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

We're still working with music here, but thistime I'm taking an idea from a Chinese way of painting where they paint on a scroll.They'll do a landscape that covers a scroll, one is like a hundred feet long, and it'salmost like a panoramic view, and they just keep drawing a long the scroll. So we're goingto draw along with the music so that you end up with a whole concerto on a roll of paper.This is just plain old craft paper, it's nothing fancy. You'll want to use paint or ink, somethingfluid so that you can move along, although charcoal would work too. I just wouldn't workwith pencil, it doesn't probably move fast enough. And I'm just going to get ready, standingup is maybe better for this so that you can
move your arm more, and then you're just goingto let it roll up as you move along. So I'm going up, and I'll move myself along. Of coursewith this you really need a.And then I have this, just sort of this general feeling down here of that bit in between thevery rhythmic section. And I'm already running out of my paper so I'll turn around and usethe other side. And you kind of try to get your body working with the rhythm that youfeel. And you keep going back,and you can kind of hear this rhythm. And then what tends to happen with the BrandenburgConcertos is they start really small and very soft, and then they're going to end up gettingbigger and louder, and that's when your shapes will start echoing the loudness.
Music as a Language Victor Wooten at TEDxGabriolaIsland
Thank you very much. It's true I was born into a band; very literally, I mean that literally. When I was born, my four older brotherswho were already playing music, knew that they needed a bass player (Laughter) to round out the family band. I was born into that role.
As I'm older I'm looking back right now,now that I'm called a teacher. When I look back on that,and how I was taught, I realized that I wasn't really taught. Which is why I saythat music is a language; because if you thinkabout your first language, for me, and probablymost of us here might be English, so I'm just going to go with English. If you think about how you learned it,you realize you weren't taught it.
People just spoke to you. But the coolest thingis where it gets interesting because you were allowed to speak back. If I take the music example, in most cases, our beginners are notallowed to play with the better people. You're stuck in the beginning class. You have to remain there a few years, until you are elevatedto the intermediate, and then advanced;
and after you graduate the advanced class, you still have to go outand pay a lot of dues. But with language, to use a musical term, even as a babyyou're quot;jammingquot; with professionals. All the time. To the point that you don't even knowyou're a beginner. No one says, quot;I can't talk to you untilYou got to go over there. When you're older,then I can speak to you.quot;
(Laughter) That doesn't happen. No one tells you what you have to say. You're not madeto sit in a corner and practice. You're never even correctedwhen you're wrong. Think about it: when you're 23 years old,and you say a word wrong over and over, no one corrects you. If you say it wrong enough times,
instead of correcting you,your parents learn your way. (Laughter) And they start saying it wrong too! The coolest part of thatis that you remain free, with how you talk. And so you never have to followthe musical role of learning all these years and then,going and finding your voice. With your speaking voice,you've never lost it.
