Over the years in working with artist after artist, we’ve found there are 5 basic points it is very helpful to keep in mind. That will allow you to get the best result out of the experience. And help prepare you for the process.
And here they are:
#1 Work every part of the songWhen you arrive at the studio, you should know every run, every chorus every verse, exactly how you are going to sing each one etc. As well as if you want harmonies, you should already have each one down. Exactly how you want it to sound. When it comes to recording time is money. Time is also frustration. And broke, frustrated singers are not happy singers.
#2 Warm up your voice correctly
To sing high and low for long periods of time, your vocal chords need to be able to vibrate at different speeds and work harder then they did they do normally. Because the vocal chords themselves are muscles if you use them excessively with warming them up you can damage them. But not only that it’s likely you won’t be able to sing the way you want to.
Since, when you sing R&B and Pop, you actually use 8 sining muscles… Yes 8! Voicercises teaches a singer how to use each of those 8 singing muscles and get them under YOUR control. You can sing quite a bit higher than you do now, by retraining your vocal chords to obey what you want them to do, without cracing.
The Voicercises can give you the exercises to get you hitting those notes with the fastest progress possible. These are the same range and volume broadening vocal exercises we use in our one on one classes every day, to instantly expand their range, volume and sound.
#3 What To bring to the studio
- Room Temp Water
- Tea, Lemon, Ginger Etc
- NO caffeine or carbonated beverages.
- A smile! Chill out and bring it!!
#4 Who to bring with youNope! Simon Cowell is NOT invited in the sound booth! Sometimes from watching The Voice, American Idol etc, we get this idea that we should bring the most brutally honest person with us when we go recording.
This is NOT the case. Because when you are trying to sing and perform with confidence, and you are looking into the booth and someone is sitting there judging for singing badly you without offering help, you aren’t gonna sing very good!
