How To Improve Your Voice

There are different ways to improve your voice and here are just a few.

The first step to improve your voice is

1. Focus on your breathing – put your hand on your diaphragm (just above your stomach) and take a big breath.

Try this: take two big breaths and try to say the alphabet as many times as you can.

2. Get the right posture- your shoulders should be relaxed. Don’t tense your shoulders. Keep your feet shoulder width apart.

3. Make sure you have a round mouth when singing O’s.

Do you have any tips?

What You Need:

Around 60 different coloured buttons

PVA glue

Outline of any music note of your choice


Step 1. First put your buttons down. You can put them in any pattern but I chose to group them in colours.

Step 2.  Glue them down with PVA glue.

Step 3. Repeat step 1-2 till your note is full as shown in the picture.

step 4. Place it in the frame.

It is a good activity for rainy days, it’s easy and it’s fun. I would recommend it for ages 5 years and above.
