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
Singing Lessons Singing Lessons For Beginners
Hi. I'm Aaron from HowtoSing and I wantto talk for a minute about singing lessons. Singing lessons, kind of a broad topic butI actually want to cover three main questions when it comes to singing lessons. First one is, Do you have what it takesé Thesecond one is, Do you really need singing lessons to improveé The third one is, What'syour next stepé Then I want to give you an idea of kind of where to go to find good singinglesson programs and all that. Do you have what it takesé What I find withthe people I encounter, people I've encountered with lessons and the singing and want to singand all that, that you're your own worst critic.
So if you think that you can't sing or youjust feel like you weren't born with a ton of talent, I want to say that with the righttips and just getting started learning, a lot of people kind of just come out of theirshell and they really bud and become good singers. So don't let the demons, your own demons thatyou battle with, your insecurity let you think that you will not be able to sing, that youdon't have what it takes. The fact is, with the right instruction, anybody can learn tosing. That's a question that comes up all the time. Can I learn to singé Yes, you canlearn how to sing. I will get more into that
in this next question and the next questionwe will tackle is, Do you need singing lessons to improveé I think one of the problems is that we seeour favorite singers. They step on stage or we listen to their CDs or whatever and wedon't ever actually see them doing the vocal exercises, doing the vocal training, doingall the learning. So we just kind of assume that they didn't have to. They just woke upor they were born and then they just stepped on stage and they have these beautiful voices.They could just do that but that's just it's just not the way it is.
Your favorite singer, I guarantee whoeverit is, had vocal training. They did vocal exercises. That day you saw them, they probablydid a 30 or 45minute regimen of vocal exercises and do it daily. The fact is, vocal exercisesare really important. I know this is more about singing lessons but with singing lessons,what happens is you get all the things you need. Basically to learn how to sing is twobasic categories. There's a bunch of learning stuff about the voice, how it works, a lotof just tips and tricks that just help you, like having your tongue where is your tonguesupposed to be when you singé I don't know. Well your tongue is supposed to be restedup against those teeth for all the vowels
that you sing. So it's kind of where like, Hey, when yousay, Hey, where your tongue goes there. That's where it's supposed to be for all the vowelsounds and a lot of the consonant sounds and when you do a consonant sound, you want togo right back down there. So it's just little things like that that will affect your singingin a big way but you won't learn unless you take some type of singing lessons. So there'stons of stuff like that and the second part is what I was saying, the exercise part. Anybody can learn to sing because of vocaltechnique anybody can learn and singing exercises
everybody can do. You got to know the rightsinging exercises and all that. You got to learn how to preserve your voice. There'sjust a bunch of stuff that you can learn with singing lessons. So I think it's really important.I think that if you're really serious about wanting to sing which is the next one, whatis your next stepé The next step is kind of a personal inventory. Are you ready to dowhat it takes to become a singeré It does take time and effort. The voice is somethingthat people want to expand their range and sing high notes and do all this stuff andthat's fantastic. It's absolutely possible but it does take time. It does take effort.
