How to sing like a Pro. Hey guys, my name is Ken Tamplin, and welcometo Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy, where the proof is in the singing. Now, in order for me to be able to teach youhow to sing like a Pro, I'd better have achieved professional status myself, and Ialso better show you that I have students that have gone from amateur status to professionalstatus. Now let's be clear on something. Most professionals themselves don't singwell from a technical standpoint.
So just to sing like a Pro doesn't meanyour singing properly or great, but I have to point out that no matter where you getyour information, think about this: the person giving that information, have they achieveda high level of professional statusé And do they demonstrate students that haveprofessional statusé We have over 300 tutorials on my channel, withthe plethora, which means a lot, of students on my channel, many of which have achievedawesome professional status. Now just quickly go to Sara Loera, check outGabriela Guncikova, 10 second songs' Anthony Vincent, Mark Hudson from Dragon Force, Icould go on and on and on with a lot of the
students that have applied my course and achievedprofessional status. Now what does it mean to become professionaland how do we do ité Well it has to do with strength training andthe way we think about the voice and the way we strength train in order to build enoughprofessionalâ€“ism in what it is that we're doing to be able to sing strong with confidencenight after night with consistency. So I have a singing course called How To SingBetter Than Anyone Else, you can check it out on Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy dot com,and I walk you through, stepbystep what it's going to take to help you become aprofessional singer.
Now, to be a professional singer, there'slots involved in this and it's not just only the physical or musical side, there'sa psychological side to this, but I want to show you a few things that you can do thatwill be really, really awesome. Okayé We're just going to run through a coupleof warmup exercises that will help you understand how to clean up the voice. Now, check out my tutorial on diaphragmatic support,check out my tutorial on open throat technique, it's the precursor of what you're goingto need to do, what we are about to do here
at this level. We're going to sing an AA vowel, and theAA vowel scale is going to go like this. Layâ€¦ Ahhhâ€¦ So AA and Ah, and we're going to actuallyslowly go through this to start to strength train the voice, here we go. Ladies, you'll do this up the octaveâ€¦ Layâ€¦
Ahâ€¦ Do this with us in octavesâ€¦ Layâ€¦ Ahâ€¦ Now, going between vowels, AA and Ah helpresiliency and the ability to relax the cords and to, with freedom, be able to go up anddown a scale without feeling tension in the throat, because we want to build strengthfor the sound. Layâ€¦
Kingston Stories Jake Abrams Stefanie Nieuwenhuyse Hampton Court Palace on Kingston University
I've been lucky enough to work in a varietyof different places, universities, the health service, in the UK, in the developing world,in war zones and the one thing thatÃs always struck me is how learning, how education changespeoples lives. The profiles that youÃre about to see show how Kingston University does thatfor people, it changes lives, it develops people, it gives them opportunities that theymight never have had before. YouÃll meet some interesting people whoÃve done somefantastic things that we are really proud of. Our new strategy is designed to make surethat Kingston stays as a university that does that but does it even better, that we continueto be a place where people can come to, to
gain the skills, to gain the confidence, tomake the friends that means that they change their lives and continue to change the livesof those about them. I work as a freelance illustrator; I enjoyhaving a dig politically. I work for The Independent, The Spectator, The Guardian, The Observer,The Times, I work three days a week at the university and the, the other seven at homein my studio. TeachingÃs great and itÃs a great foil to my practice as an illustrator,I think IÃd go spare if I was in my studio alone all the time. So hereÃs Boris. He was such a pleasure todraw because heÃs such a vile character and
thatÃs when IÃm at my happiest. I think all my colleagues do this sort ofdelicate balance between their own practice as artists and designers and themselves asteachers. ThatÃs a really important balance because it means that we have currency asteachers. I think the students really want to know whatweÃre doing as professionals in the industry, they hear us talking about the studentÃsideas at the time but they wanna see what weÃre doing. TheyÃre also interested insome of the nitty gritty about how IÃm published, how I sell myself as, as a designer illustrator.
Jake talks to the students about some technicalaspects of his illustration and shows some other examples of his work KingstonÃs got a really famous art and designschool, itÃs thought of as really one of the better ones. Within it there are somesubjects that stand out and illustration and animation is one of those. I have really smart,interesting students and they keep me young. The group that I was talking to were all illustrationstudents and they are very, very ambitious, they know that that is what they want to doin life and thatÃs what theyÃve always and thatÃs what theyÃve always wanted to doactually.
The student talks through his illustrationwith Jake So we sort of set a brief to create storiesthat have the potential to be published, they had to really think about the markets theyÃreaiming at and theyÃll show us sketchbooks, notepads brimmed full of usually some greatideas and weÃll help them sift through those and we will submit those to publishers andweÃve had lots of success with doing that in the past. Jake gives advice to the student Last year we were working with Salman Rushdie,I initiated collaboration with his publisher
and the students started to work with animationsand illustrations on his new childrenÃs book. It was great, it really focused their learningand they got a foot in the door. Now that is fantastic for their portfolio and it willmake a difference in them getting work in the future. The BA honours illustration and animatorsall get an opportunity to do life classes at Kingston and it really, really can makea difference with their creative work. Jake advices the students on the directionthey may wish to take I love teaching life drawing, I do very informalclasses where IÃm trying to bridge the gap
