Welcome Singers! This is our very first issue of Ezine from the new upgraded version of Your Personal Singing Guide.Com. (I’ve finally overcome all the obstacles and pushed through to reach out to you guys again!) The website is still far from perfect, but I’m hoping that it’s an improvement from the previous website design.

Halloween has just passed, and so I’d like to take this opportunity to wish one and all a happy halloween, and I do hope that you enjoyed yourselves last night with all the trick-or-treating, as well as the late night partying!

For all my existing subscribers and readers, you may notice that the actual format of our Ezine has not changed all that much. It’s just that it now looks more professional and the design has been updated (and the design will keep updating until I find something really great..) Hopefully this makes your learning experience more enjoyable with us here.. ;-p

So, enjoy this 50th issue of Your Personal Singing Ezine, and remember to email us at if you have any queries at all!

Basics of Singing

It’s always good to start with the basics, before we move on to the more complicated aspects of singing. In this chapter, we will learn more about what I call the ‘5 Basics Components of Singing’. Learning these basics will help us to build a strong singing foundation on which we can build our voice to greater heights!

Breathing For Singing

Breathing is vital to our survival. That same breath is what we use for our singing. However, most of the time we do not breathe well for the singing tasks that we want to perform. Knowing our breath well will help us to be able to take in enough breath for the phrases that we want to sing, and also not take in too much breath such that it will hinder our ability to sing!

Vocal Mindset Tip #19 – Self Motivation is a Powerful Tool

I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that Self Motivation is one of the most powerful tools that we can use in our singing training.

The only problem is, a lot of times we find ourselves bogged down by work, by family duties and problems, by our studies, relationship issues, and basically everything else that LIFE can throw at us, and we just cannot find the time to practise our singing.

Or so we think.

The truth is, we need to find a way to motivate ourselves to practise our singing. Once we have self motivation, we will prioritise singing above all other things, and we’ll naturally be able to find the time to do our daily singing exercises and training.

How do I know this? I know it because for the past month or so, I was trying to find some self motivation to finally learn what I needed to learn, and complete the upgrading of our website and our singing Ezine. It was tough, but I managed to motivate myself, and here I am typing at my computer into the wee hours of the night, making sure that you receive this inaugural issue of our new Ezine, sent out from our new and upgraded website!

You see, we humans can only do one thing at a time. It’s really just a matter of getting our priorities right at the moment in time. If we truly want to improve on our singing, we will be able to squeeze a few minutes of practice time at least 5-10 times a day, just doing simple exercises over and over again until our voice gets used to them.

So, the next time you feel as though you just have no time for singing, my advice would be to dig deep, and find some self motivation!

Pitching TIp #48 – Is it my Pitching, or is it my Vocal Technique?

When it comes to pitching when singing, a lot of coaches focus on the actual musical notes that a singer has to sing, and they try to get the singer to recognise these notes and also to sing them on pitch.

I do agree that learning the musical notes is an important way for singers to learn how to pitch properly when they sing. Being able to listen to their own singing voice and to know when they sing off pitch is also an extremely useful tool towards improving our pitching.

However, we should also spend some time working on the actual vocal techniques that students will require if they are ever going to sing the high notes that they wish to sing.

For example, I have many male students who have problems singing high notes. Apparently, it is quite a common problem and I can see a lot of you guys out there nodding your heads already!

Despite repeated pitch practises and drills on the piano, and despite being able to listen for the pitches and identify them, some students can still be unable to sing those high notes. And there’s no point telling students to sing higher if they just don’t know how to.

The reason behind this is that they need to know exactly how to produce singing sounds that will make it easier for them to sing high. For example, they need to know that singing a note in a thick or heavy tone will be difficult for singing high notes. It just makes their singing voice heavy and hard to raise up in pitch.

Also, twanging the voice helps singers to reach higher pitches. Twanging helps to thin out the voice slightly, and also helps to trigger a higher larynx position, and these help singers to sing higher.

So, the next time someone can’t sing a certain note, don’t just fault them on the pitch, but do also look at how they are singing the note, and perhaps it’s their vocal technique and not their pitch recognition that needs more training!
