Now, a smooth singing voice means that there are no obvious breaks in our vocals as we move from low to middle to high notes and back down again. By this, we mean that the tone of your singing voice sounds connected, and does not suddenly become airy or change drastically in volume as you move through your various vocal positions. We can use a simple 5 tone scale consisting of 5 basic notes (Doh, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol), sung using an Ah vowel, to train and develop our smooth singing voice.
Here is an incorrect demonstration with an obvious break in the singing voice as the singer progresses towards a higher vocal position:
Here is another incorrect demonstration with the singer straining his voice, trying to reach the higher notes in the scale:
Here is the correct demonstration with a smooth and connected singing voice with little strain as the singer progressed towards the higher notes:
It should all sound like one connected voice, and is certainly possible as shown in the demonstration above!

There are also many other pitching exercises available on this website and you can try them out to challenge yourself more!
One VERY IMPORTANT RULE for all singers to follow: If you experience pain or fatigue in our vocal cords or throat, STOP and REST immediately! Do not risk any form of vocal abuse by over-practising your singing!
One other simple tip for you to discover a smoother singing voice is just to sing this word, “OOH….”! As you sing this word, bring your pitch from low to high, and back down to low again, much like you would actually say “Ooh” in everyday conversation!
You will find that with this word, you should be able to go from really low notes to rather high notes without much difficulty or break in your voice, and you might even feel your voice moving from the back of your head!
Master these Singing Exercises for Vocal Smoothness, and you will begin to develop a smooth set of vocals that can transition from low to high notes with greater ease!
