Description:


Welcome to Vibrato, Part 2! In part 1, we covered the elements of healthy vocal technique that must be in place for vibrato to develop. Those elements include breath support, good cord closure, and resonant space. A fourth element, important to every single aspect of singing, is relaxation! Overly tense vocal production will not result in free, natural vibrato. 
 
In this tutorial, we’re building on that foundation to refine our vibrato. Part 1 covers vibrato and straight tone, with exercises incorporate both in your singing. In part 2, we’ll cover some common issues with vibrato, including a vocal wobble or tremolo. And part 3 is all about vibrato usage in different musical genres, with some style-specific exercises. 
 
We’ll get started with a quick warm-up in the next video.
