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

Teacher Interview Answering Tough Questions
Hey this is Betsy from Classroom Caboodle And today I'm going to share with you how to answer the the tough questions in a job interview. Alright so today we're talking about how to answer the tough questions in really any job interview. And the two biggest things I can tell ya are be prepared and practice, practice, practice. And I mean practice out loud to yourself, in front of a mirror or with trusted friends or family. There are really two tough questions that you're gonna get in a job interview and the first one is almost in every job interview but doesn't really count, it's not on the score sheet for example if you are interviewing for a school district
and that one is quot;tell us about yourselfquot;. It's such a generic, open ended question but this is one you can nail. And I'm gonna give you some tips on how to do that. When they say quot;tell us about yourselfquot; this is your opportunity to make a great first impression and show how focused you are and how much you know about the job you are interviewing for. Once they say quot;hey, well y'know why don't you just tell us about yourselfquot; this is not an quot;oh, I love catsquot; kind of question. They don't really want to know that. This is your opportunity to talk about why you're qualified for this job.
Everything you say should be tied, like if this is for a teaching position, should be tied to the classroom and the job you want to have. So, for example, when I say quot;be preparedquot; have on a notecard the things you want to highlight when you answer that question. Because you will be asked that question. You want to stick to 5 minutes at the very most. But you want to hit some highlights and let me tell you what those important things are. First of all, for a teaching job you want to say where you got your degree andor your certificate. For example I would tell them that I got my undergraduate degree in human development and family studies at Kansas State
and went on to get my Masters in Education and Certificate from a local state college. I'm keeping it short, I don't have to go into great detail about my degree, why I got it or y'know how great the college was. So you need to talk bout your college and where you got your certificate. You briefly want to talk about your teaching experience. So if you are a very experienced teacher who's had many different teaching jobs you're gonna summarize. Here's the grade levels I've taught, these were my experiences, this is what I really liked about it. You don't need to go through the list of every teaching job you've had.
Just keep it short and simple. If you don't have a lot of teaching experience or if you've just finished your student teaching you're gonna tell the interview committee about your student teaching, other grade levels that you might have observed and any other experience you've had working with children. Again, keep it short and simple. You'll also want to show the interview committee that once you have your certificate you're not done learning. So you'll want to highlight a few of the professional development opportunities that you have sought out and how you applied them in your teaching experience.
and again, just choose a couple of important ones. If you do your research on that school before hand you'll know what professional development opportunities you're gonna want to highlight because schools every year will put on their websites about what their focus is. Y'know if they're really focused on STEM or reading comprehension or reading workshop you'll know to highlight those types of things in your professional development experiences that you're gonna share. You also want to share just a teeny, tiny little something that's personal about you to show that you're really human but again you're going to tie it to the job you want to have. So for example you could say y'know personally I really, really love traveling.
