It took me years to discover how to sing vibrato. It is my hope that with the advice I give you on this page, you will be able to skip this learning curve and develop a fine singing vibrato very quickly.
When it comes down to it, singing with a stunning vibrato is quite easy.
But it can take a long time to discover it when you don’t know how to do it.
It’s this “discovering” process that you need to get sorted. Once you “discover” how to get your vibrato going, it becomes easy to perfect it and enjoy the way it makes your singing sound wonderful.
So what I want to do here is help you to discover your vibrato. Like introducing you to a person, I want to introduce you to your vibrato. When we’re finished you will be acquainted with your vibrato and you can then build on this and improve.
I will also point you toward the best resource for learning to sing with vibrato like a pro. More on this in a moment.
Now, before I introduce you to your vibrato there is one very important thing you need to know.
What you need to know is, when you hear a singer with magnificent vibrato It’s nearly always a sign that they have their singing technique in order. Good vibrato is a sign of good vocal technique.
So not only will you learn to develop an excellent vibrato, but you will also strengthen your vocal technique as well!
Ok, so let’s get into it.
The easiest way to learn how to sing vibrato is to do an exercise that makes it easy to get a taste of what vibrato feels like. In other words, there are some foolproof methods that actually “force” you to get your vibrato going.
Once you do this, you will know what it “feels” like to sing with vibrato. After this you can simply practice getting this feeling back to improve from there.
The easiest exercise is to put the palm of your hand just above your belly button on the soft area below your bottom ribs.
Sing an easy note and gently “pump” in and out with your palm. Try and pump at a rate of around 3 to 4 pumps a second. As you do this, listen to the way your voice automatically wavers in a vibrato like fashion.
Now, obviously you’re not going to sing with your hand “pumping” in and out on your tummy.
That’s not the point. The point of this exercise is to allow you to see what vibrato feels like.
Once you’ve done the exercise for a while, take your hand away and try and re-create the feeling of vibrato. I bet you’ll be able to get a few vibrato cycles without too much effort.
If you can’t, go back to the previous exercise and pay close attention to the way it feels as you do it. Then once again, take your hand away and try and get the feeling back.
Learning to sing well is all about paying really close attention to the way things feel when you are singing well. When you are doing something correctly, you can then build on it and cement this technique into your voice.
So practice the exercise I’ve just told you! The more you practice it the more you will understand where your vibrato comes from. And the more you’ll be able to get vibrato going without the aid of your hand.
The resource I promised you earlier can be found at this website. If you want to learn how to sing vibrato there is no better training. You’ll have the vibrato of a pro in no time!
One last thing.
If you can’t get your vibrato going straight away, don’t panic. It’s all about continuing to play with it until you reach that point where it just “clicks”. It took me years to learn to sing vibrato, but with the information I’ve just given you I promise it will take you much less.
