Improve your singing with better 'PHRASING!' Often the difference between the amateur singer and the professional vocalists is 'phrasing.' In this tutorial, Dr Dan identifies three important areas of phrasing that will improve your singing: dynamic emphasis, onsets & offsets, and the line of the phrase.
0:19 What is 'Phrasing?' Quite simply phrasing is the “doing” of a phrase. Every song is made up of a collection of sentences or phrases. And the way you sing the phrase determines how the phrase is heard and interpreted by your audience.
1:15 Dynamic Emphasis Just like in the spoken version, moving the point of dynamic emphasis changes up the interpretation of the phrase.
2:01 Onsets & Offsets An onset is the way your voice commences sound and the offset is the way your voice finishes the sound.
3:18 Line of the Phrase When we talk about the line we’re referencing the sense of literary flow when combined with the sonic values of the melody.
4:27 Listen to the Professionals One more thing, I highly recommend listening to the great singers in your favourite music genre. For example, if you love pop, listen to Ed Sherin and Katy Perry. If you love Jazz, listen to Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald.

And a small side note (because I'm asked a lot): It is important to note that while I hold a doctorate (thus I am Dr Dan), I am not a medical doctor, and the advice provided in this video is generalised information only. Therefore you should always consult with your licensed health care professional for personalised advice about your vocal health and well-being. #DrDan
