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 Sing in a Choir Like a Pro

Sing Out Proud How to Sing in a Choir Sing Out Proud Intro Coming up on this episode, why singing ina group is harder than singing solo, 5 keys to singing like a pro in choir, what yourdirector really means, and, in the quick start tip, blending exercises to try at your nextrehearsal. I'm Kim Snyder, this is Sing Out Proud. If you hear my mother tell the story, I wasborn to be the third part in a family trio. So when I was four, I started singing in agroup. It wasn't until I was 16 that I actually

got to sing a solo, which was a really coolthing and I didn't want to go back to group singing, but I did because there is just somethingreally cool about it. I have sung in choirs and I have sung in ensembles, have been asolo Indie artist, a church choir director, a vocal teams instructor, and I still getthe same questions from singers now as I've heard from all of those experience's. Peopleseem to think that singing in a group is easy, singing a solo is harder, and somehow you'rea better singer if you get to sing a solo. Well do better singers get solosé Yeah. Sodoes that automatically mean that you don't have to be a very good singer to sing in achoiré NO!

Would you believe that it actually takes awhole different set of skills to understand how to sing well in a group setting. Thoseare skills that you don't ever need as a soloist. In that way, it is harder to singin a group than it is to sing solo. Don't believe meé Well think about it thisway. Singing a solo you don't have to pay attention to how your voice fits in with othervoices, or if it plays well with others, you don't have to compete to be heard over otherparts, you don't have to battle different personalities (unless you have several allon your own and that's just a different episode). You don't have the distractionof other singers weakness's. Like people

next to you who have pitch problems, or rhythmproblems, or are missing the words, or they are way too quiet, or way too loud, and youdon't have to navigate through your music with a large band or orchestra which is completelydifferent than a couple guitars, a keyboard player, and a drum. I want to make this super super clear. Singingin a choir is NOT for lesser singers. People have the impression that because a lot ofgroups are open to anyone, that means it doesn't really take any talent to do it. Couldn'tbe any farther from the truth. Even a really great singer will be challenged by the totallydifferent dynamic of being in a group setting.

So if you haven't done it, for what everreason, find yourself a choir and bring it! You'll learn so much. Because choirs and ensembles have a numberof people, your going to have singers at different levels of ability, but regardless of whereyour at, and where the other singers around you are at with their voice, you can singlike a pro in a choir by following these 5 steps. 1. KNOW YOUR MUSIC.I know, you think, “My life is busy, I'll get there and I'll look it up, its not verycomplicated, I can figure it out.� But the

truth is, if you don't know your music byheart, when you get there your brain has to focus on figuring it out and that means yourbrain has no time, no effort, and no room for number 2,3,4, and 5. 2. KNOW YOUR PART.You need to memorize where your part is going from unison to harmony's and where yourpart is going if your singing a harmony. If you don't its going to be really easy foryou to be drug off to somebody else's part. Even if you consider yourself to be a goodsinger, you might have somebody next to you who is going in a totally different direction,either because they're supposed to, or they

Singing Lessons For Beginners The 5 Laws Of Singing Learn Singing with Ken Tamplin

Hey, Guys! Ken Tamplin from Ken Tamplin VocalAcademy and I'm here to talk about the Five Laws of Great Singing.First: SUPPORT. What is thaté Everyone talks about support. “Diaphragmatic Supportâ€�.It's actually your whole abdominal cavity, not just the diaphragm, and it's when wetake a breath, we take a breath like this: Our stomach, when we take a breath in goes(stomach comes out). When we breathe out, we push down, kind of like we're going tothe bathroom. . or doing a situp. Let's do it again… in… out… and we push down.And we use this as the engine that drives our “carâ€�. It's the most important part, which is Diaphragmatic Support, or Abdominal

Support. Second: Vowel Placement. The ONLY sound thatTruly Grows the Voice is a Bright Ping, or a Bright Timbral Sound. It's not “huuuuuh,huuuuuh� or a froggy sound. It's a real bright AH! It's the LAH!! AH!!! Like the wants to see your tonsils in the back of your throat. So the throat should be OPEN.It's called Open Throat Technique. And the tongue should be completely flat to the baseof the jaw, to keep any stricture away from the back of the throat, like this. “LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!�So that you can tell “LAAAAAAAH!� that it's completely open, it's very bright,and that brightness, or that PING is truly

the only real sound that grows the voice.Third: Air Management or Breath Management, Breath Control. I'm not going: “HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!�and killing you with sound. I'm controlling my air, I'm using my diaphragm to do allmy work, it's the engine that drives my car, and I'm holding back my air and lettingresonance take over because my wellplaced vowel sound of “AH� the way I just didit, “LAAAAAH!� is able to resonate and relax into the sound.Fourth: Stress Management or Stress Relief. I didn't go “LAAAAAH!� I don'tfreak out and actually close down on my body and tense up. What I do is I relax to thesound. “LAAAAAH!� I relax to the sound

so that I can use my diaphragm to do all mywork for me. It's my muscle, the engine that drives my car, that relaxes this openthroat technique. Finally, Fifth: The Psychology of Singing.If you freak out, and you worry about the high note, because you don't know how toget there. It has to do with the way you relax and think about the notes themselves, in orderto be able to get into good vowel placement, and understanding how to build chest, headvoice, and a mixed voice inbetween, to get you through the passagio, which is the passageway,from “LAAAAAAAAAAH� to get through that passageway to provide you the ability to singseamlessly, endtoend, with a lot of notes

that you can control if you apply these factors.Thank you for joining me.
