How to Sing Long Phrases | Singing Lessons


Hi. I’m Anya Singleton, and this is my friend
and accompanist, Matt Gallagher. We’re going to talk to you about how to sing
long phrases. I think the easiest way to do that, is to
do an exercise where we start with short, what we call staccato beats, and
then we come back down, using long phrases. What that’s going to do is it’s going to make
your mind have to work a little harder, so that you’re making
the switch and you’re able to really tune into the long phrases. Long phrases are hard for a lot of
singers because it’s very hard for them to stay in tune. We’re going to
work on that. We’ll just do a couple of these to give you
a chance to practice. That’s how you would practice to work on your
long phrases. I think it’s
easier to start with some short staccato phrases, and then use long phrases
coming down, so you have something to compare yourself to. I think for this one too, you want to think
about using . . . breath is really key, especially if you start short,
and then do the longer phrases. If you are using the same kind of breath you
use for the short phrases, you’re going to run out of air for the longer
phrases. I think what happens
is when you run out of air, you lose the pitch, especially if it’s low in
your range or high in your range. You want to think about making the
transitions by using your breath support.
