Becoming A Complete Singer

In Chapter One, she visits four singing teachers who are considered sages/gurus. To each one she poses the question: “What do I need to do in order to become a complete singer.” The answers are very interesting. What she learns stuns her. Learning to sing is not quite what she expected. This podcast is the first of a series on Chanteuse’s journey to become a complete singer. This chapter is free of charge.

What To Do When Your High Notes Go South

Let’s face it. It’s happened to everyone at some point. Even thinking of high notes can sometimes block the best of singers. We won’t even speak of the worst of singers who seem to specialize in “southern” high notes. Here’s a plot to fix those wayward creatures. 1. Count all the notes in your song. At the very least there will be several hundred. 2. Now count all the high notes. Ah, but before that you will have to determine exactly which notes are the high ones. Once you have found them, mark them in red ink with a big circle. 3. Now hit those notes. Hmmm…that did not work very well did it? But if I practice hitting them enough?……. No? 4. OK.. Try this. Put reminders that the high notes are coming in the next bar. That will give you fair warning! Oh No! You did what?! What’s that big black thing in your throat?           5. It’s better not to anticipate high notes. By now probably you have realised that high notes are better when they are not singled out for special attention. In most cases they are a small part of the whole song. Your brain follows your instructions and your thoughts very well. Sadly, for obvious reasons, some instructions are better not followed. The brain doesn’t know the difference so be careful what you ask it. 6. Treat all your notes as an integral part of the melody and not as things to be singled out. They are much happier that way. Have you ever heard anyone speak and only practice one word of a sentence more than the others? Doubt it....

Workshops

[rev_slider slider7] Coresinging Workshops CoreSinging® workshops incorporate all aspects of the human energy spectrum – physical, metaphysical, mental, emotional, psychological, psychic, spiritual – and emphasise fun, play and use of the imagination.  From the beginning, the teacher supports and encourages students to accept and enjoy their own sounds. Musical principles are gradually introduced along with the elements of play and imagination. Photographs of “The CoreSinging Experience” Singing Workshops , Colorado, USA [Show slideshow] There are four levels for students, each building on the other to create an exciting musical experience.
