A Couple Singing Techniques The Aspiring Singer Has To Know

in Practice
Hello my fellow singing friend! So you want to become the next Michael Jackson? Or a rockstar? Or just beat all your friends at the next karaoke night?

Well singing is really not that hard. If you know a couple of singing techniques a lot of people will start to compliment and admire your singing skills! So read on - singing excellence is just a few tips from here.

First: Start slow like a beginner

Most aspiring singers want to become like their idols in just days. But honestly - singing is a skill like any other skill: To really excell you need to practice, practice and practice again (and learn the techniques too).

So don't search for a quick fix - there is no quick fix to become a great singer. Just take it slow and start with easy songs. Many beginners want to sind high notes way too fast.

Then they try to sing a song containing many high notes, fail horrible and think they are hopeless. That is the wrong way to start singing! Start slow with easy songs, build confidence and the high notes will come eventually.

Second: Build a singers confidence

This one is incredible huge! Some singing teachers I've met told me that singing great versus singing horrible is up top eighty percent a mind thing!

So to sing great you first have to develop the mind power of great singers. Confidence is really everything in singing and the sooner you start to acquire confidence the sooner you will see results.

The problem occuring most often with new singers is just what I would call the fear of singing. You are afraid of singing in public right? Or even in front of just two friends? Well this really cripples your singing talent! The only cure is to practice, learn the techniques and then jump straight into action.

Third: Singing in the right posture

This is a huge on too! Singing is mostly about breathing. If you breathe wrong your voice will sound like - well - it will sound awful.

So how can you make sure that your voice sounds the best? Standing in the right position for singing allows the oxygen in your body (your breath) to flow more freely and so helps you to sing high notes (or to sing at all).

When you first start out I would recommend to just stand straight (don't sit) and don't dance. When you are a more experienced singer you can begin to experiment with your singing posture.

Fourth: Do not sing when you are sick

Well this is almost a no brainer but I always see singing talents who miss this one. Read it and never forget it: Singing when you are sick or feel pain can damage your voice permanently!

Yes that is right: Permanently. So when you encounter the usual winter cold just step down from the stage for two weeks or at least until you are fully cured.

Your singing voice not only sounds awful when you are sick but also it is like beating a dog with a stick for hours (this is at least what your vocal cords - the singers instrument - will feel like). So do yourself a favor and don't sing when you are sick.

Well that were my four singing tips. If you obey them and practice a lot one day you will become an awesome singer too! I wish you all the best.
