What is the secret to singing different genres of music?

Over the years, many aspiring singers have said "I love Rock but I just can't sing it" or " I could never sing jazz, I don't have the voice for it." Here at Rise Academy of Music we are here to tell you that is simply not true

The fundamentals to learning any genre of music are:

1. Breath Support

2. Stamina

3. An understanding and application of vocal placement and vowel modifications

Whether you or others believe your vocal tone suits a particular genre is a matter of opinion, not a fact. Once you master the fundamentals, you can then apply the concepts of music to alter and modify your voice to suit the genre of music.

Allow us to explain it with an analogy to do with pizza. Lets pretend the basic and standard dough is our fundamentals.

Every standard pizza base requires dough. In order to achieve a beautiful crust, the dough needs to have the correct ratio of ingredients and then worked until there is a spring to it. The dough then needs to take time to rise. Once the dough is ready, it is time to add your toppings. In this case the toppings are your concepts of music. The toppings determine the the flavour and type of pizza you will get. Singing works in just the same way. Once you have mastered the dough, you can then experiment with your toppings and create any style or type of music you wish. Have we made you hungry? Because we are!

Here at Rise Academy of Music we will demonstrate and teach you the concepts of music you need to sing in any

genre of music.

So "can i learn to sing Rock?" Absolutely.
