Maybe you want to learn how to sing, but you don’t know how you can nurture your talent. The best long-term strategy to becoming a better singer is to practice on a daily basis. This article focuses on three tips for becoming a better singer, but constant practice overrides them all.
The three singing aspects include breathing naturally, keeping your tongue on the floor of the mouth, and memorizing your music. Practicing these three will significantly improve the tone and quality of your singing.
Most singers don’t know how to breathe well while singing. Some of them do very strange things that make them feel very uncomfortable and weird. You can just hear instructions such as ‘pull in your stomach’ or ‘expand your ribs’ without having a clear understanding of the required body actions.
You can try lying on your back and relax. Place one of your hands near your lower ribs and the other one on your stomach. Don’t even think about breathing instead let it happen naturally.
You can pay close attention to the torso part of that move during breathing ant the parts that don’t move. You should breathe in the same natural manner while singing. The only difference is that you should make deeper breathes when singing.
As you sing, your lower ribs will move out as they expand. In addition, your upper body part stays still for you are filling up the bottom part of your lungs. You should never undertake shallow top breathes while singing.
The process of breathing should not be strenuous. Just relax and breathe naturally when in the middle of your performance.
Keep the Tongue on the Floor of the Mouth
This aspect may sound funny, but the tongue tends to have the unfortunate habit of getting in the way as you sing. You may not easily realize this, but if you tense up during a performance, making the root of your tongue tense up, it may result in the tightness of your throat and voice and a strained sound.
Try placing the tip of the tongue on the back of the bottom teeth. You can now feel the sides of the tongue against your insides of the bottom back teeth. You should have a relaxed feeling with no tension. You should try to maintain the tongue down in the mouth as you sing.
There is no need to press the tongue so hard or tense it up. You only need to keep it low in the mouth. The tongue will have slight movements as you sing but you need to maintain the tip close to the front teeth of the bottom teeth to make a significant difference in your voice.
Memorize your Music
If you are reading music and singing at the same time, your mind may tend to pay very little attention towards the singing. The process of reading words and music consumes a large portion of the brain processing power.
This approach implies that you give the singing close to fifty percent concentration. The only solution is to learn your music by heart and memorize it. You can apply song memorization and repetition games at your free time.
