The Weird Secret That Will Show You
HOW TO SING IF YOU CAN’T SING
Let me tell you something that few other vocal coaches will tell you:
I was a TERRIBLE singer.
I couldn’t sing a high note to save my live, my voice was tired and hoarse, I hated how I sounded and I could barely sing the first line of most of my favourite songs even an octave down from the original key.
“Hold on, hold on – are you telling me that you’re a singing teacher who WASN’T a natural to begin with? “
“Hang on, hang on – aren’t you supposed to be telling us just how AWESOME you are and how you’re BETTER than everyone else?”
No – because that’s bullshit.
There’s a super powerful reason that you’re struggling to sing, and it’s the same reason why others out there make it look so damn easy – and it has nothing to do with marketing terms like Open Throat, Curbing, Edge, Speech Singing or joining some Guru-Vocal-Academy.
You have an intrinsic misunderstanding about one vocal fact:
Singing is EASY.
I know, I know – singing ISN’T easy for you currently, and you’re struggling and straining just like I did many years ago.
But I’ll venture a guess right now that you feel like singing is HARD – and you’ve never sat down to practice or sing a song with the overwhelming feeling that it’s easy to sing, and that you’re absolutely going to nail it first go.
I know – it’s easy for me to say “be confident” and “singing is easy” when I really AM confident about my singing abilities, and singing really IS easy for me now; but this is honestly 3/4 of the battle you’re facing right now as a crap singer.
You see, 3/4 of the vocal mechanism is actually involuntary – meaning, you can’t physically flex your left vocal fold on command. You can’t just engage the diaphragm at will. You can’t just sing a good frequency. You can’t just make your folds vibrate faster, or thicker, or thinner – or with less strain.
So that pesky little voice in your head telling you that “this note is about to suck” and “I can’t sing this high” is turning into a self fulfilling prophecy – because that’s the psychological cue that you’re giving the involuntary aspects of your vocal mechanism – and I’ll venture a guess that it really DOES suck when you sing, and you really DO miss that high note every time.
And that’s why you’ve been having so much trouble learning how to sing – you’ve practiced the exercises, you’ve bought the courses, you’ve probably even taken singing lessons on and off for years.
But the way you’re communicating with your voice is simply WRONG.
Which is why “natural” singers who never really learned proper vocal technique sound GREAT, while you, who has spent tens of thousands of hours practicing lip trills still sounds like crap half the time.
They tell their involuntary vocal mechanism that they’re going to sound great when they sing – so they do.
And you tell your involuntary vocal mechanism that you’re going to suck – so you do.
Alright, Alright – we get the picture. Tonal intention and confidence are the SUPER important, mega SECRET key to great singing; and matched with excellent technique and a rock solid vocal foundation, will make you a seriously powerhouse singer who nails those high notes every. single. time. you. sing.
But what do you do if your voice really DOES suck, and you don’t have good technique – so there’s absolutely no WAY for you to feel confident and give your voice those positive cues that it needs to help you move forward as a singer?
You need to develop your vocal foundation so there is no DOUBT that you’re going to hit that high notes, that there’s no DOUBT that you’re going to sound awesome and there’s no DOUBT about singing in key, with a great tone, and with an enviable range.
But I’m not just going to shove some course in your face or wave some fancy marketing term in your face – I honestly think that kind of marketing-centric vocal coaching is dead, so I’m just going to show you right now how to improve your vocal foundation using The Four Vocal Fundamentals.
