For a singer, the term ‘versatility’ matters a lot. A singer has to be versatile in order to prolong his/her singing career, otherwise the world has seen many singers come and disappearing in a matter of a few months. Pitch and scale are the two important aspects of singing. If you are a single and struggling to hit the right pitch, then there has to be a problem, which you are not aware of.
People can easily determine if your pitch is not right and that could lead to a lot of embarrassment. If your voice is too flat or sharp on certain notes, then the end result wouldn’t be the same as you and the music director have expected from you. Singing in a wrong pitch is similar to listening to a band whose instruments are totally out of tune. That is neither enjoyable, nor bearable at times. But, there is nothing to worry, as there is a solution to this problem, which we will be discussing in this article. You can read the following tips carefully and implement them in your singing. I’m pretty sure that your pitch issue is going to be vanquished.
The reason for a bad pitch could be ‘yelling’ as well. Everything is normal until you are singing in the normal pitch, but as soon as you go to a higher pitch, your voice goes flat and unclear. So, don’t yell and try to sing within your limits. Yelling can affect your vocal cords.
Check how you stand while singing
Just check the way you stand while singing, as an improper posture can also affect your singing. To be able to sing at a good pitch, you need to have an adequate air flow, which you certainly can get if you are standing in a bad posture. So, try to stand straight while singing the song.
Choose right songs
A particular composition can’t be sung by every singer, which is why, music directors pay extra attention when opting for a singer. You have to ask yourself after you get an invitation to sing a song, whether you can sing it or not. If you are the lead singer in a band, then you can change the key of the song, as you don’t have much to do in that case. Playback singers have more options in terms of improving the pitch.
Play notes using a guitar or piano
It is important to identify and match all the notes in the right way. In order to do so, you need to undergo ear training. You can take a piano or a guitar, and play the notes using one of them. You have to hear the notes properly and then, sing along with the notes. If you find anything wrong, then make the necessary adjustments.
Have a control over your breath
One key aspect of singing is the proper timing of exhaling and inhaling. If you exhale too harshly, then it will affect the pitch and make your song out of tune. You have to adjust the microphone to control the airflow, which gets out of your vocal cords.
Manage your chest voice
You can also use your chest voice, which is very beneficial when you want to hit lower notes. At the same time, you will be able to hit the high notes.
Don’t roll your tongue
Singing is done with a clear throat, and you must also keep your tongue out in order to keep the passage clear. This will ensure proper vibration of the vocal cords. The position of the tongue should be in the forward direction. The tip of the tongue should touch with the teeth. You will notice a huge change in your pitch.
Be confident, always!
A beautiful song is sung with a confident voice, and not a trembling one. So, if you have a habit to get overwhelmed after seeing thousands of people screaming loud, then you need to build up your confidence. You have to practice singing in small groups on a regular basis. This will help you sing perfectly when it matters the most. Moreover, you won’t be booed by the crowd.
These are eight tips that you have to read carefully in order to improve your singing skills. Most importantly, just try to enjoy what you sing because this profession is all about being expressive.
