When it comes to enjoying live music, the venue can make all the difference. Being in a dull and lifeless place can even make your favorite bands seem less impressive. However, there are plenty of venues across the world that go above and beyond in providing people with a fantastic time and the perfect ambiance for the music they love. Here are some well-known and lesser-known spots worth checking out:

In England, you have a great variety of venues. On one hand, you have grand halls like the Royal Albert, and on the other, numerous delightfully gritty drinking clubs. But in between, you’ll find some truly special treats. Hovingham village hall in the North may seem like an unlikely place to start, but at The Shed, they host some of the coolest experimental jazz and folk events you’ll ever witness.

Music And Singing Tips – The Diaphragm Is The Source Of Vocal Power

If your objective is to have a centered voice and achieve effortless performance while singing, learning to have a relaxed or better known among singers as a “released” diaphragm is the way to accomplish this. It is not uncommon for first-time singers who seem to have large lung capacity and relaxed diaphragms to freeze up at the last moment. They should not be worried as there is nothing wrong with the diaphragm, but it may not function effectively for various reasons, which we will discuss here.

Getting through an entire song can be a challenge for any singer, especially if they are using incorrect breathing techniques, which can be distressing for those unaware of it. Even with superior breathing technique, singers may find that the demands of the song leave their diaphragm feeling constricted and uncomfortable. Vocal training students who have been singing and studying for years, and have been able to open up their voices, still struggle to access that final 15% of their performance, and they have no idea how to tap into it.

Can anyone truly think of the logical reason why a singer can’t obtain and master this “so-called” invisible energy? My previous …

First Steps Towards Reading Music

Can't read music? Don't harp on it.

Being musically inclined is a wonderful gift that involves having a natural appreciation for the incredible range of shape and form in music. One way to further develop this gift is by making progress in reading music, also known as sight reading. At an amateur level, sight reading is taken up as a hobby to deepen appreciation and learning. For those interested in pursuing a professional career in music, learning musical notation and symbols is an invaluable asset to raw talent.

Self-instruction is one of the simplest ways to start learning. Books, CDs, and online tutorials are great resources to begin with. Once familiar with the notation and symbols, finding a tutor or instructor who can provide individual lessons to build upon acquired knowledge is beneficial. For more serious students, enrolling in a specialized music program at a university provides a solid foundation in the basics of the discipline.

While playing an instrument is often helpful in learning how to read scores, individuals with exceptional singing abilities can also learn sight reading by using their voice as the primary instrument.
