  1. 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?
  2. 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!
  3. 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!
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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:
  13. 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:
  14. I decided to run a little experiment and (for the first time in my life) analyze exactly what notes comprise the M1, M2, and what I'll call M3 regions of my vocal track. Just for fun, and to share with some of my fellow voice geeks here. Even though I received effective vocal coaching, it was a long time ago when popular vocal teachers did not bother explaining or analyzing anything unless you were willing to sit there and pay $80/hr. to chat (never happened for me). As a result, I never paid too much attention to notes and my "range." I would always reference songs my vocal hero's were singing, and I could tell my M2 notes were getting beefier from the vocal instruction / training. It is interesting to note that, after so many years of singing without strain in M2, I actually forgot how to pull chest voice. I discovered this one day when someone asked me to explain to them how I was able to sing "tenor notes" when they knew I was a baritone. I started to explain the difference between M1 & M2, I wanted to sing an example of straining to sing a high C. We all had a laugh as I struggled to remember how to pull M1 that high without singing in M2. So, lately I've been contemplating expanding my range a tad higher than I've been satisfied with for so many years. The pdf illustrates what I found out about my "instrument." I thought it was interesting to see how much more agile my M2 is than my M1! The overlaps are also interesting for me to see correlated with the notes. I'd like to start training those weaker M2 notes. I'd like to see if I can change the pink D#5, and A5, to red! Only two notes yet, I know it will take a lot of effort, those notes are not easy to make beefy. MY VOCAL TRACK ILLUSTRATED.pdf
  15. This song is out there. I like it, I'm happy with it, but I want to learn how to take my voice higher obviously. I'm a baritone I think. I can hit A4 but not with agility. This song goes up to F#4 which is typical of baritone. Constructive criticism is appreciated. Take a listen to my voice and let me know what you hear. Thank you! https://drive.google.com/open?id=1socIDJTGXkjGqf01oIiebfCOlYT3M06d
  16. I am giving some voice lessons to a adult male who sings really well for the most part. But he has some trouble singing through his passagio when working on octave jumps and becomes tense in the neck. What exercises would be helpful for him to sing through the vocal break and not cause tension in his neck?
  17. Hello! I'm Emily & I been into singing contests/performances since I was super little, then joined acapella at around 15 and have been in it ever since. There has definitely been a change in voice from 12 years old to now. When I was younger, my "technique" or sound was kind of the opposite we can say haha. I used to strain so bad! I do still feel some strain in my throat but that's after a lot of singing, and I do feel it is easier to sing the way I am now than in the way I was when I was 12 lol. In the video provided, I would strongly appreciate it if anyone can give a nice analysis on my register(is it chest??) and **anything** I could work on! one thing I am concerned about for the past few years is that I have a "beegees" feel (at least my dad said) to my voice no matter how low I try to sing. it sounds like an airy type of voice. I wanted to know if that could maybe be my natural voice or if it's a way of coping with the straining I used to put on my voice when I was younger. Or possibly if that's simply how my voice developed over many years. I do feel pretty natural singing this way. Thank you loves! https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Vuq-hOL_a9nLNrSqGOxSTwBp14qPZ0Eo https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-roCmLNo2wXBw2dwACmSPiZxF7ATR7M9 https://drive.google.com/open?id=1EsJbI8nJid0I7qpmI2M2s_Zv_fOr8ijF
  18. If you're doing it wrong. I tried for years to match these guys who were up in tenor range, because a lot of guys I listened to were tenors. I couldn't do it without flipping into falsetto and ending up with a completely different tone. I finally start working with somebody who knows and not only do I find I'm getting up in that range, I find out that I'm a tenor! After believing for 8 years that I'm a baritone. I got several opinions on that. Some thought I was a baritone, some weren't sure. It just goes to show that it doesn't matter how many times you do something or how hard you try if you're doing it wrong. Failure does not mean you can't do something. An important lesson.
  19. WhatsUp Guys, I want to know what is it that really actually happening to the singing voice and the high notes when singing publicly & spontaneously I feel like These days we live in a Technology world that is near taking over our social life as human beings lol so i just thought we should be more social to each other. And an idea came up in my head, why not Practicing my vocals in a such enviroment! Remember this is just a part of my Training Routine, so i'm glad if you give me alot of feedback! Mash up with all the feedbacks you can get! Peace!
  20. Hi, I have always, as long as I have defined my self as a singer, experienced periods of bad vocal health. Over time I have learned better technique and learned to sing smart and kind of use damage control paths through songs on rough days but I find it really hard to just surrender to not knowing what really goes on. Problem is basically this. During periods which can last from a few days to a few months in row, I experience like some configuration just goes out after just a very short time singing notes over the passagio. What happens after this is that my falsetto/neutral is fine while my twang is totally gone and trying to produce twanged vowels result in a complete mess. I can still sing cross the passagio with heavy voice production in a kind of overdriven manner but the smooth transition is gone. Funny though how the configuration seem to work somewhat initially only to go out completely after a short while. The common answer to vocal problems like this might be acid reflix. Go see a doctor, get your subscriptions and eliminate triggers. Yes, my doctor has seen symptoms of acid reflux and I have been on and off prescription medicines for a long time. I rather not take them though considering negative sideffects from such meds. Also the meds doesn't really seem to do the trick or might work initially like some kind of pseudo effect. But the problems always seem to come back. I also remember doing laryngoscopy one time during a period of experiencing problems and the doctor could not find any obvious redness. That thew me a little bit of the chair thinking it might have to do with something else. I seldom experience severe "morning voice" which seem to be a common symptom of LPR or GERD. The problem only occurs when singing over the passagio and during long vocal lines. I am interested in what other things could cause the symptoms i'm describing. A theory of mine is that it is related to viral infection. I base this theory upon the fact that problems seem to go when after periods of being sick. My theory is that there could be viral infections that does not break out and just sits there waiting for the body defense system to react. Another theory is that this is technique related and could be the result of a vocal blow out or something like that. Allhough I never change my technique and when I have a good day everything is fine and this could sometimes be from one day to the next so it really does not make sense. I wonder what you think. Have anyone of you had or maybe are having the same kind of problems?

  23. Hey forum , I’m new here and having been practicing singing for a while now. I believe I find my mix.and I have a few questions about it. 1: how do I make it more chesty 2: why on some days it’s a bit harder to get my mix going. 3: should I keep on with the “nay nay nay” vocal exercise after I found it? Please judge my little vocal clip there and let me know what you think and how I can improve thanks!
