EsZ – “Liquor & Emotions” – introspective and emotional

Hip-hop has been cranking out bangers and high energy anthems for decades, but the average genre historian is well aware that dark or emotional thoughts on a chill backdrop is not a foreign concept for the game. After all, profound moodiness feels rather natural for a culture that grew out of urban plight and the trauma of purposely disenfranchised people. It makes sense that at least some mellow tunes in the genre, reflect deep-thinking speculation, in what artist EsZ, describes as thoughts on “life, growth and fake friends” in his track “Liquor & Emotions”. The song is a drunk text

Who Needs Professional Singing Lessons?

It is true that people have been endowed with various natural abilities. Likewise it is true that these gifts can either prosper or fade away according to how we practice them. Talent in singing, can be improved more through singing courses and specialized lessons.

More individuals today are taking up singing and vocal courses to harness the benefits these have to offer. We often hear about voice training where aspiring singers of all ages can learn and better their singing and performing techniques, but just what do these schools offer and do?

Good singing schools employ passionate and skilled artists to impart their knowledge to students who desire to develop their singing and musical capabilities. Formal singing lessons produce opportunities for students to achieve their full potentials as artists. They receive several subjects in a singing program, including proper breathing techniques, correct singing techniques, proper maintenance of the voice and even various tips on how to perform better on stage.

More significantly, singing lessons bestow confidence to students. Singing on stage is very different from singing with your friends at home. For example, when performing to larger audiences, nerves and even shyness can be a significant nuisance that keeps performers from singing at their best and hitting the right notes.

Singing lessons teach students how to overcome shyness, nervousness and conquer stage fright. Students are likewise instructed about blocking, or the proper way of moving and walking on the stage. They learn how to convey their feelings and connect well with the audience, or even how to dominate the two most common singing approaches which are called ‘singing through your chest’ or ‘singing through your head’.

Singing lessons: practice makes perfect!

Many of today’s most successful pop singing idols, like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys and even Josh Stone have had formal singing lessons or work with vocal coaches. Most recently, Adele turned to a vocal coach after loosing her voice, for an alternative singing method that enables her vocal chords to avoid damage.

Selecting a professional singing school or vocal coach will significantly affect the improvement of your singing and musical expertise. You must therefore ensure to choose a school that will set solid support for a successful singing career. Great singing schools know how to gauge the abilities of their students. They analyze the singer’s capabilities, to identify the level of the singing program most suited for them. In addition, vocal lessons at singing schools provide the 3 key factors necessary in having a better singing voice;

1. KNOW YOUR VOICE. Vocal lessons allows you to get to know your own voice. When you start knowing your own voice, it is easier to correct mistakes that you make. You start knowing where you need to correct your mistakes and where improvement needs to be made.

2. THE RIGHT JUDGEMENT. Another important factor of vocal lessons would be having the right judgement. Family and friends tend to tell you what you want to hear and although it may be nice, it is not always what you need. When it comes to a vocal coach they tell you exactly what you need to hear, although it may not be what you want to hear. By having this you are able to know where your vocal faults lie and where you need to correct these issues.

3. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT. Practice is the key to any vocal lessons, it is not possible to have any proper practice without any vocal lessons. Practice will make you become a better singer in many ways and you will grow very quickly by a good amount of practice you put in.

Professional music schools are often also a gateway to prestigious openings, competitions and other singing opportunities.
