As a singer you have a great talent for expressing powerful emotions through the art of music. But, there might be a time when it feels like your singing abilities aren't progressing as quickly as you would like anymore.
Getting discovered as a singer is hard if you don't progress past the competition and create a powerful reputation as a vocalist. Try these fast singing tips by Nadel Paris (a musician) to push your vocals a little further down the professional path.
1. Learn to breathe... the correct way. For singers who haven't thought about the power of air support before, you might be doing it incorrectly. When you breathe in, keep your shoulders fixed and watch the air inflate your belly. This technique allows you to contain more air and release it with a focused stream.
2. Know your vocal range. Someone whose voice cracks often while singing is an indication of not being warmed up, but also of not singing in their range. If a song is not in your range, either throw that song away or transpose it to a lower key to save your rockstar voice some embarrassment.
3. Use less air for the low notes. Low notes take less air to hit as high notes take more. Decrease the flow from your lungs and you can actually feel the adjustment as the lower notes become easier to execute.
4. Record your personal sessions. You might not be able to tell how your singing is being received when you're performing, so recording your practices might not be a bad idea. You can actually pin point some of the habits and problems that make your performances less appealing.
5. Rest your vocals when you have to. There might come a rough night when you can't hear yourself properly and you blow out your vocals. If this happens, you need to rest them and talk as little as possible. If you can spare an entire day or a few hours with pen and paper for communication, your voice will thank you graciously.
Singing isn't the easiest thing to master, but once you get a good thing going, the competition will start falling behind. Try a few of these tips for yourself and improve on your rockstar voice.
