Singing

Singing is a universal language. It may be defined as creating musical tones by human voice. Singing may have different objective for different people. For some, singing is a mere hobby, whereas for others it could be a profession or a lifestyle. People who love singing finds it to be the best mode of entertainment. The harmony of the soothing words bouncing off the vocal cords can surprisingly relieve a lot of tension and stress. The power of singing can be felt when an over-whelming sensation of patriotism surcharge through our physical being on hearing the national anthem. It is a way to propagate ideas. The ideas to save the planet, promoting peace, opposing inequality, preserving environment and so on. Singing has been proven to be a great medium to deliver a dynamic message. The words and tune when sync properly can turn out to be very impactful to send a strong message. Advaith School in Hosur realizes the value of singing and its influence on our students’ overall development and therefore singing is exercised everyday at Advaith.

A beautiful song that touches the heart, carry all feelings and thoughts if expressed in a right way. The rhythm, the rests, the pauses, the chords of a good song harmonise perfectly with the heart and beat with it. Professional singing may appear to be a simple process which is far from the truth. A tuneful singing requires a lot of practise and dedication to master. It involves a lot of vocal techniques and coordination of voice box, tongue, lips, stomach and, the lungs upon one another. However, the best part of singing is, it need not be perfect if one enjoys it.

The objective is to strike out the shyness which hinders the surge of confidence in a child to face the stage and express oneself more freely and authentically. Their boosted confidence helps them to grow all the more as it instinctively spills across into the rest of their lives in and out of the school. In Advaith School, Hosur, we realise that singing is a way of human’s self-expression. It is a way in which the emotions, ideas, feelings, enjoyment and satisfaction is expressed. It is an interesting way to train the sense of hearing to appreciate the elements of music such as melody, harmony and rhythm.

The nervousness and stage fear can sabotage the confidence of a child. In the early years if a child gets help with this issue, it can accelerate the progress a lot faster and better. Singing does exactly the same. It not only provides a platform to one who likes to sing and pursue a career in it, but also acts as a productive measure to ease up the tension and fear related to performance. Making singing a career is not an easy and common choice. Coming forth with a dream of becoming a singer at the time when children are groomed for professional courses and entrance exams is not easy. Making a choice to dream something and pursue the same needs courage. In Advaith a child’s dream is always safeguarded and it is ensured that he/she get the proper guidance to make the hobby a career. The impact of the words fine-tuned with music can cause revolution. Singing has always played a major role at times of revolt and support, love and anger, peace and war, satire and sincerity.

Singing is a part of life. Some does it for fun and others purely out of passion. Singing as a hobby need not be glamorised or perfect. This form of self-expression is not just soothing to ears but it also allays a lot of fear and anxiety. Passion for singing relieves a lot of stress, takes away the pain at times, brings out the tears that one is holding in for so long and, altogether, it shows who the real you are. As we open ourselves and our hearts to an authentic and real self, we learn new ways of expressing ourselves through music. In these times of uncertainty and fear singing can definitely make the ride smoother and more enjoyable. This will not be an exaggeration to quote that music can literally change life.
