The techniques between singing and talking is vastly different. You probably have heard people, in the karaoke, who are simply reading back the lyrics into the microphone as if they are having an oral examination and not singing.
In talking, it is more direct with a heavier and thicker tonality and not much of any control, though we can follow the pitch and hitting the rhythm of the song correctly using our talking voice, but it will just sound that you are just reading the lyrics and not singing the song.
This phrase “You need to add more emotions.”, you have might heard it multiple times but what exactly is adding more emotions?
Basically, is to include more gentleness into your talking tone! It is still vague, isn’t it?
Let’s say, you are being sympathetic to child who just dropped a whole newly bought ice cream cone with the saddest look in their eyes, you probably will go, “awww, that is so sad.”
Now, include that tone into your singing, then it will bring out more variety in your tone, instead of just simply reading back the lyrics.
There are several drills for you to practice at your own!
0:11) Practicing on your “u” vowel, as though
- “Youuuuuuu~” instead of just “You.”
0:35) Practicing using “MEW” as though you are playing with a cat
- “Mew Mew Mew ~”
Watch the video below to find more exactly how to do the drills!
Feel and remember what are you experiencing when you are doing those drills as you are actually shifting a certain part of your vocal anatomy in order to achieve that and then use that to apply on your singing session!
