A vocalist’s main instrument is his singing voice, and just like all of the other musicians out there, a vocalist must also constantly work hard to improve his overall ability. Just because a vocalist doesn’t have to pick up an instrument like the guitar or drums doesn’t necessarily mean that he can take it easy. You need to practice almost every day in order to improve your singing voice so that you can become more comfortable with it.
It doesn’t matter whether you sing in a band or for an opera group because there are many ways which you can improve your vocal pitch while singing. Continue reading this article to find out how you can do just that.
Here are some tips that you might want to take note of if you are planning on improving your vocal pitch while singing.
Hum the Happy Birthday Song
If you have a tape recorder in hand, or any recording device for that matter, then you will want to continuously hum the Happy Birthday Song to yourself. Yeah, I know it sounds a little weird for you to be doing this, but trust me because this is for your own good. Once you have recorded the song, make sure that it is audible enough for you to hear every note that you hum. If you feel like the sound is a little lacking, then you can try recording it again.
Play the Song and Compare the Pitches
After you have recorded the song, play it back and listen to your humming and try to compare your normal speaking tone to your singing voice. Take note if your normal tone of voice is either too high or too low when compared to your singing voice. Remember that if the two pitches (singing and speaking) sound similar to one another, then your voice is already at its normal pitch.
How to Lower Your Voice’s Tone
Here are some steps on how you can lower your voice pitch:
- Keep your muscles relaxed as tightening them will only cause your tone of voice to become raised.
- Try to internally conceptualize the thought that you are projecting your voice from chest instead of your head. If you do this, you should then notice that your voice will start to have a much deeper sounding pitch than normal.
- Practice speaking (in private mind you) while placing one of your hands on your chest. Do this so that you will be able to feel your chest vibrate while you are speaking.
- Try to work as consciously as you can during conversations so that you can recall your voice’s natural pitch. Practicing while in private will effectively ingrain this sort of vocal tone into your head to the point that it will all become second nature to you.
This will sound cliché, but you should try to practice as often as you can. There is simply no other way to improve your voice except through practicing religiously. Next, read this secret to improving your voice.
