Singing Lessons For Beginners The 5 Laws Of Singing Learn Singing with Ken Tamplin
Hey, Guys! Ken Tamplin from Ken Tamplin VocalAcademy and I'm here to talk about the Five Laws of Great Singing.First: SUPPORT. What is thaté Everyone talks about support. â€œDiaphragmatic Supportâ€�.It's actually your whole abdominal cavity, not just the diaphragm, and it's when wetake a breath, we take a breath like this: Our stomach, when we take a breath in goes(stomach comes out). When we breathe out, we push down, kind of like we're going tothe bathroom. . or doing a situp. Let's do it againâ€¦ inâ€¦ outâ€¦ and we push down.And we use this as the engine that drives our â€œcarâ€�. It's the most important part, which is Diaphragmatic Support, or Abdominal
Support. Second: Vowel Placement. The ONLY sound thatTruly Grows the Voice is a Bright Ping, or a Bright Timbral Sound. It's not â€œhuuuuuh,huuuuuhâ€� or a froggy sound. It's a real bright AH! It's the LAH!! AH!!! Like the wants to see your tonsils in the back of your throat. So the throat should be OPEN.It's called Open Throat Technique. And the tongue should be completely flat to the baseof the jaw, to keep any stricture away from the back of the throat, like this. â€œLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!â€�So that you can tell â€œLAAAAAAAH!â€� that it's completely open, it's very bright,and that brightness, or that PING is truly
the only real sound that grows the voice.Third: Air Management or Breath Management, Breath Control. I'm not going: â€œHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!â€�and killing you with sound. I'm controlling my air, I'm using my diaphragm to do allmy work, it's the engine that drives my car, and I'm holding back my air and lettingresonance take over because my wellplaced vowel sound of â€œAHâ€� the way I just didit, â€œLAAAAAH!â€� is able to resonate and relax into the sound.Fourth: Stress Management or Stress Relief. I didn't go â€œLAAAAAH!â€� I don'tfreak out and actually close down on my body and tense up. What I do is I relax to thesound. â€œLAAAAAH!â€� I relax to the sound
so that I can use my diaphragm to do all mywork for me. It's my muscle, the engine that drives my car, that relaxes this openthroat technique. Finally, Fifth: The Psychology of Singing.If you freak out, and you worry about the high note, because you don't know how toget there. It has to do with the way you relax and think about the notes themselves, in orderto be able to get into good vowel placement, and understanding how to build chest, headvoice, and a mixed voice inbetween, to get you through the passagio, which is the passageway,from â€œLAAAAAAAAAAHâ€� to get through that passageway to provide you the ability to singseamlessly, endtoend, with a lot of notes
that you can control if you apply these factors.Thank you for joining me.
Voice Lessons How To Reduce Tongue Tension Jeff Alani Stanfill
hello everyone and welcome to the sixthepisode of Let Your Voice Soar! it's been an exciting time here at Voice Soaring Studios! My instructional DVD and CD called quot;Let your Voice Soarquot; was released last week and I'm so happy that people all overthe world are now able to learn about the concepts and the Swedish Italianvocal technique for pop, rock and musical theatre singers.So now, it's time to get back to sharing some very important quot;Voice Soaringquot; tips for you guys. Youknow tension comes in many forms.
There's good tension, which we need to sing. In order for the vocal cords to come together, there's tension involved. They're verysimilar to the strings on a guitar. They stretch become more taut. That'sgood tension! And in order for the breath to becomeenergized, we need to keep a bit of compression tokeep it moving through the vocal folds. Thats also good tension. But then there's bad tension, and that can come inmany forms as well.
so today I want to talk to you guysabout a form of tension that can really affect your singing in anegative way. And that is tongue tension. Tongue tension issomething I've suffered with myself, and something I see a lot of with newstudents. And it's something I will try to alleviate right away if Inotice in a new student. So first off, I want you to pronouncethe five Italian vowels in this sequence: ee, eh, ah, oh, ooh Now I want you to place yourfinger on your tongue,
and pronounce the vowels again like thisthis. ee, eh, ah, oh, ooh once again: ee, eh, ah, oh ooh. you'll notice, that starting with the ee vowel,the tongue is in a high, arched position, and it goes downincrementally when we sing each vowel. And we need thatto happen. but we don't want the tongue to completelydisappear
when we pronounce the vowels, and we don'twant it to stiffen up. when the tongue retracts too much, it's likeputting a pillow on your pharyngeal space. And instead asounding open and free, the voice sounds like it's suffocated.When this happens the voice has to work harder because thespace is closed. Does that make senseé if the tongue stiffens while you'resinging a scale or song, it can create a feeling is if you'rebelting every note. have you ever had that feelingé So let megive me some really simple exercises
to reduce tension in the tongue. First off, we'll start with a gentlenonaggressive exercise. Place your tongue between your lip like this. We're going to do a very simpleglide from top to bottom, on a 5tone scale. Ladies, you are gonna singup here. Guys are gonna sing down here let's start the exercise. Let medemonstrate how this work. Once again place your tongue between your lipsmumm
