How Do Singers Breathe While Singing?

Some breathe very poorly, but others breathe with proper singing technique. The proper way to breathe is from your diaphragm, or your stomach/abdomen. You want to take a deep breath, imagining your breath going to the bottom of your stomach or even imagining your breath filling up your toes and your arms. This is going very deep. You want to really feel a deep breath. Some singers have very shallow breathing from their chest and shoulders. That's not proper breathing for singing. You want to have a deep breath that fills up your abdomen and even your lower back as you inhale and a consistent breath going out as you exhale. There are a bunch of different breathing exercises that you can do to increase the technique that you use. Have much better-quality technique for breathing as you sing.

The Straw Singing Exercise

One of those exercises is the straw exercise I teach my students. You let all your air out and hold it and then you breathe in on eight counts through the straw. I call that breathing through the straw. Get a deep breath then you hold it again for eight counts and then you breathe out on a ssss sound. A sustained consistent breath for as long as you can. The minimum I usually say 16 beats. That really helps build your stomach muscles and helps you learn to breathe with your diaphragm. If you're having trouble breathing with your stomach, you can lie on your back and that can help you feel that deep breath. You want to feel like there's a watermelon in your stomach as you inhale. Just like your stomach just expands and sometimes lying on your back will help you get that feeling.

How Do Singers Change Their Voice?

Now if you want to change your voice, the first thing that you want to do is learn about placement. If you're not placing your voice forward enough or back enough, or you're having some trouble with that, then you're not going to be able to have control over how your voice sounds, such as the tone. So, take some voice lessons. Take a free trial lesson with Teach 2 Teach. If you would like to learn a little bit about how to change your voice to be more forward, more back, more rounded or whatever the problem is. Learning placement I feel is the biggest thing for changing your voice.

How Do Singers Damage Their Voice?

Singers damage their voice by using an improper technique. A lot of it is over singing. Singing too much or too loudly or with the wrong placement. Make sure you're not just copying somebody’s style of singing and don't really know what you're doing. Make sure that you're using good technique, learning what proper technique is and finding your own voice and your own style before you just try to copy the most popular trend out there. You might not be doing it right and you could really damage your voice.

You can edit your voice using any kind of music editing software. You can auto tune it if you want you can add the reverb, stuff like that. There are all sorts of cool things that you can do when you are doing some vocal editing.

How Do Singers Feel When They Sing?

This can be emotionally or physically. They should be feeling comfortable. Relax and do a lot of singing from muscle memory. You want to have practice proper technique so that it comes very naturally for you. Emotionally, the singer should feel engaged with their audience and with the piece that they're performing. They should feel confident and they should feel enthusiastic. I'm not sure that all singers feel that way, but I think that's the way that singers should feel when they're singing.

How Do Singers Get Noticed?

If you want to get noticed I would say the best thing to do is collaboration videos with different people that are in the same industry, different singers and musicians. Get out there and make some friends with other people trying to do the same thing that you're doing. That's the best way to get noticed. Find some good friends that can help you out with that.

How Do Singers Hear Themselves?

A lot of times there are either speaker monitors on stage that are projecting the singer's voice back to them, or increasingly common, in ear monitors. The singer will be wearing ear phones so that they can hear themselves and the other band members that are performing with them. If you're singing and just want to hear your own voice, then a lot of times you'll see singers plug their ear with their finger. You won't hear your tone of voice exactly like your audience is hearing it but that can really help you to make sure that you're on pitch and you're singing the correct notes.

How Do Singers Make It?

You really make it when you are being able to make a living doing what you want to do. I think that's what ‘make it’ means. You can make a living doing what you love (singing) by making consistent money doing it. Play lots of gigs. Make sure that people know about you. Do some great marketing or partner with someone that's going to help you do some great marketing. Make sure you're doing plenty of collaboration like I was saying before. Really doing the work and not being afraid of it.

How Do Singers Keep from Losing Their Voice?

This is an important one for singers. The most important thing I can ever tell singers is to use proper singing technique. This is more important for singers than any other type of musician. If you use a poor technique for other instruments, it matters, but if you use a poor technique for your voice, it's a big deal. You can really hurt yourself and you can really lose your speaking voice. It's big deal so you want to make sure that you're doing the right thing and you are using proper technique, especially for your type of voice. Some practical tips are to rest your voice, warm up and cool down before and after singing, make sure that you stay hydrated with lukewarm water. You don't want it to be too hot or too cold. Make sure you're not overdoing it. Don’t sing too much, or out of your range or sing something that you're not ready to sing yet. One thing that can help is gargling. I've gargled with a mixture of things like a half teaspoon of salt and a half teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water. You mix it up and you gargle with it. That can help your voice if you're feeling a little off and you need to sing. That can kind of help give your voice a little boost and make it easier for you.

How Do Singers Remember Lyrics?

There are two ways that I like to learn my lyrics. 1) practice. Practice over and over. The more repetition you have the better. Singing is a wonderful way to memorize anything. Your voice just tends to remember things as it's put to song. Just practice and go over it as much as possible. 2) have it make sense. This is especially important if you're singing in a different language. Learn what it means. Learn what story you're telling or what's going on in the piece you're performing. That can help you not only to memorize it but also to put the correct emotion into the piece as you're singing it.
