How To Sing Good 3 Easy Tips For How To Sing Good

Hi there. Aaron here from Superior SingingMethod and in this tutorial, I want to talk about how to sing good. OK. How to sing good. The ironic thing aboutthe statement how to sing good is it is bad grammar. So let me just get that out of theway first. How to sing well, yeah, that's better grammar. So this is not a grammar lesson.This is actually a singing lesson so let's jump into that. How to sing well, how to sing good. Firstof all, at the end of this, I want to give you a good vocal exercise that will help youto be able to sing well and it's one of my

favorite ones. It's a good warmup exercisethat will kind of get you going in the morning as well. It's the only one you do. It's agood one to start with. So how do you sing wellé What are the different things that ittakes to learn how to do thaté First of all, understanding the voice. Thereare two probably yeah, three main things I think. It's like understanding the voice,learning proper technique and doing vocal exercise. So last one I'm going to give youis that vocal exercise. So understanding the voice, what does that meané Things like nasality. A lot of people whenthey sing, they sing and it just sounds kind

of like this. It sounds nasally and nasallydoesn't come across. It doesn't sound very good and nobody really wants to hear a nasallysinger. So understanding the voices, understandinghow to for example, it would be how to get rid of the nasality in your voice and it couldbe a lot of things but mostly it's probably the soft palate and I won't go too much intoit now. But soft palate is just beyond the hard palate which is the roof of your mouth.Soft is set behind there and usually nasally means soft palate is down too low. So understanding the voice, understandingthat the voice is a delicate instrument, understanding

that when you yell and you're like tryingto belt a note, like that, that puts a lot of strain on your voice and doesn't soundgood with tone but it also can hurt your voice. So just understanding those there is a lotof things to understand about the voice. These are just a couple of examples. The second thing is learning proper technique.Proper technique is things like learning how to breathe from your diaphragm. Breathingfrom your diaphragm is taking a just to give you a little, tiny glimpse of what it is,it's basically having proper posture, taking that complete breath and allowing your diaphragmto descend, creating space for your lungs

to be able to expand and your stomach cavityand as you sing, the tendency is to let your chest kind of collapse, to fall like that.But instead of doing that, keeping your chest nice and high, like kind of just like I amnow, not super high. Those are some of the basics of learning howto diaphragm breathe. So that's learning the proper techniques and there are a lot of techniquesof learning how to sing but that was just one example. So it's understanding the voice, learningproper technique and then doing vocal warmups. Vocal warmups are important because yourvoice is made of muscle and cartilage and

you need to build up those muscles to be ableto manipulate the notes the way you want to and to be able to sing all the things youneed to sing and know what your voice is going to do when. You need to strengthen those musclesso that they respond the way that you want them to respond when you're singing, rightéRight. So let's get to the voice exercise. This isa good one. It's one of my favorites as like a morning exercise. It's going to be Zs, Zs,We're going to do Zs on just basically five notes descending. So it's going to be vocalexercise. I started a little low. I will start a little higher. vocal exercise Dothat with me. vocal exercise And then you

And then findsome space. That's the goal of today, is to find, create space in the body. So just situp nice and tall here, you can close your

eyes, take a moment to just trust yourselfnot looking at the tutorial as we sit up nice and tall. And take a nice breath in and finda nice long exhale out. Again, trust yourself here. You can closeyour eyes and just listen to the sound of my voice here as we sit up nice and tall,lengthening through the crown. Grounding down through the sit bones, softening or relaxingthe jaw here.

Yoga For Complete Beginners 20 Minute Home Yoga Workout

Hey everyone. Welcome to Yoga with Adriene.I am Adriene, and I am superexcited because today we have a sequence for the completebeginner. If you're new to yoga or you've been curious about yoga practice and all itswonderful beautiful benefits, this is a great sequence for you. You don'tneed any blocks, you don't need any blankets; all you need is your body and an open mind.If you have a mat that's great, but otherwise, open mind, open heart. Let's get started. OK, my friends and my new friends, we're goingto begin in a crosslegged position we call this Sukhasana, or the easy pose, the poseof ease. Take a second here to check in with

the breath by maybe looping the shouldersa couple times forward, up, and back. Inhale looping forward, exhalegrounding down and back. Just finding a little organic movement, and then maybe checkingin with the neck by maybe just moving one ear over one shoulder. Then we'll go forwardinto chest, shaking the head, yes and no. Coming back to center, we'll bring the headover the heart, the heart over the pelvis. Take a second to maybe close your eyes orsoften the gaze so you can maybe go inward a little bit as we find alignment; head overheart, heart over pelvis. We life the sternum, lift the chest, and then again,ground down through the elbows on the exhale.

Find a nice space between the ears and theshoulders. We just come into the moment with a little integrity, whatever that means toyou. For me, it means body awareness, mind awareness, noticing where my thoughts are,and coming back to that body awareness. See if you can begin to deepenyour breath; nice, long inhale in and a nice, long, juicy exhale out. Keep that going; nice,long inhalation and a nice, long, extended exhale out. Draw your palms together at the heart, takea deep breath in. Each time we come here, this is a great little beginners' tip: Eachtime we come to this mudra, we call it Anjali

Mudra, you can think about lifting your sternumor your heart up to your chest. Often when we get a little bit tired, and wewill in our practice, we can have this little reminder to loop the shoulders and lift thesternum to the thumbs each time we come to this handsattheheart or this prayer position,Anjali Mudra. Practice that now. Inhale, lift your sternum up to your thumbs, draw yourlower belly or your navel in to meet your spine. Again, we're just coming into thisactive body but with this sense of ease. This isgoing to be a wonderful tool for beginning a yoga practice; just finding the balancebetween active body, strength, engaging qualities,

and then also a softness, an ease, a lightness,a calmness, if you will. Finding a place where those two can dance and be together is whatour yoga is all about. Interlace the fingertips, follow your breath.As you inhale, press the palms forward, up, and back. Nice and easy as we climb up theside body, climb up the spine. On your next exhale, release the fingertips down. Nothingfancy, just checking with the body, checking with the breath.Inhale again. Forward, up, and back. On your exhale fingertips release with elegance, withease; opening the shoulders, opening the chest, checking with the side body. One more as weground down through the top to the thighs.

Deep breath and exhale release. Take your right palm to your left knee, situp nice and tall. Send your left fingertips behind the tailbone. As you inhale, lift up,lift your heart, exhale journey towards the left. Find a gentle twist. Navel draws intowards the spine, and we remember that we come to the mat to have an experience in ourbody. Don't crank yourself into the posture. Have theexperience of gently moving into the twist, maybe closing the eyes for one last breath.We gently release back to center and take it to the other side; left palm to right knee,sit up nice and tall.
