Learning to sing, we think about it first of all to sing right and not be ashamed to sing a "happy birthday" when we have to. Do you remember the music lessons where you had to sing in front of everyone? The advantage was that we were all in the same boat, so there was little chance of being subjected to unpleasant mockery. But singing false, contrary to what many people think, is not irredeemable. You're not born with a perfect singing technique and even if some people are predisposed from a very young age, one can always take the opportunity to progress. It's not easy and like any apprenticeship, it requires investment and work to shape one's vocal cords. Vocal cords are muscles and as in any sport, you have to work those muscles to make them more flexible and stronger.
You may want to work on your voice and aspire to become a true artist. Who has never dreamt of being on stage and singing in front of a delirious audience? it's also possible to want to live from your passion on a more modest local scale. Performing songs at weddings or on various occasions is a good way to develop your vocal technique while getting paid. You may also want to add another skill to your resume as a dancer who can also sing, to join a musical.
Of course, becoming a star is not for everyone and one may simply want to keep singing as a hobby or as an additional income if necessary. Becoming a singer is easier when you have a developed musical ear and are sensitive to musicality right from the start. Singing is a pleasure that is often found with family or friends, whether it is to celebrate, transmit emotions or simply to have fun at karaoke. Singing is an integral part of human life. We find it in stadiums to cheer, to celebrate a family celebration like Christmas or birthdays, to declare our feelings or pay tribute to someone... You don't need to be a soloist or a lyric singer to sing vocals but purely for the joy and to express yourself.. Not everyone who learns to play the guitar has a vocation to become Jimi Hendrix.
Singing well begins with good posture, allowing good movement of the diaphragm and the whole rib cage. Singing involves the whole body and in particular the whole abdomen: sternum, thorax, jaw, abdominals... The body acts as a sounding board and the resonators contribute to the accuracy of the voice. Standing or sitting, you have to stand upright to open your lungs. This is the best way to work on your breathing thanks to breathing exercises to increase your lung capacity and have more breath. Because breathing is the basis of singing. Singing is a real sport, so you have to warm up your voice so you don't hurt yourself. Vocal exercises allow you to warm up your voice but also to obtain a greater vocal range little by little. Yawning is also part of the singing exercises to keep the muscles of the mouth relaxed.
Doing scales for 15 to 20 minutes every day helps to strengthen your vocal muscles and to progress in finding your singing range (tenor, baritone, alto, soprano). Singing registers are not exclusively reserved for operetta singers. One is more or less at ease singing low or high notes, except for those with a mixed voice. Finding one's voice pitch allows one to better apprehend one's voice and to know what it is capable of and what still needs to be worked on. Work and perseverance are necessary to have self-confidence and be able to find your own beautiful voice. Furthermore, to succeed in dazzling the crowds with perfect tone and ease, you must be aware of the work that needs to be done. A good singer will also need to improve his diction (pronunciation and articulation, vowel and consonant), breathing (control of inhalation and exhalation), rhythm and pitch. Knowing your body and how it reacts is essential to having a beautiful voice.
Take private singing lessons to progress faster
It is quite possible to go to a music school to take group singing lessons, even participating in a choir. It may be enough to start, but a group singing lesson does not allow you to have an individualized follow-up to acquire a good technique without forcing your voice. Moreover, very shy individuals may not be as comfortable singing in a group for fear of making a wrong note.
Group singing lessons may awaken musical awareness, especially in the younger ones, to teach them music and introduce them to a particular style of music such as jazz singing.
However, musical training can however best be completed with private singing lessons for a better follow-up and a personalization of the lessons according to the student's objectives, strengths and weaknesses. The lessons are then more intensive, with the teacher concentrating only on one student. Home lessons allow greater freedom in terms of schedules. The singing teacher adapts to your constraints and travels to your home.
The mastery of the art of singing can be achieved through a few intensive one-to-one lessons, individual lessons, a singing workshop or vocal technique lessons to work on a particular point. Some elements of singing are difficult to learn on your own, and having the advice of a professional is essential in order to know what your interpretation is worth. When you are alone, you can record and listen to yourself to detect your mistakes, but nothing beats an outside opinion.
We either tend to be too hard on ourselves or, on the contrary, we tend to think that what we do is great when it's not. Vocal coaching allows you to acquire good abdominal breathing, to learn how to free yourself from tensions and to articulate, to know how to sing without imitating anyone, with your own feelings but also to manage your stage fright. A teacher will be there to correct you and make you learn to sing in a relaxed way in all musical styles.
To learn how to put your voice down and to improvise in a playful way, there is nothing better than a vocal coach. Warming up will be an important part of the course to relax the pharynx, larynx and the veil of the palate. A vocal coach is much more than a teacher who makes you do exercises and corrects you. He is there to encourage you, to help you surpass yourself and to release your fears in order to give the best of yourself.
A singing teacher will help you to pass the milestone of singing in public if that is your desire. On our platform, nearly 2,190 private singing teachers are present throughout Canada to teach you solfège, rhythm, how to breathe well and how to sing right or improve your stage presence. They are the ones who set their rates according to their experience, the level of the student and the geographical area. Coaching a student from the Conservatoire who wants to be a professional in Vancouver or Toronto, requires more work and will therefore cost more than coaching a child who wants to sing as a leisure activity. Deep voice or high voice in other words, soprano or tenor, what are you waiting for? There’s a coach out there to show you how to take your singing voice to another level and you’ll be singing your heart out with confidence!
