Questions and Answers
Can this DVD set help me become a better singer in a week? I really want to sing for this girl I like!
Can it turn my voice from crap to decent in a couple of days?
Thanks in advance!
A singing DVD won't help you become better in a week. I don't think anyone or anything can completely change you in a week. But it depends on what you define as "crap" and what you define as "decent"
If you aren't completely tone deaf, I would say you're already decent. Try and record yourself first to see how bad it sounds and go from there. If you don't grimace at the sound of it, then you aren't bad!
Singing beautifully takes years of experimentation and training. If you're serious, look into private lessons. But again, it won't transform you in a week.
Just don't do anything to embarrass yourself lol. Have fun with it, and good luck! Depending on the girl, it's the thought that counts!
I have always enjoyed singing.. I've been in many plays, chorus, whatever.
But I have some problems. A.) I can't really read music. B.) I've never really been a star in a show because I only sing well when I am confident and that never happens in auditions.
So I am in concert choir. Today I found out I didn't make show choir and I was a little hurt. (I did sing kind of quietly and not fantastic). One of the main reasons I get like that is because I am fine at singing my alto parts, but I CAN'T SING HIGH AT ALL! I don't know if it's from yelling so much from years of cheerleading or what! But is there anyway I can improve at singing high?
Thank you much. 🙂
Hey! I am glad that you are interested in singing, and I have some advice, and tips for you. First of all, Here is a method that will help increase your range, your ability to sing with style and variation, and help to sing clearly and strongly. Speech Level Singing. It works very well, and I recomend it highly. Speech level singing helps cure vocal cord paralysis, and nodgules. It also helps people without these conditions to prevent them.
SLS helps people learn how to sing, and become the best that they can! A lot of famous and non famous people use this technique because with it your voice will not come out, or be damaged. It also helps you sing high and low notes with a connected voice, so it sounds pleasant to the ears. Find a Speech Level Singing teacher near you, so that you can start now! For more information, go to sources!
Singing in a way is a little differant because you have to keep the tone you were born with. On our vocal cords, we have a thin or thick layer of skin like material. It is close to our skin and it protects the vocal cords. Depending on the quality and quanitity, of that skin, makes us sound like us. That is why everybody sounds differant. Basically you can not change the you sound. Some people get lucky and get a really good natural sound..that is just the way it is!
If youre voice is just out, and you need it for a recital, or audition, you can fix it. Always remember to drink water a lot! It keeps your vocal cords moist. Also, stay away from drugs, ciggerettes, alcohol, and cofee. They are not so good for your vocal cords. Remain from screaming, or damaging your vocal cords. If you need to warm up your voice, than drink 1 cup of warm water with 1 tsp lemon juice, and 1 tbsp of honey. It gets gross tasting to some people, but it helps your vocal cords warm up. Also, fruits, vegtables, and natural food really help your vocal cords. Stay away from junk food, and make sure to get regular exersize. Suprisingly these factors effect your vocal cords too! Any way, Good Luck! 🙂
Oh yeah, by the way…if you don't have time for a singing teacher, or you can't afford one, etc. Then you can do SLS warm ups on youtube.com Someone put them on there, so just type in speech level singing and then go to the playlist, and start at the begining. The advantage is you can do them at home, but the disadvantage is that you may not be doing them right, and may be wasting time because you don't understand it. I highly recomend a singing teacher though! Just go to my source and find a teacher near you! 🙂
Some other things that help you sing are tecqniques. If you are interested in pop singing, then you might be interested in runs, melisma's, and also licks,etc. These are when the notes connect and move really fast, but it sounds good. Examples are Mariah Carey, Kelly Clarkson, and Christina Aguilera.
In all singing be sure to use your diaphram, and always remember that. The diaphram breathing and singing is really important. If your chest moves while you breathe, then it is wrong. You have to breath more by your stomach.
Work on making your vowels nice and round. They can determine wether or not your are in tune. Making an EEE sound makes you sharp, and doing Oooo can make you sound more in tune, or flat, depending on your natural pitch.
Singing can be different for every person. It depends how good you are at reading music, and singing it with natural tone. It also matters how directible you are, and how good of a teacher you have. It matters if you practice alot, how motivated you are, and how much passion you have for it. One of the most important things is pitch, which takes a long time to get down unless you have it naturally. IF you have really good ears for music and you can hear if something is flat, or sharp, or perfectly in tune, then you have good ears. Also if you can determine exactly how sharp of flat ex: how many cents off from pitch you are, then you will suceed through singing and most likely all music. It is also highly recommended that you play musical instruments if you want to sing. You will gain musical ears, and be a lot better than before.
Most important thing, sing from the soul. There is not point in singing a song if you do not feel it, and you can't agree with it or connect with it. So, just try your best to do that! 🙂
Sorry this is soooo long and complicated! Hope it helped you! 🙂
Good Luck to you! I hope this helped.
I'm 13 years old and my mother loves it when people sing to her, i want to perform a song for her for her 50th birthday and i need help so i can sound better and not embarrass my mum or myself
please help and thanks.
Coming from an experienced singer, theres not really a fast and surefire way to improve your voice. You can try breathing and voice exercises to help, and also drink plenty of water. Always remember to take deep breaths before beginning. Sing your C major scale and just practice! Good luck!
