The Top 3 Areas Of Vocal Improvement

Share This Page

While I’ve been a student of the voice and singing for most of my life, as well as a professional singer, I have spent the past year immersed in figuring out how to rapidly improve someone’s singing voice, even if they weren’t necessarily born with much ‘natural’ talent.

I believe strongly that singing is something that can be learned by anyone with the right techniques and exercises.

So, I’ve identified what I think are the key elements of what it takes to really improve your voice, and I’ve created a step-by-step, 8-week method that is guaranteed to take any singer to a new level of singing ability.

I have developed 8 specific areas that I think every singer should focus on and improve in, but I want to give you what I consider to be the top 3.

1. Agility

This one sometimes takes people by surprise, because they either don’t know what exactly it is or necessarily how to apply it to singing.  Agility is the ability to move quickly and effortlessly from one note to the next, landing on the right notes without having to slide up or down to nail the note.  This is most often heard with vocal trills and runs but also has its place in developing a free and beautiful vibrato.

2. Mix Voice

Developing a strong mix voice is one of most important pursuits of any serious singer as it relates to both eliminating cracks and breaks in the voice as well as being able to sing high notes with power and without strain. The mix (or ‘mixed’ or ‘blended’) voice is the blend between your two primary registers, your chest voice and your head voice.

Instead of straining on the higher notes, a strong mix voice will help you to effortlessly nail these notes, and with greater power.

3. Resonance

This is the area that will separate you from the thin, timid sounding voice to a full, powerful sound voice.

Resonance is a quality of sound that is fuller and louder because of the reverberation inside the various resonators inside your chest, throat and sinus cavity.

Most people think that fullness and volume come from pushing harder, but the truth is that you can have a very powerful voice, with little effort when you are properly using the resonators built into your frame.

Hopefully you learned something here and have found this helpful.

I welcome your comments and questions. I always respond to them, personally.

I would love to hear in the comments below about what you most want to learn and why, and maybe what you most struggle with.

Godspeed to you!

Aaron

      I have a course called superior singing method that goes in depth with all of that. I talk a lot about the mix voice. You can find it at superiorsingingmethod.com. Best of luck to you with your singing voice!

    Hey there Aaron. What are your thoughts on harsher styles of singing such as ‘screaming’ or ‘aggressive’ vocals? Many of my favourite bands are able to produce a sound whether it be screaming or singing or somewhat of a combination that seems like it is produced at the peak of their vocal power and range, although a similar sound is able to be used for lower pitches as well. Do you know how this is achieved?
    Thanks very much
    Jeremy

      Jeremy, that’s not really my strong point. I can help you to have the best voice that you can possibly have, but this screamy type of vocals seem to damage your voice a little bit no matter how good your technique is.

    Hi! Your website is really good and also your YouTube Channel has a lot of excellent videos.
    I would like to have a better singing voice because I love to sing even though I really can’t, I sound annoying and high, and my voice cracks.
    Please help me out here, do you have any good tips on how to get my voice to sound any deeper or less nasal and overall better? And to sound any lower?

    Hey Aaron! You have an awesome website and YouTube account! Keep up the good work!
    I’m 14 and before watching your videos, I had a really high pitched and, frankly, highly annoying voice. After watching the video on how to breathe from your diaphragm, I did it and it did not sound so good, but after a little while of practicing and trying to make it sound how I’d like, IT SOUNDS PRETTY AWESOME but I still want to improve it, and make it have less cracks. In my own humble opinion, I’m still not a good singer, so what are your tips on how to make my voice sound deeper and fuller, and if I do that at a younger age (like now) will it help me when I’m older?
    Thank you in advance! :)

    Hi,

    My name is Benjamin and i am from Africa(Nigeria), anytime i try to sing,i loose my voice,it like a kind of breakdown,if i am on a note or key,it suddenly goes down and comes up again…even when i talk,it like when you are listening to a music with base…please what do i do?


    • Aaron Anastasi

      Benjamin, it sounds like you may be pushing or forcing your voice a little bit too much. Singing should be a lot like speaking, just sustained speech. Without hearing you speak I’m not sure exactly what is going on with your speaking voice. Is it possible that it’s puberty or are you too old for that?

    Hey Aaron,

    First of all, I just ordered your course, sound very helpful. I prefer it above other similar courses because of the fact that I can identify myself more with you as a singer. Also, you have got some badass tattoos man! Like them alot! Are the ones on your forearms the only ones you’ve got? Got three myself on my forearms, and a full sleeve is coming on my skin next month! :-)
    My question for you is, do you include in your course some lessons about reaching notes that you just can’t reach at this moment, and how to hit them properly? I can say I am a decent singer, but I would like to learn how to use my voice better with better breathing techniques and stop my voice from being hoarse after a gig or practice. Do you cover these subjects in your course? Can’t wait till the payment is done, you my man are a hero! ;-)

      Hey Leroy! Welcome to the course!

      Yeah the tattoos on my arms are pretty much all that I have, except for one on my back. :)

      Yeah, the course goes into those very things, and is, in fact, the main thrust of the entire course. Best of luck to you, my friend!

    Hi ! I think I have enough ‘amount’ of voice but sometimes when I try to reach higher notes I get tired…tell me the solution please


    • Aaron Anastasi

      You are probably forcing your voice too much to hit those high notes, which is causing strain. The best way I can help you is with my program. You can find it here, if you’re interested in checking it out. http://www.superiorsingingmethod.com
