Message from Your Personal Singing Coach:

“Welcome all fellow singers, vocal coaches and singing students!

This month marks a special point in the growth of our website, because our readership has broken the milestone of having more than 1,500 unique visitors a day!

I am extremely grateful to everyone for your kind support, and also for helping to spread news about my website to your friends and family and basically everyone in this huge wide world.

My country (Singapore) recently celebrated our 46th National Day on the 9th of August, and it made me think back to how I first started on this singing journey, and began this website for the benefit of people everywhere.

Looking back, I am very proud to have done so, and to have put up my knowledge and tips online so that everyone can read them and benefit from them!

I have received many lovely compliments from many people everywhere, and I hope that you continue to strive towards better singing, and keep working at improving your voice.

I even got news that my ezine is being used as teaching material for a choir in the U.S! I am so proud of you guys, and I hope that more singing groups can do the same. ;-p

Singing is a lifelong journey, and there are just so many things that we can learn, so keep upgrading your skills, and keep an open mind always!

I would like to request that you do make an effort to join Your Personal Singing Guide’s NEW Facebook Fan Page

RESOURCE Webpage: Vocal Warmup

I recently received a comment on our Facebook Group, about doing vocal warmups, and this is why I am featuring this webpage here.

I would like to encourage all singers around the world to do your warmups before you sing.

This is as important as how an athlete MUST do his warmups before he runs a marathon or does his routine training.

We singers are athletes too, and the songs we sing can be compared to a training session or even a marathon.

So, be sure to do your warmups religiously, or you could pull a ‘vocal muscle’ and spend a long time recovering from that.

FOUNDATION Website: Singing Problems

Learning about the basic singing problems will certainly help us in our singing journey.

This is because we would then know what are the basic problems that we might encounter, and be more aware of them.

Awareness is key in helping us to overcome our old singing habits, and install new ones!

Face up to your problems now, and eliminate them once and for all.

Vocal Tip #30 – How Important are your Vocal Warmups?

Many people do not do warmups before they sing. In fact, they might even find it a bother to do so!

However, for singers who are serious about improving our voices, you may find that doing our vocal warmups before we sing is paramount to making sure that we do not harm or abuse our voices later on.

This is because our vocal warmups help us to get our voices prepped for singing, and for the vocal tasks that we want them to do.

Check out the URL below if you wish to read about basic vocal warmups:

Now, some of the most basic vocal warmups that I would recommend are humming and the lip trill.

These are explained in more detail in the URL stated above.

Another good vocal warmup that we should do is the ‘Siren’, which basically works on a simple ‘ng’ syllable.

Start the siren from a suitable high note (preferably above your passagio or ‘break’ in your voice), and take it up to a comfortably high note, and then bring it down to a comfortably low note.

Repeat this process a few times on a single breath, making sure that the dynamics of the siren are constant, and that there is no significant difference in force employed for the various pitches.

You should try doing this softly, without too much force from your breath or diaphragm, especially not for the high notes in your range.

This helps to train our voice to produce sound in our higher range, without the accompanying push of the breath that most of us would include!

Do also try to keep the back of your tongue high when doing this exercise, and smile more as it helps to keep your throat more open.

Practise this and feel your vocal mastery improve, especially for your higher notes!

Pitching Tip #26 – Think Low when Singing High, and Vice Versa

Some of you might remember me talking about this some time back, but here I am again, reminding everyone about some basic tips for pitching.

When we sing high, try to think of your voice as being sung from a low place.

You could visualize your vocal support coming from a low position in your body, or just feel that overall your voice sounds lower, and not coming out from above the top of your head.

This helps to make our high notes feel easier to sing, and not so out of reach, because some notes may be really high and if we place them up there, we most certainly would have a strong phobia of being able to sing them.

It also helps make our high notes sound stronger, because we are able to visualize them in a lower place, and our voice naturally comes out stronger in this place.

Check out the URL below for some listening exercises that tone-challenged singers can practise with:

Vice versa, for our low notes, we should try to visualize them as being sung from a higher placement or position.

This helps to lift these low notes and give them a more pleasant tone, rather than being sung in a low and deep voice.

It also might make it easier to sing these notes, because when we place them too low, we might end up making weird ‘slack’ noises with our vocal cords, instead of pitching them properly.

Forcing our low notes down low always ends up in discomfort in our throat, so it is certainly wiser to try and place them in a higher position so it feels more comfortable to sing them.
