How To Eliminate The Nasal Sound When Singing

That nasal twang may represent a fine country western song but it doesn't work for everyone, so singing teacher Sonia Jones demonstrates some techniques to eliminate sounding nasal as you sing your favorite ballad or pop song.

How to eliminate the nasal sound when singing: The most important thing is not to sing through your nose. The holes in your nose are too small so the sound is too thin and it gives that "Aaaahhhh" and I don't like it. So, any good singing teacher will tell you not to sing through your nose.

So, try using the placements instead, so it's "Aaaahhhh" which are the cheeks and you've got all this space and then a nicer sound comes out, because the mouth has got a much bigger hole then the nose. So, it's "Aaaahhhh" instead of "Aaaahhhh." A lot of students, when they come to me, do sing through their noses, and it's because they think it sounds poppy, and that's how the Americans sing, and they're trying to copy, and, which, where in fact, if you think of the American and Canadian accents, they talk from there, the roof of their mouth, not through their nose, so sometimes my pupils do get confused and I get rid of the nasal sound immediately.

And this is a mental thing and I get my pupils to go look in the mirror and put their finger in their mouth and go, "Aaaahhhh," so they're singing from the roof of the mouth instead of "Aaaahhh," which is quite a horrible sound. And that's how to eliminate the nasal sound when singing. .
