A good vocal tone is not established by singing loudly, it’s established at medium volume. Good tone happens when vocal folds are strong enough to have a good closure but not touch. Releasing too much air creates a “breathy” tone and releasing too little air creates a “nasal” tone. Unless you’re really going for breathy or nasal as a stylistic choice, somewhere right in between the two is a perfect balance. HearFones® allow you to really hear yourself and work on your tone at medium volumes. You can find them on Amazon.com or Google “Hearfones.”
Aaron!!!! Am I crazy to think that in only 6 days I have seen a tremendous improvement in my voice!!?!? I felt and heard it while singing, but I wanted to make sure so I recorded myself and BAM- so much more powerful. Thank you sooooo much. This is amazing…You totally saved me!
I’m going to say it’s close to impossible for anyone to teach you to sing, but reasonable for someone to help you sing better. Start on your own. Second, anyone who sings period, even those not as good as you, can help you. Here are some tips, though…
This bonus module is all about live performance. Overcoming stage fright and performing at your best are some of the things you will learn in this module. Everyone gets the jitters when we are on stage. I have been singing on stage for some years now, and I still get nervous. This module contains different strategies to help you overcome stage fright and shine as you perform live.
Envision jumping as you hit the high note. Perhaps you’re jumping onto a trampoline, or maybe you’re just jumping up into the air. Imagine hitting your highest point as you reach the high note. Take an adequate breath and keep your mouth open. Hitting a high note doesn’t mean you need to increase how loudly you sing.
This is a simple way to practice hitting the right note and singing with good pitching. If you have a digital tuner for your instrument (e.g. a guitar tuner) you can use that, otherwise you can use an online tuner like this one.
I received my BBA in Finance from the University of Texas at Arlington; through college and to the present, I have received over 25 years of performing/directing experience from overseeing two mega-church music ministries. At these ministries, I served as the department head, responsible for lead piano, directing, arranging, worship leading, and departmen
The cost of singing lessons depends on your method of learning. For private lessons, you can expect to pay anywhere from $10 to $75 per half hour. The rate is typically based on your location and a teacher’s level of expertise.
Maureen received her Master of Music from the University of Maryland 2017 with an emphasis in Opera Performance. Her teaching style is tailored for each individual student, in that what works for one student won’t necessarily work for the next (particularly in regards to singers), and strives towards finding the optimal method that encourages and helps students to improve. She firmly believes that anyone who is willing to dedicate the time and effort to learning a new instrument is capable of doing so, and looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals.
Aaron demonstrates how the exercises are supposed to be done and explains them in detail. The additional explanation allows you to start doing them right away, in the correct way, without needing much assistance.
Each lesson is tailored to the student’s unique needs. I use music that will suit the student’s voice and experience level, and will help the student to improve in certain areas. Also, I allow students to bring in their own music that they would like to work on. I have had students bring in music for upcoming auditions, church solos, and even pieces solely for entertainment.
Hi David. I’m just now reading your comment, and Cari’s mention of HearFones (paragraph 5), and would like to say that with HearFones, what you hear of yourself will immediately make a change in how you sing — in ‘real time’. Over 15,000 users around the world have told us so. It’s easy to understand why: imagine you’re a girl, putting on make-up WITHOUT a mirror. You’ve done it all your life, and you know the moves, but . . . As an infant boy, as a young child learning to speak, as a boy emulating the sound of a fire truck, you’ve never been able to actually hear your own voice . . . the one your audience hears. Your German teacher asks to to repeat and improve your diction in “Freude, schöner Götterfunken, tochter aus Elysium,” and you try and try and try, but . . . With HearFones, you will be building sound motor skills that teach you how to articulate the way you want to sound.
If you’re serious about becoming a singer, you’ll have to get used to singing in front of a large crowd of people, and in stressful situations. It’s one thing to sing to yourself in your bedroom; it’s another thing entirely to sing in front of dozens or maybe hundreds of people.
There are many good vocal coaches out there but also many bad ones. Many classically trained vocal coaches will tell you to push you diaphram, which can be harmful to your vocal chords. I had a teacher that would always tell me “Singing is an athletic exercise!”. It’s not, it should be very easy. You should never feel tension.
What I think about it: I really liked the structure of the course. It is very easy to follow and understand, it shows you a “course progress” bar, and every week I gradually felt how I was constantly improving and my favorite songs that I like to sing while playing guitar (from Beatles to Dylan to Coldplay, Rock, Pop, some Jazz) just began to sound much better. I also felt how I could sing for a longer time without feeling “worn out” on the inside of my throat, thanks to the good techniques and habits I learned.

I am teenager and sings a little bit …my voice already cracked ..but it still is undergoing some variations which is not so suitable for my singing career …is there any way for me to save my voice from variation and improve it over time …..??
Keep in mind that if you’ve never taken singing classes or lessons, you will have a much more limited range than a trained singer, especially when it comes to the upper range. So be careful not to wrongly label your voice as “low” until you’ve had some proper training.

You will suck if this is the attitude u give it. In order to have good vocals you also need to trust yourself!….. Close your eyes, and sing whatever comes….. twist the lyrics of already known songs, and use your current feelings. I bet youre trying to imitate other singers voices. Which is where youll sound like a mule cause every person has a different voice.
Singers, why limit yourself to one genre? Many artists have produced amazing cover songs to put their own spin on tunes, even those not in their particular genre. Here, St. Augustine, FL voice teacher Heather L. shares six covers worth a listen… How amazingly awesome is it to hear a song re-sung by a singer in a way that’s totally unlike the original version? The correct answer? Really amazingly awesome! Sometimes it can change the way we hear the lyrics completely, sometimes it’l … Read More

Cool Down: Don’t forget your vocal cool down after extensive vocal use. Gently humming feeling the focus of the sound on the lips is an excellent way to cool down the voice. You should hum gentle glides on the sound “m” feeling a tickling vibration in the lip/nose are.
For beginning piano students at the pre-reading level (ages 3-6ish) I like to use the Faber “My First Piano Adventure” series. I love that this series enforces solid technique in a fun, child-friendly way.
It’s extremely important to find a good voice teacher and to ask about an instructor’s training and background, because poor instruction or incorrect practice can actually ruin your voice. Singing should never hurt.
