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
Sight Singing Techniques How to Sight Sing Using Solfege
Hi, my name is Ashley on behalf of ExpertVillage and I'm going to talk to you today about sight singing. Using solfege when singingvarious intervals this is when it is a good idea to use solfege. Also when singing solfegeyou are actually replacing a letter name with the solfege. C with Do, D with Re, E Mi, FFa, G Sol, A La and B Ti, the first note of a major scale in this case the C scale isthe tonic. You will sing Do instead of C of the purpose of using solfege as a sight singingtechnique. Then instead of singing the next note D we will replace it with Re, up thescale now singing the solfege to syllables instead of the actual note names. C D E GH A B C, now I'm going to replace the actual
note names with the solfege syllables, DoRe Fa Sol La Ti Do. The reason to sing with syllables instead of the notes is to singcorrect intervals while reading in any key and not just in the key of C.
Learning to Sight Sing Lesson 1 Line Notes and Space Notes
SonicFit: learning how to sight read lesson one line notes and space notes There are many types of notes and they all have a note head. Placing the note head on a staff shows pitch. A note head with a line through it is called the line note. If the note head does not have a line through it's center, it is called a space note. A space note can have a line below it, above it, or both above and below it. There are steps to follow to identify if a note is a line note or a space note. These notes appear on a staff:
1) the first step is to identify the note head on the staff. 2) then asked does the note had have a line through its center in this case it does so it is a line note. another note:1) identify the note head, 2) ask if it has a line through its center. In this case it does not, so it is a space note. reviewing the steps:1) identify the note head 2) ask if there is a line through the center of it
If so it's a line note, if not it's a space note please identify the following space note line note line note space note The staff contains five lines. Between the five lines are four spaces,
and we can identify line notes or space notes by their line number or space number. when we get above the staff we just call it the space above the staff or the space below one ledger line below the staff as just a complicated example because, in fact, we don't really talk about numbers all that much at all. Identify the following as line or space, plus the number: This is a line note, and it is number 4. This is a space note and it doesn't have a number, it is just called the space below the staff.
One measure line above the staff, space 2. Working on the sonic fit exercise, it is asking you to first identify if the note is a line note or a space note. Since there's a line through the center of the note, you click the button line note and then count. Remember the line at the bottom is one so line 3. Next is a space note: count from below, it would be space number 1,2, . 3!
being deliberate about identifying the line number or space number really helps to drive home the concept of alternating between lines and spaces as you ascend up the staff. go to SonicFit to do this exercise and check out other lessons and exercises.
