One of the hardest things to learn to do as a vocalist is soft singing. Fortunately, learning to sing softly can be made a little easier with the right knowledge and correct techniques.
You see, all too often I hear young singers stressing and straining their voice to achieve maximum output. Sure, it can sound exciting to hit those big crescendo notes at full volume, but those mountaintop notes need to be contrasted against quieter ‘valley’ notes. Personally, I’m drawn to those singers, regardless of genre, who create variety using soft singing. I want to be intrigued and kept guessing as to where they might take me next.
