I am laying out my working definition of what it means to have made progress in one’s singing technique. At this time, it seems that just a few sentences can cover the important points.
- Vocalize more easily in general. Make a variety of sounds more spontaneously, rather than “producing” them.
- Improvement in quantifiables such as range, dynamics, flexibility, and vowel clarity.
- The song seems to come from the singer himself, and not be a “reading” of the song.
- Greater positivity and joy in the act of singing.
Feel free to comment if you feel that something is missing or unclear.
