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.

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

Bob Ross The Man Behind the Easel

Hello Audience. I'm Timothy Weal and thisis Knowledge is Power. Bob Ross. Whether young or old, you mightknow his name from the most recognized and watched TV art show in history: The Joy ofPainting. With his quot;happy little cloudsquot; and quot;pretty little mountainsâ€�, he soothed theears of his viewers from the show's beginnings in 1983 up until 1994 when he had to stopthe show due to illness. But what do you know about the man behind the easelé He was born in 1942 in Daytona Beach, Floridato Ollie, a clerk and waitress, and Jack Ross a builder and carpenter. They divorced whenhe was only a year and a half and Bob stayed

with his father in Orlando. He dropped out his freshman year of high schooland worked as a carpenter with his father where he reportedly lost the tip of his leftindex finger and kept alligators and armadillos as pets. When he was 17, he joined the UnitedStates Air Force. In the next several years, he married his first wife Lynda Brown, withwhom he had a son, Steven. He was transferred to a base in Fairbanks, Alaska when he wastwenty. By then, he and Lydia had divorced, but he was able to gain custody of his sonwho would later appear on the program. It was while he was in Fairbanks that he methis second wife, Jane who was a civilian worker

with the Air Force. Bob worked as a medicalrecords technician and as a parttime bartender. During his time in Alaska, Bob would takehis first painting class, start selling his paintings at the bar, and discover his instructor,Bill Alexander. Bill hosted a show similar to what Bob's would become, called “TheMagic of Oil Painting�. He retired from the Air Force and vowed to never yell againand developed the soothing voice that drew in his audiences. Upon his retirement, hewas offered a position as an art instructor for Bill's company. Leaving his wife andson in Alaska, Bob traveled the country teaching the technique, eventually returning to hishome state in Florida before being offered

to teach his own painting classes in northernVirginia. He accepted the offer, but had little success. It wasn't until Bill Alexanderwas called upon again that the show started to pick up. Appearing in a commercial promoting Bob'sclasses, a local public television station caught wind of Bob's soothing voice andpainting techniques. And “The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross� was born. A fallout withthe initial station occurred after just one season, so Bob then took his talents to Muncie,Indiana where they filmed all 13 episodes of the second season in just three days. Theshow was picked up across the country. Jane

and Steven relocated to Muncie to be withBob. By the early 90s, the show began being translatedand broadcasted internationally in Mexico, Costa Rica, Canada, Turkey, Austria, Iran,Japan, and many more. Bob Ross created his own line of painting products, and his ownbrand of instructional classes with certified instructors throughout the US, much like hismentor Bill Alexander had done before him. Bob became a national figure appearing asa guest on shows like Live with Regis and Kathie Lee, The Joan Rivers Show, and doingmultiple parody commercials for MTV. While his professional life was at it'speak, he lost his wife in 1992 after a battle

with cancer while he battled with lymphoma.After 31 seasons on the air, “The Joy of Paintingâ€� ended and he passed away soonafter on July 4th of 1995. On what would have been his 70th birthday, Google honored thememory of Bob Ross by depicting him painting one of the g's in Google, with a naturebackground and a squirrel on his shoulder as seen here.
