Sharp singing is when you go for a note but land a little bit too high, which is a hurdle for many singers.
So today I will answer your question: “What do I do if my singing is consistently sharp?”
In this video, you will learn some powerful approaches that will help fix your pitch and make it much more accurate.
Notes are like circles, and your pitch can move up and down the circle. When you’re singing a note, you’re creating a tone that is round. If you’re used to landing sharp, aim at the bottom of the note’s “circle.” This will help “average out” the pitch.
Stay grounded. Literally, stay connected to the ground and remember your lower body! Pitch often reflects your energy and focus. If you're nervous or “floating up” into your head, your pitch can start to drift upward, too. Remember, singing involves your whole body!
Your breath support is your pitch buddy! Thrust your focus down to the lower part of your...
Hi friends! My latest singing tips video is short 'n' simple and offers a really easy way that you can take your singing practice into your own hands - and make huge progress, fast.
When it comes to learning and teaching yourself how to sing, it's all about harnessing the power of VISUAL CUES and "face shapes."
Singing can be super confusing if you think of it as an infinite number of sounds and possibilities. But if, instead, you memorize (1) where you feel the sound in your face, (2) and what that shape "looks like" to you in your mind, you'll start to internalize and memorize technique MUCH MUCH FASTER!
It also gives you an excuse to watch tons of YouTube videos of singers performing - oftentimes the way their faces LOOK can give you valuable clues about their singing technique and how they're creating their singer sound.
Hope this is helpful!
My new singing tips video is called How to Sing "Problem" by Ariana Grande! "Problem" is a high, fast, non-stop belting extravaganza -- but it becomes much less of a "Problem" if you know how to keep the words forward in the "mask" section of your face (see what I did there).
This video takes each lyric, breaks it down, and rewrites it with crazy "singer voodoo" phrasing listed for you on the screen, so you know exactly how to approach the lyrics with a relaxed, open throat and pingy, forward belty placement.
The trick with vowel mods is that they SOUND the same to the listener but are ultra singer friendly and much easier to place. I would NEVER be able to sing "Problem" if I took the lyrics at face value and didn't take time to rewrite every line. And the same goes for any song I've ever belted.
Please leave comments or questions, and share with friends who love Ariana Grande, love to sing, or who are curious about the bizarre workings of singer voodoo!!
|I heart you, Katy Perry|
The other day, while singing along to "Dark Horse" in the car, which I do constantly, (I'm obsessed) I realized I wanted to know exactly what Katy Perry does to sound so distinctive and awesome. So I decided to listen to some of her most popular tracks (over...and over...and over...) and figure out exactly what she does, from a technical standpoint, when she delivers a song. The video below -- "How to Sing Like Katy Perry" -- is perfect for singers who are hoping to emulate elements of her signature style, or use her vocal choices as a jumping off point (or if you just want to straight-up copy her...!).
Not gonna lie... I'm super excited about this video.
Katy Perry is obviously a hugely popular and successful singer-songwriter with legions of fans and tons of hits. But she's also an impressive vocal technician who has developed a rich, interesting, and distinctive sound.
After I finished editing the video, I realized that it also helped...
