What is voice production and how does it start
Many often heard the combination of “voice acting” in music schools, but not everyone understands exactly what it means. Some people call it a set of exercises designed to give the voice a specific manner of singing, while others think that this is its tuning to the correct singing, according to the requirements of vocal art. In fact, voice production is the initial stage in teaching vocal art, depending on its direction and the natural features of the voice of a novice vocalist. There is an academic and folk voice production, jazz and pop, as well as a choral voice based on classical vocals. It includes not only vocal exercises, but also characteristic chants in the framework of a suitable direction for the development of your voice. How voice performance differs from vocal lessons Many music schools have vocal and voice lessons.
At first glance, they almost do not differ from each other, but in fact they have a different orientation. If vocal lessons are designed to improve singing in a certain manner, then voice training is a common vocal exercise for beginners, the purpose of which is not only to determine the desired direction for the performer, but also to acquire the necessary skills such as breathing, developing articulation, overcoming clamps and etc. In many music schools, where there are several areas of singing (for example, academic and pop vocals), there are lessons in the initial production of voice, the results of which will help you choose the most successful direction for further development.
There are also voice lessons in choral classes, aimed not at developing solo singing skills, but at primary vocals. This is necessary so that the voice sounds correctly in the choir and does not stand out from the general choral sonority. Sometimes voice training is called singing lessons for children up to 10 years old with breathing exercises, learning complex intervals and learning pure intonation. Therefore, those who do not yet know how to learn to sing from scratch should sign up for the lessons of the initial voice production, in order to then determine their future direction. After all, there are voices that are more suitable for classical opera vocals than for folk singing, and vice versa.
And there are voices that are more suitable for solo singing than for choral or ensemble singing, despite training in academic vocals. Setting a voice will allow you not only to get basic singing skills, but also learn a lot of interesting things about the features of your voice, its timbre, range, etc. How to start a voice setting The purpose of voice setting is to teach basic singing skills. It includes not only a set of exercises, but also the development of the auditory culture of the performer. Therefore, the teacher can give you not only special exercises, but also recordings of various singers, since improper singing, tightness in the voice and various inconveniences can be associated with a lack of auditory culture, because on the radio and on music channels you can rarely hear opera arias or even just proper singing. Many contemporary performers, in order to attract attention to themselves, begin to invent a catchy, but incorrect way of singing, imitation of which can lead not only to inconvenience, but also to injure the vocal cords. Therefore, listening to examples of correct singing is also included in the complex of voice production and, if your teacher has not yet given you examples, ask him about it. The next part of voice production is the formation of the respiratory support.
These are various exercises with slow exhalations, hissing, and tremors of the air with the diaphragm so that the voice has a firm breathing support when singing. Voices with unsettled breathing sound very dull and their characteristic feature is the inability to hold long notes. They begin to fade and gradually lose their color and purity of intonation, so the set breath will allow you to easily sing notes of various durations. Lessons in voice production include the removal of various voice clips, which can interfere not only with easy singing, but also with clean articulation. Beginners often have a discrepancy between the voice and the vocal, so it becomes difficult for them to pronounce words when singing. This barrier is easy to overcome when all voice clips are removed. You will not feel discomfort not only while singing, but even in speaking. And this will help you vocal exercises and chants for beginners, simple but useful. Also, depending on the learning outcomes, the teacher may give you exercises for setting the voice in the direction most suitable for your voice. In addition, voice acting creates light singing in different parts of your range. You can easily sing not only high notes, but also the bottoms.
