Technique vs. Style Approach To Singing

A common area of concern with new students is how technique will affect their current singing style. “As I gain technique, will I lose my personality or style?” In the True Connected Voice method, we do not teach style or personality. The key is good technique. Good vocal technique equals good vocal performance. The best way I can think of to erase this concern of losing your personality in your voice by developing your technique, is trying to relate an example with an instrument.

When you sit in front of a piano and you have 88 notes to play , a teacher can show you how to play these notes , then as an artist, you decide how to perform and stylisticly play these notes in what combinations and what feel.

In training your voice with this technique, you will absolutely expand your range , your flexibility , your consistency and develop your tone. So where you once only had a few notes to pick from in your vocal range, with training you will now have octives of range with ease and connection . After this development, you can sing in any style you wish in a healthy and connected voice.

At the True Connected Voice we are always available for one on one training and lessons, weather via Skype or if you are in Tampa FL, Orlando FL, or any of the surrounding Central Florida areas contact us today and unlock the true potential of your singing voice.

Proper Breathing Technique for Singers

In this video, Joe explains how to breathe with proper technique to give your vocal cords what it needs to produce sound.

The misconception many singers have is you have to push and over emphasize the use of a breathing muscle for support. The truth is, your vocal cords do not need much to create a nice sounding tone.

Pay attention to some of the keys Joe talks about in this video, in particular, the “singing with a candle in front of your voice” and “how babies breathe.”
