  1. Here is a video of me singing. I just want to know if I can sing, and how good I am, but I would appreciate any feedback and suggestions. Thanks . https://drive.google.com/file/d/1R4YknheOCe1BxuveOt8uR4XmH2AgRTvT/view
  2. So I’m a 17 year old girl and I think my voice is pretty strange. My range currently is D3-E6 but I feel way more comfortable singing low. It seems that when I do sing in a lower register, I have so much more power as I can belt. As I reach the breaking point between chest/head voice it is pretty weak and quiet and then it gets stronger again at the top! My question is: Is it appropriate for me to sing male solo songs if I audition for drama school? For instance: ‘My Friends’ -Sweeney Todd/ ‘Shoes Upon The Table’ -Blood Brothers (and also a bit obscure but) ‘Captain Crewe’ - A Little Princess. I feel way more confident with songs like these as I’m worried to be seen as having a weak voice! If anyone has any suggestions for good songs for an alto(?) voice, please feel free to share as I’m in desperate need, thank you!
  3. Was he not able to hit high notes above G4 or was it just a lack of training? Could he have been able to get higher due to the right trainning? I'm really interested.
  4. I know you all don't want to hear this negativity. I'm sorry. I've been singing for over 3 years now. Yet i'm so unsatisfied with everything. I feel i could be better and better and that there is some magic secret that i haven't discoverd yet. I always feel that i'm overrating myself. I can sing decent low notes and my falsetto is getting better although it needs improvment. Overall i'm happy with my voice. My main problem are the high notes. I've always neglected them in the past because i was a beginner and sang low. Now i try but it gets really hard. I always feel like i could have sung it better and better. Also when i found out that i was a baritone it was a bitter pill to swallow. Now i'm not sure. I'm 20. Should i stop singing or can i still improve my singing?
  5. Hi guys! I've always had this 'issue' with my voice, but even through training for a few years it hasn't improved. I've always been comfortable singing in head voice even before any sort of training, and have a pretty connected range up to G5. Often when I sing in my chest voice (more towards e4/f4, up to C5) I find myself switching to a more heady lighter voice. Obviously I know this is normal to an extent, but I can already be in a 'meatier' chest in this range, but I can feel my voice really trying to lighten up... The thing is when I'm singing in chest it isn't uncomfortable at all, with my larynx neutral or slightly lowered the whole time. Also, I need to make it clear my voice does not seem to break or flip into head voice at this point. It's kinda hard to explain. I just feel much more comfortable in my head voice or a heady mix than 'pure' chest voice. Is this just an indication I have a naturally lighter voice, or is there anything I can do to try and improve this part of my range in terms of power?
  6. Hello, I need some help with my voice type My range is E2 - F4 and my comfortable note is F2, but I cant sing E2 very loud. In the morning I can hit loud D#2 and a bit quiet C#2. My voice is straining on high notes like C4, F4 but I can still sing them loud (the straining is probably because of bad singing technique and not training enough) I used vocal monitor which tells me that I speak in A2 (if that helps). I stated learning the subharmonic singing technique one week ago and now I can hit G#1 with it but I cannot sustain because Im working on controlling it now. I wonder what is my voice type. I am 18 years old btw. Thanks in advance
  7. I’ve just started properly singing and I’m interested that what vocal type do I have. So my chest voice extends down to a F2, but I can’t project it that well and it’s really breathy. At around A2 it starts getting stronger and brighter. My chest voice goes up to a F4 and my mix goes to a E5. My head voice can go to a C6 easily and to D6 but it takes more effort. So any opinions about what vocal type I am? edit: Yes I’m completely aware that this really doesn’t matter and that it’s hard to know without recordings. I’m not that daft but thank you anyways for pointing that out...
  8. Hi so i been singing for a while now and i would like an oppinion on how im singing, i think i sound bad when singing "normal" it sounds like too much air. But when i sing higher it sound nicer.

Thanks:-) Rec 1 - http://picosong.com/wy66D/ Rec 2 - http://picosong.com/wy6bn/
  9. Nothing's funny. But it's literally affecting my practice. Is this a singing problem, or maybe it's not. I find that it's mainly when I hold long notes that I just want to laugh. IDK WHY. It's been happening for a while now, and it's been somewhat affecting my practice. Does anyone else do this?
  10. 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. I also want the flexibility to sing high yet soft like Ronnie James Dio has been able to do.
  11. 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: https://www.smule.com/p/1509298119_1920505134

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: https://www.smule.com/p/1509298119_1920505134
  13. Hello there just wanted some feedback on how I did and what would my voice type be?

  15. I am 15 years old i've been singing for 2 years now I have had 2 months with a vocal teacher My vocal range is A2 - F5 (Modal Register) Extended By Falsetto and Vocal Fry A1 - Bb5 My passagios are at D4 and G4 someone help?
  16. 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
  17. 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! https://vocaroo.com/i/s0ecsVplMXIH Just goes to show that practice and patience works!
  18. 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!!
  19. 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!)
  20. 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
  21. 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?)

  22. Hi it's me again. Please go to this link to hear me sing https://singing-with-a-deviated-septum.tumblr.com/post/166724849854 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 ❤
  23. 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...https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxRxUD4JI2VeTS1rQ1ltalk1OW5FSXRmSmVMZU9YNlgyazJR/view?usp=sharing
  24. 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
