“But I do not want to practice now.” Remember to tell your parents when they told you to practice your instrument. Boy, I did I had to practice my instrument for half an hour every day. I almost hated him. But what I did not realize was that I was doing well. In my second and third year, they always chose me to attend regional presentations throughout the city to be part of a much larger orchestra. I used to think it was good. What I did not realize, until I was an adult, was that I was not only good at that by nature, but it was because of all that practice.
Well, it’s the same with singing. If you wish to be sensible, you’ve got to apply. In fact, if you want to act well, rehearse. That is correct, rehearse.
I say this because I know that many people can sing well. We see that every night at the karaoke shows in the city. But few people know how to “interpret” their song. By presentation, I mean, put a little more into that than stand there and sing. And if you do not calculate what you want to do beforehand, it may not go as you wish.
Get your voice in shape.
I also like to practice my singing with the exercise of my body. I discovered that it sounds better when I keep my vocal cords tuned. It is very similar to body exercise. I exercise to keep my body, and I practice singing to keep my voice in shape. It seems to work the same way.
So first you have to “practice” and second you have to “rehearse.” Man, this is sounding a lot like Mom told me to come in and practice. Well, not. Now as an adult, I do not have to do anything I do not want to do. So everything comes down to what I want to do. I want to go out to karaoke night, get up to sing a song and make a fool of myself? Well, not.
Well, then I need to do whatever it takes to avoid doing silly work there. At a minimum, I need to practice something rudimentary.
Let’s be honest. The more times I practice singing a song, the more natural it will be when I sing it in front of people. The easier it is to sing without having to think about “what comes next”. We have all seen people who get up to sing who do not know the song well and who are doing enough to overcome it. it does not sound great. They stare at the monitor and stumble over the letters, trying to get closer to the melody they heard a few years ago. They are singing to the monitor. Meanwhile, we in the audience return to the discussion at the table, instead of paying close attention to their performance.
Karaoke is about having fun. And many people just enjoy getting up and doing just that. That’s great and I applaud that. Many times they can have friends in the audience who are screaming and screaming giving them support, but most of the other people are disconnecting, or at least trying to do so.
Practice can make a difference
Remember when the next singer got up, and it sounded good? Not only did they impress us with how well they sang the song, they also included the audience in their performance, captivating and entertaining them. Sometimes, when that happens, you can hear a silence about the room, since most people stop what they are doing and turn their heads to the stage to see who is singing. If you are the singer when that happens, it gives you a feeling for your spine that you will always remember.
So, how do you practice? Well, I’ve found that the easiest way to practice is in my car while driving. If you have a copy of your favorite artist’s music it in the car player and sing it. It’s a great place to practice because I can make all the mistakes I want without someone else being there to hear how bad I am and then do it again. Eventually, you can lower the volume so you can hear more of yourself than the recording. Also, if you can get a Karaoke CD that has the music without singing, then you can write the lyrics in memory while singing with the music. All CD players can play the music part of a CD + G Karaoke. Remember, the better you know the song, the more entertaining you will be in the Karaoke night.
I used to feel a little self-conscious if I thought other drivers were watching me sing to the contents of my heart, wondering what kind of fool I could be. But I also realized that most people are not paying attention to what they might do in the car, since they are only worrying about driving, daydreaming about their own world or, these days, talking about the phone Which reminds me that, if you still feel shy about it, you can open your own phone and it looks like you’re talking on the phone.
Singing in the car is an excellent way to practice the vocal part of your performance. But what about the “performance” part of your performance? You will need to stop somewhere and solve the movements. How is it at home? At a minimum, you can place the recording you have been using in the car, in your home player. Now you can find out how you want it to look. In a short time, take it to the next level and build your own karaoke system at home. Now, you can have the advantage of the letters on a screen, a microphone. in your hand, and your voice will amplify as it will be in your favorite karaoke club.
Karaoke systems nowadays have become much more affordable. You can always start with a CD + G Karaoke player that will show you the letters on the TV screen and pass it through the stereo of your home. Later, you can add some microphones, an amplifier, and some speakers. There are many karaoke shops that not only sell karaoke CDs but can also help you with the hardware.
