Singing Tips
 
Take singing lessons but be sure to seek out a qualified teacher. Check their references. Look at their training and/or schooling as well as their work history.

Practice singing in front of a mirror. This will help you notice posture, airflow, facial expressions, and overall how you appear to an audience.

Open your mouth! Yea, yea, I know... most people are trying to get you to shut up. Well, if you can learn to sing with your mouth "very" wide open, you will hit clearer notes and sing more strongly and cleanly overall.

Keep your vocal chords moisturized. Drink lots of water or liquids at room temperature.

Try not to hold your breath when you're singing. You want the air to flow freely through your diaphragm and back out.

Remember, your vocal chords are an instrument and it must be cared for like an instrument. Be sure to get proper rest and do not shout or scream for long periods of time before a vocal performance.

Sing with a karaoke machine. This is a great tool to allow you to "have the floor". It provides the words and the back-up musicians. Just be sure to balance it out later on with real musicians. There is quite a big difference when performing professionally and you need to get used to the live performance arena

Don't just mouth the words with melody. SING!...from the bottom of your heart and soul. Put heart, feeling, and emotion into every line and sing with conviction. This will translate into an outstanding performance for the listener.

Don't drink, do drugs, or smoke. These are the worst things ever for your voice.

Stay away from air-conditioning before a vocal performance.

Don't audition for American Idol. Its a joke and a slap in the face of real musicians who worked hard to get where they are. Leave the karaoke at the bar. You will learn to appreciate your accomplishments if you actually earn them, rather than winning a popularity contest.

Like any musical discipline, I think that listening to great performers helps you hone your sound and technique. I even suggest singing along with great recordings, trying to match the vocalist exactly. Then, after you've learned their way, you have some new techniques and the ability to create your own interpretation of the piece of music. :cool:

Re: Singing Tips
 
Don't forget about listening to recordings of singers from earlier times. For example, recordings of tenor Enrico Caruso are some of the earliest recordings of classical music.

Re: Singing Tips
 
Don't ask someone if they are a singer or a musician as singers are offended by this. (Singers are obviously musicians, too.) Ask instead if they are a singer or an instrumentalist. Or, you can ask whether they are a vocalist or play an instrument.

Re: Singing Tips
 
Just as instrumentalists should listen to singers to emulate the voice in their playing, singers can likewise learn new musical techniques from listening to and copying the playing of talented instrumentalists. Don't know where to start? Listen to some famous instrumental works or musicians and find what you like.

Re: Singing Tips
 
In classical music, the voice should have a "spinning" quality to the tone. Some of this is created by a natural vibrato. The rest is done by creating a resonance from the way your mouth is shaped that brings out well-formed overtones. Study with a vocal instructor can help.

Re: Singing Tips
 
Motions of the body and arms can help you to be more expressive and technically able in your singing, especially if you are a kinesthetic learner - one who learns by feeling.

Re: Singing Tips
 
If you sing pop, gospel, soul, rock, blues, or even jazz, even the occasional voice lesson from a well qualified instructor can put you ahead of the competition. Consider a classical instructor. You don't have to use everything you are taught in performance. If you can transfer some of the techniques, though, you can better maintain your vocal health and prevent nodules or scarring that will shorten your career.

Re: Singing Tips
 
Consider singing as part of a group, even if your main interest is solo work. It can really open up your ears to singing better on pitch and blending your voice to match other sounds.
