7 Efficient Tips on How to Train Your Voice
Updated: Apr 15, 2020
So you know you would love to improve your voice,
But you’ve never followed a lesson, tried any exercises and basically don’t know how to train your voice.
So what can you do?
Well, it’s easier than you think...
Here are 7 tips on how to train your voice and actually see results quickly:
1. Set your mind up for success to train your voice
Everything starts with a thought - your mind is really powerful. What we think can shape our reality. If you don’t like the sound of your voice, you are not using the power of your mind. Start telling yourself: “My voice sounds great!” and start imagining feeling amazing when you are singing or speaking.
2. Be your own biggest fan
It seems to be socially acceptable to say things like “I really cannot sing” or “I hate my voice on recording”, but it shouldn’t be. You are the only one who can change the way you think about your voice and ultimately the sound of it. Start imagining how you love your voice and how people love listening to you. This will make it easier when you start to train your voice.
3. Set your voice up for success
Cold muscles cannot work well - your voice works mainly through the help of muscles. So make sure your voice is warmed up, before you do anything with it. Check out vocal warm ups that are actually fun to do like this one.
4. Make things easy when starting to train your voice
Find easy songs to sing, songs you love that are not too high or complicated.
5. Make a commitment
Record yourself today and make a commitment to training your voice physically and mentally for the next 30 days and then record yourself again. You will be amazed at how far you can come in this amount of time when you are really committed to improving your voice.
6. Find a voice training routine
Find a place and time where you can practice and have everything ready for you. Make sure you feel confident to practice in that place - that you don’t feel you need to hold back for the sake of your neighbours or family. Practice time should be a possibility for you to try out your voice, without restraint.
7. Celebrate your wins
When we want to improve something we stay in this mindset of “improving” and we never arrive. Acknowledge when you have come one step further. Celebrate every milestone that you reach.
