Message from Your Personal Singing Coach:

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

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

It is with a happy and grateful heart that I welcome the new year of 2012, and look forward to many more wonderful years of my life to come!

It has been such a great journey, having founded this website 2-3 years ago, and I am happy to note that my website is a source of inspiration and guidance for many singers around the world.

It all started with a simple dream, to be able to share my knowledge with people everywhere, and now I am reaching people even in countries like Russia, Nigeria and Zimbabwe!

I love you guys and gals, and hope that we can all keep up our love for singing, and we can slowly but surely form an international community for singing.

I will also continue to upgrade my education in singing, and hopefully I will finally be able to publish my own singing book in this new year of 2012.

This shall be my new year’s resolution to everyone!

I will also strive to speed up the frequency of Your Personal Singing Ezine, from once every 6 weeks, to once every month!

This is so that you do not need to wait too long to hear from me, and to read about great singing tips.

Do continue to support me, and I know that this year of 2012 will be a better year for everyone!! ;-p

RESOURCE Webpage: Vocal Exercises

Just as we exercise our body to keep ourselves fit, we also must exercise our voice to keep our vocal folds and its surrounding muscles strong and fit for singing.

This is why singers have so many exercises and drills that they can do, to challenge themselves and also to iron out the little imperfections we may hear in our own voices.

Just be sure that when you are practicing these exercises, if you experience any pain or scratchiness, STOP IMMEDIATELY!

Vocal exercises are not meant to hurt your vocal folds in any way, so please do take note of this!

Check out the Vocal Exercises now:

FOUNDATION Website: Breathing for Singing

It is with the notion of starting from the basics that we revisit this chapter on breathing for singing.

Certainly, we need breath to sing, and without breath, we can’t produce voice.

However, we must also try to be aware of how much breath we use when we sing, and only use what is necessary.

Breathing for singing is important because we become more aware of this, and we only use the breath we NEED for singing. ;-p

Vocal Tip #33 – Making Your Exercises part of Daily Life

It is usually the case with most of us, that we always say we have NO TIME to practise our exercises.

This applies to whether we learn a new instrument, or we learn a new skill, and it definitely applies to when we learn how to sing.

My violin teacher always asks me if I practiced, and I always have to sheepishly tell her.. No.. haha..

Anyway, I do have a small tip for everyone on how to make our exercises part of our daily lives!

This was taught to me by my singing teacher in Australia, and it makes a whole lot of sense, especially for singing training.

Before we start off with this tip, be sure to do your vocal warmups first so that you are ready for more exercises later on:

Vocal Warmups URL:

http://www.your-personal-singing-guide.com/vocal-warmup.html

Now, the tip I have for all of you, is that we should practise often and throughout the day, instead of having 1 or 2 practice sessions of 1/2 to 1 hour each time.

The reason for this is because our vocal folds and the muscles surrounding them really do not benefit that much from too long a period of exercise or training.

The vocal folds get tired, the muscles around them get tired, and we also get tired too if we sing for too long a duration.

It would be better for us if we practise many times throughout the day, say maybe for 20 – 30 times each day.

Each time we practise, we can just keep it to maybe 5 or 10 minutes, or just a couple of exercises for the thing or things that we want to practise.

For example, if we want to achieve clarity and projection in our voice, then we can just practise the ‘nay’ syllable for 5 minutes each time, in a number of scales.

Do this many times throughout the day, for many days, and it becomes a habit, and our voices adapt to it due to muscle memory.

This is the best and most efficient way to practise our singing! ;-p

Try it and see if it works! I am very confident that it will!

Pitching Tip #29 – Visualization is the Key to Better Pitching

Continuing on from my previous tip about practicing many times throughout the day, here’s another tip for you whenever you practise your pitching.

This works especially well for people who are very visual, or who have great imaginative and visualization powers.

Before finding out what this tip can help you achieve, do check out some FAQ that other singers have asked us:

Singing FAQ URL:

http://www.your-personal-singing-guide.com/singing-tips.html

Whenever we practise our pitching, we usually use scales to help us along, and we sing either the notes or the solfeggi for the scales we sing.

For example, we might use the basic Major Scale and sing in solfege: Doh Re Mi Fa Sol La Ti Doh.

One way that helps me in my practice is that I try to visualize the notes that I am singing, or the scale that I am using for practice.

For example, when I am singing the Major scale, I visualize the notes as they are in that scale.

I usually use a simple C major scale to visualize, and it helps me see how far or near each note is in relation to the other note.

This ties in with relative pitching, which I also discussed in another chapter in my website on pitching.

When I visualize, I try to see the notes on a keyboard or piano, and imagine myself singing those notes, so that I know where they are and how they should sound like.

This helps me not to sing off key too much, and also keeps me grounded to the key that I am singing.

Of course, this will only work if you are a spatial person, or if you have a good ability to visualize.

But it never hurts to give it a try, and who knows? You might discover another hidden talent of yours! ;-p
