Technique of Legends!
“What most teachers don’t understand is that you don’t need to think about twenty different things every time you open your mouth. And you don’t need to study singing for more than a few weeks before you begin to experience positive results…It doesn’t matter whether you sing Pop, Rock, Opera, or Musical Theater. You should sing with a technique that allows you to just relax and concentrate on performing- which is what it’s all about anyway,
right?” -Seth Riggs

A Brief Introduction into Speech Level Singing
goal of Speech Level Singing is to teach you a way
of using your voice freely and clearly anywhere in
your range, with all of your words clearly
understood. This technique guarantees an effortless
use of your voice, allowing full and artistic
expression with one tone, one connected voice (in
other words, no breaks).
Speech Level Singing technique is versatile because
it supports every style of music. It is the
foundation upon which all singers can build their
own style and unique artistry. We do not teach what
to sing, but how to sing-- SLS can be applied to
pop, rock, musical theater, country, opera, or the
latest hybrid yet to be named.
the voice works:
larynx, the bump in the middle of the neck below the
chin, rises up during the swallowing process.
However, the larynx is also home to the vocal cords.
A lifted larynx while singing results in tension,
distortion of the words, and disconnection of the
voice commonly referred to as a “break”. Most
singers in an effort to belt or to sing in their
“natural” voice are actually straining, using
these outer swallowing muscles to produce their
desired sound, resulting in a high, or strained,
larynx. This is very damaging to the vocal cords.
Level Singing enables you to keep the larynx relaxed
and stable (eliminating the outer muscle activity)
as you sing through your entire vocal range--as well
as through every vowel and consonant combination.
The goal is to train the vocal cords to make the
adjustment of balancing with the flow of air. As a
result, the singer will produce the proper resonance
shifts through their bridges with no breaks or
glitches, resulting in a freer tone. This tone will
contain a balance of top, middle, and bottom
harmonic qualities, like a good stereo system. So,
basically the result is that you can sing easily
through your entire range with freedom and ease and
still be conversational and natural.
