I Hate My Singing Voice Help Felicia Ricci
Today's tutorial answers the question, â€œWhat do I do if I hate my voiceéâ€� And I know a lot of you have been there because I've read your comments, because I've read your emails, your tweets, where you say, quot;Fel, I listen to myself sing, either as I'm singing or on a recording, and I just hate it. I love to sing but I feel like I suck, what do I doé How do I get over thatéâ€�
Really quick intro: Nice to meet you, my name is Felicia. You can call me Fel I'm a professional quot;Voice Finderquot; I make singing tips tutorials, I make online courses, and it's my job to help you find your voice. Uhm, so many singers really get in their own way.
Through mental blocks, through not knowing how to focus their practice. And it's just my job to show you that singing is really, really simple. The first bit of advice I have for you if you absolutely hate the sound of your voice is for you to realize that you absolutely have the power to shape your tone.
Singing tone a lot of it is inherited, righté We all have vocal folds that are of a certain thickness we all have the most natural way of creating sound or of speaking so there is so much this genetic that we inherit. But in terms of vocal technique, there is so much that you can do, to shape the way you sound. I like to describe all of this as sort of vocal chameleons or that we have so many different colors in our color palette
and you can really determine whether or not you know you wanna mix white (sound) with red (sound), to create pink (sound). You have different, basically, your voice is so much more versatile than I think a lot of singers realize. So the first step is to feel empowered to know that, â€œOkay, my voice might sound this way today but that doesn't mean it's gonna sound that way tomorrow. Or, several weeks down the line if I know how to direct my practice.â€�
The second bit of advice I have for you has to do a little bit with the emotion and the heart behind singing and the selflove that singing requires. I like to draw an analogy between working on your singing with working on your body or exercising to achieve health, strength or to lose weight. Now both of them are sort of frost sometimes with some negative emotions or it can be really tricky pursuits
