Learn To Sing Easy Tips To Learn How To Sing
Hi. Aaron here from HowtoSing and I wantto talk to you today about learning to sing. What is it to learn to singé What are thefactors of learning to singé First thing is, Can anyone learn to singé That's a questionthat many people have. Maybe you yourself have. You kind of wonder, 'Do I have whatit takesé Do I have enough talenté Maybe you don't feel like you're super talentedor you weren't born with a ton of talent. You can kind of sing but you're just not reallysure if you can actually do it on a professional level or whatever. You're just not sure ifyou can even learn to sing. Let me just say this, that I believe anybodycan learn to sing because learning to sing
is two main factors. There's kind of a learningpart, the knowledge part, the more cognitive part I guess and then there's the exercise,kind of the more practical, the handson part. So the exercises, the vocal exercises, thewarmups and the strengthening exercises and then the knowledge is like the tips and tricksand all the stuff that you kind of have to know about the voice that will help you singbetter faster. The cool thing about the knowledge part, you think, 'Well, let's just do theexercises and get to developing the voice. That is awesome and that's a really, reallybig factor of singing because the knowledge part in some ways helps you learn to singbetter faster because certain tips and tricks
if you just do, you can know it, apply itimmediately and be singing better. One is if you know what's good posture, youwill have better breath support and better control of your singing. You will immediatelysing better just for having better posture or if you know your tongue is supposed torest on the back of your teeth during all vowels, you're going to have better tone immediately.All you have to do is remember it, apply it and you will be a better singer already. Butfor sure, the exercises to develop your voice just like any other muscle in the body needsto be toned and developed in order to perform at its peak level. The voice is made up ofmuscle, many muscles. Cartilages as well but
many muscles and that as you build those up,you get better coordination, better control and ultimately become a better singer. Sothose are the main two factors on learning to sing. I do want to give you â€“ I will give youtwo quick exercises pretty similar but just talk for a second about that. But before Ido, let me just say that as far as learning how to sing and if you want to seriously learnhow to sing, my recommendation is to take an online singing lesson program that is likea complete systematic kind of step by step program and you can go to my site at HowtoSing .I've actually got a ton of other tips and
tricks and have a tutorial up there of how tosing higher with less strain in your voice also but I also tell you what my favoriteonline singing lesson program is and you can check that out. Real quick before you go, let me just giveyou a singing exercise too. It's the same exercise but two different vowels. The firstis the E vowel. The E vowel is a narrow vowel which basically means it's going to be easierto get into your different ranges with a narrow vowel. With an open vowel, it's harder toget into your higher ranges without going into falsetto or into like an airy kind ofvoice.
So you start off with the E and with the E,this narrow vowel, I want you to go vocalizes and take that first note up vocalizes. Takeit up again vocalizes. So basically just start where you're comfortable kind of inthe middle. Take it up to what I just would say as like a one, two, three, two, one andthen keep climbing and keep climbing and keep climbing and that E will actually help youget up into your head voice and to your higher range without your voice cracking or breaking. Now once you get the E down, you can do eitherâ€“ you can do an 'ah, an 'ih or an 'eh â€“ 'ih or and 'ah. The 'ih is just a little lessnarrow and the 'ah is a little less narrow
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.
