Training Your Voice for Better Singing

Your voice is unique to you and you alone. Don’t make the mistake of trying to emulate others. Yes, your sound might be similar to a famous singer, but do you really think the general public wants a counterfeit? They want unique and new, and the music industry is an ever-changing business world. So to fit in, you’ll have to develop that unique voice inside… that’s just waiting to be fully-developed!

The best way to train your voice is to work on it one point at a time. Practice in one area until you master it, and then work on another. Below are three key areas of voice training that will help you give a brilliant performance.

The Power of Your Voice

The first step recommended for training is to improve your voice power. Your voice should be energetic and offer a pleasant sound. It should not be tense, nervous, or weak. This aspect of training will involve learning about the voice and how it works, learning to breathe properly while singing, learning to use singing techniques, building singing confidence, and overcoming anxiety while singing in public.

Train Your Voice Accents

The next step in training your voice for greatness is to learn to train your voice accents. Your voice should not be difficult to understand for the listener while talking or singing. Learning to speak more clearly (without a strong accent) will help your singing voice to be clearer as well. Concentrate on speaking clear American English. Practice pronunciation and expand your vocabulary knowledge. Learn to accentuate your voice on demand so you can set the mood while singing. In other words, control your voice instead of your voice controlling you.

Voice Training for Performance

Once you’ve mastered the preliminary voice training, you’re ready to discover tools for singing success. Learn to deliver your voice in a blend of falsetto and head voice to create a clear, smooth sound no matter what tone is used. Practice voice delivery with many different tones and octaves, various standing positions, and in a variety of places to get the feel for different atmospheres.
