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
Learn How To Sing With The Head Voice vs The Falsetto LESSON 14 Craig Shimizu Voice
This is Craig from Shimizu Voice again. Thisis a little different look because I just thought about this lesson and wanted to putit down. Couldn't wait for my natural lighting. It's the afternoon time now. It's toolate for natural lighting because I would be blasted out. In fact, let's see whatthat looks like. This is what happens would you should thetutorial in the afternoon. Hi, this is Craig from Shimizu Voice. Andtoday I'd like to talk about the head voice versus the falsetto. A lot of controversy.they have difficultydescribing it. There's a definition that,
that you go by, by, in terms of the actualmovement of the, the actual position of the vocal folds itself to produce the, uh, falsetto.I think the best definition so far is that the falsetto is using the outer edges of thevocal folds and the inner stronger parts of the muscle of the vocal folds doesn't move,are relatively inactive. And you're just using the outer portion of the vocal folds. The falsetto is what most people describeas that fluty type of weak sounding breathy high voice. I was going to say head voicebut then that's what the controversy is. So, falsetto would have this kind of sound.Haaâ€¦ Haaâ€¦
So, one of questions I have is that when,if I try to power up that sound, then, um, I get something likeâ€¦ ahhâ€¦ When I'm trying to demonstrate how sopranossingâ€¦ ahh So I make that sound. To me that was alwaysa strong falsetto. Cause the head voice is more like aâ€¦ ahhhâ€¦. ahhhâ€¦ ahâ€¦ So when that gets strong, it's likeâ€¦ ahhh.ahhh.ahh The falsetto, strong is â€¦. ahhh. Ahhh. Falsetto, strong is â€¦. ahhh. Head voice,strong is â€¦. ahhh. Chest voice.ahh.ahh.
The thing that gets me is when people aredemonstrating the falsetto, they say it's a light kind of sound. Haaaâ€¦.haaaa.thathas no power. Yet even when they are demonstrating it, I can hear the head voice creeping inâ€¦.haaaâ€¦.haaaaâ€¦.as they're trying to demonstrate the falsetto. So that's kind of my point that, that thehead voice or the falsetto is a breathy head voice. So I don't understand why it hasto be called a different sound. It, it, I know, uh, it was named a falsetto becauseit means false voice in. it's Italiané It's a false, false voice. That's why,the term falsetto. But when people are demonstrating it, it soundslike a breathy head voice. Or, is there such
a thing thené Is there a breathy head voiceéAnd if not, then, why isn't there a breathy, why isn't there a breathy head voiceé There'sa breathy chest voice. Hmm, that should be called.falsechestoé Probably the vocal foldposition is different than the, than a, uh, full tone chest voice. Ahh. Ahh. Ahh. Ahh.Sounds pretty different to me, but uh, why isn't it called falsechestoé For the same,for the same reason, in that it has more air coming out. Actually, in terms of voice training, to me,it doesn't matter. There is a purpose of how it can help you. Just noticed my computerwas. doing some research on this.on some
subjects that I could talk about. Uh. Anyway, it, uh. is it important to know whatvoice that you're usingé Uh, no, it's not. What's important is to know that, thedegree of breath that you have in your voice at any given time.Because.why is it.why is that so importanté Other than it sounds differenté It's important because.the more.becausethe higher the volume of air.that's the scientific term for amount of air that'scoming out. Always, there's some confusion a lot of times between velocity of air, whichwe love. Velocity is the speed of the air
Ep28 How to Sing Falsetto vs Head Voice
A common question my students often ask whenthey're singing, is quot;Is that head voice or is that falsettoéquot; Inside this tutorial, I'llshow you the difference between falsetto and head voice so you'll know how to sing withboth to choose the best for your songs. Hi, I'm Chuck Gilmore with Power to Sing. Thedefinitions of falsetto and head voice often disagree. I define them based on the conditionof the vocal cords. Are the vocal cords connected or disconnectedé When your vocalcords are disconnected, you are in falsetto. Here's a slowmotion tutorial found on of the vocal cords disconnecting. This is a scope of voice artist Mal Webb from theUK. In this tutorial he's making some unusual
sounds. eeeeeeeeeeee You can see and hearthe vocal cords suddenly breaking apart. This is falsetto. While in falsetto, you cansee the edges of the vocal cords are barely touching as they open and close. With falsettoa lot of air passes through the cords. ahhhhh Because they're in falsetto, there's littleto no resistance to the air pressure from the lungs. You can sing high very easily infalsetto. ahhhhhhhh You can also bring the falsetto voice down quite low like this. ahhhhhhhSome singers can bring falsetto all the way down to where you would normally sing in chestvoice. Falsetto will not blend into the chest voice. In order to get back into the chestvoice, the vocal cords have to reconnect.
This usually involves a 'break' type feelingback into a connection. ahhhhhh For men singing in falsetto there's a significantloss of the lower overtones of the chest voice. I compare it to my Minney Mouse voice. HelloHello. My name is Minney Mouse. For women, there is a loss of the lower chest overtonesin falsetto voice as well. This can result in a breathy, airy tone quality. Also, ifI try to lean into my falsetto by increasing the volume and air there is little to no resistance.In fact, it seems to blow the cords further apart. ahhhhhhh Finally, there is some opinionthat years of singing primarily in falsetto is a leading cause of the 'vocal wobble' asyou get older. Because the vocal cords have
lost their ability to adduct firmly. How canyou tell if you are in falsetto and not head voice when you're singing on high pitcheséIf you can descend the scale and sing into your chest voice without reconnecting, thenyou are in head voice. ahhhhhhh If you can sing down the scale into chest voice and youhave to reconnect, you are in falsetto, because falsetto will not blend into the chest voice.ahhhhhh Some singers can disconnect into falsetto on high pitches. If you can disconnector flip, then you were in head voice. That is, your cords were connected. I can't dothat after a certain pitch, so that doesn't work as a test for me on higher notes. Itmight work for you. How to sing in head voice.
When your vocal cords are connected you areeither in chest voice or head voice. Your lower pitches are your chest voice and thehigher pitches are your head voice. Confusion between falsetto and head voice often occurswhen we are singing the higher pitches. This is because on the higher pitches the resonancefor both falsetto and head voice vibrates in our heads. ahhhhh Falsetto ahhhhh Headvoice Both resonating in the same place, the head. The difference is with head voice theresonance is made with connected vocal cords. In contrast, the resonance created by falsettois made with disconnected vocal cords. Both resonate in the head cavities. But the vocalcords are different. Whether connected or
disconnected vocal cords, on higher pitches,they both resonate in the same place. In head voice the vocal cords vibrate in a deeperfashion. That means they're opening and closing more firmly from bottom to top. This is trueeven more in chest voice. In head voice you can control the amount of air that is beingresisted by the vocal cords. You can be resisting very little air. ahhhhhhh I'll add a littlemore resistance to that. ahhhhh If I were in falsetto, it's a little harder. ahhhhhhhIt kind of blows the cords apart. ahhhhhh With my head voice I can get a little morepurchase with my vocal cords. Because your vocal cords are connected you can easilyadd more resistance to air by closing your
