How did you hear about TMV World?

  1. Hi! I'm new to singing, but I really have received much feedback on my voice. I'm a little lost in direction with what kind of songs I should go for or if I am in the wrong genre altogether? ill provide some links to some songs that I have tried. I'm really really inexperienced and uneducated with music. I've never been through any vocal lessons, and I haven't been through a music class in my life. The only reason I'm giving it a try is when im at a karaoke night at a bar a lot of people tell me that I should really get into it? Let me know what you think and if I should continue? Also, g
  2. Link: https://youtu.be/WERaHzmllfo This is my cover that i did of “Dont Know Why” by Norah Jones. Any and all feed back is welcome. Please review this song and let me know how you feel I did on my cover.
  3. I think many of us have a favourite singer or someone we want to sound like. I've been practising a song and I just CAN'T sound the same. I can get the same feel and all but it's just a much brighter voice than mine. In a way singing is the only instrument where you can't get the same sound always as someone else, guitarists can pick a tone first then just buy whatever gear they want. I'm not really talking about range or skill but timbre, can anyone relate?
  4. Yo TMVW People, Pals, and fellow lovers of sangin'! If you watch this video (starting after 5:05) past the alien stuff, the author explains some impressive voice technology advances made by Google. It's interesting, ... and I thought it was funny that the first thing I think of is how now ( soon ), any person who can mimic the singing mannerisms (a good impression of their articulation) of a famous singer, and has decent rhythm (those are "some" of the most basic skills), could turn on the effect and now, out of the speakers comes the Artist of their choice (on a drop down menu no
  5. I've gotten really good at pulling chest but I think for long term success I'll need to find a neutral position to sing in and eliminate strain. So my question for you guys is how do you make sure you can put in the right amount of effort to keep the breath flowing and not have the throat clinch up. What I've been doing to practice this is not pushing myself at all just trying to breathe and remain neutral and let the tone and the notes come, if they don't come I either go falsetto or change the note of the song I'm singing. I still feel like strain and reliance on the throat can creep in t
  6. I had mentioned this singer "Chris Stapleton" in another thread. Thought I'd share this video/song he recently published. I was really struck by the numerous examples of solid vocal athleticism that arise in this performance. I try not to overanalyze every good vocal too often, cuz sometimes I loose the "soul" of the song in my ear from all of the deconstruction I use to understand the vocal. Couldn't resist on this one. Still "hearing the soul" to date. I've tagged all the key words that I believe I recognize "done well" in this composition. Personally, I'm most impressed with his
  7. Yo! All my fellow singing geeks! I came across the article I've linked here (below video). I thought it is was very well written (a quick read), and includes a couple comments by Justin Stoney (coach most of us probably know from Youtube). I have read & posted in our "techniques" forum regarding so called "Natural Singers," percentages of the population who are or are not, training, and etc. Hope this helps lend some clarity to the matter(s). article - Singing Tips: Have A Certain Skull Shape, And Other Science Behind Carrying A Tune http://www.m
  8. Hello, I am having a serious and rather uncommon vocal issue and I was wondering if someone could shed some light on the situation. In early May of this year, I was very, very careless with my voice. I had always sung through basically blunt force trauma, but my voice had always rebounded- except this time, it didn't. For months I had pain after speaking , loss of range and projection problems. Finally, I was diagnosed with a hemorrhage of the false vocal folds. I was told it wasn't permanent, and put on modified, not total, vocal rest. From what I understand, true vocal fold he

    Steve Fraser is a noted expert on vowel modification, phonetics and formants for singing. Mr. Fraser is a recognized expert in the analysis of spectrograph analysis of singing. A spectrogram is a a time-varying spectral representation (forming an image) that shows how the spectral density of a signal varies with time. In the field of Time-Frequency Signal Processing, it is one of the most popular quadratic Time-Frequency Distribution that represents a signal in a joint time-frequency domain and that has the property of being positive.

  11. Hi, I have recently started practicing vocalizing a simple "EE" vowel and trying to hold that note, and I notice that it realy helps with cord closure. For example, I'll start the note on "EE" and be breathy for just a short while.. keep the air going.. and at some point it feels thats the cords come close together and a clean tone is produced, and after that I can hold the note with the clean tone in it. I am very curious to know what is the explanation behind this vowel and how does it work? Thanks!
  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. Had another epiphany tonight, I made the realization that I've been doing a bunch of downward slides on notes because it's easy. But what about upward slides? Upward slides can make high notes sound less disjointed when you start on a consonant that has a lower pitch. It will also emphasize more control over the diaphragm I suppose. Question though while singing with my guitar playing friend tonight I found it was easier to sing mid to high notes in a higher register especially once the higher register had been entered, got me thinking it should be possible to slide up and down registers t
  14. I just read this article about Xfactor's vocal coach who also trains Jessie J, Sam Smith and others famous singers. I found it quite interesting towards the last part of the article that he talks about needing raw talent to get the most out of your voice. What do you think? Do you agree? https://medium.com/for-life-journal/the-x-factor-vocal-coach-who-saw-money-in-one-direction-7481d565a24d#.igbgyo7zp
  15. CVI vs TVS: Review of “The Four Pillars of Singing″ BY FELIX, ON APRIL 21ST, 2015 So I finally decided to buy “The Four Pillars of Singing″ by Robert Lunte (TVS, The Vocalist Studio). Some of his tutorials and lectures on YouTube caught my attention and after a few days of consideration (+200$ is a lot of money) I decided to give it a try. When I started my singing studies I had decided to look at as many different approaches as possible and learn as much as I can and Robert Luntes perspective is certainly interesting and he definitely knows what he is talking about. I will c
  16. Hi all, If you looked at the "Vocal Health" sub forum, you might have a seen a few topics that I have opened regarding issues that I had and exercises that I do and help to fix my speaking voice. Basically I use singing vocal exercises that work on my lower "chest" voice range, more specifically Lip Rolls, "Ya"s, "Gi", "Keh" and Humming. My main issue resolved around the volume of my speaking, and this situation became worse when going out to loud places like Bars or Clubs. Hence, why I started doing these exercises and they surely helpd me mostly with cord closure.. But yesterday I discove
  17. A GREAT BOOK ON THE ACOUSTICS OF SINGING I just had a great discussion with Ken Bozeman, the author of the book, "Practical Vocal Acoustics - Pedagogic Applications for Teachers & Singers". We talked a lot about how the CT and TA relate to each other and specifically, what they are doing inside of contemporary belt voice. I think I am lot more clear on CT/TA involvement now and "get it". I also have this book guys. It talks a lot about the acoustics of singing, but is practical and not too difficult to follow. It comes with a CD and a web site you can check into with supporting materials.
  18. Introduction In the male voice lower and mid ranges, (what has been traditionally called the "chest voice"), the harmonic structure of the sung tone contains many partials - harmonics, which fit nicely into the pattern of resonances for any particular vowel chosen. Throughout this range, the strong, lower harmonics are reinforced by the first vowel resonance corresponding with Formant 1, (F1), midrange harmonics are reinforced by the second vowel resonance from Formant 2 (F2), and higher harmonics are emphasized by the higher "twang" or "singer's" formant resonances. The combination o
  19. One of my bigest problems with singing at this moment is pitch. I have been practicing my pitch by using a guitar tuner. Is this a smart idea or im creating bad habits?
  20. What are the top things to remember when training narrowed vowels? Please share... I'll start. Here is my contribution. NARROWED VOWELSHow To Sing Narrowed Vowels & Their BenefitsThere are three kinds of vowels in singing; open vowels, middle vowels and narrowed vowels. As many students of singing of all levels of experience can tell you, when the lyrics of songs take the singer into narrowed vowels, the singing voice begins to become troublesome if they are not executed properly. In fact, the inability to sing narrowed vowels are one of the major reasons why the singing voice does not co
  21. What an experience I had teaching two masterclasses at Mount Saint Mary's University in Brentwood, California for The Vocalizeu artist intensive week, April 10-19th, 2015. I have to admit, I was extremely nervous as I do not like public speaking. Throw a wig on me and ask me to perform for thousands- that's easy. But speaking about something as divided and controversial as singing technique, well, that's another animal. During the months leading up to the presentation, I was trying to figure out how to present my philosophies about singing not only to a room full of artists, performers, sin

  25. Vocally and otherwise speaking. The world, evidently, gone crazy. And, unfortunately, it looks like it could be to the point of no return. Let's examine what has happened to the world lately? What has happened is that nobody speaks, especially on the phone. Everybody is texting and e-mailing and practically nobody communicates otherwise. Not necessarily any of those people have a voice problem; and that's why they are afraid to speak. But, all of them, however, independently, have a problem in common; they simply do not know how to communicate anymore, (voice problem or not).
