Use Crescendo While Singing
Edited by Toradze, VisiHow, Eng
Hi! You're watching VisiHow. This is a video tutorial series on how to sing. In the previous tutorial, we discussed how to sing like yourself. In this tutorial, we will teach you how to use a crescendo while singing.
- 1In order to reach a higher volume, we will begin singing from mezzo forte or mezzo piano. Imagine that, just as the distance between the lines at an angle of the crescendo staff sign increases over beats, your voice must increase in volume too. Over a period of time, we will reach a forte, triple forte, or fortissimo volume or another volume according to the volume level we need to achieve.A crescendo is starting from one volume and reaching another point at a higher volume.Advertisement
- 2We should do that in order to gradually push the air out over a period of time, which will increase our singing volume. In tutorial 1, tutorial 2, and tutorial 3, we discuss starting with good support from the diaphragm and lungs in order to have maximum function of the voice.To utilize a crescendo, we need to learn how to focus and control our breathing.Advertisement
- 4This is singing very softly. Over four counts, let's gradually reach a forte volume. Take a good breath and focus on the formation. We'll start at a mezzo piano volume and push more air over a period of time. That means that until we hit the forte wall, we will have the volume of something louder than mezzo piano or quieter than forte in between. You can sing do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, and do or whatever with which you feel comfortable.In this exercise, let's begin at a mezzo piano volume.Advertisement
