  1. Hi there folks! I just joined today, my name is Liza Jean (stage name, granted), and I sing for a KC-based rock band. I'm an alto/mezzo and my chest range is roughly F3 to D5, and my head voice is about Eb5 to G5. That being said, I can belt an Eb5 in chest, but it comes and goes, as that area is where my vocal break sits. So I guess I'm here with a few questions! I take singing lessons currently, but I'm pretty certain my teacher doesn't have formal training in the sense of knowing the pieces of the vocal chords. She has her own solo project and usually teaches children, and while we've made some great progress with where my voice was last year, I'm still hitting some roadblocks that I'm not sure how to explain, and that neither of us are sure how to overcome. So I thought I would turn to y'all! So without further ado, I'll try to word these in a way that makes sense: 1. When I initially started working on strengthening my head voice, I did by using a lot of nasal-y 'nya' vocalizing. However, I've found fairly recently that this seems to create a lot of tension in the back of my mouth/back of my tongue. When I sing in head voice, it's hard to not fall into it, and if you put your thumbs under your jaw and right at the back where it curves up, that soft space always feels 'weird' when I sing head voice. The best way I can describe it is like someone's stuffed cotton into the space or similar. I'm pretty sure it's tongue tension but I'm not positive. Thoughts? 2. My chest voice is very deep-sounding in tambre, and pretty warm. Even when I belt, there's still a decent richness to the tone, but once I get into head voice, I lose it. My upper register sounds like a completely different voice: it's a little thin in tambre (but not breathy), very bright, and just generally not what I want. I'd love to bring some of the richness of my chest voice into my head voice, but I'm not sure how to. 3. The dreaded vocal break. I definitely have it, and it's very noticeable. What are some good exercises to smooth this out? It tends to sound a bit like a yodel, but there's still a patch of graveliness when I make the switch, even if I slow down the exercise I'm doing. Being able to switch seamlessly between my two registers would be absolutely ideal! 4. In general, I tend to break fairly easily in my head voice. I know this is probably a matter of strengthening my breath support, but in particular words that start with a vowel or glottal stop have a high tendency to break and/or crack, and so far my only real method is to just very slowly go through the vowels while in my head voice, but I'd love if there was a better set of exercises I could do. Songs I tend to sing for practice on these things include Stone Cold (Demi Lovato), Praying (Kesha), and more recently Who You Are (Jessie J). They all have a lot of runs and switching between the registers, and I'd love to be able to sing them and have my voice sound like one seamless, well-mixed register. Any advice is appreciated! (And if I can, I'll try and get a vocal recording up one of these days if it's easier to hear what I'm talking about.) -LJ
  2. I’m a male and I’m 17 (it is relevant but not really) and I was singing in the fifth octave, I can hit about an F#5 but after that I have to really try to hit the notes. At one point I thought I wonder how high I can go so I just started ascending until my notes were basically inaudible at G5. Until out of nowhere I hit a C6. Then later I managed to go up to G6. What the heck happened. Should I try to go lower/higher? Or this just a freak anomaly?
  3.

  5. Hey. I'm thinking about injecting testoreone to cure my depression. The only thing that keeps me from injecting is the fear that my voice might have a negative impact from it. I'm already a baritone (sadly), which means i can reach low notes pretty easily without any effort but hitting any note above D4 in chest voice takes a lot of effort. It's like climbing a very high mountain. My voice almost means more to me than my life however my lack of testoreone is ruining my life. So what should i do? Should i sacrifice my life or should i sacrifice my voice?
  6. Hey forum , I’m new here and having been practicing singing for a while now. I believe I find my mix.and I have a few questions about it. 1: how do I make it more chesty 2: why on some days it’s a bit harder to get my mix going. 3: should I keep on with the “nay nay nay” vocal exercise after I found it? Please judge my little vocal clip there and let me know what you think and how I can improve thanks!
  7. Basically I no longer can sing in head voice or falsetto. A few years ago I was able to sing in head voice I believe (still don't really know the difference, I just know I can't make high pitched sounds) but it was very difficult even then and the last time I was able to do it like that was about 3 years ago. The last time I was even able to make any kind of sound in that area was about last year but I only sang one phrase then my voice cracked. I can't even do a "woo" or scream. I've tried looking this up but they all say to just go higher and it will come naturally but when I get to my highest mixed note (D5-Eb5) I just simply can't go any higher.. I turning 16 soon so could it just be my voice is still developing, bad technique or is it damaged? ----- Had two things to ask but thought I would just keep it in the same post Also another thing is I am not new to music I just want to be able to sing decently to my favorite songs but my voice is very soft and weak and I hate it especially in mixed voice, I have a soft tenor sound which I can make a little bit more powerful by singing louder but my range is E2-D5 (comfortably F#2/G2 - D4) anything below F#2 I can only sing with a lowered larynx, anything above roughly G4 is raised larynx and mixing which sounds super whiny and starts to hurt after a while making singing with male singers extremely difficult. I know this isn't much to go off of and is kind of all over the place but any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  8. Hi all, I would really apreciate to get your opinion on my voice and my covers below with many kind of music (Pop/Acoustic/Piano-voice...) SoundCloud link to my covers : Let me thank you in advance for your feedback ! Best Taha
  9. She claims to have vocal nodules, hasn't done anything about it. How is she able to sing despite them? Is there anything special about her case or can anyone learn to sing despite nodules.
  10. I haven't been doing covers on Smule recently. Hallelujah https://www.smule.com/recording/lisa-lois-hallelujah/1011915964_2318170316 Stone Cold https://www.smule.com/recording/demi-lovato-stone-cold/593331709_2312724812
  11. What do you think about it? It's one of my favourite queensryche song....
  12. So i hate vocal warmups. In fact i hate it so much that a lot of times it prevents from even starting to sing for a few hours. Now when i watch one of these videos about vocal warmup, it seems that the lip roll is really dominating everything. My problem is that the Lip roll doesn't work for me. Can i do effective warm up while avoiding the lip roll?
  13. Hi fellow vocalists! What is this thread? Why? I am starting this thread as a place to compile different trusted online teaching resources on how to begin training your falsetto or head voice both for myself and for other people looking for a one-stop shop list of this topic. What is your skill level and experience on this topic? I have been studying and training my full voice all semester and want to finally begin adding this skill to my vocal toolbox. I have a very basic sense of head voice to full voice just because of my musical background but other than that I have little to no education or experience on the techniques, practices, standards, and healthy conventions of the use of falsetto singing. Thank you guys for your help in populating this thread.
  14. So i do experience symptoms vocal injury. I pray that it might not be permanent. Now i'm wondering how much do it take to repair my voice. Should i do special exercises or should i go on vocal rest?
  15. So, i usually thought that vocal nodules mean permanent vocal damage and you can't sing with it. Now i've seen an interview with Mariah Carey, where she talks about having nodules since she was a child and being able to sing despite it. So, does that mean i can sing despite nodules or will this damage my voice even more? Why hasn't Mariah Carey damaged her voice?
  16. I'm Noah, I'm from New Zealand, and I'm almost 15. I've been singing for about 4 years now, mostly in the 3rd octave (My voice dropped relatively early, around 12). However, I'd like to build up some confidence in my upper register (above say G4), where up until now I've resorted to yelling (small clip provided) This threshold used to be a lot lower, close to E4, but over time this has moved up. What I think I know about my voice. Based on my dad's range and tone (we both have the same range, about D2-C6) I think I am a tenor, albeit slightly lower set. My passaggio seems to be between Eb4-G4 I'd like to develop a mixed coordination of some sort so I don't have to yell when singing notes in the upper 4th octave, and also to be able to connect my falsetto to my full voice. I've been working on this for a few months now, and I've found that I am able to slide smoothly between my chest voice and falsetto on a closed "oo" or "ii" vowel. This is only going up though (I can't slide bACK from falsetto to chest w/o breaking). I have also found another voice that is connected to my chest that I can take pretty high (goes up to C#5 on a good day, which is my highest yelled note; i've managed to get it to around an f5 on some occasions), but it is veRY VERY light (also an example provided). My question is: What exercises do I need to be using, how do I use them effectively, and what is this mysterious upper voice? Thank you (excuse the whistle at the beginning, i was messing around lol) Ballad Of Mona Lisa.mp4 Head Voice?.mp4

  18. So, i'm singing for around 3 years now. Around half a year ago i started singing on a daily basis. I'm not trained and didn't do warm up's until recently. However i never really did any screaming, yet my voice still sounded hoarse and i couldn't sing falsetto like i used to yesterday. I had a cold around a week ago. Could that be the reason for this? I've been doing this for over an hour yesterday. Could it be dangerous?
  19. Everytime i'm singing in the low register, i feel like it's almost too easy for me. I always feel like i'm cheating every time i'm singing low. What i can do to make the low notes sound more complex?
  20. Hey, lately I started to sing covers but I have a big problem. I am not a prof. singer and I have no clue of notes. How do I know in whitch note I should sing like if I sing a Camila Cabello song for example "Crying in the Club" in whitch note should I start to sing where can I go, whitch note shouldn't i sing.
  21. All of these 3 singers talked about not doing any vocal warm ups before singing. I'm sure there are many more singers, especially the ones without any formal training, who usually don't warm up. Now i'm wondering if it's really necessary to do warm ups. I hate warm ups more than i hate death, however i also have a strong fear of vocal damage. Can someone please explain to me why Jennifer Hudson is able to sing the way she does without having any warm up? I mean i never did any warm up for years too, until i leaned about the importance of it a few years ago. Are these singers risking their voices? https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/news/jagger-takes-up-singing-lessons-to-preserve-voice-411249.html Also read that Robert Plant doesn't do any warm ups, but i can't find a source right now.
  22. Is phlegm build up normal when singing? When i throat gets phlegmy, i access my full voice easier and high notes dont feel strained anymore. Only downside is that it makes my voice a bit rattly and on high notes its hard to keep them "clean". High notes arent strained but the phlegm kind of muffles the sound, otherwise i like the rattly feel and sound because it gives it a kind of "rock" edge. Ive been smoking for 4 years and suffer from chronic post nasal drip if that helps.
  23. I experience the same symptoms that Adele talked about. (*auto edit*) i need vocal surgery probably. Bad thing that i ain't famous and rich as her.
  24. So in the last week i started singing at least 3 hours a day, i would like to do it more often but i'm too paranoid about vocal health. I really hate vocal warmup. I used to never to do it, now i started doing it occasionally after i became aware of the risks of not doing it I'm not able to do a lip roll for whatever reason. I always get frustrated from not being able to do it, so i often just skip it and go over to singing some easier songs and then go over to the harder one. However i always fear that i might push my voice too far, that i overtrain it, that i'm doing it wrong. I'm really fearful of losing my voice. I mean i hardly ever scream, yet i feel like i overuse it. My voice is everything that i have. Honestly singing is the only thing in life that makes happy. Losing it would be horrifying. I always feel that my voice hurts or sounds hoarse after some time. I'm afraid i might develop vocal nodules or have already devloped them. So how can i a.) use my voice as much and often as i can, get the full potential out of it and b.) avoid any vocal damage or vocal surgery. That would be horrifying. inb4 get voice lessons
