how to hold a mic

Whether you’re performing on stage, recording in a studio, or singing karaoke with friends, using a microphone can enhance your performance and help you connect with your audience. However, singing with a mic can be intimidating if you’re not familiar with the proper techniques. In this article, we’ll provide you with seven tips for singing with a mic to help you feel confident and sound your best.

1. Hold the Mic Properly:

One of the most important things to remember when singing with a mic is to hold it properly. Hold the mic with a relaxed grip, and keep it close to your mouth, but not too close that it blocks your mouth or causes distortion.

2. Control Your Breathing:

When you’re singing with a mic, it’s important to control your breathing. Take deep breaths before singing to ensure that you have enough air to sustain long notes. Remember to breathe through your diaphragm and not just your chest to avoid sounding breathy or running out of breath.

3. Mind Your Distance:

The distance between the mic and your mouth can impact how your voice sounds. To avoid distortion or muffling, keep the mic about a fist’s distance away from your mouth. As you move away from the mic, your voice will become quieter, so adjust your distance as necessary.

4. Adjust the Mic Settings:

Every microphone has its unique settings, such as gain and EQ. Adjust the settings on the mic to suit your voice and the environment you’re in. This will help to ensure that your voice sounds clear and balanced. 

This will not be one of your concerns at GT Entertaiments functions. The DJ’s have preset the mic to be perfect and will adjust the sound board to what best suite the song and your voice. 

5. Work with a Sound Engineer:

If you’re performing in a professional setting, consider working with a sound engineer. They can help you find the perfect mic placement, adjust the levels, and make any necessary changes to ensure that your voice sounds great.

Fortunately for you, GT Entertainment are well trained to engineer the sound perfectly for you. The soundboards are of the highest quality ensuring you the perfection you want. 

6. Move with the Mic:

As you perform, consider moving with the mic to add some dynamics to your performance. However, be careful not to move too much and cause any audio issues. 

The difference  between a singer and a performer is a performer moves physically to express the music. Just be careful to move the mic with you and not forget the importance of that. If you’re having fun, your audience can have fun too, always remember that. 


7. Practice Makes Perfect:
