  • Start With Sounds

This song can be really trickish when trying to imitate and hit all the notes. So you will start with singing to the song with only tunes.

In Practice:

  • Pick sounds like ‘ooh’, ‘eh’ or ‘Woah.
  • It will make it a lot easier to hit all the notes.
  • It will get your subconscious accustomed to the notes to hit, how high and how low.

To top it off:

It’s not compulsory to use the sounds I mentioned above, you can use whatever sound you feel comfortable with. Just make sure it’s a sound that will go well with your imitation.

  • Hold Your Vowels

This is a process where you hold the last vowel in a word and drag it out.

You know:

When you start singing, you’ll notice some high notes in the song that you wouldn’t be able to easily attain.

Here’s a hack for beginning singers;

  • Keep your vowels open for as long as possible.
  • Pay attention to the last word in each word.
  • It is a lot easier to hop on any pitch with a vowel sound.

Try this now with “Let It Go”, emphasis on the ‘O’ at the end of it, and keep it open till the end. Get familiar with your vowels and use them well.

  • Only Use Your Support Muscles

Using your abdominal muscles to produce melodic sound.

Hear this:

It has been proven by many experienced singers that using your support muscles would help to bring out a different sound that will be able to hit different notes. 

  • Tongue Placement 

This is about the way you place your tongue while producing sounds. It might sound really irrelevant but it is very essential in hitting high and low pitches.

Let’s get to it: 

  • Make sure the back of your tongue is slightly lifted up when hitting a high pitch. 
  • Ensure the tongue is low when hitting a low pitch

Without your tongue, you can’t make a sound or even sing your favourite song. The right tongue placement would go a long way in helping you hit different notes. 

  • Record And Review

After all these voice training tips to sing Let It Go perfectly, it’s only right that you record your progress. 

In Practice:

  • Get a Let It Go Instrumental.
  • Get recording equipment (don’t need to break the bank for this).
  • Now SING.

This is very necessary to know where you have gotten. This is like a journey to a destination, you have to be aware after some time if you are making considerable progress and if you’re still on track.

In Conclusion

Think of your voice as a muscle. You know, if you don’t work it out, it won’t get stronger and smoother. 

But:

Ensure you don’t push your voice the extra mile just to get perfection. Perfection takes a lot of practice. You will get there! Might just take a little bit of time but it will be worth it.
