6 Tips to a Better Voice

An asian kareoke bar, perfect for practicing.

I enjoy playing guitar on occasion but I had a terrible singing voice. Not being able to play and sing made my practicing a little half hearted, not that I wanted to perform or anything, but I just wanted to be able to do both. Then I accidentally came across some help that can improve your voice. It really worked wonders, well, for my standards anyway. But, it’s worth a try, so if you are not tone deaf and enjoy singing take a look. Here is the advice I found:

1.  Feel your throat muscles and jaw when you are

speaking.  Note the tenseness.

2.  Open mouth wide.  Yawn and say “Ho Hum.” Close your

lips.  As you do, drop your jaw and waggle it from

side to side.

3.  Repeat the yawning and humming.  Note how the

throat muscles loosen &  Removes strain.

4.  Open mouth wide, drop your jaw, exaggerate your

lip and jaw movements.  Say the following words slowly:

Prolong the sounds.  Annunciate carefully.  HANG, HARM,

LANE, MAIN, LONE, LOOM.

5.  Lightly massage your throat muscles with your

fingers to check for tightness.

6.  Drop your jaw and relax the throat.  Prolong the

sounds. Open wide and use a monotone voice.  Say: NAH,

HAY, NEE, NO, NOO.

Who can resist, it's so much fun.
Who can resist, it’s so much fun.

And here is something to try to improve your speaking voice. You can do this a few times a day.

1 – Tummy Bounce

Take a  breath through the mouth for three seconds, and

immediately let it out as you say 10 “Ha’s” in

succession, using one breath.  Keep the back of your

throat open.

2 – Ka-Ga-Ha

Open mouth wide and open back of your throat.

Say “ka-ka-ka-ka-ka-” As many times as you can with one

breath.

Again Say; “Ga-ga-ga-ga-ga-ga”  –  As many times as you

can with one breath.

Again With; “ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha”  – As many times as you

can with one breath.

Now With “ka-ga-ha”,  “ka-ga-ha”,  “ka-ga-ha”,

“ka-ga-ha” – As many times as you can with one breath.

3 –Vitalic Breath

1-Inhale a few short quick breaths through the nose

2-Open mouth, expel quickly with one blast.

2 or 3 times only, or you will get dizzy.
