How To Sing Better For Guys Part 1
Is Everybody Readyé Well, Alright, then! Let'sGO!!!! Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah! How to Sing Better for Guys. Welcome to KenTamplin Vocal Academy, where we're going to be discussing How To Sing Better for Guys. Hi, Guys. Ken Tamplin from Ken Tamplin VocalAcademy, and I'm going to teach you a little bit about the voice and voice lessons today. This is Part One in a ThreePart series onHow to Sing Better for Guys. Now, there's a lot of different styles anda lot of different approaches to singing,
so that one subject isn't just how to singbetter for all guys, because it's how to sing better in whatever style you're looking tosing. Well, there are some very basic, nonnegotiables to singing, and I want to point out that mostof the time, not all of the time, but most of the time, guys want to sing harder thangirls. They want to get out there and just belt and wail. .and there's the other side, of R'n'B or Pop guys that are just looking to have somesoul, and some good licks, and some good tone, and good resonance, and stamina, andso forth, AND range, which we all want.
But I want to cover both aspects fairly briefly.I'm going to discuss Rock Singing first, and then I'm going to break into more Pop andR'n'B. So the very first thing is, is that we wantto have awesome posture. You want to sit up straight, or stand up straight, and by theway, when you sit, you lose up to 30% of your strength in your abdomen when you're singing,so I recommend you stand, if you can, but anyway, so you're going to want to stand,and you're going to want to take a breath from your belly, from your abdomen. Insteadof breathing like we do like this, from our chest, we want to breathe from our abdomen,from our belly, and our diaphragm. So you've
heard a lot about diaphragmatic support, soI'm not going to cover that here, I have some tutorials on my website regarding diaphragmaticsupport, and I have an amazing course called quot;How to Sing Better Than Anyone Elsequot;.So anyway, I want to talk about how to sing better for guys, so we're going to start firstwith this bright quot;PINGquot; in an quot;AHquot;vowel. quot;AH. AH.quot; I coined a phrase, it's called quot;IT'sthe LAH!!! AHHH!!quot; and it's that nice, Open Throat, Bright Ping Sound that keeps us fromsort of choking on our vowel sounds or pinching and squeezing as we go up.Now there's a lot to this but I'm going to just go through the basic elements of thisfirst, and then if you're interested, check out
my course, or check out my channel and I covera good amount of this stuff. So, we're going to start with the mean averageof singers, and that would be a baritone. And so we're going to start down in like amidbari or upper midbari range, and we're just going to go through a simple triad scalelike this: Lah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.And try to keep the jaw as stable as possible. Try not to move the mandible, or the jaw,keep it in the marble or static or stable position, we're going to continue up a triadscale, like this: Lah, ah, ah, AH, ah, ah, ahhh.Don't forget your breath. Take your breath,
and use your breath, bring in the breath,kind of like you're doing a situp, the feeling of how much strength is required when you'redoing a situp. So let's continue. , Lah, ah, ah, AH, ah, ah, ahhh.Take your breath. Relax the shoulders, relax the arms, relax the neck. let's continue:Nice, bright, Open AH. I don't mean quot;loh, oh, oh, ohhh. or luh, uh, uh, uhh. I meanquot;AHquot;. Lah, ah, ah, AH, ah, ah, ahhh. Do yourselfa favor. Even get out a handheld mirror and look at the back of your throat, and see ifyour throat is nice and wide open, and that your tongue is placed to the base of the jaw,so it's not causing any stricture, or any
How To Sing Better Tips To Learn How To Sing Better Today
How to Sing Hi. My name is Aaron from Superior SingingMethod and in this tutorial, I want to talk about how to sing. OK. How to sing, kind of a broad topic butI'm going to narrow it down. At the end of this, I want to give you a really good exercise,one of my favorite exercises that will get you a little farther down the road of actuallyhow to sing. But let's talk for a minute about how to sing. What does that even mean to learnhow to sing and sing betteré I break it down into sometimes three, sometimes four differentcategories but I will give you four right
now. Learning how to sing is learning the instructionpart. So right now, this is part of the instruction. I'm going to give you that vocal exercisebut just to give you a little bit of instruction about the voice and how it works and how singingworks because the more you know about the voice and how the voice works when it comesto singing, the more you can apply these techniques and concepts to singing and to the exercisethemselves to start shaping your voice the way you want it to be so you have the besttone, the most resonant, full kind of sound. You can hit the high notes, all that kindof stuff.
So instruction is the first part. The secondpart is then I guess kind of obvious is the exercises. You got to have the exercises becausethe exercises are just like the rest of your body. You need to work out, exercise to keepin shape and to be able to make your body do the things that you want it to be ableto do to have the flexibility and the strength to do what you want to do. Third one is systematic. Learning singingsystematically is really the way to go. The link below is I have an eightweek systematicprogram that you can check out at some point but I believe that systematic is the way togo because you learn the right thing at the
right time and you're not only systematicallydoing the exercises but you're also learning the things in the right order and doing thingsin the right amount of time and repeating there's a lot of repetition which leads meto the next one and that's just being consistent. Use the repetition to consistently build andbuild and build your voice. So those are kind of the four main thingsand just along the lines of that last one, the repetition is I know that's kind of thedifficult part, righté I think we live in a culture that we don't want to do thingsover and over and we don't want to like work really hard to get to things and I get thatand with these tutorials, my point and my goal
is get you singing as good as you could possiblysing as fast as possible for sure but it does take repetition and it takes time. As youdo the exercises, this one that I'm about to give you and other exercises of courseyou need a variety of exercises but this is a really good one. It's not just going to take once and you'regoing to sing better. You know that. Intuitively, you know you're not just going to get betterby, Oh, do this exercise for 10 minutes and I can sing better. But if you do it this consistentlyfor two or three days, a week, two weeks, those kinds of things, you will start it'snot like all of a sudden you will be like
the greatest thing in the world but you willnotice a marked improvement in your voice. You will see improvement and that will encourageyou to be more consistent and get more instructions. Do more exercises. Do the systematic thingand the consistency and repetition. So what I want to talk to you about today,the instructional part, and this is all instruction but the instruction part of the actual voiceand how it works. What I want to talk about is the larynx. This is one of the problemsthat most singers have is that when they go to sing high notes, what they're doing isthey're raising their larynx up. Maybe you do this as well. When I'm not paying attentionand I'm singing, sometimes I still even do
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. I've got a good tutorial up on HowtoSing . You can click thelink below or just come visit me there and that tutorial is free. I've got a lot of otherfree stuff on there.
