A sua voz é um instrumento dentro do seu corpo e você deve aprender a usá-lo da melhor maneira, por isso eu separei 2 dicas que vão te ajudar nessa jornada!
1. Conecte seus ouvidos: É importante conectar o seu ouvido ao seu cantar. Prestar atenção em nuances, solos de instrumentos e vozes, backings, harmonia, melodia, ritmo, enfim… cada detalhe que faz a música acontecer. No começo, é natural querer imitar certo artistas, mas com o tempo, você vai encontrando a sua identidade. Importante: busque ajuda de um profissional.
2. Uma boa postura, bons hábitos, boa articulação, exercícios vocais e dedicação, são pontos fundamentais para que quer se tornar um bom cantor. Alguns exercícios, por mais estranhos ou “bobos” que pareçam, podem fazer muita diferença em pouco tempo. O simples, pode trazer resultados inesperados!

It's #MusicMonday and this week we've asked a good friend of ours, @itsjustsafy to give us her thoughts on an album she's been listening to.
Saffron told us she's been listening to "Atlas Underground", which is a collaboration album by Guitarist #TomMorello and a handful of chosen producers and vocalists. Morello is most notorious for his scratching which he made famous with bands: #RageAgainsTheMachine & #Audioslave .
His signature guitar sound is very apparent throughout the album with an interesting contrast to the electronic backbeats from the likes of Steve Aoki and vocals from artists such as Portugal and Marcus Mumford of Mumford and sons.
This is what Saffron had to say: "I think its a fantastic album with so many different ideas coming out of every song. The way Tom has worked with each different artist is truly fascinating and I'm already itching to delve into their individual works. My two favourite tracks are "How Long" featuring Steve Aoki and Tim McIlrath (Rise against) & "Battle Sirens" featuring Knife party"
There is some awesome stuff on this album, and we'd definitely recommend you check it out between now and next weeks #Musicalmonday .
In the meantime, we'd love to know what you've been listening to this week, let us know in the comments below!
Instrument quality can be an absolute deal-breaker when it comes to learning a classical musical instrument. How is one supposed to truly focus and zero in on the absolutely-infinitesimally-small coordinations of the wrist and fingers for intervals, when the violin is wailing in your ears? How is a player supposed to pay the strictest attention to exactness of pitch, when the G string doesn't speak, the D string is muted, the A string is strident, and the E string is whistling? How do you hone in on your bowing technique, when the holes in the resonance are grating on your ear?
When I finally decided it was time to truly invest in a quality violin after about seven months of playing, most of the instruments in my (still-rather-high) budget as a non-professional were still a bit harsh-sounding, strident, and lacking in overtones. But something caught my eye with a very elegant-looking, very-dark-varnished, 18th century English violin on their website. As soon as I started playing it, I knew it was the one. The tone was crystal clear, it had upper overtones that weren't strident, the whole instrument vibrated, and it had a deep, warm character to it. It was being sold for almost $10,000 less than it could otherwise easily be worth due to a major repair to the back panel that was done early in its life, a repair that really doesn't compromise much of anything with the instrument.
No one knows how serious they will become about their playing nor how successful. You won't be a beginner forever. You won't be in Suzuki forever. I have no idea where my growing skills will take me, and I don't even call myself a “beginner” anymore. I am what I am. I'm not a label. But what I do know is I feel like true detail work and serious growth began for me with the purchase of this pretty little violin I've grown ridiculously fond of and attached to—made in Hermitage Bridge, Wapping, London UK by Adam Martin in the 1790's—and a fair bit of help from @larsenstrings's Il Cannone! 🎻
“With the fingers falling…freely, the following intervals are produced : a whole tone between the 1st and 2nd fingers, a semitone between the 2nd and 3rd, and a whole tone between the 3rd and the 4th . . . This disposition of the fingers, which describes a perfect fourth between the 1st and 4th fingers, is the natural position of the fingers, and the basis of violin fingering.” — The Principles of Violin Fingering by I. M. Yampolsky, page 25
Adding all four fingers, for me first in Schradieck, is always a challenge for a string player. What I have found quite a few low-level violinists neglect or are unaware of is that the natural frame of the hand should always be mostly-maintained. It is easy, when unaware of this, to allow the wrist with the fingers to pivot to the right to regain a flat position, an easier position for the body, when playing lower fingers, requiring a pivot of the wrist for upper fingers, primarily the 4th. This makes acceptably-accurate intonation almost impossible because of the targets for the fingers becoming further away with more-complex hand motions. The fingers, instead, should stay directly above their natural positions on the violin and fall directly on the strings, sliding up and down the string freely of one another (later introduced in Part II of this book) for chromatics.
I spent several days playing erroneously in the lesser way, as I see many other novice and beginner violinists do on IG. Once these corrections were made, not only did my intonation improve tremendously, my tone quality became far better. I am still perfecting the accuracy of my fourth finger (and all fingers as relate to one another, to some degree), as can be expected. But it's closer and closer every day, and it doesn't hurt or strain me to play! I always say technique comes in response to a need, but a musician must learn where and how to respond to their needs. More practice won't cut it. It will only further ingrain irrational technique! Happy soul-searching!
P.S. If my squinting bothers you, hmu, and I will let you know which stand light to buy me as a gift! 😀
