SOUND YOUR BEST BY DEVELOPING EXCELLENT TECHNIQUE!

Whether it is singing or playing the piano, using good technique is a skillful way of executing a song.  Technique deals with the concept of tone, musicality and expression in your performance. To sing with emotion and lack technique can result in an unstable sound creating cracks and lack of control. When you learn to sing the correct way, your voice becomes stronger, you will also have vocal control and gain the freedom to express a song exactly the way you want to. Good piano technique will allow you to skillfully execute a song with a masterful sound.

Proper vocal technique allows singers to produce a warm, rich sound that is conducive to achieving a good vocal performance. Your posture, breath & diaphragm control, keeping your throat and tongue relaxed, do not let throat muscles constrict (close up), moving from one register to another with ease, belting and more. All of these things will produce consistently good vocal sound. Relax your facial muscles: release tension in the lips, tongue and jaw. Having a relaxed face helps you to sing the high notes as well as hitting the low notes. Try a huge yawn to stretch your jaw.

Piano technique is the ability to create the right sound at the right time with the piano. It is the ability to understand the music and your interaction with the piano. Proper piano technique is not just about playing the right keys. Technique is about the way you sit (posture), how you drop your fingers onto the piano keys (which affect the sound of the piano), hand posture, executing slurs, staccatos, dynamics and articulation . Correct posture and sitting position will allow you to translate energy from your entire body to the fingertips. There are lots of exercises books you can buy to strengthen your technique. Work on your scales, chords & inversions of the chords, arpeggios, cadences and staccatos to strengthen your technique.

It’s important to develop good technique from the start.  Excellent technique is the ability to have optimal control over the piano or singing performance, giving the artist the precise musical effects that they desire. Contact a professional vocal coach or piano teacher and begin your musical journey the correct way. Don’t wait until you have many bad habits that you will have to fix. Listen to Sophia Johnson sing “Ice Cream” with flawless technique!
