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

Kraft Music Yamaha DGX650 Portable Grand Digital Piano Demo with Dane Madsen

{intro music playing} Hello my name's Dane Madsen, I'm thedigital piano marketing manager for Yamaha Corporation of America. Today I'm at Kraft Music and I'm demonstrating the DGX650portable grand digital piano. For a great deal don'tforget to visit Kraft Music for some incredible bundles. It'savailable in two colors here we've got the black with the dark rosewood sidepanels and stand, but there's also a stunning whiteversion as well. Let's get into this instrument.

{music playing} The DGX650 is a great instrument forbeginning pianist, or the piano hobbyist who wants to learn how to playtheir favorite songs, and they don't want to do in a basicform, they want to do it with backing bands in interactive features. It makes learning and playing musicreally really fun. {music playing} I love playing with the autoaccompaniments it's so much fun to hear all

these different styles whether it's jazzor bossa nova or rock. And all the different sounds you get toplay with go along with it, synthesizers, pianos, organs, it's like you could spend your whole night just exploring all these different musical avenues with this DGX650 {music playing} Now the other important feature or aspect to recreating the piano experience is thetouch. How does this instrument feel to

the fingertips of the piano playeré Well we've got the graded hammer standard action which is actually weighted heavier in the lefthand and gets lighter as you move up thekeyboard emulating the different hammer sizes on acoustic piano. Very important to the touch. Classical pianists are really going to notice that. {music playing} I like this key action it's veryresponsive, it's firm,

it's great for playing piano, it feels really goo when I'm playing strings and synths too. {music playing} Let's talk about how this instrumentmakes it's piano sound. Actually have a newpiano tone generation system in this series, it's called Pure CF Sampling, and what that means is we've taken the CF3S concert grand piano, that's a ninefootgrand piano made by Yamaha famous around the world for winning aclassic piano competitions

and festivals. That's been recorded andmeticulously assigned to each one of these keys here. We've even got multiple recordings per key. {music playing} But the DGX650 doesn't stop at theacoustic piano sound, we've actually hundreds of differentvoices in here that recreate different instruments. One of the simplest ones to do is just topress the dual button where you'll get a nice string sound layered right on top of thepiano sound.

CL Series Training Tutorial 36 Adding the default effects to your mix

Now that we've taken the time to set up each one of input channels, and apply EQ, Dynamics, and panning within the stereo field. Let's go ahead and take one of those input channels and apply one of the default effects to our mix. Using the default internal effects, we can add either Reverb, Chorus, Delay or a bunch of other timebased effects along with our channel. This can be done by using Mixes 17 through 24 to send signal from that input channel to that virtual Effects Rack. The signal returning from that virtual Effects Rack is going to land back on the console on Stereo Inputs 1 through 8. You have your choice of a lot of different units.

Anything from Reverb to Chorus to Flange to Delay —lots of different options which are available within that virtual Effects Rack. Let's walk ourselves through the steps of taking an input channel and applying one of those virtual effects. Keep in mind, Mixes 17 through 24 will send signal to your Effects Rack and the different effects processors within that rack. Each one of those effects processors are going to return their signal to your Stereo Inputs 1 through 8. First, you'll want to make sure that the input channel that you wish to use to send signal to the effect is selected and that the fader is turned up. Next, we'll make sure that the Selected Channel encoders are being used to send signal to Mixes 17 to 24 as well as the Matrix.

When I start adjusting encoder 1, this will start sending signal to Mix 17. Since Mix 17 feeds the first effect unit, we can see that signal coming into the effect in the meters. We can also see that that signal is being output from that effect. Next, in the Centralogic section, you will want to make sure that we select the OUTPUT and then choose the Stereo In. Turning up that Stereo In fader will add that effect to our mix.
