How to SING SOFTLY and still be heard | #DrDan 🎀

One of the hardest things to learn to do as a vocalist is singing softly. Fortunately, learning to sing softly can be made a little easier with the right knowledge and correct techniques.

You see, all too often I hear young singers stressing and straining their voice to achieve maximum output. Sure, it can sound exciting to hit those big crescendo notes at full volume, but those mountaintop notes need to be contrasted against quieter β€˜valley’ notes.

Welcome to Voice Essentials where everybody sings. Each week we upload new videos purposefully designed to encourage your vocal journey. So if learning to sing is your thing then we invite you to subscribe and join our ever-growing community of passionate singers from across the globe, who just like you, want to raise their voice in song.

And a small side note (because I’m asked a lot): It is important to note that while I hold a doctorate (thus I am Dr Dan), I am not a medical doctor, and the advice provided in this video is generalised information only; and therefore you should always consult with your healthcare professional for personalized advice about your vocal health and well-being.

  1. and nail on the head. man i started easily going into the vocals slowly bringing up the volume and the dynamics are so much better since u inspired me to do it that way. hey i had another guitarist over and i had hhim mezmerized in a pure trance from my vocals and guitar. it was so funnt because hes arrogant and weird childish to be older but funny jealous kinda from my playing and a few times i watched him out the corner of my eyes stop playing and fall into a trance starring into no where. then have to basically snap my fingers to get him out of it when i was done. so wonderful to see that happen after i wud never respond or feed into his weird grown man babyness jealousy. it was honestly nice. and honestly the gear im fortunate enough to play and sing thru nakes a huge diff. i think vocal effects pedals are a must really 4 me anyways cuz im only like 70 percent kinda good. the pedals easily make it 90 percent. they make me sing better cuz i can sing ako g with my own voice that is more in key

  2. I found this video interesting, as always! But for me the swooshing effect was rather disconcerting, when repeated, almost giving a sense of motion sickness. I preferred when you just sit and talk to us.

    1. Thanks for replying! I don’t recall, but I was watching today on my phone rather than the PC (in bed with a fluey cold) maybe I was too close to the screen or maybe it’s down to the cold-y symptoms.

      OK. Well, firstly, I’m sorry to hear you that you’ve got the flu! Get well soon. Secondly, I think your flu symptoms may well be the culprit in this instance.
