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
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.
