How did you hear about TMV World?

  1. Hi. I am dying to get the mixed voice, and I tried exercises on YouTube (moan upwards from vocal fry, trying to flip up and down the break, etc.) the whole afternoon and now I'm drinking cough syrup, and I still don't think I've found it. I am still not able to sing higher than my chest voice can without head voice, so I assume what I've done today is just a chest voice with distortion (or creaking? not sure which one is it). What are your experiences for finding mixed voice? Any suggestions / videos are welcomed. Thank you. P.S. I'm also starting to self study with the SLS book. I think they use the word middle voice instead of mixed voice, but I have to be able to do it, before polishing it with exercises. P.S.2 I believe if I keep trying many different ways, I can do it eventually. I tried many many different ways to learn the Russian R (voiced alveolar trill), than eventually I got it. Did the same with the French R (voiced uvular trill), which took even more trial and errors, but with persistence I eventually got it too.
  2. Mixed voice is my main problem in singing. I probably can sing very high mixed, but I cannot bridge this high mixed with chest voice. I cannot sing mixed below A4, and my high mixed is too nasal, it's not brutal enough for me. Some crying, baby sounds don't help me because I cannot make them more chest and they don't bridge with my chest voice as well. I'm attaching the examples. I can belt D4 but if I try higher notes, I just start yelling. Attempts.mp3
  3. I am a singer (classically trained, but culturally a singer of soul/gospel/r&b). I lead worship weekly on Sundays and have realized that I find it much easier to remain pitch accurate it my head voice than in chest. Is this common? Is anyone able to share the science behind why? (Ps. In classical music I am a low voice - I sing baritone, but in popular music I vary in range as a tenor, as gospel often has tenors in high vocal ranges, and I’m pretty comfortable there as long as my technique is appropriate) Thank you!
  4. He's been called the "greatest rock and roll singer of all time!" Some people agree, some don't. What's' new right? Personally he's not in my fav singer list. What I will say about Axl is, he has seemingly done very well maintaining his vocal health for the extreme style singing he does. His stint with AC/DC was impressive for sure! This is why I found this video interesting. Axl is not singing in full voice on all the high notes in this performance. He's using a semi-falsetto tone. Singers might do this for 2 reasons (I can think of), 1- They lost that region of their voice from screaming, coughing, nodules, or alcohol. OR 2- They may be on the edge of losing their voice from fatigue from excessive performances and/or singing improperly so, now he's trying to preserve his voice by being selective about what parts of the song he's willing to sing full voice (what he appears to be doing in this song). If he allows himself to heal (does some healing therapy vocalize), he should be able to sing full voice in the higher notes again. I guess I'm more of a purist on this, I'd say, "cancel the concert rather than sing like that, it sounds like shit!" I have found that any time I'm singing in the "high performance" realm of the vocal spectrum, I can be singing properly in every other way yet, if I don't engage solid appoggio (strong diaphragmatic support), my voice will still fatigue relatively rapidly! It is (in my experience) the number one defense (out of many) against vocal fatigue and damage!
  5. I am practicing singing for a while.. Almost for 5-6 months.. Now i am able to sing in mix in my chest range.. But when i go to my upper range i lose connection of the vocal folds... I have a good cord closure in my chest range..but i lose it in the upper range.. What should be my next step? Or how far i am way for those strong belted high notes?
  6. Hey! I'm having a hard time figuring out the voice i've created. It kinda feels like mixed voice in some degree, but I think it's not mixed voice cause I when I ascend my pitch it goes breathier and not connected to the head voice (it breaks) and feels like it stucks in my throat (not smoothly transition into the head voice area/ in head voice placement). It only sounds like it's in chest and head but if I ascend it stays that way. It doesn't hurt my throat and i don't strain at all when i do it. I'm confused of what to do, am i supposed to train it or let go cause i've tried all the "find your mixed voice" on youtube, it's the same, i ended up at the same spot. Do i have to train my chest voice ? Cuz i'd been training my head voice like more or less than 1 year by singing in head voice. But now i'm training my chest voice. My chest voice range is E2-C#4/D4, C#4-D4 kinda struggling but ok, D#4 straight up shouting. I can sing D#4 if I transition into that voice. My transition point into that voice is around A3 if I sing quietly, it sounds normal until it gets to F4. I've never took a vocal lesson cause i'm broke lmao. What do you guys think I should do ? What do you guys recommend ? Voice 018_sd.m4a
  7. Hi all, This is my first forum post. I'm looking for some advice. I have improved in my singing recently to push chest a bit further, but I find singing softly at high pitches is difficult to avoid being shrill. I can reach high notes in falsetto/head voice but struggle to get a pleasing tone. I would like to round off that tone a bit. Any advice on where to focus my efforts: https://vimeo.com/381645779 Thanks in advance! Dan
  8. I am looking for suggestions to work on passaggio improvement and techniques in vocal lessons.
  9. What are some suggestions for exercises and repertoire for helping a student gain strength and control in their lower register? Also suggestions for going between chest voice and mixed voice?
  10. I'm 25, have been casually doing some exercises for years, but only focused on training everyday for the last 2 months. What should I concentrate on FIRST? I would like sincere criticism. I don't think my voice is good atm, so albeit knowing what's working is a good thing I really want help in fixing my **?color?(**my voice just doesn't sound pleasant to me even if not strained and in pitch), my agility in the upper range, and understanding what out of pitch, tone and key mean...cause I haven't figured it out, and I don't know which one I'm doing, although probably all 3! Of course I know a vocal teacher is the best option...but atm, money is short and I don't feel good about getting free sample lesson one after another and not hiring anyone...they need to eat and should waste time with whom is actually going to pay. I'm providing 3 songs that I both like, and each cover a different part of my range, feel free to comment on whatever aspect strikes out more to you!(IT'S PROBABLY VERY LOUD) YM\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\(Your Man-Josh Turner) This one starts and stays on my lower range(I can hit the F2 with focus, but here I only managed to get to the G2) CR1\\\\\\\\\\\\(Country Roads) End verse The most difficult one tbh..I did it because it matches a range close, and passing my bridge, Definitely some wrong pitches there, but I really don't know what to do to ease this part of my voice. LP1\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ LP2\\\\\\\\\\\(Livin on a prayer-Bon Jovi) I provided 2 audios cause although it wasn't as difficult to hit and maintain notes as with the previous song, actually hitting the Eb5 instead of the F5, E5 or even D#5 seemed impossible, it's as if the higher the octave the less precise I get with pitches. Thanks so much for your time!
  11. I am working on my singing and have been taking lessons. My issue - I seem to do okay with head voice when I go above G4. However, when I try to see in the F4, G4 area on certain songs, it comes out “shouty” and harsh. I can hit the notes fine, but I am not getting quality. If it is a softer, quieter song, I don’t have this issue. I have this issue when trying to do fuller sounding notes in this area. I would greatly appreciate any feedback anyone cares to give. I am not a great singer yet and am trying to learn. Thanks!
  12. Hi everyone So basically I've just found my mixed voice and I can use it to achieve a good sound, and when I perform it, I feel no pain, strain or tension. However 30-60 minutes after I've stopped singing, when I've used the technique, I get a sore throat. I've heard this is something to do with your throat not being used to resonance with the soft palate raised. Is this normal at first? Or am I doing something wrong?
  13. Hi, i always wondering my vocal fach. My speaking voice sounds heavy and dopey but in tenor tessitura. I'm very insecure about my voice sounds weird in others ear. But, i'm very love to sing, i can't stop doing this. This is my voice sample This song is easier for me because alot of headvoice. https://soundcloud.com/fadelsawi/shes-gone-moris-morty-monty And, this one is harder because i need to stretch my chest up to A4 (my second passaggio). https://soundcloud.com/fadelsawi/risalah-hati-monty
  14. I don't know how to describe it but it's annoying it does it randomly. Is it because of poor chords closure (I have 2 cysts on the vocal chords)? https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-f2_iT-2gUlKpLx4-nzzMew12Xc1xGMM/view?usp=drivesdk
  15. DEFINITIVE OPERA TECHNIQUE for all styles of singing- This is one of the most renowned opera singers in the world.

Unlock access to the traditional Italian bel canto method of singing based on historical techniques. The lessons are designed to be highly concentrated to help you learn and teach as efficiently as possible, and to be a point of reference both at the beginning of your studies and throughout your career.
  16. Years ago this WAS the best forum for singers and teachers. Those wishing to learn and those willing to help and those who just want to discuss their thoughts on singing and training.. There is still a need for this forum and a community to belong to and interact with. I was here when the community was thriving and when things declined. There are two main issues that singers have to deal with. Egos and rejection. The thoughts of "Am I good enough?" and "Who has the right to tell me I am not good enough". No one has the right to tell you that you are not good enough. But, everyone does have a right to their opinion, and opinions differ. Some people will have a more pleasant starting sound than other people(according to "Popular" opinion) and people have different issues vocally to deal with. Not to mention the different purposes for wanting to improve and the different applications. So, when you ask "Am I good enough?" You will get opinions that you may not like and you may get opinions that would make you believe there is no improvement needed. The FACT is that your voice is constantly changing and keeping up with the changes and making improvements takes work and practice. Any state that your voice is in right now can and will change with time and the way you choose to develope. The problem arose with people arguing opinions as facts. Just because you like or dislike something or believe something does not make it a fact or correct. Letting other people express their opinion without challenging it will give yourself different ways to deal with issues that you may have with your own development. To that extent and also, Giving advice and expressing your own opinion will give you insights on how you yourself feel about your development and other ways and things you can do to improve your own vocal skills. Back to the topic of this post: Do you want to continue with this forum and give and receive advice and engage in conversations about vocal improvement, heath and how things work for vocalists and why they work or do not? YOU, who or whom ever you are, need to take part for this forum to continue and grow and be great again.
  17. Hey Guys i'm new on this forum, I would really appreciate your opinion about my High C bandicam 2019-02-25 18-45-28-988.mp4
  18. I am hoping to audition andI have to submit an online video. It's all accapella. Please give me your very honest feedback about my voice. Why does my tone change so much and sound so different? My chest voice to me sounds bad, like almost manly, but it is easiest for me to sing. While my head voice sound like it has a better tone, I get physically tired singing it and I can't seem to breathe right no matter how hard I practice from the diaphragm. Worse, my left side of the throat hurts sometimes. What vocal range am I? I noticed I talk very deeply and it hurts as well. I've always felt my voice is very 'bahh'bahh' like..almost gravelly. It doesn't have that crystal clear sharp voice I hear in most voices. How can i achieve that? Are my vocal cords damaged? My higher notes are unstable--it can either hit right or get REALLY pitchy. What am I doing wrong? What kind of voice/larynx/technique should i use to ensure a consistently good tone? What do you think are my biggest problems with my voice in your opinion? Lastly, which track do you think I should use to audition? Thanks for helping!! audition songs(in another langauge but i hope you don't mind): https://soundcloud.com/user-940698627/iu-ending-scene https://soundcloud.com/user-940698627/iu-dear-moon https://soundcloud.com/user-940698627/memories-of-the-wind-audiotrimmercom chest voice-just for reference: https://soundcloud.com/user-940698627/hero-mariah-carey
  19. 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
  20. I know he's long out of the spotlight, Gary Puckett & the Union Gap...famous once for hits like Lady Willpower, Young Girl, Woman Woman, Over You back in the 60's. I always admired his tonal quality. But I recently ran across this solo album he did of some rock hits and I developed a newfound appreciation for his obvious skill and seemless transitions on these tunes. If you listen to him, you can pick up on many great things you might want to incorporate or develop in your own voice. Such consistency of tone, he sounds so smooth and seamless going in and out of falsetto head, voice, chest voice like nothing. Such a mixture of dark and light quality. In fact you will think he's singing a lot higher than he really is. I study his vowel particular choices...facsinating...to me. He's right up there all the greats IMO, Tony Bennett, Andy Williams, Sinatra, etc. This is really worth a serious listen! Check out the entire album.. here are just a few:
  21. I've been really struggling determining my voice type. I've been singing since i was young but it was only the past year where i started being concerned with technique, agility, range, etc... I know i am not the best singer but it would really be great if someone will try to classify my voice and help me develop! My lows notes usually is from C#2-B3 but it can also reach B1 (vocal fry), I my voice starts to crack somewhere in F4 and G4 idk if i start transitioning from chest to mixed here but i know my voice switches into something else in this part. Idk where my head voice starts but it can reach up to G5. My falsetto can go as high as C6 sometimes Eb6 or higher but it's really hard and sounds very weak if i try to go higher than C6 and my whole voice gets tired and uncontrollable after overutelising it. Idk if i am resonant or if i have a good support. I'm not sure if i'm doing runs properly. Also, idk if i'm singing healthy. Self learning is hard ughhh Very high falsetto: https://soundcloud.com/user-935041544/img-2954 Comfortable falsetto: Me singing:
