Uploaded by HowToSingDotCom on 06.10.2011

Hi, this is Aaron from HowToSing.com and I want to talk to you about vocal training.
First I want to talk about who needs vocal training. Who needs vocal training? Everybody
needs vocal training I think. If you want to sing, if you’re serious about singing,
vocal training is necessary. I think part of the problem with what goes on today is
you never really see your favorite singers doing vocal training. You don’t see them
doing vocal warm-ups. You don’t see them doing their daily regimen. You don’t see
them in all their vocal training courses, or whatever they’re doing. You never see
this. But pretty much anybody you know that sings
is building up their voice, and strengthening up their voice and maintaining their voice
so that it can be what it is.
So I believe anybody that’s serious about singing needs vocal training. What does vocal
training look like? Vocal training has a couple of different factors. There’s the learn
all the knowledge stuff about singing, and then there’s the exercise part. And I think
both are equally valid and equally valuable. A tip would be for example when you’re going
to sing higher notes, what you’ll tend to do is lift your chin a little bit or raise
your larynx like this…hehhhhhhhhhhhh… and your larynx is this guy right here, little
Adam’s apple; even girls have it but it’s less prominent. But what happens when you’re
singing higher notes, notice it goes… hehhhhhhhhhhhh… it lifts up. There’s a way to avoid that
and actually on my site right now, on HowToSing.com I’ve got a video up there, it’s a 10-minute
long video all about high notes, this is just a side note. How to sing high notes without
strain, without lifting your larynx up and actually getting a full sound. Because the
problem with lifting your chin and lifting your larynx, it actually closes the area for
the air to come out and it becomes squeezed and you start straining here. So you want
to sing the higher notes clearly and without strain. And anyway, the video on my HowToSing.com
is how to sing high notes without strain.
What else does it look like? Vocal training, vocal warm-ups are really important and strengthening
exercises as well. A vocal warm-up exercise I usually say is something that… like a
first or second one you do kind of when you wake up in the morning is just something like
a hum or a closed-mouth like exercise like hmmmmm, hmmmmm something like that just to
kind of wake the voice up and get it going. Or maybe start going into mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm,
start connecting your two registers, your chest and your head register…mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm,
you know, but real slowly because the voice is like a flower. It’s got to like open
up and then it’s got its full tone. You can’t just force it open or else that’s
when you strain it or can even hurt it or damage it.
So that’s it for now. I’m at like I said HowToSing.com. I’ve got a lot of tips and
tricks, and a lot of articles up there, a lot of good information and videos for you
to check out. Like I said, I have that one about singing high notes without strain. So
