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.

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€¦

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
Singing with Allergies
hey guys I'm Katie Talbot with SingingSuccess and I want to talk to you about dreadful allergies i know we have a few tutorials and even afew blogs on this subject but it seems like this year at least in Nashville hasbeen one of the worst years for allergies and i say that because mybody has been actually holding onto allergies more than it usually does and I've had to kind of up my defensetowards it and I just wanted to give you a few pointers on what I use when itcomes to allergies and some of the
specific practices that I do likeat home and then some of the exercises that I do as well. when it comes togetting up in the morning especially as a coach I've got to get my voice warmed upquickly for six or sevenhour days of teaching background singing vocalproducing. you name it I've got to get my voice ready to go but when we wake up with allergies it'sjust that that tickle in your throat even and that's what I have even rightnow and it's so good to get that light and right connection so I'll kind ofstart with (edge exercise)
digging into that vocal fry and thensliding up to an easy clean connection just a (edge exercise) this is easy to do too when it comes to morning too because our voices are down here wedon't really want to be up we don't want to be give me mycoffee don't talk to me until I'm through my coffee so use that to your advantage. so niceeasy quot;ah edge ecersisequot; just gonna walk up a little bit (ah edge exercise) and if open mouth a little bit difficult
go to an quot;mquot; go (mm exercise) because then you're not letting any airflow out you're keeping those muscles coordinated without any air flow it's more so the compression (edge exercise) this is such a great exercise to getthose edge cords coordinated again get that light and right connection againuse those lip rolls ok we do this because it takes pressureoff the cords
it gets you through those bridges withoutthose breaks this is why we are so passionate about this exercise. so I like to do a mix octave in the morning and I'll just kinda if I don't have a piano with me i'll just (demonstrates lip roll exercise) again i'm all about dancing through my bridges (lip roll exercise)(lip roll exercise) this going back and forth really turnsyour voice into the vocal instrument that is. it doesn't give you a chance toto think of quot;okay, here comes a high notequot; in that back and forth going back and forth
that's so great to keep that mind atease and just let the freedom of your voice happened that connection come another thing is actually i'm going toshow you something I am an advocate for oils and one thing that we use here atthe studio all the time is our doTERRA oils and a huge advocate for allergiesis the peppermint oil and I always have one of these i actually just like I havea few drops left of this one I've been using it like crazy and what Ilove about this oil and you can find just a peppermint oil at whole foods.I love doTERRA just because i love what
