How To Make A Weak
Singing Voice Powerful

My biggest problem with singing is simply that my voice is not strong enough to sing.

It's not loud and it breaks so much that I can't hold a note for more than a second.

From The Editor

Thank you Kristina for sharing your biggest singing challenge.

Ok, so it sounds like you are in the same position as many singers when they are just beginning... or singers who have been singing for a while but are yet to find their voice.

The challenges you are talking about are very normal for a voice that is yet to sing with correct technique.

They are the very same issues I had when I first begun to sing!

So the first thing to realize is this is the beginning of your journey. And that at the other side, a rich, powerful voice awaits you!

It's important to realize that singing is just a skill. And skills can be learned.

A big myth is that singing is a "talent" that can't be developed in the un-talented.

You will actually find that once you begin learning the skill of singing, you're improvement will be very noticeable in fast time.

Now, while you'll be excited at fast improvements in the beginning, singing is a long term thing. You will continue to develop over a period of years. Even the very best still have improvement ahead of them.

So how do you begin this journey effectively?

Well, as I said it's about learning to sing with correct vocal technique.

Correct vocal technique will give you power, a large vocal range, and your best vocal tone quality.

To build a foundation of correct vocal technique you must practice the right vocal exercises.

Simply singing a song through a few times a day will only embed the incorrect technique you are currently using.

So you must practice singing exercises that will embed correct technique within your voice.

There are certain exercises that will help your voice make this shift automatically.

When you practice them, the nature of the exercises actually force your voice to fall into correct technique.

As this happens your job is to notice how it "feels" to sing with correct technique.

Then slowly but surely you will adopt this new way of singing in your actual performances.

Some great exercises are available on this very website in the video section. You can watch the videos and sing along...

... And begin to notice the changes in your voice as you sing more correctly.

With constant practice, persistence, and patience you will soon develop a voice to be proud of!

voice cracking and loudness.
by: Israel Edwin Koroma

Hi!. My voice is cracky, whenever I hit high notes. And sounds dull whenever I sing. Although I may sound loud, in my ears. To others it's the opposite.

From a weak voice to a strong voice
by: Anonymous

Hi. I have always been interested in voices. I've always loved to sing and listen to other people sing. But, unfortunately I don't have a strong voice. I can't sing dark tunes, for example. And when I sing, I can't sing loud. My voice is too weak. I just wondered, how hard do you have to practice - if it's possible, to get a stronger voice only in a month?
Please answer me as quick as you can. Thank you.

Thank you very much for the advice. I truly believe that singing is a skill and although some people do have a natural talent for singing, like everything else there is always room for improvement by regular vocal exercise.

I'm so offended by this. "Singing is not a talent". "Singing is not a skill." You're kidding right? Yes you can improve your singing but if you don't have the tiniest bit of talent, you'll sound like a tone deaf monkey.
