowly develop the ability to sing your own sounds with these techniques.
Pay attention to how you feel.
Are there any areas that you want to change?
How is your tone sounding?
Try to keep your volume under control as you grow.
Look for ways to make this the most natural way for you to sing.
4. Be patient and consistent in your work
The final results will come as a result of your consistent work.
The results can take time, but if you show up and do the work every day you will eventually achieve results.
I like to focus on slow and steady growth.
When I look at a voice it can take many years to really see a voice that is flowing through your throat effortlessly.
Years of hard work and dedication will produce that kind of voice.
You may be focusing on one area too much and ignoring others.
What you may be missing out on is focusing on the whole voice.
Because we need all four registers, including the lowest and the highest, you will want to work on the most important registers first.
It might take weeks or months to work on these deeper register areas.
But when you do work on these low and high registers, they will come easily.
And over time, your higher registers will come as a result.
5. Switch your attention from one area of the voice to another
If you are working on the same thing over and over and it’s not improving your voice, try switching your focus to another area.
If you are working on your falsetto voice, then try working on your belt pitch and throatiness.
Work on the higher register as a result.
If you are working on the lung sounds, then try working on the lower register and other voice areas.
6. Do the work and stop “phoning it in”
The goal is not to get the sounds at a high level just to impress others.
Don’t pretend to have some great power vocal ability just because you think you should sound that way.
This kind of practice will actually impede your growth as an artist.
There is more to singing than belting out high notes.
You need to learn how to sing the full range of your voice.
Don’t practice a single scale at a high register and then abandon this very work to give you more power.
You should work hard to achieve a full range of voices so that you can sing from low to high.
If you don’t sound good from low to high, then don’t get into this work in the first place.
It’s the same with your everyday vocabulary.
If you don’t sound strong in your everyday vocab, then it’s probably not a good idea to practice the lower register of these words.
