- Take care of your health –
- Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water every day as this helps the membranes which produce the sound perform their best.
- In case of a cold, don’t strain your voice and also ensure you consume something that helps soothe your throat.
- Quit smoking as it damages your lungs and throat.
- Avoid Spicy food, alcohol, milk products, nuts, and coffee.
- Warm up before singing –
Your vocal cords just like other muscles in your body require a warm up before you exercise them. How you can do this is by practicing both the chest and head voices. You can look up the internet for some model exercises.
- Practice –
Just like your Gyming or other physical work out sessions, singing too requires practice. It is important to train every single day to keep on track. Everyday practice will eventually lead to stronger vocal cords and an improved voice.
- Sing songs you are comfortable with –
Sometimes the best way to pick the positives in your voice is to sing the songs that you sing the best. Challenges are good as long as they are within manageable limits, so ensure you don’t put yourself on the line to challenge yourself.
- Record your voice to listen to yourself –
Even if you are someone with a blessed voice, it is essential to confirm that’s not just something you think. So it’s vital to record and listen to yourself sing as that helps you understand areas you need to work on and also to strengthen your strengths.
- Express emotions while singing –
Music, in general, is all about the feelings you have inside of you and how much of that you can bring to the forefront through your performance. Singing also demands the singer to do the same. If you don’t feel the lyrics and the composition of the song you’re singing, it will not bring out your best performance. And trust me, the difference is of an unmeasurable magnitude.
- Sing quietly –
Although most people tend to sing louder to make up for wrong notes, that’s the path for amateurs. Doing this will damage your vocal cords and also ends up making your voice sound cranky instead of the powerful you were going for. So don’t strain your voice and work on achieving a soft voice by making corrections to your breath and body language.
- Utilize your breath and body –
- The best advice is to avoid tension in your neck and shoulders. Also, unlock your knees and control your breathing.
- The best thing to do is to breathe right into your belly instead of your chest and not move your shoulders while you breathe in.
- When you’re singing high notes, it is advised to think down as there is a tendency to lift your chin when you’re hitting top notes.
