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
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
Ep 45 Singing Higher is Easier than You Think Tip 2 of 5
Ep.45: Singing Higher is Easier than You Think Tip 2 of 5 Singing higher is easier than you think withtip 2! What do you do when you reach the top of yourvoiceé What do you do when your voice starts straining, cracking and it wants to flip intofalsettoé Here's another effective and powerful wayto eliminate cracking, breaking and straining as you sing higher. Inside this tutorial, I'llshow you how to do it. Hi! I'm Chuck Gilmore with Power To Sing. New environment! I'm actually in my teachingstudio where I teach voice lessons in Bountiful,
Utah, USA. For many of us there's a certain place aswe sing higher where our vocal cords want to break apart. (Vocal Demo): Oh Singing Higher is Easier Than You Think withTip 2 Here's a solution that works very well formany singers. It's called the â€œDopey Geeâ€�. It sounds like this: Gee Gee Gee. The first thing to do is to make that dopeysound. Say â€œduhâ€� like a teenage making
fun of a friend. â€œDuhâ€�. Not a regularduh, but a dopy or stupid duh. Similar to the cartoon character â€œScooby Dooâ€�. Duh! As you say â€œduhâ€�, feel your Adam's Apple,which is the Larynx. What direction does it move when you say a dopey duhé It should movedownward. If it's not, then you need to add the dopey sound. The dopey sound activates some muscles thatpull the larynx downward. If you can maintain the dopey sound while you sing through thefirst bridge of your voice, which is where the break occurs, the larynx will stay whereit is when you speak or at your speech level.
The goal with the dopey gee is to maintainthe larynx at speech level. This will help keep the vocal cords connected as you singhigher from chest into head voice. It also prevents tension and squeeze from the externalneck muscles which occurs with a rising larynx. The dopey sound needs to be maintained onall the notes in the vocal exercise. If you do, it will sound dopey on the lower notesand sound hootie on the higher notes. Demo If you lose the dopey sound as you sing higher,the larynx rises and it's likely you'll feel the added tension and squeeze and thevocal cords will disconnect. Demo Vocal cords split apart because I lost thatdopey sound. Let me demonstrate not losing
the dopey sound, now. It'll go hootie onthe top. Demo Ladies, you could do the same thing startinghere. Demo You might feel like you are breaking intofalsetto because the head voice is so free and without tension. If you maintain the dopeyand hootie sounds which impose the larynx down, it's likely not falsetto. Once you're able to maintain the larynxat speech level without tension and connected vocal cords from chest to head voice and back,discard the dopey sound. For some singers the hootie feeling is likea yawn. Demo I call it hootie because it's
like a hoot owl. demo It has a hollow feeling.Demo If you do this scale and you find yourselfat the top feeling tension and strain and no hootie sound, it's likely the larynxhas come up. Let me demonstrate what both sounds like. I'll go up the scale withoutthe dopey or hootie sound, and then while on the high notes I'll add the hootie sound,which will lower the larynx. Demo You can hear the difference. If you maintainthat hootie sound the Larynx is staying down. Singing Higher is Easier Than You Think BrattyNey vs Dopey Gee The â€œDopey Geeâ€� is a low larynx exercise.This is different from the â€œBratty Neyâ€�
