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
How to speak so that people want to listen Julian Treasure
The human voice: It's the instrument we all play. It's the most powerful soundin the world, probably. It's the only one that can start a waror say quot;I love you.quot; And yet many people have the experience that when they speak, peopledon't listen to them. And why is thaté How can we speak powerfullyto make change in the worldé
What I'd like to suggest, there are a number of habitsthat we need to move away from. I've assembled for your pleasure hereseven deadly sins of speaking. I'm not pretendingthis is an exhaustive list, but these seven, I think, are pretty largehabits that we can all fall into. First, gossip. Speaking ill of somebodywho's not present. Not a nice habit,and we know perfectly well
the person gossiping, five minutes later,will be gossiping about us. Second, judging. We know people who are like thisin conversation, and it's very hard to listen to somebody if you know that you're being judgedand found wanting at the same time. Third, negativity. You can fall into this. My mother, in the last years of her life,became very negative,
and it's hard to listen. I remember one day, I said to her,quot;It's October 1 today,quot; and she said, quot;I know, isn't it dreadfuléquot; (Laughter) It's hard to listenwhen somebody's that negative. (Laughter) And another formof negativity, complaining. Well, this is the national art of the U.K.
It's our national sport. We complain about the weather, sport,about politics, about everything, but actually, complaining is viral misery. It's not spreading sunshineand lightness in the world. Excuses. We've all met this guy. Maybe we've all been this guy. Some people have a blamethrower.
They just pass it on to everybody else and don't take responsibilityfor their actions, and again, hard to listento somebody who is being like that. Penultimate, the sixth of the seven, embroidery, exaggeration. It demeans our language,actually, sometimes. For example, if I see somethingthat really is awesome, what do I call ité
How To Have A Scottish Accent
Hello, I'm Gareth Jameson. I'm an actor anda voice coach from londonvoicelessons. com. here are some tips for working on yourvoice. Now the key to any accent is to isolate the sounds that are specific to that accent. So, when I'm talking about a Scottish accent,I'm going to talk about a very generalized Scottish version of the English language,sometimes called Scottish English. There are of course many different accents dependingon whether you're in Glasgow, Edinborough, or Aberdeen. This one is probably what wecall a general Scottish accent. Now, the first thing you need to work on isyour quot;Rquot; sound. So, for most Scots speakers,
they don't actually use quot;rrrrquot; that we associate.It'd be very rare to hear quot;murderquot; with big long R's. It's much more common to roll the R just oneroll, called a tapped R. Bright red, so I say bright red like that. Or saying wordslike butter or bird. Notice that it's tapped, so it's not quot;birrrdquot;or not bird, bird. Also, if you get an L after the letter R, sometimes you'll have an extrasyllable on the word so that girl becomes quot;girl, girlquot; and world becomes quot;worldquot;. Theloveliest quot;girlquot; in the quot;worldquot;. Our next feature is the vowels in bath andlaugh are the same as in the vowels in trap
and man. So, quite often they are differentfor other accents, but in this accent they are the same. Bath, laugh, trap, and man. There are little difference: Bath, laugh,trap, and man. Also, the quot;ooquot; and quot;uquot; vowels are the same. In the UK at the moment, thereis a T. V. commercial with the tag line: quot;Good withfoodquot;. The narrator on the commercial is Scottish, so we hear quot;Good with foodquot;. They rhyme in his accent, and that's the samefor the quot;ooquot; and quot;uquot; sounds. So, that hook and pool are quot;hookquot; and quot;poolquot;. There is nodifference between the pull of a rope and
the swimming pool. Pool. pool and pull are the same. Pull. Finally, listen to this phrase which willshow you a few more features. It's not a problem if you haven't gotten any. It's not a problemif you haven't gotten any. Now, this is more to do with dialect thanaccent and in fact, while you're researching your accent, it is important to look up anydialect words, any words that are different in that accent than they are for other people.For example, rather of saying not, in Scots speak I might say quot;Notquot;. It's not a problem.
And rather than haven't, quot;have anyquot;. quot;It'snot a problem if you have any gotten any.quot;.
