Helping a Singer with Vibrato
Date: May 20, 2010
Anyone out there have success with methods to help singers "get" vibrato? I'm working with a very musical man right now who has sung in choirs for years, but has never had voice lessons. His voice is seemingly "held" in a straight tone mode.
My understanding of vibrato is that it will happen naturally, if the singer's vocal mechanism is relaxed and the air flow is steady. Therefore, I've been working with him on breathing, support, and relaxation. He's still singing "straight," and his pitch is quite often flat as well.
Any magic fixes out there?
