The starting point of how to sing has always been debated by sites but it’s important to have a good posture whether standing or sitting. Always have a straight back with your head central. Then, learn how to control your breathing pauses. Correct breathing is very important when it comes to singing especially on higher notes. Breathe with your diaphragm and not your chest. Practice how too support your singing naturally with the diaphragm, by breathing in and out repeatedly.
Next up, try the throat technique – open your vowels. Try saying A-E-I-O-U without widening your mouth, and instead keeping your jaw down. This technique will definitely boost your quality singing and voice growth.
In most instances, when you belt out on high notes, your head may move up thus causing difficulty to your vocal chords. The larynx should be steady when you are going for the high notes. Keeping your chin down, will give your voice power and enable you to control your voice thus avoiding to strain. Now, discover your vocal wide range and try to extend it half-step or full time at a time. I recommend getting assistance from a vocal coach with a few lessons.
Did you know that you have three distinct voice areas – your head register/voice which resonates in your head as you hit the high notes; your chest voice in your chest which resonates as you go for the lower notes; and, the middle/mixed voice between your head and chest which shifts in between for accurate singing in the notes. Proper transition from the high to the low notes is what improves the nature of your voice (voice quality).
Lastly, always drink a lot of water. Water keeps the voice reeds (vocal chords) moist and fluid thus opening and closing easily. Drink lukewarm drinks and not cold. Try as much as possible to avoid sweetened, caffeinated or alcoholic drinks.
From then on wards, it is up to you to exercise your voice. Practice and train your voice daily. Not once in a week or four times in a month, but instead every single day! Also, practice humming like “hmm”… This will improve the precision of your pitch.
