How To Sing Like A PRO Open Throat Technique Tutorial Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy
How to sing like a Pro. Hey guys, my name is Ken Tamplin, and welcometo Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy, where the proof is in the singing. Now, in order for me to be able to teach youhow to sing like a Pro, I'd better have achieved professional status myself, and Ialso better show you that I have students that have gone from amateur status to professionalstatus. 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. So I have a singing course called How To SingBetter Than Anyone Else, you can check it out on Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy dot com,and I walk you through, stepbystep what it's going to take to help you become aprofessional singer.
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€¦
Dan Homsey Neighborhood Empowerment Network NEN Visit to Christchurch Wellington
Hi there, my name is Daniel Neeley. I'mthe manager of Community Resilience at the Wellington Region Emergency Management officehere at Wellington New Zealand and I'm here with Daniel Homsey, the director of Neighborhoodresilience for the city and county of San Francisco, one of the Rockefeller foundations100 resilient cities and the presidio institute fellow. Welcome Daniel. Hello Dan, thanksfor having me. Thank you very much for coming down today. Can you tell us a little bit aboutyourself and your organization, what you do in San Franciscoé Absolutely. So I work forthe city and county of San Francisco, I work for Neal Mckelly our city administrator.My day to day responsibilities are really
learning how we can position our communitiesto be successful during any time of stress. and the condition of being resilient and soI am honored to have fantastic coord of organizations and agencies, not just city agencies but privatesector partners, businesses, we have foundations, academic institutions, local Universities, nonprofit and of course of amazing community leaders and faith based organizations. Weare taking a very holistic approach; I guess the term to use is a kin to what FEMA callsthe whole community approach. To look to how we can really get ready for that time whenall of us are going to come together and achieve great things. The lessons that we are seeingall over the world as you and I saw when we
were in Christchurch just the last few days,was that no one agency, no one organization is going to achieve that goal. That it'sreally important before we have to come together and accomplish these tasks is to build thoserelationship that are rich in trust and reciprocity so that when it comes time to meet the needsof our residents the people that count on us every day to be successful that we'renot meeting for the first time and working out our operational differences or gaps; thatthose are all put to bed perhaps years before and we can work seamlessly together to meetthe goal that we collectively have already decided on. That's fantastic. Can you tellus a little about some of the initiatives
you are working on in San Franciscoé Wellthere is a mirade of initiative, I'm honored to manage something called the neighborhoodEmpowerment Network, the cohorts I just described of agencies are encapsulated in the initiative,the network. And what we do is try to build tools, resources and methodologies that neighborhoodscan plug into to achieve their goals. That's one of the most important qualities of ourwork, is that we really want to be reflective of the communities priorities. I feel thatto date historically, governments sort of come in and told communities what their problemsare, what their solutions are and sort of, get out of the way while we implement them,and ultimately things never really move the
needle. We're advancing in San Francisco sortof an inverted pyramid model, which is sure governments big and powerful but we're reallyhere at the beckoning of our community leaders. the idea of being is to align ourselves withall the other agencies and organizations and entities that care about our neighborhoods,but then listen to the community, afford them a blank slate to come together and figureout what their goals and priorities are and then deploy our assets in reflection of those.It's sort of maybe a logical approach, but its innovative by many peoples standards andit's a little bit time consuming because you have to provide them sort of the technicalsupport to go through that process but on
the back end the work that you generate hasa higher impact rate and a higher participation level because the communities own it, afterall it was their idea. I believe this has been going on for a few years in San Franciscoand you have been leading it. What are some of the outcomes that you have seen just inthat short period of timeé Well, for about 7 years now we've had the Neighborhood Empowerment Network up and running, initially we had the tremendous support of Gavin Newsom who is now lieutenant Governor of the State of California, and then I was honored to then also work for the cityadministrator now mayor, Mayor Ed Lee, and it's been overwhelming. We've learned alot, we're exploring a new paradigm shift
TEDxEQCHCH Helena NorbergHodge The Economics of Happiness
I am very happy to comeafter Christie Walk because what I have to sayis very similar. As we all know, everything from global warmingto the global financial crisis tells us that we needa fundamental change in society. And I am going to be arguingthat for all of us around the world the highest priority,the most urgent issue is fundamental change to the economy.
And from my point of view, the change that we need to makeis shifting away from globalizingto localizing economic activity. Localization is a solution multiplier that offers a systemic,farreaching alternative to corporate capitalism,as well as communism. It's a way of dramatically reducingCO2 emissions, energy consumption of all kind, and waste.
At the same time, as adapting economic activity,localizing economic activity, can restore biodiversityas well as cultural diversity. It's a way of creatingmeaningful and secure jobs for the entire global population, and perhaps is the most important of all, because it is about rebuildingthe fabric of connection, the fabric of community between people,
and between peopleand their local environment: it's the economics of happiness. I first had my eyes open to this,I was forced to see this connection between the economy out thereand our inner well being, our happiness, when I was thrown into a situationon the Tibetan Plateau, in Ladakh, called Little Tibet,about 35 years ago. This area had been sealed offfrom the outside world, and it was suddenly thrown open
to the outside world,to the outside economy. And I saw with my own eyes how subsidized food,coming in on subsidized roads, running on subsidized fuel, how that food and other goodsbrought in from thousands of miles away destroyed the local market. And almost overnight,this led to unemployment, this in turn, led to frictionbetween people
who lived peacefullyside by side for generations. After a decade, Buddhists and Muslims in Ladakhwere literally killing each other. I also worked in Bhutanbetween '84 and '89, and I saw exactly the same pattern there. There, it was Buddhists and Hinduswho were killing each other. So, I became very motivated to try to bring this message outto the rest of the world.
