THE TRUTH ABOUT VOCAL TRAINING by Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy
Hi. My name is Ken Tamplin, and welcome to Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy. My slogan is, â€œIf you like the way I sing, I'll show you how I do it.â€� The PROOF is in the Singing.Why do I say thaté I say that to say this: I started out as a singer, just like you. I didn't start out to learn how to teach the voice to a bunch of people and tell other people how to sing. I started out because I wanted to be, maybe the greatest Rock Singer in the world, or at least the greatest singer that I COULD be.
So I began studying the voice diligently around the age of nineteen. I studied it for well over twenty years, and have had the opportunity to study under some of the greatest vocal teachers this world has to offer. Folks like Ron Anderson, who you might know as the premier vocal coach for American Idol, and the TV show â€œRock Starâ€�. He also has worked with Chris Cornell, Kelly Clarkston, Adam Lambert, Jennifer Hudson, he goes on tour with Alicia Keys, the Chili Peppers, Josh Stone, and so forthâ€¦
I also studied under David Kyle, or the late quot;Maestro Kylequot;, and I went to Rome for a few years to study there, as well. So, with that said, I want to talk to you a little bit about the voice, and what I feel KTVA represents, as opposed to what I feel there's a lot of other methods out there that misrepresent the truth about singing. And I just have to say it for what it is. In fact there's some courses out there that will even tell you they'll put an octave on your voice in just a few weeks, and they'll even â€œguaranteeâ€� it.
Folksâ€¦ I've just got to tell you. That's just not the truth. They're just looking for your money. They're looking to line their pockets with your hardearned dollars. I know, because many years back there were a lot of coaches out there that would â€œmeteroutâ€� information very slowly. In fact, most coaches do that, because they want to get you to keep coming back over and over again and they just want to fill their bank account with your hardearned cash. I designed KTVA to streamline
all of my life's experiences, not just learning how to sing in some climatecontrolled vocal booth room, but the years of live stage experience, different types of singing environments, competitions, recording, You know, and, and, andâ€¦ And I've streamlined that into the components, the hard core components of what it takes to become an excellent singer. Now you could stay in the beginners, or starters, or intermediate courses and enjoy that, and maybe you're a karaoke guy and you just want a weekend kind of thing,
or you can take it all the way to the Masters Class, which is Stage Three, which will give you the tools beabsolute monster singer. Now I want to talk to you about this quot;timeframequot; within which this happens. And here I've just slammed all these people. On my website I'm not posting a zillion famous people that I've taught. You know, my cousin is Sammy Hagar. I've worked with some of the biggest Rock Bands in the world. I've worked with some of the biggest music producers in all of Rock and Roll History. I have thirty albums out. I've got three Dove Awards, which are like Gospel Grammysâ€¦ Fourteen
How To Stop Voice Cracking Now Singing Lessons Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy
Stop cracking when singing! How do we do thatéHey guys, my name is Ken Tamplin, from Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy, where the PROOF isin the SINGING! Now, wherever you get your information from,it's important to ask yourself two very specific questions. And the first thing is:the person giving you the information, can they demonstrate it themselves, and demonstrateit well, and do they have students that demonstrate what they're teaching to prove out that whatthey're telling you is the truthé Here at Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy we have over 300tutorials, with dozens of students demonstrating and proving out what we teach, to give you honest, legit information.
With that said, how do we not crack when wesingé Well, why do we crack when we singé I think that's the biggest, most importantquestion. And, to answer that, there's many reasons, but there's two big reasons, andthe first one is physiological. There is a physical strength training of building upto a certain point so that we're strong enough to be able to hold a note. There'sa second part too, which is psychological, which has to do with nerves, and being afraidto sing in front of someone, or being afraid of the high note.Now, I have a singing course called How To Sing Better Than Anyone Else, at Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy , where I walk you through,
stepbystep, all of these different things,on how to strength train, how to think about the notes psychologically so you're notafraid of the high notes or you're not afraid of an audience. I also have some cool tutorials.Check out my Fear of Singing tutorial, it's on YouTube, you'll like that.But the first thing is, I want you guys to go refer back to my tutorial called DiaphragmaticSupport. We're going to do a couple of scales here. I want you to do them with me, but youhave to know how to control your diaphragm first, to be able to relax the chest, and theneck, and the throat, so that you are not choking off the cord, and panicking by thetime you get there, whether you're holding
a note, or worried about singing a high note, or just a phrase that's a little hard to sing. We're going to do three vowels: ooh, oh, and ah. And it's going to go like this.Now, guys, I'm going to do this in a lower register, for the mean average of where mostguys are. Ladies, you'll do this up an octave. La ah ah ooh, oh, ah, ah, ah, ahâ€¦You want to feel the freedom in the throat and the strength in the abdomen, because youknow how to control abdominal strength. Now, in the back of the throat I have another componenttutorial that goes along with this, called Open Throat Technique, where you want to have theback of your throat stay completely open,
your tongue dropped to the base of the jaw:Aw, Oh, Ahhhâ€¦ To where you create the maximum amount of space in the throat, to relieveany kind of tension that could take place there at all.La ah ah ooh, oh, ah, ah, ah, ahâ€¦ Feel the strength coming from your diaphragm.It's the engine that drives your car. La ah ah ooh, oh, ah, ah, ah, ahâ€¦La ah ah ooh, oh, ah, ah, ah, ahâ€¦ La ah ah ooh, oh, ah, ah, ah, ahâ€¦La ah ah ooh, oh, ah, ah, ah, ahâ€¦ Now, if you notice, I'm not going â€œoohoh ahâ€� (distorted and strained) I'm not straining in my throat, becauseI know, I've played this tutorial game enough
to know when I'm coming around the cornerand I lose a life from some bad guy that gets me, that if I have strength in my abdomen,and I've learned how to relax my chest, my neck, and my throat, I know how to getto the next level. So, I cover all of this in my singing course called How To Sing BetterThan Anyone Else. Now, there's one more really important thing,and that is the psychology of how we get to those notes. Now, there's something calledvowel modifications. And in those vowel modifications, we want the throat to feel the path of leastresistance. We don't want the throat to go ooh, oh, ah, and have big changes in thethroat. We want the vowels to be very similar
