Tips for Singers

The biggest difficulty with learning to sing in tune is that if you do not have a good sense of pitch, you might not know when you aren’t in tune. The solution is to start off slowly, singing one pitch at a time and trying to match a recorded pitch as perfectly as possible. Here are the steps to learning how to sing in tune.

Play a single note on a synthesizer or piano. Try to sing that pitch.

Listen for a beat frequency. If you are completely in tune with the note, your voice and the tone together will combine into one single tone. If you are slightly too high or too low in pitch, you will hear a beat frequency–a slight wavering in the pitch. Raise or lower your tone slightly until the beat frequency slows and stops.

The tenor is the higher male vocal part in musical arrangements. Most choirs or singing groups are broken into at least four part harmony. Often there are even tenor 1 and tenor 2 sections, with tenor 1 singing a slightly higher range.   Here are some tips to help you sing tenor. Locate a keyboard. The vocal range of a tenor stretches from the “C” below “Middle C” to the “C” above “Middle C.” Find those notes on the keyboard. If you are not familiar with pianos, find a friend who is musically inclined and they will be able to point it out to you. Try different vocal exercises to determine if you are a tenor.

Before you jump right into singing tenor in a song, you’ve got to make sure you’re not a bass (the other male part.) Play the keys in the vocal range and try and match your voice to the tone. While you probably won’t be able to get all of the notes, (especially the high ones) you should be able to hit a majority of them.

Breathe correctly. Not only will this allow you to control your breath properly, but it will also improve the sound that comes out of you. When most people breathe casually, they only pull the air into their chest without using their diaphragm. Breathing with your diaphragm is crucial. This is the muscle at the base of your lungs that expands them. To make sure you’re breathing correctly, keep your posture straight and place your hands on your abdomen. When you inhale, your stomach should rise, not your chest. Figure out which kind of voice you have. Basically, if you’re a man with a very deep voice, you’re a bass. Men with higher-pitched voices are tenors, and those with ranges in the middle are baritones. Women with high-pitched voices are sopranos, while those on the lower end are altos.

 

The kind of tone your voice has also determines which kinds of arias you can sing. If you have a crisp, clear tone, you are probably better suited to comic parts. With a gruffer tone, you might be better suited to more dramatic roles. Voice teachers and coaches are valuable resources for anyone who wants to learn how to sing. If you’re interested in singing pop music, however, you can get away without having an instructor. Pop music’s simplicity and accessibility allows you to perform it well enough on your own, saving you the time and money that formal lessons consume.
