Singing Lessons For Beginners Learn How To Sing For Beginners Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy
Singing Lessons for Beginners. So you want to learn how to sing, or you want to start to learn how to sing. Well, I want to help you on your journey to understand some of the most basic, fundamental, andrudimentary things that takes a basic, or nonsinger into a decent singer, or even a great singer.And these are nonnegotiables, these are things that we all have to do, no matter what levelof singing we are, these are things that really help us on our journey for singing.So the very, very first thing is: Pitch. Now I want to talk about breath support and vowelplacement, and we'll get into some of that, but pitch. can you carry any kind of a tuneéYou know, can you sing quot;Happy Birthdayquot; or
can you sing a simple nursery rhymeé That'skey, and then, basically holding that pitch will help us determine how well you're goingto be able to translate this and grow quickly on your journey for singing. So I'm goingto take us through some simple scales and I'm going to do a male version and a femaleversion, so hang in there, I'll do the girls second, but the basic things are this: Thefirst thing is posture. We want to sit up straight. We don't want to get our spine tippedin any direction. We don't want to look up at the ceiling when we're going for high notes,or look down. We want to have a good command of our breath. Alright, so I'm going to havesome scales and I'm going to have you match
the tone of the scale with a very, very simplearpeggio, which is just a threenote chord, and I'm going to go through these notes verysimply and show you how you can start your journey for singing. So we want to open upour mouth, quot;AH, AHquot; we're going to do the AH vowel, and there's several vowels thatyou have to work to build muscle memory so that this becomes second nature, but for starters,we're just going to build some simple muscle memory. We're going to take a breath from our belly,from our abdomen, not from our chest like this. We want to take a breath from our belly,as best as we can, and then I have a whole section on diaphragmatic breathing on my websiteso if you're interested, I have all this in
my singing course called quot;How To Sing BetterThan Anyone Elsequot;. So, to get started, I'm going to do the meanaverage of the male voice, which is the baritone, or high baritone register, so we're goingto start with an AH vowel, and we're going to do something very simple. We're just goingto go quot;Lah, ah, ah, ahhh, ah, ah, ahhhhh.quot; And what we want, is we want to match that tone,so try to match the tone with me. quot;Lahhhhhhhhhhhhquot;. Andif you can, Open Up the Back of your Throat as wide as possible, that's comfortable, andtry to hear that nice, bright Ping. AHH, it's not uuuu, o uhhhh. righté It's AHHH!Lah, ah, ah, AHHH, ah, ah, ahhhhh. we're
going to move up the scale. Lah, ah, ah,ahh, ah, ah, ahhh. and we'll move it up a little higher. Try to match the tone.Lah, ah, ah, ahh, ah, ah, ahhhh. Remember to take your breath. The breath is very important.It's the engine that drives your car for singing, so take your breath, Lah, ah, ah, ahhh, ah,ah, ahhh. Now this brightness and this tone is actually the only true sound that reallygrows the voice. So it keeps us from strictures in the back of the throat, so it's not uh,uh, uh, uh, uh. (froggy voice sound) . and getting, choking on our vowel sounds, gettingcaught on the cord in the vowel, so let's continue.Lah, ah, ah, ahhh, ah, ah, ahhh.
Now what you want to do is try to match thistriad or this threenote chord that I'm singing in order to be able to get into that pitchand really use your stomach to do it, so I want you to take a breath between each oneof these phrases that we're singing. Then I want you to totally relax, and then I wantyou to keep that throat open every time you go to sing one of these scales, so it actuallycan start to develop this good, open throat technique, for on your journey to begin, forlearning how to sing. So, Ladies, the same is true for you.Now girls, you usually blow a lot more air than guys, so your challenge is to, insteadof going. and I'll start where a mean average
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
