Singing Tips

I have listed some easy to do singing tips and exercises to help people who want to learn how to sing better.
You can find many more singing lessons in The Singing Tutor ebook

1. In order to hold notes longer, try this exercise...
Breathe in (not too deep).
Hold your breath for a couple of seconds and say the letter "Sssssssssssss" until your lungs are empty.
Repeat this exercise frequently and try to say the letter "Ssssssssssss" for a longer period each time.
You will find that with a little practice, when you come to hold onto a note, you will be able to hold the note longer than before without any effort.

2. Don't just learn to sing in one style of music.
Try singing in as many styles as you can like swing, musical Theatre, pop, rock etc.
This will train your voice to be versatile when it's needed

3. Never guess the pitch you are about to sing. Hear the note in your head before you open your mouth.
You should be hearing the notes you are about to sing in your head befor attempting to sing them.
This is not a s difficult as it sounds……

4. In order to reach high notes with more ease change the vowel sound
e.g. If the vowel is "A" as in the word "SAY".
Change the sound to "EH" as in "SAID"
You will find that you can reach the note with less effort.

5. Always warm-up by singing exercises and scales for at least five minutes before singing.
This will allow the blood flow to reach your vocal chords before singing at your full potential.
This is similar to an athlete warming up before taking part in an event

6. Don't take any dairy products like milk, cheese or butter before singing as this creates a sticky film over your vocal chords preventing them from working properly.

7. Do drink plenty of water as your vocal chords are the last things in your body to be hydrated. Tea, coffee etc. don't count.

8. If your having trouble with your voice such as a slight sore throat or having to clear your throat. Take a glass of water and squeeze some juice from a lemon and drink.

9. Make sure you are prepared for you audition. Ie: you have an appropriate song for what is needed. Make sure you have a backing track and sheet music and that they are in a comfortable key for your voice.

10. Record yourself singing at every opportunity and listen back as though you are listening to someone else. This way you will clearly identify your mistakes as well as your best bits.

The singing tips on this page are only a small part of the tips given in The Singing Tutor program.
