  1. Guide me, please!

    you saying this is a rhythm issue?
  2. Guide me, please!

    Your link is a video and I have limited data allowance so sorry cant afford to watch it But I am a native speeking English person and I too worked a lot on my enunciation, and I did a lot of tongue twisters which I have now finished doing and I think it helped me out a lot. they recon that tongue twisters are great for people learning new languages
  3. Should I start singing? Review my singing.

    The word to me is not a real word it is just a made up word, made up by our masters so they can lie to use like they lie to us about everything ells in life! The teacher I have now (Matthew) is a professional baritone opera singer and has all London bachelor degrees and everything. Any way I was talking to his mom and she mentioned someones name who was a talented X-factor finalist (cant remember his name have no interest in silly little pantomime shows like that) but if your a fan of that kind of thing then this guy is now some kind of celebrity. Any way this talented armature who had no previous experience or training (so the show claimed) had trained with Matthew and sang in the same opera house as Mathew for 4 years prior to this. I mean you could just not make up a bigger pile of then that really could you. Never-mind. Well on the bright side of things. this false pretence of 99.9% of people don't have talent when infact 99.9% of people are capable of learning to sing well. Keeps out competition But there again this is most probably why the OP (like so many other newbe's) will not return
  4. Should I start singing? Review my singing.

    Hum; let see; what dose talent actually mean The Cambridge English dictionary states it (someone who has) a natural ability to be good at something, especially without being taught: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/talent So I guess that would mean no one on hear has any talent what so ever

  6. Swollen ear from singing high notes

    Does anyone get a swollen up ear like deafness like your ears had popped on an airplane after a while of practicing high notes? Is this normal or bad techniques or too high of a note for myself or just doing it too many times? Thanks 2CIADB
  7. My song - "Passengers"

    Jarom; I don't want to sound disrespectful or rude as I know you are a professional musician But all your songs sound the same! and without you singing something a bit different with a different melody I just cant see you hitting the big time Have you tired covering/ practicing other artists that you have done nothing like before, songs that you never though about before that my give you some new inspiration and new art.
  8. Why is my voice cracking?

    Well there I was again; singing scales as you do. But today and a bit of yesterday my voice cracked when singing at this range; I can normaly sing these notes in my head vocie with out a problem but just now I can not! Anyone know what has caused my voice to start cracking? https://app.box.com/s/ukl64k9kxnsqrxfwuu4oq7vtfmpb5ubb Thanks 2CIADB
  9. Why is my voice cracking?

    Thanks But I have just gotten over a heavy belt of laryngitis and feling a lot better now and I hope to be back to singing scales and other strenuous exersises soon That full set of the piano is too much for me and I must take it easyer by doing only the bit that is in my vocal range
  10. Why is my voice cracking?

    OK I will do, but I think I will leave it a few weeks until I have finished this exersise I think you will like the end product Robart
  11. Why is my voice cracking?

    Dont think that would be advisable given the other comments to this thread
  12. Why is my voice cracking?

    I have been sining this set of scales for several weeks now; but as I said normaly my vocie dose not crack that low up the scale But I do train as much as I can within the time scale I can or before I am physically exhausted trying not to break my vocie
  13. Why is my voice cracking?

    CVT?? Tone/ timbre I am sorry to bouth of you but I have no idea what you are talking about. I sang the same scale exersise today with out any problems and I do not see what tone will make any differance to my ill voice I sang with yesterday If you are convinced this is a tone issue then I will upload another clip of me singing scales when I can manage to sing the entire piano at some opint over the weekend

  16. Lost part of my voice

    I have had this heavy cold since Christmas. It started to go away and as it was going I continued to practice sirens; but I have lost a good part of my voice and have swelling in one of my ears and am unable to train. This groggy voice I have, I had for about a week now and is not going away. The doctors in this country are a waste of space. Any ideas please

  19. Lost part of my voice

    So I got the required ingredients from my Pharmacy (or as close as) 1. Now that is a proper pieces of kit! That much that the phone call from the chemist to the doctors said it was the best thing since sliced bread and I got myself a "Neil med" brand I have not tried this and I do not have nasal congestion, but will try tomorrow But I fail to see how it will improve my airways passage since I am only blocked up in and around the through areas 2. that Hydrogen Peroxide is just ear drops, got some of that cleaned out a little and better but time will tell 3. Zytec, Allegra. Well that is a packet of hay fever tables Taken one of those but I don't really have sneezing and runny noise 4. Chinese Herbal Remedy; well the best thing they could find was a cough medicine that soothed the through from soreness And to be honest that has no really worked Well I guess the only real option is antibiotics; dont know how I will go about this Interesting no.1 Have you tried this before you went on stage?
  20. Lost part of my voice

  21. Singing 10 vowels to different notes

    So after I sang to someone I was told I needed to work on my oh and ow vowels as they are causing my tone to accidentally darken So I have done what was recommended but decided to sing 10 different vowels of ee, ih, eh, a, ah, aw, uh, oh, ou, oo, instead of singing the recommended oh and ow And sang them to the pitch of this piano/ organ app which I recorded the notes from this link http://www.kongregate.com/games/buttonbass1/player-organ At the bottom of the page is an image of the piano. And inside the red lines of that piano are the notes I have sang I started at middle C (presuming middle C is the middle key in the piano) and worked my way up a note and down a notes at a time I will do more notes at a later stage though The links I have listed below are what I have done, the first link of each note is ee-ah and the second link of each note is aw-oo But I have worked hard at this doing each vowel at each note many many times Do you see there is much more work to be done?

  22. Singing 10 vowels to different notes

    But what he said after was; if you keep practicing these exercises from one to the other and back again, then you will have the resonance of each vowel shared in every other vowel so all the vowels will be equally resonance So I guess what he is say there is he is not just only singing 5 vowels solo (like I was on the above exercise) or the color vowels as Rob puts it But he is singing any vowel in between the said given 5 or 10 vowels So I take it you wont be buying tickets to go see him sing at the opera then
  23. Singing 10 vowels to different notes

    or maybe we should sing the vowels like this teachers tells us to
  24. Singing 10 vowels to different notes

    No I am not a student of the four pillars! those 10 vowels where recomended for me to practace by another member of this forum I was told i needed to work on my oh and ow vowels going as high and as low as I can so that is why I created this task
  25. Apologies if this is in the wrong part of the forum (as I am sure it is) but I am sure there is a correct forum for Robert Lunte's Four Pillars. Its just that I can't find it. So I am sure the mods will move this in due course I got "The Four Pillars last week and have just started on it but I am not sure I have started in the right place I started from the what looks like the beginning until I ran into some stuff that is a bit more advanced Well I stated with opening up my courses, then modules, then prepare for your TVS training, then I got to the dropdown of "the four pillars of singing download work out files" And I downloaded and have been playing the first 2 sets. First set was lift up pull back. And I think I am supposed to sing from one octane to the next one up then go into my head voice So hear is a link to me trying to copy the video : https://app.box.com/s/vckhva09yqffwz91fjebe77cqrnk4672 And the second set of Track and release. Well I just can not do it! doing hum hum hung, it just turns into a nasty hummy exercise that leaves me breathless
