The Resonant Voice: Unlocking Your Full Potential

Resonance is one of the most important concepts in singing. It refers to the amplification and enhancement of sound waves in the body's cavities, such as the chest, throat, mouth and nose. Using resonance effectively can help singers and public speakers produce a powerful, full-bodied tone with less effort.

Here are some of my top tips on how to improve resonance in singing:

Relax: Before you start singing, take a few deep breaths and relax your body. Tension in your neck, jaw, or tongue can interfere with your resonance.

Find your resonant spaces: Experiment with different vowel sounds and notice where you feel the most vibration in your body. This may be in your chest, throat, mouth or nose, depending on the vowel and the pitch.

Support your sound: Use your breath support to create a steady stream of air that can vibrate your resonant spaces. This will help you produce a full, rich tone.

Adjust your resonance: Depending on the style of music you're singing and the effect you want to create, you may need to adjust your resonance. For example, singing with a bright, forward resonance can be ideal for pop and rock music, while a darker, more mellow resonance may be better suited for classical or jazz.

Practice, practice, practice: Resonance is a skill that takes time and practice to develop. Keep experimenting with different vowel sounds, pitch ranges, and styles of music to find what works best for your voice.

By using resonance effectively, you can produce a more powerful, expressive and dynamic singing voice.

With practice and guidance, anyone can learn to use resonance to improve their singing. If you'd like to know more, why not contact me for a one to one lesson?
