  1. "White Rabbit" Tribute! I am proud to share a performance and production of Jefferson Airplane's classic, "White Rabbit". SaraEllen has been training with TVS for about two years. Excellent job SaraEllen! LOVE the curbing vowel resonance, steady embouchure, and "snappy" glottal attacks on the vowels, apart from the interpretation that captures the nuances we coached and discussed. Sounds great, looks great, a kick ass production and worthy achievement! Coach.
  2. Hi, I've been a long time lurker of this forum but I have never actually made an account until now. I'm looking some help with my head voice training. My voice is fully connected throughout my range which spans from Eb2-E5, and I'm able to access my mix all the way up till the highest note of my range. Having said that, I'm not satisfied with my range and I'm wondering if there anyway I can expand my head voice past E5? From E5 onwards no matter how relaxed I try to sing, nothing ever comes out of my mouth and I think like I've hit the "roof" of my range. Can anyone tell me what to do?
  3. I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about my singing? What category is it? Or style? Am i tone deaf? What do you think i need to work on? I usually only sing at home. I've never sang in front of other people. I love to sing, and I do it everyday! I'd love to hear your advice or opinions please. Thank You !!!

  4. I haven't been here for a while, so hi. I've wanted to take lessons for a long time, but I haven't really gotten the chance. Instead, I've just been singing my own stuff or covers, and my voice has gotten a lot better (I've gotten quite a few compliments on it). I've developed kind of a belting/baritone voice, I think (kind of like Max Bemis from Say Anything, if you guys are familiar with him). I don't think it's been hurting my vocals, as I don't ever feel sore after doing it (and it's actually the most comfortable way I can hit my highest notes). But I'm still a little worried considering my falsetto range has gone from a comfortable B4 to an A4 that I have to force out (over the past 3 years). I only just turned 23, so I'm assuming it's natural, or maybe I really am damaging my voice. I really do plan to have a vocal coach soon, but is losing your falsetto around this age normal (especially if you weren't really using it much)? Then the normal range thing. My F#4 is much better than it used to be, but it's still hard to hit on some songs. Like I said, I haven't been taking lessons, and I haven't really been doing range exercises either, but I expected to be able to hit at least a G4 by now. Does this mean that F#4 is most likely my peak, or do range exercises make a world of a difference? My goal is to eventually hit an A4 in chest voice, but I'm kind of demotivated at the moment. If I do start taking lessons and doing the normal range exercises as much as possible, how fast will I likely be able to hit a G4? (If it's even possible, or if knowing is even possible) Thanks in advance
  5. Hey everyone, I am stuck with a tiny bit of a dilemma. I play in a cover band in which every member does their share of singing, but while there are some songs I want to sing, I have major problems doing so because I cant hit the notes without going falsetto. I sing a lot of rock and country and while country isn't too much of a problem, I'm starting to hit the proverbial wall with rock. The voice range that I am comfortable singing in is more of a baritone (think Trace Adkins, maybe a touch higher than that.) so when I try to hit notes in songs like This Love by Maroon 5 or even some punk rock songs (Stacy's Mom by Fountains of Wayne or Ohio by Bowling for Soup.) it sounds like my voice is thinning out and my projection just goes away all together unless I sing falsetto but then the tone doesn't fit the song. I know the best way to improve is practice and possibly professional help. But at this current point all I can afford is practice. What I am getting to here, is how can I get my range higher, and not have to sound like my voice is thin or struggling. Are there any exercises or techniques that could help me. Thank you in advance
  6. In light of some recent threads about being stumped on certain notes, I wondered if notes are "unlocked" one at a time, or if they develop in leaps and bounds. From my experience so far, it's been leaps in bounds after indeterminate periods of time, in which seemingly little development occurred; being able to sing up to G#4 with consistency in a relatively short amount of time after I was inconsistent with the beginning of my head voice (E4). What have been your experiences with your vocal progress?
  7. If I do vocal exercises in head voice, and not in chest voice, will that still improve my chest voice? Or are they like 2 different things? If I only practice head voice, only my head voice improves and not my chest voice?
  8. Hello! I am 21 year old guy, completely new to singing,(a decent guitar player) and i have tried to measure my vocal range for few days now. My problem, probably a good thing actually, my voice doesn't ever break when i slide a note up. My lowest note is C2 but as i go up i don't notice a point where something would change, it just goes higher and thinner. My voice ends around F6 where it becomes the worst, squeezed, barely sustained falsetto you would have ever heard. Is there any way to measure where head voice ends and where i enter falsetto.
  9. It started couple of days ago when I tried to sing notes that I sing fine. Those notes became an awful voice... I can't say how it sounded like even on my own language. It was like silent voice mixed with a bit scream. I don't know how my voice damaged or changed in one day. At that day when it happened I was having a little sore throat from the morning to evening after I coughed several times. I think that even if I have caught a cold it can't be the cause of my problem because I it never happened when I had caught a cold(not including times when I had my throat messed up). I'm 18 year old guy and I'm a smoker, I smoke over 1 year what I regret most of all. Also I sing in a band, So guys what do you think will my voice come back in the future? Or please tell me what caused this problem if you can... Thanks in advance.
  10. Hello everyone! I've been working on this cover for quite some time, I think I've got it to a place where I can share it. Still not 100% with it but would like to know what you guys think about it. If you have the time and the will, please take a listen. I take all criticism so you can be too specific or too generic Link below, thanks to everyone who takes a listen! https://app.box.com/s/e6m1pnmnrxx7a5nqph7olq0nzvo1zqce Edit: New link to a better mix.
  11. Think I tired this before and could not get any of it to work If I have a karaoke mp3 saved to my laptop is there any way I could record the track and my singing together and upload it to this forum Thanks
  12. Hi to you all and how are you all doing I saw this site from google and it looked quite a good site so I though I would sing up Anyway I am looking at taking self taught singing lessons like the English to French/Spanish lessons you buy on a tape/ CD and you play in the car I have seen for sale on feeBay lots of the download MP3 and the send in the post jobs. But I don't know what to go for, I mean I ask the question hear to all you pross; can an amature really learn to sing from a recorded lesson? Anyway hear are 2 examples of cheep to expensive I have found http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Learn-to-Sing-like-the-Stars-professional-singing-lessons-vocal-training-/322068680174?hash=item4afcca0dee:g:ZuEAAOSwxN5WaTvf http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Voice-Lessons-To-Go-v-1-4-The-Complete-Set-Audio-CD-/231589868999?hash=item35ebd4f5c7:g:OCYAAOSwKrhVeM53 What do these lesson hold, and can I learn to sing like a pro from them? Thanks Toolless

  14. Hello! Tried this challenging and legendary song again. I, especially found the C5 phrase "wheel" challenging, more than the equal C5 "seen". Why is that you think? Any suggestions to improve this song? Ok, so the youtube link doesn't work so here is a link to my facebook video instead. I hope this works. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10153584906741517&id=654441516
  15. Some quicky vocals from tonight's training session...working on A4 and B4 I just sang against the actual song so it was a little hard to hear the rhythm track etc etc Phrases from Rainbow "I surrender", Deep Purple "Mistreated", Badlands "Seasons", Soundgarden "Rusty Cage" Its mostly A4 stuff except the Badlands is B4. That Badlands phrase "I know its too late" is the phrase I found my headvoice on about 6-8 weeks ago enjoy, comment if u want to. Essentially I have about 4 decent days of training behind me now lol. Even that slight amount seems to be helping..so hopefully things well trend better for quite some time now Dry vocal https://clyp.it/xzn2jbpi Some light processing https://clyp.it/hiia2oqg
  16. ( *Laryngoscopy result of my vocal folds Hello fellas out there! This is my first post in this modernvocalistworld forum and as a singer,im really proud to find this kind of forum where i can ask or share something regarding vocas. My name is Rolando and im 17 y/o singer living in Indonesia.I've been singing for many times and i'm really enjoyed it.I was part of a band that have regular concert schedule. So lets get to the point, 6 or 7 months ago,i had a full schedule of concert in one day,so from the morning until the evening i did sing without quality vocal rest,then next morning after that concert,i wake up and i realized that my voice already became breathy and hoarse.I thought it will only occur for 5 days or 7 days but i've been experiencing this damage for 6 or 7 months and i already went to the best ENT doctor on my town and i did a checkup to my vocal cords and that is the result.(on the picture i attached with this post upside) I knew it was all of my fault not to warming up properly and just sing without taking care of my vocal folds,but i'm really stressed to see that my voice is not yet recovered for many months. I already gargled with salt water and did many things as my ENT doctor instructed but it still the same,it breaks my heart. So what is the problem with me? What should i do ? Or is it a permanent and major vocal damage that has no medicine? If singer tea can fix this i will try to buy one. Thanks ^^ Note: I still can speak loud and sing but my singing quality is degradated so much,now i cant hold a note for a long time and my vocal pliabilty has gone aswell,though my vibrato is still clean and good.
  17. just going to post these here to document where I am at the moment. This is still without any focused training. I am trying to get myself to lock down some focused training so hopefully I can come back and compare in a month and blow these feeble efforts away. C5 5-22-16 https://clyp.it/qo1hlxcg different vowel, about a month ago https://clyp.it/4opbmxzu Done very hastily with one foot out the door. The last vowel was supposed to be "aww" but I probably cant hit that at c5 yet...so it just went into whatever other vowel that is. It actually sounds like a weaker version of the "love" that I hit a month ago lol. Like I said, these 4 vowels were done very hastily as I was walking out the door. The "who" and "we" were one take. The other 2 took several takes and still werent THAT great. This is the edge of my capabilities. Im barely getting those notes and cant hit vibrato on them. The last vowel cracked a few tiimes etc. The "who" wasnt that hard. Again, since this was done hastily, I wasnt thinking of technique so I probably did this and that wrong since I havent trained enough for it to be automatic. So maybe I can be 5 percent better with a good warmup etc but this is pretty much where my c5 is right now.
  18. I had my lesson with my vocal coach yesterday. He noticed that I, firstly, was going to hard on the vocals. Meaning, I was in some instances pushing too hard or semi-screaming or yelling. Secondly, he noticed that I didn't have good connection between head and chest. So, he suggested that I start with very soft sirens in order to get a good foundation of connection, then eventually add power to it. He showed me some exercises that bring the chest up into head and head down into chest. He said that a mix between the two is what I'm aiming for, which makes sense. So, after observing me doing a few exercises, he said that I should start doing some strengthening of the connection between around A3-F4 to start, then gradually move up tone by tone. Does this seem like a good idea? I'm wondering what I should do when I reach the limits of what I can bring chest into (right now, the max I can do is A4, but it's harsh). At what point do I want to go into pure head voice? Mixed? And lastly, does what my vocal coach says make sense to you all? I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
  19. Hey, Does anyone know how i can go about singing as fast like in the links below; 1.51 to 2.41 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WARyaiuDoZo And here 2.13 to 2.16 and 2.23 to 2.26 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGQA-z7ilec 0.45 - 0.51, 1.00 - 1.03 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISYSXuTEhtQ&index=8&list=PL-nIWg3Ic-BkPKTtc8OYG86iDtoFXrZwi 1.13 to 1.16 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47J7efw1wPM&index=9&list=PL-nIWg3Ic-BkPKTtc8OYG86iDtoFXrZwi A perfect example; 2.20 to 2.26 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLhJacBFEv4&index=12&list=PL-nIWg3Ic-BkPKTtc8OYG86iDtoFXrZwi It seems like it they are using a conversational tone/ slightly sounds like they are rapping - singing (makes me, wonder whether it is actually singing or are they just talking). Also,If they are singing, are they doing it all in chest? And if anyone knows of any exercises i may need to do, in order to gain the ability to do this type of singing automatic, that would be great! Thanks
  20. So, nasality in full voice. Is it possible for the average singer to achieve? I've gotten to a point where I can belt one of the highest songs I Know, which has a ending chorus between the notes G#4 and E5, in full voice; and the rest of the song is the same but only like one semitone lower. So listening to myself, I was impressed with the achievement and the ability to crescendo the sounds for more emotion.......but I realized that I was still lacking a huge amount of nasality and upper energy. I found that when I sang it, I had a lower level and medium level of adduction, both which worked, but the high or nasal level doesn't work at all. It's like a level of head voice that might exist, but it just doesn't no matter how hard I pinch and force my diaphragm. In my last topic I was confused as how to approach texture development, and it worked itself out. But now it's like, how do I use a texture that's already developed. Do I use the middle approach and try to employ twang? What I'm asking is, is a nasally head voice a plausible approach for an average or well developed singer. If a voice matures enough does it lose that nasally full voice? I never had a nasally full voice at any point within 8 years, so it's like..... DO I twang lower, or DO I try to get higher? Since my diaphragm and phrasing won't cooperate at such a high level, maybe I answered my question. And a weird thing for me is that my voice is clearly towards a higher tenor now. In my last topic, I was just starting to move past a low tenor, and since then my texture has lightened 5 or 6 times, but I'm not anymore nasal than before; just a lot more light.
  21. Hello, again! Here you have my maximum ability. Head voice, chest voice and mix, all in the same song. Unfortunately i have too much of the pharyngeal voice in the verses (sorry, but i have sang too much Judas Priest). What do you think?
  22. Hi All, I'm a 24, male and new in singing. I would just like to ask if the below is an example of a Head, a mixed or a falsetto? This is me singing a line from "Off to the races" of Lana Del Rey. http://vocaroo.com/i/s1ARwhAGcmQy Thanks,
