Edited by Toradze, VisiHow, Eng, Inukshuk and 2 others
You're watching VisiHow. This is a video tutorial series on singing. In the previous tutorial, we discussed how to sing falsetto and in full voice. In this tutorial, we are going to talk about how to use vibrato when singing.
- 1One may think that when you use vibrato, the vibrato is coming from the throat.Vibrato actually comes from exhaling. In other tutorials (Using Your Diaphragm, Strengthening Your Diaphragm, and Breathing While Singing), we've talked about how the breath and the diaphragm compose the foundation for creating a good sound.Advertisement
- 2To create vibrato, you need a good support system.This system will give the throat and vocal chords the potential to make the air vibrate. Vibrato comes from the spinning of the air that is pushed through by the diaphragm into the throat, over the vocal chords, and out of the mouth. A good foundation for singing comes from the diaphragm muscles. Place your hands on the sides at your oblique muscles and in front of the kidney area. Press the sides firmly, take a deep breath, and feel your diaphragm expand. Hold your breath. Try to tighten the muscles around the diaphragm so that they feel like a rock.Advertisement
- 6To demonstrate a natural vibrato from the diaphragm, let's sing do, or C, without vibrato first.Then, let's sing do, or C, with vibrato. To sing a note, take a deep breath and hold it first. To sing do with vibrato, we will be pushing more air than normal, trying to imagine that the air is spinning.Advertisement
