How to Become a Better Singer

While some people seem to be born with inherently beautiful voices, even professional singers have to work hard and practice often to maintain their singing abilities. There are plenty of tools and steps you can take to become a better singer from getting professional training, exercising your body and your voice, to simply incorporating the correct posture and breathing techniques.

1
Get voice training regularly. One major way to become a better singer is to have vocal training. Just like playing a sport or exercising, your voice is a muscle that you need to work out in order to develop your voice. By having a professional voice coach, you can learn techniques that will improve your voice. Your voice is an instrument, like a piano that a coach can help you master.

  • Consider getting private singing lessons from a voice coach who can help you with techniques that will develop your unique voice.
  • If you’re in school, consider joining the choir. Being in choir is a great way to become a better singer as it will help you to learn how to sing with others, read music, and can give you confidence by not having to sing alone.

2
Know your range. Becoming a better singer is partly about knowing your range and sticking to it. Some people have more range than others, but everyone has a sweet spot where your voice sounds best.
  • There are seven main ranges: Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano, Alto, Countertenor, Tenor, Baritone, and Bass. The first three are typically the ranges of women, while the last four are men’s ranges.
  • To find your range, picture your voice like a ferris wheel. Start at the top, singing the highest note you can and go down the scale to the lowest note you can hit.
  • Play notes on a piano to compare your pitch to the piano notes to help you find your range.

3
Focus on your breath. Learning how to breathe properly is an essential part of becoming a better singer. Be sure to take a deep enough breath before singing a line so that you have enough air to carry out every word.
  • Breathe in through your belly, not through your chest.This improves your sound and allows you to better control your voice. To be sure you are breathing properly, put your hand on your belly and try to push it out with your belly expanding it as you inhale.
  • Take a few minutes to practice breathing through your belly daily. You can do this either standing up or laying down. Again, be sure your belly is rising every time you take a deep breath.
4
Learn proper singing posture. Most singing teachers suggest standing rather than sitting to achieve the.  best sound. Sitting collapses your muscles and can hinder your ability to get a proper breath.
  • Keep your head up and inline with your shoulders. Picture your spine like a straight line extending through the crown of your head.
  • Let your jaw drop, and keep your tongue relaxed toward the front of your mouth.
  • Relax your shoulders.
  • Lift the roof of your mouth in the back as if you were going to yawn.  This opens up the throat and allows more air to flow through.

5.Warm up before you sing. Singing a song doesn't count as a warm-up, because you naturally focus all of your efforts on trying to sound good rather than on your form and technique. Warm-ups, on the other hand, isolate certain problem areas and open up your range.
  • Remember that warm-ups are not intended to sound good. In fact, most of them sound rather silly and obnoxious, even if you have a professional singing voice. Find a private place to do your warm-ups if you don't want to disturb others.
  • Be sure to warm up both the upper and lower voice. The upper voice is breathier and lighter-sounding than the lower voice, which is more solid and loud. To find your upper voice, mimic an opera singer. Your lower voice is closer to the range in which you generally speak.
  • Practice warm ups that stretch your mouth. Do scales with an “Ooh wee ooh oohweeoohweeohh” sound stretching the corners of your mouth wide. Or practice tongue trills while starting at your highest note and moving down the scale to your lowest.

6
Learn to recognize pitch. The best way to do this is to sing along with a piano or keyboard, if you have one. Press down on a key, and as it rings out, match your voice to it with an "ah" sound. Do this for every musical note: A, A#, B, C, C#, D, D#, E, F, G, and G#.
  • The sharp notes are the black keys on the piano to the right of the corresponding note on the white key.

7
Practice singing daily. The more you sing, the stronger your voice becomes. Remember, your voice is a muscle that needs to be exercised.[9]
  • Though everybody has a natural range, you can actually expand the upper and lower limits of your vocal range over time simply by practicing often and doing your exercises.
  • Sing along to your favorite songs for practice. Keep in mind though that you may not have the same voice as your favorite singers. You won’t become a better singer by mimicking other singers only. Sing in your own voice.
