What’s the condition of your vibrato? Non-existent? Shakey? Unpredictable? If you can’t sing with vibrato or your vibrato’s unreliable, your chances to be a great singer are almost “ZIP”!!! But even if you weren’t born with vibrato, you can develop vibrato. If your vibrato’s inconsistent or unpredictable there’s a way to fix it.
Let me repeat this because it’s the main message: YOU CAN DEVELOP VIBRATO…even if you don’t have a natural vibrato from birth. You CAN improve vibrato that’s out of control. You CAN train your voice to have an ideal vibrato!!!!
I wasn’t born with vibrato. When I was 16 years old my singing teacher told me that if I didn’t have a natural vibrato, I didn’t have it. For 28 more years I believed her. She had her masters degree in vocal performance! Why wouldn’t I believe her?
My singing and my life changed when I developed vibrato in my own voice.
Here’s how it happened. Many years ago I was taking voice lessons with one of Seth Rigg’s associate teachers. (Seth Riggs was Michael Jackson’s vocal coach). After I told her I didn’t have vibrato, she said anyone can develop vibrato gave me exercises that induced it in my voice.
With one simple exercise, I immediately began to feel vibrato in my voice for the first time! Within a few weeks I was using vibrato in songs. Over time, it improved and my confidence in my voice skyrocketed. It was like a miracle to me.
There’s no doubt in my mind that without vibrato I wouldn’t been cast in the roles of Don Quixote, Fagin, Peron, The King, Daddy Warbucks, Scrooge, the Tin Man, John Dickinson, Horace Vandergelder, Captain Corcoran, and many others. I wouldn’t have auditioned at all!
There are special exercises that induce vibrato in your voice. It’s like any skill. With the right help you can learn vibrato and sing like you’ve been born with it.
This video is the first in a series of four videos that will teach you how to conquer vibrato. In my next video I’ll teach you a powerful exercise I’ve never before shown publicly.
I used to think it was wrong to fake vibrato. However, If you don’t have it naturally, how else can you learn? When you first start learning vibrato, it does feel awkward and artificial. But with practice, it’s as if you’ve always had it.
Does this sound fake to you? [demo ah on descending 5 tone scale] I couldn’t do that until I was 44 years old.
Some people don’t like their vibrato, because they can’t control it or it’s to fast or slow.
No problem. It’s possible to stop vibrato, and retrain your voice a step at a time. You can learn to be in complete control of your vibrato…so you sound professional and confident.
Your singing and your life will be changed forever when you can sing with vibrato.
It improves your pitch, tone, and confidence. Your voice sounds professional.
More importantly, you start getting solos, call backs, leading roles, and compliments about your voice. Everything about your singing gets better! And when that happens, your life gets better too!
Within the next few days, I’ll release my second video. In this video, I’ll help you develop vibrato in your voice.
