Tone

Hey there! I'm an adequate singer at best. I've been in choirs since I was little so I know how to develop a lot of the different aspects of singing, but the one thing I'm not sure how to make better is my tone.

My chest voice just doesn't sound good. Especially when I'm really belting it. I can hit pitch.. decently... but the tone itself just isn't great. I know there are ways to make it sound better, but I'm not really sure how. I don't have money nor time for voice lessons, so that's why I'm coming here .

Any suggestions? I've been around singing for all of my life and have been doing it for a long time, it's just time that I finally make it sound good!

You got me. Keys... I can do those... but tone... I have no idea.

I'm very interested to hear what the folks have to say about this, as I often find myself having the same issue.

I know there are ways to work on this. All the time I hear my choir friends making comments like "goodness she has such bad tone" or "that guy has incredible tone!", so I know there must be a way to shape it. I can't be stuck with this silly sounding voice! haha.

I know exactly what you mean, I'd like to see if there are any suggestions on this. I feel like I have a "love it or hate it" kind of tone, I'd like to at least shape it to a "love it or 'okay with it' tone" haha

There are different ways of adjusting the timbre of your voice, depending on what changes you want to make in your tone. I found when I was starting singing that I had to try to change the resonance in the back of my throat more to adjust for my tendency to sing kind of nasally.
