  1. Need some helpful feedback please

    I would appreciate some feedback on what I'm doing wrong. I am signed up to do the Americas Got Talent live auditions in December. Still haven't settled on my audition tunes but working on technique and adding some of my own flavor. Don't pay attention to the piano playing, I know I made a few mistakes lol. Thanks!
  2. Hello from Kansas!

    Hi... my name is Darren Ehrlich and I'm from a little town called Galva Kansas. I'm 52, a disabled veteran that now does custom woodworking, which also gives me time to work on my music. I sing of course, play guitar, bass, piano and drum and i'm trying to learn the violin. I sang in a band back in the 80's called Switch, you can find a couple vids on YouTube if you search for Dodge City Switch. I am planning to audition for Americas Got Talent this December. I sent in a video last year and didn't get any where. Going to do the live one this year. Figure it will probably not get anywhere either, but at least I will get to see Vegas LOL. Not sure this will work, but I'm going to paste a link to a video on my YouTube page. This is one I was practicing for my audition last year. Barry Manilow, Weekend in New England. It's a shortened version because you have a limited amount of time. My piano playing isn't great, and the first part is a little rough but it gets better. Anyone have an opinion if I have a chance? Here is the link
  3. For the past few months i have started seriously practicing to improve my singing voice. this is a difficult thing to do since my singing voice is probably one of the worst you have ever heard. I tried so many different techniques on my voice but all my attempts resulted in tragedy.....until today I understand That I still have a very long way to go before my voice becomes somewhat decent, but I think I made break through today, I think I may be on the right path but I would love to get some honest feedback for my singing. I feel that if I continue to practice and train my voice the wrong way, that i might actually develop bad singing habits, honestly I think I already have done this and it is horrible. I would love to hear if you guys think I should keep practicing or just give up. So the craziest thing happened today, I was just chilling doing nothing when a random yawn hit me, believe or not but this yawn is what helped me improve my voice 10 fold. as i let out the yawn I heard and felt my voice make a beautiful sound, I then applied the same technique of yawning into my way of singing, its hard to explain but its like I simply opened up the back of my throat and sing from the inside of my chest/stomach area. I know my voice is not good, but I do think I made some decent progress, keep in mind that i literally just learned this new way of singing a few hours ago so i intend to practice using this technique unless you guys think I should continue searching for a better way of singing. I uploaded 2 recordings, one is labeled "before" and the other is labeled "after" the "before" recording is from last night and the "after" is from this morning. https://www.chirbit.com/xxdutchiexx/playlist/nmHGa

  5. What is my Vocal Fach

    Help me decide what my vocal fach is! I'm untrained and a 14 yo girl, so please ignore if my technique is nonexistent (which it is), and just help me get an estimated vocal fach, which I've been trying to determine for the past 8 months out of curiosity. My range is a rough G3-F6, sometimes more or sometimes less. People have told me that I'm a mezzo-soprano with whistle notes, but I really have no idea.
  6. I thought I would have a go at another Elton John song. Let me know what you think.
  7. My song passengers was a quick filler song for my EP "Blink of an Eye" but has turned into one of my biggest "hits" being extremely popular at live shows. What are your thoughts on it?
  8. Journey Practice

    It has been a while since I have posted anything. If you have any comment good or bad let me know. Thanks.

  14. Review my Singing Please :)

    Hey so i've been singing for about 12 years now never had lessons sadly as i could never afford them. i'm 20 years old and i'm wanting to do music as a career either teaching with gigs on the side or just straight up gigging if i'm good enough for it. I have a few videos on my facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/ConnorSydneyHodgson/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel I ask my friends and family for their feedback on my singing but its always been yeah you're good which is just frustrating because good is never enough and it's not as detailed as i would like to know. i can take the most brutal criticism so dont hold back i really need to hear it! I would like every small thing i do wrong pointing out and advice on what to work on if possible! Look forward so seeing the reviews! Kind Regards Connor Sydney Hodgson

  18. We're working with one of the best independent UK Dance labels and currently looking for a vocalist for an exciting new release. We need a singer with a vocal tone very similar to Marvin Gaye to record a topline on a dance track. You must either be able to travel to London to record or have access to recording equipment to record the vocals.Once accepted through to the workspace we'll request you to record a short vocal demo which we will submit to our client for them to make the final decision. If you are then chosen for this project, we'll provide you with the full brief for you to be able to record the topline. The budget is £250/£300 for recording the vocal topline.

  19. Smoking and Singing

    I hate myself for even asking this and i KNOW i should just give it up, singing or not singing, but i wanna know if anyone knows how hard does cigarette smoking affects your vocal abilities.   I know it cant be good, and im reall trying to quit, and singing is probably my biggest motivation for quiting singing, tough its extremel hard. Im only 21 but ive been smoking  a pack of cigs a day for 7 years now.   Not to mention that this habit of mine is costing me 2-3 lessons monthly with Maestro Lunte. Guess you have to be a moron to spend money on poison. but i guess im that moron.   So did anyone read up on any studies of how ciggarette someking affects your ability to sing?
  20. The Mystery behind Key Change

    For the pipe organ an open valve will trigger the sound of the pipe. The key of a song tells us which valves we can open safely to stay in harmony. Singers have a comfort zone All singers have a comfort zone, a range of notes that sound best and can be performed effortless. Despite of the ability to expand the vocal range through training, every singer has an individual physical quality which is responsible for the position of the comfort zone within the vocal spectrum. We may not consciously observe this, but the habit of speaking is already giving us a clue about this range. In classic musical education we classify this range by defining voice types, though this method is mostly a helpful convergence to reality. For the singer it is therefore essential to spend some effort on song choice, especially to ensure that a song lies within his or her vocal abilities. Of course that is not the only consideration during song choice, and if you are interested we invite you to read our article "Improve Your Song Choice" to find out more. Another possibility is to simply change the range of notes to be performed by changing the key of the song. The original key Every song was written in an original key. The key we know for any of these songs could be the one it was written in, or it could be the key used when the recording we know was produced. We still refer to it as original key. Original keys are usually relatively easy to access. They may be documented in sheet music, or available in databases, per example for DJ's that research harmonic mixing, among other sources. It also can be determined by examining the chords and notes of the song. It is to mention that a key can and oftentimes does change within a song. The key a song is regarded to be in is most often starting in the key and at one point returning to the same key before the end. Find out what exactly a key is, and how keys are transitioned in our article "Musical Keys and the Key Change". Here is an example. A song written or performed in a G Major key is based on the tonic note of G, and includes a system of notes defined by the major scale that is also based on the tonic note. The chord progressions used in the song will to a great extent lie within the scale, with the tonic chord being the foundation of those progressions. What happens between the use of G Major may be harmonic movement and/or modulation. Lead Vocals and original keys Here at Lead Vocals we consider our practice section as a tool to quickly review and learn the melody, timing, phrasing, and mood of a performance. In addition we think that the tool enables vocalists to study other artists by paying close attention to ingredients like dialect and pronunciation in language, the choice of placing words or phrases within rhythm and beats, any habits, and style and musical influences. Unlike other existing tools like per example some karaoke platforms we do not offer access to the same performance in multiple keys. But just recently we have introduced additional helpful information about many of the songs available here within the tagging system. At present we offer selection by tonic pitch, musical key, and scale information which can be helpful to explore new music. We think that from an educational point of view the choice of the tonic pitch is most interesting, because many melodies in songs may start or end with the tonic note. If a vocalist can deliver that note in a rich, strong, and compelling tonal quality that makes the audience want to hear more, then the song choice by tonic pitch may lead to the discovery of suitable songs for the singer. You may give this a try by selecting a song to practice by tonic pitch. Continue solving the mystery Find out why vocalists change the key of a song and how they approach the key change. In an attempt to solve the mystery behind the musical key we define what a key is, and explain the background of harmonic movement, chord progressions, and modulation. We also include the consideration of emotional characteristics for all keys based on the major and minor scale, that may play an additional role in the selection process for the vocalist. Further we're taking a brief look at common practice in recording sessions.
