Using Vocal Emphasis to Stylize Your Voice

Hey there, this is John Henny and today I want to talk about Using Vocal Emphasis To Stylize Your Voice. 

Now, what do I mean by vocal emphasis? Well, where you’re going to stress or put the energy of the note, in styles, like musical theater, especially a little more traditional musical theater not be rock-based, that we often get.

We’re going to enunciate a little more and we’re going to keep the energy a little more balanced and fluid through the words, such as I’ll exaggerate, what time are we leaving, and everything’s What time are we and now if I want to make it just maybe a little more pop or even a little more rock,

I want to put more stress on the front of the note and let the energy falls off towards the end. So that one time is we become more What time are we leaving? Right? The emphasis sits more at the front, we are taking too long becomes we are taking too long. And that change of emphasis even though it’s the same notes, it really changes how your voice is perceived. 

So, if you’ve done a lot of musical theater singing, and I will have students come to me with this issue, and people are telling you that you’re sounding too polished that you’re selling to musical theater, try putting more emphasis and energy at the front of the note and let the end of the note just fall away a little bit more.
