Learn To Sing Easy Tips To Learn How To Sing
Hi. Aaron here from HowtoSing and I wantto talk to you today about learning to sing. What is it to learn to singé What are thefactors of learning to singé First thing is, Can anyone learn to singé That's a questionthat many people have. Maybe you yourself have. You kind of wonder, 'Do I have whatit takesé Do I have enough talenté Maybe you don't feel like you're super talentedor you weren't born with a ton of talent. You can kind of sing but you're just not reallysure if you can actually do it on a professional level or whatever. You're just not sure ifyou can even learn to sing. Let me just say this, that I believe anybodycan learn to sing because learning to sing
is two main factors. There's kind of a learningpart, the knowledge part, the more cognitive part I guess and then there's the exercise,kind of the more practical, the handson part. So the exercises, the vocal exercises, thewarmups and the strengthening exercises and then the knowledge is like the tips and tricksand all the stuff that you kind of have to know about the voice that will help you singbetter faster. The cool thing about the knowledge part, you think, 'Well, let's just do theexercises and get to developing the voice. That is awesome and that's a really, reallybig factor of singing because the knowledge part in some ways helps you learn to singbetter faster because certain tips and tricks
if you just do, you can know it, apply itimmediately and be singing better. One is if you know what's good posture, youwill have better breath support and better control of your singing. You will immediatelysing better just for having better posture or if you know your tongue is supposed torest on the back of your teeth during all vowels, you're going to have better tone immediately.All you have to do is remember it, apply it and you will be a better singer already. Butfor sure, the exercises to develop your voice just like any other muscle in the body needsto be toned and developed in order to perform at its peak level. The voice is made up ofmuscle, many muscles. Cartilages as well but
many muscles and that as you build those up,you get better coordination, better control and ultimately become a better singer. Sothose are the main two factors on learning to sing. I do want to give you â€“ I will give youtwo quick exercises pretty similar but just talk for a second about that. But before Ido, let me just say that as far as learning how to sing and if you want to seriously learnhow to sing, my recommendation is to take an online singing lesson program that is likea complete systematic kind of step by step program and you can go to my site at HowtoSing .I've actually got a ton of other tips and
tricks and have a tutorial up there of how tosing higher with less strain in your voice also but I also tell you what my favoriteonline singing lesson program is and you can check that out. Real quick before you go, let me just giveyou a singing exercise too. It's the same exercise but two different vowels. The firstis the E vowel. The E vowel is a narrow vowel which basically means it's going to be easierto get into your different ranges with a narrow vowel. With an open vowel, it's harder toget into your higher ranges without going into falsetto or into like an airy kind ofvoice.
So you start off with the E and with the E,this narrow vowel, I want you to go vocalizes and take that first note up vocalizes. Takeit up again vocalizes. So basically just start where you're comfortable kind of inthe middle. Take it up to what I just would say as like a one, two, three, two, one andthen keep climbing and keep climbing and keep climbing and that E will actually help youget up into your head voice and to your higher range without your voice cracking or breaking. Now once you get the E down, you can do eitherâ€“ you can do an 'ah, an 'ih or an 'eh â€“ 'ih or and 'ah. The 'ih is just a little lessnarrow and the 'ah is a little less narrow
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
