How to Sing Checklist, a great topic that is discussed below.

Singing is not just opening your mouth and that’s it. We all have a thinking that everybody knows how to sing. Sure, we all can sing but there is a right way of doing it and there’s the wrong way. Or, we can rephrase that and say, there’s a healthy and sustainable way as opposed to unhealthy and potentially harmful ways.

Pamper Yourself and Your Voice

I’m sure you want your voice to sound as good as it can be and to last your lifetime, whether you dream to be in the prestigious singing profession and having a professional career in music or are purely recreational singer. And like mentioned, the best way to keep your voice sounding great is to keep yourself physically fit and in good overall health. To do this, maintain a healthy diet, adequate sleep, and moderate exercise. Avoid smoking, illegal drugs, and excessive use of alcohol. Your next target should be how to find your singing voice.

In public image, those hard-partying rock star is most often than not, is not real. Most of the recording artists who have had the longest careers have taken good care of themselves and avoided the excesses that prematurely ended the careers of such talents as Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Elvis Presley.

You most certainly need some training on how to sing if you really want to be a serious singer, whether professional or recreational. Aspiring professionals like nurses, engineers and accountants must got to school to pursue their chosen occupation. You can either use an online singing course or find a local teacher and take lessons. Example of online singing courses are Singing Is Easy by Yvonne DeBandi or Singorama by Emily Mander.

Learning how to sing can be fun and exciting with the right teacher or learning program. Whichever method you choose from above, the important thing is for you to know how your vocal apparatus works and avoid voice problems or learn how to deal with it.

The first thing any good teacher or online course should address is your posture and breath support, which allow production of the best vocal tone. The best singing posture is to stand erect but relaxed, with your feet about hip-width apart and one slightly forward. Though not as rigid as a soldier standing at attention, your shoulders should be back and your chest high.

Here is an easy exercise to help you achieve good singing posture. With you arms at your side, stand with your feet hip-width apart. Bring your arms in a rapid circular motion across your body and over your head, rising onto your tiptoes at the same time while taking in a good, deep breath. These are important and it will explain further how to sing in key.

Bring your arms down to your side and let it come down to your toes. This should come natural as you start to exhale. Try to keep you chest and shoulders in the same postition they were in at the top of the stretch as you exhale and bringing your arms down.

Without straining your throat, breath support enabled you to produce a pleasant tone. When you inhale to sing, you should feel expansion all around your midsection. Your diaphragm, abdominal, and spinal muscles should all be working together. During this time your abdominal and spinal muscles should all be working together as well as your diaphragm.

Once you have taken in a good breath, breathe out on a hissing sound while trying to maintain the expansion of your midsection. You will learn to sing in a healthy manner and with better tone and less vocal fatigue once you’ve strengthen those muscles. It may take some time, but it is worth it.

The only foundation of how to sing well is the posture and breath support. Tone placement and quality is the next level. The chest, the pharynx (mouth and throat), and the head (sinuses) are the three primary areas where our vocal tone resonates. For lower notes, you use your “Cheast voice” and you use your “head voice” for higher notes.

There are times, that you may want to use the sound coming from both the pharynx and the head. Voice teachers usually call it “mixed tone”. The combination is called mask resonance, because you want to feel the sound vibrations in the area that would be covered by a half-face Halloween mask.

You can feel mask resonance with this simple exercise. Take in a good, well-supported breath. Starting on a high note with the syllable “hoo” or “hee”, slide from the top of your range down to the bottom. It should feel a bit like yawning, and you should feel vibration in the soft palate (roof of your mouth) and in the triangle between your eyes and the bridge of your nose.

You will learn how to sing if you can master these skills. It will take time, effort, and practice, but if you work patiently and consistently, you will see results.
