How To Sing Better For Guys Part 1
Is Everybody Readyé Well, Alright, then! Let'sGO!!!! Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah! How to Sing Better for Guys. Welcome to KenTamplin Vocal Academy, where we're going to be discussing How To Sing Better for Guys. Hi, Guys. Ken Tamplin from Ken Tamplin VocalAcademy, and I'm going to teach you a little bit about the voice and voice lessons today. This is Part One in a ThreePart series onHow to Sing Better for Guys. Now, there's a lot of different styles anda lot of different approaches to singing,
so that one subject isn't just how to singbetter for all guys, because it's how to sing better in whatever style you're looking tosing. Well, there are some very basic, nonnegotiables to singing, and I want to point out that mostof the time, not all of the time, but most of the time, guys want to sing harder thangirls. They want to get out there and just belt and wail. .and there's the other side, of R'n'B or Pop guys that are just looking to have somesoul, and some good licks, and some good tone, and good resonance, and stamina, andso forth, AND range, which we all want.
But I want to cover both aspects fairly briefly.I'm going to discuss Rock Singing first, and then I'm going to break into more Pop andR'n'B. So the very first thing is, is that we wantto have awesome posture. You want to sit up straight, or stand up straight, and by theway, when you sit, you lose up to 30% of your strength in your abdomen when you're singing,so I recommend you stand, if you can, but anyway, so you're going to want to stand,and you're going to want to take a breath from your belly, from your abdomen. Insteadof breathing like we do like this, from our chest, we want to breathe from our abdomen,from our belly, and our diaphragm. So you've
heard a lot about diaphragmatic support, soI'm not going to cover that here, I have some tutorials on my website regarding diaphragmaticsupport, and I have an amazing course called quot;How to Sing Better Than Anyone Elsequot;.So anyway, I want to talk about how to sing better for guys, so we're going to start firstwith this bright quot;PINGquot; in an quot;AHquot;vowel. quot;AH. AH.quot; I coined a phrase, it's called quot;IT'sthe LAH!!! AHHH!!quot; and it's that nice, Open Throat, Bright Ping Sound that keeps us fromsort of choking on our vowel sounds or pinching and squeezing as we go up.Now there's a lot to this but I'm going to just go through the basic elements of thisfirst, and then if you're interested, check out
my course, or check out my channel and I covera good amount of this stuff. So, we're going to start with the mean averageof singers, and that would be a baritone. And so we're going to start down in like amidbari or upper midbari range, and we're just going to go through a simple triad scalelike this: Lah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.And try to keep the jaw as stable as possible. Try not to move the mandible, or the jaw,keep it in the marble or static or stable position, we're going to continue up a triadscale, like this: Lah, ah, ah, AH, ah, ah, ahhh.Don't forget your breath. Take your breath,
and use your breath, bring in the breath,kind of like you're doing a situp, the feeling of how much strength is required when you'redoing a situp. So let's continue. , Lah, ah, ah, AH, ah, ah, ahhh.Take your breath. Relax the shoulders, relax the arms, relax the neck. let's continue:Nice, bright, Open AH. I don't mean quot;loh, oh, oh, ohhh. or luh, uh, uh, uhh. I meanquot;AHquot;. Lah, ah, ah, AH, ah, ah, ahhh. Do yourselfa favor. Even get out a handheld mirror and look at the back of your throat, and see ifyour throat is nice and wide open, and that your tongue is placed to the base of the jaw,so it's not causing any stricture, or any

How To Build Your Best VoiceWebinar 1 Whoo hoo! I'm so excited there are so manyof you all around the world. If you didn't know, I'm in Melbourne, Australia. I wantto welcome you into my studio here. Once again I just want to thank you all for joining meon this webinar today. Thank you so much for preordering my Build Your Best Voice program.I'm so ecstatic and more than excited that you've chosen to come along with me on thisjourney to build your best voice. 'Cause that's what this is about. Briefly, the programis a summary of my last 10 years of research into vocal training. That's basically whatit is. It involves 5 pretty hard core work
outs or modules. Here's what we're goingto cover today in webinar 1. This is what I hope to cover:(1)I hope to cover the main teaching points of workout 1and(2) I want to help you to apply an exercise to a song.(3)The very last part of the webinar today will be a Q A.So this is what weÃre going to do, we're going to get rid of tension first in our bodies,because tension absorbs your sound. First thing we're going to do is get rid of tensionin our shoulders and arms. From where you are standing, IÃd like you to do a littlebid of a backstroke action, as if you're
in a swimming pool. Together with me justdo some backstroke action. Now IÃm going to get you to do freestyle. You can see probablythat I'm not a swimmer =) but I do like to use it as part of my tension exercises.Now IÃd like you to just stand straight and roll your shoulders back 3 times. Then rollthem forward as well. Hopefully you're feeling a lot of the tension just dissipate out ofyour shoulders and arms. Now the next thing is our necks. We tend tocarry a lot of tension in our necks, so we're going to stretch that. What I want you todo is bend your head over to one side and just slightly press down with your hand. Withyour other hand, that is free, I want you
to bring it up and on the count of 3 weÃregoing to drop it as if it weighs one ton. 1, 2, 3 and drop!Hopefully that enabled you to have a greater stretch right there. Now what we are goingto do is get rid of tension in your lower back and your whole body. So what I want youto do is put your arms out like this (as if you're a human cross) then you're goingto spin around. I call this helicopter spins (for obvious reasons) =) You're going todo that and hopefully you're feeling this amazing stretch in your lower back. Oh manIÃm actually hearing myself crack! Alright, now just massage your face and yourjaw (kerri doing it) Be kind to yourself.
And using both of your thumbs just underneathyour chin and neck. You see, if you feel a sense of freedom inyour body, that is going to come out in your voice. That is the absolute truth. So itÃsvery very important to be loosening up and getting rid of that tension that just goingto absorb your sound. Now we're going to get into the actual vocalworkout. So the very first workout exercise is quot;The bubblesquot;. I want you to point yourfingers here (pointing beside the lips) just slightly press against your cheeks, just nextto your lips and roll your lips together like this (Kerri doing bubbles). The bubble isa foundational exercise to help you experience
what it feels like to sing in an effortless,floating free way. The next thing we're going into is your quot;Mmmquot;Building Resonance Placement Let's try that together (your favorite foodpotato chips, strawberries, grapes, yogurt, whatever it is, quot;Mmmquot; hopefully you're feelingsome sort of a buzzy vibration sensation in your mouth and maybe even in your nose area.What that buzz is, it's quot;resonancequot;. Now why is resonance importanté If we use ourresonance properly, that will carry our voices forward, without us straining our throat.Exercise: Mmm. The same thing happens when we get on to aMing Ming Ming exercise. This is developing
