How to sing like a Pro. Hey guys, my name is Ken Tamplin, and welcometo Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy, where the proof is in the singing. 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. So I have a singing course called How To SingBetter Than Anyone Else, you can check it out on Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy dot com,and I walk you through, stepbystep what it's going to take to help you become aprofessional singer.
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
at this level. We're going to sing an AA vowel, and theAA vowel scale is going to go like this. Layâ€¦ Ahhhâ€¦ So AA and Ah, and we're going to actuallyslowly go through this to start to strength train the voice, here we go. Ladies, you'll do this up the octaveâ€¦ Layâ€¦
Ahâ€¦ Do this with us in octavesâ€¦ Layâ€¦ Ahâ€¦ Now, going between vowels, AA and Ah helpresiliency and the ability to relax the cords and to, with freedom, be able to go up anddown a scale without feeling tension in the throat, because we want to build strengthfor the sound. Layâ€¦
Sing Harmony With Yourself 2014
This is Home Brew Audio's tutorial on SingingHarmony with Yourself, a companion tutorial to Lesson Five: Multitrack recording. We'lluse what we learned in Lesson Five and apply it to music. I'm not going to rehash all theâ€œhow to'sâ€� from the Lesson Five tutorial. So, if you get lost here, you should probablygo back and review that. We're going to record, using AUDACITY, a verybrief singing demo to show you how you can do what I think is the coolest thing EVER.sing harmony with yourself! This idea is what got me into recording 30 years ago. If youaren't a singer or if you have no clue to what I'm talking about, that's okay. Thisshould still be fascinating stuff.
We're going to keep this really short andsimple. We'll just do three quick tracks of â€œahâ€�. Think of â€œTwist and Shoutâ€�by the Beatles. We need to give ourselves a â€œcountinâ€� on the first track so weknow when to start the harmony parts on tracks two and three. Once we start singing, we'regonna hold that for a count of eight. You're going tocount one, two, three, four, start your note â€œahhhhhhhâ€� and hold it for eight counts.If that totally confused you just watch what I do here and it should become clear. One, two, three, four. â€œahhhhhhhhhhhâ€� Now, let's record track two listening to thefour counts in track one as a count in. Start
singing at the same time but a â€œthirdâ€�up. What I mean by that is if you sang â€œahhhhhâ€� the first time, sing â€œahhhhhâ€� the secondtime. And you can, by the way, sing this in whatever key you want to.One, two, three, four. â€œahhhhhhhhhhhhhâ€� OK, now let's zoom in so that we can linethese up â€“ if they didn't come out quite sync'd up. Change the cursor.line thatup a little bit better. Ok, zoom out. You starting to get the ideaé Alright, let'sdo the same thing for track three. We are going to do that a â€œthirdâ€� up from tracktwo. So instead of â€œahhhâ€� â€“ we went â€œahhâ€� â€“ â€œahhâ€�,and now it's time to do â€œahhâ€�
Alrighté Ya readyéOne, two, three, four. â€œahhhhhhhhhhhhhâ€� Now let's listen to what we've got. 1234â€œahhhhhhhhhhhhhâ€� OK, now let's sync this up a little bitâ€“ the same way we did before. Make sure it starts about the same time. There we go.Now, let's make it even better. Doing the same thing we did in Lesson Five, let's leavetrack one â€œpannedâ€� at the center. Come down to track two, slide the slider to theleft until you get to 50%. On track three slide the slider to the right until you getto 50%. And listen again. 1234â€œahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhquot;
Is that not just theclosest thing to magic that you've ever heardé That is the power of stereo and multitrackrecording at its most basic and most fascinating. Feel free to try this with fourpart harmony,fivepart harmony, whatever you want to do. Pan it even further all the way to the left and right. Check out the other companion tutorials tomultitrack recording where we'll build on this knowledge and do some other really coolstuff. See you then!.
