Practicing a healthier lifestyle:
Your personal lifestyle choices have an irreversible effect on your vocal abilities. To have the desired vocal range, prioritizing the well-being of your vocal cords is a must. Right from getting the desired amount of sleep to being deliberately conscious about consuming a healthier diet goes a long way in ensuring optimal vocal health. Severe fatigue and exhaustion can lead to debilitating effects that will further compromise the quality of your vocal cords. Although it
is not always possible to be in perfect health all the time, there are ways through which you can ensure the well-being of your vocal cords which will help you in building a stronger foundation for your vocal range. Strictly avoiding the consumption of alcohol or excessive smoking along with certain throat irritants like cold beverages and dairy products will bring in a sense of ease to your vocal cords thereby expanding your vocal range. Taking absolute care of your vocal cords especially before a performance goes a long way in averting any strain or injury to your vocals.
Invest in the right technique:
Factors such as your body posture and the right breathing techniques significantly impact your vocal range. A firm hold over your breath as well as the deftness to regulate your voice to the desired level is indeed a learned trait that comes after consistent effort over a period of time. Investing your time in developing proper techniques and methods will ease you into the process and build the right amount of flexibility that will eliminate muscle constraints and enable you to perform with ease. Starting at a lower pitch and gradually proceeding to the higher notes will bring more complexity to your voice. Singing with an open throat and building from the top will prevent your voice from getting too heavy, which will also keep your larynx rested at a lower position to avoid further strains. Employing the right manner of breathing will highly optimize your vocal range. Irrespective of what people usually believe, your diaphragm only plays the role of regulating the release of air, so that one can easily sing from the stomach. Thereby, imbibing lower abdominal breathing exercises, will involve the proper use of the diaphragm and enhance the performance of your vocal cords.
The Cause and Effect Technique:
The craft of balancing the cause and effect aspects of your singing is essentially significant in refining your vocal abilities. Your voice is the causal factor- ‘the cause’ that delivers ‘the effect’ of your vocal sound, which also includes sound control which is steadily boosted by efficient practice. Setting goals to reach the desired level of mastery over your vocals will progressively help you in regulating your own vocal cords. Investing in the right technique will eliminate the unappealing attributes of your voice and will channel a very confident outlet of vocalization that will eventually lift your confidence. There are various techniques through which you can gain mastery over your vocal cords. Modifying your vowels by altering their sounds while hitting high notes will put less pressure on your vocal cords. Substituting complex words with simpler ones will give you more scope for improvisation, thereby steadily moving towards developing a stronger hold over your vocal range.
Striking the right balance with a firm attitude along with an informed approach towards your vocal range will steadily boost your performance and you will surely witness remarkable changes in your vocal abilities. With utmost trust in the process and unwavering discipline, you will surely make great strides towards broadening your vocal range.
