Now let's be clear on something. Most professionals themselves don't singwell from a technical standpoint.
So just to sing like a Pro doesn't meanyour singing properly or great, but I have to point out that no matter where you getyour information, think about this: the person giving that information, have they achieveda high level of professional statusé And do they demonstrate students that haveprofessional statusé We have over 300 tutorials on my channel, withthe plethora, which means a lot, of students on my channel, many of which have achievedawesome professional status. Now just quickly go to Sara Loera, check outGabriela Guncikova, 10 second songs' Anthony Vincent, Mark Hudson from Dragon Force, Icould go on and on and on with a lot of the
students that have applied my course and achievedprofessional status. Now what does it mean to become professionaland how do we do ité Well it has to do with strength training andthe way we think about the voice and the way we strength train in order to build enoughprofessionalâ€“ism in what it is that we're doing to be able to sing strong with confidencenight after night with consistency.

Now, to be a professional singer, there'slots involved in this and it's not just only the physical or musical side, there'sa psychological side to this, but I want to show you a few things that you can do thatwill be really, really awesome. Okayé We're just going to run through a coupleof warmup exercises that will help you understand how to clean up the voice. Now, check out my tutorial on diaphragmatic support,check out my tutorial on open throat technique, it's the precursor of what you're goingto need to do, what we are about to do here
at this level. We're going to sing an AA vowel, and theAA vowel scale is going to go like this. Layâ€¦ Ahhhâ€¦ So AA and Ah, and we're going to actuallyslowly go through this to start to strength train the voice, here we go. Ladies, you'll do this up the octaveâ€¦ Layâ€¦
Ahâ€¦ Do this with us in octavesâ€¦ Layâ€¦ Ahâ€¦ Now, going between vowels, AA and Ah helpresiliency and the ability to relax the cords and to, with freedom, be able to go up anddown a scale without feeling tension in the throat, because we want to build strengthfor the sound. Layâ€¦
Nails in trees Daphne Richards Central Texas Gardener
I am Daphne Richards our plant this week is Queen's wreath, Antigonon leptopus, also known as Coral vine. This beautiful,Sunloving vine can also take a little shade and it's a great addition to anywall or trelis. If given the space to run free, it can easily spread to 20 feet wide andwith good support twice as high. It grow very quicklymaking it a nice choice
to cover up a bare wall or block anunsightly view. But this rapid growth can be challengingto keep in check. So coral vine is sometimes labeledaggressive and best avoided in landscapes adjacent to natural areas.Because of it's rambling habit Queen's wreath should be given plenty ofspace to roam. Although it maybe deciduous in warmer winters, it's more often perennial in CentralTexas. Because it grows so rapidly sheering it to the ground inwinters is recommended. It will very quickly
emerge from underground tubers in thespring and will be back to its full stature inalmost no time. Although you should prune it to shape itand keep it in balance, heavy pruning will remove the flowerbuds and believe me you don't want to rob yourself of this showstopping floraldisplay in late summer. The relatively large lightgreen heartshaped leaves are also quitepretty but when queen's wreath is in full bloom, you won't likely even notice thoseleaves at all. Flowers are normally rosy
pink but also light pink and white varietiesmay be found. A native to Mexico, coral vines are often found in heirloomgardens in the Gulf South and the white flowering variety looksespecially striking when planted alongside red roses. Trellisor arbored climbing rose can also service support for Queen's wreath vine, creating a stunning combination that makes a bold statement in any garden. This vigorous vine is alsovery drought tolerant, thriving just fine
and once a week irrigation during thedriest, hottest of times. Our question this week is from viewerNancy Smith who asks if she can put a nail in itoak tree to hang a plant. I love our viewer questions and this isanother great one. The answer is simple: yes. Hammering in a nail or two into a mature tree is fine. The tree will barely even notice as theonly living tissue is a thin layer of cells between the external bar and the internal wood. The tree easilycompartmentalize this small wound and
will continue to grow just fine. So hang away Nancy. Our viewer pic thisweek is from Kimberly Wieberg who snapped this photo of Baptisia bracteata near Houston. Thanks for sending your photo of thisgorgeous plant, Kimberly. And a special thank you to our Facebookfriend Sherry Coalburn for helping us ID it. To do in your garden this week: plant some easycare herbs like summer savory, oregano, thyme and basil with so many differentcultivars and a varities of herbs to choose
