  3. Right now I'm doing too much; up to 3 hours a day. I know this is excessive, so I'd like to know how much you guys do.
  4. Muffinhead suggested this poll in response to the Vocal Coach Poll I did earlier. I liked the idea, had the day off and through this together. The aim of this poll is to give a chance for more advanced singers to encourage beginning students of singing, and convey a vision for the dedication it takes to get the singing voice you desire. Hopefully no self proclaimed "singing sensations" who are actually beginners, will vote and hack the results. We got nobody hangin' out in TMVW like that though right?! no worries. The idea is, if you have dedicated yourself to training (with a coach & on your own) your singing voice for many long hours, and truly have had your talent confirmed by cheering crowds, and many genuine compliments, vote.
  5. Hey all you coaches! I'm very curious as a possible vocal coach in the making, just what your coaching experience looks like these days. These questions assume a student who is dedicated to the home training you prescribe. Thanks for sharing!
  6. "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.
  7. What do you guys think about this guy's technique in terms of his agility? Does the shape of his mouth help with the insane vocal agility he has?
  8. We talk about all these different registers, resonances, breath support, etc. One coach will tell you one thing the next coach will tell you another. But at the end of the day you get the same result, a better singing voice. Does it really matter if what your singing is called mixed voice, or head voice, or something else? No, the only thing that matters is that you have grown your singing voice. We get so uptight with the little things that we forget the big picture. All good coaches teach the same thing but just have different ways of going about it. anyways.... just a thought
  9. Hi! I am learning the piano but I am also very interested in how to sing. It would be nice to learn to sing as well but I've never really done anything about it. blI found a book called The real book of blues which included a melody to the song Back door man (sung by Willie Dixon and Howlin' Wolf).http://www.breitlinks.com/jazz/realBookOfBlues1.pdf When I tried to play that melody on the piano I got some questions: The first note in the melody is E but I don't really think that my piano's E matches with what Howlin Wolf is singing. Could any signing experts please explain what Howlin Wolf is doing with his voice on that E? It also seems that singers are not too concerned with playing a melody on a piano and the singing that melody. They just hear the guitar or piano doing some comping and then just sing what they think should sound good. Is this a good approach I should use when learning to sing the blues? If so then such a melody would include mictrotones and other things. i.e. it would sound exactly like a minor pentatonic you on the piano. What can you say about this? I am a beginner when it comes to singing the blues. As a piano player I am used to the concept of "blue notes". People use them a lot when singing the blues. Do you pratice singing them or do they just come naturally? I don't imagine the first blues singers or field hollers going to vocal coach and saying: teach me how to sing "blue notes". What are your advice to me? and what are your definitions of "blue note"?
  10. Hey, I have taken probably 10 or 20 voice lessons in the past, and having gotten bogged down with work and family commitments I wasn't able to throw myself into it like I wanted to. Now I find I have a bit more time on my hands and am trying to find the right teacher, and perhaps also buy a program for doing exercises. I tend to prefer singing songs in the style of Sam Cooke, The Everly Brothers, Elvis. So soul mixed with a lot of early r&r, r&b, early country, blues etc...the classics. I'd LIKE to find a teacher local who has a bit of a secular/gospel background but I don't think there are any around in my province. The two coaches i've had both had classical training which is great, but I always feel like by continue to study with them i'll sound like i'm singing with an operatic type of voice in the styles I enjoy. 1)Are there any online coaches, or programs that might fit what I'm looking for? 2)What is the most important thing to consider when hunting for a local voice coach? Thanks
  11. Something I'm experiencing when training is: the power (and genius) of onsets properly executed with work flows to "hold" that quality phonation steady, is something I can feel taking place! I can feel the musculature "locked/set" if you will, in to that ideal configuration, and the resultant sensation of that laser-like twang, and bullseye placement, unchanging as you siren, to or from the octave or 5th! LOVE IT! This has been especially encouraging to me due to my problems with singing with clearer, less raspy sound colors. Along with lots of resonant tracking, the sweeps and sirens are helping me achieve a more clean, solid, and clear tone option for my vocal color palette!
  12. I was pondering these metaphors and thought I'd see if I could expand it some. Let me know how you see it! Easel is the pedagogy/coach Canvas is the formants Paint is the phonation Colors are the acoustic qualities & vocal modes Brushes are the intrinsic muscular configurations & appoggio Frame is the musical context/setting (band, choir, acapella, singer w/ instrument, musical, etc.) Lyrics are the finished image Lighting (as in a gallery) is amplification & vocal effects
  13. trying to come up with a good way to put some structure into my training...specifically as far as divvying up the training time etc. Essentially I am looking at devoting about 70% of my effort into a division such as this: chest voice--belting "pulling chest" head voice -- extending the range, achieving fuller tone bridging -- seamless blending etc, late/early etc and then maybe 30% into other stuff: distortion mimicking singers etc Do you all have any such structure or is it more of a "whatever I feel like at the moment" thing?
  14. Hello, I'm a baritone. I'm only 15, so that could change, who knows, but I've been looking into extending my range downwards and have had good results. My normal range is from F2-C5, although once warmed up I can get a D2 that's very unstable, but not fry. I learned about "Subharmonics", and decided to try them out. After about a week I've developed the technique to take me down to a G1, ugly it may be. The reason I'm posting here is because during this week, I've developed a strange... "partial" on my voice. (I'm a brass player, so this is the only way I know to say how it feels.) This partial starts at C2, and ends at about D1-E1, and I don't think its fry. It's not as pretty as say a full chest voice, however, its very connected and not separated like fry tends to be. Its hard to control, but it's there. Is this some type of fry I've randomly developed? Is it maybe subharmonics that I've somehow figured out? Any input? Very curious.

  17. There was a major study done on Freddie Mercury's voice. http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.3109/14015439.2016.1156737 And the less techie version....LOL!! http://news.discovery.com/human/life/freddie-mercurys-incredible-singing-voice-explained-160419.htm
  18. I have never been able to get more than very subtle vibrato in my voice, and never consistently. My vocal teacher has said that vibrato is merely an "ornament;" is this true? I've read that singing with a straight tone isn't good for the voice, and that vibrato comes naturally with good technique. Should I make a conscious effort to try to develop my vibrato, or will it come with time?
  19. Hi, Kind of a basic question, I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for some exercises where I can develop a stronger chest voice. I'm male and I'm most comfortable in a tenor/countertenor range. I can hit high notes easily, but others have said my lower range lacks strength and sounds a bit hollow/breathy like a yawn, almost like a bit of falsetto mixed in. I'm trying my best at breath control and making sure the voice is "pushed down" and coming from chest. I guess the perfect chest voice is one that sounds like you're giving an important speech? That's what I'm trying to achieve. I don't really have the time for regular singing lessons as I just sing as a hobby. Sometimes it's difficult to evaluate your own singing because not only is the sound I hear in my ears when I sing very different from what others hear, but it's natural for people to simply think their own voice sounds bad or weird when recorded and played back. Thanks.
  20. REMEMBERING JEANNIE DEVA MY COLLEAGUE & FRIEND THANK YOU JEANNIE... I was very saddened by the news of Jeannie's passing. Jeannie was in fact, a friend of mine. We first met in her home 2006, when I was under contract with TC-Helicon as the Voice Council Director as the first manager of Voice Council.com. As such, I traveled to LA and met with Jeannie and brought her on board to Voice Council. It was I, that first introduced Jeannie Deva to VoiceCouncil.com. and that was when we forged our friendship.As years went by, Jeannie and I engaged in a lot of cooperative projects and some business deals that were always a pleasure. When I think of Jeannie Deva, one of the first things that comes to my mind is that she was very loyal as a colleague and as a friend. Jeannie was the kind of person that rose above petty politics. Jeannie had a sort of,... "above all that" vibe to her that made me feel very comfortable and at peace in her presence. It always instilled a lot of trust in our friendship. Apart from the personal reflections, Jeannie was a great voice coach. She knew what she was doing to be sure. The world was fortunate to be able to share in her gift for teaching, charisma and positive karma. Today, I still think of Jeannie from time to time and I do not believe that will change.Thank you Jeannie for your friendship and for maintaining a high level of integrity in our dealings. I will definitely miss you.Respectfully,Robert Lunte... below are two recordings I have kept in my private music collection of Jeannie singing... very beautiful. 01-- Jeannie Deva - Whiter Shade of Pale.mp3 01-- Jeannie Deva - Melodia Sentimental.mp3

  24. Mainly, vocal cord paralysis occurs after related (and unrelated) surgeries such as, for example: Thyroid removal surgery, spinal fusion and even simple surgical procedures that require surgical intubation (Tracheotomy). Often, those tubes are inserted incorrectly and, as a result, the vocal cord(s) could be damaged and/or paralyzed. The voice could be easily jeopardized if you have experienced stroke, or even unrelated surgeries, for example, due to even any accident, which requires surgical procedure. Of course if (God forbid) the sufferer had any growths like tumor, or even a simple nodule or polyp on a vocal cord, removal of any of the above could easily cause vocal damage and vocal cord(s) paralysis. The Vocal Science™ technique is the only alternative way, which could dramatically improve ones’ speech and even singing voice for that matter. The Vocal Science method is a holistic and alternative approach to voice mechanics. By the virtue of fact, the method suggests to remove the pressure of the sound from he vocal cords and lift the voice to the alternative muscles, which once put to work together in full conjunction and coordination, will amplify the sound 4 to 5 times over and will employ the wholesome vocal mechanism to work in its fullest capacity and with no pain or strain on the vocal anatomy. The space on the bottom of the throat is also released and thus, allows the room for the natural herbal and homeopathic remedies to work in the full force, which will greatly aid to the patients’ voice/vocal recovery. Please be advised that this process of restoration of the voice (after the vocal cords/vocal folds paralysis had occurred) is extremely tedious and intense. It could be also a very emotional process on the patient’s part. Obviously, their voice is not sounding the same and, at times, it Is difficult for them to pronounce certain syllables. I have seen a lot of tears in my studio/clinic, which sometimes served a positive deed, as after a good cry, the patient had regrouped and caught a second breath, so to speak. By that point, they got their sadness out of their heart and soul by releasing their emotions and even their voice became lighter and more compliant to the instruction. A lot of the patients, understandably, possess a lot of ‘stuffed-up’ emotions. That, by itself, could be one of the reasons of their voice disorder. I receive a lot of patients with thyroid problems and even removed thyroids due to cancer. In holistic teaching, the thyroid represents suppressed emotions and hurts. So, in the first place, they were experiencing something that, emotionally, they could not comprehend. Majority of the diseases are emotionally induced and then, they manifest in the physical body. For example: A bad marriage could cause a lot of anger and anguish. The human liver (in the holistic understanding) does represent suppressed anger. When one of the spouses dies of cancer, it is almost 100 out of 100 that it would be the cancer of thyroid or, even more so, cancer of liver. That’s, of course, if the marriage was full of disagreements and fights. So, from our side, we are wishing you peace and harmony in whatever you are doing in your life path. That will keep you happy and healthy & most likely by osmosis will keep your voice intact.
