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
NJ as the next Silicon Valley Avi Karnani at TEDxNavesink
I grew up in New Jersey,I went to school in New York City and I've lived within 50 milesof here my whole life, with the exception of a period of time when I started my first tech startup and I moved to Palo Alto, California in the heart of Silicon Valley. And in the Valley, people would say to me, quot;It's really good that you moved here to do what you're doing.quot; They don't really do innovation wellback East; this place is different.quot;
And since this conversationwas happening in the same town as Google and Facebook and down the road from Steve Jobs' house, I kind of had to agree, but the thought stayed with me and I wondered, quot;Why couldn't I do innovation back homeé What was different about this placeéquot; I thought, maybe it's the infrastructure, so I took a look at a map. I saw that Silicon Valley sits in between San Francisco to the north, and San Jose to the south,with Stanford University in the center.
All of those places are connected by two major highways, a workhorse of a road calledthe Bayshore Expressway 101, and a really pretty, really green freeway, 280. If traffic isn't your thingyou can take an airplane or the train. There's a commuter line that goes all the way down this corridor. All across this area are people who are diverse, welleducated, affluent and aspirational.
And companies know this. Companies like Adobe, Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter and Oracle, NASA makes its home here. They have their premierAeronautics Research Center in the middle of the Valley. And it's a great place to work,
but I'm from Central New Jersey, so looking at that map,looking at that geography, it didn't seem all that new to me. We are bookended by two major cities, New York in the north, and Philadelphia in the south, people are doing super interesting things,including a lot of tech. We have Princeton University right in the center which is consistently number one in national rankings
and with Rutgers, Stevens Tech, Columbia, NYU Poly, Cornell Technion, and U Penn, we graduate a ton of engineering students. This whole area is connected by two major roadways. The original workhorse of a road, I95 and if you want to go somewherenice and take a pretty drive,
