Connecting Emotion and Technique Through Vocal Training Lessons

Simple vocal training lessons can help you connect technique and emotionDo you enjoy singing? It’s something we all do naturally. We may just sing to ourselves because we’re happy or we may sing to entertain others or even make singing our career.

If you’re in the first category, you may not have considered taking vocal training lessons. They could really help you get the best out of your voice and teach you techniques to increase your enjoyment of singing.

If you have any singing experience, you’ll realise that there’s so much more to it than just producing notes in sequence. You want to produce a rich, warm sound. It’s not easy to train yourself to do this, so working with a professional teacher who can guide you towards the correct vocal techniques is really valuable.

As well as learning technique, by taking a course of vocal training lessons, you’ll also learn:

  • How to maximise the attractiveness of your voice
  • How to use and convey emotion when you sing
  • Develop the use of your vocal register
  • Use vocal variations, such as vibrato and vocal fry

Vocal Lesson Plans – What Does Vibrato Mean?

Vibrato is the fluctuation of notes which make your voice sound more vibrant without trembling, and it has a lot to do with the control of your breath. Once you’ve had some vocal training lessons, you’ll be able to control whether you produce a vibrato effect or not depending on whether it suits the song you’re singing: by varying the pitch of your voice and using vibrato, you’ll be adding much more emotion to your performance.

What is a Chest Voice?

 

 

One of the things you’ll learn from vocal training lessons is about the different vocal registers (qualities of tone) – you may hear them referred to as your chest voice and your head voice.

Your chest voice is produced by the thicker part of your vocal cords and the sound can be felt as a vibration in your throat or chest.

What is a Head Voice?

 

 

The tone of your head voice has a lighter quality and when you use it to sing, you won’t feel anything in your chest. It’s produced using the thinner part of your vocal cords which tend to vibrate more quickly than those which make up your chest voice. When you sing using your head voice, the sound quality should be very clear and your voice will carry further than when you sing with your chest voice.

When you sing using a balance between your chest voice and your head voice, this is called a mixed voice. When you’re singing, you need to be able to move smoothly (make a transition) between registers so that you don’t feel any strain when doing it.

 

Using the Right Vocal Training Lessons

Using vocal training exercises is an ideal way of mastering the technique needed and will be something that your teacher will help you to focus on. The vocal concepts described above will be much easier to understand and work on with the help of a teacher, but you can also learn about these concepts through online vocal lessons.

As you listen to your favorite singers, notice how they bring emotion to their singing. If you work on your technique through vocal training lessons, you’ll improve the quality and personality of your voice and you’ll be able to sing with plenty of emotion too.
