The Vocal Warm Up ( Yes this is so so important )
Ask any singing teacher what most beginner singer neglect, they will be telling you warm up before singing. In order to improve your singing voice, vocalization or vocal warm ups are imperative. Warming up before each practice will help to not only improve the sound quality and help increase your range, it will preserve your voice so that you are not sounding and feeling hoarse the next time you practice.
Your Vocal Range ( this is important but first find your range from a good singing teacher and then learn how to sing well with in your range. Are you a bass, baritone, tenor, alto, mezzo or soprano? )
During the warm up process it is important you focus on strengthening and expanding your vocal range. The vocal range is the difference between those low and high notes you can reach. We at Entertainment 88 help you navigate through your chest voice to your mix voice , belt voice and head voice. We do this by teaching you to sing all parts of your voice in a healthy balance balance. This way we can help you hit those high notes without being breathy and also not loud and screechy.
Saying that in the end singing is art, it’s an instrument so as long as you learn how to use all areas of voice correctly then feel free to go nuts and experiment. One of the main ingredients of becoming a fantastic singer is singing with dynamics. Thats means transitioning from a light chest to a mix to head voice and the belt then back to head. This is when the true wonder of singing comes to fruition
Pay Attention to the Throat
While you are trying to improve your singing voice, pay close attention to how your throat feels. If you are singing incorrectly, the throat is going to start to ache. When you have a hoarse feeling in the throat, you are not fully relaxing during singing and the voice is strained. In order to let your vocals vibrate freely, your throat needs to be fully relaxed and you must have an effortless low breath. Drinking lukewarm water will help relieve any discomfort.
One of the best things you can do while learning to improve your singing voice is to keep practicing. Always make sure to do your vocal exercises before each practice, do your scales to work on your vocal range, and make sure the throat is relaxed. Don’t overdo things in an effort to improve too quickly, take some breaks from your singing practice .Get yourself a good singing teacher at at a great singing school in Melbourne. It’s so important to do your research and find teacher who has the skills, discipline, and patience to help you improve your singing voice.

Singing with the Diaphragm ( such an annoying phrase) so many people say you have to do this have no idea what they are talking about
When you are trying to sing better, you must resist the urge to sing from your throat. When you use the throat, you wind up feeling sore the next time out, and you have difficulties breathing. Singing using breath support is so important to learn from a great teacher . Singing with your diaphragm is a load of rubbish. You don’t sing with your diaphragm . The diaphragm is a small muscle under the rib cage that activates when you do a big belly breath. This simply allows you to fill up your lungs with more air. The important part is in learning to control that air going to and through your vocal folds so there is a nice connection and then out into the acoustics or resonance of your mouth and nasal cavities. A good singing teacher will teach you to do all of theses three things in harmony. Don’t be fooled by any teacher who just says sing from your diaphragm. Question them and ask what that actually means. Learning to support the air flow to your vocal folds will give you a smooth sounding singing voice and you will be able to hold those difficult notes much longer.
Learn to Breathe Properly ( again you way to much by singing teachers )
First just take a breath and sing . Over time a great singing teacher will slowly teach you to take great and quick belly breaths . It’s the way we are born to sing. Watch a baby breathe. Tere belly goes out on the in breath and in out on th in the breath. Think you take around 20 thousands breaths a day and if you have been doing the wrong way for 20 years its going to take patience and a while to re teach the brain to breathe properly for singing. And yes it does involve activating the diaphram. You just don’t sing from your diaphragm , you sing by taking a breath controlling that air flow to vibrate and connect your vocal fold then make the sound by resonating through and out of your mouth and nasal area. It’s that simple.
