How To Sing Better Tips To Learn How To Sing Better Today
How to Sing Hi. My name is Aaron from Superior SingingMethod and in this tutorial, I want to talk about how to sing. OK. How to sing, kind of a broad topic butI'm going to narrow it down. At the end of this, I want to give you a really good exercise,one of my favorite exercises that will get you a little farther down the road of actuallyhow to sing. But let's talk for a minute about how to sing. What does that even mean to learnhow to sing and sing betteré I break it down into sometimes three, sometimes four differentcategories but I will give you four right
now. Learning how to sing is learning the instructionpart. So right now, this is part of the instruction. I'm going to give you that vocal exercisebut just to give you a little bit of instruction about the voice and how it works and how singingworks because the more you know about the voice and how the voice works when it comesto singing, the more you can apply these techniques and concepts to singing and to the exercisethemselves to start shaping your voice the way you want it to be so you have the besttone, the most resonant, full kind of sound. You can hit the high notes, all that kindof stuff.
So instruction is the first part. The secondpart is then I guess kind of obvious is the exercises. You got to have the exercises becausethe exercises are just like the rest of your body. You need to work out, exercise to keepin shape and to be able to make your body do the things that you want it to be ableto do to have the flexibility and the strength to do what you want to do. Third one is systematic. Learning singingsystematically is really the way to go. The link below is I have an eightweek systematicprogram that you can check out at some point but I believe that systematic is the way togo because you learn the right thing at the
right time and you're not only systematicallydoing the exercises but you're also learning the things in the right order and doing thingsin the right amount of time and repeating there's a lot of repetition which leads meto the next one and that's just being consistent. Use the repetition to consistently build andbuild and build your voice. So those are kind of the four main thingsand just along the lines of that last one, the repetition is I know that's kind of thedifficult part, righté I think we live in a culture that we don't want to do thingsover and over and we don't want to like work really hard to get to things and I get thatand with these tutorials, my point and my goal
is get you singing as good as you could possiblysing as fast as possible for sure but it does take repetition and it takes time. As youdo the exercises, this one that I'm about to give you and other exercises of courseyou need a variety of exercises but this is a really good one. It's not just going to take once and you'regoing to sing better. You know that. Intuitively, you know you're not just going to get betterby, Oh, do this exercise for 10 minutes and I can sing better. But if you do it this consistentlyfor two or three days, a week, two weeks, those kinds of things, you will start it'snot like all of a sudden you will be like
the greatest thing in the world but you willnotice a marked improvement in your voice. You will see improvement and that will encourageyou to be more consistent and get more instructions. Do more exercises. Do the systematic thingand the consistency and repetition. So what I want to talk to you about today,the instructional part, and this is all instruction but the instruction part of the actual voiceand how it works. What I want to talk about is the larynx. This is one of the problemsthat most singers have is that when they go to sing high notes, what they're doing isthey're raising their larynx up. Maybe you do this as well. When I'm not paying attentionand I'm singing, sometimes I still even do
Honoring UKs Great Teachers
Huge honor, because students who had nominatedme were there, and seeing them and realizing what they had done to make the nominationjust felt really humbling. I think when the students look at the way I teach, I wouldhope they would see the enthusiasm that comes from me being excited about what I like todo. You know, I'm always trying to take a risk in the classroom by doing somethingto do, stretching, and that makes it exciting. The reason that I love being in the classroombecause that's the point where the change happens directly from what I'm doing. Ihave a chance to help them learn, to see something new, and I love that.I think the recognition is really important
because it shows what we value. We need tobe able to say to our students, to our community, to the parents of our students, that thisenterprise values teaching at the highest level. It's really kind of amazing to realizethat my instinct at prioritizing that first, and the hard work has come to the point thatthere is some recognition for that. It is such a huge honor to have received thisaward, I am absolutely thrilled. Teaching is one of the things I love most about myjob and to be recognized in it makes me really happy. The most rewarding part about beinga teacher is watching students improve. Seeing a student's paper come in at the end ofthe semester, and having it really be smart
and clear, and you think back to where thatstudent was at the beginning of the semester â€“ that is exciting. So the fact that thisaward was awarded based on what my students have said about my class really means a lot.I would like to thank the alumni association for recognizing teaching as something thatis really important. It's really incredible and very touching. To be honored, especially a universitywideaward like this, it's very humbling, I was positively influenced by several really goodprofessors during my life, and so, it made a great deal that it was nominated by students.The students are paying a quite a bit of money
to learn. It's not fair to them for me togo in one day and sort of be like, â€œWell, I'm having an off day and I'm going totake it easy.â€� No, I need to go and be engaged. They feed off of the professor. If you startoff in a class, and the professor is late, if the professor is not prepared, well, thenthe students are not going to be prepared. It's not fair for me to expect them to putin the work if I am not willing to do the same. I am very happy that the alumni associationis doing this â€“ to recognize those efforts. I am honored and humbled to receive it. In ever expected to win something like this. It's hard for me to express what it meansto me, but it means a great deal.
To be even nominated for an award was, youknow, awesome, and to actually win on top of that was just extra. It's really thestudents that motivate me. You know, they look towards me to help them. It feels goodto be counted on. You know, I try to be quick to reply and help students when they needit, and I usually give them my number and my email and they know they can text me anytime. I think the alumni association giving any type of award really does motivate youto come back the next day and know that you are appreciated that people do notice whatyou are trying to do. I looked at the website after I won the award and I realized whatan elite group of people have received this
award and its not a lot of people either sothat just makes it even more prestigious to me. It inspires myself and the people aroundme to continue to improve on teaching and improve on mentorship and know that thereare people noticing what we do. It means a lot, it means a lot in terms of.I love my students â€“ a lot. I always try to teach them imagination. If you rememberalbert Einstein, he said, â€œImagination is more important than knowledge.â€� And thatshould be our goal, not just toward our diploma, but teach the student how to use imagination,how to be creative, how to be entrepreneurial. They're fantastic people, they are giftedyoung individuals. And, I think about them
