Mistakes to avoid while singing!

Make sure to rest your voice and give it plenty of liquids, particularly water.

Some common mistakes to avoid are smiling while singing, under singing, over singing, pushing out too much air, and pushing beyond one's natural range. These are common causes of damage of the vocal folds. Be cautioned of these.

Note that if you feel any type if physical strain or especially to the extent of pain, stop practicing. This may be due to practicing these techniques in an incorrect fashion.
Seek to speak with a vocal trainer, choral director, or a specialist of the vocal folds. They will be able to show you what is being done incorrectly, and offer insight for self-improvement.

Be careful not to strain your voice!!!
