Hello! 🙂

Thanks for all your likes and also for sharing the videos I’ve been sharing with you here on my website and my Facebook Page.  And thanks for the comments and also the messages in response to those Vlogs!

Speaking of which, I’ve been receiving lots of messages asking me about how to sing with better vocal connection. So, this is what this Vlog’s all about – if you’ve always had trouble singing smoothly through your vocal registers (your voice seems to be all over the place, or seems to be cracking/breaking all over the place as you sing),  this one’s for you!

Before I  carry on though, it’d be good to note that I have already created a very detailed singing lesson video on Vocal Connection here on my website. You can access that by subscribing to the 3 Free Singing Lesson Videos – for FREE, of course 🙂

Here in this video, I’ve shared 3 additional tips, to working on a better Vocal Connection.

First things first, when it comes to singing with better vocal connection, it really is all about singing more smoothly through your vocal registers. In other words, to be able to sing with a more seamless transition from one register to another.

As such, the first step to a more seamless transition would be to unlock & access all of your vocal registers to begin with!

STEP 1: Practice the Siren

A good way to do this is to practice the siren vocal exercise. This helps a singer get more acquainted with his/her vocal registers, all of them. As you are doing this exercise, make sure you pay attention to the sensations you are experiencing as you are doing it, otherwise, it’d be pointless 😉 The goal is to get yourself so familiar with where the voice has to be placed when singing in different vocal registers and to build muscle memory in singing through all of them seamlessly, as we do to get that siren effect. Check out the video to get a better idea.

STEP 2: Practice Songs That Will Make You Use More Vocal Registers

Instead of sticking to your comfort zone, singing only songs that sit comfortably in a particular part of your vocal range, sing songs that will “force” you to sing with more of your vocal registers. The only way to get better at having a seamless transition between your vocal registers is to strengthen ALL our vocal registers so that none is better than the other, but all are equally good (which makes for a consistent tone quality through out your full vocal range).  In the video, I picked DNCE’s “Toothbrush” as an example to practice using different vocal registers when singing. Try it out 🙂

STEP 3: Practice “Wow” For Better Vocal Positioning

Besides using the right vocal registers and allowing your voice to resonate in those various chambers, it is also important to practice good vocal positioning. This means to place your voice properly in your vocal mask, so that you have a better grip (or better vocal control) on those notes you wanna sing. It makes for a clearer tone quality & it also feels more comfortable and flexible for the voice to move up and down musically. When we practice the “wow”, we’re using a little bit of a twang, which helps us do all that. In songs of which you’re having a problem singing smoothly, try “wow-ing” those parts out first, and then try again with words after, using the same position that you used while “wow-ing” it out. It’s hard to explain how that would sound like here, which is why it’s best you check out the video instead.

I had a phone call come in at the end of the video – LOL. Next time I’ll remember to put my phone on silent!

Alright, I gotta go…if you’ve got any suggestions on what you’d like me to Vlog about next, post them below. Until then….happy singing!
