Daniel Adugna singing in front of his mother

Our body is our instrument as singers. When we speak, we do not always hear ourselves the same way that others do. This is so because our skull’s internal bone conduction system is primarily how we hear ourselves. The sound leaves our mouth and enters everyone else’s ears. It is crucial for us to cultivate our self-monitoring abilities because of this. We must rely more on kinaesthetic feedback than auditory feedback (what we hear) (the sensations we feel in our body). Be mindful of how your body feels while singing. Next, I want you to record yourself singing songs and doing vocal exercises. Generally speaking, I do not advise beginning singers to do this because they have a propensity to become frustrated with themselves. I advise you to wait until you are more comfortable with your singing if you believe that hearing your voice will make you give up singing forever. However, if you’re willing, you can quickly advance by recording your singing. The secret is to immediately play back your singing after recording it. In this way, you can connect how you actually sound to the feelings and sounds you hear when singing. I constantly advise my students to take notes in class. Even taking brief notes will help you to trigger the memory because it is easy to forget what your teacher says during a lesson. You can even take it a step further and record your lessons on video or audio. Make notes on what works and what doesn’t during and after your practice sessions. Every day, track your progress. You will be astounded at how far you have come when you look back. Both the quantity and quality of your practice matter. Perfect repetitions result in perfect habits. If you practice a technique incorrectly, you will only become proficient at performing it incorrectly.
