Now let's be clear on something. Most professionals themselves don't singwell from a technical standpoint.
So just to sing like a Pro doesn't meanyour singing properly or great, but I have to point out that no matter where you getyour information, think about this: the person giving that information, have they achieveda high level of professional statusé And do they demonstrate students that haveprofessional statusé We have over 300 tutorials on my channel, withthe plethora, which means a lot, of students on my channel, many of which have achievedawesome professional status. Now just quickly go to Sara Loera, check outGabriela Guncikova, 10 second songs' Anthony Vincent, Mark Hudson from Dragon Force, Icould go on and on and on with a lot of the
students that have applied my course and achievedprofessional status. Now what does it mean to become professionaland how do we do ité Well it has to do with strength training andthe way we think about the voice and the way we strength train in order to build enoughprofessionalâ€“ism in what it is that we're doing to be able to sing strong with confidencenight after night with consistency.

Now, to be a professional singer, there'slots involved in this and it's not just only the physical or musical side, there'sa psychological side to this, but I want to show you a few things that you can do thatwill be really, really awesome. Okayé We're just going to run through a coupleof warmup exercises that will help you understand how to clean up the voice. Now, check out my tutorial on diaphragmatic support,check out my tutorial on open throat technique, it's the precursor of what you're goingto need to do, what we are about to do here
at this level. We're going to sing an AA vowel, and theAA vowel scale is going to go like this. Layâ€¦ Ahhhâ€¦ So AA and Ah, and we're going to actuallyslowly go through this to start to strength train the voice, here we go. Ladies, you'll do this up the octaveâ€¦ Layâ€¦
Ahâ€¦ Do this with us in octavesâ€¦ Layâ€¦ Ahâ€¦ Now, going between vowels, AA and Ah helpresiliency and the ability to relax the cords and to, with freedom, be able to go up anddown a scale without feeling tension in the throat, because we want to build strengthfor the sound. Layâ€¦
Singing Lessons Singing Lessons For Beginners
Hi. I'm Aaron from HowtoSing and I wantto talk for a minute about singing lessons. Singing lessons, kind of a broad topic butI actually want to cover three main questions when it comes to singing lessons. First one is, Do you have what it takesé Thesecond one is, Do you really need singing lessons to improveé The third one is, What'syour next stepé Then I want to give you an idea of kind of where to go to find good singinglesson programs and all that. Do you have what it takesé What I find withthe people I encounter, people I've encountered with lessons and the singing and want to singand all that, that you're your own worst critic.
So if you think that you can't sing or youjust feel like you weren't born with a ton of talent, I want to say that with the righttips and just getting started learning, a lot of people kind of just come out of theirshell and they really bud and become good singers. So don't let the demons, your own demons thatyou battle with, your insecurity let you think that you will not be able to sing, that youdon't have what it takes. The fact is, with the right instruction, anybody can learn tosing. That's a question that comes up all the time. Can I learn to singé Yes, you canlearn how to sing. I will get more into that
in this next question and the next questionwe will tackle is, Do you need singing lessons to improveé I think one of the problems is that we seeour favorite singers. They step on stage or we listen to their CDs or whatever and wedon't ever actually see them doing the vocal exercises, doing the vocal training, doingall the learning. So we just kind of assume that they didn't have to. They just woke upor they were born and then they just stepped on stage and they have these beautiful voices.They could just do that but that's just it's just not the way it is.
Your favorite singer, I guarantee whoeverit is, had vocal training. They did vocal exercises. That day you saw them, they probablydid a 30 or 45minute regimen of vocal exercises and do it daily. The fact is, vocal exercisesare really important. I know this is more about singing lessons but with singing lessons,what happens is you get all the things you need. Basically to learn how to sing is twobasic categories. There's a bunch of learning stuff about the voice, how it works, a lotof just tips and tricks that just help you, like having your tongue where is your tonguesupposed to be when you singé I don't know. Well your tongue is supposed to be restedup against those teeth for all the vowels
that you sing. So it's kind of where like, Hey, when yousay, Hey, where your tongue goes there. That's where it's supposed to be for all the vowelsounds and a lot of the consonant sounds and when you do a consonant sound, you want togo right back down there. So it's just little things like that that will affect your singingin a big way but you won't learn unless you take some type of singing lessons. So there'stons of stuff like that and the second part is what I was saying, the exercise part. Anybody can learn to sing because of vocaltechnique anybody can learn and singing exercises
everybody can do. You got to know the rightsinging exercises and all that. You got to learn how to preserve your voice. There'sjust a bunch of stuff that you can learn with singing lessons. So I think it's really important.I think that if you're really serious about wanting to sing which is the next one, whatis your next stepé The next step is kind of a personal inventory. Are you ready to dowhat it takes to become a singeré It does take time and effort. The voice is somethingthat people want to expand their range and sing high notes and do all this stuff andthat's fantastic. It's absolutely possible but it does take time. It does take effort.
Ep 15 Pop vs Classical Voice Lessons To The World
Hi everybody. My name is Justin Stoney andI'm the founder of New York Vocal Coaching here in New York City. Welcome to Episode 15 of Voice Lessonsto the World, the show where we want to answer your questions about singing fromall over the world. I'll give you a chance to ask questionslater. But our question for the week comes from Bulacan, Philippines and Coach Fatrick Sta. Ana (He's the founder of quot;Popstagequot; and heasked me to give the website, so it's
right here. Popstage it looks like these guys aredoing some great things.) But Coach Fatrick asks, quot;Dear Justin, What is the difference between popsinging and classical singingéquot; That's an awesome question Fatrick and I knowthat lots of you want to do multiple styles and i really encourage that. Ireally encourage you to not just get locked into one, but give your vocalcords variety. Do a lot of different things. So today we're going to talkabout the differences between pop and
classical. The very first one is simplyvolume. Classical singing is just louder than pop singing. And now that doesn'tmean to be loud. But when you're singing classically you don't use a microphoneand when you sing with pop you do use a microphone. And so you want to know thatas, as you're developing your voice, that when you're going to sing with theelements of classical, part of the purpose is to project the voice and beable to sing without a mic and to be able to sing over an orchestra and in alarge hall. With pop singing we purposefully do not want the voice to beso big because the mic's going to be
very close. If you sing too big, you're probably not going to have theagility and the dexterity and the lightness that we need. So classicalsingers be sure that you're singing as they say, quot;on the body,quot; with a lot ofconnection to the body, with a lot of great breath support, a lot of physicalenergy and a voice that can carry. We never want to push, we never want tobe loud, but we want to set up mechanics that will cause good healthy projection.We'll talk about one of those in a second. Pop singers purposefully do not makeyour voice so loud.
If you're singing pop loudly like I say,you're probably going to prevent the growth that we want as far as agilityand lightness and dexterity that we need for pop singing.So that's the first difference. Now one of those mechanical differences withvocal technique, is the larynx. And we've talked about this in the past. But we'lldo it again. Classical singers sing with a lowerlarynx. Pop singers sing with a higher larynx. There's gradations of laryngealcoordination that you can do. But I'd like to take a song here that could bein a pop setting or a classical setting,
America the Beautiful, and just show youwhat these larynxes sound like. So if I have. a little bit of a lower larynx, I have, quot;Ohbeautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain.quot; And if I lift up mylarynx and get a little bit of a lighter place with it, quot;Oh beautiful for spacious skies, foramber waves of grain.quot; And I get a little bit more into apop sound. So part of the thing that allows for more projection is that lowerlarynx. With a lower deeper sound, I can
