Help Stop Laryngial Tremens

All right, people. Listen up. This is going to be tough for some of you, especially the ladies. It’s time to lay down the law. Just because you can sing vibrato doesn’t mean you should sing every song that way.

Yes, I know. It takes skill and control. It also takes skill and control for me to turn a doorknob with my feet, but you don’t see me doing that in front of company.

Now calm down and take a deep breath. Together we can get through this.

THANK YOU!!!!

Ok, so as you probably know, I consider myself a "singer". I cannot STAND it when people sing with too much vibrato. And why the crap is it that people assume it's good just because there's vibrato?? I especially hate it when it is a soprano, and it is so warbly that you're not sure what pitch she means to be singing.

I think some people use vibrato to try and hide the fact that they can't hold a pitch....

I agree. Just because you can does not mean you should.

Amen. Ugh to the vibrato.
