HOW TO STRENGTHEN YOUR VOICE

How to strengthen your vocals 

 How to strenghten your voice

How to strengthen your voice: So, you already know the tips and tricks on how to sing, but it doesn’t end there. Continuing to do certain exercises will help you learn how to strengthen your voice and build your confidence as a performer. Of course working with a good vocal coach is a regular way to maintain improvement, but below are some basic tips to assist on how to strengthen your voice and getting the most out of your vocal.

Posture

One of the ways to help strengthen your voice is by making sure your posture is correct. Your breath travels from your lungs directly through your mouth, so having a bad posture can block this passageway and affect your singing. 

How to strengthen your voice

When performing make sure you stand with your legs shoulder width apart, chest lifted up, and shoulders stretched back and relaxed. By doing this it will increase the amount of air flow produced when singing. Once your posture is sorted the next step is to make sure you are breathing properly. This is done by making sure you are only moving your stomach when inhaling and exhaling. 

HOT TIP! Remember to relax and do your vocal warm up and warm down in full when learning how to strengthen your voice.

How to strengthen your voice with larynx position

When you first started singing it was better for the larynx to be stable but as you become more advanced you will be able to control the larynx the way you want to. Making a yawning dopey sound will push the larynx down and allow you to go higher. This is good to use when doing vocal scales as it allows you to sing without tension.

How to strengthen your voice

HOT TIP! When learning how to strengthen your voice it’s important to drink lots of water as it will help, not only because it is good for your health but it can also help with your singing. Being well hydrated means your mucus membranes can function at its best and help you hit those certain notes. 

How to strengthen your voice with tongue position

This may sound strange, but your tongue plays a bigger role than you may think. Bringing your tongue forward, making sure the tip of the tongue is touching the bottom of your teeth, will allow more airspace to help produce a more vibrant, resonating sound to your vocal. If you pull your tongue down towards your throat, this will create a deeper and darker tone to your voice.

HOT TIP! Record yourself singing! Even if you don’t like listening to yourself this will help determine where you need improving, and it’s a brilliant way to track your progress.
