Why every Singer Should Record

Recording your voice on a smartphone is one of the most powerful steps you can take towards vocal development. Without any fancy audio know-how, you can harness one of the most powerful rehearsal tools of all time: hearing yourself.

“Wait! No! I hate hearing myself!” comes the resounding cry of many singers, especially those who are not used to hearing a recording of their voice. There is an acoustical reason for that shock and horror you experience when listening to a recording of yourself.

“What we hear in our head when we sing is much different than when it’s played back from a speaker. And so, getting comfortable with what your voice sounds like – no matter what kind of singing you are doing – is a great way of deciding what you think about your voice and what you want to change about your voice. So, record on your smartphone.”

–Kevin Alexander
