Learn to control your breathing

One of the first skills learned in a vocal lesson is how to control your breathing. Learn how to support the air properly. Experienced artists have control over the exhalation of air and they don’t allow themselves to use the throat at all in order to maintain the quality of sound.

Avoid singing from the throat and keep in mind that it should just be used as a passageway for the air. A vocal coach will work on ways for you to avoid going into the throat while you’re singing. This is an area most students work on when they’re learning how to sing which improves your performance dramatically.

A singer controls their voice by learning how to breathe properly. A vocal coach will teach you how to control the diaphragm and other muscles in the body that are involved in inhaling and exhaling the air your body takes in. A lot of people end up shouting rather than controlling the muscles in their body to keep the air from coming out to quickly.

  • Songwriter Tip:

    If you or your band is at the stage of sending demos out to labels, producers, et al, you don’t need protection, but this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have it. At the very least, always use the ‘poor man’s copyright’ method. Use government registration if you can afford it, as it is still the best. Even though the risk is incredibly minimal, perhaps one of the person’s you’re sending your package out to has changed jobs and has been replaced by someone who is new in the business and is not quite honest. There is also the incredibly small, yet existing, chance that your CD will get mixed up with someone else’s and that they’ll get signed on the strength of your songs and think nothing of making them their own. As I said, although the risk is extremely low, it’s still worth spending a bit on protecting your work.
