Ways Improve Your Karaoke Singing
Are you planning a big night
singing karaoke songs at your local karaoke bar? Maybe you would like to enter
the karaoke contest? Or perhaps you already tried some karaoke, and decided your
show would be more spectacular if you could improve your singing a bit?
news! Anyone can learn to sing karaoke songs like a pro! All it takes is patience,
practice, and a few basic singing tips to bring out the karaoke star in you.
of all, you need to practice, practice, and practice some more. Remember the old
adage: "Practice makes perfect!" Sing everywhere. Sing all kinds of
songs. Nothing beats singing in the shower! You get that nice echo, and all that
moisture in the air really hydrates your vocal chords for a great sound. Turn
on the radio and sing along every time you drive anywhere. Need to clean the house
or the garage? Sing your karaoke songs while you clean. Sing while you mow the
lawn or cook dinner. You will be surprised at all the practice you can get while
doing other things. The more you practice, the more your singing will improve.
of the very best things you can do to improve your karaoke songs is to get a home
karaoke machine, and practice doing the real thing. You can work out your entire
show to perfection.
Your karaoke songs will also benefit from some professional
tips. Basically, you need to create space in your body that lets the songs just
flow out effortlessly to the world. What? How do you do that? There are 3 main
techniques. Using these techniques will make your voice sound stronger without
straining your vocal chords; they will allow you a wider range of notes; and you
won't run out of breath so quickly. They are:
1. Breathe with your diaphragm.
Fill up your lungs as much as you possibly can. Feel the space under your ribs
filling up with extra air? This is your diaphragm, and you need to expand this
to bring in enough air to sing properly. Practice freeing your voice with this
air. Breathe in to a count of four. Hold it for four counts. Let it out for eight
counts. Warm up like this. Then sing, letting your diaphragm control bringing
in the air and letting it out.
2. Let your soft palate, the fleshy part
on top of your mouth right in front of your throat, rise to open up the throat.
You can feel it if you try to stifle a yawn. This creates more space for the
sound to flow out full and melodiously. Think of yawning, then practice singing
with your throat more open.
3. This one is much easier. Keep your mouth
open when you sing.
If you feel you need personal coaching, take some
voice lessons, or join a choir.
Another way to make your karaoke songs sound
better is to record yourself singing. You can hear for yourself what you really
sound like. Then decide which areas you would like to improve. Also, you can hear
your singing by pressing a finger against one ear and closing it up while you

are to choose songs which go well with your own voice, and choose songs which
you are passionate about. When a song is close to your heart, your passion comes
through in your singing. You can make the song yours. Karaoke songs are not just
about how well you can sing, or how perfectly you can hit the notes. You can bring
the house down, and be the best show of the night by making a song totally yours.
The audience will feel your emotions and your passion, and experience it the way
Learn every word of the karaoke songs you have chosen to perform.
Be familiar with every nuance of the song. Practice some movements for the instrumental
breaks when you are not singing. In other words, practice your show, not just
the singing of the song. Because your show IS the karaoke song. Your show is what
people will remember.
