  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. Click here for the first episode: Episode 1 on Vimeo Episode 1 on YouTube In music & mirth, Richie Kaye Richie Kaye Website BLAST-OFF!
  2. www.vocalizing.com By Karen Oleson and Timothy Strong The genesis for this article comes from a workshop I was asked to present for a local chapter of NATS (National Assoc. of Teachers of Singing). It is only in very recent history, that performance studies in vocal jazz have been offered in academic settings. Prior to this if one wished to be a jazz singer they learned by listening to, following and copying other singers and experimenting and performing at every opportunity. Now that jazz styles have been codified it is easier for modern educators to expose jazz singing to s
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. Hi all, I've always loved to sing, but over a month or so I've began lessons and been using the app "Vanido" to try and improve my intonation, which has always been my problem. As such, could I please have some feedback on my cover of Julio Iglesias' "Begin the Beguine," with particular attention to my pitch? Of course, comments on tone and everything else is very welcome too! The playback is a karaoke version from YouTube, and I added some reverb in GarageBand. Thanks so much for your help on my singing journey
  6. Hi to everyone! I've been reading this forum for a couple of years now and always found it very interesting and helpful in dealing with some of my own issues, so I thought I'd post this project that I've got going on. For a long time, I have suffered from vocal tension and inability to sing past D4 without pushing the "chest voice"/ overly-engaging the TA's basically. However, in the last year or so, I have experienced great relief after starting to do falsetto exercises suggested by Anthony Frisell in his manual "Training Baritone Voices". After reading many other sources later on, I hav
  7. Hi there, I am continuing from the "weird exercises", and the goal is to touch the more critical spots that gets in the way, instead of following the ideas of "its all mechanics" development that became the norm on the internet culture nowdays. I want to talk a bit about the subject of "power", and the problems that I often come accross. As whole I would define the problem like this: Power is a subjective perception that is on the listener side, you DON'T achieve it through a mechanical technique, you do it with music. And music in its turn is all about creating ex
  8. Please leave a comment below if u are interested in getting ur track mastered for only $5!
  9. Hello guys I am curious to know what singers have demonstrated vocal longevity without losing voice quality. Who are your favorite artists that consistently have sung well for at least 20 years? For me I must have to go with Celine Dion and Stevie Wonder. Please include clips of the proposed artist if possible.
  10. Hi, Looking to get suggestion about great vocal melody writers. It's difficult to specify what I mean by great vocal melody. But singing lines with great rhythm, catchy yet not predictable, instantly likable because of gripping dynamic, are mainly the qualities I think. So, I like stuff done by Ella Fitzgerald from the Cole Porter songbook and other songs too. L Armstrong of course. Elvis. I also like Iron Maiden, if you listen to this kind music. Bruce Dickinson's vocal lines are very engaging and dynamic. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions. I don't care about genre and language.
  11. Hello! I want to share with you my Official Cover of the song At Last. Is a song of Etta James which is one of my biggest influences in jazz singing. The song’s lyrics refer to the love of a young woman that’s finally fulfilled. This song encapsulates the youth spirit of 1960’s. First Official Release: November 15,1960 by Etta James.The song was originally written by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren for the musical film Orchestra Wives (1941), starring George Montgomery and Ann Rutherford.I Hope you enjoy it!Recorded - Produced & Mastered at Modern Music Studios Official Facebook Page: https:/
  12. Will be getting everything together to showcase the selection of this month's song shortly.
  13. Hey all, For those of you that are wondering what this about, check out the following link and please join us: It's about that time. It's been decided that, this month, we will run two challenges at once. Two separate challenge threads will be created. Everyone is greatly encouraged to participate in both of these. Even if you don't have time to mix two great tracks, try to get something done for each and post it in the corresponding challenge topics. Given the goal of these challenges is to get everybody really racking their musical brains and get everyone out of their comfort zone at one

  15. This is a completely different genre but wanted to share it with you since my friend Andrea (Rinquart) has just entered this community....so you can listen both to his and my voice at the same time! Hope you will enjoy it!!
  16. https://instagram.com/lowkeygroove/   instagram-@lowkeygroove   I've been singing for about a year now, but the past month i've been trying to get better.  What areas are good/bad and how can I improve?         Thank you
  17. Hello, I am a big fan of Amy Winehouse and her singing is so appealing to me and one day I wish I could sing like her. Can anyone tell me how she sings, things like her vocal placement, vibrato, volume, habits (good or bad), and any other techniques or characteristics that you may want to point out? She seems so effortless and smooth and I just don't get how to achieve that quality. I would appreciate just anything/everything anyone can tell me about her singing..! I've included some acoustic live singing of her below, please enjoy!        
  18. Good singers are often described as having a unique personal style, a special way of expressing a song. But in the larger picture of singing, let's talk about vocal styles in general. First off, you want to be clear on which style you sing the most. Pop, rock, jazz, country, blues, R&B, classical, folk, gospel, Broadway belting or perhaps a combination of one or more of these styles? I frequently encounter singers who think they're singing in a pop style but are actually singing in a classical style because of prior training. It can sound quite strange and disorienting to the listener to h
  19. So, You Want To Be A Singer? by Diva Joan Cartwright CHAPTER 6 - REPERTOIRE Having a list handy of all the songs you sing in alphabetical order with a column for the key in which you sing each song can be invaluable when you meet musicians. If you are that organized, then you can probably fill the bill as a singer. Keep adding to the list as time goes by, until you've filled up two sides of the page. Try to include the composer of each song. Example: 1. A CHILD IS BORN C Thad Jones 2. A FOGGY DAY G Gershwin 3. A NEW WAY OF SINGING THE BLUES F J. Ca
  20. (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
  21. Click the link and have a listen! Please 😄 I'm also trying to figure out a better mic for my voice. I felt like this mic sounded a bit too "dead". Any suggestions? Thanks for listening
  22. I attended a wonderful workshop yesterday, featuring jazz legend Sheila Jordan, and organized by TMV member and dedicated jazz singer/teacher Ellen Johnson. Now in her 80s, Sheila still tours and teaches with sharp mind and musicianship, and a very kind encouraging manner. Although sprinkled with anecdotes about Parker, Miles Davis and Coltrane, it really was a work session emphasizing respect for the music and the importance of doing one's homework: know your song's key, rhythm and beginning and ending before attending a jam. According to Sheila, the difference between a respected ja
