  1. Hello, i am teenager boy. I do have an interest in singing, and I do sing alot! I also get complimented a lot that i got a beautiful voice. But there is a big problem no one realizes except me, myself. I got a sharp/heavy tone in high/medium notes and a light voice in low notes like that of ATIF ASLAM (Pakistani singer). Everyday when i wake up, my voice is fresh, crispy and capable of reaching any high note. When i go to school, its like that for the first 2-3 periods, but then the voice starts changing, it becomes flat, and it feels my voice is blocked and I LITERALLY can't sing any medium or high notes (even my low notes becomes worse). It stays like that and throughout the the school timing and it becomes worse on the timezone when school overs. Even my speaking voice loses its sharpness and i sound like an annoying 5 year old. I know that sharpness in the voice at the morning is because of the those acids after you wake up but MY voice is NOT like what it changes to at school. Its usually fine in most cases when at home alone, but why does my voice literally becomes so trash as time passes in school. is it because i talk alot in the school? i tried not talking much, as much as it is possible to NOT talk in school, and it delayed the time when my voice starts to get worse, but it doesnt stop it. When i come home after school, the voice stays like that for a while until at night around 9Pm my voice starts to get its sharpness back. Sometimes, it doesn't, so i have to drink honey in warm water for it to be fixed, and sometimes even that honey drink doesnt work!! how do i maintain my real, sharp voice. HOW DO i keep it when i need it the most (afternoon in school, because of singing competitions etc). Is there a different procedure to maintain a sharp voice, if so, please help me with my case. It's getting depressing day by day!!
  2. Foods to sleep by for Vocal Health Getting enough sleep is one of the most important things a voice professional needs. When we get the proper amount of sleep, at least 7 hours, our body is refreshed, strong and full of energy. The strength, power, clarity and focus of our voice is very dependent on our body. If we feel weak and depleted then our voice will more than likely sound the same way. A good nights sleep is crucial for quality vocal health. While exercise and mental clarity are definitely important for a good nights sleep, diet is equally important. Vocal Health and Eating before sleeping The body needs to rest while sleeping. If we eat up to three hours before sleeping, then our digestive system is working very hard digesting our meal, taking energy that should be storing up as we sleep. This energy is also needed to restore and heal whatever our body and voice is going through even if it is just basic repair from the days normal activities. In addition to, and even more important is the effect of eating before sleeping on the voice. Eating before sleeping is one of the most common reasons voice professionals have GERD, also known as acid reflux. Many times because of eating before sleeping and lying down while digesting, food is not able to digest properly and excess acid from the stomach can move up into the throat and sit on the vocal cords causing a myriad of problems ranging from waking up with mucus on the cords to inflammation and even vocal cord deterioration. Eating the wrong foods before sleeping can also lead to a difficult nights sleep due to the effects on the brain. Sugars, white flour, processed foods, dyes, fried foods, glutens and carbohydrates all effect the brain negatively not allowing it to slow down and rest while sleeping. Tryptophan for Vocal Health It is important for voice professionals to know what to eat before they sleep to get a good nights sleep. One amino acid that is very useful in helping the body to slow down and rest peacefully is tryptophan. Tryptophan helps to combat depression, stabilize moods, and insomnia. It also helps to alleviate stress, is good for migraine headaches, and aids in weight control by reducing appetite. If you must eat within three hours of going to sleep, try eating smaller amounts of food and eating foods with high levels of tryptophan. Some excellent sources of foods containing tryptophan and have a low potential to create mucus include: Alaskan salmon Asparagus Baked potatoes with their skin Beans Brown rice Chicken breast Cod Eggs Halibut Hazelnuts Hummus Kelp Lentils Meats Nuts ( sprouted not roasted ) Quinoa Seaweed Sesame seeds Shrimp Snapper Soy protien Spinach Spirulina Tuna Turkey Winter Squash Certainly this list is not all inclusive and there may be some foods that do not digest well in one person and are okay for another. Each person needs to know what works for them and their vocal regimen. As a voice professional your vocal health must be one of the top priorities in your life. Get the right amount of sleep and eat properly to insure your voice delivers for you when you need it to. As always, I wish you the best on your quest for Superior Vocal Health David Aaron Katz
  3. Isnt it much easier to sing above your speaking range? I find that when I use support from the diaphragm when singing with power I feel like I am drawn higher. Some teachers, including mine, says that for higher notes it is important to think "down". I like this a lot. I really feel like support forces me up. When I hum a note with support i often end up on F#3 which is really my highest speaking pitch (if just talking normally). I use classical singing rather than pop singing. My power is above the speaking range. I feel like there is a mechanism in singing that forces my up to the higher notes.
  4. Hi everyone! I am a huge admirer of Shreya Ghoshal and have been a huge fan of her singing right from the time she rose to prominence in Bollywood. One of this generation’s finest singers, I have always been awed by her soothing voice and singing style. I follow her on Facebook and Instagram and always try to keep myself updated on her life and work. Being one of her superfans, I have started an initiative where I have tried to gather as much content about her as possible in one place (https://www.xpert.tv/profile/?xprt=shreya-ghoshal) so that, like me, other superfans can learn from her. If you are a Shreya Ghoshal superfan, please do help me with this initiative. If you have any content, such as videos, interviews, articles or podcasts related to Shreya Ghoshal that you feel deserves to be on the platform, do share it with me so I can duly add it. Help me in this endeavour so that all of Shreya Ghoshal’s fans can learn from her and get inspired.
  5. For those of you that have done 100s of covers; how often do you need to keep singing them before you start to forget them and have to start relearning it again?
  6. Hello guys. I have always wanted to improve my voice for singing. I play guitar often and when I start singing my friends all run away xD. I have been training my voice for a long time. The problem is I don't have the earing and cannot fall onto notes. I recently came across a program which is promising that it will help for improving the voice and before buying it I wanted to ask if anyone has tried it and if yes does it help? The program is in the following link. https://thevocaliststudio.com/udemy-singing-course/ Thanks in advance.
  7. Hello I am having real trouble finding my falsetto, I can't make that effortless sound, it is always strained. I was always able to make a voice that I thought was falsetto, but I got to the conclusion that is flageolet instead. I got really used to it and it is relaxed, and really sounds like falsetto, but I think it isn't falsetto mainly because: - It isn't connected to chest voice. I know sometimes it's difficult to connect head and chest voice, but this is extremely disconnected, it is a different world. - I am able to transition smoothly from whistle to this flageolet. Not trying hard at all, just lowering the pitch from whistle, I end up in this voice. Demo: https://instaud.io/3rzk So, an example of this strained 'falsetto', in a moment with the voice quite tired (so that the strain is noticeable): https://instaud.io/3rzm Same song, in flageolet (I know it sounds a lot like a falsetto):https://instaud.io/3rzd An example of a song, in falsetto, that sounded better, in a moment my voice wasn't that tired: https://instaud.io/3rzf (Yes, I like Ed Sheeran XD). This is as close to a relaxed falsetto that I can get. So, any advice on how to find that relaxed falsetto? Maybe I am still unable to do it because I have those muscles untrained? I've tried yawning, making the sound of an owl, or Mickey Mouse's voice... Everything is strained. Any advice, or exercise? Thank you in advance Whistle to flageolet.mp3 Strained falsetto.mp3 Flageolet.mp3
  8. Hi. I seem to have a problem. I imagine a pitch in my head before I sing it. But the thing is, while I'm singing it, it sounds normal, but when played back, I hear a constant microtonal flat. A friend told me that it might be because my pitch expectations are warping my perception of what is actually coming out of my mouth. In other words, it seems that I'm hearing the expected/imagined pitch more than the actual one. Another friend told me that the "formant/timbre" of my voice is higher in my head than what is actually heard outside. My voice literally sounds deeper and lower-pitched in a recording. The higher formant might make the illusion of a slightly higher pitch than what is actually heard. Sometimes, if I'm extremely concentrated on pitch, it feels like I can hear two different pitches when I sing, but I'm sure one is in my mind and the other one is real. Another issue I have is that my vocal muscles are inseparably linked to my pitch imagination. Sometimes, I am aware that I'm singing slightly flat, so I try to sing a note slightly higher. The issue with that is that I cannot do that without imagining a slightly sharp note and it gets disorienting. For instance, if I were to imagine a B, my vocal muscles would lock in to a slightly flat B. I could adjust my vocal muscles to an accurate B, but my mind will automatically imagine a slightly sharp B. My friend who is vocalist told me that it's because I learned pieces by singing along to pre-existing recordings and that it's natural to unconsciously sing a tiny bit flat when doing so as not to overshadow the vocals in the reference recording. That would basically mean that this inseparable inaccurate link between vocal muscle contraction and pitch imagination is mainly due to muscle memory and I have no idea how to undo that. I know I'm not tone deaf because I can clearly distinguish between notes, even on the microtonal level, on recordings. I can also hear microtonal sharps and flats when others are singing. I even have pretty good relative pitch. But it seems that it goes away when I'm singing in real time thanks to this psychoacoustic/psychosomatoacoustic (if such a word exists) issue. Any tips for this frustrated fellow? (Edit: I don't seem to have this problem when singing falsetto or within my comfort range.)
  9. As tenors what pitch do you like to use for the recitation tone (used in eg church music or other kinds of music)?
  10. I have been playing guitar for some time now, and i want to be able to pick up the chords for a song instantly, but i have major difficulty in singing the sound i hear. So i tried singing a few songs, really tried, and realized i have absolutely no vocal range, doesnt get sharper or "darker", it's just the word itself. If i try to do the song how it really is, either the voice dissapears or i cant hold the note for even 0.5 sec, just jumps back and forth with sharp and "dark". Even watched some videos to see if i have correct form, like chest up, chin slightly down, breathing and all, but my voice simply has no pitch whatsoever besides the natural one. How can i upgrade my vocal range dramatically? I would like to be able to sing, atleast decently in about 6 months, so i can play guitar and sing at same time And not tonedeaf btw 17y, male. https://streamable.com/rk1hg So sorry for making you guys hear this, destroying the music
  11. What are some techniques that will help a student learn how to use good breath support?
  12. My voice naturally has a little bit of rasp after singing for years but for the most part my voice is pretty clean. I'd love some tips to get more grit especially on the top notes!!
  13. I am a person who dont easily understand how other People experience stuff so please be very concrete with me. Some talk about passagio (bridge in English?). I see different bridges in my voice. I need help with what the correct terminology would be. I have my speaking voice around D#3/E3. When I go lower to Bb2 I go to my lower voice (bellow speaking voice). There is a bridge between those. If I go higher to G3 I go above the speaking voice. There is a bridge between those. If I go even higher to D4 there is Another bridge. Then at F#4 there is another bridge. The at G#4 there is yet another bridge. What is the correct vocal terminology for this?
  14. I talked with a director of a Gregorian schola who said that they would even sing as low as A2 (must be great for the baritones but not for me). I want to sing with them since this is music I like a lot. According to one vocal teacher, with whom I agree, the best key for Silent night, when I sing, is C. That high F4 works ok but I shouldn't sing low notes. Did/do the great tenors have any problems with A2? Gregorian chant seems kind of too low for me if A2 is a must. I would even choose higher keys then what is found in hymnals. I disslike singing low notes. When a teacher tells you that your voice has a tenor quality what does it mean? And is tenor voices rare since most men sing too low at sing-alongs? I had one audition with the schola director and she made me sing the low A2 but it was uncomfortable. I dont see any good reasons why we should sing below C3. What are your practical advice(s)?
  15. I'm teaching a few voice lessons in a undergraduate music education class and am working with a female student who is breathy and lacks confidence in her singing. What exercises or tips do you have to improve her confidence and help with breathiness? She plays french horn and has good breath support but doesn't think she is a good singer.
  16. Hello all! I am new at teaching voice lessons, and I was wondering if anyone could offer advice. How do you help a female voice use their breath to produce a more consistent sound, especially in their higher range?
  17. What are some good ways and/or vocalizes to get your students to really use their breath to get a better sound throughout the rehearsal? Does movement while singing work? If so, what are some other ways to help with a student not getting a full sound?
  18. I have always loved singing however never tried to purse it because I never thought I would improve, but recently I decided to follow my dreams and started taking up vocal lessons. It been 3 months since I've started professionally learning how to sing and I've seen significant changes, nevertheless I am still not satisfied with my singing and would like to know how I can improve it.
  19. What song have you been addicted to lately? For me, it's this song: Another Life by D'angelo. Came out officially 7 months ago. I've been listening to it ever since, and it's almost been an everyday thing. Even made the 3rd chorus my ringtone, and I end up singing along every time my phone rings What about everyone else? What song have you been listening to a lot lately?
  20. I remember seeing posts like these for years. Now, I finally get it somewhat. What are some good ways of accomplishing this?
  21. I know that classifying a voice type isn’t something I should focus on but I’m just curious about what I would be labeled as. My speaking range is from G2/Ab2-D3/E3 (this is just when I speak, I tend to reach G2 when I’m tired or sick) I am untrained and have never taken a singing class, but the highest my chest voice can push if I try is D4 and maybe F4. I don’t try and use head or falsetto since I don’t want to damage my chords since I’m not a trained singer but I feel in mixed and in head voice I could reach higher notes. Again, I know voice classification shouldn’t matter and that everyone has their own unique voice but I am curious what I would be labeled. Btw I’m new on this forum and I wasn’t sure where to post this.
  22. I think lots of people here might have heard somebody say that a voice gave them chills. What is it about a voice that can trigger this kind of response in somebody's body? This question could also even be extended to an emotional response period.
  23. Which vocal course is best? (I want sing mainly rock - from art rock, blues rock, swing to heavy metal but too can sing most of music genre) I hear (mostly) good opinions about: Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy and course '' How To Sing Better Than Anyone Else '', Kevin Richards (Rpm Vocal Studio) and course '' Breaking The Chains '' ''Superior Singing Method'' of Aaron Anastasi And '' Singing Success 360'' of Brett Manning What do you think about these courses and which is best and help me 'increase' my voice? - Lyssie
