Use Decrescendo in Singing
Edited by Toradze, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. This is a video tutorial series on how to sing. In the previous tutorial, we discussed how to sing with vibrato. In this tutorial, we will show you how to use a decrescendo in singing. In another tutorial, we discussed the crescendo, which is essentially the opposite of a decrescendo.
- 3A decrescendo should happen over a definite period of time that is defined by beats.If the time is four beats, and you start a decrescendo at a forte volume, then you need to reach a piano volume over the four beats. As an example, let's sing do over four counts forte. By the end of the four counts, we will have lowered the volume gradually to a piano volume.
- 5Essentially, what you are doing is controlling the amount of air you release so that a decrescendo occurs.To use a crescendo, you should push more air to achieve a higher volume. To use a decrescendo, you should release less air to lower the volume. The sound should be going quieter without diminishing the quality of the voice.Advertisement
