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

The Musiah Piano Method Tutorial The Best Way To Learn Piano Keyboard Music Online

applauseHello and welcome. My name is Brendan Hogan. Today in this little session we are goingto talk briefly about the Musiah Teaching Method and in particular how the method appliesto the teaching of note reading. But before we get into it too much, let'sjust look at what is it that we actually teachingé We are basically teaching piano lessons, eventhough we use keyboards for the obvious practical reasons.But what else is there about the method that is uniquely originaléOK well first of all let's have a look at some of the main methods that are known throughoutthe world today.

There are basically three main methods.there's Suzuki, Yamaha and traditional teaching. Now the thing with Suzuki, no disrespect toSuzuki, but in summary it is teaching the kids or adults to play by ear.Yamaha method, again no disrespect to the Yamaha method I'm sure there is more to itthan this, but in summary the gist of Yamaha is it's all about teaching the kids to readthe notes using solfa names DO RE ME FA SO etc.And then of course there is traditional, and by traditional I mean where we actually teachthe kids to read the notes. The thing is, with Suzuki as an example, Iused to leave next door to a young girl in

her teens and she was getting ready for herGrade 8 exam and basically she couldn't play the pieces and she would ask me to come inand actually sight read the pieces for her so she could record them in order to hearhow they sound and then she would essentially learn them for her exam by ear from the tape.So that's just an example of one of the deficiencies of the Suzuku method if it's used in isolation,without at least some exposure to traditional teaching where we learn to read the notes.Yamaha, well you know it's another approach, another valid approach I guess when takenon its own merits. But I have had experience where I've taughtstudents who've learnt with Yamaha for perhaps

three years and they don't know where MiddleC is. They call Middle C quot;DOquot;. And I point to the key and say quot;what's thatnoteéquot; and they'll say quot;oh that's DOquot;. What the Yamaha teachers never seem to teachthe kids is that DO can shift, so for example in the key of C Major, C is DO, but in thekey of G Major G is DO. So it shifts.So there is no such thing as quot;oh Middle C is DOquot;.It's just interesting some of the things you actually see when you come across this variousmethods. So by far out of the three existing wellknownmethods I would say traditional teaching is

the best.However, having learnt traditionally myself, there are some drawbacks even to traditionalteaching. And it's those drawbacks and limitations thatled me to gradually overtime develop the Musiah Teaching Method.When I was a young kid learning piano, I thought I was the only one that had this problem,but basically my left hand was weaker than my right hand.So I was a little bit stronger, more confident at reading and playing with the right handthen with the left hand. And then as I got to know other students asI, you know, mingled with them in music school

and so on, I found that some of them had thesame problem. And over the last 17 years as owneroperatorof Australia's largest inschool keyboard music program, I found that many of the kidsthat were being taught through our program also had a similar issue.And in fact so had many of the teachers. So basically it seems to be the case that95 percent of students all over the world from Ireland to Australia and everywhere inbetween have this funny little thing, which is a deficiency in the left hand.Why is thaté The answer is surprisingly simple. It's basically the way they're being taught.You know it comes down to even otherwise good,
