Singers, your body is your instrument. It’s a brilliant, perfect musical instrument when you allow it to work naturally. To work well, you instrument must be straight and strong, open and flexible.

The equivalent of poor posture is taking the neck of a guitar and bending it, expecting it to still be playable and sound great. Life is busy, tense, filled w/activities that make our shoulders tight – throwing your body alignment out of whack.

Sing Like You Speak technique uses the natural ease and power of the speaking voice to ‘teach’ a singer how to sing just as easily and naturally. This is because most of us have some very strange habits around our singing. So ask yourself, “What if I talked like I sing?”

As you will see in this video, talking like you sing can have some pretty funky results! Enjoy.

“If I train my voice, will I sound trained?” I am asked this question often by singer-songwriters.

Most singers’ idea of a trained voice is sounding like an opera singer – an affected, covered sound. I can understand singers not wanting that sound – I certainly don’t!

Sing Like You Speak training grew out of my frustration with classical training. A great singer needs training, but training that frees your natural sound – training that helps you respond to the music with a healthy and powerful voice.

This video singing tip illustrates the difference between classical and contemporary training. Enjoy!

Great Singing has many elements. Solid pitch and rhythm, tone quality and resonance, phrasing and creativity. Most of all, is communication. Communicating with the audience. Speaking your truth through the song.

A beautiful voice that sings in tune and in rhythm, that has good tone quality and resonance but lacks clear communication is boring. The listener’s mind begins to wander and then you wonder when the song ended because you lost interest.

Here’s a video that will help you to communicate clearly – to grab your audience’ attention and hold it til the last note has faded.

Enjoy!

Some singers shy away from singing lessons because they believe they will sound “trained” and not sound natural. When the opposite is actually true.singer-recording-his-new-track-in-studio-100215439

The human voice is the only musical instrument that is alive. That means that it’s constantly changing. The body is your instrument so your posture can change everything about your sound. Posture is actively seeking balance.

You experience different emotions from moment to moment. Those emotions can cause tension in the muscles. Intense emotions can actually freeze the body and the voice. Can you sing when you’re crying? I find it very difficult.

Your moods, the amount of rest you got last night, how many glasses of wine you consumed last night and what you ate for breakfast today are all factors that effect the voice.

The biggest factor is actually the thoughts running through your mind: “what’s my starting pitch!?”, “oh, no here comes the high note”, “darn I always mess up on this phrase”, “what are my lyrics?”

Every negative or panicked thought causes the muscles of your instrument – your body to respond with fight or flight behavior. In other words muscles that need to be flexible and strong to support your singing get rigid and tense and do not allow for natural function of your voice.

So what is a singer who needs to sing with freedom but does not want to sound unnatural to do?

Learn a good, solid vocal technique. Technique- if it is based in the natural function of the instrument – is a step-by-step process for you to follow. Technique introduces you to the inner workings of your vocal instrument. Singing is mastered inside the body. Inside the body is where you feel the results of your thoughts, feelings and the technique.

A technique that is founded on the natural function of singing is a consistent step-by-step process for you to follow under any and all circumstances. You cannot depend on your instrument to remain the same but you can rely on your technique.

A good technique returns your voice to its’ natural, brilliant and powerful sound. A good technique does not make you sound fake or “trained” instead it gives you back your fabulous voice!

You want to be a great singer? Get great training!

There’s a huge gap between someone who sings and a true vocal artist. Sally is a master at helping singers bridge that gap.

Singers are always wanting more power from their voices. It is the best feeling when your singing is grounded and strong – using all the right muscles to free your voice. Understand that the purpose of singing lessons is to create good habits so that you can be free to express yourself through the music.

So I’m going to share a voice lesson from my online singing lesson website. In this video lesson you will learn an exercise that, simply by the nature of the exercise, encourages using the correct use of deep muscles to produce a healthy sound. To view the video simply click on link below.
