In a previous post I was writing about how to develop a good singing voice and the factors that go into it.
What I wrote is very relevant to this section.
The main thing is you have to practice your voice in any format (live or at home studio) you can do so. It is better to perform music well in the studio if you can, as the music is easier for you to memorize.
As far as recording goes it is best done with a good mic. Ideally you should be able to get a decent recording for free.
Most decent audio recording software will do a good enough job (although sometimes it requires more time).
Your audience has to be impressed with your voice so when you try out songs on stage you should make sure you do it well.
If you sing well on stage then the audience will think that you have a good voice and they will ask you to join their band. Your singing voice will be on display so the audience can see you in a positive light.
A common mistake that I see beginners making is trying to sing in a “high register”.
Many vocal students are trying to sing the highest register and even try to play the “old fashioned” style in their performance. This leads to many people singing their songs in “standard” settings that are not a good fit for them – especially as they are getting older.
If you are singing a “low register” you should listen to the songs you are supposed to sing in – there are many high quality vocals available in this setting.
Most importantly, you need to learn how to sing properly.
I strongly encourage you to take the time (about 12 lessons) to practice. When you are ready you should have a good set of exercises to work on.
When learning how to sing properly don’t focus too much on the form of singing but instead focus on the mechanics of what you are doing so that you don’t forget to sing!
How do I improve my soloing?
Many people focus more on writing songs than learning how to solo.
It is always recommended to learn how to solo before practicing vocal exercises, but I think that one benefit of improving your soloing is that it allows you to focus on the fundamentals of your own playing and lets you focus on improving your technique.
You can’t learn how to play guitar if you suck in guitar lessons – which is what many aspiring guitarists try to
