This research study focuses on the practical application of He-Jiguang's vocal music art in vocal music classroom teaching. The purpose of the study is to provide valuable insights and instructional strategies for teachers and students in their pursuit of vocal excellence. The research was conducted through a combination of literature review and qualitative research methods, including interviews with key informants who are experts and inheritors of He-Jiguang's singing method. The research site encompasses the Changsha Song and Dance Theater and other areas in Hunan Province known for their rich cultural heritage and unique teaching methodologies. The research results revealed a shared understanding of concepts such as natural singing, broadening strengths, reference and development, and the concept of "Rong Hui Guan Tong." These findings provide a theoretical and practical foundation for effective vocal music classroom teaching. The study suggests the importance of establishing a strong foundation for vocal skills, developing an unobstructed resonant cavity, balancing natural voice and falsetto, and achieving coordinated transitions between registers. By incorporating these insights into instructional strategies, vocal music educators can enhance the quality of vocal music education and contribute to the development of talented singers in Hunan, China.
