SIMPLIFY YOUR SINGING FOR BETTER CONTROL
Simplifying your singing will help you on your way to becoming an excellent singer. You will be able to sing with more consistency and control. You will have a lot less fear of messing up. Many professional singers just go for it without overthinking thing. Sometimes a client will get so caught up hitting many notes and overthink things. Pull back and make it simple and see what you come up with.
You need to enunciate clearly, try not to mumble or sing with your mouth barely open. To prevent that, you will need to practice. You articulators like the tongue, teeth, lips and soft palate need to be warmed up and flexible. Try and use phrases like “Peter Piper Picked A Peck of Pickled Peppers” helps to loosen up your articulators. If an audience cannot understand a particular part of a song, you will lose their connection because they are now trying to figure out what you just sang and now the connection is lost.
It’s important to be in the moment when you are playing a song on the piano, but it’s even more important to be in the moment when you are a singing a song. You need to conserve your energy for the parts of a song that creates a vocal challenge. Make the simplified parts of the song more about an emotional feeling. Once you’ve simplified the song, you can map out where you would do the ad-libs. Choose the dramatic moments for ad-libbing (runs and riffs). Be in the moment of the words instead of embellishing it all. MC (Marie Claire) De Martino performing “You And I” simple and beautiful!
