Is vibrato in voice natural?

When good tone production, resonance, placement of sound, breath management, as well as relaxation, are in place, vibrato naturally results, or naturally occurs, in the singing voice. It is something that our bodies do on their own, not something that we force them to do.

How do I find my natural vibrato?

The key to a great vibrato is the speed in which you change between the two pitches. If you can oscillate between the two pitches around six times per second, you will have a very natural sounding vibrato.

How do I know if I have vibrato?

Start in your mid-range, and sing a straight-tone hollow, open, owl-like “ooh.” (If natural vibrato sneaks in, great, that’s what we’re going for. But no guiding, no manufacturing, no adding.) Your mouth should feel like it’s holding a baseball inside, open and round, soft palate high.

Is vibrato easy?

Vibrato is not difficult when you understand how to create it. When you are able to relax your vocal chords slightly it will allow them to oscillate freely between two pitches.
