Vocal Health — Can’t Get Enough Of It!

From breathing exercises to lip trills, singers share the vocal health tips that have been most effective for them.

After chatting with some singers we like on Instagram about vocal health, here’s what they shared about their routines and revelations that reinforce great vocal health habits!

All about that breath support

KikiEva @kikievamusic — My vocal technique is something I only really started learning in the last few years, so for me right now it’s about reversing a lot of unhealthy techniques that I’ve been doing for years. One thing which has been a game changer is training myself to have good breath support, because that allows you to sing with more strength and less tension. An exercise which has helped me with that is literally lying on the floor and breathing with a book on my stomach and then lying on my front and breathing with it on my back; that helps to engage the muscles of your diaphragm and also the back muscles which are really helpful for good breath support.

Practice with patience

Alyssa Soleil @alyssasoleil — Something I’ve learned about my voice throughout the years has been, honestly, the more you train it, the better it will become. Practice makes perfect, and just like anything else, it takes time! I honestly think singers, including me, need a huge amount of patience in because for some songs you just need to try and try again until you get it right- which is okay!

Check yourself before you wreck your voice!

Kaleigh Noakes @kaleighnoakesfemalevocalist27 — I have learned not to overwork my voice during performances and to know my limits! I’m quite ambitious when I want to learn new things, but there have been times when this ambition has hindered me causing me to push too hard and lose my voice. I have learned to have patience when learning new skills and not to push too much too soon.

Warm up with some lip rolls/trills!

Kayode Disu @kayodedisu— One thing I’ve learnt that has really been a game changer for me is the fact that a simple vocal warm up exercise can really be a great help to your singing career if done consistently. Many singers often look for a fast way to sing better, but a consistent vocal warm up exercise can be most efficient. For my warm up/exercise, the lip roll has always been a great help for me. I use the lip roll to run scales. I also use the lip roll, running back and forth from my head voice to my chest voice and that exercise seems to help in a lot of ways which also includes a smooth transition from head voice to chest voice and vice versa while singing. I also often run the first five notes of the diatonic scale, and I do that often with modulation and at other times changing the octave completely, that seems to help my range a lot.

Your favorite artists as references…

Ruu @ruu_melodies — Your voice is like any other muscle or body part. The more your train it, the stronger it becomes. I’ve never taken vocal classes but I hope one day I will. In the time being what works for me is that I watch my favourite artists perform and learn from them. Take Aurora as an example, she has a wide vocal range. So I sing along her songs, trying to follow her range and I keep trying and repeating her songs till I reach my goal. I also usually pick a song that has different ranges but not too hard to sing in order to warm up my voice and it’s usually this song: “Runaway” by The Corrs.
