Are You A Singer Wannabe?

It seems like everywhere you turn nowadays, there's a new reality show on television for people to find their one minute of fame as a singer. If you've watched the early singing auditions for some of these shows, you might well have wondered whether you could do a whole lot better. Well, maybe you could, but a lot of the people who make it through to the final rounds of the shows have been having singing lessons for years - and it shows.
Deciding to get singing voice lessons is a big step, because it's going to cost you some money. But if you're serious about singing, it's a step worth taking. Proper singing training will help you to develop a strong, healthy voice, that will continue to grow and mature even after the singing lessons finish. You will also learn all sorts of singing tips, including ideas on how to do well at singing auditions, if that's what you want to do.
However, don't make the mistake of thinking you'll walk into your first singing lesson and immediately learn how to sing like a professional. Singing training is long process, with many stages to pass through before your voice can reach its full potential. Some people even find their singing deteriorates initially, as they try to adapt to new singing techniques. But this is only temporary, and you will soon be rewarded with rapid progress. Many professional singers continue to take singing voice lessons, because they find it helps them to maintain the quality of their singing voice.
There are some CDs available that contain singing voice lessons. While this can be helpful for practicing at home, it can't replace proper singing training with a trained professional. Still, many of the CDs offer a useful variety of exercises, which can help to supplement what you're learning in your singing classes. However it might be worthwhile letting your singing teacher listen to the CD first, so that he or she can tell you if any of the exercises are inappropriate for you.
Finally, when you're starting out, it's important to choose the right vocal coach for your singing lessons. It's always good to have a coach who is flexible and can sing a wide variety of musical styles. That way your coach will be able to adapt to your musical preferences, which is particularly important if you're preparing for a singing audition. A coach who's worked in the singing industry will also be able to give you lots of singing tips. You may even find that the best teacher for you doesn't live close by - you might have to travel some distance to get good quality singing training. But the results will make the travel worthwhile.
Remember, too, that singing is meant to be fun. It's great seeing all these singing auditions on television, but make sure you also notice how much stress and pressure is involved. So make a commitment to yourself that you'll enjoy your singing training, and if at any stage it stops being enjoyable, think about whether it's really what you want to do. In the meantime, go for it and you might surprise yourself with how well you really can sing with a little bit of singing training.

Train Your Singing Voice - What You Need to Know


The most important thing about having and maintaining your singing voice is to train it properly. This will ensure that you can sing for years to come without any health problems. Among other things the following points need to be considered:

  • Sort Out What Singing Exercises You Need To Do
  • Train And Improve Your Own Unique Singing Style

Sort Out What Singing Exercises You Need To Do

Once you have figured out your routine for training your voice, you need to know what sort of exercises you need to do. Do you want to be able to sing like Celine Dion or the successful American Idol winner Carrie Underwood? Then one of the things you need to do is to work on your scales and your singing range. The best way to do this is to play scales on a piano and do your exercises or look at getting audio lessons to play on your computer or CD player. Regular practice will extend your range in no time at all. Most people recommend that you should try to have a singing range of between two to three octaves. This will enable you to sing most songs that are popular whether you are singing pop, jazz, rock or even musical theatre.

Train And Improve Your Own Unique Singing Style

When singing along to songs from your favourite singing artists, try not to copy them completely. Otherwise you will lose your own individual style. You could also pick up on bad singing habits that some singers have, which can take a long time to unlearn. The best thing to do is to listen to the songs and the musical notes and try to recreate them yourself. Remember, you want people to say you sound like you and not like a clone of someone else. Popular singers are popular because of their individual styles. If you want to be popular, get your own unique style.

Those are a couple of things that you need to think about when training your singing voice. Get into a regular singing routine and you will be on your way to a great singing voice.

Singing Technique - Singing in a Group by Grace Potter

There are several singing techniques that you can implement so that you can improve your performance. This will of course depend on what type of singing you want to do.
If you are interested in singing in a school choir or church choir you will want to learn how to sing so that your voice blends seamlessly with the rest of the group.
Breathing techniques are the most important thing to get right. If your body is relaxed, then your voice will be relaxed and will not sound strained or tight.
The Basic 4 Vocal Parts
Most choirs will sing songs with harmony parts and this is usually split into 4 basic vocal groups. The vocal groups are called soprano, alto, tenor and bass. In most cases, girls and women sing the soprano and alto parts, while boys and men usually sing the tenor and bass parts. It has been known for girls to sing tenor parts if their voices are low enough. If a singing group is made up of only one sex then these singing parts will of course be divided amongst them. Sometimes this will reduce the song choices for the group but a good singing teacher can produce great results with the voices they have to work with in the group.
Identify Your Vocal Type
You need to make sure that you know what type of voice you have so that you are singing in the correct vocal range. The best way to find this out is to ask your choir leader which group you are best suited to. They should be able to identify your vocal type by doing a few vocal exercises and singing some scales.
Singing in a group can be very rewarding so why not find out if you can join a local choir at school or church. This is also a great way to start of your singing career by getting practice and support within a welcoming group atmosphere.

3 Tips to Help Your Voice

When it comes to the world of Karaoke and you would rather make a good impression on your audience rather than going up on stage for the purpose of having a laugh then there are a few important tips that will serve you well when singing.

First, if you have never sung into a microphone before, then beware that it is completely different to singing without one. This is because you have to take into consideration many aspects such as volume levels and distortion. So if you are singing a powerful ballad that requires a lot of breathing and hitting of high notes you don't want your lips to be touching the microphone, you need to be standing a distance from it, and this is called "working the mic". Basically if you are too close it can sound awful and just wrong!

Second, make sure you have enough fluids before singing. A bottle of water half hour before you go on stage will do you wonders as it will keep your mouth moist so you don't lose your voice or hit flat notes.

Third, you should always wear clothes that are comfortable to you and then stand in an upright position so you have good posture when it comes to inhaling and exhaling, any slouching means that you won't have the full potential and control over your diaphragm which is an organ that is called upon when singing.

These 3 small tips won't make you into the next Leona Lewis but they will help you a long way when it comes to singing on karaoke and you should easily notice improvements.
