Pop singers often ad-lib or improvise, using their voices to bounce
around notes within a scale. On a keyboard, play all the notes in a
scale simultaneously, then sing the notes quickly, allowing your
voice to jump back and forth between notes. Practice with different
vowels as well. In order to be a good pop singer, you need to have a
feel for the music, which does not always adhere strictly to what is
written. The singer can add riffs and breaks, longer and shorter
notes, but the intention is to communicate a feeling.
Many pop singers switch from speech quality to belt to add emotional intensity. Belting uses the voice in the same way as speech quality but requires more energy and muscularity. Unlike other techniques, belting relies on keeping a higher larynx, taking high, shallow breaths, and using the muscles across the upper chest and back to stabilise the larynx and anchor the torso in preparation for the effort required to belt.
Thus lastly, a trainer will help you explore breathing support and management to facilitate pop and rock belting, interpretive and storytelling techniques to heighten a song's emotional impact, and ways to increase flexibility and create a balanced tone.
The trainer will also address the visual as well as vocal aspects of pop/rock performance, focusing on audience communication and effective use of the stage area.
