Vocal technique, exercises, tips and relevant resources

Are you a beginner or advanced singer?

Do you dream of singing like the performers from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey? There is no one magic formula to learn to sing like them, but with dedication and a healthy singing routine, you can make great progress. In this article, we'll explain the unique vocal styles and techniques displayed by the film's primary performers and offer practical advice for honing your skills.

One of the notable vocal techniques showcased in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is belting. Belting is a contemporary technique of singing, where the singer extends their vocal range to achieve a dynamic, powerful sound. It’s a technique that requires vocal strength, breath control, and resonance.

To learn how to belt, you need to do exercises that focus on breath support, proper posture, and vocal warm-ups. Our Pitch Training tool offers interactive vocal warm-ups that will help develop your pitch accuracy, as well as exercises for range, agility, and breath control.

Another distinctive aspect of the performers' vocals in The Hobbit was their use of vibrato - a method of adding a quavering effect to the voice that adds depth and emotion to the singing. Vibrato exercise videos can be found on our reference list to help develop control and practice vibrato techniques.

The performers in The Hobbit also sang in harmony in many of the movie’s musical numbers. Singing in harmony is not easy, especially if you’ve never tried it before. You need to develop your ear-training abilities, a sense of pitch, and a knowledge of how harmony works. Our Pitch Accuracy Test tool will help you develop accuracy by following simple melodies and songs.

One of the best ways to learn to sing like the performers in The Hobbit is to practice by mastering the songs showcased in the movie. We have a Song Search tool that allows users to search for songs by their vocal range, difficulty, and genre. Find the perfect song to match your particular Voice Type and Style.

Additionally, mastering the song requires more than just singing, it's also about delivery and emotion.
