Most singers can feel and hear their problem spots. “If your voice feels good and sounds good it probably is good. If it
  3. 3. feels bad and sounds good, something is wrong,” says JeannetteLoVetri, director of The Voice Workshop in New York City. As a voice instructor for more than 35 years, LoVetri knows a thing or two about getting the most out of your voice. Similar to musicians play an instrument, singers must make sure their technique is correct to avoid injury. “If you can’t make yourself sound good and feel good, go get help from a skilled singer or teacher,” says LoVetri. “If that doesn’t help, seek out an otolaryngologist or throat specialist and get examined right away. Vocal problems that are ignored can lead to serious issues down the road, both vocal and in general health.” If you’re confident your voice is where you want it to be, there are still plenty of exercises you can do on your own to get optimum sound. LoVetri shares top tips to become a better singer by ensuring vocal health and improving pitch and range:
  4. 4. 1) Breathe Easy. In order to breathe efficiently for singing, a vocalist has to have excellent postural alignment.The rib cage needs to be open, lifted, and strong, and the inhalation needs to go deep into the torso, as the lungs inflate downward and outward. The abdominal muscles should work to keep the chest lifted and open but not be locked and hard and should release slightly forward and down during inhalation. During exhalation, the ribs should maintain their lifted and open position through the sung sounds, while the abdominal muscles contract and lift in a slow steady way. 2) Heads up. The head should be level, not in front of the torso. The legs should be shoulder width apart with the knees unlocked. The weight should be slightly forward over the balls of the feet and the spine should feel stretched long. The neck should be loose and the upper chest should
  5. 5. remain lifted and open at all times, but not rise during inhalation. 3. Build Your Way Up To Fame A common misconception about fame in the music industry is that it will come overnight. It’s easy to see someone in the charts for the first time, and assume they haven’t been working hard for some time leading up to that. In reality, this isn’t normally the case. If you want to be a famous singer, you will need to work at it. You won’t start out doing world tours or writing number one hits. You need to work your way up the ladder. Start out by aiming to become known with your family and friends. When they recognize your talents and let you know you’re genuinely good enough, network out and start to build up your name in different areas. Start establishingyour name in your local area, on online music forums,
  6. 6. on already establishedYouTube channels, on local radio stations and the like. Once you have this local market covered and people are talking about you, expand once again. Each time aim to conquer a bigger market, using the buzz you gained in the previous area to get more people to give you a chance. This is the best way to become a famous musician, one stage at a time. 4. Have A Unique Selling Point If You Want To Become A Famous Singer
  7. 7. A unique selling point, USP for short, is a way to differentiateyourself from the crowd. You don’t want to be doing the same thing as every other singer out there; if you are, what’s going to make people buy into you over the others? Your USP doesn’t have to be anything big, but it has to be noticeable. It could be that you structure your songs differently, that you have a voice that’s different from the norm, or simply that you do what you do at a much higher level than everyone else. Yes, that in itself is a unique selling point, as people will see they can only get the best by being a fan of yours. If you don’t already have a USP, you may want to think about creating one. Once you do, make sure it’s clear to people what it is. Sometimes it will be tangible, but other times you will have to drop it into the conversation via interview or on your website, etc. Don’t say “My USP is”, instead say “I like to do *this* which I don’t think is something fans get anywhere else”. This will help make you sound
  8. 8. like you’re thinking of them, and also put the idea in their mind that you stand out in some way. This is an important step if you want to be a well-knownsinger. 5 Reach for the stars. If a singer wants to improve his vocal range, he should sing lightly, in an easy sound, allowing his throat to relax on the way up, gently putting more pressure on the muscles of the abdomen at the same time. If this is done carefully, it can help raise the vocal range. If he wants to develop the lower range, he should relax his throat as much as possible, allow the jaw to fall down and sing sustained sounds like AH or OH at the lowest pitches he can sustain, taking care not to strain, until he can make them louder by pressing harder on the belly muscles. Long slides on lip trills or tongue trills are helpful both going up and down. Since it is possible to squeezehigh notes, just singing them without some care and attention to comfort would be a bad idea. Low notes can be swallowed or
  9. 9. pushed, if done incorrectly, and that can cause other problems. It’s best to do developmentof range slowly, a little at a time. 6 Tune up. Most people who have difficulty matching pitch have coordination problems within the vocal system. Singers learn to tune the throat and mouth as a resonating tube to the pitch being sung on various vowels at various volume levels. It is easy to have poor control over all of these ingredients,particularly in specific pitch ranges, and that will effect intonation. Training and practice should take care of this unless the problem is severe. 7. Market Yourself As A Singer
  10. 10. If you want to become a famous singer, you will need to learn how to market yourself. That, or you will need someone to market for you. If you haven’t got the budget to pay someone to market you, then it’s all down to you. You may want to check out our marketing for musician guide for tips and advice on how you can do this. Marketing is the process of raising awareness of yourself as a singer. The first step in getting your fans is letting people know you exist. Second is making them be open to listening to you. This is a much trickier job than it sounds, so don’t underestimatehow much work is required to make this happen. With all the other singers and musicians fighting for people’s attention, music fans have become overwhelmedwith the choice available to them. The result? Many people are blocking out most artist that throw themselvestheir way.
  11. 11. Even if you’re giving away a free download, the majority of people will actively ignore it. Giving out a free CD? A lot of the time it’ll end up on a shelf never to be listened to. It has become increasingly difficult to market yourself as a musician, but with the right knowledge it is possible. Being a famous singer will require you to have a lot of fans, so if this is what you want to achieve, then you need to get your marketing hat on asap. Without it, you simply won’t reach your goals. OK, so here are three other tips teaching you how to become a famous singer. Point number8 is especially important, so make sure you read on to the end: 8. Learn How To Sing Properly OK, so this may seem like an obvious point, but if you aren’t a good enough singer you’ll never, never become a famous singer. You can market yourself all you want, but if people don’t want to listen to you, you’ll never move forward in your singing career.
  12. 12. It’s never a bad idea to take singing lessons if you haven’t already, so you may want to look into that. Alternatively, you can always take an online singing course which is a lot cheaper than the hourly rates many vocal teachers charge. Either option is good, as strengthening your voice and improving your vocal range can only be good for your music career as a whole. Ultimately,your goal should be to be the best you can be. Britney Spears is not an impressive singer. Neither is Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips. There are plenty of others that can hold their own, in their own unique way (they’ve developed their USP), but aren’t necessarily at the top of their game. Nevertheless,they are famous. It’s true that being undeniablygood will open doors that being so-so simply won’t. But you don’t need to be Idina Menzel either. You can make up for your weaknesseswith image, branding, marketing, and attitude.
  13. 13. But don’t fool yourself about how good you are (or aren’t), because that can come back to bite you in the butt later. Get an honest opinion from someone you trust. If you’re tone-deaf, you’re in trouble. But most of the time, there is a way to progress and to improve as a singer, and that’s the path you should follow. 9. Collaborate With Musicians And Industry Figures That Are Bigger Than You The art of using other’s authority is one of the best ways to get yourself known. One of the quickest ways of getting in front of a relevant audience is working with someone who already has an establishedaudience in your niche. If you
  14. 14. can get this person to recommend you or be on a song with you, you are going to get in front of their audience, and have the chance for them to become your fans too. You can also study under them as a backing singer, if they are amenable to the idea. While it may be hard to collaborate with someone big in your genre at first, keep working at it. Start with a lesser-knownperson with a decent buzz, and start working with more known artists as you are able. The more you work with others and get your name out there, the more people will want to work with you. As time goes on, you’ll find it easier and easier to get the more prominent collaborations, and your audience will grow at a decent rate as a result. 10. Join A Band & Generate A Ton Of Interest In The Music What do you do when you’ve been putting your best foot forward for years, and you still can’t
  15. 15. find success and fame as a singer? You take charge of the situation. There are many bands looking for great singers. Working with a talented singer can make a huge difference for them, because signing duties often fall to the bass player or guitarist, who may not be great singers to begin with. 11 About Face. Your face works best when your mouth and jaw can open and close easily and freely, your facial muscles can move without tension, and your eyes are relaxed and alive. 12) Relax, Just Do It. Your throat should never squeeze,tighten, or feel tired or choked up when you sing. 13Practice Makes Perfect.
  16. 16. A good singer should practice for 30 to 45 minutes at least five times a week. The best way to avoid abusing your voice is to get some singing lessons with a qualified teacher who has a track record of success and solid knowledge of vocal function and health. The teacher should sound good when he or she sings. 14 Eat, Drink, and Be Wary. There are no hard and fast rules regarding what a singer should or should not eat just prior to performing. It’s best not to eat too much just before singing because having a full stomach will interfere with inhalation. Generally,singers should be well hydrated at all times, which means drinking at least six to eight glasses of water per day. It might be possible to substitute herbal tea or flavored waters, but soda, coffee, and tea should be limited as they can have a diuretic effect. Why? The vocal folds need to be well lubricated to function properly.
  17. 17. 15 Start your engines. Singers should warm up about an hour before going to the theater or venue, and hum lightly while at the venue until they go on stage. The warm-up depends on what the person is singing. For example, singers should warm up with and in the sounds they expect to sing in the performance. 16 Timing is everything. If the vocalist is in good shape, 20 minutes is enough to warm up. Less would be possible in an experienced singer and more might be necessary in someone who is not very skilled. A warm-up should consist of varied musical patterns that cover the full pitch range, using various vowels and consonants, long and short patterns of notes, and varied volume levels. 17 Play it cool. It’s useful to sing soft “cooing” OOs and AHS on low pitches for about five minutes after a performance as a cool down.
  18. 18. 18) Picking Up Good Vibrations. Vibrato is a side effect of a freely balanced vocal system that is neithervery tight nor loose. It arises naturally after about two years of vocal training in most singers, as long as the singer does not suppress it. If the vibrato is too fast, too wide, or uneven, it is because something is not balanced in the vocal system of the body. Something is too tight or too loose and the vibrato is reflecting that. A good singing teacher ought to be able to correct any vocal problems that are having an impact on the vibrato, but the correction should be indirect.
