    • Wow-Wee, huckeld do fuckel me be do dar, And after five thousand years of practice singing and vocal techniques, our new vocal coach Silly Little Man has discovered the second passaggio break!!! should he not be some kind of vocal wizard professor in a world class university like Oxford and Cambridge and teaching all of his silly little small minded students, that know very little (and that would indeed include  moderators and owners of this silly little site too BTW!). Infact out great professoradora (Wowe-wee time for his night hood) was the first silly little man to discover that there are two vales in the word hand (dose this one rekindle any memories silly little man). So we now move on and ask our trained professor (silly little man)  to explain to us where is this second passagio brake from the vocal link he has provided  Or dose the emperor still where nothing at all's_New_Clothes
    • Hi all!   What do yo think about my girlfriend's voice? I believe she should continue singing because she wastes her talent. Am I biased or is she really talented?  
    • You can go immediately to the quack and release onset and start working your vocal folds. 
    • Tell her to take some lessons on/ in rhythm exersises and if she dont want to listen then turn the volume up of your own gear so she has to follow the temp Get her to listen to a tempo thingy (no cant think of what it is called now, I have one that plays BPM to how you set it to)
    • Hi Robert... Please tell me.. if I'll enroll for this course..... then for the moment can I directly jump to that part "quack & relewse onset" as u mentioned? Or will u advice me to go from the starting of the course like from lesson 1 and then by covering all lessons sequentially reaching to that lesson in order?
    • My siren (it's getting to where I want it to be, but it is still work in progress) (I've deliberately allowed the harsh open tones at the high end of the scale, rather than alter the vowel.) NB It is all my own opinion, so don't let it turn into a slanging match as it has in the past. If you disagree, why not post your own siren and explain the differences. Objectives: 1. Throat, larynx, upper body and vocal tract should be completely relaxed and naturally posed. Nothing much going on there. 2. All effort is concentrated in the abs, trunk and diaphragm, regulating air flow and freeing the larynx. This should enable you to glide through the passaggio. 3. Maintain a single placement. Don't flip registration. 4. Keep effort uniform throughout. Any volume change (and it can be quite substantial) is caused by resonance shift only. 5. Sing on one vowel** but allow vocal tracts resonance shifting to cause its natural change in vowel. 6. Keep the siren slow. You should be able to hold abruptly at any point.  7. Relax. No "blasting" to force ascent at any point. 8. Control. No collapse on descent. 9. Both ascent and descent are important. 10. If you are running out of breath in the 20 seconds, your breath support is probably inefficient. ** But close the vowel to protect your vocal cords from damage if you find the vowel is too open to sing safely at higher pitches.  A characteristic heady resonance may kick in at around A4 for males. It may not sound pretty. Don't worry. The exercise is taking you through the second passaggio. Don't let it become a psychological barrier.
