Singing is like speaking …only longer, stronger, higher and lower. With Adaptive Vocal Techniques, your singing gets better and better. Learn to sing with Adaptive Vocal Techniques and you will learn to express yourself with your unique voice, beginning with a single word and ending on a glorious high note!
Singing is like speaking longer, stronger, higher, sometimes lower ...always better. When we sing, we want to express a feeling or an idea that begins with the word and ends on a high note, so to speak. So when we learn to use our voices to express ourselves, we are learning a new language that uses our body and mind to express the word.
Every sung vowel has a unique quality and characteristic. This can be challenging for some singers. For example, An E (eeh) vowel occupies less space than an A (ahh) vowel and yet, a good singer gives them equal resonance while letting them have their own unique color. It's like a mother with two or more kids ...she gives them equal love and support while allowing them to distinguish themselves one from the other.
Singers have to carefully condition the voice to respond to any given vowel, on any given note. Through daily exercises connecting vowel to vowel, note to note and sprinkling in the consonants along the way, a singer learns to sustain and energize words in a way that elevates speaking to the level of singing. In this way, singing is a natural extension of speech.

It begins with a breath, and in one breathe we take in the entire idea that we want to express. It is also through breathing that we physically open and relax our throats and make it possible for our voice to freely resonate. How the air comes into our bodies is every bit as important as how it leaves the body while singing. A constant steady air flow to follow, staying open all the while allows the voice to spin out a thread of sound through the words. Through careful coordination of breath and sound, a singer can achieve balance in the voice. This will give the singer the ability to freely navigate the voice from top to bottom. We want a balanced approach to singing that connects the chest and head voice, bridging all the subtle gaps in between. We begin with vowels ...
This is one of the most important lessons for Singers ...but especially Actors! Too often, an Actor with little experience singing lands a part in a Musical and rushes off for a crash course in singing. The end result is ...he or she can't act anymore! Singing is not just about the sound you make, it's about how you use your voice to communicate the words.
When you sing, you must sustain and energize words in a way that elevates speaking to the level of singing. So whether you’re a singer in a Broadway Musical or Classical Opera in New York City, recording a Jazz or R&B tune in a Hollywood studio, or an Actor singing on Stage, Television Video or Film, the singing begins with the words.
