When I begin voice lessons with a new student, I have a lovely conversation with them about their vocal goals. Right there at the top of the list usually is, “How can I sing with a richer, fuller tone.” So I wanted to share some ways with you today, that you can sing with a richer, fuller tone just by playing with sounds.
Since I’m not there with you, you’re going to rely heavily on the way your voice feels to you. Singing should never hurt. It should be quite the opposite, effortless and easy. Take what resonates with you, and leave the rest for now. It’s all about embodying what feels best to you.
Exercise 1 - How to sing with a richer fuller tone
One of the best ways to sing with a richer, fuller sound is to create space on the inside. I would like for you to start with the headspace – specifically the nose. Using a humming sound, send all your vibrations to the nose space. Nothing needs to move on the inside to isolate this space. So if you feel any pinching at the throat, tongue or jaw. Relax and send a few sighs into that space.
Getting ready to hummm
Now that you have a sense of what that feels like. Inhale into the nose, feel the coolness of the air rushing in. Imagine that it is expanding as it rushes through the nose cavity. You can also feel as if you are gently stretching the nose space with a nice yawn upward. Try your humming sound again. Notice how much fuller it was?
Now keeping that space open and available for the vibrations, hum upward; then introduce some mouth space. The idea is to maintain the balance of the feeling that you just felt while introducing the mouth as a resonator. You’ll want to keep your airflow feeling smooth and consistent. Really focus on the feeling of a yawn. Too much air pressure too soon, only causes tension.
Practice this feeling as often as you can. This will build familiarity with your body, and give your body a chance to accept it as a new habit.
Concentrate on your throat
Now concentrate on the throat, right where the tongue, jaw, and throat all meet. Feel the coolness of the inhale gently flowing. It should feel neutral. Now, create a small gentle yawn. Feel all that air flowing in? (You shouldn’t hear anything. If you do, you are relying on the chest muscles to pull the air in.) Jut relax, and concentrate on the throat. Let’s do 5 nice yawning inhales together. Now, as you exhale release a nice open ah sound. Notice how your throat stays open as you create the sound. Do this a couple of times to register exactly how it feels. It should be a gentle feeling of opening. It shouldn’t feel like your using your throat muscles to pull the throat too open. That creates lots of tension.
Focus on your nose
Now let’s put the nose space, and the throat space together to balance a fuller tone. Start at the top, hum to feel the space inside the nose. Then gradually open the mouth and throat as you descend in pitch. Balance is key here! You want to feel subtle changes being made as you create the sound. A little goes a very long way. The goal is to maintain balance as we introduce small changes to the resonating system. So work to keep the sound connected to natural speech. We do not want to use pressure or tension to manufacture fullness.
Where there is space, there is breath. Where there is breath, there is fullness.
Adding a sigh sound
It’s also important to sigh in a descending pitch pattern. This will get the body associating a sense of relief as it releases the sound from the body. So feel that sense of openness, and release. Get the body used to those two distinct feelings.
It doesn’t take long to achieve amazing results from this simple idea. But it DOES take awareness and practice. Once you reach for the feeling of gentle space, you will instantly experience the results that take place.
