Updated on January 20, 2012

Why You Need A Good Singing Voice

Good music starts with a good voice, and a good voice begins with proper voice training. Remember, your voice is unique to you and you alone, and as a singer, your voice is your most treasured asset. Don’t ever make the mistake of trying to emulate others. Yes, your voice might be similar to that of a famous singer, but do you really think the audience wants a counterfeit of what they already know? No way! They want something new and unique, and not something common. Remember, the music industry is a dynamic industry where taste varies with time. So to fit in, you will need to develop that unique voice inside you waiting to be explored.

The best way to develop your voice is to work on it continually from time to time, till it becomes perfect. Don’t expect this to happen in a twinkle of an eye, you must exercise patience while training your voice. When training your voice, it is better to start practicing in one area until you have mastered it, and then you move on to another level. How do I mean? Read on…

Key Steps In Voice Training

Food: food is a strong determinant of a singer’s voice performance; therefore, you must be preferential in your choice of food if you truly want to have a good singing voice that would make you stand out as a singer. While there are foods and drinks that harm a singer’s throat, there are also foods that helps nourish the throat for good voice performance. For example, candy or licorice tea is a good drink that helps refine voice. Also, drinking good quantity of lukewarm water daily helps to train the throat for good vocal voice performance. Almonds, fish, yellow vegetables, apples, eggs, and rice are also good food diets that helps nourish the vocal cord for excellent voice production.

Salt water, baking soda gargles, sugar lozenges, hard candies, and honey also help to soothe the throat prior to a music or voice performance. On your own, try to take notice of the foods or drinks you take that usually help your voice before a music performance.

Warning: stay away from cold water or chilled drinks if you truly want to maintain an excellent singing voice.

Voice Power: another vital step to take when training voice for an excellent singing performance, is to improve the voice power. Your voice power as a singer ought to be energetic enough to offer a pleasant sound. It should not be tensed, nervous, weak or chaos. This aspect of voice training will require you to devote time to study about voice, how to breathe when singing, confidence, and how to overcome public anxiety when singing.

Voice Accents: if you want to become a great singer, then you must train your voice accents for excellent singing performance. Remember, your voice should not be difficult for the audience or listener to follow up. Learning to speak clearly will not only make your audience to feel you, but also helps your singing voice to be clearer and adorable as well. In order to achieve this, you must continually practice the art of pronunciation, and then try and expand your vocabulary. You need to also learn to accentuate your voice on demand, so that you can set the mood while singing.

Finally, you must master the art of controlling your voice and not letting your voice controlling you.

      Thank you for sharing these tips. As a singer, you really have to invest on anything that fortifies your voice. I especially like the idea of being known as you instead of emulating somebody else's voice. As a singer, you have to achieve and establish your own singing identity.

      Voted up for this interested singing hub. :D
