Sharpen your vocal at home

With so many budding reality TV singers propping up like mushrooms, we tend to be seduced to try out our vocals just to be disappointed with the result. Of course, with no professional training it can be quite frustrating to try out without guided direction.

If you have visited Expert Village website, you might come across these videos which can be quite helpful to you to improve your vocal.

1. Warm up exercise

2. Mi Me Ma Mo Mu exercise

3. Motorboat

4. Humming

5. Singing with your diaphragm

If you read my article on Musical wonders on your PC I explained how computers have revolutionised music-making. In this article I will explain how it has impact on singing.

Check this video out and you will understand why.

This is a korean girl named Ailee with extraordinary vocal talent. But what is she doing with the PC?

There used to be a time when we need to visit a vocal teacher or go to a studio to actually practice to improve our voice. But now we can just do that in front of our PC.
