Now, in order for me to be able to teach youhow to sing like a Pro, I'd better have achieved professional status myself, and Ialso better show you that I have students that have gone from amateur status to professionalstatus. Now let's be clear on something. Most professionals themselves don't singwell from a technical standpoint.
So just to sing like a Pro doesn't meanyour singing properly or great, but I have to point out that no matter where you getyour information, think about this: the person giving that information, have they achieveda high level of professional statusé And do they demonstrate students that haveprofessional statusé We have over 300 tutorials on my channel, withthe plethora, which means a lot, of students on my channel, many of which have achievedawesome professional status. Now just quickly go to Sara Loera, check outGabriela Guncikova, 10 second songs' Anthony Vincent, Mark Hudson from Dragon Force, Icould go on and on and on with a lot of the
students that have applied my course and achievedprofessional status. Now what does it mean to become professionaland how do we do ité Well it has to do with strength training andthe way we think about the voice and the way we strength train in order to build enoughprofessionalâ€“ism in what it is that we're doing to be able to sing strong with confidencenight after night with consistency.

Now, to be a professional singer, there'slots involved in this and it's not just only the physical or musical side, there'sa psychological side to this, but I want to show you a few things that you can do thatwill be really, really awesome. Okayé We're just going to run through a coupleof warmup exercises that will help you understand how to clean up the voice. Now, check out my tutorial on diaphragmatic support,check out my tutorial on open throat technique, it's the precursor of what you're goingto need to do, what we are about to do here
