  1. I thought I would have a go at another Elton John song. Let me know what you think.
  2. It has been a while since I have presented anything. I still have not found time for true practice but I have improved since receiving the FOUR PILLARS OF SINGING. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks
  3. Just wondering if there's anything I can do to improve my performance of this song, thanks in advance!
  4. Dear all, It has been a while that I have visited this forum. I have been very busy with my studies—having completed my BA in Musicology and currently finalising my MA in Applied Musicology. I did keep on working on my singing, however. Yesterday, “The Music of the Night,” a song that I auditioned with at the Conservatory of Rotterdam over a decade ago and that I had used for my singing lessons with many different teachers, was one I had never actually performed—until now! Indeed, there appears to be balancing issues with volume between me and the piano. On the other hand, I asked several attendees whether they felt there were problems with it, but they all did not notice them live. While I do think we could work on balancing our instruments, I believe the recording is augmenting the issue quite a bit. I am really satisfied with the performance—especially my acting abilities, intonation, enunciation, and stage presence. I could be more confident with the fermata notes just doing them as long as I want, rather than thinking I might do them too long (I think the “soul”-note [2:32] is great, the “be”-note [3:44] is just about right, the ”night”-note [5:20] is executed pretty well, but could easily be five seconds longer). I could also definitely stabilise and pronounce my “ring” more. Manolito Mystiq
  5. It has been a while since I have posted anything. If you have any comment good or bad let me know. Thanks.
  6. Hi Folks, It has been a very long time since I posted. I have made some jumps in my technical skills and so thought I should post a song again. This actually I did about 2.5 years ago. Unfortunately I don't have the older recording to do a Before-After comparison. but the old version was around the time when I started to learn to bridge but had still not learnt how to smoothly connect to the chest voice. I had lot of issues then with nasality and "Quacky" sound. I think since then I have addressed some of them. One thing that I would like to share in my experience is how important it is for us singers to keep pushing the boundaries every single time. When you become better in singing, it reflects not only in your ability to do tough songs at an acceptable level, but it really improves the way you can sing "simpler" songs..
  7. Hi everyone. Here is two songs of me singing. One pop classical and one classical. I haven't done any singing in many years and I got called by my former vocal coach if I could step in on short notice and we had two 1,5 rehearsals and I did these two songs. My range singing classical is usually around E2 to C5 Any feedback is appreciated. One teacher said I'm actually a tenor and that I am doing something unnatural with my voice. One said I'm a lyrical baritone One said I'm a low baritone And one said I can develop to a bass baritone. Links:
  8. I have a consistent issue that I definitely need to figure out how to fix... My voice isn't that loud to begin with, but the tone of my voice seems to be in a place where it just disappears into ambient noise. It doesn't carry over it like most other people's voices do. When I am in a loud environment (even just a place like a bar or restaurant with a lot of ambient noise), my voice does not carry at all and I find myself trying to speak louder to compensate. Which, obviously, is not healthy. The bigger problem comes in when I'm trying to SING. Without monitors it's just bad. Even WITH monitors, if the vocals aren't turned up pretty loudly in it, I don't sing as well. I unconsciously try to sing louder (because I can't hear myself well enough) which results in a not-ideal vocal sound, my range disappears, and I end up being a bit pitchy as well. In the moment, I don't particularly feel like I'm tense or straining in any way, although I am very much aware that I can't hit half the notes I usually can and I am aware that I don't sound quite normal. When I listen back, it clearly sounds like I'm trying to be louder, not quite like I'm yelling but in that direction. What is the core issue here, and how might I go about fixing it? I need to be able to hear myself better, and of course having a better monitor setup will help. But I really need to be able to hear my voice over simple ambient noise so that even in a less-than-ideal monitor setup, I can still sing well. And I have no idea what the true problem is that's causing all of this. Help!
  9. Hey there I have been a musician for a long time, but I have always struggled with singing and its never come naturally to me. I have only been practicing singing solidly for six months now and I have definitely improved, but I have no idea if I am any good. anyways here is a little clip of me singing. I would appreciate feedback. I sent it to my brother and he said it was good, but that when I go higher in pitch it doesn't sound as good. I would appreciate if you agree with his point and how to fix it. P.s i have paid thank you, Ben Jones.
  10. What is bad in my voice? Ive been singing for a year and a half and still cant say whether my voice is good or bad.
  11. Hello! When I was around 12, I was pushing my voice quite hard. I had choir, vocal lesson, and practiced as much as I possibly could. I was singing classical and Broadway songs ( "Per la gloria d'adorarvi" or "Who will buy" as a couple examples). I had the odd fascination of "how high of notes can I hit?" I don't believe I was ever overly reckless, but Lo and behold, my voice started feeling strained and tight, and I had to work harder and harder to produce sound. Eventually, there was no sound with the exception of a breathy whisper. After a few weeks of this, I went to have my voice looked at at the ENT, and they couldn't see much of anything, except redness and slight swelling. There was no certain diagnoses. Finally, around six months after me first losing my voice, I could speak fine, and sort of sing. It has been a few years since. My chest voice is still weak and shaky, and it cracks, breaks, and will occasionally leave me without a voice for a couple days. I miss singing though, and more specifically, I miss singing well. I don't know what to do. Could I have just badly strained my vocal cords? Would it have caused that much damage? Could that happen again? Should I try vocal therapy? I have no clue where to begin, or if I should just accept this and move on. Thank you for any help you can give me!
  12. Hey everyone, I'm a bass singer with no vocal training, tell me what you think about my voice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdn26dOERYs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVL5mCKh5WA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFn3Pmui6lk What are some tips you can give me to further improve my low notes, breathing exercises, etc. Thanks, Lyndon

  14. I've been having throatiness problems recently. Like, it hurts and I find myself pushing sometimes, when I sing in head voice, or belt too high. It used to not hurt, even when I sing at the end of my range. But now it's hurting. It might be from doing too much vocal slides. Because I've been doing that a lot recently. I used to do it a lot before too. Back then when I started doing it, I started having throat problems too, and I just assumed vocal slides were causing it and I just stopped. And I returned to normal. Also when I went to voice lesson and warmed up, I didn't do any vocal slides and it didn't hurt to sing at the end of my range. But when I went to practice my head voice at home, I did vocal slides, and my voice started hurting again. Any advice on how to cure this? Thanks.
  15. How you see i go to the Bb2 to the D5 at least, but it's connected my register? I leave the link below link: Test Sound

  18. Dear All, I recently did a cover of I Will by The Beatles, with the attached Soundcloud link as follows: Your comments and review are absolutely appreciated. Thanks all! Regards sincerely, Tim
  19. Dear all, I am new to this forum. My name is Timothy Christian Liu, and I am an intermediate singer who is working to be an aspiring vocalist. My genre includes folk, acoustic, and a bit of pop, although I went through a bit of classically-based training for a little while. I am glad to have found this forum and encounter a ton of talented singers here, where hopefully we can share and learn from each other. I recently did a few covers of these songs, just for your listening: Here, There And Everywhere (The Beatles) Cover - The Most Recent One I Will (The Beatles) Cover Cake By The Ocean (DNCE) Cover All I Have To Do Is Dream (The Everly Brothers) Cover Time Of Your Life (Green Day) Cover I recorded all the guitars and vocals (lead and backing) on my own. Granted, some of these recordings are done quite a while back when I have not learned to get the best recordings from my mic, so apologies for that. I hope you all enjoy it and comments and feedback are absolutely appreciated! Regards and God bless always, Tim
  20. I've been training with the foundation building routine religiously for the past week and I'm phonating really great sirens with Embuchore and larynx dampening. But during the sirens there seems to be two routes my voice can take as it rises in frequency. One route is into an airy falsetto, the other is a more stable chesty/twangy sound that I'm now able to carry up to b#4. My question is which route do I take? Am I pulling chest? Is that bad?
  21. Well, first of all Hi everyone im from Chile and how its say in title i need your help, i really wanna know what is my vocal register... i mean im a tenor? im a baritone? bass? you can note, can you tell me what my vocal range based on the audio attached ? what is my colour, etc, and an opinion about the music would be very well received. That's all I gonna waiting for your answers Listo.mp3
  22. I doubt that this has anything to do with training the voice but there is the possibility. I am a small skinny guy 130 pounds tops all my life. I have not been training aggressively but using more support more twang and cord closure. The issue is this, I have noticed that the soft tissue around my neck is swollen, also under my armpits. Normally my armpits are concave and there was a dip between the collar bones and sides of my neck. These areas are now puffy and convex. Earlier in life while working out with shoulder shrugs(holding weights) and other exercises meant to strengthen the neck and shoulder muscles this also happened. That was expected and looked for. Can just using more aggressive singing and stronger support cause these issues?
  23. Was working on lightening up and relaxing since I was experiencing a lot of tension after not singing/training for a while. Any and all feedback welcome. https://app.box.com/s/fuo1o1g58yyv54tlc2m6i5k9gawb9rxp
  24. Hey guys im providing links to 2 voice clips showing what i think is my mixed voice and then my falsetto. Ive heard people say my mix voice is a nasaly/chest falsetto. Could you tell me if thats the case? I doubt myself cause i go high as G#5 in mix voice. and im 17 and a guy and dont know if i should be able to sing that high. In my falseto clip, the first sound is me making an intentional chesty.nasaly falsetto becuase thats what i imagine a nasal falseto sounds like, not when people call my mix voice that. can i please get your opinion? is my mix voice actually a nsasal falseto? Also sorry my falsetto sucks in general, its hard to sing that high without mix, ive never had singing lessons but im lookin for a coach! and sorry my voice cracks at the end of my mix voice clip, its so annoying and i cant help it mix voice falseto Mix voice.wav Falsetto.wav
