Singing is the way of bringing out your emotions and soul, and to feel relieved. If you have a good voice you must feel proud that you can express your feelings the way you want. However, there are times when you are trying to hit certain notes in the song or sing in a particular way but you cant because either you dont have the vocal range to hit that note or enough practice to nail the song. Thats when a few tips and techniques to sing better can help you go beyond your current limitations and sing your heart out.
There are two ways for you to make your singing voice better: do things that improve your voice and avoid things that prevent your voice from getting better. Today, we will talk specifically about things you should not do in order to keep singing like a bird. The first enemy of your beautiful voice is cold stuff. It is quite difficult to avoid the soda, cola and energy drinks when they are all around you. These drinks, when they are chilled, can have a bad effect on your throat suppressing your vocals and causing pain when you sing.
Smoking is another thing that could make your vocals come from the top to bottom in no time. Smoking is quite injurious to your throat but its main impact is on your lungs. Singing is all about the coordination of your throat and lungs. The more powerful your lungs are the better you can sing. Alcohol and drugs are also some of the most common killers of beautiful voices. Drug abuse has caused many great singers to fall down. The most notable singers in the recent times that have lost their beautiful voices due to drugs are Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse.
Shouting can be a great blow for your voice. It is already pretty well understood that shouting and screaming impacts your voice in a negative way. However, most of the damage is done when you still dont stop singing when your voice is affected. The need to sing a favorite song can become so big at times that you would stand up and try to sing the song with perfection despite your affected voice. This can be fatal for your throat and you must avoid such a practice if you are used to doing it.
Ignoring any infections in your voice for a long time can cause big effects. When you notice some change in your voice and it does not go away for nearly two weeks, it is time for you to visit a doctor and find out whats wrong. If you continue to ignore it, you could end up with worse infection. In addition to that, find the right ways to keep your throat smooth and lubricated. There are times when singers would keep coughing to clear their throat to sing better. Thats not a good way of clearing your throat. Its better if you take a sip of water or just let the saliva pass down your throat.
