Music and Singing: How to get it right?

So, the first step is doing what we wrote on the previous post. 

You then have to work on finding out your best Do-Re-Mi sequence by testing your mouth.

Two things seem to matter: Position of the tongue and stress applied to the vocal chords.

As impressive as it may seem, when we sing The Sound of Music along with Julie Andrews, we start having some insights: The notes have to do with the position of the tongue in our mouth.

Basically, whilst the first Do should be at the tip of the mouth ceiling, front, the last one should be high at the back. 

We should try to put our tongue always in contact with the mouth ceiling as we sing.

We should also observe the pressure applied on the throat and choose the lowest possible pressure as our most natural, and therefore, best to stick to, sounds.

After we do that, we must sing with Julie Andrews The Sound of Music over and over until we can repeat it in the same way and without feeling as if we are injuring our vocal chords or throat in any sense.

We then must try to be able to do the notes in the right order (Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti-Do) and backwards, just like in the song.

It comes the time for the So Do La Fa Mi Do Re. We then should practice singing just like them, but accompanying with our hands and tongues the changes in the notes (Do is at the edge, front, and both Fa and So are by the middle, for instance).

We are over this song when we can do the right movement with our tongues in all parts in which they have the names of the notes and we can keep the note happening inside of the words in the two sentences they have there.

They are two groups of seven notes.

The words are When you know the notes to sing You can sing most anything.

Anything takes three of the notes.
