When you type “learn how to sing better” into Google or your favorite search engine, do you (yes, I mean you) truly understand what you are asking? For most of us, it is a resounding ‘NO’.
Ok, well it may not be a resounding ‘NO’..it may be a hurried ‘yes’ or even an ‘I don’t know’. The fact is, most people that want to learn how to sing better have no idea what they are asking. All they know is that they want to sing like a popular music icon or a classical opera singer or (you fill in the blank). Whatever the case, they don’t really have an understanding of what learning how to sing better entails. I want to take the time to help you grasp the fundamental details of learning how to sing better. I hope you this article encouraging and informing! Let’s begin.
This phrase is pregnant with meaning. So much can be extracted that it is hard to cover it in just one article. However, I have broken down this phrase ‘learn how to sing better’ in 4 ways just for you!
1) The phrase ‘learn how to sing better’ implies learning some sort of vocal technique. When you type this into a search engine, you have some sort of desire to learn, but you don’t know what exactly to learn. I’m here to tell you that you need to learn vocal technique – proper and correct vocal technique. When you hear an incredible voice on the radio or during a live performance, there’s a 99% chance that the person singing has been trained in some sort of vocal technique. Most people do not just wake up and sing beautifully. Those that sing beautifully have been trained with vocal technique. So, when you are typing ‘learn how to sing better’ in the search box, you are wanting to learn vocal technique. I am a proponent of the Speech Level Singing method, but there are many schools of vocal technique out there. Do some research on vocal technique – it’s what you are wanting.
2) This phrase also implies that you want to sing with a sound that is pleasing to the ears. This is called your vocal tone. When you lack solid vocal tone, your voice does not produce the beautiful sound that you imagine. Vocal tone is a by-product of vocal technique. When you learn proper and correct vocal technique, vocal tone will begin to fall into place.
3) Thirdly, this phrase implies that you have a desire to control your voice. This is called vocal support. You are wanting to learn how to manage and manipulate your breath so that you have a steady voice. Once again, vocal support is a by-product of vocal technique. When you have the proper vocal technique set in place, vocal support becomes an easy thing to manage.
4) Finally, this phrase implies that you want to sing with freedom from tension. Most people desire to sing high notes, but they simply cannot because they tense up too much or flip into an airy falsetto voice. As with the last two points, vocal freedom is a by-product of vocal technique (if you can’t tell already, vocal technique is important).
So, to sum up the above points: when you type ‘learn how to sing better’ into a search engine, you are wanting to learn these things: vocal technique, vocal tone, vocal support and vocal freedom.
Now that you know the ‘proper’ jargon, you have the ability to understand what you are asking when you want to learn how to sing better!
