So I’ve been practicing singing for about 4 months now about 4 hr a week doing 30min sessions when I have time. I’ve started recording myself over the past month to see what I sound like in recordings. I sound fairly decent but I feel like I’m still missing a clear voice a little and that I’m somewhat flat and lifeless on some recordings.
So what I wanted to ask is how to practice/what a good routine is. I plan on practicing 1hr a day soon. My current routine is 5-min warm-up exercises like scales, humming, and lip roles. Then I practice singing songs that I like that have clear vocals. I’ve been focusing on 5 different songs and been taking them apart trying to learn each.
I’ve search online but I’m still unclear what actual vocalists and even established artist do for practice. I'm 20 now I started in Dec, I have been wanting to practice now regularly for about 2 years just from thinking my voice is somewhat decent and I really love music and I want to create some amazing music.
I’ve also been practicing guitar a little after I sing. I’m not totally sure how musically gifted I am but I played sax in elementary school for about 5 years and never grasped musical concepts since I seemed to be more concerned with just playing what sounded cool to me and ignored all that stuff.
My plan is to keep practicing and then post to youtube/soundcloud when I feel my voice is at an adequate level and start writing some of my own music.
The songs I have been practicing are: I’ll be, Reason, Everlong, If you could only see, Drive
If requested I'll make some non-phone voice memo recordings to share.
