Singing tips: character of a good singing

The five tips to become a better singer written earlier on this blog were instructive tips to stare up passion to sing. In this article are few tips on voice exercise before singing. Everybody has their own blessed unique voice. What makes a voice better is the influence that is exacted on it. You don’t really need to feel bad if you think you are not sounding good. Just have a singing lofty ideal and keep at it. Know the skill of singing is also very important to be a better music minister.

Pre-singing Exercise
Not limited to this but proper breathing is the foundation of all singing and good posture is the only way to breathe properly. Breathe in through both the mouth and nose with the throat as open as possible to allow air to move quickly without a pronounced hissing sound.  When breathing in the stomach should move out and down and the chest should expand out, but the shoulders should not need to lift.  If you need to hold your breath before beginning to sing, leave the throat open and keep the air in the lungs by keeping the diaphragm and lower back muscles extended. Exercises like sit up, and jogging can help the breath control.

Singing voice
The singing voice has two registers commonly called the chest voice and the head voice (or falsetto). These registers are defined primarily by the configuration of the larynx and how the vocal fold vibrates the air passing through it. The references to a middle register actually refer to a blended tone from both the chest and head registers. The transition between chest voice and head voice is commonly called the break.  Lower notes are generally sung with the chest voice and higher notes are sung blended or in the head voice, but there will be a handful of notes that can be sung with either chest or head voice.  There is usually a marked difference in volume and tone of the chest and head voices in untrained singers, but training can smooth out the transition and create a blended range that makes the best use of both registers.

How to Singing
It’s nearly true that if you can talk you can sing but the difference is in some basic technicalities which singing will demand. Good Singing should be a smooth, relaxed process of vibrating and shaping the air you push from your lungs. Singing starts by opening your mouth to prepare to produce the starting vowel or consonant you wish to sing. The throat and oral cavity should be open and the vocal fold should be relaxed, as if you are just about to yawn.  Use the muscles in the diaphragm, abdomen and lower back to produce a consistent stream of air out of your lungs by engaging them smoothly and building to full pressure.  Fix the pitch you want to sing in your mind and then engage your vocal fold to produce it with as little neck muscle tightness as possible.  Listen carefully to tune the pitch and tone as you sing.  Use dynamics to give life to melodic lines and emphasis to lyrics. Use vocal ornamentation like slides, slurs and vibrato sparingly and only as required to properly interpret the song.
