3 Tips To Find Your Voice (For Singers) – Felicia Ricci

3 Tips To Find Your Voice (For Singers) – Felicia Ricci / – Take my FREE 3-video belt singing course!

This video is all about how to find a singing voice that is uniquely “yours.” It offers my top 3 tips for doing so…some of which might surprise you!

1) Pay attention to the natural variation in “color” (or resonance, or tone) when you speak in the day-to-day. Become aware of all the variations that are possible, and what kind of emotional intention or context usually prompts them.
2) Start by imitating! This one might be a bit controversial, but even the seemingly most original singers had influences that turned to inspiration, that eventually led to their creating their own sound.
3) Don’t be afraid to be weird and look silly! Get rid of those blocks of what you’re “supposed” to sound like will allow you to experiment more freely, which will unlock tones you didn’t know were possible.

As a professional voice finder, it’s my sworn duty to teach you how to find your singing voice! Learning how to improve your singing voice is all about simple, achievable steps that make SENSE to you. All of us learn how to sing on our own timeline, and certain things will click more than others. But it’s important that YOU understand your voice more than anyone else — learning how to be a good singer is, in many ways, getting to know yourself 🙂 If you feel you don’t yet know how to sing like a pro, be patient — every baby step and daily practice session helps. (And I’ll keep posting new vids to help you!)

    This was exactly what I’ve been needing. I’ve been in choir and show choir
    and I’m pleased with how I sound when singing along with some of my
    favorite songs, but as I am now finally learning an instrument I am finding
    that it is difficult to find my true, original signing voice. I can’t thank
    you enough for this video. It’s really inspiring and motivating. Thank you!

  2. I’m not trying to be rude or sexist (I love your videos) but are these
    inclusive to both genders? I mean, you are a great female vocalist teacher.
    I am a guy and I know men amd women’s vocal cords are different. Just don’t
    know. Thanks for all these vids!

  3. hey idk if you will ever see this, but I just looked at this video. I was
    hoping you could tell me a little more. I’m in girl in 8th grade with a low
    voice, and I want to try to do the musical there going to have. my dad
    keeps telling me I’m singing too high or too low of my comfort range. he
    wants me to go in-between but…I don’t know how. so I just need help on
    what exactly am I doing wrong or not doing at all. so idk were my own voice

  4. I’m 38 singing for a long time but feel like I just found my voice. My
    problem was that I was always trying to sound like an original recording of
    the song or like one of my influences. What I’ve found now is this:
    practice getting the pitch and the notes as they are written first and your
    voice will come naturally. Felicia says if you try to sound polished right
    away you are skipping important growth and she’s so right. Polishing is for
    later. Don’t be afraid to look stupid and don’t be afraid to be a beginner
    (with singing, with a new genre, with a new song, etc.). For me whenever I
    am getting carried away and feeling like I am losing my own voice and
    sound, I go back to the basics. Hit the note, slay that pitch and
    everything else will come naturally.

    Fel I honestly love your videos and I’ve learned a lot. But I also have to
    let this out: am I the only one who got aroused when she was talking
    acertive? Like get mad at me please hahaha I’m just joking but I love this
    videos, thanks so much!

  6. People say I sound like Selena Gomez and when I sing I’m literally sound
    like her real person😂so do I sound good or bad..?

  7. Hello Fel! First, thanks for these videos. They’re really helpful.
    When I’m hitting a high note from a low note , I always cough before
    hitting a high note and it’s like clearing my throat but I always hit that
    high note when I cough but when I don’t cough before hitting that note, my
    throat hurts but I still hit that high note. What do you think I would do?
    How would my voice shifts from a very low note to a very high note without
    clearing my throat or coughing? Thank you in advance if you answer my
    problem. Love this channel.

  8. the thing is, since i dont talk much, i even struggle with talking and my
    throat hurts when i talk. and after awhile i start to sound like a
    suffocating rooster! :/

  9. You mentioned and questioned “what has been holding us back?” and my
    response is I would always get told as a kid that I can’t sing and its been
    my dream to do so, so now I’m older (I’m 21 now btw) I felt like I’ve found
    my voice as a mesto-soprano but I’m not sure if its correct. I still get
    how my choir instructor while I auditioned for as a soprano for an all
    women’s choir back in high school but she said “no.” Now the more I work
    hard and try and try I believe I am a mesto-soprano again I’m unsure of my
    vocal range. and I believe that’s hold me back
