Vocal training involves a lot of dealing with habits. By taking unhelpful habits and replacing them with helpful ones, your voice will improve much quicker. Here are quick essential tips suggested by Nadel Paris to advancement when practicing singing.
1) Listen to yourself:
Most singers hate to listen to their own voices, but you have to get over it, and be objective. How would you expect to improve painting if you never look at your own art? Or cooking if you never eat your own food? Listen back to yourself on recordings, and listen objectively when you are singing. Listen out for healthy tone and absence of strain in the voice. Identify trouble spots and work on them. Seek advice if you don't know how to do that, or don't know what the problem is. If you hear strain, try relaxing the throat, doing extra warm ups over those pitches, and giving extra support.
2) Be Patient
Many singers get very frustrated very quickly if they do not sound brilliant straight away. Being a beginner vocalist is quite challenging for many of us - be kind to your voice and treat it like a child you are trying to educate. Nurture it, and it will grow.
3) Don't just sing songs
Invest the time into gathering appropriate resources to exercise your voice and practice technique. Singing songs over and over will only embed bad habits, especially if its songs that you really love to sing, and don't concentrate on technique while you're practicing.
4) Set yourself a realistic routine
The key to advancement is regular exercise. This does not have to be massive chunks of time - a few minutes focused practice every day or every other day will glean you much greater results than infrequent larger chunks of time. By setting yourself a realistic routine, and scheduling it in your diary, you are much more likely to stick to it, and therefore reach your goals. Aiming to complete an hour a day or any unrealistic schedule will put additional pressure on you, and when you fall behind, you don't feel good about practicing even when you are doing it.
5) Vary your experience
Do as much singing as you can. Try groups, small ensembles, solo or personal coaching, song writing, and different styles of music. The more you get used to singing, and taking part in a range of singing activities, the more comfortable and confident you will feel about your voice, and the more people you will know who are singers too.
