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
How to Play Steel Pan Drums in a Band Playing Leads on Steel Drums
Hi. My name is Alan Lightner. I'm here withExpert Village. We're going to talk a little bit about steel pans and the various instrumentsin the steel pan family and their roles in the traditional music, which is Calypso orSoca. The music that comes from Trinidad, the same place that the steel pans originate.So I'm standing in front of this instrument here. We call it, typically, a lead pan orit's also called a tinner pan. It's called the tinner pan in Trinidad usually. It's kindof a misnomer just because it's more in the soprano range, but tinner pan is what we callit, or a lead pan. It also is the instrument or drum that plays most of the melodies, mostof the lead lines in a song. It's got a range
from that is much higher than the other drumsin the family. This particular drum goes down to a low quot;dquot;. That's where, that's the firstnote, that's the lowest note that it has. Other lead pans or tinner pans may go downa couple more notes down to a low quot;cquot;. I don't have a low quot;cquot;. I have this high quot;cquot;. Thisis my lowest note on this drum. And I've got about three octaves. There are about, aboutthirty notes or so, give or take a few, depending upon who made your drum on a lead pan. Aboutthirty notes, and as I say, this drum is mostly responsible for playing melodies. What I'dlike to do is perhaps play a little, short melody. A little, small melody here on thelead pan and then I'll take you through the
rest of, the rest of the instruments and showyou how, how they all play their part and how it all fits together. So if I just playthe melody which is just on an quot;fquot; scale, very simple melody and I'll take that andgo around on all the drums and show you how, how they sound different and the differentroles that they'd have in the music. If this were played like a Calypso, it might be alittle more rhythmic than that. It might be something like. That's the sound of thelead pan.
