Learn To Sing - Easy Tips To Learn How To Sing

Uploaded by HowToSingDotCom on 06.10.2011

Hi. Aaron here from HowtoSing.com and I want to talk to you today about learning to sing.
What is it to learn to sing? What are the factors of learning to sing? First thing is,
Can anyone learn to sing? That's a question that many people have. Maybe you yourself
have. You kind of wonder, 'Do I have what it takes? Do I have enough talent?
Maybe you don't feel like you're super talented or you weren't born with a ton of talent.
You can kind of sing but you're just not really sure if you can actually do it on a professional
level or whatever. You're just not sure if you can even learn to sing.
Let me just say this, that I believe anybody can learn to sing because learning to sing
is two main factors. There's kind of a learning part, the knowledge part, the more cognitive
part I guess and then there's the exercise, kind of the more practical, the hands-on part.
So the exercises, the vocal exercises, the warm-ups and the strengthening exercises and
then the knowledge is like the tips and tricks and all the stuff that you kind of have to
know about the voice that will help you sing better faster. The cool thing about the knowledge
part, you think, 'Well, let's just do the exercises and get to developing the voice.
That is awesome and that's a really, really big factor of singing because the knowledge
part in some ways helps you learn to sing better faster because certain tips and tricks
if you just do, you can know it, apply it immediately and be singing better.
One is if you know what's good posture, you will have better breath support and better
control of your singing. You will immediately sing better just for having better posture
or if you know your tongue is supposed to rest on the back of your teeth during all
vowels, you're going to have better tone immediately. All you have to do is remember it, apply it
and you will be a better singer already. But for sure, the exercises to develop your voice
just like any other muscle in the body needs to be toned and developed in order to perform
at its peak level. The voice is made up of muscle, many muscles. Cartilages as well but
many muscles and that as you build those up, you get better coordination, better control
and ultimately become a better singer. So those are the main two factors on learning
to sing.
I do want to give you – I will give you two quick exercises pretty similar but just
talk for a second about that. But before I do, let me just say that as far as learning
how to sing and if you want to seriously learn how to sing, my recommendation is to take
an online singing lesson program that is like a complete systematic kind of step by step
program and you can go to my site at HowtoSing.com. I've actually got a ton of other tips and
tricks and have a video up there of how to sing higher with less strain in your voice
also but I also tell you what my favorite online singing lesson program is and you can
check that out.
Real quick before you go, let me just give you a singing exercise too. It's the same
exercise but two different vowels. The first is the E vowel. The E vowel is a narrow vowel
which basically means it's going to be easier to get into your different ranges with a narrow
vowel. With an open vowel, it's harder to get into your higher ranges without going
into falsetto or into like an airy kind of voice.
So you start off with the E and with the E, this narrow vowel, I want you to go [vocalizes]
and take that first note up [vocalizes]. Take it up again [vocalizes]. So basically just
start where you're comfortable kind of in the middle. Take it up to what I just would
say as like a one, two, three, two, one and then keep climbing and keep climbing and keep
climbing and that E will actually help you get up into your head voice and to your higher
range without your voice cracking or breaking.
Now once you get the E down, you can do either – you can do an 'ah, an 'ih or an 'eh – 'ih
or and 'ah. The 'ih is just a little less narrow and the 'ah is a little less narrow
becoming a little more of an open vowel. So you can get that down because what you want
is you want your narrow and your open vowels both to be able to get in your higher range
but it will be easier at first with the narrow vowels.
Now I hope that helps. Come check me out at HowtoSing.com. I've actually got my link just
below this. Lots of free stuff. Like I said, I have the video of how to sing higher but
with less strain in your voice. So come and see me at HowtoSing.com and I will see you
