You’ve got your song picked out. You’ve got your instrument in tune. You’ve got your camera set up or your audience just behind the curtain. All that’s missing from the perfect performance is your voice.
Here’s how you can sing better instantly.
1. Open wide.
The sound of your voice flows from your mouth. It only makes sense that keeping your mouth wide open lets the sound ring out more clearly. Think of your mouth as a stage. Does a performer sound better in the basement at a house party or beneath the vaulted ceilings of a cathedral?
Demi Lovato is famous for her powerful voice. She always sings with her mouth wide open, which aids the projection of her soulful vocals.
2. Articulate your words.
No matter how incredible your vocals may sound, no one will enjoy your performance if they can’t understand a word that you’re singing. Remember when everyone thought that the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” were “lonely Starbucks lovers” instead of “long list of ex-lovers?”
Make sure that you enunciate your words when you sing. Record yourself singing the song beforehand so that you can listen for any mispronunciations.
Meghan Trainor’s articulation is always crisp and clear.
3. Adjust the song to fit your voice.
You should adjust a song to match your voice rather than straining your voice to match the song. Listeners want to hear your unique voice, not something that sounds exactly like someone else. Transpose the song to your key and change the instrumentation as needed.
You can take it one step further by playing a song in a new style. Add an electric guitar to a ballad or slow a hip-hop track into a love song. When Taylor Swift covered Vance Joy’s “Riptide,” she played it as an acoustic ballad.
No matter how great you may sing, there’s always room to grow. Follow these tips to sing better instantly.
