Developing A Powerful Singing Voice

In order to get a big and powerful singing voice, the singer needs to incorporate many singing techniques together.

Now to open up further for bigger singing sound, the singer has to open the area near the base of the tongue. This can be down by imagining the beginning of a yawn. This imaging opens up the singing pathway, keeps the tongue in the correct position and lifts the soft palate making your mouth shaped like a megaphone. A megaphone produces a bigger sound doesn’t it?

With this mouth structure, the back of the throat will naturally open up making the critical link between the vocal tone colors of the upper and lower resonances possible. While you are singing, the inner structure of your mouth is constantly working, moving to fine tune the oral cavity until the feel and sound of any sustained note just right.

The correct position of the mouth should thus be a slight oval like the picture above, with the corners of the mouth drawn in and the jaw down. It is critical that your lips are relaxed. If your lips are not relaxed, tension will accumulate around the jaw and your mouth making your singing tone sounding tight and tensed.

When your singing mouth is in this position, the jaw, tongue and the palate will not be so rigid and will be responding to the direction of the inner ear. As you gain more experience, you will be sensitive to the feeling of the mouth cavity subtly adjusting to each vowel as it fits into the available space in your mouth.

All this amazing mechanism takes place just because of your imaging of the beginning of a yawn. However of you generate a full yawn, then the voice box will be lowered too much and that creates a new obstruction in your singing pathway rather than freeing up your voice so that you can have a big singing voice.

Another source singing pathway blockage is your tongue. Just make sure that your tongue is relaxed and sits comfortably against the back of your bottom teeth. If your tongue pulls back, the airflow will be obstructed and will divide the mouth and throat into 2 resonators. On the other hand, it the tongue lift up too high, the mouth will be separated into two resonator, front and back.

Therefore the optimal mouth position when sustaining tone on a vowel for the big singing voice is a flat forward relaxed tongue position just behind the lower teeth oval mouth position and the imaging of the beginning of a yawn. What follow naturally from here will be a bigger and a more powerful singing voice. To get that big powerful singing voice, regular vocal exercises are crucial.

Learn Good Singing Breath Control

Good breathing technique is crucial for voice control when singing and every self respecting singer should learn and master this technique. Singers will never be able to sing powerfully, sustain a tone gracefully and sing with passion without mastering good breath control technique.

When you are drawing in breath for singing, breathe from the bottom of your lungs upwards. When good breathing technique is mastered, you will be able to feel the breath all around your lower abdomen, not just at the front. Your chest and shoulders may begin to lift as you draw in your breath but do not let them lift or else the singing voice will sound strained and tensed.

You will be frustrated with your singing effort if shallow breathing is your breath control foundation. Shallow breathing is air stored on your upper lungs where your throat and the upper chest meet. Correct and good breathing technique begins with the diaphragm and the breath support muscles.

The key to correct use of diaphragm and breath support muscles is the expansion of your lower abdomen when taking in your singing breath. You have to exercise and develop this technique until it comes naturally to you as a breathing habit even when you are breathing normally when not singing.

As you are practicing your singing breath control technique, do take notice of how much noise you make when you draw your breath. This is because many singers believe that a noisy breath is a deep breath which is not true.

When you breathe, take sips of air and not gulps. Silent quiet breathing should be the aim of a good breathing technique. Again, practice silent quiet breathing until the technique becomes ingrained into your natural singing habit.

Noisy breathing is usually caused by a constricted throat and is an obvious indication of shallow breathing contrary to what many singers think. If you are afraid to expand your tummy when you are taking in your singing breath for fear of looking fat, this will lead to having tension in your tummy and your diaphragm with its breath support muscles will not be working at its peak as they ought to be.

Most singers are not even aware that they are holding back all these tensions. One of the most important techniques for good singing is to relax so that you can achieve the so called ‘floating voice‘. With so much tension in the singing support system, the relaxed floating voice will be difficult, if not impossible to achieve.

This tension is probably caused by years of stomach in-chest out posture inculcated since young. Now, let’s start with a vocal exercise to learn good singing breath control.

Start with taking a few silent quiet breaths. As you draw in the air, expand your lower abdominal all around including the sides and the lower back. Make a mental note on how a quiet breath feels like.

Next, release the air steadily and singing the vowel ‘Ahhh’ as you release the air with your tummy going back to its original position.

Have you noticed that the vocal sound quality that you have just produced is steadier and has a floating tone attached to it?

It must be emphasized that the amount of air required for good singing is actually very little and so a proper amount of air attached to a note should be just adequate.

Learning and mastering this singing breath control technique will take you on your way to become a much better singer.
