How to Sing better :- There are a few key things that can help no matter how you sing. Contrary to the popular saying, practice doesn’t necessarily make perfect; it does, however, make better! There are a lot of practical things you can do to improve the quality of your voice, from learning to breathe properly to avoiding certain foods, to trying specific warmup exercises before singing or speaking. These aren’t overnight solutions, but with time and work, you can absolutely improve the quality of your voice.
Breathing and Standing Correctly
Learn to breathe.
Breathing correctly is imperative to having a strong voice. The key is to breathe deeply:
As you inhale and exhale, try to inflate your stomach and kidney (back) areas with your breath. To ensure that you’re breathing into these areas, place your hands around your waist, with your thumbs on your back, your fingers at your front, and your palms resting on your sides down towards your hips. You should feel your hands expand and contract with each breath. Over time, as you strengthen your breath, these expansions and contractions will get bigger and longer.
If you have trouble breathing deeply, try lying on the floor on your back, with your hands on your stomach. When you inhale, your hands should rise; when you exhale, your hands should lower
Use your abs.
When you’re breathing correctly, when you inhale, the lower muscles (diaphragm) over your abdomen should move outward, making room for more air. As you sing (or talk or just exhale), use those muscles to push the air back out.
Use the muscles over your lower back (around your kidneys) in exactly the same way to control your inhalations and exhalations.
Learn the correct posture.
Pay attention to the position of your feet, knees, hips, abdomen, chest, shoulders, arms, and head
- Your feet should be slightly apart, with one foot slightly in front of the other so that your weight is slightly forward.
- Your knees should be relaxed and slightly bent. When aiming for good posture it can be tempting to lock your knees; be careful not to do this.
- Your hands should be relaxed and hanging at your sides.
- Your abdomen should be relaxed but ready to be engaged. To get a sense of how an engaged abdomen feels, place your hands on your waist (with your thumbs on your back) and cough very lightly
- Your shoulders should slide back and down so that your back is straight and your head is high. Do not hunch or pull your shoulders up towards your ears
- Your chest should be slightly up and out— this will likely happen naturally when you pull your shoulders back and down
- Your chin should be parallel with the floor — neither lifted or pointed downward
Once you’ve moved into the correct posture, check in to make sure that you are not holding tension anywhere. It should not feel as though you’re forcing your chest out or your back to be straight. Be sure to relax your face and your neck.
Singing or speaking while your body and face are tensed will only make it more difficult to produce a high-quality sound.
