How To Sing | Raising The Soft Palate For Open Singing

One of the questions I get often from my students is ‘How do I raise my soft palate when singing?’. To sing well it’s important to have a raised palate to create a more open, resonant tone.

In this video, I will explain why you need to raise your soft palate, and give you a couple of tips/exercises to help raise the soft palate to create a beautiful singing tone!

Oh, and here’s a little bit about me, in third person, because well, it’s kind of weird to talk about this stuff when you are in first person πŸ™‚

Vocal coach Roma Waterman has been a vocal coach for performers on the X Factor, The Voice and Australia’s Got Talent. She is an award winning songwriter, performer and author as well as a top vocal instructor. Her main focus is on training correct technique around breathing, resonance and posture, and she is an expert in helping with vocal problems such as voice fatigue, vocal nodules, hoarseness and incorrect technique.

Some reviews from her students:

The Best course I ever taken!
“I love taking this singing lesson course. It helped me to sing better. I can also take the lessons with me on the road. I’m glad I purchased this”.Tiffany
Awesome vocal training
“Roma manages to cover complex and in-depth vocal techniques in a clear and simple way. Besides being a great singer herself, Roma is clearly a gifted teacher which shines through in these vocal lessons. I highly recommend this course”. Amberley

Well structured course
“I’ve been a rock singer in a band for the past 3 years and lately I have been performing more solo acoustic gigs. Roma’s course is so helpful. It is well structured and leads you by the hand to higher levels. Highly recommended!” Ibrahim

1:03 What is Belt?
The Dictionary for the Modern Singer notes that β€œBecause the word belt can mean so many things, it is often a confusing term to discuss and difficult to define precisely. Indeed, belt can serve as a noun (indicating the register or technique), an adjective (describing the tone quality or sound), or a verb (describing what the singer is doing). Perhaps no other word in singing is so multifarious.

2:13 Dr Dan’s definition of ‘Belt.’
I often refer to Belt as β€˜Healthy Volume.’ Essentially, I reserve the term Belt for loud healthy singing, so various hybrid uses of the term belt, such soft belt and thin belt don’t get used in my studio.
