HOW TO LEARN TO KNOW THE QUIET – QUIET NUANCES
To get started, you just need to sing in a convenient tessitura a certain phrase of medium volume. If you get into the resonators correctly, it will sound easy and free. Now try to sing it very quietly, keeping a vocal position. Do you hear yourself now or not? Ask a friend to sit in the far corner of the room and try to quietly sing a phrase or line from a song without a microphone. Were the words clearly heard? Did your voice disappear during quiet singing?
If you lose your voice when you sing quiet notes in a high tessitura, this is the first sign of incorrect formation of sound on the ligaments. For such artists, the voice sounds very loud and shrill at high notes or disappears completely. In such cases, it is worth taking high notes with falsetto so that the sound can be easily controlled. You can use the usual vocal exercises, only to sing them in different nuances. For example, one chanting link is sung loudly, the other is at medium height, the third is quiet. You can use vocal exercises with a gradual ascent to the octave and tripling the upper sound, which you need to take falsetto.
Exercises for quiet singing: Chanting an octave (do-mi-salt-do-do-do-do-do-sol-mi-do). The top sound should be taken as quietly as possible. Downward chanting from fifth to prima. Bottom sounds should be clearly audible. A little chanting do-re-mi-re-do. It will help you learn how to clearly pronounce words in quiet nuances and low sounds. A very simple but useful exercise for training the low register in sopranos. And, of course, decent vocal quiet singing is impossible without examples. One of them may be a scene: Le balcon (Romeo et Juliette) in French. Pay attention to how high notes Juliet (lyrical soprano) sings, a singer with a classical education and academic staging.
In the stage, the example of the correct singing of the top notes can be the singer Nyusha (especially in slow compositions). She not only has a good upper hand, but she also sings high notes easily and quietly. It is worth paying attention not to singing verses, but to how she shows her voice in losses. A singer who copes well with low notes and can sing them quietly can be called Laima Vaiukle. Singing in quiet nuances is achieved with a solid respiratory support and getting into the resonators.
They contribute to the audibility of voices in any audience. The position of quiet singing should be close so that the timbre is enriched with beautiful overtones and can be heard even in the distant row of the auditorium. This technique is used by actors in theatrical plays. When words need to be whispered, they take a low diaphragmatic breath and form a sound as close to the front teeth as possible. In this case, the clarity of pronunciation of words is very important. The quieter the sound, the clearer the words.
