Singing Tips - 3 Easy Singing Tips For Beginners

Uploaded by HowToSingDotCom on 06.10.2011

Hi there. This is Aaron from and I'm here to talk to you about singing
tips. In fact I want to give you three pretty good singing tips, kind of get you along your
way in your singing.
First one is about the tongue. When you're singing, the tongue is considered one of the
biggest enemies of the singer because it's always in the way. First of all, it's the
only muscle in the body if you know, your tongue is a muscle. It's the only muscle in
the body that is connected at one end but free at the other end.
So it's this weird thing that is the only muscle in the body that does that. Also is
that you're trying to sing and it's just like in the middle of your mouth. It's one of your
biggest resonators to be able to sing and it's just like in there in the way. So where's
the tongue supposed to be when you sing? Seventy percent of the time, give or take, the tip
of your tongue is supposed to be on the inside of your lower teeth there just resting there,
right there.
So all the vowels, like [vocalizes], like if you say, Hey, hey, where your tongue ends
up, hey, right there. That's where your tongue is supposed to be for all the vowels of singing
and most of singing is vowels, consonants or something. It's just like a really quick
get the consonant just to get to the vowel because actually singing is just sustained
speech. So basically it's the vowels that are the sustained part [vocalizes] all the
vowel sounds.
So your tongue is supposed to be there. So when you do any type of consonant sound like
I said, like a TH or a T or anything like that, the tongue does need to lift up to get
that consonant sound and it immediately needs to get right back down where it's supposed
to be. That will help you have better tone and help your voice to resonate more which
means more volume and kind of a bigger, fuller, quality sound which all singers want.
All right. Next step. Your posture makes a huge difference with how you sing. If you're
bent over, you're leaned over, then you're not going to diaphragm breathe which I will
talk a little bit about your diaphragm, how to sing from your diaphragm. You hear people
say that a lot. Singing or breathing from your diaphragm basically is when you breathe,
your diaphragm lowers and pushes your intestines to the side and to the front and out of the
way. So it opens up that cavity so your lungs have a nice place to expand. OK?
So breathing from your diaphragm basically means you have good posture and you don't
raise your chest when you're breathing in. You don't lower it when you're breathing out.
That's how a lot of people breathe. That's how most of us breathe but the idea is to
have your chest remain relatively high to begin with and when you breathe, expand in
your stomach, in your sides, like your lower rib area [vocalizes]. And if you keep that
position as you're singing out when it's exhaling and instead of letting your chest cave, it
will help the diaphragm to continue to be in the descended position and not ascend and
not to rise up too quickly.
Anyway, there are a couple of singing tips for you. I've got a ton more singing tips
and a lot of articles, information videos, really good stuff on I think I told you. I'm
