How to Improve your singing

If you want to improve your Capoeira singing, do the following.

3. Work on the rhythm. Sing the choros again and again to get the rhythm down.

4. Sing the verses. Be aware that a lot of words and sounds get swallowed up from singing fast or trying to fit a lot of words in a few beats.
