In this video, you will learn hot to sing Katy Perry’s Firework. In particularly I demonstrate a technique used in a lot of pop singing, but especially in female singers who like to belt. This quality is called ‘twang’ and when used properly helps to bring power and strength in the voice without breaking it.

I also demonstrate how she builds up the pre-chorus dynamically, making a very effective crescendo into the Chorus.

In the Chorus, I highlight how to and the importance of diaphragm support and the proper use of the ‘glottal attack’

  1. I’m soooo glad a saw this cos I’m singing this song for my bugsy malone
    audition on Wednesday and I need to no how to sing really good for the song

  2. Hey! I really enjoyed your videos and it’s nice to hear a relatable aussie
    accent 🙂 I personally REALLY struggle with projection or ‘forwardness’ all
    of the examples you gave where you were quite gentle or ‘acoustic’ i find
    that I ‘ALWAYS’ do this…. I would LOVE to know some vocal exercises to
    improve projection! 🙂 Subscribed!!!

    Just watched your Video!! And your Tips are great. I also like to sing but
    I am not soo good. I need to practice a lot more. But yeah thx for this
    Video. It will help a lot!!

  5. WOW thanks, this is so enlightening!! I’ve tried for so long to sing this
    song ‘pretty and appealing’ to people, and now I get the idea that’s why I
    sound so (at least to myself) frustratingly boring. It’ll be hard for me to
    get into this but I must try! – I need tuition for Unconditionally, too, in
    that chorus I drop the notes like autumn leaves when I should hold them up

    thank you for this video as it has helped me as I am in a finals of a
    talent shoe, for me singing. as I am singing fireworks, thank you as I also
    seemed to suddenly go high pitched as I couldn’t keep it a low pitch. thank
    you xx

  8. you look pretty.

    Nice vid. I was looking for videos to help my singing and saw this.
    Honestly not a katy perry fan. And my voice is lower (just a wee bit,
    heheh). But I still liked watching this.

  9. These comparisons are very, very helpful. I don’t really enjoy Katy Perry’s
    vocal style, but I enjoyed learning about how to hear the difference and
    the twang she employs in her singing. Great stuff! Thank you!
