1. The posture of singing is very important.
Stand up straight on the support strength of the legs. The position of the head is more important than that of the body. Some people raise their heads when they sing high notes, as if it saves them some effort, but it doesn’t. Head up, treble tight. The throat will be tight, not loose.
Correct: Keep your head slightly down, but not too low. The head has a lot of resonance, the sound resonates in the head, the sound is loud. The action of the head should be opposite to the melody, the higher the head is slightly lower, the sound seems to go down to the chest.
2. Try to avoid muscles that have nothing to do with singing.
Try not to pull on other muscles when using your diaphragm to control your breathing. Don’t push too hard. This will close all the chambers and shut down the sound. Don’t be nervous when you sing, sing naturally, relax your shoulders, don’t make small movements, and use your diaphragm when you sing.
3. Open the throat
Opening your throat is simple. When you’re sleepy, yawn as you talk and your throat opens. Opening the throat is more important than opening the mouth! This will make a brighter sound than if you only open your mouth without opening your throat, so open your mouth and throat together, preferably wider at the back! As with an inverted funnel, the big mouth is at the neck and throat, and the tip of the funnel is at the mask. If the sound position has all entered the mask, the voice can be sung from the lightest to the strongest.
4. The focus of
Sing with resonance, focus, focus on the mask. Too far, too close. Everyone has their own best voice point, point concentration, the voice will be louder and louder; the sound went away without a dot. It starts small, then spreads out and gets bigger. This method of sounding, the sound is small, as if there is a mirror behind the lamp, can make the light farther. The head, sinuses and other places are empty resonance cavity, to try to use.
When you sing, breathe as you would if you were lying down. Between chest breathing and abdominal breathing (diaphragm), I prefer abdominal breathing, which allows me to inhale deeply and quickly. But no matter what kind of breath, I can’t use both at the same time! This is contradictory, like putting one foot on the brake and one foot on the gas.
6. Training voice
You first find the best note and then sing it up and down, without moving your mouth or throat, and try to feel and imitate the best note when you sing the neighboring note. This is called “self-imitation”. Everyone should have a “sound memory”. Pay special attention to the sensation of the voice and throat. Singing is very abstract, you must pay attention to the throat tendon and other vocal organs of the skill state. The memory of sound not only refers to the tone, but also includes the quality of sound, timbre, intensity. The unity of upper, middle and lower sound areas should be pursued.
7. The Basics of vocalization
First of all, the laryngeal muscles should make Adam’s apple slightly down, so that the fullness of the voice, volume and so on is better than up. Secondly, when singing, we should maintain an air column, contrary to the natural voice, on the basis of the air column, the higher the high area, the louder the sound. And by opening the throat, I mean opening the throat so that the sound can come in and out very freely, unsuppressed, undisturbed,
Open the nasal cavity, enter the head cavity, freely vibrate to resonate. Use breathing support to get the most resonance, not to open your throat and then press and squeeze and your voice goes white. If we can find a correct position, the sound will automatically and correctly enter the mask.
8. Voice position
The vocal cords are like rubber bands, stretching as well as widening. But if a person does not use their real voice quality normally, but deliberately supports the voice in the low area, so that the high note will not be able to sing. Even when sung, the sound is swaggering.
Correct sound position is: according to the treble voice limit size and high position, to settle in, bass voice volume and location, instead of big sound, low voice the voice deliberately in up to practice, to sing the first sound, Adam’s apple down and up again to sing the second tone, control the Adam’s apple, perfected the second tone, and practice the third, fourth, gradually increase.
9. The throat
Relationship between opening throat, Adam’s Apple stability and muscle force on both sides of larynx. The strong neck muscles on both sides of the larynx require the muscles on both sides to help the larynx open, rather than squeezing it tight.
The proper opening of the throat is to feel the neck expand around. The easiest way to do this is to use the natural yawning sensation to talk and sing. Another option is to sing with a smile on your lips. Pouting and pulling the chin make the mouth a vertical oval, and the throat tends to tighten.
10. Change to a sound
How to solve the problem of changing sound points. Medium and low voice area, to be as wide as the high voice area, it is easy to transition. If you make the bottom too wide, too big, the transition is difficult to pass. When you begin to sing in the low and middle voice area, you should first think about the position of the high voice. If you sing according to this position, you will be able to pass smoothly. Because the position of the sound remains in the mask resonance. When you sing transitions, don’t push hard. Sing softly and smoothly.
11. Weak sound
When singing pianissimo, there should still be mask resonance, which requires the same tone quality and timbre as when singing forte. When singing high notes, the voice is loud and bright in the mask, and when singing low notes, the same effect is needed, but it is much softer.
12. The high
Be careful not to open your mouth wide when singing high notes. When singing high notes with abdominal breathing, the upper abdomen should be slightly outward.
13. Don’t be afraid to be quiet!
A lot of people want to raise their voices in the middle zone. Don’t do that. Beautiful voice, high position, high quality. It’s hard to stay in a position because the diaphragm is lazy.
15. A little
HC. Make it weak. Make it small. Don’t open your mouth to sing and run away in half, you’ll feel blue in the face! The art of singing is the art of inhaling, that is, inhaling a lot and singing as slowly as possible. Vibrate the vocal cords with very little air. The trick is to keep it small! It’s gonna be bad when it’s loud.
16. Sing with skill
Don’t push hard when you sing the bass, just keep it simple, like a little hammer. When you sing high notes, it’s like there’s a little bell in there, especially for lyric sopranos. Sing where you hum. It’s about position, not strength.
17. A perfect ending
You can do better with that high note at the end, just breathe in, hit it all at once, hit it very small and then extend and enlarge it.
18. The diaphragm
When breathing, the diaphragm looks wide around, especially in front of the septum muscles are very firm. Remember, always breathe through your diaphragm!
