Many people enjoy music and feel the urge to sing when they listen to their favorite songs or play an instrument. Singing does not have to be easy and we can be discouraged when we feel that we are not doing it well and that our voice is not pleasant to our ears. Some people have a voice that allows them to sing more easily, while others may have more problems having a voice that reaches fewer tones or having a timbre with which it is more difficult to sing in karaoke. Several recommendations can help improve the singing technique. Here, we explain how to sing better at karaoke.
Before you start singing at karaoke, there are several factors to consider:
The best option is to stand up, with your shoulders relaxed, your back straight and avoiding stress. You should breathe in a relaxed way, without trying to get a lot of air and trying to manage the air properly so you don’t run out while you sing at karaoke. You must pay attention to what are those moments in a song that makes it easier to catch air. You can practice breathing exercises. Don’t sing with your mouth closed. This does not mean that you should open your mouth wide. But you should feel that when singing, your mouth is not tense, as is your tongue or throat.
For this reason, think about those songs that invite you to sing the most because they make it easier for you. Practice a song in which you feel comfortable and try to find out which parts are more difficult for you and which ones you need to improve. Another important thing is knowing how far you can go, which does not mean you cannot reach higher tones with practice. You can use a piano to repeat with the voice each note that you press as you make higher pitches. Repeat the tones and you will see in which your voice feels more comfortable. Later, you can try to reach higher tones, once you have practiced.
It is possible that from the beginning you started singing on a karaoke simply because it was the one you liked best. As we mentioned before, when a song encourages us to sing and we feel comfortable. It is because our voice feels comfortable. However, it may be that there are other genres and records that we have not tried and that involves knowing a part of our voice that we did not know. Maybe we were used to singing in very high pitches when it turns out we had a perfect voice to sing more serious songs.
One of the main problems is the lack of confidence or the nerves that arise when we are in front of people. We must get used to and build confidence in ourselves. When we have learned to sing and feel comfortable, we must take the step of singing at karaoke. The first time will be a significant effort, but as you see that you can do it, you will feel better and your confidence will increase. As a consequence, little by little you can expand your audience. Some people will find it more difficult and need more time since not everyone will have the same ease. Also, not only focus on not being nervous, but once you have accomplished this. Try to involve other things like the look and the gestures.
Singing means taking care of your voice, since if we have a beautiful voice and we know how to use it but we neglect it. Surely, we will experience more problems when singing or we will not be able to show our full potential. This means not straining our voices, not screaming, and not straining when singing. In addition, it is important that our voice rest every time we use it. So, it recovers and avoids problems with hoarseness. Drink water and avoid smoking or drinking alcohol.
You should try to establish a habit by which you can train your voice by doing exercises to sing better little by little. The practice is what will make you improve day by day until you completely dominate your voice. Practice scales, as we explained previously, reinforcing the tones that cost you the most to improve your voice. Perfecting your voice takes time and patience, but if you strive and are constant, you will see how you achieve results. Notice that your voice does not make sound loud when you sing. Do not scream or feel pain in the throat or excessive tension.
