Thread Name: how do you prepare to sing?
Subject: RE: how do you prepare to sing?
Prepare? ;-)

Actually I have found that my singing has improved a great deal since I started exercising regularly about four years ago. Good breathing puts less stress on the throat.

As for preparing.... I drink lots of water and try not to sing on a full stomach. Sometimes at banquet gigs that's not possible, they want to feed you first.

My little trick is, singing easy songs early in the gig and saving the more challenging ones for later.
