The Psychology of Singing!

The Psychology Of Singing – Video Lecture

A great video lecture on the psychology of singing by Robert Lunte, founder of The Vocalist Studio International.

The psychology of singing: students of singing spend a lot of time chasing the physiology involved in singing technique. This approach neglects the need to better understand the role that the acoustics of singing play in helping a singer’s voice transcend to new levels of world class excellence. Beyond the acoustics, there is another realm of consideration, the mental programming of singing: the psychology of singing. Mental programming involves how you use visualization to influence the acoustics of singing, which then calibrates the physiology of great singing. In short, a chain reaction that starts with proper mental imagery, moves to tune the proper acoustics for singing, which in turn, configures the physiology required for a high performance phonation. In this video Robert Lunte, author and producer of “The Four Pillars of Singing” discusses and demonstrates the importance of beginning every singing note with proper imagery. One particular problem that singers create for themselves is constantly referring to their struggle to sing higher frequencies as “Hitting a High Note”. This is creating a problem for singers, watch this video and learn why this is a problem and how proper imagery and the psychology of singing can solve it.

Mental Programming & The Visualisation Of Singing

Mental programming involves how you use visualization to influence the acoustics of singing, which then calibrates the physiology of great singing.

Onsets And Sirens – Building a Foundation for Singing

Onsets And Sirens : Build Amazing Strength
And Coordination In Your Singing Voice

Singing Lessons : Onsets And Sirens - Building a Foundation for Singing

Robert Lunte explains the benefits of training onsets and sirens

There is no better way to train your phonation package deep inside your muscle memory than a slow and controlled siren through every micro-tone of your voice.

Practicing with sirens works directly to build super, high performance vocal coordination. Practicing slow and controlled sirens prevents you from cheating and skipping over the hard parts in your voice, such as the Passaggio and low head tones.

Skipping over the hard parts and avoiding what is difficult is not what TVS is about. TVS training is about hunkering down and putting yourself right into the “hard stuff”.

I do expect you to master each of these vocalizes, as each has a unique objective to help you build amazing strength and coordination in your voice. But, at the end of the day, those are only relevant if the foundation is solid. The core of your vocal strength and coordination begins with the onsets and sirens.

Embouchure : What Is It? – Singing Lessons

Embouchure Definition : Jaw, Lips & Teeth

The embouchure Embouchure - What Is It ?is a French word we use to describe the following physical components of singing; jaw, lips and teeth.

Beginning students are not used to opening their mouths wide enough for singing. Spending a life time in speech mode, means your mouth is used to only opening up for what is necessary for speaking, but when you sing, you need to open the mouth in a specialized way.

Remember, the way we use our voice when speaking is NOT how the voice is being used when singing.

Video: What Is The Embouchure ?


Embouchure In Singing

The embouchure for singing is a totally new and exotic physical configuration. When singing, generally speaking, try to drop your jaw and expose the canines, or the upper teeth. Also, keep your tongue forward.

Always lift your top lip to expose your canines or upper teeth and plant your tongue forward, lightly pressing the tip of your tongue, against the back of your bottom teeth. This is the general position you need to remain in, when singing all the time, especially high notes.

If you do not maintain a good embouchure when singing, your voice will constrict, break, and a whole series of problems will unfold in your lap.

2 TVS Embouchure Positions

There are two embouchure positions in TVS Methodology, the horizontal embouchure and the vertical embouchure, both are explained in this video. The #1, most important thing you need to learn to do during your first week of training TVS is to practice in the mirror, to learn how to shape and maintain your embouchure.

This lecture is one of 40 lectures available in the popular TVS vocal training system, “The Four Pillars of Singing”. To learn more about TVS techniques and “The Four Pillars of Singing” method including everything you need to know about embouchure, follow this link >>

Alice In Chains Rooster Tribute: The importance of the “Yarl” Vocal Effect

Layne Staley was a very talented and gifted singer. One aspect of his singing that is interesting in regards to voice technique, is that Layne was one of the singers from the 90s that utilized a vocal effect we refer to at TVS as “The Yarl”. Other artists such as Eddie Vedder of “Pearl Jam” and Scott Weiland of “Stone Temple Pilots” also were known to use this effect from time to time as part of their signature sound and style. “The Yarl” tend creates additional overtones in the harmonic color when singing that tends to create an interesting, “blues” or a mouthy aesthetic. The added overtones produced by “The Yarl” will typically brighten the harmonic sound color of a voice as well. INn simple terms, it is a technique that can add a lot of new color options to your singing and open the possibility of greatly expanding the stylistic options available to a singer.

In this tribute performance, Robert Lunte demonstrates “The Yarl” vocal effect as well as world-class bridging of registers and head voice connectivity.

Deep Purple - Child in Time Tribute - Robert Lunte

In this Child in Time Tribute, Robert Lunte performs one of the most iconic heavy metal songs ever created.

“Child in Time” was written by Deep Purple and originally performed by Ian Gillan.

Let’s explore some of the advanced vocal techniques Ian Gillian used to make Child In Time such an iconic success: watch the video below to see Robert Lunte demonstrate and read the vocal analysis below for a break down of how these vocal effects are achieved.

 

Video: Deep Purple – Child In Time Tribute Performance By Robert Lunte

Child In Time Tribute – Vocal Techniques

This performance features a higher laryngeal position and a subtle amount of vocal fold compression to lighten the harmonic color. The screams feature a partially relaxed vocal folds (Glottis) with increased sub-glottal respiration pressure to engage bernoulli fold closure. In simple terms, the connected sound in the screams is achieved by creating a vaccum between the vocal folds from increased respiratory velocity, which is more efficient and less fatiguing then closing the vocal folds with twang compression.

The more efficient, but more advanced technique of glottal respiratory bleed achieves two advantages not found by twanging;

1). It is less fatiguing, and

2). It removes the “quacky” aesthetic that can happen when singers sing high notes.

Mastering the balance of vocal fold compression with sub-glottal respiratory pressure is also a configuration that enables TVS Overlay Distortion techniques. Learn more about the TVS Method, click HERE:

The Two TVS Microphone Grips!

Microphone Grips : How To Hold The Microphone

The way singers grip the microphone is a worthy consideration that is rarely discussed. At TVS, students are encouraged to train and sing with one of two TVS microphone grips. The primary benefit of adopting these microphone grips is it reduces the risk of “tension creep” or unwanted musculature cramping and constriction that will take over a singer’s ability to sing more freely. In addition to these microphone grips, ergonomics is an important consideration when purchasing a hand held microphone. Microphones with ‘hour glass’ shapes to them as demonstrated in this video, are designed to fit the singer’s hand more comfortably.

The Microphone Grips Demonstrated By Robert Lunte

 

Microphone proximity is the distance from the microphone element, or diaphragm to the lips. Too often, singers hold the microphone too far from the mouth. When you sing with a microphone, make sure that the microphone is close to the grill or mesh of the microphone. Singing with a close proximity to the microphone diaphragm will really make a microphone come alive and its the best way to maximize its performance.

Try these unique microphone grips and improve your singing immediately.
