Stretching the Voice"Legato Singing"It Is Well With My Soul
As we mentioned during the rehearsal last week, you start with "ah" or "oh" and make sure that you are singing with a beautiful legato connection (or line). Then you make the switch to words and attempt to match the legato of the "ah" vowel.
Speed again is important. If you sing too fast you will find success elusive. But if you start slow and then gradually increase your speed, while maintaining legato consistency, your success will increase immeasurably.
The key is to sing every day--and make sure that you sing strongly and connect one word to another. Singing every day is crucial if you are to improve your singing. 15-20 minutes is all it takes. Try it. Sing a great hymn--EVERY DAY--it will improve your voice and your life.
