Vocalastics Singers Tip #2

#2 Listening
I believe that the number one rule in singing or band or theatre is listening. A singer has to listen to themselves as they are putting out sound, listen to the other singers and blend, listen to the musicians or track and blend with them. Listen for harmonies, harmonics, listen for conversation type interchange....listen to the birds, your heartbeat, your breathing, other people’s breathing, the sounds around you, the car motors, your loved ones words, other people...you get the idea...practice listening

Vocalastics Singer's Tips by Louise Lambert

 #1 Baby Cries
When a baby cries, notice the action in their belly. It is deep and strong and passionate! That intensity is in all of us, to cry out and be heard and not hurt our voices doing it!
Try crying your song. Put that little 'uh huh' cry in it. For an exercise, try crying the whole song, whine it, wail it , sniffle it, and you may find a strong, over the top gut feeling coming out. Then rein it in and just put enough cry in to make your song interesting and passionate. The Baby’s feeling is: “I want my milk, I want it now”... It is so important that they feel that their survival is at stake.
You can use that same passion! Cry it!
