How To Sing Loud

"How to sing loud" is a common question asked by aspiring singers. A mistake that many beginner singers make is thinking that singing loud or oversinging will make them sound better. This is not true. Singing loud is harsh and non-musical. Furthermore, the sound from oversinging won’t just be unpleasant on the ears—it will be hard on your vocal cords too.

Singing loud or singing with volume?

This does not mean that your singing voice should be hard to hear. “Volume,” in music terms, is not the same as “loudness.” Having high volume and intensity is all about projecting your singing voice, while retaining your musicality. High volume and intensity can be achieved by focusing your breath on the notes and not pushing too hard. It may help to imagine yourself projecting from your diaphragm. The secret in learning how to sing louder is in breath support. Put your hand on your abdomen to make yourself aware of your breathing. Breathe way down from your diaphragm.

It is also important to learn to control the speed in which you let your breath out. For high notes you need to increase your air speed while for low notes you will need to decrease it. Each frequency requires a specific air speed to create the absolute best tone. Many singers push too much air too quickly while singing low notes in an attempt to make the note louder. All this does is add stress and tension to the tone. Use your ears to tell you when the proper balance is reached. The tone should sound clear and pure before adding stylistic nuances.

Dynamics is the art of raising and lowering the volume of your voice to add texture and expression to the sound. This is known as color. You will notice that in popular styles, singers sing louder with higher notes and softer with lower notes, with the exception of when falsetto is used.

A good exercise to help you sing louder without straining is to sing a note at it's lowest point and raise your voice slowly until it gets to its highest point. Hold it there for as long as you can before singing the note back down to its lowest point. Practicing this exercise will help you sing with increased volume and improved dynamics.
