o Some of our dear readers have added our website on Stumble Upon!, allowing many others in the world to access our website and learn about the great singing tips that we have here!

Stumble Upon allows people to share their favourite websites with everyone, and also lets people Stumble through websites from selected topics, providing a more targeted and effective search experience!

I must admit, I got quite a shock when I saw our website traffic results jump! But it was a very pleasant surprise, and I am happy that our readers are spreading the love for singing to more people out there!

So, for those of us who know of other wonderful websites or functions like Stumble Upon!, feel free to recommend our website to them, and watch our singing community grow!

Brand NEW Website Section! Ear Training!

o Ear Training is absolutely essential if you wish to acquire a singing voice that is in tune, and also on-beat with the music of the songs that you sing!

That is why I have provided our readers with this new section on Ear Training, which trains our ability to recognise and sing pitches, identify and sing intervals, and also repeat the melodies that you hear!

These are abilities and skills that all singers should have, because we need to be able to remember tunes quickly, and even improvise on favourite tunes on the spot!

Interval recognition is also an important skill to have, and I will touch on this topic later on in this Ezine, under our Pitching Training Tip #3!

~~ Personal Singing Tips ~~

Rhythm Training Tip #1 – Keeping to the Beat of the Song!

I have set up this new category of training tips for those of us who may have difficulty singing to the rhythm of the song, often singing too quickly or too slowly!

Often times, we may not even know that we are singing out of beat, because we cannot identify the underlying rhythm or tempo of the songs that we sing!

Now, for those who face this problem, one very basic way to start training your singing rhythm is for you to switch on a metronome and tap along with it! A metronome is a tempo device that emits beep sounds to a fixed time, and this allows musicians or singers to keep to the tempo closely!

Using the metronome for your rhythm training will help you to improve your basic rhythm sense, and help you to keep to a steady beat!

Once you have mastered this, you can try to tap along to the songs that you are listening to. Listen out for the accents in the singing, as these accents usually follow the tempo of the song.

If not, try to listen out for the drum beats, and tap along with the drums in the song! This should help you to hone your rhythm skills and also improve your listening abilities too!

Just remember, when you tap, try to keep to a regular and steady beat, and do not rush or slow down! Do also get a buddy or friend to practice with you, so that you can correct each other and help each other out!

For those who wish to get some additional training resources to help you with your rhythm training, check out these useful Rhythm Ear Training Books:

I will also be adding a new website section on Singing Rhythm very soon, so do keep yourselves updated and come back regularly to check on our website progress!

Vocal Training Tip #5 – Using Vowels To Focus Our Vocal Training!

Vowels are another important aspect of our singing as well as our vocal training! Many of us know how vowels affect our singing, since the way we pronounce our words does affect how we sound and also how the audience understands what we are singing!

However, vowels also play another important role in directing our voice, helping us to focus our vocal training just by using different vowels in our exercises!

For this 1st example, we will use a simple ‘AH’ sound that is produced using the ‘A’ vowel. The ‘AH’ sound is extremely useful for training our Chest and Middle voice sounds, and helping us to build up a strong singing voice!

For those who may have a weak or airy voice, you may wish to train more with this vowel. Start off with the lower notes when you practice, and make sure that the sound you produce is solid and very connected with your most natural speaking voice! This will ensure that you have a strong vocal foundation with which you can link to your higher notes!

Practicing with the ‘AH’ vowel also helps us to learn how to open our mouths to sing! Make sure that at least one finger can enter our mouth unobstructed when we are singing the ‘AH’ vowel. This will allow our voice to travel out clearly and reach our audience’s ears better!

Once you have mastered this simple ‘AH’ sound, try to sing with other vowels or sounds, experimenting to see how these sounds affect your voice and where it will feel like it is coming out from!

For those of us who wish to get some additional help with your vocal training, check out these effective singing books recommended by me, Your Personal Singing Coach!

Pitching Training Tip #3 – Singing Intervals with Songs… Continued!

For those who have read our previous Ezine issue, you will know that i started talking about singing intervals with songs, and how we can relate these songs to our intervals so that we can learn them quickly and easily!

For example, the Superman theme song can be used to relate to the Perfect 5th interval. Or, the classic song Greensleeves can be used to relate to the Minor 3rd interval.

I am proud to announce that I have come up with a list of popular and classic songs that everyone can use to learn your musical intervals quickly and effectively!

This will make it easier for many of us to learn intervals for singing, and also make our vocal training more fun and interesting too!

Check out the link provided below to read up more about these songs that we can relate to interval singing!
