The benefits of the singing

BY MADISYN TAYLOR

The act of singing is one of the easiest ways to raise the vibration of your body as you harmonize with the universe.

Singing is an act of vibration. It takes music from the realm of the unformed — whether that is in your mind or from that magical space of inspiration — and moves it from within to without. From the first breath singing moves the energy in a circular way inside your body. As the breath fills your lungs, it brushes against the second and third chakras — the centers of creation and honoring self and others. Instead of merely exhaling, pushing the air past the fourth and fifth chakras where heart chakra and the center of will and intention reside, singing engages both the heart and mind. Sound vibrations from vocal cords resonate in the sinus cavities, filling the head with motion and sound while the brain lights up with the processing of the mathematics of music. This marriage of activities brings the third eye into play and opens the door for inspiration from the crown chakra before sending the sound out into the world.

Once the vibration begins, it is sustained with each note, moving throughout your body and the space around you. This can help you to harmonize your frequency with the world and with the divine. The use of the voice can bring about catharsis, a cleansing from the expression of emotion, which is why we feel better after singing certain types of songs. All of this occurs even if we are not conscious of what we are singing, but when we really connect with an intention, the power of the voice and music together are powerful tools in creation.

Even if you are not a singer by nature or talent, you are not left out. If you have a voice, it is your birthright to celebrate life with song. It doesn’t matter if you don’t feel you have a nice voice. Chanting or humming, singing solo or with others, your voice is yours to enjoy. Whether you sing along to the radio or use vocalization as part of your meditation time, singing and harmonizing are healing activities that bring your body’s vibrations into alignment with the universe

My recent interview to The Telegraph

I am excited to share with you my recent interview to The Telegraph (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/health-fitness/body/adeles-transformation-singer-slimmed-changed-up-look/) After Vasili Karpiak, an opera singer who has worked with the Royal Opera House, lost weight he found his voice changed. “I realised it’s not my voice any more and I need a different technique.
“The voice does change [when you lose weight], simply speaking from physiology. The body has one size and the vibration, the sound and colour is applicable to that size, when you lose a lot of weight you get a different colour.
“You get a different space for the sound frequencies that are created as a result of the vocal cords, there is less space for the vibration process.”
However, it’s not all bad news: “The stamina of the voice will increase, and if anything I think it has a positive influence on the artist.”

GREAT VOCAL EXERCISES FOR CLASSICAL SINGERS.

For classical singers it’s really important to build up a good foundation of vocal technique, breathing, sound projection, vocal attack, coloratura, phrasing  and many other technical tools. Undoubtedly, one of the best ways to achieve this goal is to practice vocal exercises or so called, vocalises during your singing lessons.  Here below I have listed links to the vocal exercises/ vocalises which are most popular and efficient in the world of classical singing. Have patience and explore them while you are on the path of making your voice better. Patience is needed. Some of them are written for low voices, some of them are written for high voices. Some can be applied to any voice. Don’t rush, take step-by-step, make yourself familiar with the melody, find vocal accompaniment online, nowadays it’s so easy, for example, on YouTube. Try to listen to other singers who are singing the same piece.

 After singing 4 to 6 exercises, for sure, you will start to gain confidence, sensation of security and good sound projection. Additionally, you will start to extend your musical horizons, because , normally, vocalises are written in different tempo, with different vocal range (normally, it’s becoming bigger, once you are progressing)etc.  If you want to make your singing lessons indeed efficient, trust me, vocalises are extremely important.
