Maintaining a Healthy Practice Schedule

Maintaining a Healthy Practice Schedule

You want to learn how to sing? There’s a lot of work that has to be done—hours upon hours of vocal exercises and practicing is coming your way, but don’t worry. There’s a way to make it all seem manageable and enjoyable. As you progress on your vocal journey, it will all be worth it when you see how far you’ve come.

How does one practice? There is not one direct method to learning how to sing. Working with a teacher will provide you with a solid foundation to track your progress, but it’s up to you to commit yourself to your craft. What does that mean? If you show up consistently, you will begin to see progress.

Practice daily. I once had a teacher who told me, “Make sure you practice on the days when you eat.” Singing is a skill that requires a lot of training, very similar to a sport or athletic activity. Your body is your instrument and by practicing daily, you are getting it in shape to perform like you want. By “working-out” your vocal folds, you are building the technique, stamina and passion that is required to be a good singer. Even just 10-15 minutes a day, could make a huge difference in your sound.

Where/When should one practice? Anywhere is a good place to practice as long as you won’t be disturbed or distracted. If you practice at the same time every day, you are more likely to develop a healthy practice routine. I recommend using a voice memo app to record your practice sessions to track your progress and see what you sound like, vocally.

Good luck and happy practicing! 
