    Mulan - Reflection

    Hiiii. I just recorded a raw cover of Reflection from Disney. I’d like to get some critique and feedback on how I can improve my voice quality. I feel as though I’ve been belting unhealthily and it’s straining me. I can belt but it is not a very comfortable thing for me. I feel as though I need to work on relaxing my throat. I just know something is wrong with the way I sing this cover. Could you please help me distinguish and give me tips on how I can improve it? During a choir voice warm-up, one of our conductors tested my voice on piano and said I am Soprano 1. He placed me in the Alto group tho. Here is the link:

During a choir voice warm-up, one of our conductors tested my voice on piano and said I am Soprano 1. He placed me in the Alto group tho. I never had professional training btw and only received informal lessons from an Aunt and uncle who are professional singers. I used to sound nasal and only improved over time through practice. I just feel there is sth wrong with my belting. Here is the link:
  3. Hello there just wanted some feedback on how I did and what would my voice type be?
  4. Hey everyone, I was wanting to ask for the best tips to expand my chest voice range healthily. I want to be able to sing like Bruce Dickinson with a lot of power, control and vibrato in a high chest register and I would really appreciate the help.

    Am i baritone or tenor

    I decided to start singing 4 montjs ago. Im thinking im a baritone. My voice is breathy in this song because 1) i dont want to sing too loudly 2) the song is actually a little above my tessitura, i feel. At this point, should i incorporate "headvoice" to sharpen the sound without significantly raising volume? I bring up volume becus i want to be able to sing in a controlled manner without worrying about being too loud Thx
  7. Hi! I'm new-ish to this forum, posting here for the very first time because I'm super excited to share my progress. I'm male, 23, started taking singing lessons only 2 months ago. Prior to that I was a rubbish singer. I'd read a lot about vocal technique in the past i.e. chest, head voice etc. but it was all rather abstract - especially when it came to the mysterious mixed voice (what the what?). Anyway, I couldn't sing for my life until recently when I bit the bullet and started seeing a voice teacher near where I live. Only 2 months later and I CANNOT believe the progress I have made! This recording was taken today - I usually record myself doing vocal exercises at home - and has me doing a vocal slider up to C5 while adding some cord closure and lots of support. Although I could only hold the note in full voice for a couple of seconds, I managed to get a tinge of vibrato in there and the release felt AMAZING! 2 months ago I was straining to even hit C5 in falsetto! Just goes to show that practice and patience works!
  8. The pitch of this song is like a rollercoaster (for me, at least), and this has caused me serious problems all the times I've tried to sing it. I finally managed to get an overall grasp of it, but I don't know if it's acceptable or not. I would like to hear what I am doing right and what I am doing wrong. (Also, PLEASE someone tell me the note at 1:10 minutes!) Cheers!!
  9. Hey guys. The thing is, as I have said in other threads here, I barely sing high at all. I'm very inspired by Leonard Cohen and my voice is pretty limited in the high register, so I transpose most songs to the bass region (even Avril Lavigne songs!) This Brazilian song (Portuguese is my mother tongue) represents my singing style very well. I'd like to hear opinions about my technique and what I could do to improve it! (EDIT.: I'd also like to know what is the last note of the song, please!)
  10. Hi all ! I recorded a cover of the song Perfect (Ed sheeran) and I would like your opinion and feedbacks : Thank you in advance Best
  11. Singing with rhinitis

    Singing with Rhinitis part 3

    Hi again, I tried support in these recordings but either I don't know how to do it properly because my throat still hurts. Like a grater was used on it. I'm currently using lozenges to soothe. Of late my voice has been raspy, I don't know why because my voice isn't usually like this. The ENT I went to said he sees nothing wrong with my vocal chords on the stoboscopy, he doesn't understand why I'm raspy now or sore throat. He says I'm probably going to have to do more tests. I'm still of the opinion that diaphragm breathing/ support only assists with sore neck & not throat. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for your help (Why is there no gospel tag? Is it cause it's not really a genre, cause you can get gospel rock, gospel rap etc. It's similar to animation where it's not a genre cause it could be a drama or comedy etc? if so where do hymns sit?)

  12. Singing with rhinitis

    Singing with Rhinitis Part 2

    Hi it's me again. Please go to this link to hear me sing The pain is not in the following song. But after singing it six times the pain registers again. I have registered two pains. 1 sore throat 2 sore neck I personally believe that diaphragm breathing alleviates the second pain but not the first. Cause that feels like a flu. And that's my main problem with my allergies. I can push through neck pain but not throat pain. My doctor said drink tea & take lozenges, exercise 30 minutes a day, warm up before singing, get rid of the dust causing my allergies. wash my sheets in 70 degree water. I have done all of the above. But the sore throat is still here. Even if I talk excessively at work it hurts, right now I'm healing my throat with lozenges, because of a 7 minute call I had with a friend. This has never happened before. I'm sending an email later today to my doctor. But I really wanted to post this version in the interim, to get feedback am I still shouting as opposed to singing? I tried incorporating the belt into the singing, but I felt I was only able to do that when the note wasn't complex e.g "whaaaaaat" at the end vs ("half of it, this the life I live" section). Thank you for helping ❤
  13. I'm a 14 year-old, mild experience, and recorded this for a school play. I would love some honest reviews as I feel uncomfortable watching it myself...
  14. Hey everyone its been ages since I last posted here, but since then i picked up ken tamplins course (which in its own way has helped with a lot of things) But I do have a couple questions that I think are related but I may be completely wrong. First question i have is what sort of sensation should i feel while singing with my diaphragm? I think ive been doing it right however I dont know quite how it should feel. Ive been doing the inhale and belly expands and then as i sing/ exhale my belly goes back to normal. but I dont know if thats all there is too it or if im supposed to be using certain muscles in my core. if so which ones? The other question ties in a bit as through said course i took they mentioned "leaning" into the sound to get a distorted tone. I had no clue what that meant so I went to good ol youtube to look up metal screaming tips (figured that would be for the extreme cases) so they talk about pushing with my abs (sort of) really hard and it will distort my voice through my chest not my throat. all that, that has done for me is make me louder and at points hurt my throat. So any input or suggestions for this would be greatly appreciated as I dont really care for messing my voice up lol. Thanks
  15. Hey guys. Any suggestions on how to clean up my chest and head? It feels and sounds like extra thick vibrations toned in with my notes. Almost like i have half my chords workibg and the rest kinda just adding flapping flavour. I can hit clean chest/head notes but usually just when hitting notes/chords. Not when singing songs. My falsetto is clean though and has none of this extra beef. Thanks. Rich.

    Everlong - Foo fighters

    Never had any lessons or anything and I'm not sure what kind of voice type I have but I can't sing very high. What do you think about the high notes in this half step tuned down version of Everlong, does my voice sound any good for a song like this?

    Male breathy chest voice extension?

    hi guys, i am wondering if its possible to increase chest voice range. i'm not refferring to mix (i dont think). take a listen to the vocal sample below, the singer comes in on d3 and it sounds like hes in his chest voice with a breathy tone, but when i try go purely chest at d3 i strain because its too high... any advice is appreciated! thanks
  18. Hi Folks, This is one of my favorite songs. I posted a version earlier, this is after I did some work on my musculature. Now I am able to retain more of the muscular sound even on my high notes. The verse as many will attest is one of James La Brie's finest performances. It has taken me several years to reach this level. For now happy with the outcome. Thanks to anyone who drops in a sentence or two..
  20. My speaking voice is alright but when I sing i sound like a girl.....I want to learn singing through physical classes but iam embarrassed of my voice and this is stopping me from joining classes.... Here's my smule id ...
  21. I suck at titles so forgive the above. But in essences yes I have rhinitis & a deviated septum. But I'm not sure if those are the sole reason for my problems singing wise. My main issue is a sore throat when singing in chest voice. I think it's because I do not know how to activate the diaphragm beyond belting. I have many other problems (1. consistency (sometimes I sound good others bad & I'm singing the same song), 2. diaphragm breathing, 3. I hate my tone, 4. nasal drip creates cracked voice, 5. nasally blocked nose sound when singing, 6. squeaky voicing when transitioning to higher notes, 7. weak voice with no resonance) but let's keep it minimal for my first post & stick to getting rid of the sore throat that I get when singing in chest voice. I would like it to no longer be painful & as painless as when I sing in head voice if possible. I don't have soundcloud etc so I hope it's cool that my link is to my tumblr page with the same name (though I change my name a lot) you are free to listen to my other vocal posts & comment on that too. Have a lovely day. PS: And please be as honest as can be, because the sooner I clear my head of delusions the better it is overall.
  22. So here is my cover of Steelheart's I'll Never Let You Go. Let me know what you think of it. I do accept all sorts of criticism regardless of whether it's positive and negative. Any suggestions or tips on how to improve I would greatly appreciate it!
  23. For the past few months i have started seriously practicing to improve my singing voice. this is a difficult thing to do since my singing voice is probably one of the worst you have ever heard. I tried so many different techniques on my voice but all my attempts resulted in tragedy.....until today I understand That I still have a very long way to go before my voice becomes somewhat decent, but I think I made break through today, I think I may be on the right path but I would love to get some honest feedback for my singing. I feel that if I continue to practice and train my voice the wrong way, that i might actually develop bad singing habits, honestly I think I already have done this and it is horrible. I would love to hear if you guys think I should keep practicing or just give up. So the craziest thing happened today, I was just chilling doing nothing when a random yawn hit me, believe or not but this yawn is what helped me improve my voice 10 fold. as i let out the yawn I heard and felt my voice make a beautiful sound, I then applied the same technique of yawning into my way of singing, its hard to explain but its like I simply opened up the back of my throat and sing from the inside of my chest/stomach area. I know my voice is not good, but I do think I made some decent progress, keep in mind that i literally just learned this new way of singing a few hours ago so i intend to practice using this technique unless you guys think I should continue searching for a better way of singing. I uploaded 2 recordings, one is labeled "before" and the other is labeled "after" the "before" recording is from last night and the "after" is from this morning.
  24. Hello! I've been kind of in the dark as to whether or not my singing is ok or not, because the feedback I get from people I sing with might be them being to nice, and it's difficult to get an honest opinion from family members and friends on your singing. I've been singing on smule (the only way I get singing practice) for about a year now, and I can hear some improvements from when I first started; however, some days im able to hit high and low notes while other days I can't. High notes are still difficult for me to sing full without sounding like I'm straining (because let's face it, I am), and low notes will tend to go off key. I'm able to add some vibration to some keys so it doesn't sound flat, but it's difficult to do on command (usually it just sort of happens, you'll hear what I mean when you check some of my songs). I'm new to this site so I want honest opinions, what do I need to work on, and what are things I should be practicing daily, and for how long? Thank you!
