Regular Practice Sharpens Your Singing Skills

Feb 11, 2008
Practice makes perfect, as the saying goes and the skill of singing is no exception to this rule. First of all, you should practice for at least thirty minutes each day. Once you have disciplined yourself to do this, there are certain guidelines you can follow during your practice sessions.

- Find a music teacher who will teach you in the style you choose. Ask as many questions as you feel necessary and meet up with your teacher to get a feel for whether of not he or she will be the right music tutor for you. Your tutor will assist you with your goal setting and guide you in how to achieve those goals.
- Make sure you warm up properly prior to starting you practice session.
- Make a recording of your voice singing a certain song along with the vocal exercises which you want to learn during your practice session.
- Choose your song and sing it as properly and beautifully as you can when making your recording and you will be able to use this as a reference to monitor your improvement by.
- Throughout your practice session concentrate fully on one difficulty. This way you will work through each part of singing, improving steadily instead of trying to solve all your frustrations at one time.
- When you feel like you need a break, take half an hour out. Sometimes the repetition can result in you feeling a bit like a robot and you will not accomplish anything when you feel this way - it will only lead to more mistakes.
- Makes notes throughout your practice. That is, notes of your progress and your mistakes.
- Cold drinks are not recommended after your practice.

There are some other important factors which affect your singing skills and one of them is smoking. This will swell and aggravate your vocal chords. Your career relies on your voice, so make sure to take the best care of it. Alcohol is also not good for your vocal chords. If trying to put some volume behind your voice involves straining, then it is best to use a microphone adjusted to meet your particular requirements.

The fine tuning and conditioning of your voice, as well as your actions, definitely affects your singing. When you perform your singing, at the same time practice your body actions because singing isn't just about what comes out of your mouth. Positive body language is essential when connecting with your audience.

If you practice on a regular basis your singing will improve no end. Try to integrate your singing practice into your daily routine because little and often is far more effective than once a week practicing for a longer period of time. Remember, above all to have fun and enjoy yourself singing skills.
