How did you hear about TMV World?

  1. Hello! I am a relatively new singer, I've been taking weekly vocal lessons for about a year. I recently switched teachers after realizing the one I'd been seeing didn't know very much about singing technique beyond the very basics, and I want to take my singing to the next level. My new teacher strongly emphasized "twang" as something I'm going to need to sustainably utilizing my upper range in the style of singing I am interested in (pop punk) and gave me some exercises to help develop it. However, the sensation I am experiencing when attempting to create this sound feels a lot like strain and tension, which makes me think I might be doing it wrong. I do intend to explore this further with my teacher the next time I see her, but I wanted to get a jump start and ask if this is a common mistake or how I might be able to avoid this.
  2. 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!
  3. Here is my song, "Lord of Sadness" ENJOY! SHARE A LINK TO YOUR SINGING! This was a paid gig. The lyrics were provided to me and we then wrote the groove and produced the video. Super fun. As musicians, sometimes a good song speaks to you and reveals itself to you. It tells you what to do. The song has a "map" and an "instruction manual" that comes with it intuitively after years of singing and coaching songs. Among other things, this includes recognizing what the groove is. Where the accents are and what the characters of the story are doing and who they are. Singing is theater. And it is our job and privilege to tell a story as musicians. But it takes a LOT of practice to know how to do that. If you are interested in learning how to master your voice and own a song, contact us: www.TheVocalistStudio.com.
  4. Child In Time - Robert Lunte THIS SONG IS ICONIC. THE ORIGINAL WAS SUNG BY IAN GILLAN, OF DEEP PURPLE. IT IS UNQUESTIONABLY CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF THE GREATEST ROCK VOCAL PERFORMANCES OF ALL TIME. DARING TO STEP UP TO COVER IT, REQUIRES NUTS. IT ALSO REQUIRES ADVANCED PHYSICAL TRAINING OF THE VOICE TO SCREAM THESE HIGH NOTES. THE HIGH NOTES ARE REFERRED TO AS "FLAGEOLET", WHICH TRANSLATES TO "A SMALL FLUTE ". WELL, THERE IS NOTHING SMALL ABOUT THIS SOUND WHEN EXECUTED BY THE HUMAN VOICE AT EXTREME SOUND PRESSURE LEVELS, BUT THE FREQUENCIES ARE SIMILAR. THE GORGEOUS AND ARTY VIDEOGRAPHY WAS CRAFTED BY THE BRILLIANT KILIII YUYAN. THIS IS TRULY OUR WORK OF ART TOGETHER. THANKS, KILIII YUYAN I WANTED TO CHOOSE A SONG THAT IS SCARY FOR OCTOBER, THIS IS MY MOST SCARY OPTION. THE TVS VOCAL TRAINING PROGRAM, "THE FOUR PILLARS OF SINGING" HAS A WORKOUT IN IT TITLED, "CRY VOCAL MODE & EXTREME SCREAM TRAINING" WHICH WILL TRAIN YOUR VOICE TO BE ABLE TO SCREAM SUPER HIGH NOTES LIKE THIS. WWW.THEVOCALISTSTUDIO.COM ANYWAY, ENJOY! WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SCARY SONG?
  5. Here is my song, "Lost Souls Are Misplaced" MAYBE SOME OF YOU CAN IDENTIFY WITH THIS HOOK GIVEN OUR WORLD THESE DAYS. HAS SOME KILLER SCREAMS IN IT... ANYWAY, ENJOY. MAKE A POST AND SHARE VIDEOS OR AUDIO OF YOUR SONGS! COACH ROBERT
  6. Hi When rob halford hits an a4 it sounds like head voice in the chorus to heading out to the highway. Is it head voice? And how do you get that sound?
  7. 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
  8. So I just saw this video It's about the maximum resonance point which is the note range in which your voice sounds the most relaxed, confident and likeable. In order to find which notes are my maximum resonance point I'm supposed to figure out why my comfortable note range is. This sounds self explanotory but I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. Finding my deepest comfortable note is easy, but the highest is not. I'm not good at bridging so I have a comfortable note range right before I switch from chest to head voice and then a few notes after having bridged, speaking in the higher voice is comfortable again for a few notes. So I'm not sure if my comfortable range is up to the note where I have to bridge or up to my highest comfortable head note. I'd really appreaciate all yours insight into this topic
  9. Hello fellow singers! I've taken on this classic for my latest: If you enjoy, please share, like, and subscribe! Thank you.
  10. Is "mixed voice" closer to something like A or B. A: A soft, speech-like yell. Today I felt I was shouting in my lesson and my teacher said that was my mix. I don't mean shouting as in yelling and forcing as if someone was stabbing you, but to get someone's attention across the street or at a baseball game. B: Pretty much a connected head voice sound but with a slightly raised larynx than opera. In other words just making the head voice sound chestier. So it will feel like I am singing in pure head voice with but just with a speech-like larynx or twang? Is mix literally singing in chest and head at the same time, or singing in head voice with twang so it sounds powerful and full and indistinguishable from chest voice? I would like replies from singers who are not just starting out but have experience and can actually sing in a balanced 'mix'. Thanks
  11. 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!

  14. https://vocaroo.com/19hOp3YHxi9C here is my recording of Versace on the floor (chorus), and the bland mixed voice that I'm talking about starts from the lyrics "door, oooh I love that dress" till "anymore". I can transition seamlessly through my pasaggio but when I sing with it, I can't bring my chest voice even just a little starting from a#4 and above, example is the "Turn down the lights" is my chest voice and the close the "DOOR" sounds like my chest voice get left behind, I can't bring it up and dunno what can I do here. Any advice and also solutions to my particular problem. TYIA
  15. As I stated in my other post, I've found my head voice, or some kind of voice that makes me sing higher and with more power than I was able to do before. However, after G#4, I hit a sort of wall. I can "sing" up to a C5, but it sounds weak at best and not tonally good at all. I can sing maybe up to an A#4 with some control when doing exercises, but that does not translate into songs at all. The best I can manage to do in a song is A4, but it is not a reliable note at all, and is pretty much hit or miss. What I'm trying to ask, is if I can even touch these notes, does that mean that I can develop them enough to make them practical parts of my range? I really want to be able to sing up to at least tenor high C and make it sound good.
  16. So, I am a rather young baritone/bass (depends who you ask) and I'm just trying to sound better singing my favorite songs. However, I don't really have the range to sing most of them, and I want to fix that lol. I feel like I have 3 modes that I can sing in, but 1 of them is unusable, and that happens to be the one in the range that I'm looking to use. I'll start with range, my comfy chest voice on a normal day is around D2 - D4 and I can occasionally get that pesky E4 on good days. My head voice on a good day can get up to F5 and can be taken down to around C4 ish. Now, the fun thing is I have a middle thing that sounds a lot like falsetto but weaker, and it covers from around F4-D5. Now, this middle thing would be incredibly useful if it was strong, but like I said it's lighter than a falsetto currently. I think this is some form of mixed voice that I'm just not putting the right finesse into. Does anyone have some exercises or tips that I could try to get that mode of my voice to sound more full so I could use it in songs? As it is currently, I have no clue how to train that, and neither does my vocal coach. Thanks in advance for any help. :)
  17. Hey guys, so I've come to bit of a dilemma recently. My private vocal coach whom I've seen for almost ten years now always suggested to breathe through the nose. When I studied clasiccal/opera in college I was told to breathe through the mouth. Went to my private voice teacher with this topic and he said that mouth-breath is an old pedagogical school of thought, and breathe through nose is the proper way. What I was told by college professor: Breathe through mouth because it raises the soft palate and you can prepare your mouth/throat for the onset of the coming phrase. What I was told by my private vocal coach: Breathe through nose because through the mouth dehydrates the vocal cords at a faster rate and you with proper technique you'll have the raised soft-palate/prepared throat without needing to open my mouth. Conflicting articles: Nose: https://www.ceenta.com/news-blog/sing-strongly-with-nasal-breathing Mouth: https://www.oxfordsinginglessons.co.uk/breathing-for-singers-is-different-from-normal-breathing/ Which is the proper way? I admit I do feel the mouth breath sets my vocal mechanism up for the onset of the coming note a little better than nose-breath but mouth breathing does dry out the chords and when I have a four hour gig I can't really afford to do that.
  18. why is it easy to sing whistle notes in the morning than in evening
  19. Hey Guys, i am really struggling to make progress with my high screams. I bought Ken Tamplins course a while back and studied and praticed to it alot, my singing doesn't have much to do with his though, because it never really worked out for me. The head voice part just lacked alot of information. I can't sing aaah or aeh in head voice. Above around d5 it just cracks at it feels really bad. I am doing pretty good with all the other vowels, the female soprano voice works well etc. its just that i feel like i can't even make my headvoice stronger because i can't open it up. I can go higher with an open vowel, but i have to use a mix or have to use insanly high effort in comparison to the other vowels to get higher. I really want to learn to sing better in head voice, guys like Chris Cornell, Rob Halford, Ian Gillan and many more are my inspiration. I can get a pretty powerfull sound on the highs but it is much too exhausting, because i think i am pulling my middle voice that high. It doesnt have the same soundquality aswell. Jens Viktor Johannson is amazing with these screams for example.
  20. Our cover of this awesome song, we are doing the whole Mob Rules, a song/week. Coming up this weekend is the title song Mob Rules!
  21. Very fun song that has alternating characters, from the musical Jekyll and Hyde: Alternating head voice and chest voice with more compression to get the different vibes. Cheers!
