4 Quick Singing Tips to Improve Your Vocal Performance
The Road to a Better Singing Voice
Most people who are starting out as singers or even those who have been at it awhile want to improve their vocal abilities and establish a voice that performs at its optimal.
These four singing tips are meant to teach some of the vocal training basics such as using different techniques, rewards for good singer behavior, using a group to tweak skills and keeping
your voice and body in shape for singing. Read them carefully and then add each to your daily routine for better performance when you sing.
1. Keep Track Of And Utilize Different Singing Techniques
It is possible you focus on just one technique over a period of time. Avoid this by trying out the different techniques you have learned in practice or from tutors.
For example, listen to some earlier recordings of your school or college performances.
Then choose an unsung song and practice singing it with a new technique. Follow the method for different techniques. When you come back to an earlier technique, it will not seem boring or repetitive.
2. Reward Yourself On And Off
You can relax in other ways besides relaxation techniques used in singing. Go for a massage, take a hot bath, eat your favorite ice cream, or watch your favorite movie in the theater. Just reward yourself in whatever little way you can.
3. Perform With Your Friends
Get out of monotony by indulging in a jam session with friends. Choose any favorite group song. The idea should be to have fun and not to focus on performance too much. Group members can bring in food items, and you could all sit down together for a pleasant meal.
4. Exercise Before A Performance
Professional singers may have a hectic schedule ahead of them, but it is worthwhile to include a regular exercise regimen in the schedule. Hotels usually have a gymnasium or swimming pool.
You could always go for a walk around the campus or go for a stroll in the mall, if you are familiar with the place. Make a habit of using the stairs instead of elevators, provided you aren’t carrying equipment along.
You may have realized that many of these tips are not directly related to singing as such.
That’s not far from the truth, but you have to look at it from another angle. Just consider a situation where a piano gets out of tune. A tuner comes in and fixes it.
A similar situation arises if your guitar strings start hurting. You replace the strings. Singers need to take care of their bodies in the same fashion. If it does not perform, conduct some maintenance and get it back into shape.
A sound body in good physical shape will allow you to sing with proper breath control and enthusiasm. Get hold of fresh singing material with your rejuvenated body and start singing again.
Pay attention to fundamentals and follow the advice of your tutor. Singing will give you great pleasure again. Follow these simple singing tips, and you will never find yourself exhausted or bored.
