Singing Tip Number 1 – Tuning into your true vibration. The importance of humming. As you go about your day, hum softly to yourself as much as possible. It stops your mind from over-thinking and gets you familiar and comfortable with your own natural vibration. Both your speaking & singing voices are a natural extension of “the hum”.
If you have problems singing in tune, humming also helps in re-calibrating your voice from the inside out, in order to tune into the notes coming from outside of you. Once you get the feeling of the vibration inside, you’ll realize how easy it is to match the notes coming in from outside of you . You’ll also notice how good it feels to just sound like yourself. In those good vibrations that are so satisfying you’ll feel less and less of a need to sound like anybody other than yourself.
Beautiful choral surround sounds are a very pure type of healing music. An example of this is shown here in the video called One Collective Breath – “The Forty Part Motet”. This piece was recorded by Canadian sound installation artist, Janet Cardiff. She recorded it with eight different choirs. The piece is coming through forty separate speakers that surround the room. In the video you can see the people as they enter into the center of the room.
You can sense the listeners relaxing as they become engulfed in the choral sounds coming from the forty different speakers surrounding them. As they continue to open up and relax into the pure vibrations of this healing music, they become very present. This allows for a self-healing mechanism to unfold within. By allowing the sound to permeate the body, the mind slows down, the breath deepens and the heartbeat drops. This simple act of surrender creates a sense of well-being and a peaceful connection to oneness.
