What is vocal technique?
There are several elements that all combine to create what we call vocal technique. First there is learning to sing on pitch. We can help dial this in with intervals, and ear training. Next, there is breath control. The amount of breath vs the amount of pressure on the vocal cords is a mix, that you can control. Also, good posture and body awareness is important. We learn to sing with support from our center, which is an area in our lower abdomen a few inches below our navel. In addition, learning resonance is important. This means for high notes we may be thinking forehead for example. All in all there is a lot to learn which is why its a good idea to get an experienced instructor!
What is Mic Technique?
In addition to our own physical bodies, if we sing through a sound system or in a studio environment, we need to also learn about mic technique. There are 2 kinds of microphones: Dynamic, and Condenser. Dynamic mics are more commonly used for live sound while condenser mics are more sensitive and are great for capturing nuances in the studio. An example of a typical dynamic vocal mic is the Shure SM 58. An example of a classic condenser vocal mic is the Neumann U-87.
When singing into either its important to be aware of the gain levels. We want to set the gain fairly “hot” to capture nuances. Its ok to get up close when you are being soft. However this means when you are about to “belt out” some louder notes, you need to use an “off axis” technique and also monitor your distance to the mic. Off axis means tilting to one side or the other so you arent facing directly into the mic. Also backing off from a few inches to a foot or more is totally appropriate. Your instructor can help you with more details on mic technique.
