Things You Will Need

Step 1

Choose a song that is not to difficult to sing and sing from your diaphragm or your midriff. Make sure that you learn all of the words or singing could become difficult. When you are singing do not mumble, instead project your words so that they can be heard clearly and accurately.

Diaphragm: Anatomy A muscular membranous partition separating the abdominal and thoracic cavities and functioning in respiration. Also called midriff.

Step 2

Stand up straight, you could sit up straight but standing is recommended when you are singing. If your body is stretched out you may be able to move the sound of singing more efficiently from your diaphragm, instead of allowing the sound to come from your throat.

Step 3

Do not scream from your throat when you are singing. If you want to scream while you sing then scream with your diaphragm. If you have a sore throat, try some lemon juice to help the soreness of your throat go away.

Step 4

Learn to control the piece of skin at the back of your throat called the larynx. Once you learn to open up your larynx and allow for maximum air flow your singing abilities will improve. Also you will not strain your voice if you properly learn how to control your larynx.

Step 5

Avoid puking when possible. If you throw up often it could ruin your vocal cords thus preventing your from singing well. Throwing up may also change the position of your larynx when you are trying to sing.

Step 6

Do not sing higher or lower than your natural octave. It should sound more natural if you are singing in your natural octave. Do not push yourself while singing this may cause a soar throat. Sing using the speech level singing tactic. This will train your voice to release tension which will allow room for better sound.

Step 7

If you are still unsure of how you sound when you sing, then record yourself. Play the recording back, so that you can evaluate how you sound. You may want to recruit a good friend to listen as well, to avoid having only a biased opinion.

Step 8

Each day do some sort of breathing exercise, be sure to breathe from your diaphragm. Drink plenty of water on a routine basis.
