  1. Alexander Kariotis Podcast & Vowel Modification

    Well I think at this point I just wanna say I have studied many if not all the schools we talk about here from estill to sls to cvt etc.. I'm saying from a personal standpoint and I'm a pretty accomplishment singer/teacher I hope (not trying to be cocky) that it is much different when you learn from someone like Alex as opposed to others Ive worked with. I'm gonna end this here and I'm glad everyone liked the podcast I have some more coming with some great singers I've sung with and teachers that are singers that I've met the last couple years. Peace
  2. Alexander Kariotis Podcast & Vowel Modification

    no the methods are different at least from what I have heard and that being Ken as well. I suggest find someone that studied it and take some time the book won't do good without a teacher I don't think
  3. Alexander Kariotis Podcast & Vowel Modification

    Also in modifying a vowel on certain notes in songs sometimes let's the overtones ring better so you hear the vowel intended.
  4. Alexander Kariotis Podcast & Vowel Modification

    No it means if you can't sing ee on an g4 and keep spreading to aye that register is weak. Through Bertons exercises you will learn.
  5. Alexander Kariotis Podcast & Vowel Modification

    In the bel canto/Berton Coffin method it isn't about that either. Once your weaker registers like mixed/vowel are stronger you don't have any holes in your voice so you can sing every vowel in every register not changing ee to eh or that bullshit. Sometimes you will if you want a certain intensity on a note but you'll have the strength to excute and technique to choose and stand on. Technique gives you the freedom and no excuses approach to singing. That is what true technique is..
  6. Alexander Kariotis Podcast & Vowel Modification

    Well a couple years ago I tried to show you and you didn't seem to want to know and stopped trying.(you said it would mess with your technique, I understand that). the method is actually simple to understand hard to execute it takes a while (not a few months or 2-3 lessons). Basically the vowel+ pitch+ intensity (sometimes) = the register. So for example an uh vowel on a F#4 is upper chest but the same pitch on an oa vowel is mixed voice, but on an oo vowel is vowel register or sung lighter no support (intensity) is falsetto. Sounds crazy I know but when you use your ears which is your best tool you hear and feel the difference
  7. Alexander Kariotis Podcast & Vowel Modification

    When you ask huh? I was saying there's another guy in the podcast I couldn't give out his name because of legal contract however he was stating the thing about terms and all the BS that gets thrown around YouTube and how can make you feel stupid but then you listen to the people putting out these programs and he was disgusted. And Alex doesn't mean they need to be world-class singers but they need to be able to sing everything that they teach and the things the student wants to learn meaning that their technique should be solid and that's what technique does it makes you solid.
  8. Alexander Kariotis Podcast & Vowel Modification

    Not me I know all that wish I didn't lol. it was the other guy that sat in with Alex and I. He basically was saying he didn't like how all these coaches have angles with big words and it would make him feel dumb and like he needed their course so he would buy it but then he would listen to them sing and be very discouraged and felt misled
  9. Alexander Kariotis Podcast & Vowel Modification

    Thank you so much as I always say I'm not to good at the social media posting but I'm trying with the time I have thanks again
  10. Just started a new singing podcast my first guest my teacher and great singer Alexander Kariotis . He studied with Pavarotti 's teachers and some others. Great podcast with some high notes for good measure and stories about Bel canto lineage etc enjoy or not whatever I like cake...also multi platinum singer can't disclose name but he studies with alex as well...
  11. Male breathy chest voice extension?

    ken Rampling is an sls/Ron Anderson student(ron is a Seth student as well)I studied with ron and Seth don't believe the bullshit knocking of everyone out there. They are trying to build "their brand".. also I don't sing in headvoice till about a4 (not really how we look at it)...the notes from around e4 to Ab4 are mixed voice(bel canto/classical/Pavarotti teachers technique(my coach alexander Kariotis). Mixed voice the way I learned it is a register not a blend. Fry chest, upper, falsetto and whistle a register, the vowel determines the register along with pitch and intensity . You can hear me in YouTube all my vids are me singing live and some studio but most live. You have to learn the mixed voice not the splatty ugly sound that some call a blend or headvoice if you want a solid balanced colorful voice...
  12. How do I get my stupid voice 4 notes higher?

    Keep practicing falsetto and think the falsetto as a deep oo with a buzzy top. Start working on leaning into the falsetto without pinching or cracking to full voice but swelling . Start around Bb3 and keeping working higher use ee and oo good luck
  13. Help in developing the grit

    Try and hold on to vocal fry all the way through your range you won't be able to get super loud but it will give you some grit. Or think of Cookie Monster and sing with that feeling combined with your normal voice . Also pretend to buzz a doorbell on and off. It's way easier to show than write about it good luck
  14. OMG?! He modified an "oo" on "you"?!

    yeah but you should be able to sing an oo vowel or and ee vowel through your whole range. At least I definitely want the choices
  15. OMG?! He modified an "oo" on "you"?!

    Hey gsoul please don't put words in my mouth this is what I said. The last thing I want to put out there is oh I can sound exactly like every artist I have to sing. I sing in the key, I sing the melody and I sing as close to the artist as possible. Some are better than others. But yes on a night if I'm getting a little shot or hoarse it gets that roughness of Bruno;)
