  1. hey, thanks. "It may seem a pretty simple idea but they are more complicated than you may imagine..." I disagree completely. I read music and know music theory. it doesn't have to be complicated and is quite teachable through an online course.
  2. Hi, wow, a response from Robert Lunte himself. Thanks I would say this introductory/basic (but comprehensive course) that I'm looking for will teach you, say about scales and intervals, the basic practice routines - how to sing with scales and what scales, etc. A little bit of breathing technique, warm up, etc would naturally accompany that lesson. But it would not be about breathing technique or whole workshop about how baritones can sign high and so on. If I can use guitar learning as analogy, and I feel this will make the point across - there are whole courses that teach you how to hybrid pick, how to play string skipping arpeggios, or course on blues shuffle and 12 bar blues. These would be the segmented technique lessons. But a basic training course would be one that teaches you the basics of reading, the basic chords, scales (major, pentatonic, and so on), intro to finger picking, basic jazz rhythm, advanced chords, two chords, soloing from scales...I think you get the idea. The course will not necessarily concern itself whether you can play the scales fast enough to be a pro or a live player. Naturally, the basic elements are there, which you can utilize to reach there. I hope this makes sense. Thanks very much for responding. Again, like I said above, your course seemed great to me (I looked at this one - BECOME A GREAT SINGER: Your Complete Vocal Training System). It's comprehensive, very well organized and detailed. I guess, I am looking for more emphasis on music (theory etc) and not so much on technique, which is surely very important but for my purposes it's not the focus.
  3. "Music theory in parallel" sounds right and "just necessary to use with singing" seems the perfect amount. "Knowing how to use your voice to produce........" - this is I would think is most courses focus on, and obviously there's nothing wrong and everything right about that. I would say this introductory/basic (but comprehensive course) should teach you, say about scales and intervals, the basic practice routines - how to sing with scales and what scales, etc. A little bit of breathing technique, warm up, etc would naturally accompany that lesson. But it would not be about breathing technique or whole workshop about how baritones can sign high and so on.

  4. omg!! ha ha. wth happened here? i left after my last response and now it looks like a full blown epistemology war here. btw, i conclude no one knows if the course im looking for exists. Robert Lunte's course seems sth i'm not looking for, nothing almost on music, just techniques. i'm surre its a good course, looks well organized. but again, not what i was after.
  5. A course for someone who never had any lessons on how to sing or who wants to formally learn singing. In other words, when a child/young person go to a music/singing teacher to learn singing, the training they get is what I'm looking for in online format. I don't know how else to clarify this.
  6. Thank you MDEW. This is exactly what I meant, except I am looking for something that covers music and not technique.
  7. Specific about what? I'm not dictating what the course should or should not have. It simply has to be an online course that teaches singing starting from the basics. What it contains or should contain is not something I'm telling or asking. If you know about such a course then that's what I want to know.
  8. Whatever a competent teacher would include in a fundamental course. I don't require it to have certain fundamentals. I need something that claims to work as an elementary-to-advanced education/training course, and which assumes no prior knowledge.
  9. Hi, I was wondering what singing course you would recommend for someone wanting to get a basic but comprehensive course on singing. This is not meant to answer 'how to sing high' or other 'secret' techniques etc. These things could be in the course. The point is it is a singing course, working as a comprehensive course and teaching the basics of music and singing, not necessarily 'techniques'. Doesn't have to be genre specific, in fact, shouldn't be genre specific. It would be like a guitar course that doesn't teach you how to play fingerstyle, or rock or jazz rather teaches you all the basic things you need to know about playing guitars including music theory. While elementary jazz, blues, rock, classical, etc would be essentially part of the course I would assume, the focus is not to teach 'styles' particularly. I hope this was clear. Also, would be great if you shared what kind of basic training you took and how (self taught, tutor). Thanks
  10. Wow! Thanks so much everyone. I love this forum! Thanks Steven, ronws, killerku, Jens, Felipe. You are great.
  11. Hi, Looking to get suggestion about great vocal melody writers. It's difficult to specify what I mean by great vocal melody. But singing lines with great rhythm, catchy yet not predictable, instantly likable because of gripping dynamic, are mainly the qualities I think. So, I like stuff done by Ella Fitzgerald from the Cole Porter songbook and other songs too. L Armstrong of course. Elvis. I also like Iron Maiden, if you listen to this kind music. Bruce Dickinson's vocal lines are very engaging and dynamic. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions. I don't care about genre and language. Don't kindly assume I have listen to/am aware of all notable singers. So, if it's a basic/obvious suggestion that's great too. Thanks in advance.
  12. And wow!!!! You sound amazing on those soundcloud clips!!
  13. Thanks. I don't understand the jargon but got the gist of what you said.
  14. wow! Simple. ha ha. Thanks very much. You didn't say how common or rare it is among singers.
  15. Hi, I don't have any theoretical knowledge. I have sort of a basic understanding of the core concepts of music but I wouldn't know what to do if you told me to sing in E flat or something like that. Anyway, there are some videos on youtube that have sound samples to test which vocal type you are. They play a number of notes (E2 G4 etc.) and then give you a table to determine your type based on which was the lowest and highest you could sing and match pitch. So, my question is If someone can sing all the the notes played (A, D2, B2 whatever they are and anything in between then) what does that mean? I'm not saying I can do it or even want to do it. I also understand, I think accurately, that this skill does not automatically and necessarily mean that someone is a great singer. I just don't know if this is something that all/most professional and expert singers have or it's a rare skill/quality among even expert singers. And what does it mean if someone has this skill. Does it mean she/he has unbelievable vocal prowess or it's just an impressive/useful skill not all that earth shattering. Thanks.
