Here’s a 2018 blogpost about resonance. For more cool stuff about resonance, check out this video I just found:
I receive daily email updates from marketing guru Seth Godin, which have been inspiring me to make some changes in the way I approach my studio management. This morning’s advice resonated with me in a way that transcended business. It was:
Of course, we talk about resonance in singing, which is frequently called “ring” (or “ping” or “edge” or “focus,” but I like ring).
Ringing, in singing, is resonant. And when you engage things properly to cause sympathetic vibrations, magic happens.
Wringing, in singing, is manipulation and artificiality. You’re doing something contrived and unnatural and it will, ultimately, affect your technique negatively.
When you sing in a ringing tone for your audience, you are delivering your message with clarity and in a way that is pleasing and moving.
But when you seek to wring every last overtone out of a note, you are singing with too much pressure and force, and you are not engaging your audience.
So when we work on a resonant sound, work on finding balance and freedom to create clarity and magic. I’m working on new vocalise sheets, which I will distribute at the beginning of the fall semester (post-Labor Day), and we can go over any exercises with which you’re not familiar.
