    A siren

    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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Emperor'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.

    Singing out of time or behind the beat

    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?

    A siren

    My siren (it's getting to where I want it to be, but it is still work in progress) https://soundcloud.com/kickingtone/sah004rvp (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.

    What's Important About Singing to you?

    What isn't important about singing?
  13. To me, the important thing is having a message and being able to express that message in a way that is pleasing to the ears and conveys the meaning of the message.

    Well,... thanks guys for sharing your thoughts on this. Lyssie, I'm happy to help you and to take a personal email if you have questions. I invite you to also read some of these reviews: Reviews of 4 Pillars It is awkward to pitch my own product, but I will say, what these guys are saying about the program being the most comprehensive and full of the most information, is a true statement. That isn't an opinion, that is just an objective fact. As for whether all that content and effort is right for you, perhaps one of these testimonials will inspire you. Ken and Brett are real voice coaches, but I do not recommend Superior Singing. It is a known sham in the industry. The guy in the videos is a paid actor. It isn't actually a real voice training course and he isn't a real voice coach. It is all a put-on. One last thing, my course also offers a 616 page, full color book which goes with the 180 video online course. Ken and Brett haven't written any books. Kind regards... Godspeed on your vocal journey.

    I think The Four Pillars of Singing deserves a spot in your list of consideration. I don't know about the other ones, besides Singing Success, so I can't speak on those. As far as Singing Success goes, I assume Singing Success 360 is some kind of revamped product from the original Singing Success. Let me tell you, Singing Success had me feeling like I had come up short. Lots of flashy stuff, but when it came down to, "Oh! How do I do that?", there was no substance. There may have been a change of heart and Singing Success 360 is an honest program, but I just can't make the gamble again. I can say that The Four Pillars is an expansive program with a wealth of knowledge. You'll be working on that stuff, while improving for quite a while. There's a lot of work to do, and that's a good thing for you. The guy who created it is a rock singer, so you will absolutely be able to develop your rock and metal chops.

    (Help) 4 Questions (Need Help From You Guys!)

    Can't imagine that number one would be an issue. Not sure about the other stuff. I think 4's fixed just by doing exercises throughout your range. At least that's what caused mine to be fixed.

    Help: Mucus causing annoying issues

    If you don't push, does it open up to falsetto airiness? If so, that's a compression issue. If that's the case and you didn't deal with it before, then you likely need to work on a therapeutic semi-occluded phonation like resonant tracking (nasal buzzing consonants, or "humming while buzzing the lips") or cocktail straw sirens with extremely light whimpers with minimal air on the higher pitches. If you feel healthy, try a Quack & Release (Q&R) onset on ascending pitches, which is essentially a very slow "Neeyeh" that helps you build compression. To make Q&R more about coordination and control rather than resistance and strength, try to do it lightly while using the tongue being up and forward to make the /ee/ sound rather than in the throat like in speech. If you can't do this without push, then I suggest developing better cry vocal mode or adding the cry reflex and top-down whimper into everything you do. Cry is not a pull, but rather a slight lift feeling between your ears -- the same you feel when you cry, whether sad, happy, excited, or angry. This is a bit tricky to learn over text. It's also tricky to diagnose what's going on without walking you through various checklists and different onsets to isolate the issue. Are you training with a teacher who knows Estill vocal modes or TVS methodology/courses?

    Help: Mucus causing annoying issues

    Thank you so much, I’m definitely going to try this stuff! I also just incorporated a saline nasal spray in addition to the Flonase (ENT recommended it) so hopefully that helps. Maybe I wasn’t using the proper words haha I do a bad job trying to explain this stuff. I guess I mean that it feels like something is pulling when I try to sing in my middle/upper register...like its harder to channel my mixed voice the way I’ve been able to. When I try to bring my voice up and not use only strictly chest, it’s like theres something blocking it and I’m forced to use more chest in the mix, which pulls and wears me out. That may have not made any sense hah but I’m sure you can imagine what I’m trying to say. But I’m totally going to try those tips!
  24. If you're doing it wrong. I tried for years to match these guys who were up in tenor range, because a lot of guys I listened to were tenors. I couldn't do it without flipping into falsetto and ending up with a completely different tone. I finally start working with somebody who knows and not only do I find I'm getting up in that range, I find out that I'm a tenor! After believing for 8 years that I'm a baritone. I got several opinions on that. Some thought I was a baritone, some weren't sure. It just goes to show that it doesn't matter how many times you do something or how hard you try if you're doing it wrong. Failure does not mean you can't do something. An important lesson.
  25. Hi! I'm a 19 year old singer. It's what I love to do the most, aside from writing. I'm looking for some constructive criticism on how to grow as a singer. Thank you for your time x

    The founder of this forum has a Vocal course. It surprises me that people will ask on this forum which course is best and list many courses and their founders without mentioning Robert Lunte and his "Four Pillars of Singing". Regardless of whatever reason you have to not included "The Four Pillars of Singing " or "TVS" It is still the most comprehensive course and gives you the best bang for the buck.
