  1. Hi guys! I'm Rodrigo again. I hadn't been training due  flu I had and now I started again. As you may guess, I'm a begginer and I have tons of ideas and questions. This one is really cool, and you will see why. I found out that the FBR is awesome but it has tons of information and for the part-time musician, it is critical to know what to practice in order to make more productive sessions. I've been playing gutiar for 15 years now, and also I play a lot of styles (classical, rock, acoustic, percusive, etc) and the key to progress and still have fun is to have goals. I mean, personal, realistic and short-terms goals that you can acomplish in a few weeks or months and then move on to another thing. Set a new goal, and keep moving. Now that I'm into singing, I can have practice sessions for 45 min 5 to 7 times a week. Some of them even until 1 hour. So I was doing this things to get better in things that I need to get better now. I do this: ---Resonant tracking 1 T&T Slow then Fast 2 T&R the same way and 3 R&R only fast ---Support training: Robert's excercises and a few more that I've been doing since I took classical lessons, more focused to feeling the awearness of the support process ( really easy ones, but gives awesome results) ---Onsets Well there is a lot here in the book. I have to get more compression, and I tend to sing with a lot of dark overtones amplified. And an excess of these does not sound well for me. What do I do? The following: Q&R since F3 to F3 (Sometimes G4 or A4, if I can do them without push, pain or constrictions) and I repeat 2 times that onset in every note, except for Db4 to E4, when I repeat 4 times the onset. I do this because my bridge is around those notes. And Robert says we have to practice those notes harder because those are the difficult ones (and I is so true!). Then I follow with a few attemps of A&R. If it is too hard for me, I don't do it. I listen to my body. After that, I do edging onsets in the same range, maybe 2 times per note. Sometimes 3. ---Sirens Well, not too much to say here. I do melodic 5th as Robert show us. Two times, at least, focusing on Q&R onset and some of T&R. I don't go too high, at least not for now. I hope my way to train this can inspire you to think and organize your practice schedule if you're not doing it now. For the most advanced TVS people... how do you practice the FBR? Do you think I'm doing it right? Rock-on!
  2. Hello guys,my name is Luka I must say that only after few hours of reading book,and about hour of watching videos ,I was able to do this(It is probably bad and for sure needs more practice ,but still before this it was like dream for me to hit those notes without hurting my voice ) :
  3. Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Annie. I recently bought The Four Pillars after sifting through Youtube singing videos for about a month.   I'm in a folk duo (psychedelic/prog folk)  in the San Francisco bay area.  I have only taken lessons here and there through the years and basically have no vocal technique knowledge. I feel that my vocals are ok but not exciting. I have always thought of myself more as a songwriter than singer, so haven't given as much thought to my vocals as I should have.   I want to improve, get stronger, more creative and to sound exciting and more expressive. I was inspired by what I saw/heard of Robert on Youtube.   I'm finding The Four Pillars really interesting and full of ideas and things that I've never heard of before. It's a little daunting but I'm up for the challenge.   Here's a video created several months ago of me singing Neil Young's Mr. Soul with my duo just to share where I'm at now vocally.  
  4. My student Will Scott just recorded this tribute to Queen, "The Show Must Go On"... sounds great!  
  5. Couple Of Melissa Etheridge Covers

    I did a show a while back doing some Melissa Etheridge covers. For some reason I couldn't share the videos but I finally got the downloaded and up to Youtube so thought I would share them   Come To My Window -  I Wanna Come Over -    I've always wanted to be able to do her songs. Was able to do a whole 45 minute set screaming my head off without even losing my voice. Was totally awesome. Definitely once of my favorite shows to date.
  6. The Four Pillars of Singing

    I decided to buy the Pillars..but since I'm self sustaining student money is a relative issue so i wanna be sure in what im buying. A little backstory. 2 weeks ago my high note was E4 and by just watching Luntes free vids on youtube i am able to hit A4. Now im certain his program works but i would like to know how far can it take me. Its not only range that i want but ofc its kinda main thing. Breathing stamina performance less fatigue is all stuff im out to get... so will Four pillars of singing coupuled with few skype lessons with Robert be enough to transform my voice. Or do you guys reccomend any other programe... just note that i think SLS is complete bull and i hate their methodology... I am aware the question s kinda dull but to sumarrise in a simple question "If i buy pillars will i be missing anything that other programes will give me?" Thanks!
  7. One of my students just released this production. I think it sounds great... wanted to share it.  
  8. An iphone production of my student and teacher in training, Fabricio Fonseca from Brazil, performing "Man In the Box" by Alice In Chains. This is actually a great song to learn and train for technique. Especially higher belts, forward palette vowels and distortion. Enjoy!   Learn more about The Vocalist Studio training program, "The Four Pillars of Singing" .     Alice In Chains - "Man In The Box" - Fabricio Fonseca - TVS Student / Coach  
  9. Amazing DREAM THEATER Tribute! - Fabricio Fonseca from Brazil sings "The Spirit Carries On". Fabricio is a renown voice coach from Brazil that came to Seattle to train for the TVS Certified Instructor program and enjoy Seattle for the first time. Together we produced this great video. It is just the beginning Fabricio Fonseca! I look forward to our partnership and friendship. Thank you Dream Theater for a great song to train and cover.     "The Spirit Carries On" - Dream Theater - Fabricio Fonseca  
  10. A nice endorsement from one of my clients who came to Seattle to train in the TVS Training Intensive for 12 hours. Congratulations to Jeffrey Hunt... who did a great job! It was really rewarding to watch Jeffrey take in the methodology and get immediate results... the look of satisfaction and happiness he had all week was really a reminder of one reason why I do this...
