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
South African Cuisine An Introduction to South African Food
As we made our way from Johannesburg to CapeTown we enjoyed trying as many different kinds of South African cuisine as possible. FromBraai to Biltong we sampled a lot of new things for the first time. Aside from possibly Argentina,I can't think of a country that does better barbecue and wine. However, I learned my lessonthat barbecue is merely a sauce and grilled meat to perfection is what you can Braai.Come join us as we eat and drink our way around South Africa. Right now we're at Wild Farm in Wildernessand we're waiting for one of my favorite things. It's called Braai. It's South African barbecueand it is absolutely phenomenal.
So in the background we've got our lovelylittle log cabin. I'm drying out a towel right now. But anyways that is besides the point.The team here at the hostel is now working on the barbecue. They're stoking the fireso we are going to show you the whole process. Let's go cook some Braai. And Audrey has made a new best friend. Whois thisé It's Kika. Is it playtime or nap timeé It looks likenap time. You want to take this one home in your backpackéYes. She would fit nicely. Not a bad little view from over here huhéWhat are you drinkingé Um, apple cider.
Alright, we've got the grill master here andhe's going to tell us what makes Braai much better than barbecue. Well, firstly, barbecue is a sauce. Hahahaha. But the difference with a South African Braaiis the fact that we use real wood instead of charcoal. And it gives a different flavorto the meat. And that is a big thing. Excuse me. What have we got hereé We've got some goodchicken. Look at that. This is sausage as well. That looks so good.
But first. So underneath the Braai that is where youhave the meat that is already done and the cheesy mushroom bread. Here is the finished product. Look at that.Wow! So that is the breadé Yep. It's the cheesy mushroom bread. Show us that.Woah. It is almost like a sandwich. A hot sandwich. That's for me. Alright, we are checking out your plate. Whatdo we got over hereé So it is all dished up.
My first traditional Braai. We've got somechicken, some sausage and some meat. So I am ready to dig in. What else do we have asidefrom thaté Well, there is salad and potatoes on the side and some feta cheese. But whois focusing on that. Okay, first bite. Who cares about that stuff. Mmmm. That is wonderful.You did a great job. Cool, man. Yeah, seriously. Alright, stop filming me and enjoy your foodman. Hahahaha. Alright, I'm trying the sausage. That is amazing.South African Braai sausage is better than anything else I've ever tried. Well Hello from South Africa. We just finishedraiding a supermarket where we picked up as
many South African snacks as we could. Wegrabbed chips, chocolate bars, soda drinks and we're going to try them all for you. Sothis is our South African taste test. So over here I've got myself Nik Naks. It'sa maize snack and I think the packaging looks great. Have a look in the bag. Those kindof look like cheesies. They look like cheese puffs and they taste like cheese puffs. It'svery airy and crunchy. It's a nice light snack. Good snack for the road. I'm giving it thethumbs up. Road tripping snack. I'm trying here the Chocolate Log. And I havea feeling, oh yeah, it is a marshmallow on a crispy wafer. I wonder if it is going totaste a bit like a wagon wheel or a krembo.
The who walked away Maria Phalime TEDxJohannesburg
I'll never forget that Saturday night. I was working at a Community Health Center in the sprawling Cape Town townshipof Khayelitsha. I was on call and, typicallyfor a Saturday night, it was hectic. I worked with another , and together we saw dozens of patientsthrough the course of the night. Most of them were drunkand injured in some way. Most of these injuriesweren't very serious.
There were stabbings, beatings, some superficial gun shot wounds. All that these patients requiredafter we'd assess them was pain relief, and dressings,or stitches to their wounds. Admittedly, there were some serious cases. We'd be alerted to them by the sound of a stretcher being wheeledat high speed down the corridor, and my colleague and I would dropwhatever we were doing to attend to them.
Once we'd stabilize them,we'd then refer them on to secondary and tertiary level sfor further management. We couldn't save a few of these cases. One of the patientsthat we did manage to stabilize was a man in his early thirties. He was brought in at around three in the morningwith a stab wound to his back. The knife had penetrated
quite deeply into the fleshing musclejust below his right shoulder blade and he bled profusely. Our priority on first seeing him was to stop the bleedingand to rehydrate him. It was particularly importantto rehydrate him because he was extremely drunk, so chances were he was alreadydehydrated before his injury. After we'd stabilized him,I prepared his referral notes
and I made arrangements for an ambulance to take him to a secondary level , where he would need to be seenby the surgeons there to repair his wound. I saw other patientsafter that particular patient, and by morningI was getting ready to go home. That's when I heard himin the room next to mine. He was shouting at oneof the nurses and swearing at her. quot;I have been left here to die,quot;he kept shouting,
and he didn't seem to believer her when she told himthat he'd already been attended to. So I went to intervene. I tried to talk some sense into him. I even showed him where I'd mademy notes in his folder. But he was having none of it,he continued to shout and swear, so I walked away to finish offmy handover notes. I'd forgotten all about that patient
