On the Art of Singing

Richard Miller

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers creative practicing and how it can improve a singer's vocal technique and artistry. Creative practicing means creatively using the information given during voice lessons, and can take place only if it is based on specifics, with an understanding as to what is to be accomplished. Each solution opens up the possibility for additional progress. Every practice session should build on the creative excitement of solutions previously offered in the studio. Creative practicing allows the voice teacher to redirect youthful energy and enthusiasm without diminishing valuable assets. In the practice room, the student should sing a series of vocalises as though performing before an audience. The physical joy of singing must always be present. The practice room becomes a friendly and exciting place where vocal technique and artistry are united.

Keywords:   creative practicing, singer, vocal technique, artistry, voice lessons, voice teacher, vocalises, singing
