Why Understanding Your Voice and How it SHOULD Work Is So Important for Singers

What I like about vocal training is that it is a practical business. No amount of theory will do the work—no-matter how detailed—unless you actually get down to doing the work. That being said, paying attention to instruction and listening to demonstration is the key to your success. There’s no point in allowing your mind to drift someplace else whilst you’re training, because chances are you will miss a thing or two. Unless of course you have been training for a while and so you’re already doing the scales with perfect form. This article will aim to show you the importance of understanding your voice, to truly become a great singer.

I’ve met and trained the drifters. Oftentimes, they would come away with nothing because nothing seems to sink in. Yes, vocal training is a practical business but at the end of the day if you’re not even paying attention to practical instruction then what else can you expect.

Here are a couple of details you need to pay particular attention to. You must hear the piano; your voice must respond according to what it hears in order to deliver those notes as it should be; and you must endeavor to understand the correct way of using your voice in tune with the music. Oftentimes I find myself saying, you must get inside the music and that you should avoid trying to simulate the notes you deliver to the piano. Instead, you must deliver them as they should be, with more of an edge sound and power behind the note. A simulated tone is more like trying to sound like the piano but not quite there yet. This sort of tone will allow your voice to fall apart unceremoniously—meaning you’re really failing to hold a note. Aim to deliver your notes with a fuller voice in speech level posture.

In Summary: If you’ve heard the example, try and do it exactly as demonstrated. Don’t go out all guns blazing doing your own thing. Do it exactly as demonstrated. The only reason we do these vocal exercises is to help develop your voice. So stay in line. Make sure your chest voice is connecting to your head voice. That way you’ll develop a well connected speech level posture that’ll bring out your true voice in all its radiant glory.
