  1. How can you help teach a student to naturally let vibrato happen? For example if a student has been previously taught to sing with a mostly straight tone or reprimanded by people for singing with vibrato and doesn't know how to let it naturally happen, how do you teach that? Especially if it occasionally will come through in their lower register but they really struggle with it in the upper register?
  2. This is a recording from quite a few years ago. I figured that I since I keep commenting on other peoples singing I would give them a chance to pay me back. Good or Bad.
  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, genre and/or song recommendations are also greatly appreciated. Any and all feedback is welcome. Song Links: 1. Don't Know Why - Nora Jones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WERaHzmllfo"]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WERaHzmllfo 2.

  4. I came across a very interesting discussion about whether "athleticism" can give somebody a head start when training as a vocalist. The main idea was that the core abdominal strength needed for breath control could be ready developed. Although the question itself was too broadly phrased, imo, for the replies to be conducive to much of a consensus, it did provide a means by which people could describe and compare breath control systems. (The discussion was on reddit). I think that "athleticism" is too broad a qualification. A weightlifter, for example, has to brace his abs, and even wear a belt. It seems clear to me that breathing technique in such a sport would not carry over to singing. However, people involved in other athletic activities also claimed that the breathing techniques involved may actually have hindered, not helped them, with breath support in singing. Some people even seemed to be suggesting that you lose the six pack, if you have one, and start rocking that potbelly! I see a lot of crossover between breathing for running and breathing for singing. Both involve filling the lungs from bottom to top. Both require the abs to make room for the descent of the diaphragm. Both involve efficient exhalation phase, so as not to recycle used air.. Both work the abs. The main difference I see is in the movement of the rib cage. With running, the movement of the rib cage is very active and preemptive. With singing, the rib cage moves more in response to the air pressure in the lungs, so it always applying light pressure on the lungs. (With running, the rib cage is actively pulling the lungs out in the inhalation phase, and bearing down considerably during the exhalation phase. With singing the rib cage is more or less "tracking" the lung expansion). That's my own experience. But some of the descriptions I read about breathing for running, i found quite odd, and could account for why some people felt that the abdominal strength gained there was not applicable to singing..
  5. 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.
  6. For those who don't know. Freddie's birthday was 4 days ago. So I thought I'd do one of his songs (It's actually John's song but whatever) (Although a bit late). But here you go. Just to clarify, the harmonies are the original ones. I didn't have enough time to do 4x4 harmonies this time compared to other queen songs I've done. https://audiomack.com/song/diego-ktva/youre-my-best-friend
  7. It's been years since I last posted a cover her for review. Hope to receive feedback.
  8. Hello you guys! I am 17 years old from Honduras! Been singing for a few years. No really any formal training. So I have 3 covers in 3 different Genres. I have a lot more, but thought I'd show these recent ones. Feel free to critique as harshly as you want. You DON'T have to review them all. If you want to then that would be even better. Tell me what you think!
  9. Hi. I am really bored being Baritone. I am not sure i'm a Baritone or Not. But i have totally un-trained voice and i have also, fry voice problem by Acidic reflux. I have damaged vocal cords but still i can sing. I don't know i have to chance to become Lyric tenor? Or i am a tenor or baritone? When my voice health before, my vocal range: Full chest: E2 (Very weak and force low note) up to A4-B4 and with force alot C5 Mixed chest: I don't know this technique so i don't know. Falsetto: Max note G5 i only know (But screaming) (And my falsetto is airy and dramatic sounds like very Mickey mouse tone) Head voice: Very weak but max note C5 probably. Here is my some cover tests: This recording when my voice is health... (Old a little bit)

  11. Hi everyone, I've always loved to sing but I've always been shy to show it to the world. I had singing lessons in the past but once I started a university degree I stopped singing and focused on my degree. I am now stable in my job but this passion for singing has never gone away. Could you give me your feedback please? Thank you so much, this means the world to me. I have a youtube video singing a capella: And also some covers on SoundCloud:
  12. 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
  13. I don't know where to put my tongue while doing it. I'm relaxed, opened throat and try to force the less possible but my tongue continues to go forward and pushing against my teeth or inferior lip...What can I do? I haven't mastered this register but I know it's gonna cause me problems for talking in whistle register.
  14. Sup! Good stuff, we have now a group on Facebook messenger for live chat and exchanging audio samples on the fly. Join us here! https://m.me/join/AbaMTBP3g9tLhKss \m/
  15. Here is a topic I have always thought was interesting. Would love to hear people's input on this. Maybe @Pcastagner might have some interesting things to share here. Thoughts Phillip?...
  16. Are there any other apps like Perfect Pitch? I am a beginner with singing. This app has different songs you can practice pitch with. I just wish it had more songs on there. There are only a few selections. I am doing some vocal training. At this point, I can reach a note of C5 without a whole lot of strain, and as high as F5 with some push. I just need more work on my pitch. I am not as good at recognizing pitch as I need to be.
  17. Hello everyone! As I said in my introduction post, I started taking lessons not too long ago. Right now I can comfortably sing most Opeth stuff (yes, I'm one of those metalheads), but I'm not satisfied with my current G4 limit. I'm a big fan of other baritones who can go up to C or even D5, and I talked to my vocal coach about it and how right now it's impossible for me to go past that G without going full head and sound like a muppet. He answered "well, maybe those notes are not for you, you just have to deal with it. You can't change the range of your voice like you would a guitar, maybe you'll need to sing those songs a couple tones lower". I have to admit that it really disheartened me. I do a lot of reading and I've always been sure I could expand my range to a certain degree; of course I'm never going to be a tenor like James LaBrie, but I don't really care about that either. Let it be said that I'm still lacking in the technique department and that I was asking him if maybe, with the correct training, I could reach higher than I presently do. What do you guys think about all this? Of course you can't really tell without hearing my voice, I'm not asking for that. Just give me your 2 cents about the whole situation. Thank you!
  18. Hello Do I have a good or a bad voice? Because right now i am a singer in a rock/metal band. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BW8TvFZTVI
  19. Yeah I know that youtube comments are not the best way to get opinions but still as popular as youtube is if anyone sees a comment like this: Singing is mostly a talent you are born with. You can either sing or you can't sing. No amount of voice lessons or practice in the world is going to make you a good singer. It might discourage someone to actually get vocal lessons. Comments like this really agitate me but I did give a link from TMW and told this person I'd rather listen to someone like Robert than someone who hasn't a clue on how the voice works.
  20. Hello, I really want to improve my singing, I do not know what exactly to do though, other than singing in general. Please give me advice on what I might be doing wrong or bad. https://soundcloud.com/user-12387201/singing-photograph-ed-sheeran
  21. I have always loved singing however never tried to purse it because I never thought I would improve, but recently I decided to follow my dreams and started taking up vocal lessons. It been 3 months since I've started professionally learning how to sing and I've seen significant changes, nevertheless I am still not satisfied with my singing and would like to know how I can improve it.
  22. Roy Khan not only is my favorite singer but one of my major vocal influences and my inspiration getting into music/singing. His tonality is one of the best around and here is one of the reasons why I said that: I was wondering how hard would it be to get a tone like that? Rich,vibrant and beautiful. I'm not so much talking about sounding like him(although I would love to sound like him)but to get that same rich tone he has especially singing ballads like Abandoned?
  23. [Twitter] [Youtube] [Soundcloud] [Memberlist] Please visit memberlist for individual vocal samples, composer and producer samples, as well as art samples! I am currently looking for male vocalists and potentially one female, for a long term, dedicated music circle and collaboration group We operate on an opt in or out basis, as long as you stay up to date with what's going on. We would like people that are able to write their own lyrics, or contribute vocal melody and harmonies, or can double as a staff position (audio, video, art, composition.) To audition please send a sample of a ballad or classical song as well as a pop, rock, or r&b song, tell us a bit about yourself, why you want to join, and gear you use to record audio/video.

Must be willing to collab with other composers/producers on occasion. Currently also seeking mixers, tuner/timers, video editors, and artists as well. Please send auditions to our Twitter or Danielle#5039 on Discord! Here is a bit about us: Quintessence is an upcoming music circle, and music group. We will mainly create original songs and content, however we will occasionally do covers. Quintessence will release music that can focus one, multiple, or all of our vocalists. We strive to create music that is deeper that people can relate to, but also that takes us to another world, and revolves around fantasy. Genres we will focus on include pop, folk, classical, orchestral, ambient, new age, r&b, and experimental. We will also do a lot of crossovers within genres. We take inspiration from Wave, Akiko Shikata, Kokia, Kaoling, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Jojo, Epica, and more. We are seeking people that are creative, genuine, like to experiment, and don’t like to limit themselves. Members of Quintessence are expected to commit and be active, this is a permanent group, and you will be expected to meet tight deadlines, and take an active part in insuring our success. Inability to communicate and meet deadlines, will result in potential kick from the group. All members are expected to take part in the creative process as well, and grow as individuals. It will be mandatory for vocalists to adapt themselves and learn how to sing within various genres. For vocalists, they will need to be comfortable being on camera, majority of our videos and pictures will feature the vocalists, and other staff, themselves. Those chosen will be temporarily in a trial position, to see if they work well with the current members.

  24. Isnt it much easier to sing above your speaking range? I find that when I use support from the diaphragm when singing with power I feel like I am drawn higher. Some teachers, including mine, says that for higher notes it is important to think "down". I like this a lot. I really feel like support forces me up. When I hum a note with support i often end up on F#3 which is really my highest speaking pitch (if just talking normally). I use classical singing rather than pop singing. My power is above the speaking range. I feel like there is a mechanism in singing that forces my up to the higher notes.
