Successful Home Vocals Recording Studio Tips and Preparations

There are different kinds of noise at home and you have no control like neighbor’s activities and animal noise. In order to avoid this problems you must record during at noon after lunch time because this is nap moment and in the middle of the night because everyone are full asleep.
Let’s talk about vocal preparations before recording it;
1. You must have a schedule time of your recording one week later so that you can prepare your song to sing and you can take good care of your vocals.
2. At the day of your recording schedule if it is at noon you must eat heavy meals during breakfast and light food at noon because once your stomach has full of food during recording sessions there are tendency that you can not blow and push more air and you can not breathe deeply during your singing.

4. Focus and determination is very important. And during recording feeling must be express well.

How to Learn to Sing High Notes

This video is all about vocalizing the voice to attain high notes or pitch.
It's clear and simple singing video lesson. Actually it is an instrumental music for vocalization.

I hope you have wonderful time singing with the back ground music. If you just follow the vocal warm up in regular basis, your voice is easy to come out clearly.

Unlike, singing directly in a performance is dangerous to your voice. It may not give bad effects right after you sing, but in the long run you'll be facing difficulties to attain great voice.

Another tips for vocalizing, if you have skills in playing piano, you can vocalize by your own. Just play do-re-mi-fa-sol then sol-fa-mi-re-do. Play it in chromatic scale begin with C major scale, Dflat major scale, D major scale and so on.

And instead of singing the notes, you can replace it with a word like MIYAH! This word helps your mouth wide open in a right form. If you vocalize, always open your mouth in circle form. Make it sure that there is enough air you inhale in order to exhale properly.

This sample image is a scales with MIYAH lyric. Just play the notes with your piano and sing  MIYAH.

Learning is not all about spending huge money in college education, but with the help of sharing information through blogging, there is no need to pay voice coach anymore.

And if you have kids at home and willing to learn to sing, offer 30 minutes to vocalize and teach him/her how to sing and because that experience, it may develop your skills in teaching.

High notes pitch is attainable if you have dedication for yourself to vocalize and for others. If you are beginner do it slowly until it gradually fast.

A lot of recording artists really want to sing cover songs commercial songs.

The truth is that if you have original songs you're going through to your success in your career because people only want to buy a new songs and original.

Cover songs applies in gigs and concert.If you need a feasible strategy, the following below is recommended:

1.) Start to write songs with lyrics that you love.
2.) Start writing melodies to those lyrics and try to sing it with influence from your favorite music artists.
3.) Establish your own voice, this is where you will be known "for being you".
4.) Start your own YouTube channel where you can post your originally performed songs.
5.) Start to get more friends of similar ambitions and likes.
6.) Accept criticism and aim to improve more.
7.) If you asked to perform for a cover version of a specific song, it is much better to render it in your own style and voice instead of covering it exactly as the artist sound.
8.) Play live often, it will be either be in bars , wedding, and everywhere there are lots of people.
9.) Videotape your performance and upload it in YouTube.
10.)Once you starts to get attention especially your performance and your song, it is now the time to hire a good record producer.

Eight ways to become successful vocalist

Proper pronunciation

If you can project or say the right word and deliver the true meaning of the song it is the same as you sing the right note. English songs are common for every one to sing aside from that it is a universal language so; it is needed to practice English pronunciations especially through songs.

Some people have difficulties to pronouns English because their language is quite different especially in some countries of Asia. In positive sides, a singer who sings his/her native language has great loyalty to the country. But if you have a dream to be heard in the world or even in some other countries, it is needed to sing English songs and it is important to pronouns the words well.


Listen to any non commercial and commercial songs is great. And to admire singers has big helped to enhance the voice quality, through comparing your voice with your favorite singers. However, it is not good to imitate every thing because by means of imitating it is a way of hiding your true colors and your own personality as a unique performer.

As a singer it is quite transparent and obvious to have originality it is a possibility to become famous because people know you through your style of singing, the way you interpret the songs and how to deal the audiences. Your fans love you of who you are not because you are like Celine Dion or Whitney Houston.

Originality begins with your creativity. Be sure to follow the standard rules in singing like regular voice warm up and always physically and mentally fit. Then make your own style including, how your voice sounds, how you dress, how you play your instruments, how you entertain the audience. And through originality, you can find yourself comfortable and it is easy to succeed in your career.

Be professional

Time management is very important as a singer because once you are late with your appointment, your client is disappointed and he/she probably not giving a gig or show. In short be on time of your performance. You must be ahead to arrive than your audience. Taking care of the voice is part of professionalism because you can not sing if your voice is not sounds well. So, aware how much time you sleep, it must 7-8 hours, drink water of the time, eat more vegetables. Be health conscious with your voice.

Practice consistently to achieve excellent performance and you look professional with your work. The laziness attitude is your best enemy in this career. It is so simple to defeat this conflict; you must love your work and spend all your time with your work because you loved it. It is like how you love your parents, and the thing to do by expressing your love is to spend your time with them.

Say a little prayer

If you believe in God then prayer is one your priority. But those who don’t know that a talent is a gift from God; you must start to believe it. There are times that you feel rejection and it is true that you can not please every one. If you believe in God with his miracles and power he can transform people turns to love you because he can do everything.
Say thank you to God every day for all the blessings. What ever happens don’t treat it negatively. It is God’s purpose how your situations might be. Just love God and spend time with him and it is how you spend time with your work.
