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
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 For Beginners The 5 Laws Of Singing Learn Singing with Ken Tamplin
Hey, Guys! Ken Tamplin from Ken Tamplin VocalAcademy and I'm here to talk about the Five Laws of Great Singing.First: SUPPORT. What is thaté Everyone talks about support. â€œDiaphragmatic Supportâ€�.It's actually your whole abdominal cavity, not just the diaphragm, and it's when wetake a breath, we take a breath like this: Our stomach, when we take a breath in goes(stomach comes out). When we breathe out, we push down, kind of like we're going tothe bathroom. . or doing a situp. Let's do it againâ€¦ inâ€¦ outâ€¦ and we push down.And we use this as the engine that drives our â€œcarâ€�. It's the most important part, which is Diaphragmatic Support, or Abdominal
Support. Second: Vowel Placement. The ONLY sound thatTruly Grows the Voice is a Bright Ping, or a Bright Timbral Sound. It's not â€œhuuuuuh,huuuuuhâ€� or a froggy sound. It's a real bright AH! It's the LAH!! AH!!! Like the wants to see your tonsils in the back of your throat. So the throat should be OPEN.It's called Open Throat Technique. And the tongue should be completely flat to the baseof the jaw, to keep any stricture away from the back of the throat, like this. â€œLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!â€�So that you can tell â€œLAAAAAAAH!â€� that it's completely open, it's very bright,and that brightness, or that PING is truly
the only real sound that grows the voice.Third: Air Management or Breath Management, Breath Control. I'm not going: â€œHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!â€�and killing you with sound. I'm controlling my air, I'm using my diaphragm to do allmy work, it's the engine that drives my car, and I'm holding back my air and lettingresonance take over because my wellplaced vowel sound of â€œAHâ€� the way I just didit, â€œLAAAAAH!â€� is able to resonate and relax into the sound.Fourth: Stress Management or Stress Relief. I didn't go â€œLAAAAAH!â€� I don'tfreak out and actually close down on my body and tense up. What I do is I relax to thesound. â€œLAAAAAH!â€� I relax to the sound
so that I can use my diaphragm to do all mywork for me. It's my muscle, the engine that drives my car, that relaxes this openthroat technique. Finally, Fifth: The Psychology of Singing.If you freak out, and you worry about the high note, because you don't know how toget there. It has to do with the way you relax and think about the notes themselves, in orderto be able to get into good vowel placement, and understanding how to build chest, headvoice, and a mixed voice inbetween, to get you through the passagio, which is the passageway,from â€œLAAAAAAAAAAHâ€� to get through that passageway to provide you the ability to singseamlessly, endtoend, with a lot of notes
that you can control if you apply these factors.Thank you for joining me.
