@bobobobo, I agree with you to a point. But you don’t want to wait long before seeking a lesson or three from a teacher. Certainly don’t begin heavy practicing in earnest without seeking a teacher’s advice. I don’t think it’d be good advice to NOT practice… but take it easy, so you don’t harm your voice. – Josh Fields Sep 22 ’12 at 0:06
Your voice is part of your whole body and it’s affected by the movement of surrounding muscles. You need to make sure your posture is correct, and that the supporting muscles, incuding shoulders and neck are relaxed and warm, otherwise you could strain your voice, and risk injury.
How does one know what to look for in a Vocal Coach? What separates someone who knows what they are doing and is a perfect fit for you from someone who is a total fraud? It’s tough to choose and there’s a lot that will go into your final decision (and it’s a decision you’ll likely need to make a few times as you advance in your talents, move to go to college or find work in another city), but here are four things you should absolutely look for in a Vocal Coach, especially in the beginning.

superior singing method review
Heyo.. I’m Chu and I’m in high school c: thanks you for the tips.. I have been singing for a few years and I have been told that I have a decent voice. I can hit low notes as good as my high notes.. but I’d like to try harder.. and this is a good challenge for me c:
In the 2000s, the increasing use of recording software which contains vocal processing algorithms and digital pitch correction devices is replacing some of the roles of the vocal coach. In the 1970s, if a producer wanted to record a single with a popular sports star with few vocal skills, the celebrity would need weeks of vocal coaching to learn their song and improve their tone and diction. In the 2000s, the vocals are often processed through pitch correction software instead, and rhythm can be corrected with Pro Tools. This enables 2000s-era producers and audio engineers to in order to make an untrained performer’s singing sound closer to that of a trained vocalist.

I am one of the best singer at my school. my vocals have gone from worst to the good (i guess) using software called “super singing method”. I believe every on should have a unique talent. i have developed mine you should too..
So we’re just going to do a little scale, singing on ahh. (Sings five notes and then plays the five notes on the piano.) And now, pretty good so far, now we’re going to go to a five-note scale. The challenge here is in the major scale. There is a whole note, whole note, half note, whole note series. The relationship between all those notes is not exactly the same, which is where most people tend to go off-pitch. And this is a little bit more advanced but I wanted to give it to you because I think it would be interesting for you to learn.
Daily practice sessions are necessary to advance in your singing skills, but are you getting the most out of your practice times? This group singing class will show you the best way to practice singing on your own, including how to create the perfect environment and what to practice.
With Superior Singing Method you will develop precise vocal agility which is the ability to bounce from note to note as you sing. Most singers and vocal training programs completely overlook this important skill and it is the difference between from good singers and great singers. Singing vocal runs with ease, proper rhythm, and the ability to stay on pitch without wavering are just some of the benefits you will experience.
People do not only have different singing voices. Their voices’ ranges are also different. To sing well, make sure that you are able to measure how high or low your voice can go. That’s the way to avoid notes that your voice could not sing clearly right.
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 …..??
If you’re quiet, muffled, or sloppy, the message and story of the song can get lost. Moreover, some singers don’t even recognize when they have poor diction. This is where recording yourself while singing, or getting feedback from a voice teacher, can make a huge difference.
hello my name is anna ford i realise this is from 2 years ago but i love singing im pretty good at it most types i love ruth b and adele and alicia keys brian mcknight are all great artists i can sing great to others too but let me know if ur intrested im 20 and lovee to sing its my passion and hope to get in contact with anyone who is very serious for starting something big my insta is @theycallme_fabio_yo lol message me if ur truely intrested
You can become a much better singer by simply practicing. Just a few warm-ups in the shower daily can make a big difference. Practice your vowels; they are so important. Do this by dropping your jaw and elongating your vowels, to have better breath control. Your tone will improve as well.
This is OK…. but I need more anyway I’m Michael Austin upcoming artiste R&B I find it so difficult to shot loud and my voice is like hooking too…. I don’t know why….. well any help u got email me firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com or BBM is 2BE90951 or Emife500@twitter.com, Emife200@instagram.com please help
Hi, I’ve been trying for a really long time to make my voice stronger and louder. I can sing high notes and low notes but really softly. If you listen to Get it Right from Glee sung by Lea Michelle she has such a strong voice with a lot of emotion. Do you have any suggestions on how to maybe get closer to that point? Obviously I’m not going to sound exactly like her but I would like to get better. I have had a huge dream of becoming a singer and right now I don’t know how to even achieve that goal.
There is no absolute guideline to learning how to sing. If you want to sing well, you have to continuously and religiously practice, follow a training program that’s right for you, and try to develop your existing talents, with hopes of honing even new ones (new styles of singing, that is).
Some studies have even shown vocal improvements among the tone deaf after working with a singing teacher! These studies prove that even if you think you have a terrible voice, you can in fact learn how to sing.
If you notice the keys on the piano, note that the pitch “do” occurs more than once along the keys. The entire range of notes from one “do” to the next is called an octave. As your vocal range expands, you may achieve the ability to sing several octaves. To practice this, a piano would be very helpful. Press the key of the note “do” on the piano. This may be anywhere, depending on the type of instrument you have, such as a soprano, alto, or mezzo. Note that your voice will be traveling in an uprising fashion, so choose the spot accordingly. Start from a pitch you can comfortably sing. If you are an alto, it is best to start at a spot further down on the piano. Likewise, if you sing soprano, start higher. Mezzos should find a spot somewhere in between, midway throughout the keys. If you do not know your vocal type, make an estimate and find what works for you. Press the key “do” on the piano, and match pitch with your voice. Hold out this note as long as you comfortably can. Then, press the “do” one octave higher than the one you were singing and match pitch, holding it out accordingly. If you find this is too high for you, either start lower from the beginning, or you could try half of an octave by going from “do” to “so” instead. After singing the higher note “do” match pitch with the lower one again and sing it out to a comfortable extent. If you are a beginner, this may be enough octave training for the day. If you choose to persevere and move on, try singing out the note “re” as long as you comfortably can, then matching pitch with the higher note “re” and holding it as long as you may. Then hold out the lower note “re” once more. Try this practice with the notes “mi, fa,, so, la, ti, etc. depending on the stretch of your range. This exercise is intended to lengthen and strengthen the range of your vocal chords. Please be cautioned of straining your instrument.

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
Hi Charlotte. As you can see I keep posting regularly on the website and not going anywhere – so you can rest assured you’ll get answers here. (: As to your question, yes, I also had some experience before taking it and it still helped me out a lot. Doing the exercises every day for 8 weeks will definitely improve you and give you a larger sense of confidence in your singing. As to the price, based on the fact that it’s a full course for the price of two-three lessons with a real teacher – for me it was easily worth it.
It is a bit weird for an athiest, though. One other options that I’ve heard of, and been meaning to try, is a workers’ choir. There’s one in most large cities, I think. Of course, then you might be uncomfortable if you don’t share the politics, which can be just as weird as religion, sometimes 🙂 – naught101 Sep 23 ’12 at 13:15
I would like to say Steven was an amazing piano teacher for my 5 year old and he really was able to teach him a lot of the basics and some neat tunes. He is great with kids and with my child being 5 and needing a lot of patience it was really a breeze for Steven to teach and keep his attention during the lesson. He is definitely a natural at what he does! I am very satisfied with Steven and his style of teaching. He is a well deserved five star rating and I can not wait till my son gets to start guitar lessons with him in the future.

First of all, Aaron’s program covers all key aspects of singing, from singing higher notes to gaining more power and vocal agility, improving your pitch, increasing your range, and also singing for longer periods without getting fatigued.
The first part of knowing what group you belong in is your gender. If you are a female, then you are either an alto or soprano. If you are a male, then you are either a tenor or bass. The second part is how high or low your voice is. If you are a female and you’re more comfortable singing at a high pitch rather than a low pitch, then you are a soprano. If you are a female and you’re more comfortable singing at a lower pitch, then you are an alto. If you are a male and you’re more comfortable singing at a higher pitch, then you are a tenor. If you are a male and you’re more comfortable singing at a lower pitch, then you are a bass.
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.
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.
Tone deafness is a real condition. It is part of a biological condition of the brain called amusia which encompasses a number of musical inabilities, including some related to rhythm rather than pitch. As part of amusia, tone deafness means that you are incapable of hearing the differences between musical pitches.
Any time you need extra help with your musical performance or are looking for inspiration, feel free to consult with an instructor during store hours. There is no charge for this service and no appointment is necessary.
Don’t hesitate to shoot him an email and Aaron will reply to you directly. The help system also shows you all the different questions already asked by other students and the answers that were given. Just browse through them and your questions might have been answered already. You might not need to ask for help, after all.
Private singing lessons and vocal coaching focus on vocal health, breath control, blending the registers, flexibility, range, increasing resonance and projection in addition to building a rich song repertoire. Deborah listens to each voice and strives to bring out the innate vocal potential of every singer. Each voice will blossom forth freely with a safe and healthy vocal technique, which will ensure longevity. Singing lessons will bring out the best in your voice.
However in the US, unlike European nations such as Germany and England, the choir system for kids in school has been all but obliterated. Added to that lack, kids emulate the pop music they buy on CD, which doesn’t essentially develop a young voice properly. So we’re in a catch 22 about voice lessons and kids. But here are some guideposts:
Accompaniment by a pianist is often part of vocal coaching. The vocal coach may double as a vocal coach and as an accompanist. In other cases, the vocal coach may hire an accompanist to play during the coaching sessions. Piano is one of the most common instruments used for accompaniment, as it can be used to play basslines, chords and melodies at the same time. Other instruments may also be used (e.g., guitar, Hammond organ, etc.) but are less common.
If you feel comfortable after awhile, ask to join the church choir. Then you can start learning more demanding and challenging vocal music, and you will have an opportunity to learn, practice and rehearse with some structure and some goals in mind, every Wednesday night and Sunday morning, for free.

But I will do the best I can to help you on this journey to learning the greatness of music.
There exists a science that dictates how a beautiful tone is produced. One of the things that can give a singer a gorgeous tone is the use of vocal resonances. These resonances (Frontal sinus, Sphenoid sinus, Maxillary sinus and Ethmoid air cells) enhance phonation in quality of tone, intensity and color. This results in a beautiful, rich and unique sound. In contrast, resonating poorly will make one’s voice sound thin and ordinary. At “Beautiful Voice NJ” students spend of part of their private singing lesson learning how to resonate.
