5 Singing Tips

Singing can be really hard, but sometimes easy to do. People who want to be singers, try so hard at getting their voice right to sing. I’ve always wanted to sing since I was 4 years old and I learned so much through out the years. So I wanted to share 5 tips from lessons I’ve learned, with you.

Here’s a good video to help you sing. And don’t forget to check the list of tips below for more advice in singing

1. How to Breathe Correctly

Breathing is very important when you are singing. You must sing from a special part in your body, and that is the diaphragm. The diaphragm is where you must breathe and sing from. Also, breathe from your nose, not from your mouth. When singing, people can not hear you breathe heavy. Breathing will help you sing for starters.

2. Warming Up Exercises

Before getting ready to sing, do warm-up exercises to help your voice. Do any kinds of exercises that might help your voice. But, I think doing “Do, Re, Me, Fa, So, La, Ti, Do” will help for the basics and you can always switch up the scale and make it to any pattern, you want. Warm-Ups are important as well. It will help you contain your voice. Exercising for your voice, will help you start your singing.

3. Ways to Challenge Yourself

There are many ways to challenge yourself. For starters, you can pick out a song that you think is tough for you to sing. A song that has a strong vocalist. Second, I suggest picking out old singers. For example: Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke, Phyllis Hyman, or Anita Baker. You can also pick young singers. For example: Adele, Jazmine Sullivan, Kelly Price, orJamie Foxx. Challenging yourself will help make your voice strong.

4. How to Keep your Vocals Intact

I have recently learned, is that you should never drink cold water before practicing  or performing. You should keep your vocal cords warm by drinking room temperature water or warm and hot tea.

“The reason for this is because when muscles get cold they contract. Contracted muscles = tension. Therefore drinking cold water before or while singing causes your vocal cords to tense up and cause a “lousy” sound.”

5. How to Keep your Audience Attention

When you have finished learning how to sing, it’s time to show the audience that you can sing. Once you have started singing to the audience, don’t be afraid walking around and show entertainment to the audience while you sing. Sing your heart out to the audience. Get their attention when you sing. Once you have started singing, the audience will hear a beautiful voice. The way you sing will get the audience attention.
