How To Sing Good 3 Easy Tips For How To Sing Good
Hi there. Aaron here from Superior SingingMethod and in this tutorial, I want to talk about how to sing good. OK. How to sing good. The ironic thing aboutthe statement how to sing good is it is bad grammar. So let me just get that out of theway first. How to sing well, yeah, that's better grammar. So this is not a grammar lesson.This is actually a singing lesson so let's jump into that. How to sing well, how to sing good. Firstof all, at the end of this, I want to give you a good vocal exercise that will help youto be able to sing well and it's one of my
favorite ones. It's a good warmup exercisethat will kind of get you going in the morning as well. It's the only one you do. It's agood one to start with. So how do you sing wellé What are the different things that ittakes to learn how to do thaté First of all, understanding the voice. Thereare two probably yeah, three main things I think. It's like understanding the voice,learning proper technique and doing vocal exercise. So last one I'm going to give youis that vocal exercise. So understanding the voice, what does that meané Things like nasality. A lot of people whenthey sing, they sing and it just sounds kind
of like this. It sounds nasally and nasallydoesn't come across. It doesn't sound very good and nobody really wants to hear a nasallysinger. So understanding the voices, understandinghow to for example, it would be how to get rid of the nasality in your voice and it couldbe a lot of things but mostly it's probably the soft palate and I won't go too much intoit now. But soft palate is just beyond the hard palate which is the roof of your mouth.Soft is set behind there and usually nasally means soft palate is down too low. So understanding the voice, understandingthat the voice is a delicate instrument, understanding
that when you yell and you're like tryingto belt a note, like that, that puts a lot of strain on your voice and doesn't soundgood with tone but it also can hurt your voice. So just understanding those there is a lotof things to understand about the voice. These are just a couple of examples. The second thing is learning proper technique.Proper technique is things like learning how to breathe from your diaphragm. Breathingfrom your diaphragm is taking a just to give you a little, tiny glimpse of what it is,it's basically having proper posture, taking that complete breath and allowing your diaphragmto descend, creating space for your lungs
to be able to expand and your stomach cavityand as you sing, the tendency is to let your chest kind of collapse, to fall like that.But instead of doing that, keeping your chest nice and high, like kind of just like I amnow, not super high. Those are some of the basics of learning howto diaphragm breathe. So that's learning the proper techniques and there are a lot of techniquesof learning how to sing but that was just one example. So it's understanding the voice, learningproper technique and then doing vocal warmups. Vocal warmups are important because yourvoice is made of muscle and cartilage and
you need to build up those muscles to be ableto manipulate the notes the way you want to and to be able to sing all the things youneed to sing and know what your voice is going to do when. You need to strengthen those musclesso that they respond the way that you want them to respond when you're singing, rightéRight. So let's get to the voice exercise. This isa good one. It's one of my favorites as like a morning exercise. It's going to be Zs, Zs,We're going to do Zs on just basically five notes descending. So it's going to be vocalexercise. I started a little low. I will start a little higher. vocal exercise Dothat with me. vocal exercise And then you
How To Have A Scottish Accent
Hello, I'm Gareth Jameson. I'm an actor anda voice coach from londonvoicelessons. com. here are some tips for working on yourvoice. Now the key to any accent is to isolate the sounds that are specific to that accent. So, when I'm talking about a Scottish accent,I'm going to talk about a very generalized Scottish version of the English language,sometimes called Scottish English. There are of course many different accents dependingon whether you're in Glasgow, Edinborough, or Aberdeen. This one is probably what wecall a general Scottish accent. Now, the first thing you need to work on isyour quot;Rquot; sound. So, for most Scots speakers,
they don't actually use quot;rrrrquot; that we associate.It'd be very rare to hear quot;murderquot; with big long R's. It's much more common to roll the R just oneroll, called a tapped R. Bright red, so I say bright red like that. Or saying wordslike butter or bird. Notice that it's tapped, so it's not quot;birrrdquot;or not bird, bird. Also, if you get an L after the letter R, sometimes you'll have an extrasyllable on the word so that girl becomes quot;girl, girlquot; and world becomes quot;worldquot;. Theloveliest quot;girlquot; in the quot;worldquot;. Our next feature is the vowels in bath andlaugh are the same as in the vowels in trap
and man. So, quite often they are differentfor other accents, but in this accent they are the same. Bath, laugh, trap, and man. There are little difference: Bath, laugh,trap, and man. Also, the quot;ooquot; and quot;uquot; vowels are the same. In the UK at the moment, thereis a T. V. commercial with the tag line: quot;Good withfoodquot;. The narrator on the commercial is Scottish, so we hear quot;Good with foodquot;. They rhyme in his accent, and that's the samefor the quot;ooquot; and quot;uquot; sounds. So, that hook and pool are quot;hookquot; and quot;poolquot;. There is nodifference between the pull of a rope and
the swimming pool. Pool. pool and pull are the same. Pull. Finally, listen to this phrase which willshow you a few more features. It's not a problem if you haven't gotten any. It's not a problemif you haven't gotten any. Now, this is more to do with dialect thanaccent and in fact, while you're researching your accent, it is important to look up anydialect words, any words that are different in that accent than they are for other people.For example, rather of saying not, in Scots speak I might say quot;Notquot;. It's not a problem.
And rather than haven't, quot;have anyquot;. quot;It'snot a problem if you have any gotten any.quot;.
