Voice training. Have you ever wondered exactly what voice training entails or if it would be helpful to you in any way? Are you worried that it would change your voice or your own artistic sound? Have you had vocal training before without the desired results? Do you find yourself limited by vocal restrictions that you just can’t seem to find your way through? Are you frustrated because you know that you could sing so much better but you just can’t reach those high notes without pain, or the low notes just seem out of reach for you? Do you have a desire to become a better singer or a more dynamic speaker, but you just aren’t sure where to start? If any of these questions fit you, then you are in the right place! Never fear! You are a better singer than you think you are, and with the right voice training, you will be singing beyond your greatest hopes.

Singing Voice Training

Singing Voice Training

 

Singing voice training? Ugh! Why do I have to work on training my voice? Believe me, I am with you on this one! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if a fabulous voice came just free and easy? Yes it would! Just like a fabulous body would be had by all if it didn’t require dedicated eating and exercise habits. Yet finding and improving your own amazing voice does require proper voice training, great posture, adequate hydration, a good diet, exercise, great vocal care, and plenty of quality sleep. With a great vocal coach who focuses on all of these aspects, you can more quickly and efficiently become the singer you know you can be. Hey, that would make it worth the extra effort, right? Definite payback for your diligence. Oh, and singing is fun, so voice training can be great for your mood and life outlook. So sing your heart out, following the path to vocal freedom laid before you by your awesome vocal coach:)

 

Speaking Voice Training

Speaking Voice Training

Speaking voice training is as important for singers as it is for speakers. Of course, many singers are also speakers, and many speakers are singers. The point being that it is as important to speak in a healthy way as it is to take care of your singing voice. It is, after all, the same voice! I train speakers much the way that I train singers, and I always work with my singers on proper speech, because singing is pretty much speaking on pitch. The goal is to diagnose the poor habits that are restricting your voice in any way, whether talking or singing. Once these are quickly discovered, we can set about removing those restrictions, letting go of bad habits, while creating new and better muscle memory. The body will naturally begin to properly support your voice. You will be releasing so much muscular tension in the neck, throat, jaw, tongue, and shoulders, that the diaphragm and body muscles will once again resume their role of supporting your free and amazing voice. Try this little exercise: take a nice belly breath and release it on a nice “ahhhh.” Pretty much that is how it should feel when you speak. Relaxed and without tension in the tongue, jaw, neck, throat, or really any part of the body. Your voice should never feel tired after a speaking engagement, social function, phone call, or any conversation. If you would like to speak with more passion, a more pleasing sound, with less effort and more impact, speaking voice training would be a great choice in finding your best, authentic voice.

 

Voice Training Techniques

Voice Training Techniques

Voice training techniques are vast. Some can set you completely free while others can lock you up in vocal prison. The second happened to me when I went to study with a renowned teacher. I was a very natural singer and been performing all of my life. I was so excited to be accepted into this teacher’s studio. However, through the techniques employed, my voice became locked into a little nasal ball, and people who loved to hear me sing panicked. Fortunately, I was able to get into another studio with the greatest in the world, and she set me free to sing in my own voice. I have been building and expanding those techniques for over 30 years and would love to help you find your own amazing voice! It is so important to research your options and choose wisely before entrusting your voice to anyone. There are many people out there teaching harmful techniques. These techniques, such as the vocal fry (please, please don’t do this one!), may give you a short boost, but it is indeed very short. Poor vocal techniques can lead to a host of problems that you want to avoid at all costs. Your voice is a precious gift, and it must be treated with care so that it can last you for a lifetime of making a joyful sound.

 

Voice Training Exercises

Voice training exercises are just that. They are exercises meant to strengthen your voice and make it better in every way. They can help expand your range, both top and bottom, giving you many more notes than you currently possess, even if you are already a rock star! You can find your best vowel and then learn to sing all of your vowels the same way your sing your best vowel. This one trick can set your voice free and you will be amazed at the beautiful sounds that begin pouring out of you – pouring out of you with the relentless passion of mighty ocean waves, or with the softness of the sweetest kiss. You see, a free voice is the freedom path to emotional, authentic, heart rending singing. It is the only way to fully express everything that you feel inside coupled with the message you long to communicate, both musically and lyrically. Yes, those pesky voice training exercises are the golden ticket to finding your own amazing voice!

Deep Voice Training

Deep Voice Training

Deep voice training is actually the most important part of finding your entire range. If you are approaching your low notes on the back of you tongue, with a depressed larynx, with tension in the jaw and tongue, or if you are stuck in head voice, trying to push your way down, you will not be able to sing your best low notes. The pathway to your low notes requires you to relax the jaw and tongue so the voice can freely find the natural path between the registers. Watch this video lesson how to find your best low notes, and you can begin to see what I am talking about. Try the exercises along with me! Come on! It will be fun!

 

Voice Training for Beginners

Voice Training for Beginners

 Voice training for beginners! Yay! Welcome to the singing community! Everything on my website applies to you as much as it does to the seasoned professional. When you begin doing the exercises, just be sure to stay within your own physical comfort zone. Never strain to go higher or lower than feels good to you. Your range and flexibility will gradually increase as your muscles let go and begin to learn a new and better way of making sound. A great tip is to turn off your ears. Try not to judge the way you sound as you let your voice go free. Just be sure that you feel no tension whatsoever and your ears will adjust to the sound. You see, we all are afraid of letting our voices go completely free because we want to “check ” the sound before we let others hear it. Essentially, we are creating tension before the note even passes our lips. So don’t listen for a while. Just feel the freedom!!
