What is singing?

Singing is an act of producing musical tones using the human voice. And a person who sings is called a singer. A Singer performs music that can be composed with or without the musical instruments. They perform as soloists or are accompanied by a single instrument to a symphony orchestra (big band). Singing is done in a group of musicians, such as - a choir of singers or a band of instrumentalists. There are different singing styles like art music (opera and Chinese opera), Indian music and religious music styles (gospel, traditional music styles, world music, jazz, blues, gazal) and popular music styles (pop, rock, electronic dance music and film songs).
Singing can be formal, informal, systematised or extemporised. It can be done as a form of religious devotion, as a hobby, as a source of pleasure, comfort or ritual, as part of music education or as a profession. Perfection in singing requires time, dedication, instruction and most importantly practice. If you practice regularly, then the sounds can become more clear and strong. Professional singers build their careers around one specific musical genre - classical or rock. They take voice training by voice teachers throughout their careers.

Singing basics

1. Pitch - You need to be able to stay in a specific key depending on the music, and not be tone deaf. If you are tone deaf, singing can be a challenging task.
2. Breath - Diaphragmatic breathing is the key here. If you aren't 'breathing from your belly', you're doing it wrong, and you won't have proper breath support, this means you are going to be at many disadvantages, some of them being lack of sustain and a limited vocal range. You don't want to be singing too breathy either and have proper 'vocal chord closure'. Unhealthy ways of singing lead to nodules.
3. Placement and Resonance - This means you need to 'aim' the sound from your throat into the correct position within your mouth. Not way back up there in the throat, and not too frontal and nasally. Resonate perfectly by finding a balance between your nasal passages and your throat/mouth.

Singing tips

1. The voice is a muscle, and you need to treat it as one. Just like any muscle in the body, it can grow and get stronger even into your 70's when trained correctly.
2. If you have a cold, it is better that you continue to 'exercise' with proper training to maintain more consistent vocal health and lessen down time from singing.
3. The best way to reduce air is to hold your breath when you sing. The key to this is to not 'limit the throat' when holding back air. It is essential to learn open throat singing first before trying this.
4. If you have been training hard and you over sing in one night, it is best if you come back the next day and do a full workout. This will help keep the elasticity in the chords. Otherwise, it will take several days to recover.
5. While singing you lose up to 30% of your breath support while sitting when compared to standing.
6. You should not eat anything until 1 1/2 hours before a show. This will cause regurgitation.
7. You should avoid carbonated beverages before and during performances.
8. Most performers sing the hardest material in the beginnings of their sets. This is the exact opposite of what you should do. Stagger your harder material toward the end of the show when you have carefully paced yourself and have warmed up.
9. With you are in a band, practice at a lower sound volume. Mistakes will be much more evident. Don't fool yourself by thinking that cranking it up makes you better.
10. The voice has a biological clock. Hence warm it up at the same time every day.
