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
Music Lesson Business Music Lesson Scheduling
In this clip on how to create your own musicteaching business I'm going to talk about how long your lessons should be. When I startedout I offered half hour, fortyfive minute, or hour lessons. This will work in most citiesin America, and be great. I actually noticed though, for New York City that when I hadhalf hour lessons, it personally wasn't worth it for me to if I was off doing an auditionto track back home because this is such a schlepping city, wasn't worth it for me totrack back home just for a half hour lesson if I was only making thirty dollars. So, youknow, you can try different things and be flexible, but you know, what I do now is Ionly offer hour lessons and it makes me happier.
So it's not about only giving what your clientswant but it's about what are you going to be happy with. I realized I'm not happy schleppingaround the city for a half hour lesson. For me it's not worth it unless I have an hourlesson. I state that to my clients sometimes they're disappointed but they very quicklyget over it and they very quickly see that I'm worth it. So think about the lesson timeand remember you're your own boss, and that's the great thing about creating your own musicteaching business.
Music Lesson Business Music Lesson Studio Space
In this clip on how to create your own musicteaching business, I'm going to talk about studio space. Where do you hold your lessons.If you're lucky enough you can hold them at home and then you save the cost of rentinga studio. In order to have it at home, you have to start thinking about your home asa professional space. You've got to keep it clean. You've got to think, is this spaceexude a kind of professionalism that I want to emulate to my students. If you don't presentyourself as professional to your students, I mean you're not going to feel good takingtheir money. It's, you know, you have to feel professional. Keep it clean, keep it nice.And it's really nice if you have a waiting
area. I personally don't have a waiting area,but it's nice if you have a living room, a separate room that's a waiting area. If youdon't have your own home space, or you don't feel comfortable for whatever reason havingstudents come in, that's fine. You can rent space in almost every city. There's professionalmusic rental studios. And you can just search for them on line. In New York City there'sChelsea Studios, Nola Studios, Michael Carson Studios. So many places that rent for as littleas ten dollars an hour with a piano. So you can just, you know, factor that in to thecost of your lessons or have your students pay for it. Space is really important. Haveit be professional.
