How to sing with a softer voice to sound good

Isn’t it frustrating when your voice breaks time an time again? Is there a way to instantly stop this? Try this method when you are getting down on your knees for bad reasons! Sing very soft! I mean barely make a peep and try and sing the vocal melody you are frustrated with.

What is the science behind it you ask? well, for most people chances are you are using too much air to sing and consequently are causing an air pressure imbalance in your singing; thus, it doesn’t sound good or it hurts. When you are singing softly you are giving your chords a break from this tornado of air.

This will give you the chance to learn the right sensation. What do I mean sensation? By sensation I mean what it feels like to sing right. Chances are if you follow the good rules of no pushing, not holding on with your throat, or feeling any tension at all, then you’ll probably get what you want to sing when you sing softly. The discovery secret is that your mind and body will discover how free singing feels when done light and right, instead of heavy and wrong. Then, waalaa, try and emulate the same sensation when you start to add volume.

Try some of the singing techniques if you are having trouble connecting.

Remember, light and right is better than loud and wrong.

Here’s a Quick way to Sing High Notes

Have you ever been frustrated because some days you can sing high, and some days you can’t-no matter what you do?

well here is a tip designed for singing high, quickly. The great thing about this tip is that it isjohn nemeth band at legends really quick. Basically your about to learn how to

  • Get into you high register easily, everytime

  • sing high notes or that high note in a song everytime

  • learn the trick to ascending in your range without tension

OK, without anymore rambling, the name of this technique is the whisper/hold your breath technique(which is uniquely named by me). The whisper/hold your breath technique is executed by the following procedure: 1) act like you are holding your breath underwater 2) make a singing note while letting only a little air out and still holding back the rest. 3) Once you have the note, you may carefully release some of the air and pressure you are holding back for volume purposes. Now the phenomenon of holding your breath and singing is the key to this technique. Try ascending in your range and as you go up hold more breath back(or air same substance).

watch the video on whisper/breath hold technique here if you have trouble.

If done properly, you should be able to hit higher notes immediately that prior to this technique were giving you trouble(assuming you don’t have any other vocal complications like a dehydrated voice). The science behind this exercise is simple but counterintuitive; however, most individuals do the opposite of this science.

First, your vocal chords vibrate as air passes through. The lower the note, the more of the vocal chords that vibrate; hence, more air. As you ascend in your range your vocal chords zip up and less of the actual chords are vibrating; hence, YOU NEED LESS AIR TO HIT HIGHER NOTES!!!! Many people hear Brian Mcknight or Mariah Carey hit a high note so powerful one’s mind would think that he or she would need more air to do that and most people shout or yell with more air to sound like these superstars; however, its just the opposite. I bet right now your saying “Gosh, that’s why I can’t get those high notes”.

anyone who tries to push there way to singing high will have a better chance of walkingGreat Wall of China through the GREAT WALL OF CHINA! That’s why you don’t push when you sing, but you hold back as you go up.

Here is a Method that is helping Singers to Sing High

Woooo! Mostly everyone will admire a singer who may sing high.

Even when the singer is not that great, once they hit a high note that is sung well, people give them applause. Mostly every person has the ability to sing high.

Many vocal students are told that their genetics have pre determined how high and well a person may sing; therefore, if you can’t sing high already, don’t expect to ever sing high-just leave it  to the people who were blessed with those special genetics.

Well, that’s a lie. Mostly everyone has the ability to sing high, its just you have to learn how to do it. This will help you sing high as soon as you finish reading this. Also, learn how to build a strong voice for long term singing success.

First tip: Sing without tension. To sing without tension you must relax the muscles around your throat and your jaw.

There are many exercises  that you may do to help you reduce and stop tension. Number one is lip bubbles. Others are tongue trills, and special exercises. Go to the singing techniques page to learn these exercises; then, go to the singing lessons page to practice these exercises to a live piano!

The first special exercise that will be introduced will be the (NG) exercise.

Open your mouth and make a sound like (NG) and go all the way up in your range to all the way down until you get used to it.

Here are the ground rules: don’t push as you slide up, don’t strain, if you feel like your going to break-just let it break, plug your ears with your hands so you may become conscious of what your voice sounds like.

One concept that you must understand when singing high is that you need to use less air.

Think about it; as your vocal chords come together to sing a note higher than the one before, your vocal chords are thinning out and using less of the vocal cord to vibrate; therefore, if your vocal chords are using less to vibrate, you need less air to make them vibrate-make sense!

People who try to push their way through will never get it, because it’s the opposite of what their trying to do-less air.

Who ever said that singing was hard? It is easier to sing high than it is low, get it-it just may seem alittle more uncomfortable at first, but you’ll get used to it.

Keep Doing the exercises mentioned here and you will sing higher, and fast!

Long Live Singing

Get rid of jaw Tension and sing Higher FASTER

One of the many limiting factors that hinders singers is jaw tension. When one is singing, the jaw should never be in such a tight position that it can’t move, or it feels tight. It is really sweet when you get rid of this bad boy. You’ll feel so much freer and your tone will reflect this freedom because it will sound so pure and sweet! In this article we are going to delve into
    • what creates jaw tension
    • how to stop it
    • how you know when your jaw is not affecting your singing!
Jaw tension is created by the jaw muscles tightening up due to a number of events: 1) a person feels he or she needs to push in order to sing high so this causes the jaw muscles to tense 2) a person is trying to  use their jaw muscles to help his or her singing 3) a person has not properly warmed up.
All of the above circumstances may induce jaw tension and affect one’s singing; in addition, this list is by no means exhaustive.
Now how does one stop jaw tension? First, one must consciously relax the muscles of the jaw. While you are singing, actively relax the muscles of your jaw. Second, is a jaw tension relief exercise. To do this you must hold your chin with your hand, then start to sing, and while you are singing move  your chin back and forth. This will develop your singing free of jaw tension!!!
The other key exercise is to put your index finger on your jaw, stick your tongue out as far as you can, and say yah..yah..yah.. on a scale. The most important part of this exercises pertaining to jaw tension, is keeping your finger in place. You must make sure your jaw doesn’t move, and that is what your finger is there for. With all of these in your arsenal, you should be able to train yourself to sing without the assistance of your jaw muscles!
Now is your opportunity to use these exercises on my singing lessons page. Press the play buttons to sing along with different piano tracks, they all will work wonders!
You will know that you aren’t singing with jaw tension because your tone will sound free; moreover, it will feel easier to sing. Your notes will feel like they are floating from your throat instead of slowly being produced. Most importantly, when you put your hands on your jaw muscles while you are singing, these muscles will be inactive.

Do you still believe the myth about supporting from your Diaphragm

There are alot of myths regarding vocal technique these days that are still taught primarily in schools and choirs; especially the myth about support from the diaphragm. This principle in singing is so often botched that the main principle is so misunderstood and the student ends up being frustrated. What is even more ironic is the fact that singers who swear they have the technique right don’t realize that the diaphragm support is not at the forefront of their vocal success. Therefore, we are going to delve into the myths and legends about the diaphragm; then, you are finally going to learn the truth about the diaphragm.

Myth #1: Some people can’t sing high because they don’t have enough support from their diaphragm, that’s why the notes don’t come out and thats why the notes sound strained.

Truth: Your one question to their criticism is “How can you not sing without the diaphragm?” You see your diaphragm is working even when you are talking. Teachers may tell you “your not using your diaphragm, that’s why” but that is not the case. There is no way physiologically possible that anyone may sing without engaging the diaphragm.

Myth 2: “Your diaphragm should be rock hard when you sing, especially high. This is indicative of good support!”

Truth: a hard stomach that is pushed out to its maximum is just telling you that you are using too much air! You might push so hard that the wrong thing comes out of the wrong end! Your stomach should be rigid no matter how you sing, but not hard like taught in school.

Myth 3: “enough support will allow you to push more air which will allow you to sing higher and sound clearer!”

Truth: Pushing from your diaphragm will only get your high notes strained, and your tone production will sound strained. You see, to sing high you must you less air, not more. People who claim they use their diaphragm to sing high are deluded by the psychosomatic aspect of singing. They think that is the reason why they sound good when really it is due to fact of good vocal technique.

Ok, now that you know a couple of the myths regarding support from the diaphragm, now you need to know the truth relating to the diaphragm and singing.

The truth is, you use your diaphragm no matter how you sing. However, because singing is just extended talking, you fill up your lungs with more air to support your notes that are held out longer, that’s the only difference. every human being can take a deep breath, it is very rare that a singer will need help with breathing, usually this means you are handicapped or need medical attention.

When you take a regular deep breath, like everybody knows how to do, your diaphragm is already supporting your air-just like it was made to do. Singers who have vocal problems have them because of things like jaw tension, unstable larynx, bad vocal technique, pushing from the DIAPHRAGM, and many OTHER reasons.

So don’t be fooled and frustrated by out of touch vocal teachers. Do your self a favor and learn the fast easy way to sing.

Go to my singing techniques page and learn this tricks that will get you to sing high fast. Then go to my singing lessons page to practice these techniques to a live piano, its like having your own internet teacher!!

Build a Strong Vocal Range

Wow! OMG! That person can really sing

is what you usually hear or feel anytime you experience a singer who sings high in the stratoshere. I know that I always used to gawk and fantasize about singing high and wondering when I would finally be able to do  it. I knew I could get there, but I wanted it quick.

Of course, I started out by pushing, straining, and squeezing to get my high notes out, but that never really helped-only hurt. Now that I am able to sing any note I wish it feels good and liberating. So here I am about to delve into how to build a strong range in three steps. 1.) good exercises 2.) good health 3.) persistance

Step number one- good exercises. If you are really want to sing high with a powerful high or low range then you must incorporate some foundational exercises to get you there. Check out my singing lessons page daily to do your exercises or check out the singing techniques page for a list of exercises, how to do them, and examples. To develop a good high range you must learn how to go through your chest voice to your head voice without breaking or switching to falsetto. Mostly everyone is capable of doing this its just that it takes some time.

Doing an exercise like a high pitched nay, nay, nay, or a low pitched wuh, wuh, wuh will definetly teach your how to go through your chest to head registers smoothly. Just remember the ground rules: it should feel easier as you go up, no pushing, tight abs, or strain in the throat, work on being relaxed. All the exercises on this site focus on accomplishing this task, so feel free to use all that are mentioned and at any pace you like.

Step 2.) You must be saying yeah I know good health..good health..heard it before. Well, if you’ve heard it before and you’re still not implementing it, you should continue to read this for your edification.

In short, exercise improves one’s circulation which improves the quality of your singing. I have always noticed that after I have worked out I am ready and able to hit some very nice high notes and it still occurs. Make this a daily part of your life to be active, it will facilitate your singing high journey.

Step 3.) Persistance. If you give up after three weeks or a couple of months then you won’t experience the awesomeness that comes with persistance in terms of your vocal abilities. It is paramount that you continue to “grab the bull by the horns” and sing everyday with keeness.

For example, when I practice I am in tune with what my muscles are doing in my throat, how much air I am using, where the sound is resonating, where I want it to go, what sounds I shall produce after that and so much more. In essence I’m telling you that you must be focused when you practice. Eventually if you persevere and keep good singing habits, people will hands down admire you as a great singer.

Keep up the great singing

Are you sick of Singing with Tension?


Whether you’re a singer or not, everybody on this planet HATES vocal tension!

When a singer is singing with tension in a song everyone cringes. Any singer who is dealing with tension while singing also hates that feeling as well. It’s just a universal thing. But is there a way to get rid of this little crook? or must one learn to cope with the inevitable? The good news is that you can unlearn vocal tension, or break the bad habit if you will. The bad news is most people give up, don’t have the right techniques, or don’t have the right knowledge necessary to smash this ugly phenomenon. That’s what this article is for, is to show you that you can beat vocal tension! But first, let’s look at what causes vocal tension.
Vocal tension arises from bad vocal technique, essentially. When people sing with their swallowing muscles engaging that is when the sound they produce becomes strained and unpleasant. The outer muscles of the larynx(swallowing muscles) engage when too much or not enough air pressure is used to keep the chords together. Since the vocal chords aren’t able to stay together for that certain range in one’s voice, the outer muscles of the larynx come in and try to hold them.
One must realize that the outer muscles of the larynx remain inefficient in holding the chords together; that’s why they are OUTER MUSCLES!! The inner muscles of the larynx are the proper muscles that one must use to sing tension free.
If you are currently singing with tension then you should know that this tension seriously limits your range!! When you eliminate this you will almost DOUBLE your range.
There are two steps that will help you to eliminate vocal tension:
1. warm up your voice. It sounds simple and regurgitated, but its so simple so many people don’t do it! They merely get up and sing away. A proper fifteen minute warm-up on easy scales will improve circulation and increase the effectiveness of the inner muscles of the larynx.
2. Use the right singing technique. So what is the right singing technique? It is when the outer muscles of your larynx are relaxed while the inner muscles of the larynx are used to adjust the vocal chords as needed.
But you maybe saying, “How do I stop the outer muscles and use the inner muscles to get my dream voice?” The answer is quite simple. That’s why Singing high was created in the first place. You must go to the singing techniques page and learn these exercises that will teach your inner muscles to engage and your outer muscles to relax. Then you must go to the singing lessons page and play the videos with the piano tracks on them regularly so you may sing tension free, REGULARLY!!!
