Almost everybody loves to sing. Although many people take singing lessons to improve their voice, you can develop your own style and confidence on your own, too. Start by getting in regular singing practice each day.

1. Use microphone to record your voice

Launch a sound recording app on your computer or smart phone. Then, adjust the settings, so that it records a pure, unaltered version of your voice. Practice singing to various songs and recording the outcome

2. Sing a familiar Song Over and Over again

Print out the lyrics of a song that you enjoy. Spend some time getting to know the nuances of the lyrics. Then, work on the details of how you can change your voice inflections to transform the song itself. 

It’s important to choose a song that you somewhat enjoy because you’ll need to work on it repeatedly over time.

3. Work on maintaining proper singing posture

Stand up with your back straight and your face looking forward. Make sure that your shoulders are back and your neck isn’t overly bent. Rest your tongue lightly at the bottom of your mouth, so that it almost touches your front bottom teeth. Slide your jaw from side to side gently to keep it relaxed

  • Singing in front of the mirror with a side view can also help you to check your posture mid-song.

4. Inject emotion into every song. 

Before you practice each song, ask yourself what emotions you’d like to convey to the listener. Then, try to interweave those emotions within each song. Work on thinking of a particular event or moment in your life that evokes emotions similar to the ones that you want to express

  • The key is using that moment to capture your emotions, but not being co
    ntrolled by them. After all, the quality of your singing won’t be improved if you cry through every sad song.
5. Try to sing for at least 30 minutes each day.

This is long enough to warm up your vocal cords, but not extended enough that it could strain them. It’s best if you can use this as undistributed practice time. However, if you get a job singing this could also provide an opportunity to develop your skills in a public setting

  • Singing in public for a short period each day can teach you how to read and work with an audience as well.
