FAQ about the role of sleep in singing

Can you really improve your singing voice?

This is a question asked so often. It is a definite YES! Everyone can improve, not just their singing voice, but their speaking voice, when proper technique is used and mastered. Does it happen overnight? No, but you will feel the difference once you start training.
It will take consistency! Consistency is not a word we use often, but it is the core belief of all successful people. Without consistency, nothing great can be achieved. If you train daily and educate yourself about the mechanics of singing, you will surely feel the improvement.
Now keep in mind, that if you are consistent and using the wrong technique, you will still cause injury to your instrument. Using a proven method, which has been implemented by many great artists, will ensure a long and healthy career in singing and even in public speaking. Join the fun, and set yourself free by singing well!

How much sleep do singers need?

When we train to be singers, we are not any different than a professional athlete. Whether singing for an hour, or 4 hours, you must ready your body as if you were going to run a marathon. Sleep is essential to ALL well being, but when it comes to singing, it can mean the difference between being prepared and soaring or crashing on stage or in the studio. We always recommend 8-10 hours of sleep in order to allow your voice to rest. Unlike any other part of our body, the voice only rests when you are silent and asleep.
Building a routine that will encourage great sleeping habits is something you must prioritize as a singer. You must make sure you eat at least 2 hours before sleeping, in order to avoid acid reflux and a serene sleep experience.
Using a humidifier and air purifier during sleep truly aid your body when sleeping. Without the proper sleep habits, you can end up using your voice while tired, creating a chain reaction that can unduly harm your voice. A tired body, equals a tired mind, which pushes a tired voice. The education of the Voice, Body, and Mind, is the core principle to succeeding when using The Voixtek Method.
You can safely practice your technique with Ron’s proven Voixtek method. Join the hundreds of professional singers on Ron’s roster as you sleep well and sing well.

Why do I sing better lying down?

This question is something we saw many people asking. Lying down aligns the spine perfectly which can aid in relaxing and keeping everything aligned. The truth is that many people find singing lying down a lot harder than standing. You must have some strong and developed intercostal muscles, opening the rib cage, and supporting your breath, in order to sing with ease while lying down.
When the body is relaxed and supported correctly is the perfect condition to sing well. For those of you who find ease in singing lying down, feel your body, become aware of what is happening to it when you laid back and then create those same conditions when you’re standing. It’s not the lying down that makes it easier, it’s the proper posture and support of breath.
