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
Peru Climate NASA DEVELOP Fall 2015 Langley Research Center
gt;gt;Rebekke: The Parque de la Papa, or PotatoPark, is located in South Central Peru just north of the city of Cusco, in the heart ofthe Cordillera Oriental mountain chain and is home to over 6000 inhabitants. gt;gt;Kayla: The Parque de la Papa hosts 6 communitiesthat span a total of 8661 hectares. gt;gt;Ryan: The park is also home to a large potatoseed bank, known as a Noahs Ark containing over 788 varieties of potato. gt;gt;Michael: Shifting climates around the worldare affecting agriculture. Locations that were once suitable for certain crops are nolonger viable, thus forcing farmers to relocate
and change their growing practices. gt;gt;Richard: Variable conditions have alreadycaused harvesting in the area to move from 3800 meters to 4000 meters. gt;gt;Ryan: Residents of Parque de la Papa arefinding it increasingly difficult to adapt to these changes while still preserving thetraditional farming practices of their ancestors. gt;gt;Rebekke: To give a better estimate of whenthese changes started to occur, our team used GIS in conjunction with Earth observationsto create factors for suitability maps. The NASA satellites used include TRMM, Landsat4, 5, 7, 8, Aqua MODIS, and SRTM.
gt;gt;Kayla: The TRMM dataset, which estimatesdaily rainfall totals was downloaded and processed using Python to extract all daily data from1998 to 2015. Each day was then averaged over the 17 year span, resulting in a precipitationclimatology. gt;gt;Ryan: Aqua MODIS daily land surface temperatureobservations from 2002 to 2015 were used to create a timeseries of average daytime andnighttime temperatures. gt;gt;Michael: Landsat images were used to assessland cover change. Due to the park's small size and even smaller potato fields, onlyareas with mixed agriculture were identified. gt;gt;Kayla: Results from MODIS temperature analysisaligned well with expected temperature ranges
necessary for potato production. Growing degreedays, a measurement of daily heat accumulation, are a common index used to assess conditionsthat are suitable for crop development. Accumulated growing degree days over the potato croppingperiod show that higher elevations within the park accumulate less growing degree days,leading to a shorter growing season. gt;gt;Ryan: TRMM precipitation accumulation analysisshowed that approximately 75 percent of yearly precipitation occurs during the growing season.Additionally, seasonal precipitation averages exceeded ideal conditions for potato production. gt;gt;Michael: Landsat land cover imagery wasused to show the change in agriculture from
1990 to 2007. Results support observationsthat agriculture has shifted over 200 meters higher in elevation. gt;gt;Rebekke: These results will provide a basisfor the creation of potato suitability maps that will allow our partners at the InternationalPotato Center to provide recommendations to local farmers who rely on potatoes for theirlivelihoods and the preservation of their culture.
