In Skillshare’s unique philosophy, everyone is a teacher, and everyone is a learner. Rather than a traditional lecture format, courses are offered within a global online learning community in which learners collaborate and learn by doing. Instructors are industry leaders who share their skills with anyone who wants to learn. No credits are offered. Founded by online entrepreneurs Michael Karnjanaprakorn and Malcolm Ong, Skillshare’s online “campus” was launched in April 2011. Its catalog has grown from 15 to more than 250 online courses that cover creative arts, entrepreneurship, branding and marketing, lifestyle and technology. The School of MakeOurMark, with courses in photography, illustration and tattooing, was launched in October 2013, and the School of Design went live the following month. Among the instructors who have taught courses are Seth Godin, founder of online marketing firm Yoyodyne, who teaches a class on entrepreneurship; DJ Young Guru, who leads a course on mixing and recording; and actor, writer and director James Franco, whose course focuses on screenwriting for short films. You can begin a Skillshare collaboration by taking an introductory course in a particular area to learn, for example, the fundamentals of Photoshop and expand your knowledge with a five-part, in-depth Photoshop series.

Course Description

The ABC of Singing - Part 1 - A is for Alignment

This video series is aimed at people who are complete beginners but would like to learn more about singing.

In this video, we go into detail about Alignment. It's an important and often-overlooked aspect of singing. You need to look after your body when you sing, otherwise you aren't going to be able to sing at your best.

It's all about noticing any unnecessary tension you have in your body, and trying to release it.

Part 2: B is for Breathing

In this video, we are covering Breathing. Breathing is so important! It's one of the things which if you don't' get it right, it is pretty-much guaranteed to adversely affect your singing.

One of the things a lot of pupils struggle with is knowing how to do deeper breathing. Some people call this abdominal breathing or diaphragmatic breathing.

The first thing to note: the diaphragm is important for the INHALE ...

Part 2: B is for Breathing

In this video, we are covering Breathing. Breathing is so important! It's one of the things which if you don't' get it right, it is pretty-much guaranteed to adversely affect your singing.

One of the things a lot of pupils struggle with is knowing how to do deeper breathing. Some people call this abdominal breathing or diaphragmatic breathing.

The first thing to note: the diaphragm is important for the INHALE ONLY. After that, it's the transversus abdominis (corset muscle) that controls your EXHALE.

The one thing out of that process which pupils find the most difficult is controlling the exhale. Specifically, knowing what it feels like to utilise the corset muscle, being able to manipulate it when needed, and control the utilisation until the end of the sung phrase.

Part 3: C is for Connection

I am going to go some quick and easy exercises which will help you to be more familiar with what it feels like to use your core muscles when singing.

This subject can be confusing, as different genres of music refer to the 'core' and mean different things. In Musical Theatre, it refers to the core muscles but also the alignment of your whole upper body. When I am talking about the core in this video, I mean parts of your anatomy.

This is a guide in how to engage these muscles, to build up your knowledge of how to engage them at will and incorporate that into your singing technique.
