Deborah’s Answer

The most important thing is to sound like yourself. Though imitation of other voices is a good way to practice, do not base your sound on imitation. Find songs that appeal to you, that you enjoy singing. Then work on that song. Try it different ways. Ultimately, you need to build strength by singing often ( every day for 15 minutes, maybe?), and then discovering what that strengthened voice can do.

Discover what is unique or different about your voice, about the way YOU approach a song, And try everything. I used to sing opera in my voice lessons to build strength and flexibility. I would never perform opera, but it sure did help me learn a lot about how to use my voice.

Finding a good teacher is helpful Don't be afraid to (after starting with a teacher who doesn't really work well with you) shop around to find the right teacher.

And have fun. It's your talent -- so explore it and enjoy it.

Suzie’s Answer

How to improve your singing voice involves many factors . My background >I have been a vocal coach and singing teacher (2 different things) for over 35 years and also singing professionally from funk bands to broadway, jazz, pop and rock. I still perform as a singer and I have taught and continue to teach students ranging from beginners to recording artists, broadway, actors etc....
The first thing.
1. Find a recommended singing teacher.
2. Things to do on your own
a. Choose a song that you feel good singing. That feels comfortable in your vocal range (you can hit the notes without straining)
b. Listen to the song (don't sing...listen) - print or write lyrics out
c. Listen again, but this time listen to a few words at a time, stop the track and try to sing what you just heard. Go through the song like this, line by line until you match all the notes in the song.
d. Now start song again and sing through the song. Stop if you make a mistake with timing or think you sang the wrong note. Now focus only on the problem section of song until you figure it out (by listening and then singing that section).
e. Continue this process until you know every note of the song.
f. Once you feel relatively good about knowing the notes, melody, phrasing of song, sing through and record yourself.
g. Listen back and hear where you need to refine.
h. Also.. if you can , learn piano or guitar!!
>This is where you can start as a singer. Practice and definitely find a vocal coaching or singing teacher to guide you. Be opened to trying different styles of music to see where you feel a good fit for your voice.

Best of luck on your musical journey!!

Hello, Jaime !

I don't know your age but it just may be age related and that is normal at a certain age. You can get a medical evaluation if you are experiencing anything more than vocal changes while you're singing. That being said, you may want to obtain private singing lessons from a place that works with children, teens and adults. There is a place in your city called Velka's Young Singers Academy. It costs $67.00 on line or $97.00 at home but you'll have to look into this further because I don't know if it's per lesson or per month, etc. The website is at https://www.youngsingersacademy.com/private-lessons.html . If there are any free singing lessons in NYC they are very few or hidden.

You can explore other private singing lessons, too as it would be impossible to give you feedback unless someone can hear you sing. Compare costs for lessons and if you are in high school, ask one of the chorus teachers or join a glee club or chorus and ask for feedback after you demonstrate your singing voice. You will be sure to receive feedback from someone who hears you, but do not worry. It just may be a temporary thing happening.

There is a certain way you need to breathe while you are singing and if you sing from your throat, you may be sounding a certain way and you can irritate your throat. Singing instruction will help you free your voice and teach you breath control and resonance. If you do not want to take lessons, that's okay, you can sing for someone and ask them what they think may be happening. Ask a few singers that you know for their feedback based on their expertise and experience. Most of all, do not worry, but do take active steps to let someone hear you and give you feedback.

I wish you all the best !

Maria’s Answer

The best way to improve your singing voice is to first find a great instructor. Belle Canto training especially, will help you sail through your vocal performances with ease. You need to understand that any formal vocal training takes 8-10 years in order to achieve perfection. Now, that doesn't mean that you can't perform, however, I would suggest to make sure your comfortable with the basics first, and of course, allow tour teacher to advise you. Open mics provide a very beneficial way to practice your technique. I hope this helps you.

Hello Jaime,

I found this class super helpful: https://www.masterclass.com/sessions/classes/elevate-your-singing-and-stage-presence

Also working with a voice teacher who can observe you and give you specific pointers on how to improve, even just periodically, would be extrememly helpful, too.

Joining a local choral could be an easy, inexpensive way to get exposure, practice and contacts.

Eric’s Answer

You can buy a keyboard, or if you like, just use your phone. And practice your chords on the piano notes and hum along to each note as you play. You can find music scores online to play along to if you're also interested in learning how to read and play music. Which I would recommend because it really helps train your ear to know if you're hitting the range of notes properly or not. And any job singing you're going to at least want to know the basics in sight reading.
