Take Care of Your Voice in 4 Ways - 30 Day Singer


Being a singer is amazing: you have an instrument that literally no one else on the planet has. And it’s also frustrating: that instrument is a part of your body, meaning it changes due to things like hydration, allergies, illness, and fatigue. I’m Camille van Niekerk, singer & teacher with 30 Day Singer, and here are 4 ways to take care of your voice.

Pop Singing Tips - 30 Day Singer

 

I'm Abram with 30 Day Singer and today we are going to go over some tips and exercises that will help you sing Pop music with better style.

Country Singing Tips - 30 Day Singer


Remember that in addition to these techniques, your best teacher is your own ear! Singing along with great country singers and imitating their tone or pronunciation is a great way to learn. We don’t want to end up with an exact imitation of another singer's voice, but rather, we want to capture the style and tone, while still sounding like you - just the country version!

Singing Posture - 30 Day Singer


Singing with good posture is not only good for easing tension, but it also helps with overall breath control and singing technique. This is the first thing that I check in with in my singing practice and I encourage singers to continually check their posture throughout the rest of their routine.

Build A Strong Vocal Range

Strong Vocal Range - 30 Day Singer

 

Are you looking for an easy-to-follow warmup to strengthen your voice? I’m Camille with 30 day singer, sharing my favorite warmups to build strength across your range. 

Let’s first engage our abdominals with a pulsing hiss, into a semi-closed exercise like a lip trill. If the lip trill doesn’t work well for you, please use a sustained VV, ZZ, BB, MM, NN or NG. The goal is to keep your low abs engaged and your ribcage lifted, all the way through the end of the exercise. Keep your upper belly soft and relaxed, though - we don’t want the solar plexus hardening or crunching inward.
