Relax your jaw and throat
Relax your jaw and throat before trying to project. If you're tight when your voice is projected, it will not sound to its full potential.
Breathe from your stomach
Breathe from your stomach and not your shoulders and chest.
Open everything up
Open everything as wide as possible. Relax your body and push your voice out.
Use your whole body
Use your whole body, from the ground up. Push your voice up through your diaphragm, your chest, and your throat, and then out of your mouth.
Know your performance piece well so you can be confident on stage. The more confident you are, the more your voice will naturally project.
Have fun on stage
Have fun on stage. The more excited, confident, and loose you are; the better and more natural your voice will sound. Break a leg!
