One of the most challenging things to resolve when it comes to singing is not the actual vocal issues themselves, but rather how to find time to practice singing.
There is always so much to do! Especially if you’re a busy person, trying to make time for work, exercise, spending time with your friends and family, eating properly, and on top of everything, learning to sing!
But the good news is that you don’t have to spend hours a day to develop your voice. Of course, if you are able to dedicate more time to it, that would be great. But you don’t need to spend hours and hours on practice and repetitions to build a strong instrument.
In fact, that would be quite harmful to your voice. You can develop your sound much more effectively and quickly if you learn to do deliberate practice, rather than repetitions that are not only less effective, but could also damage your voice.
When we sing, our instrument is our whole body. If you learn to read it and understand how it works, you will save yourself hours and hours of practice, not to mention saving yourself lots of vocal problems in the future.
Building body awareness is a must if you’re serious about learning to sing. No matter if your goals are singing for a crowd or just singing in the shower!
The first stage when learning to sing is not so much getting super high notes or powerful belting but instead teaching your body how NOT to block your sound and instead allow it to flow freely.
You learn that, little by little, you can create new habits with as little as 5 minutes a day.
With a little bit of creativity, you can start your practice and amaze yourself (and others) at how much you can improve when you dedicate a short amount of time every day. In singing as well as in many other instruments and disciplines, consistent and frequent practice is more important than how long you practice for.
There are good reasons why people choose this time to sing. The acoustics of the bathroom helps you hear yourself better, resulting in an improved pitch and tone, as well as being able to sing with less strain. Also, the humidity and heat from a hot shower will provide an excellent and healthy environment for your voice to grow. It will also relax you (we all know how relaxing hot showers are), which will naturally help your breathing and, in consequence, your voice. If you take a shower in the morning, it is a good idea to sing along with an easy warm-up audio track. This will get your voice ready to go for the day!
Practicing singing in your car is a little bit more complicated because, of course, you want your full attention on the road! But there are some things you can do. I don’t recommend practicing technique exercises when you’re driving because you will need to focus on the road, and technique exercises require your full attention, if you want to do them well and not hurt your voice. Some things you can do instead are singing along with the songs you are practicing. This will help you to learn the different parts of a song: the melody, the rhythm, and even the lyrics. It is also a good time to listen to different songs and choose the ones you would like to sing.
Developing your voice is not all about singing along songs or voice warm-ups. As mentioned earlier, when we sing, we are using our whole body as our instrument. You don’t need to be singing all the time to improve your instrument. While you are waiting in line for the supermarket, or anywhere else, you can practice your singing posture. For singing, as for anything we do, we need a specific posture that will help us achieve our goals more easily. If you want to sing with freedom, you want to build a posture that allows you to breathe freely and to activate your pelvic floor to get proper air support.
