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

Frame

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.
