When teaching yourself how to sing, another important thing to learn is how to sing with a chest voice. It's a lot like yoga or self-disciplined sports. You always have to develop patience, inner mental strength, breathing technique through listening to yourself, feeling yourself, and a good vocalist, because you have to approach all that even with a mentor. I highly recommend Berklee Vocal for Performance with Donna McElroy DVD, and then some practice, and then some silence, and then some listening, and rinsing and repeating.
So for today's post, my goal is to help you avoid this fate by sharing 16 simple strategies to build an effective practice routine that will greatly improve your singing in a very short time. They will usually have a mix of around 5-6 different voices that they use selectively in different musical contexts (most singers only have 1-. We will discuss several short-term strategies in your daily singing to make your practice sessions 10 times more effective. You'll never be able to devote 100% of your energy and focus to practice, because you'll be afraid of sounding bad.
So make sure you have 3 or 4 songs like these in your repertoire and sing 1 or 2 of them at the beginning of each practice session. Because once that happens, you can devote 100% of your mental energy to childbirth, instead of being distracted by trying to remember which line comes next. Make sure the music is low so that the recorder can pick up your voice, and then listen to the recording to see if you are singing in the key and articulating the words. A piano is an invaluable tool for anyone who teaches to sing on their own with the help of a private vocal coach.
You can learn to listen to your own voice and correct notes that are out of tune, adjust the vocal cords and vocal timbre, master breathing and, little by little, you can start calling yourself a singer. Singing well means having great control of your breath; after all, singers produce sound by moving air through your body. Because even after you've mastered a song, if you don't keep singing it on a regular basis, your “muscle memory” will tend to forget things over time. The very thought of others laughing while yelling in the next room is too embarrassing for most people.
Without a professional nearby to point you out when you're singing in a mixed voice or a deep voice, it can be hard to tell when you're using which voice. Over time, you'll have to spend singing in front of an audience, even if at first it's just your friends and family. It's easier for men to sing with a chest voice, however, women sometimes find it a little harder. It's very rare for a singer to have a perfect tone or a well-tuned musical ear when he started singing.
If you were to learn to sing on your own, one of the first things you'll find on the Internet is what is called diaphragmatic breathing. If you want to learn to sing, practice singing a series of vowels, letting your voice come from the diaphragm or deep in your chest. You probably already know if you play a drastically wrong note, but it's impossible to measure your exact vocal tone by listening to you sing. You can tell that you are singing aloud because you feel most of the physical sensations of sound in your head.
