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

Saxophone Lessons for Beginners Fingering for Beginning Saxophone Players

I am going to give you a brief fingering overviewof the saxophone. This is, again, kind of little posture lesson. Basically your handneeds to be positioned like mine is here (my left hand). I'm covering all three main pearlkeys on the front. On the back, you have to have your octave key covered. And in the side,you have to keep in mind you have these side keys, that are high notes. You want to beable to play these side keys with the inside of your hand. So it is important not haveyour hand all down on the sax like this. You want to have your hand out the front of thesax. The bottom hand is not so difficult. You just basically put the three keys here.You got your thumb through the thumb hook

to hold the weight of the saxophone and yourpinky goes on these side keys here (similar to left hand side keys). These down here,are played with the inside of your fingers; and in this case, at the bottom, with thefourth finger on this hand. O.k., a couple of good ways to practice good posture withyour hands: Imagine double side tape, taped to all of your keys. You can actually putdouble sided tape on your keys to keep your hands in place when you are practicing. Whenyou are going through scales or exercises or playing a tune, you don't want your handsjumping all over the place. You want to keep your fingers on the keys at all times. Thatway, you can come back and continue to play

notes without having to reposition your hand.It doesn't sound that important but if you're playing fast it really takes an extra secondto get your fingers back on, if you're off. By practicing from the beginning with goodtechnique like that, you're going to carry that throughout your playing career. So it'sreal important to keep your hands on the keys. Make sure you have good posture, just likeI am demonstrating here. And use that consistently in your practicing and you will be a goodplayer with good technique by the time you start getting your skill up.
