How to improve my singing ability?

A, intonation,

1. Listening to music

When learning to sing, if you want to improve your intonation, then you have to create a good learning environment for yourself. In addition to practicing basic skills every day, we should also listen to more songs. When listening to songs, we should listen attentively, feel the melody bit by bit, and hum while listening, which can effectively improve our sense of music.

2. Learn more about music theory

Music is full of fun, interest is the best teacher, we usually have time to learn some of the theoretical basis of vocal music, learning some marks in the simple spectrum, rest and so on. Music knowledge is rich, when singing can better grasp the sense of rhythm and accuracy of music.

3. Master an instrument

No matter what musical instrument, we had better learn one, so it will be very helpful for us to practice intonation. If we want to learn a musical instrument, we need to master some basic knowledge of simple music. ​Local music learning can be said to be lifelong learning.

4. Consult a professional

​can learn to sing at ordinary times, multidirectional professional advice, the other party does not need to have more professional, as long as it is an experienced teacher in the field of vocal music, can help us to improve the intonation, can also sing some songs for the teachers more at ordinary times, let the teacher find in time our problems, in order to improve their singing skills.

5. Practice your vocal skills

​Usually I should master and understand some small skills of voice. In this way, we can not only reach the standard of intonation, but also integrate some rich vocal effects to enrich our voice, so that the singing will appear more professional and full of artistic sense.

6. Sing to the accompaniment

If you are singing with poor intonation and can't find the key, you can sing with the accompaniment of music in addition to singing scales with the help of Musical Instruments. For unfamiliar songs, you can also turn on the original sound to sing, until you are completely familiar with the song and then turn off the original singing, follow the rhythm to practice intonation, so that it is not easy to go out of tune.

Second, the rhythm

1. Rhythmic exercises

With the rhythm of the rest of the exercise will cause inner tension, in the training to overcome the inner tension, with the usual mentality to face it, do not encounter this rhythm will disrupt the original speed. We should pay attention to the stability of the sense of inner speed, strengthen the sense of inner feeling of rhythm. When practicing it, you can recite the time of rest in your mind, so that the practitioner can grasp the time of rest more accurately.

The appearance of syncopation will change the law of the strength of the beat. When practicing syncopation, it should be noted that in the beat where the syncopation is, the first note is not stressed, but the stress is transferred to the second note, so the appearance of the second note is strong compared with other notes in the beat.

Rhythmic patterns are often found in music, such as * *. , x. And so on. For the time value of the attached point, we tend to ignore, often in the case of the time value of the attached point is not extended enough to stop, over time will develop the bad habit of stopping without the continuation of enough time value. It will also affect the characteristics of the rhythm type in the music and affect the performance of the music, so we must extend the time value of the point enough.

In the practice of linking, the rhythm of the linking will show its uniqueness within the inherent beat. When practicing, pay attention to the time value of the beat, distribute the length evenly within the fixed time value, and pay more attention to its connection with other rhythms.

2. Practice rhythm

Rhythm training can start by developing a sense of rhythm. For example, use a metronome to practice counting beats. Practice by mouth counting the beats with the metronome first, one beat one note, one beat two notes, one beat three notes, and one beat four notes. Then practice walking or running by counting the balanced commands by yourself. In this way, it is easy to make the balanced rhythm feel firmly in my heart, and I can have a sense of balanced speed and rhythm in my heart. This is the basis of rhythm training, which can lay a good foundation for learning rhythm.​

Rhythm training can also be incorporated into recitation. We live in a language environment, language itself contains a rich, vivid rhythm. from the language rhythm to mastering the rhythm of music is relatively easy. We should start from the rhythm of reading. Such as: rhythmically read some simple poetry, lyrics, or improvised speak some rhythmic words, and at the same time read out the rhythm of the hand

Such as rhythmically reading poetry: × ×. XXX - | x. X x |

By day, the mountains end and the Yellow River enters the sea,

X x. XXX - | x. X x |

To a poor thousand miles, a higher level.

This not only carries on the rhythm practice, but also cultivates the word creation ability, but at the same time also experiences the rhythm sense. In the process of rhythm training, you can also add basic command gestures, which will be of great help to the training of rhythm sense. For example, while reading the rhythm with the mouth, beat the rhythm with the hand, and make sure that the speed of each beat is consistent, start with slow speed practice, slowly accelerate practice, and make sure that the strong beat is more obvious than the weak beat. This way, on the one hand, students can read out the standard speed required by each rhythm correctly, and at the same time, it is helpful to the cultivation of musical expression.

Three, and the breath

1. Chest breathing

On inhalation, the chest expands outward, and on exhalation, the chest shortens inward, with the inspiratory volume in the middle. Most of my friends who have not learned singing skills will use this method to sing. In fact, this method is still wrong, it can not support the long tone.

2. Abdominal breathing

On the inhale, the abdomen is pushed down and out, and on the exhale, the abdomen is pulled in and up. This is a kind of deep breathing that uses the shortening of the abdominal muscles and pressure to increase the volume of inspiration and the depth of breathing. The abdominal muscles shorten, increasing abdominal pressure, which pushes the diaphragm upward, adding pressure to the chest cavity and forcing the lungs to exhale air. Abdominal breathing is much better than either of these methods, but this method does not control the breath very flexibly, and the voice tends to be stiff.

3. Chest and abdomen breathing

It's a combination of chest breathing and abdominal breathing, and there's a diaphragm between the chest and the lungs and the abdomen, and breathing is controlled by the diaphragm. If the diaphragm can be used when inhaling, the inspiratory volume can be greater, and the use of breath is more flexible. Personally, it is recommended to sing with the method of chest and abdomen breathing.

Four, skill,

1. The tremolo

Vibrato is the use of breath and Adam's apple with cooperation, so that the sound produces a sense of fluctuation, fluctuation. This is one of the most common techniques used in ballads.

There are many kinds of trails. For example, Zhou Huajian's tremolo amplitude is moderate, not small; Qi Qin loves to use small fibrillations; Teresa Teng and Jacky Cheung are known for their big quivers. Japanese songs are characterized by "first straight and then fibrillation", that is, after singing a piece of straight tone, and then starting to tremble, the amplitude from small to large, the frequency from slow to fast, which requires kung fu.

Many friends do not know this skill, do not be discouraged, it can be practiced. The key is the breath and larynx to cooperate well, do not only use the larynx, issued a similar sheep cry of small tremble.

2. Air

When making a sound, if the air comes out before the sound, more air and less sound will be made. It makes the song more charming, more touching. The first verse of Teresa Teng's "On the Water Side" and the first verse of Amnesia Lam's "Falling in Love with Someone Who doesn't Come Home" are also typical of air singing.

3. KuQiang

The crying voice is one of the most popular techniques in popular singing. It consists of making a wailing sound with a burst of force between the throat and the breath. Jacky Cheung, Zhou Huajian is the representative figure of a crying voice. Cry with good can increase the appeal of the song, but also can not be used too much.
