Essential Singing Tips

Practice/Rehearsal Tips

Where you practice can be as important to your vocal workout as how much you practice. Make sure you practice in a place where you feel free to sing out -- without worry as to who might be listening.

Singing at gigs, recording sessions or band rehearsals should not be considered practice. You must also make time for yourself to sing without the pressure of having to sound good. Give yourself the luxury of taking chances and making mistakes during your own, private workout.

When you practice, do so slowly and give yourself the time to relax before your workout -- don't rush! Haste is the #1 enemy of meaningful vocalizing.

If you vocalize for a half and hour everyday, you'll be surprised at how much more ready to sing you'll always be.

Always train yourself to be able to sing one or two notes higher than required in your performances. This insurance will allow you to relax on stage.

Physical Tips

The muscles used for sit-ups or leg lifts are the same used to support (or press) air through the cords to bring forth a singer's sound. Some of these exercises, on a regular basis, add power to your overall tone.

Your jaw should drop -- as it does when you yawn -- whenever holding a note in your upper range.

If you have to cough or clear your throat, do so gently. These actions are like sandpaper to your vocal cords.

Eat and sleep properly -- and ideally -- exercise daily. All of these things will enable your body to achieve a state of relaxation and vocal-cord readiness and will benefit your singing more than you'd think.

Maintain a high level of water in your body. The old adage eight glasses a day... helps keep your vocal cords lubricated and conditioned.
