    Thoughts on my singing?

    Hi, I am 17 years old, have been singing four about a year an a half. Just wanted to know your opinion, what could I improve. I would like to say in the beginning that I do have some problem with pitch sometimes (usually about a half note higher or lower). Any good exercises? https://soundcloud.com/user-711959095/shallow-just-an-experiment1

    Will I be able to sing "See You Again"?

    Thank you so much for your answer. I need to ask you, is there a good video on what is the difference between falsetto and head voice? Cause I thought I understood it, but as I can see now I was wrong all along. I watched this video and though I got it, but if you are right, then you've confused me. And teacher told me as well that the "And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again" part is a falsetto. About the vocal teacher, she never told me anything about these stuff. I don't even know how are these things called in my native language (Czech). We usually just warm up and they I sing a couple of songs. Sometimes she tells me it was good and then we go on, sometimes we correct some notes, runs that were not in pitch, a lot of times she tells me to sing lower songs, because my voice sounds good there, but I always disagree there. And yes, she does say that I should sing inside my comfort zone and when it will sound good, I should move higher and I do partly agree with her, cause I do think it is important to sound good even at around G3, but I should train the high notes as well. All I have learned, I learned from watching youtube videos and picking, what seems to work for me. I don't really want to stick with one course as there are so many and sometimes, the teachers can be wrong. For example I saw Ken Tamplin (he is always in the recommended videos, don't really like him, but he did show me the lip roll warm up) and I saw the lizard tongue thing, which was just weird. It really flatters me to hear my colour sounds like Paul McCartney but I have a long way to go But truly thank you, as almost everybody I didn't really like my voice on the recording. I did hear about Robert Lunte and I am thinking about watching some videos or even buying some stuff. I did spare some money and I really want to train my voice to sing pop/rock with ease and beatiful tone. But I think that Robert sings a lot different than I would want to sing. He uses a lot of screams and distorted sounds and I am not really into that. I do like it sometimes (John Lennon, Oasis), but just subtle use of it.
  3. Hey everyone, I am 17 and I have been singing for about 1 year (never sang before, not even in the shower, but I have played guitar for a really long time). Yesterday right before my vocal lesson with a local teacher, I though I could sing See You Again from Charlie Puth. I spend about 2 hours singing the song before I went to the lesson and pitched the idea to my teacher. I sang her the song and she said that it's a lot beyond my range and comfortable zone and that I shouldn't sing so high. She said that I can try singing it, but it will never sound good. That kind of hurt, because I like rock and pop songs and both are mostly high pitched songs. So I recorded myself at home and I am starting to disagree, which I shouldn't since she is the teacher and I am just a student. She had a problem with the high falsetto part, which I think is not that bad considering I have never used falsetto (I love the chest belting). She was okay with the "It's been a long time" and "We've come a long way" parts though, which to me sound terrible. So to sum it up, I want to ask all of you what you think. Do you think I have the voice, potential to sing these high notes? Or should I stick to someone like John Mayer, John Lennon, Michael Buble and bring the song down when I want to sing pop/rock songs (for example Charlie Puth or Freddie Mercury)? https://soundcloud.com/user-711959095/see-you-again-experiment-2
