I have two things I use the radio and keyboards. The radio gives you different styles of singing so if you sing with them you will gain practice and experience. Playing the keyboard you can practice on matching pitches. If you don't own one there are tons of free ones online.

How to recover your singing voice after being sick?

in

I've been sick about two weeks now and it was just last sunday i've got better. I had a real bad cold and most the time i was coughing (i still do now and then). For some strange reason I can still sing perfectly normal but when it comes to doing high notes/ high pitches my voice will either disappear or fade out on me and sometimes it may not. What can i do to help my voice and why is my voice doing this? Thxs!

Answer: 
That your high notes are a hit-or-miss suggests that you've not fully recovered from your cold. Warm-up your voice by singing scales and arpeggios throughout your vocal range. Continue to drink plenty of fluids to keep yourself well-hydrated.

How to keep a good breathing technique when nervous about a performance?

in

I'm about to perform a song in front of a lot of people soon, the problem is that when I get nervous I lose all proper breathing technique and can't push my voice from my diaphragm, making it sound a lot worse. How can I stop this?

Answer: 
Psych yourself up. Confidence helps combat stress hormones! Watch a football team before they run on to the field. They get in a group and pray or sing a team song to pump themselves up with confidence and team spirit. You can do this whether you're performing alone or as part of a group. Have parents, family members, and friends give you a pep talk. Keep a journal as you practice; then if you think "I can't do this," you can check the notebook to see how well prepared you are. Be prepared. You're less likely to freeze up if you're well prepared. Rehearse as much as you can and practice in front of others at every opportunity. Most of all, think positively: Tell yourself "I'll be OK" or "I can do this" even if you are not 100% sure of it. Look after yourself. Before big performances it's easy to let taking care of yourself slip as you spend too much time on rehearsals and practice. You'll look and feel your best if you get enough sleep and eat healthy meals before your performance. Exercise can also help you feel good, and along with sleep and nutrition, is an excellent way of keeping those stress hormones from getting out of control.

How to sing confidently around other people?

in

I have to sing in a choir, but i just can't let out my voice in front of other people even in front of my friends. I try to, but it's like something is stopping me from doing so. I've sang around people before though, it's just sometimes i get really nervous and shy and start feeling so hot and don't. I don't want people to get mad at me for not singing. So how can i sing confidently around people?

Answer: 
The nerves have got you! I had very bad nerves myself when I first began to sing publicly. It will be helpful for you to come out of your shell more singing with a group of people - even if you feel nervous and hot, just work through it and don't stop singing. Gradually, the nerves will cease with time and practice. Sing for people as often as you can, even if you feel like your stomach is in knots - as long as you keep working through it, you will show yourself there's no good reason to be too nervous to sing. Don't be afraid to let people hear you! I'm sure nobody will be mad at you for not singing if you don't want to, but they will encourage you to keep singing because i am sure you are a lovely singer!

How to sing 5 octaves for alto vocal range?

in

I have alto vocal range. Well, I can sing mezzo and soprano, too but my voice is actual alto.
I want to sing higher in my powerful alto voice, I hate singing higher using soprano voice, as they sounds unnatural.
I aim like Charice. I know Charice is alto-mezzo, she is absolutely not soprano. Am I right?
So, please help. Thanks.

Answer: 
There seems to be some confusion about vocal types going on here. Part of classifying a voice is the range in which you can sing, but another big part is at which piece of the scale the voice is most suited. If you can sing a mezzo-soprano range but are not very comfortable or good in the soprano range, you are most likely just an alto (or possibly a mezzo that needs training.) You mentioned that Charice is an alto-mezzo, "alto-mezzo" is not a voice type. If you would like to increase your range in alto, as that is where you prefer to sing, there are many practice scales you can find on youtube that will help you warm-up and prepare your voice. Be patient, these things take time. Also, I would not be expecting that you can sing 5 octaves.

Answer: 
The only SAFE way to improve PROPERLY is to take face-to-face lessons with a fully-trained vocal teacher! Please do NOT rely on any dodgy web tutorials because that way you can misunderstand things VERY EASILY and develop bad habits, hoarseness, vocal nodules and other nasties IN NO TIME. It is always much wiser to invest a little bit of your money/time to face-to-face lessons rather than wasting the same amount of money (or even more!) to frequent ear-nose-throat specialist visits due to aforementioned problems. If you can't afford vocal lessons, then joining a choir is the only SAFE alternative option. Always remember to warm up your voice properly, but please know your limits and don't overdo your voice! Remember the diaphragmatic support, do not strain your throat too much! Also, remember good body posture! Avoid fizzy drinks (burp danger), dairy products (mucus risk), caffeinated products (coffee & tea included, they dry up your throat) and spicy food (irritation risk)! You can consume these things, but NEVER before singing! Do NOT shout, yell, scream nor otherwise abuse your voice AT ANY TIME! Also, please respect your vocal range; if your teacher says you are, say, an alto, then you ARE an alto. Do NOT try to imitate anyone famous, that will usually give you just bad habits and even damage your throat. You are YOU and your voice is unique, so please learn to cherish that. Do NOT sing, whisper, shout, yell nor scream if having a sore throat/cold/flu, Also, do speak as little as you can if you have flu/cold/sore throat! Remember to drink at least 2 litres of room-temperature still water every day, not just during singing days! Avoid inhaling secondhand smoke!

How to become a really good singer?

in

I've never really sung before. I mean, I have around the house when nobody is in but that's about it. I always see these amazing singers on BGT and X factor and get really inspired. But is there anyway that I could become a good singer? I wouldn't say that i have a really bad voice, but I wouldn't say that it's good either. Is there any way that I could go from not singing at all, to being a good singer?

Answer: 
The term 'good' can vary. In my opinion, if you can sing in key, sing in different ranges and have a unique and distinct voice, then you're good. Take vocal lessons if you want, I took them but quit because they're controlling and I prefer to sing in my own way. Hope I helped =)

How to sing similar to adam levine of maroon 5?

you shouldn't try to sing like other people. It damages your voice. If you are doing covers, you are supposed to sound like yourself, not the original singer.
