How To Sing Better For Guys Part 1

Is Everybody Readyé Well, Alright, then! Let'sGO!!!! Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah! How to Sing Better for Guys. Welcome to KenTamplin Vocal Academy, where we're going to be discussing How To Sing Better for Guys. Hi, Guys. Ken Tamplin from Ken Tamplin VocalAcademy, and I'm going to teach you a little bit about the voice and voice lessons today. This is Part One in a ThreePart series onHow to Sing Better for Guys. Now, there's a lot of different styles anda lot of different approaches to singing,

so that one subject isn't just how to singbetter for all guys, because it's how to sing better in whatever style you're looking tosing. Well, there are some very basic, nonnegotiables to singing, and I want to point out that mostof the time, not all of the time, but most of the time, guys want to sing harder thangirls. They want to get out there and just belt and wail. .and there's the other side, of R'n'B or Pop guys that are just looking to have somesoul, and some good licks, and some good tone, and good resonance, and stamina, andso forth, AND range, which we all want.

But I want to cover both aspects fairly briefly.I'm going to discuss Rock Singing first, and then I'm going to break into more Pop andR'n'B. So the very first thing is, is that we wantto have awesome posture. You want to sit up straight, or stand up straight, and by theway, when you sit, you lose up to 30% of your strength in your abdomen when you're singing,so I recommend you stand, if you can, but anyway, so you're going to want to stand,and you're going to want to take a breath from your belly, from your abdomen. Insteadof breathing like we do like this, from our chest, we want to breathe from our abdomen,from our belly, and our diaphragm. So you've

heard a lot about diaphragmatic support, soI'm not going to cover that here, I have some tutorials on my website regarding diaphragmaticsupport, and I have an amazing course called quot;How to Sing Better Than Anyone Elsequot;.So anyway, I want to talk about how to sing better for guys, so we're going to start firstwith this bright quot;PINGquot; in an quot;AHquot;vowel. quot;AH. AH.quot; I coined a phrase, it's called quot;IT'sthe LAH!!! AHHH!!quot; and it's that nice, Open Throat, Bright Ping Sound that keeps us fromsort of choking on our vowel sounds or pinching and squeezing as we go up.Now there's a lot to this but I'm going to just go through the basic elements of thisfirst, and then if you're interested, check out

my course, or check out my channel and I covera good amount of this stuff. So, we're going to start with the mean averageof singers, and that would be a baritone. And so we're going to start down in like amidbari or upper midbari range, and we're just going to go through a simple triad scalelike this: Lah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.And try to keep the jaw as stable as possible. Try not to move the mandible, or the jaw,keep it in the marble or static or stable position, we're going to continue up a triadscale, like this: Lah, ah, ah, AH, ah, ah, ahhh.Don't forget your breath. Take your breath,

and use your breath, bring in the breath,kind of like you're doing a situp, the feeling of how much strength is required when you'redoing a situp. So let's continue. , Lah, ah, ah, AH, ah, ah, ahhh.Take your breath. Relax the shoulders, relax the arms, relax the neck. let's continue:Nice, bright, Open AH. I don't mean quot;loh, oh, oh, ohhh. or luh, uh, uh, uhh. I meanquot;AHquot;. Lah, ah, ah, AH, ah, ah, ahhh. Do yourselfa favor. Even get out a handheld mirror and look at the back of your throat, and see ifyour throat is nice and wide open, and that your tongue is placed to the base of the jaw,so it's not causing any stricture, or any

How to Take Care of Your Voice Vocal Health Tips

Do you want to know how you can take verygood care of your voice everyday, so that you'll be able to sing forever and ever. I think you get my drift. Hey there everyone! This is Kerri Ho fromthesongbirdtree and today we'll be talking about how to take good care of yourvoice. This is such an important topic and you know what, if you're a singer who absolutelyloves to sing and you see yourself singing forever. You never want to stop even whenyou're like 80 with walking stick and everything. You still want to be able to sing then youneed to be able to do a few simple, though

not always easy things to take care of yourvoice. So today, I'm going to share with you 4 main things that you should do, to takevery very good care of your voice. So that your voice has longevity and is long lasting. The very 1st thing you need to do is to warmup your voice everyday, even if you're not planning to sing that day. Now I know thatsounds like a chore. You'd say quot;what I already thought it's a chore to warm up my voice beforeI have to sing and now you're saying I need to warm up my voice even when I'm not singingéquot; Well think about it, when you're talking whatare you usingé Is it the same voice that you

use for your singingé Yes, the answer wouldbe. And you know if you're going to be using your voice and most of us do use our voicenot just for singing, throughout the day, at work, at school and even at home, you'reusing your voice. Now if you want your voice to have longevity, you need to warm it up.Now the good news is, when you're warming your voice up just for normal every day use,it's not as strenuous or you don't have to take as much effort as when you're warmingup to sing for a gig for example. A couple of things that you can do is whileyou're actually getting ready for the day. Maybe you're getting change or you're in theshower or whatever. Getting ready for work

and getting ready to leave the house, youcan begin to do some light bubbles. Try to go from your low low low to your mid mid andto your high high ranges and back just a few times. And then when that gets boring andwhen you're like doing your hair or something, then you can do some NGs and things like that.While you're driving to work, maybe you can go, quot;alright instead of listening to the radioI might spend 5 minutes of that commute warming up my voicequot;. Maybe you can do some bubblesand NGs. Then you might even add just some really good Open Throat Sounds like this:woop woop, wee.ahhh and Mmm. Things like that and you just sort of do this and whatit does, is it opens up your throat, it helps

you to place your voice correctly in the maskeven when you're talking. That's important, otherwise you end up speaking like this throughoutall day and that's actually becomes very very exhausting and you get raspy and husky. Soit's really really important, and how long does it takeé It doesn't take long at all.Anything from 25 minutes is completely enough to warm up your voice. Obviously if you'resinging, you need to do a bit more of warm up. And you can go and check out my tutorialon How to effectively warm up if you haven't seen that before. The 2nd thing you need to do is you need totake care of your body. This body of yours

is your instrument, you're not like a piano,or a guitar. Even if you're feeling sick you can pick up the guitar or you can still sitat the piano and play and it's ok. The instrument has not changed but as a singer, if we'renot feeling great if we haven't been looking after our body, it's gonna come through inyour voice. You've experienced this yourself when you get sick and you go quot;Oh man I can'tsing nowquot; So you need to take good care of your body and it's common sense that you gotto get enough sleep. You got to get at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep a day. You need to make sure you move your body.I'm not telling you to go and run a marathon
