In-Depth Final Blog Post
Here goes nothing!
Welcome to my In-Depth final blog post! And that’s probably going to be the motto of this project’s finale – because this has been pretty daunting and very scary. My In-Depth topic this year is singing, and over the course of the last few months, I have tried to improve my singing voice in areas like the clarity of my voice, phrasing, and vowel sounds. I have also gained lots of peripheral skills and perhaps courage because I set up a YouTube channel, learned to use a microphone, learned about vocal mixing and more! I chose this topic because I’ve always been passionate about singing since I was little and even did choir in middle school, but really wanted to hone in on those skills required to be a good solo singer.
I have learned tons of new singing techniques from my awesome mentor. In this wildly inappropriately named “How To Improve Your SInging voice in 5 Minutes” video, I spend 7 minutes and 40-something seconds imparting my gained knowledge on you. Pro tip: Settings cog > playback speed > 2x!
Once you’re done laughing at my influencer arc, check out my “fun” little online concert! I tried to vary up the genres and styles and apply the techniques I talked about in my earlier video. Try to see which techniques you can apply to the footage (if any…) and in an alternate universe, I would give you candy as a reward.
Pro-tip #2: Skip to after the dance break to get to the good stuff.
This video was very emotionally draining, and while I’m not exactly satisfied, I learned so much from it! I understand a lot more about what goes into being comfortable and charismatic near a camera, mixing vocals and audio in general, and even more about singing. Who knew I was bad at keeping time AND key?! Wild. Improvement is cool though, and I’m glad I made so much!
Thanks for reading/watching and have a wonderful rest of your In-Depth night!
