Singing – It’s For Everyone!
Everyone should sing, not just singers. Singing is the swimming of internal fitness. It works and benefits the entire body. Just how far you want to take your singing is up to you. Some people may be happy with a basic level of functioning, while others might want to attain Michael Phelps-level accomplishment.
I’ve gathered some of my favorite singing exercises below, and I’ve tried to stick to videos that cover the basics. If you want to take it further, then by all means, binge watch the other instructional videos on YouTube. Not all YouTube instruction is created equal. The videos I’ve included are from channels that I have benefited from. Among my favorite YouTube channels for singing are Dr. Dan’s Voice Essentials, singwisevocals, EricArceneaux, and Jeff Rolka.
And of course, do the exercises for breathing, speech, and swallowing. Singing uses the muscles that also aid in these other functions. Separating and strengthening these functions will only enhance your singing.
