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
Can Anyone Learn To Sing The Simple Truth Revealed
Hi. Aaron here from HowtoSing and I wantto talk about, Can anyone learn to singé I want to answer that question, a very commonquestion. A lot of people wonder specifically, Do you have to be born with a ton of talentor can anyone learn to singé What they really mean by that is, Can I learn to singé I don'tfeel like I'm very talented and when I sing, like it's just not that pretty. Can I learnto singé I want to say there are two reasons why Ithink that yes, anybody can learn how to sing. Some people definitely are born with tonsof talent, more talent than others but that is such a small percentage. Most people haveto work toward everybody has to work toward
it. Even if you're born with talent, you'vegot to still work toward developing that talent and becoming a good singer but even if youdon't feel like you have a ton of talent, you could still become a singer and here'swhy. First one is that the voice is made up ofmuscle. The voice box is made up of muscle; cartilage too but a lot of muscle in there.So asking if you can learn how to sing is almost like asking if you can go to the gymand tone up your muscles by lifting weights and doing exercises. Yeah. I mean absolutely.Once you start working those muscles out, they will begin to become toned and the samething is with your voice. Once you start doing
the vocal exercises and doing the work ofhow to sing, the muscles become strengthened and you don't have the weak muscles that can'thold on to pitch and can't extend the range and do all that. But once you strengthen upthose muscles, you have more control of your voice, more control of your pitch, more controlover singing high notes, et cetera, et cetera. The second thing is vocal technique. Vocaltechnique is something that anybody can learn. It's just a technique. It just you have toget the right teachers and learn vocal technique and vocal technique has to do with all thekind of knowledge part of how to sing, so all the tips and tricks, the voice and howit works and all that stuff.
You may be wondering why you may have triedto learn to sing and maybe it just didn't work out for you. So here I am telling you,you can sing. But you're like, Well, I've tried it and I can't sing. A lot of thingscould be coming into play there. First of all, the vocal coach or vocal program thatyou did may not have been there are some better than others and that could have been partof the problem. Another thing is that we live in such a nowculture that maybe you tried for a couple of days and you're like, Oh, this isn't working,so you gave up for maybe a week or two weeks or I don't know. Learning how to sing, itreally like anything, it takes time. It takes
time and it takes discipline and doing vocalexercises. Really the singers, maybe if you're serious about singing, that you do vocal exercisespretty much everyday, at least three or four, five times a week. And you don't have to spenda ton of time doing it but it is a daily thing and it takes time. So if you really want to learn to sing, askyourself. Reach down deep inside and say, Am I serious about thisé Do I want to do thiséDo I have what it takes to really commit to this and learn what I need to learn and evenspend money if I have to, to really develop my voiceé
So that's it for that. I believe that youcan learn to sing if you really want to and when you have the time. I have tons of othertips and tricks and tutorials.
