Mobirise

It is very important to consider your posture when you sing. You use your voice as an instruments, and like all instruments, you should know how to hold them correctly. When we sing, we use our heads, throats, chest and abdomen to create our sound, so it is important that we maintain a posture that benefits these areas.
It is difficult to draw in to the bottom of your lungs if you are sitting down, so stand up.
Stand tall, with your shoulders back and let your arms dangle loosely by your side.

Breathing well will support your voice. Singing when there’s no breath left is a common way of tiring your voice. For more details about your diaphragm and breathing

To breathe properly for singing, you must breathe deep into the bottom portion of your lungs, engaging the diaphragm. This will support your voice.

Breathing Exercises 1 – Find Your Diaphragm
Place your hand over the soft part between the bottom of your rib cage (just above your tummy). Now feel your hand gently being pushed outwards as you breathe in. (Watch you don’t use your stomach muscles to help you push your tummy out, or that you are lifting your shoulders!) This is the diagphram, the muscle we use when breathing and for singing. Just to feel the difference (keeping your hand over your tummy) – now try breathing in as if you are sipping through a very large straw (imagine it to be about 2cms in diameter). Gently suck that breath in, and feel it filling the bottom of your lungs. Then feel it filling the sides and back of your lungs. You should feel your hand being gently pushed outwards. You should also feel your chest expanding. Gently exhale the air in a long and steady breath.

Pant like a dog. You will feel your diaphragm pushing against your hand each time you pant.
 

Now breathe in (again, imagine that you are breathing through a big straw) but control it over the counts of four

Take a deep breath in, then exhale gently in a SSSSSS breathe (hissing like a snake). Try to keep your exhalation as a steady and constant stream for as long as you are able.

When you start to get the urge to breathe, try and exhale just a little bit more before you have to breathe in.

Some people can manage just a few seconds, others can manage a minute or more.

Do what is right for you to begin with. Try timing yourself. Eg this week you managed 10 seconds, next week try for 11 seconds etc.

This exercise is breathing to music over 8 counts

Gently breathe in as if you are sipping the air through a big straw.

Watch you don’t hold your breath during the exercise. You should aim to continually draw air over the 8 counts, then exhale over the 8 counts.

Vocal Warm Ups

Your vocal cords/folds are made up of two bands of elastic muscle tissue, situated in your larynx (Adams Apple). They are easily damaged and therefore need warming up before use. Warm-up exercises will make sure that your voice is ready to practice and perform.
Here we’ve put together a few exercises to warm up your vocal cords and get you ready for singing. All our vocal exercises are in a high, middle or low singing range. You can find out more about your singing range below (after the warm up exercises).


Find Your Voice Range
It’s interesting to know what your voice can do, and what span of notes you can sing. Your vocal range is the span between your highest and your lowest notes that you sing. It is possible to extend this range with a good singing teacher and a lot of practice.
The main adult voice types and these are classified by the range of notes they typically can sing. Males are Tenor (higher notes), Baritone (middle notes) and Bass (lower notes) and Females are Soprano (higher notes), Mezzo- Soprano (notes) and Alto (notes) and the below video can help find your range and give you an idea of what type of voice you have.
