Successful Voice Lessons - Training Tips

Posted on

Articulation, adequate airflow, and regulated training sessions will aid in improving your voice for an upcoming vocal performance. Using a targeted voice lesson plan will adequately prepare you for a solo or group singing role.


Your voice coach may stress the importance of forming vowels and consonants, just like you would if you were stating something aloud. Although singing tends to draw out some words more than they would be drawn out when speaking, using proper pronunciation is critical in providing your audience with a clear rendition of the lyrics that you are singing.

During your voice lessons, you may start practicing some simple songs that contain basic lyrics. Once you have become accustomed to singing these tunes, your voice coach may ask you to bring in the sheet music for the song you will be singing during the live performance. They can critique you as you sing each line of the song.

Adequate Airflow

Standing up straight allows adequate airflow from your windpipe to your mouth. Good posture will allow you to sing well, plus will ensure that your stage presence is well-received. If you slouch or tend to turn your face downward, the lyrics you sing may sound muffled or distorted.

You may not be aware of how well your posture is. During formal voice lessons, you will be standing in front of your instructor. Any instances of you not standing up straight will be brought to your attention. Being instantly corrected will instill a new pattern that will reflect upon maintaining good posture. When you are practicing at home, stand in front of a mirror. By doing so, you will be conscious of your posture while you are practicing.

Regulated Training Sessions

The key to not straining your voice or feeling burnt out is to participate in regulated training sessions. Your voice coach may instruct you to practice singing scales, plus follow along to some music that they play during each instruction session. Overdoing it and practicing as much as possible could have negative impacts on your upcoming live performance.

A singer should remain well-rested and hydrated on the days leading up to when they will be performing publicly. If you notice that your voice feels hoarse or that you are having difficulty singing during a practice session, let your instructor know. They may advise you to take it easy for a while or to participate in training sessions that are shorter in length.
