3 tips that will improve your voice instantly
Welcome 2018! Here’s the top three singing tips that will absolutely change your singing voice immediately – these super common issues are easily solvable with the right information and a healthy singing technique.
These simple techniques will not only improve your singing voice, but they’ll actually help you extend your range and keep your voice healthy while you’re building a powerful voice!
#1 Learn to control your diaphragm
Support, diaphragmatic breathing, breathing low, belly breathing – it’s all referring to the same thing, controlling the diaphragm. Learn to control your diaphragm properly and you will immediately see a release of most of your strain, an increase in resonance and dexterity of your range. Remember, you breathe USING the diaphragm, not INTO the diaphragm…
#2 Learn chord closure
This is also known as adduction – learning to control the aperture of your vocal chords is an extremely important skill, and is especially so when you want to build a full and powerful voice into your high range. Controlling the thickness and ‘closure’ of your chords is a delicate skill that does require a professional coach’s help, so book a session with me now if you’re going breathy in your high range or ‘pushing’ as you ascend.
#3 Control your soft palate
It’s not commonly shared, and is probably ‘The Secret’ that that fancy YouTube coach who’s selling an expensive course is keeping from you – learn to direct your airflow and resonance by controlling your soft palate. It’s actually a super simple muscle to train, and in fact, is the ONLY muscle out of the “Big Three” singing muscles that isn’t involuntary – meaning, right now without even the slightest vocal training you can actually control your soft palate like a pro singer.
I’ve put together a super simple guide on the top #3 singing tips of 2018 – when you’re ready, you can book a session with me and I’ll show you how to fix your voice using these simple techniques!
