It's not a good idea to use the type of sprays that numb the throat or drink syrup type liquors. You need to remain sensitive to the irritation to know if you're causing damage.
"Belting": Forcing your voice to extend the chest register higher than it should be by singing loud. (You are vulnerable to vocal damage by doing this.)
Scorpio (Oct 22-Nov. 21)
Each muscle, when isolated, has a simple function. However, activated simultaneously, they begin to work against each other.Control is lost to a battle of tensions once you can no longer separate one muscle's job from another's.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Usually singers smoke a little pot to get loose and uninhibited. I think there is a better way to deal with your nerves than placing such a burden on the larynx...
Capicorn (Dec. 22- Jan 21)
There's nothing more powerful than your opinion of yourself. In the end that statement makes or breaks every singer.
Aquarius (Jan. 22-Feb. 21)
With an "oo" vowel, vocalize a continuous sound, starting in a middle range and sliding down gradually to your lowest note. This will sound like an old siren winding down or a bomb dropping.
Pisces (Feb.22-Mar 21)
Any sport you can think of that combines quick blasts of energy with stretching, jumping, bending and balance becomes a good cross trainer for singers. They build your endurance and lung capacity and sharpen your reflexes which are all pluses.
