RESOURCE Webpage: Singing Contests

Some readers have written to me and commented that they benefited from the tips I posted in the webpage on Singing Contests.

This is why I am featuring this webpage here, so that those of you who are thinking of taking part in any singing competition can benefit from the information there.

Even for those of you who are not yet taking part in any competition, it would do you good to just have a read, and know how you can reduce stagefright when performing.

This is useful even in our everyday lives, in daily communication and also in class or work presentations too!

RESOURCE Website: Interval Ear Training

Some time ago, I chanced upon this website for Ear Training and introduced it to some of you readers out there.

I’d just like to take this chance to tell everyone about this great website again, and hopefully more of you will benefit from it!

This website allows you to train your aural awareness, and also learn how to identify musical intervals.

Intervals are important in allowing us to know whether we are singing off pitch, and also to let us have a better understanding of the notes that we are singing.

All you have to do on this website is to select the intervals you want to be tested on, and just get the website to play a random interval to you, after which you will try to guess the correct answer.

If you don’t know what interval it is, you can always check the answer immediately with the click of a button!

Have fun! ;-p

Vocal Tip #28 – The Tongue and its Importance for Singing

The tongue is such a huge muscle in our mouth, and it really is such a wonderful piece of our anatomy!

What we notice about the tongue in our everyday lives, is really only the tip of the iceberg.

The tongue also reaches further down and further back, and affects the way we sing and also how we mouth our vowels.

For example, you can just try singing different vowels like Ooh and Eeh, and notice the difference in the position of the tongue.

You might discover that in an Eeh vowel, the tongue is significantly higher, as compared to when you sing the vowel Ooh.

Check out the URL below if you wish to read about other vocal exercises that allow you to explore and expand your voice:

Of course, we also need to differentiate between the back of the tongue and the front of the tongue, and varying their positions does also affect the way our vowels and our words sound.

For example, singing an Ah vowel with the back of the tongue low, and then with the back of the tongue raised, will most certainly change the tone and colour of the voice.

The tip of the tongue is also another important factor, because there are consonants like L, T, D, and N that require us to use the tip of the tongue in different ways.

I have a student who finds pronouncing the letter ‘R’ and ‘L’ so difficult, and that is because the tip of his tongue is not really totally in his control as yet!

Try singing a simple vowel (A, E, I, O, U) and then varying your tongue position while still making sure that the vowel is heard.

That will most certainly be the first step towards having a more varied and colorful voice!

Pitching Tip #24 – Tone Deafness

Today, I am inspired to write about tone deafness, after listening to a colleague of mine wrestle with his student’s tone problems.

After the lesson, he commented that the student was probably tone deaf, and just could not get the tone that was required.

I would personally rather think of the student as being tone-challenged, rather than tone deaf, because tone deafness really does mean something quite extreme.

It would mean that the person would be unable to even have different tones in his or her everyday speech, and only talks in a single tone or pitch, sounding very much like a human robot.

I do have some students who do have tone problems, but all it takes are some humming and listening exercises, and also guiding them to be able to produce pitches in different voice qualities, and they’re better already!

Perhaps all it takes is some patience, and also lots of hard work on the part of the student!

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

Another teacher of mine likes to tell us that ‘tone deaf’ people are really people with exceptional hearing.

This is because they can hear frequencies and pitches that normal people can’t hear, and that is why they tend to be led away by those pitches that they hear.

I find this really intriguing, and I would love to understand from tone-challenged people how they feel when they singing off-key, and what really goes through their minds.

Perhaps this is why I named my school ‘Intune Music School’. So that I could help those who have tone problems, and help them to overcome this challenge!
