Here are seven quick and easy top tips and suggestions by Nadel Paris and EDM artist to improve your Singing X Factor.

 

1) Correct posture is essential. You need to be standing up straight with your feet firmly planted on the floor; imagine roots growing out from the soles of your feet into the bowels of the earth so that you are properly grounded. Equally you need to be connected to divine inspiration and able to bring that down to earth so think of a cord of light reaching from the top of your head into heavens and the sky above.

 

2) You need to gently warm your voice up and then take yourself all the way in a training session once on the day of the performance before the gig itself so that you are properly warmed up and firing on all cylinders for your performance but not tired from over singing.

 

3) Correct vocal training over time is crucial ingredient in developing your singing X factor. Just like an athlete who has to train their muscles and body for their chosen sport, singers have to train their body to sing. This usually entails vocal exercises that are repeated often for years to train the body to create the best sound it can.

 

4) Knowing your material inside out, upside down, backward and forwards utterly and completely as if it has become a part of your body like your right arm is going to help you deliver a convincing performance. It is estimated that we loose 100% in performance which means we need to go in with 200 %.

 

5) Singing with total and utter authenticity and truth will cut through the bullshit and give your performance power. One of the factors that lead to STAR quality is how truthful a performer is.

 

6) Stage craft includes knowing where to look; knowing how to hold your hands and body; which part of the song is the climax and exactly what your song is saying; the message and mood of your songs are all aspects of stage craft which is part of your preparation in learning your material.

 

7) We all need somebody to report to on a regular basis as we work on the points above. By this it means finding a good singing teacher or vocal coach and having regular singing lessons, whether it is with an individual voice teacher or on singing courses. It is very difficult to be objective about our own performance and even well established professionals working in the music business have a personal singing coach to help them develop their performance and offer an outside opinion on what they are doing. Working with professional help will speed up the learning process and help you master these points. It is also more fun and less lonely.

 

If you follow these tips Nadel Paris you will feel much more confident about your singing and your performing. This will help to release the Singing X Factor in you.

Good professional singers not only have to be fit and healthy to look good for stage performances, they must also know how to maintain and preserve a good singing voice.

 

You have only one voice and when your voice is damaged permanently, it will probably spell the end of a singer’s. Many singers who have not been through professional singing coaching by good singing coaches or attend any singing schools may not even know that they may be damaging their voice.

 

Many singers also forget that when their singing voice does not feel right and they are not singing effortlessly as they should be, they will have a tendency to compensate with bad and un-healthy singing habits. These newly created or old bad habits may become stuck unconsciously and will have to be unlearned with the right vocal exercises. That is if the singer is aware that such habits are already in existence in the first place.

 

There are many things you can do to damage your singing voice and sometimes the damage will lead to permanent damage to your vocal chords. Here are some examples outlined by Nadel Paris of what can harm your voice and there are many more.

 

  • Constant screaming or talking forcefully all the time. This happens very often if you are singing in a night club environment where you have to speak above the din to be heard. Making funny voices maybe cute, but you may be doing terrible damages to your vocal folds.
  • Dry air and/or not enough water consumption will dry up your larynx and thus placing too much friction on them. 
  • Poor diet, lack of sleep, stress will place more tolls on your body and your singing mechanism.
  • Caffeine consumption, alcohol consumption, smoking will also damage your voice.
  • Talking, singing or whispering when you have laryngitis or sore throat. You need to rest your voice when you have a sore throat.

 

True professional singers must spend a lifetime working to minimize the stresses on their voices. Why should they want to destroy their singing career by being ignorant about what these bad habits can do to their singing?

 

What is more, if the voice is damaged because of frequent abuse and polyps grow on the larynx, they may even need to go for a surgery to remove the polyps. That will mean income and avoidable medical expenses. So you must preserve and maintain a healthy singing voice if you want to have a successful singing career.

When your band and you as the lead singer use electronic musical instruments such as the electric guitar, electric bass or the microphone etc, conducting a sound check is necessary to balance the sound of the instruments and your voice.

 

Your band members will sound check their own instruments and their systems such as the monitor first and then you, the singer or the vocal section will do your own sound check last once the sound system for the musical instruments are already well balanced. Sound check in this sequence will enable you to hear how you sound when you are actually singing with your band.

 

At the sound check, make sure that your microphone is free from its stand if you want to move around or dance during your singing performance. Also ask the sound equipment technicians for a monitor to be placed in front of you so that you can hear yourself sing. If you can get your hands on a pair of sound monitor earpiece, that will be better because this will give you more room to prance around and entertain your audience and fans.

 

How to sound check the singer’s microphone?

 

Your singing voice when produced by the microphone should be louder and above the sounds produced by the band so that your voice can carry the songs well and able to portray your feel, song interpretation and emotions clearly. Sometimes, this may result in loud feed backs (that loud piercing screeching sound produced by the microphone) so much so that your sound technician or yourself must know where the maximum volume can be before the irritating screeching feedback occurs. The sound technician should mark this threshold on his sound board control.

 

During the crescendo parts of songs, move away from the microphone so that you do not trigger feedback and move back in again during the softer part of the songs. By doing this, you are not only able to control feed backs, you will also not irritate sensitive audience who may not enjoy loud singing. On the other hand, when the singing is soft and you are far away from your audience, they may not be able to make out what you are singing and that is why you need to move closer to the microphone when the interpretation of the song calls for you to sing softly.

 

It is important to watch out for consonants or lyrics beginning with ‘P’s and ‘B’s. When you are singing loudly into the microphone, these consonants may cause explosive pop pop sounds on the microphone. If you think ‘M’, you will be able to prevent ‘please’ and ‘baby’ exploding out of the speakers.

 

The final sound check

 

At the end of the sound check session, you and your band must run through a couple of songs. This is done not only because you want to hear whether the sound is good from the audience perspective but also whether all your band members can hear themselves, the band as a whole and sound from their monitors.

Song structure forms favored by popular music have been pretty stable for decades. Most music (popular and otherwise) is built off at least two contrasting sections: the initial material (A) and the contrasting material (B). This helps give the music emotional direction, climax, and release. In popular forms, A serves as the verse and B serves as the chorus. The most common form, not surprisingly, is verse–chorus–verse–chorus–verse/interlude/bridge–chorus. After two repetitions of verse–chorus, a number of things can happen. There can be simply an instrumental verse. A bridge can function as additional contrasting material, taking us away from the basic material then returning us back to it. Sometimes there is a breakdown that provides contrasting rhythmic material, the equivalent of a non-lyric bridge. In a variation of this A-B form, there are two verses before the first chorus (A-A-B-A-B…).

 

Music where the chorus comes first is used less frequently (chorus–verse–chorus–verse etc.), although Hit Songs Deconstructed, which analyzes key song writing trends reflected in the Billboard Hot 100, found that this structure spiked from just 25% of songs in quarter one of 2015 to 42% in quarter two. The advantage of this structure is that the listener gets much earlier to the part of the song that is designed to be the most memorable, and gets “hooked” more quickly. The shorter attention span trend in mass culture has fueled this development, and wouldn’t be surprised to see more of it over time.

 

Songwriters sometimes employ additional mini-sections, such as a pre-chorus (which helps build up and amplify the chorus payoff) or a post-chorus (providing a “double your money” additional hook).

 

Some styles of music favor a different approach to the verse–chorus alternation. In much R&B, for example, while the verse and chorus differ lyrically and melodically, the underlying music and chord progressions do not change. Instead, the chorus is heightened with additional instruments and a beefed up sound. Alternatively, music coming out of rural and folk traditions often uses a simple A-A-A-A structure with reiterations of the verse. A short melodic hook or tail at the end of each verse, usually the same lyric, takes the place of the chorus. This structure could frequently be heard in music of the 60s and 70s (a good example is Joni Mitchell’s “Amelia”), but is much rarer now.

 

Although this toolbox seems pretty limited, there are actually a lot of things a songwriter can do to heighten the emotional payoff and mitigate predictability (we like some predictability, but unexpected surprises give even more emotional lift). Verses can be cut short or interrupted. The pre-chorus can be foreshadowed in the song’s introduction. Phrases can be repeated or not-repeated at the close of the chorus. The chorus can be delayed. And many more

Music is the abysmal rainbow that bridges endless galaxies. It is the waterfall flowing through the desert, the mother, the offspring, the ointment, the foot and hand of the wind. All of nature is music: the many colored skies, space and planets.

 

Music is every wondrous canyon in a miracle’s dream. Music is evolution, the seed of change. Music existed and exists with or without human beings. No race invented music.

 

Music is a form of energy, like the sun. Music is the voice through which spirits speak, using a language that is beyond words, a music that is beyond notes. Music informs us with a reality that is scented with the eternal. Music is the tireless swan knitting landscapes of hope. Music is the cry of life and death at birth and conception, the heart beat, the pulse, the healer and the healed, the color portrait, the magical stone and the magical mists living side by side. Music is the chirping of birds; is the grass beneath the cracked shells.

 

Music is dance and the dancer. It is poetry and the poet. Music is all children. Music is hot cornbread. Music is the kindness one finds in a crayon drawing. Music is wood touching word. Imagine a doorbell made of light. Imagine the house that we would enter if we rang that bell. Music and Digital Music are the inseparable part of life. Music is found everywhere. It is present in every creation of the God.

In the ancient past, the Greeks attributed an “ethos” or moral force to musical rhythms and scales. To determine the ethos of anything such as a musical rhythm they not only factored meter, but also other fundamental rhythmic elements such as lengths, beats, bars, and parts. Their study of these elements brought about the following statements about rhythm in particular:

 

An equal genre such as 1/1 is calm and resolute. The sound of this rhythm would be similar to that of a heartbeat that pounds steadily away with each beat containing an equal emphasis.

 

The double 2/1 is vivid and loose. The sound of this rhythm could have a few variations where you would either emphasize the first or the second beat (backbeat).

 

The rhythm 3/2 they considered feverish and enthusiastic. The sound of this rhythm would have a waltz feel or a swaying motion.

 

Interestingly, by combining ones, twos and threes you can get other meters or a time signature which allows you to capture the ethos of other meters as mentioned above. You can get a 2/1 feel (vivid and loose) from a 6/8 or a 4/4 time signature or a 3/2 ethos (feverish and enthusiastic) from a 12/8 or 9/4 time signature by expertly accenting the right beats in the measures or using a complex form of syncopation.

 

Similarly, the Greeks did exactly the same thing with scales and modes. Several remaining fragments and entire essays exist today where a famous Greek philosopher theorized about the subject of an ethos of a scale. Perhaps, a good example to use will be by one of ancient Greece’s most famous philosopher’s Aristotle. [Note: the ancient Greeks used the word 'harmoniai' when referencing scales and modes.] For example, Aristotle in the Politics says, “melodies themselves do contain [character]… the harmoniai have quite distinct natures from one another, so that those who hear them are differently affected and do not respond in the same way to each. To some, such as the one called Mixolydian, they respond with more grief and anxiety, to others, such as the relaxed harmoniai, with more mellowness of mind, and to one another with a special degree of moderation and firmness, Dorian being apparently the only one of the harmoniai to have this effect, while Phrygian creates ecstatic excitement.”

 

Unfortunately, scholars are not quite sure about the exact tonal character of ancient Greek music, their tuning systems, and scales. So when Aristotle refers to Mixolydian or Dorian he may not actually be referring to the scales we’re familiar with. While it would be very cool to know about those things concerning the music of the ancient Greeks, it is not a part of the point. Rather, what I want to bring your attention to is the fact that the scales or modes we use today do indeed also have an ethos and the degree to which we can become aware of the exact ethos one is creating musically or being exposed to when we’re listening to music is the exact degree to which we can affect (or infect) others or are allowing ourselves to be affected. Because ultimately, it’s these two elements – rhythm and melody – more than any others in music that have a profound effect on us emotionally, intellectually, and morally.

 

Not unlike rhythm, scales and modes can also be mixed together to compose very complex melodies as is common in modern Western music. What happens when one mixes bits and pieces of the elements of two or more modes is very similar to what occurs when one mixes two or more rhythms in a single composition, you effect dramatic emotional, intellectual, and moral changes upon the listener. So whether one is manipulating the size, duration, force, velocity and mixture of two or more meters in order to achieve the use of asymmetrical meters, oddly numbered measures, plenty of syncopation, changing time signatures, or any combination of these elements or modulating from one scale to another diatonically or chromatically, using modern embellishments, and compositional techniques the end result possesses an ethos of unusual character. Perhaps, the ethos of modern Western music would be difficult to define if not even unknown to the ancient Greeks. Regardless, it’s what we’ve got now and today it’s how a modern composer and musician approach the art of writing music.

Oldies music is immensely popular even today. The songs are preferred by people of all age groups. The various types of radio apps that are available nowadays allow people to enjoy their favorite oldies songs.

 

The features that make an Oldie

 

The kind of music and oldies that we listen to and enjoy nowadays is as old as the 1940′s. Basically, music which belongs to the period between the 1940′s to 1970′s comes under the category of oldies music. The songs belonging to this era are classics and are popular even today. This type of music which is nowadays available on oldies radio has lyrics that can easily be adapted by different artists. They can be sung to the tunes of various instruments. The tunes, however, remain recognizable and the lyrics remain in their original form. The most popular example of oldies songs that are nowadays sung by various artistes include the tunes composed by Elvis Presley. Similarly, the songs composed by Louis Armstrong are a hot favorite amongst artists. However, all these songs still have the same tunes and lyrics. They provide the same comfort and listeners can easily sing along as the lyrics remain the same. It can hence be concluded that oldies are characterized by their typical tunes and unique lyrics.

 

The different sense and style of oldies music lyrics

 

The much popular 70′s music had a unique style that was quite different from the music that we listen to nowadays. The music had a deeper meaning, was beautiful and was symbolic of life, love, and humanity. The oldies tunes were more serene and provided a sense of comfort. These are few of the reasons why this genre of music remains popular even in modern times. The different eras brought with them different music styles. The advanced technology available nowadays has made significant transformations in music and has given birth to genres like dance mix, rap and techno pop. This type of music was not part of the oldies as the advanced technology instruments which are used for creating this type of music were not available in those days. This type of music is increasingly being played by a number of radio stations via various kinds of radio apps.

 

Some people are of the view that oldies music sounds the best when played on a traditional record player. The needle, when placed on the record player, transports a person back into time. This perception has now changed with the introduction of various radio apps that play oldies music. These apps provide the same comfort and pleasure as that provided by the record player.

 

The singers who effectively etched the lyrics of oldies music in our minds

 

There are many popular oldies singers. Their songs are evergreen and remain the most popular melodies of all times. The 80s music typically comprises of songs by these accomplished singers. Few most popular ones include Natalie Cole and Nat King Cole whose song ‘Unforgettable’ was a smash hit, the song ‘True Love’ sung by Grace Kelly and Bing Crosby, the songs are sung by Frank Sinatra, ‘I only have eyes for you’ sung by Garfunkel and many more such melodious songs. The true beauty of these songs lies in the fact that only the mention of them is sufficient to make you remember the lyrics and tune.

 

Oldies music stations

 

The various radio apps available nowadays feature oldies music stations that play 90′s music and other popular songs. The team at these stations puts in a lot of effort to craft and design formats that help to maintain the true essence of oldies music. They typically include songs ranging from 1950′s to 1990′s and include the immensely popular rock and roll songs of the 50′s and 60′s. These dedicated apps usually focus on maintaining the true oldies format. They allow users to create playlists according to the songs and artistes most preferred by them. The playlists provide convenience as they can easily listen to various oldies songs of their choice with a simple click.

 

Conclusion

 

Oldies music has remained unchanged over the years. The introduction of various kinds of radio apps has made it easier for people to listen to their favorite old songs and artists.

Life is short and therefore it should be enjoyed to the fullest. There are many ways in which you can enjoy life without hurting the people around you. One common source of entertainment is the live music concert. It gives people a great feeling to watch their favorite musicians perform at a live music concert. Such concerts also serve as a platform for the musicians to showcase their talents.

Music Festivals - Nadel Paris

However, for you to enjoy a live music concert, you have to put into account a couple of factors. These factors are important in ensuring that you get to choose the right live concerts that will satisfy all your entertainment needs. In addition, some of these live concerts happen rarely and so, you do not have many options. You have to go so that you do not miss out on the fun and special opportunity. This article seeks to provide you with a number of factors that you must consider whenever you are looking for a live music concert to spend your time and money on.

 

Nadel Paris suggests the one important thing that you must put into consideration before you set out to a live music concert is the character of the audience. Different live music concerts are performed for different types of audiences. It is therefore important for you to consider the type of audience that suits you. Mostly, the character of the audience depends on the age. Some music concerts are only meant for the teens and it would be a bit disappointing for an adult of about 50 years to attend such a concert. The language and behavior of the audience in such a concert might not be pleasing to the adult. This is why you have to consider the character of the audience before you attend the live concert. Otherwise, you are going to lack a sense of belonging. Time also determines the type of audience that attends a concert. For instance, the type of audiences that attend live concerts happening on a Saturday night are different from the one who attend a concert on a Sunday afternoon.

 

This brings us to the next point that you have to consider the time that the live music concert is happening. Most of the live concerts happen at night especially the ones for secular music. Thus, you should be certain about the kind of music that you enjoy listening to so that you do not end up going to the wrong concert at the wrong time. This also requires you to research on the type of live concerts that are ideal for you.

 

Where you sit during the concert is also important because it will determine the amount of enjoyment you get from the live music concert. However, where you sit highly depends on your taste. If you are the kind of attendee who loves to sit close to the artist so that you can examine their shoes and accessories, then you might have to buy a VIP ticket. However, if you want to listen and enjoy the blended music, then you will have to sit right in the middle. Just make sure that the position you choose is the best for you.

For many singers, musicians and multi-faceted performers who are just starting out in the entertainment industry, and even for some pro’s, performance anxiety can easily ruin what should be a rewarding and exhilarating experience.

 

After hours and hours of practice, rehearsals and preparation, you step out on stage and the applause or lack of applause, the sight of a large crowd, or the presence or absence of loved-ones, and many other factors, create a sense of anxiety or even panic. It varies from one performer to another. Entertainment for events can often become overwhelming at the last minute.

 

If you’re not prepared for the crowd, or the lack of a crowd, or the weather (if you’re performing outdoors), or whatever is “out there”, it could ruin that big moment. Some newbie music performers actually cancel because the anxiety was too much. Music Performance anxiety has been known for various physical and psychological dilemmas, such as causing rapid heartbeat, profuse perspiration, crying, lack of bladder control, the list goes on and on.

 

Here are 3 easy techniques suggested by Nadel Paris a musician you can use at the last minute to reduce music performance anxiety when entertaining for an event, before stepping out from behind the curtain, into the spotlight.

 

1. Before entering the performance area, (the stage or the spotlight), allow time for several deep breaths. Relax your muscles, starting by closing your eyes and envisioning a quiet place that you like, (the beach, the seashore, the park, your backyard, your bedroom, etc.). Start with the top of your head, and concentrate on relaxing your facial muscles, then your neck muscles, then your arms, your torso, your hip muscles, your legs, your feet. This could probably be done very well by sitting in a chair. But you can do this with directed mental focus even if you’re standing.

 

2. Next, allow yourself to envision the end of your performance. See yourself bowing, receiving applause and adulation and admiration, and shaking hands and smiling after “it’s all over.”

 

3. Finally, go out there and look at the audience. Smile, and say to yourself, “They are all here for ME. And No one here can do what I do.” If you truly believe this statement, your performance will come across with confidence. Then, ignore the audience in a sense. Focus on “your zone.” Have fun with what you know. (You will have had to have done “your homework” and be very well-rehearsed in order to do this.) So even if you make a mistake, and keep smiling, and keep going, the audience will love you anyway!

 

The multi-faceted performer is a source of pleasure and enjoyment for the public and an asset in any culture. Remember that!
