Answers to some common questions about users’ voices and songs. Today we are with Pirbod. Mr. Pirbod, the singer is here to answer your questions.
What elements should I focus on if I want to achieve a good voice while singing?
Many elements are involved in producing a healthy and good sound while singing.
One of these key elements is your breathing, which you need to consider strong and stable breathing to have a strong vocal sound.
It is best to follow basic breathing exercises to be able to control your breathing while singing and strengthen your diaphragm and abdominal muscles to further support your singing.
The second component is your vocal cords and familiarity with how to produce the right sound. A healthy combination of air and sound is vital for a strong vocal sound.
Familiarity with our vocal cords is essential for sound training and balanced song production. Another important element is the area between the vocal cords and the positioning of your voice, which includes the larynx, jaw, chin, tongue, nose, throat, and so on.
During singing, you should maintain the calmness and flexibility of these points to achieve a good sound while singing.
For example, if our throat is constricted when we reach the following notes, your voice will gradually become very thin.
Calming the throat gives us a thicker and clearer tone, but it is difficult to achieve this in the short term. You need to follow the vocal exercises and voice training tips to achieve a stronger voice and find good verbal habits while singing.
Can I develop my vocal suffering and what should I do about it?
Technically, your acoustic and intrinsic suffering cannot be developed unless your vocal cords undergo biological changes or you have surgery on them and change them directly. This is not recommended because it carries risks and is not worth it.
However, you can reach notes higher or lower than your vocal range. You can twist the expression of these notes, especially in the lower notes, you can read them more easily without pressing on the throat or other components.
You can also use your own aperture and vocal cords to better effect and achieve better vocal cords to reach notes outside of your current vocal range.
By warming up properly and doing voice exercises, you will become familiar with a good and healthy voice and you will know your proper verbal position. Sometimes you can not read certain notes because we do not have enough respiratory support to do so.
Doing advanced breathing exercises will also help you to breathe deeper and stronger and better support your voice.
According to my friends, I have a flat and uniform voice. How should I fix it?
Sometimes our voices sound flat and monotonous because we do not know how to change the sub-specific aspects of our singing voice. These aspects include the verbal position used, changes in the dynamics of the song, and changes in the step between words or notes.
Verbal position is the position from which our voice comes. In the case of singers, it is in the form of a chest sound, a middle or nasal sound, and a secret voice. These terms are used to describe sounds that we can use while singing and to indicate the physical location of these sounds.
For example, if we want to read the following notes, we can use the secret sound station, which is quite loud and it seems as if the sound is coming out of the head area.
By changing the verbal position, we can diversify and color our voice and create a good listening experience for the audience.
Do whispering exercises to find the position of the sound at the bottom, middle and top while singing.
Dynamics refers to the loudness or softness of our voice, and by changing the volume of our voice we can add more variety to the sound. This is done simultaneously with the melody of the song, sing louder in the upper step of the melody and softer in the lower notes of the song. You can use dynamic and special accents while singing. For example, increase the emphasis on some words.
The third element to improve the flat and uniform singing is to add subtle variation in the step between words or notes.
This is done with a short pause between steps. For example, instead of suddenly switching between two notes from one note to two, we pause a little.
Practicing musical steps to warm up and train your voice will help you become familiar with the steps as you sing.
I have noticed that my voice accidentally scratches during singing. How do I fix it?
One of the reasons for hoarseness is the lack of control over the vocal cords and their detachment during singing (which is quite painful, isn’t it?)
This may be due to the intolerance of the diaphragm air pressure on the vocal cords or the general weakness of the muscles that control the vocal cords.
One way to improve this problem is to practice lip-shaking or bubble-training to better resist air pressure and reduce the possibility of the sound being scratched while singing.
Another way is to get acquainted with the difficult steps while singing. For example, if we know that we are scratching on certain words or notes, we should move the words in the sentence or practice scratching reading.
When you are able to do this, you can spell the words in the song, but by whispering or moving, you have to remember to read that word.
Motion has nothing to do with the notes we read. Although certain movements or notes require more effort to read, we must use them in practice sessions.
I do not think I can sing revolving notes or free sections along the music screen or other free sections of the song. Whenever I want to read the limited steps of a piece, suddenly my voice goes from one stage to another. How can I have a softer voice?
We need to work on our ability to read without pause, which we mentioned in the third question. We need to be able to read more and more fluently without having a smooth, uniform sound.
The inability to read without pause means that the reading phase changes abruptly and the vocal cords are pulled at once while they should be pulled naturally and slowly.
Do a few singing exercises to have a softer voice when singing. The 5-ton scale (Dohe, Rey, Mi, Fa, Sol sings in order) prevents skipping steps in the practice of singing and teaches you to fluently change from one step to another.
