DYNAMIC CONTROL FOR YOUR VOICE & PIANO PLAYING

Vocal And Piano Dynamics

The best singer and pianist know how to sustain dynamic control when they sing or play the piano. The proper musical language for dynamics is diminuendo (or decrescendo) for getter softer and crescendo for getting louder.

Dynamic Control For Singers

For professional singers using dynamics to strengthen their voice and performance is a matter of control. Dynamic vocal control requires practice regulating the vocal volume, impact and effect.

There are a few vocal exercises to strengthen your dynamic vocal control. For instance, singing scales or runs that start softly and build the volume as you go up and decrease the volume as you move back down the scales. You can do this with the Bubble (lip trills) or the R Roll (tongue trills) as well.

Another way to improve your vocal dynamic control is messa di voce which is an Italian phrase that means “place the voice.” You must sustain the note (stay on the same note) while starting soft and gradually grow louder.

Piano Dynamics

Playing dynamics on a piano is all about how quickly and firmly you connect with the keys. To create a louder sound play the keys quicker and firmer. To create a softer sound play the keys slower and softer.

Playing scales are a great way to work on playing the piano with dynamics. As you play the keys going up the scale gradually get louder. As you come back down the scale gradually get softer.

She had to buy a duet yourself kit.
