Click the  PLAY button above to Watch the Lesson!

One of the most important things that you will need to know as a serious singer is singing from your/my diaphragm. You probably see this being said all around the internet when people mention how to sing.
You may wonder what exactly is your diaphragm? How in the world are you supposed to sing from it if you don’t even know what it is in the first place? Well today’s blog post is about helping you out with this now!

What and Where is it?

This is a sheet of muscle underneath your lungs which helps you regulate your breathing to make sure you get the most out of each breath.Now that out know where and what it is...

How to Locate Your/My Diaphragm Exercise

You can actually locate your diaphragm by laying flat on the floor and taking a book. Then placing it on your stomach. Breathe in as much air as you can while you’re laying on the ground. At the same time while you’re breathing in air you’re going to be pushing the book up as high as you can with your abdominal/stomach muscles. The muscle you’re actually using at this time is your diaphragm and this should help you become more aware of it.
Now try singing. The muscle you feel moving in your stomach is your/my  diaphragm right there!:-]

How to Start Using it to Support Your Breathing when You Sing

Place your hand on your stomach and at the same time expand your stomach out by breathing in air to fill up your stomach. So you will be breathing in and expanding your stomach outwards at the same time. Once you have in enough air go ahead and breathe out while pulling your stomach in at the same time.

How to Strengthen Your Diaphragm

Basically you are going to stand up straight and then practice panting like a dog. (See Video above!)
While you are panting like a dog  practice sing a  simple  song like  “Mary had a Little Lamb” or  “Old McDonald had a Farm” this  will  help make your  diaphragm stronger when you sing. Practice this  at least 5 minutes or more several times a week until you are singing from your diaphragm naturally. This may take some time so be patient.

I hope this helped you out today:-] You now know where your diaphragm is, how to use it and how to strengthen it.

Top 5 Foods Not To Eat Before you Sing - Real Singing/Voice/Vocal Lessons

Stay Away from  These Food Items Before You Sing!

Dairy products - These have a way of leaving behind a  residue around and on your vocal cords.This can prevent you from singing  clearly and with elasticity.

Alcohol - This will naturally dehydrate every part of your body including any moisture  around your  vocal cords. Your vocals need this moisture to  be at their  best when you sing. So avoid this  before you perform.

Citrus  Fruits (yes this includes  Oranges) -These are  tasty but have a way of naturally  drying out  your  throat where your  vocal cords are located. So just  don't eat them before you sing.

Fizzy Drinks (like coca cola or sprite) - These can also be seen as a pretty  darn tasty but they  tend to  deposit  air in your stomach and  lead to burping when you  sing afterwards. So  do yourself a favor and  don't consume this until after you are  done with your performance if you really want it.

Junk Food - Last but certainly not least!  This will sap your energy  faster than  just about anything! Real singing takes a lot energy to  produce and you will burn out  quick if you are only  eating junk food to fuel you  day in and day out.  Good  foods like  apples, fish (not  fried),and brown rice will give you energy to run on for  a while.

I hope you found this helpful:-]

Good luck, Marvin Lee

How to Get Good Tone Singing starting TODAY!?

Good tone singing is important when performing or working towards a singing career.  This is true whether you’re a male or female.  But, what is good tone singing?

Good tone singing is highly dependent on the size of ones throat.  A larger throat allows for better reverberation and a stronger, vibration within the vocal cords.  Overall, good tone singing is made up mainly of 1) tone intensity, 2) a smooth, even vibrato, and 3) ability to produce strong high and low notes-depending on your voice type.

Let’s break it down this way:
Low formant is for resonance
High formant is for ring
Vibrato-a pulsating change of pitch, used to add expression.  A smooth vibrato adds a richness to the tone which is usually more enjoyable for the listener and easier on the voice of the singer
Head voice or upper register is where high notes are correctly sung.  The resonance is normally felt in the lip area or cheekbones (with the head voice register, judgment is normally based on quality of purity in the voice)
When a singer displays each of these abilities then it’s considered proper voice placement.

Acquiring this ability of proper voice placement or good tone singing, is through correct voice training, which includes a few basic steps.
1. Relaxing when you sing is very important.  If you tense up when singing, it will cause weak resonance and tone in your voice.  It’s also important not to strain when trying to hit a note out of your range.  Straining will not help you to hit the note, you must remain relaxed.
2. Breathing- another key factor to good singing should be done correctly.  Eighty-percent of our singing voice is made up of air, therefore labeling the voice equivalent to a wind instrument.  Correct breathing is done from the diaphragm.   Watch the breathing of a baby, noting the rising and falling of his stomach when breathing-this is the proper way.  It is done without your shoulders moving and your chest will have very minimal movement.  Practice the method by stabilizing your shoulders and concentrating on your stomach moving in and out.
3. Warm-up.  Just as with any form of exercise, when working with your voice, you should warm up by humming prior to singing.

4. Study your role model.  Pay attention to how they sing, what style singing they have, the type of people they perform for.  Trying to incorporate this into your singing will be a helpful learning tool.  But do not try to copy your role model, incorporate your own signature singing style.
5. Create your own style by trying different variations of music, or discovering your own way to add a “touch of you” to a song.  This is important in setting yourself apart as an individual.
6. Get a job.  After you’ve worked on the techniques, put yourself out there in the public.  Sing at your hometown church, or community chorus, try getting a singing job at a restaurant or night club.  This is great practice for you and will help you become acclimated to singing for a crowd, as well as get you acquainted with the public.
7. Keep track of your progress.  It’s a good idea to record yourself singing so you can hear your own progress.  Do this once a month so you can detect your areas of weakness and strength.
8. Taking care of your voice is crucial if you want to move forward on this goal.  Do not scream or yell.  Make sure to drink at least 64 fluid ounces of water each day to keep your vocal chords properly hydrated.  Avoid dairy products because they produce mucous which will make it hard to keep your throat clear and affect your voice quality.  Do not smoke or spend a lot of time around people who smoke, as the chemicals can wreak havoc on your vocal chords
9. Find a coach.  Taking a few voice lessons from a professional is very helpful in your endeavor.  If you cannot afford to hire a professional, there’s some great software available to teach yourself.  This is crucial because if you do not implement the proper techniques, it can harm your voice.

And remember to keep singing for the love of it!

7 Real Everyday Tips on Singing RIGHT NOW!

If you are just beginning to sing, there are a few things that I’ve found very helpful, when learned at the start of your new endeavor.  The tips seem pretty basic but these along with voice lessons will be a great foundation for helping you to achieve your singing goal.  In addition to the following information one thing that is of utmost importance is that YOU need to do is believe that you truly are good singer.  Remember to believe in yourself, always.  Who knows, you may even become better than some professionals.

If you follow these steps when initially acclimating yourself to singing, you will form good habits.  

1) Properly hydrate your body-Learn to drink clear liquids before you begin singing, preferably water. When you sing you use your vocal chords, so you can not sing without drinking something first or you may risk harming them. The fluids provide proper hydration for your vocal chords much like oiling a machine prior to using it.
2) Get proper rest-While you sing the muscles in your throat need to be loose. If you don’t get the right amount of sleep, your whole body feels tired and tensed.  If you have not gotten proper rest, it’s better to avoid singing.
3) Wear comfortable clothes-When choosing your outfit, it’s advised that you wear clothes that aren’t’ too tight or bind. This will ensure proper breathing. Breathing is 70% of singing.
4) Put on flat heeled shoes that provide good support-When singing it’s important that you stand in the way that will provide the best possible breathing posture.  Flat sole shoes will help give you the needed support and balance for this.

5) Practice good posture-When you sing, good posture plays a very important role to proper breathing.  The breathing techniques required to ensure that you sing your best requires deep breaths that fully engage the diaphragm.  Poor posture prevents proper breathing. With shoulders relaxed and chest sticking out, you’ll be standing perfectly straight; having a good posture will help you sing to your greatest potential.
6) Stand upright with feet no more than shoulder width apart will allow you to control your body movements more when you sing.
7) Keep your legs relaxed.  Do not lock your legs, this places extra strain on your feet which isn’t good.  Body weight should be evenly distributed not completely on your feet.

These are just a few tips that I find helpful.  However, each singing teacher will give you some of their own advice too. You need to listen carefully because it will help you to become a more talented singer.
