ADD EXCITEMENT WITH CRESCENDO & DECRESCENDO

The crescendo is when a singer or pianist gradually increases the volume (getting louder) and decrescendo, also known as diminuendo (diminishing), is the exact opposite, you gradually get softer. Crescendo is an Italian word which translates to “grow louder.” Crescendo and decrescendo are also part of the dynamics in a song.

Music rarely stays at a consistent measure of sound (volume) throughout a song. An orchestra may start the first movement in forte (which is loud) and decrease in volume after a while. While rock music can start off softly and gradually build in volume. Have you ever noticed how the music gradually builds to a very loud volume for a scary movie. Why? To create emotion and feeling for the scene. The wider the dynamic range, the larger the dramatic impact.

Crescendo and decrescendo create the same impact when you sing or play the piano. The rise and fall in your voice as you singing creates a sense of mood and emotional impact for the listener. To really make your voice shine and stand out, work on the dynamic shifts in your voice. The loudness and softness shift can be in one word, a phrase or section of a song.

Whether you are singing or playing the piano, you want to keep your audience’s attention and make a connection with them by using dynamics (crescendo and decrescendo). This helps a song breath, build, and adds variety to your performance. The crescendo and decrescendo will add meaning, emotion, and color to the what you are singing or playing.
