Hello everyone! Its mareena here! I hope you have been loving my guides. Today I will be showing you how to sing! Lets get started shall we!

The “instant fix” This is a quick trick that makes you sound better instantly, so I call it the “Instant Fix.” Say A-E-I-O-U (watch your jaw movement in the mirror).

Did your jaw close on any of the vowels? Chances are your jaw closed on the “E” and the “U” – and most likely on others too, if not all of them. Take your first two fingers and pull your jaw

Down 2inch and repeat again (we’re trying to re-program muscle memory – so the more the better).

Think down for high notes When you sing a scale, try thinking of the way an elevator works,a heavy weight is attached to a pulley, as the weight pulls down the elevator goes up

To the higher floors.So, the highest floor is reached when the weight is the heaviest. Similarly, you should use the most “weight” on your highest notes.

More power without strain,This is one of those simple singing tips that’s easy to fix.All you have to do is to keep your chin pointed slightly down and your pectoral muscles slightly

Flexed.Stand in front of the good ‘ol mirror. Sing an “ah” scale up and down in one phrase (1-2-3-4-3-2-1). Press your chin slightly in (point your chin towards the floor), usually only 1 inch or so.

Don’t let your head bob up as you raise pitch keep it firmly in place. Go all the way up the scale of your voice keeping this position. Notice how the chin wants to move up as you raise

Pitch. Keep it planted. This will give you more power and control and eliminate strain. Practice it until it becomes natural!

HearFones A good vocal tone is not established by singing loudly, it’s established at medium volume. Good tone happens when vocal folds are strong enough to have a good closure but not touch.

Releasing too much air creates a “breathy” tone and releasing too little air creates a “nasal” tone.

Unless you’re really going for breathy or nasal as a stylistic choice, somewhere right in between the two is the perfect balance.

HearFones allow you to really hear yourself and work on your tone at medium volumes.

I hope this guide will help you with your singing skills and vocal skills. Thanks for watching! Be sure to comment: I'm a singer! in the comments!😇
