How Vocal Warm Up Exercises Can Begin To Reduce Stage Fright

When comes to learning how to be a good singer, vocal warm up exercises are one of the most important things to consider. Vocal warm-ups help not only warm up and wake up the voice, they also help protect the voice from strain and from damage. Vocal warm-up exercises are something that should be done every morning and certainly every day before you sing anything more strenuous. Warm-up exercises should always be done first before vocal strengthening exercises.

Vocal strengthening exercises will help expand your range and help you to sing higher notes but you first need to do your vocal warm up exercises so that your voice is protected, warmed up and ready to sing. Also you should do your vocal warm-ups and your vocal strengthening exercises every single day. I know this seems like a lot, but if you are serious about singing you absolutely must do vocal exercises every single day.

I also want to give you some stage fright tips so that you can go on to stage with far less anxiety and stress. One of the greatest things that you can do to avoid stage fright is to be prepared for your performance. How are you preparing for your performance?

The best way to prepare for performances is to make sure that you are ready to sing the song that you’re going to sing and that your voice has been strengthened over the past several weeks.

Also make sure you know all the lyrics to your song and that you can hit all of the notes in that particular song. Also many people find it helpful to visit the venue before the day of the performance. This gives them a mental picture of what to expect when they get there and releases them from the fear of unknowing.

The next thing I want to talk about is singing techniques like making sure to sing from your diaphragm. Singing from your diaphragm has mostly to do with how you hold your body. What I mean by this is that if you have proper posture and your shoulders are relaxed down by your side, then you will more likely have a chance to sing from your diaphragm. Also you want to make sure to take complete breaths and not to take short breaths, as you would when you are speaking. This is called chest breathing and it’s something that you want to avoid in your singing because breathing for singing and breathing for speaking are very different.

When you speak you take short breaths and allow the chest to collapse as you’re speaking. But when you are singing you want to make sure that your chest stays high and you take full and complete breaths. This is what it means to sing from the diaphragm and to implement correct singing techniques.
