THE IMPORTANCE OF VOCAL TRAINING

Reasons why vocal training can help you as a singer

 the importance of vocal training

The Importance of Vocal Training: No matter if you're just starting out or you’re an international singing sensation, all singers need to have vocal training! Here are some reasons why vocal training is so important for singers (credit to Julie Miles of Vocal Ovation for additions).

The Important of Vocal Training

Reaching your Full Potential

Vocal training helps you to sing better, although that seems obvious, that’s what they aim to do. Good singing tuition will help you learn techniques and exercises that are suitable for the effective development of your vocal. Vocal training can therefore help to develop your music further. 

Staying in Key

Singing consistently in key when under pressure can sometimes be a challenge due to the effect nerves can have on the vocal chords and breathing. Regular training will teach you how to control, manage and balance this far more successfully.

Increasing your Range

Reach you potential by extending your vocal range to allow you to sing comfortably and without strain. You’ll then be able to pick from a much wider range of songs and keep yourself and your audience interested. 

Build Confidence

Successful singers need to be confident as that confidence reflects in their performance. Confidence comes from being in control and control comes from having a good technique. Taking up vocal training can help with all the above and will therefore enable a singer to focus less on what could go wrong and more on delivering a believable performance for their audience.

The Importance of Vocal Training

Vocal Health

The vocal is a very delicate and complex instrument which unfortunately cannot be renewed if it wears out. When singing without the education provided through vocal training, it’s very easy for a singer to damage their vocal, sometimes permanently. Good singing teachers will identify the times that you may be putting undue strain on your vocal and the correct way to change that with specific exercises.  They can also advise you on your lifestyle choices that could help to protect your vocal. 

Developing your own Style

Successful singers usually have something quite unique about their vocal so that when you hear one of their songs you immediately recognise them. Vocal training will help to develop a strong foundation for your vocal which will allow your own style to surface. Unless you want to become a ‘tribute’ singer an audience will prefer to hear your vocal!

Breath Control

The health of your vocal is paramount as a singer. Therefore improving breath control can help you to keep your vocal strong. Many people with breathing problems use vocal training as a way of improving the issue. Breath control is essential as a singer and you’ll need it to perform, if you lose your breath and stop singing, you risk ruining your reputation.

Public Speaking

As you develop in your career, being able to speak in public becomes essential for interviews and press releases. Vocal lessons help you to find your vocal and know it better than you did before. Learning to project your vocal is essential and helps with microphone technique.
