Tip 1: Keep It Simple

Beginner vocalists tend to over-complicate everything. But a good vocal performance has nothing to do with complexity. Your technique and performance are far more important.

When you know how to control your breath, select a song that’s in your range, and use your diaphragm to project, you will increase your chances of delivering a great performance and reduce your chances of harming your cords.

Tip 2: Record Your Singing & Listen Back to it.

There is a difference in how you hear your singing and how others hear it. When you hear your own voice for the first time, you might be shocked. You’ll catch all your faults and hear where you’re making mistakes.

With the guidance of a qualified teacher, you’ll learn how to use your vocal cords and larynx to achieve a better sound. The larynx is the muscular organ forming air passage to the lungs.

But first, it’s important to identify your problem areas. It will force you to become a better listener, and whether you’re training to become a singer or instrumentalist, it’s important to have a good ear.

Tip 3: Avoid Tensing Up & Get Comfortable While Singing

Get comfortable while you are singing. Avoid tensing up and straining your voice. Pick a song that’s in your range, and only use techniques you’re familiar and comfortable with.

Don’t worry about what other people are thinking while you’re singing. This can make you nervous and cause you to tense up unnecessarily. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. All beginners make mistakes, so make note of where things went wrong, so you can revisit sections you’re having trouble with and work on them.

Tip 4: Warm Up

It’s important to warm up your voice before singing, whether you’re practicing or performing.

Professional athletes always warm up before a match. Before putting themselves through any rigorous exercise, they often do some stretching and light jogging.

Warming up your voice before each session will cause your voice to fatigue less and reduce the chances of damaging it.

Tip 5 : Drink Plenty of Water.

Drink plenty of water. Even famous singers recommend drinking at least eight glasses of water per day.

Drinking water helps you bring vibration and modulation to your voice. Your tongue plays an important role in singing, and if you aren’t drinking enough water, it will make it harder to pronounce as effectively. Your vocals will not sound as good dehydrated.
