  1. Hello, fellow performers, fans and students! I've launched a video series for the solo singing guitarist, both professional and hobbyist, who'd like to know how another soloist goes about his work in rehearsal. The series takes the viewer through the determinations I make for each song I include in my repetoire. I'll cover topics such as choice of key, feel, meaning, vocal delivery, rehearsal and more.

  2. Hey everyone So I’m currently trying to find out how one could make the journey of aspiring singers a lot easier... Which is why I have two simple questions: 1. As a beginner, what are the 2 biggest issues you’re dealing with? 2. Regarding your singing voice, what would you wish for more than anything else? Thanks so much in advance - looking forward to reading your answers!
  3. 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?
  4. How do you find ways to encourage instrumentalists to feel comfortable answering questions related to singing? Examples like: How to chose repertoire for a beginning singer or what kind of vocal inefficiency is there? (Assuming they do not have much experience singing themselves) I have found that it is hard for me to get them to join the conversation during lessons in our pedagogy class. I don't want them to feel like I am calling them out, but I also really want more participation from them in general. What do you all suggest I do?
  5. I have recently begun teaching vocal lessons to a college student whose main instrument is not her voice. Her air support is strong in both her chest voice and head voice, but she is struggling to transition between the two. The transition is extremely abrupt and causes her to lose confidence in herself. What vocal workouts and exercises may be helpful when working on her mixed voice and transitions?
  6. Hello, Im currently a student and i love singing alot, but i couldnt afford a vocal class and im facing this problem with my voice, and i dont know what is this or why it happen. is my voice broken??? https://soundcloud.com/nicole-chang-959104894/whats-this-weird-sound i sing with my head voice at the beginning, it starts at F3 and my head voice it very weak, then i tried changing from chest voice to head voice, it has this really weird sound. anyone can tell me why this happen? and how can i fix this? pleaseeeeeee
  7. Hi there! So I’m very new to singing, but I’m wanting to try and take a leap of faith, and audition for a local musical. I’m having a lot of trouble picking the right song though. Since I’m a beginner, I really don’t know where my vocal range is either. I’m able to sing along with most pop songs, though, and am decent at matching pitch. The part that I’m going for is a tenor E-G# (and I have absolutely no idea what that means other than tenors are generally the higher men’s octave). I’m also nervous because I’m a transgender guy with a voice that hasn’t dropped yet, and that’s the highes

  9. I am working with a new voice student. She has been a piccolo and flute 8+ years. I am trying to find some effective warm-ups for her. She is able to match pitch and has more confidence singing in her lower range. She has been recently singing with a very pressed sound and is very tense when beginning warm-ups. Trying to find warm-ups to help combat these things!
  10. This is by far the best exercise I've taught to help students overcome choking. I've had my share of students who deal with Muscle Tension Dysphonia. This is when they not only choke off on higher notes, they may not have higher notes at all (including head voice or access to their upper chest range), and often it's present in their speaking voice too. I often recommend first and foremost that they see an ENT to make sure there's no medical issues holding them back. Then, after working through many singing exercises meant to open up the throat and relax the glottis, I recommend a speech t
  11. I just had a vocal lesson before, and this kinda drove me nuts, because I'm sure I'm right, but so was she ("I'll bet you money on it"), so I just needed to confirmation that I am right: Tenors read the treble clef, but sound an octave lower, yes? The highest range for a classical bass or baritone would be around F# or G, and you would write that 2 1/2 or 3 lines above bass clef, which is the same as the second line of treble clef. If we're singing, say, a Schubert baritone piece, the G written above the Treble clef will sound an octave lower. Pavarotti hitting his high C w
  12. Really would like to get some helpful criticism on my first song I have on the radio in order to improve my vocal performance. The song is "Love Like You" All the songs on Early Mornings, Late Nights, and Long Roads were written and composed by me and were produced by Joel Kazmi--who’s worked with artists like The Tea Party, Rush, N’sync, Sum 41, and Anne Murray. If you don't want to listen that is absolutely cool and if you can recommend some new music or mention any great shows you've seen lately, that would be great. Cheers! edit by moderator: link removed
  13. I'd appreciate hearing some of youz guys's perspectives on Paul Rogers comments in this interview. I'm sure everyone would agree with his comments about "warming up" however, he makes an interesting comment about "his range," and then still manages to really avoid answering the question. Personally, I'm convinced he simply doesn't know the answer yet, he does offer the good warm up advice. The actual question is: "why do some singers lose their upper range as they age, and some don't?" -That's point #1, point #2 is, what about the interesting answer he gives regarding "feeling the
  14. Hi guys! I just want to ask a question. In this video, what technique does the vocalist (Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco) use at around 1:27 - 1:34 mark of the video? is he really just using a stronger falsetto or a very high mixed voice? Please help me.Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XwBBVPeWfUThanks!!
  15. Hi! I'm new here so I'm sorry if I've done anything wrong. Either way, I just did a vocal range thing, and I went from C3 to a C6, but I managed to come up to E6+ but my voice got very squeaky. Many people have commented that I sing very high, and I really don't know what voice type I have. I have some trouble with singing very low, considering that my normal talking voice is low, but when singing high notes I don't have any problem at all, afterall, I prefer to do that. I'd like to do whistle tones, but I think it's better that I know what voice type I have before I do so so I won't
  16. Hi TMV, Today I had to upload a few videos for an audition. Basically I sang for a few hours to get the takes just right, and it was more singing than I've been doing lately. Some of it was in the upper parts of my range. Long story short, after finishing everything, I tried hitting my upper notes a few minutes ago and I couldn't do it, I didn't have control over it, and it sounded really raspy, and not in a controlled way. I sound fine while speaking and I can sing lower down, and in the middle of my voice. There is no pain, and aside from the rough sound in the upper notes, there's no hoarse
  17. i have searched a lot to get vocal scales to practice but im not so sure about it so would u please suggest me some samples of these scales scales i need are double octave scale and 3 octave scale i would also like what a long scale i would like to get some samples so than i can play and practice thank you
  18. How do you go about "solfeging a song". My music teacher suggested I solfege Home by Phillip Phillips in the key of C. I know it starts off on a high C..making it do? I need help because I am fairly new to this. Please help.
  19. i wanted to ask how you folk feel any anxieties around being physically present on stage moving and dancing in front of an audience? My second hobby for the last few years has been dancing (primarily swing and blues), so I'm considering blogging some advice taking what I've learnt to help people remove any anxieties they might have around looking awkward in their movements on stage. I'd rather not sink time in to writing unwanted advice, so if you have any feedback around whether you've had problems of this type then that would be super useful The first post I'm planning out is around what t
  20. Song selection is sometimes the most important factor in an audition preparation. What type of song you pick depends entirely on what you audition for. Here is what to consider. Musical: Take time to get to know the show. Choose who you want to be and pick a difficult song from another show by a similar character. For instance, if you want to be Marian in Music Man, find a piece similar to her hardest solo, “My White Knight.” Several aspects of the song are difficult, but focus on singing something in the same vocal range and style. Opera: Whether you audition for the chorus or as a soloist ma
  21. (Blues, Jazz singer Cheryl Hodge - author, is currently nominated for BEST BLUES SONG, 2011, at the Hollywood Music In Media Awards) People are always asking me about what my secrets have been for getting ahead in the music biz. It's almost like they think there is some magic answer that will help them move up the ladder. Well, in a funny way, maybe there is one. But you might not like the answer. There are basically three rules that I live by and have for 30 years. In order to succeed in the music biz (the simple answer), you need three basic ingredients. In time you will fi
