There are many different theories on music. We feel the important is passion. We have gotten into soooo many conversations with other vocalists and came up with these important factors of singing.
- Breathing – Haaaaa, Yeah it sounds awkward but breathe in a right way. Just like Pranayama in Indian yoga--- The process of deep Inhaling and exhaling will help you to breathe in an appropriate manner, which will not only help in singing but in normal lives too. It is beneficial to asthma patients.
- Pitch--- Many of the singers did not hit all the notes but try their best to be mindful of pitch. Don’t afraid to go for the note even if it’s out of range.
- Tone --- Your tone is the unique sound of your voice given by god. Whether it’s raspy, or pure or a certain twang. In classical music, having the same tone as the person next to you can be valuable in choir setting. The classical music, coach will tell you : where it needs to be fixed. You can use what you got. There is nothing wrong in that.
- Vowel Placement— This is something most people don’t think of when they are singing. It can be very technical. There are different places to ‘put’ a vowel when singing the notes. These are the sort of things you want to ask your coach. It could be your defining factor.
- Phrasing --- It’s how you make the notes move with the music using breathe, and dynamics. Where you breathe, how loud and soft you are. The easiest way to explain it is you wouldn’t breathe in the middle of the word. The same thing in music as a larger definition.
- Passions – This is biggest one. If you don’t feel the emotions then what’s the point in having lyrics. There are many singers who don’t have wonderful voices but can always sing with emotions. Take it personally make the lyrics become a part of you, whether you wrote them or not.
