Everybody enjoys the sound of sweet melodies, and most of us also love to sing. While some of us may sing better than others, we can all train ourselves to sing better and improve our singing.
Here are a few important tips on how to sing better. Start off by preparing your voice.
You can do this by practicing scales no matter how boring and dumb it feels, this will be good for ear training.
Train your ear to pick up the right note, “Do Re Me” is a good song to practice with.
Practicing scales will guide you to stay in tune. Do not strain your voice, make sure to start easy.
It is advisable to start off with the easier scales(c scale) and then go up to the other scales. It is better to start slow and sure while striving to hit the right key and take charge of your voice. Instruments can be used to make it interesting and to make sure the pitch is right.
You can also teach yourself to sing better. Here is how you can do that – it is very easy and fun. First of all you should get yourself a microphone, any simple microphone will do. If your laptop comes with an inbuilt microphone then you are lucky. You can also purchase one that is pocket friendly and connect it to your laptop or smart phone.
Set up a sound recording app on your laptop or smart phone. It is easy to download the app from the Internet. It will enable you to hear yourself sing and you can improve and sing better. For the exercise select a song that you know well or have the lyrics preferably your favorite song. This makes it easier to practice because you have the lyrics so no time is wasted.
This way the concentration will be on the singing. Relax and compose yourself when you are ready, play the song and click the red dot on the recorder so as it can start recording.
Give it your best shot and sing along word to word while trying to match the artists’ notes and pitch. No matter how many mistakes you make do not stop and when you are done click the black button on the recorder to stop recording.
Once you are done click the play button on your recorder and listen to yourself singing. No matter how bad or good it sounds, gather your courage and listen to it all. Try and recognize your flaws but also appreciate the areas you did well. Go back and play the original song comparing to your recorded version.
If possible save your recording for future use. Try singing again, you can sing for at least half an hour a day but do not strain your voice.
Each time you sing add passion and energy and make sure to record it. When singing own the song, you do not have to sound exactly as the original singer.
It is also a good to find the different ways your voice makes sounds in different parts like the nose, diaphragm or nose. Learning how these sounds are made gives you more power to control those sounds.
