All the main points and steps are as follows.
The mistakes that you are making
In your singing and practice, you are making many basic mistakes which can be prevented and this prevention can give you power and strength in your singing. Not only the beginners, but most of the expert singers are also making these mistakes.
Do not push your voice:
The very first thing that you are doing and you have to stop is pushing your voice. When it comes to the power and strength of the voice, the very first thing that comes in your mind is that you have to push your voice. But it is wrong because it can cause you many serious and disastrous problems and it can take our voice away from you.
When you are pushing your voice from your throat or your chest, it means that you are forcing your voice to get out of the place which is not capable of producing it yet. The proper way is to build that voice and take that out. Now, how to do that? I will show in this article.
Don’t put muscle tension:
The next reason for the strain on your chest and your choice is because of the muscle stress and tension you are putting on your muscles like jaw, lips, tongue, abdomen, face, and throat. It can cause the voice blowout and stress on your vocal cords.
All you need to do is to make sure that you are putting any tension on your muscle and you are moving them freely. But, how you are putting the tension on the muscles? When you are trying to disturb the flow of air through your voice box, when you are not getting the airflow through your throat and when you are trying to sing the high notes without even thinking anything.
Do not worry, this is avoidable. All you need to do is to learn how much air is required for your voice box to produce some powerful voice.
The main rule is that it doesn’t require too much air but when you are singing some notes, that require more flow of air than usual. Stop thinking that more air will cause you more power. If you are allowing too much air to pass, it can cause muscle tension and voice strain.
The techniques you should use
Now coming to the important part of singing. There are many techniques that you can use to sing the bring out the best and loudest voice in yourself. This is a skill and skill can be polished with the help of hard work. The following are some major techniques that you have to use:
Bring the ‘MIX’ voice:
Have you ever heard about the mixed voice? Have you ever feel that there is a third voice that you are generating and it is helping you a lot? Having a mixed voice is the best thing to develop and it is the easiest thing in singing if it is done in the right way.
So, I am going to show you the best way through which you can generate the voice of your own choice. Once you learn how to mix your voice, you will be able to feel that you can sing the highest note with ease and efficiency.
The mixed voice includes the head voice and chest voice. Generally, every singer pushes his chest voice to generate power and it causes serious problems. All you need to do is to mix your head voice and chest voice by finding the right balance and saving your vocal to break apart.
When you listen to the phrase of head voice, it means that your voice is resonating and vibrating in your head region. When you hear your chest voice, you can feel that your chest is vibrating when you put your hand on your chest.
Mic voice is a type of voice in which some of your voice vibrates and resonates in your other parts like mouth etc.
Think reverse and sing reverse:
How would you be feeling if I show you that your thinking and your mind can help you generate extra power in your singing? Yes, you can use your thinking in such a way that you can have as much power as you want.
Singing is a whole process and a job that requires your mind, body, and soul to fill it with everything it needs. Reverse thinking is the technique that is the newest technique and most of the singers do not even know about this.
Let me tell you how this technique works. When you re singing a high note, that is going and up. You also hear that the note is going up. All you need to do is to think and sing that note down.
In the same case, if you are singing any note that is going down and you are hearing that it is going down. You have to do the reverse of it and sing that note in the high note. It is the mental exercise and allows you to make your mind for every note.
This is the human nature that you always do something better when you are doing it opposite. This will also help you to keep your voice box stable and it keeps exercising with this technique. Your mind helps you to prevent the strain on your chest when you are going up in your lower notes.
It will allow you to bring all the notes into your voice range and your voice box will be relaxed.
Choosing the best position:
The next technique is related to the correct and best mouth position. Yes, you can also generate the power of your choice with the help of your mouth shape. All you have to do is to shape your mouth like a megaphone by keeping your tongue in a correct position and bringing your soft palate in an upward direction.
When you are keeping the shape of your mouth like a megaphone position, it will allow your throat to be opened at the back. In this way, there will be a continuous and proper flow of air into your voice box and it will produce the sound and volume of your choice.
It will allow your oval cavity to work in a fine condition. You are required to keep your lips relaxed and make sure that the shape of your mouth is oval.
It will keep your jaws, mouth, tongue and inner ears relaxed. If your lips and throat will not be relaxed, the sound you will be producing will be tensed and tight.
You will feel good when you are handling your cavity and mouth perfectly. After that, you can also practice with all the vowels and give them proper space in your mouth. So, they will be expressed in a better way.
The exercises that you are required to do
Now coming to the most important part of how to sing with power. So far, you came to know all the mistakes that you are doing and techniques that are related to singing with power.
The last step is some exercises and workouts with your voice, that will help you to train your throat and voice box. The following are some exercises that you have to do in your singing session:
The AHHH exercise:
This is the first exercise and all you need to do is to start practicing with the AHHH sound on a simple scale. Yes, it is a difficult sound but it will be very beneficial for you as you will find it easier when you will be practicing with any other sound. It will help you to keep your voice box in a relaxed state and flow of air easy as I have discussed before.
After that, you can go to the EHHH sound. It is easier than AHHH sound and you will be doing it very quickly. Just keep in your mind that you have to sing high the low notes and sing low the high notes while practicing this. You will be able to note that this exercise will keep adding power to your voice and singing gradually.
As I have discussed above the technique for the mixed voice. The easiest and the best way to do that is by rolling your lips into a position. In this exercise, you will be using your lips to bring your voice in an upward direction while using your vocal bands and register.
Vocal cord exercise:
These are your vocal cords that are producing the sound. There is two type of vocal cords that vary from person to person. One is the think vocal cord that does not tend to vibrate much and produce the sound.
The other one is the thin vocal cord which has the tendency to vibrate faster and produce more sound. But, there is not any way through which you can change the thickness of your vocal cords. All you need to do is some stretching exercises that will help your vocal cords to vibrate and produce more sound.
You have to stretch your vocal cords with the help of singing and speaking. The best way to stretch your vocal cords is with the help of the air you are breathing and the same air is being used to produce the sound. You have to choose the perfect balance of the air for the amount and type of sound you want to make.
If you want to take in less air, you have to balance it with some exercises. It follows the very simple rule that the more you can control the amount of air you are taking in, the more your vocal cords are vibrating and the more you will be able to produce the powerful voice.
