  1. Hello guys. I have always wanted to improve my voice for singing. I play guitar often and when I start singing my friends all run away xD. I have been training my voice for a long time. The problem is I don't have the earing and cannot fall onto notes. I recently came across a program which is promising that it will help for improving the voice and before buying it I wanted to ask if anyone has tried it and if yes does it help? The program is in the following link. https://thevocaliststudio.com/udemy-singing-course/ Thanks in advance.
  2. Hello I am having real trouble finding my falsetto, I can't make that effortless sound, it is always strained. I was always able to make a voice that I thought was falsetto, but I got to the conclusion that is flageolet instead. I got really used to it and it is relaxed, and really sounds like falsetto, but I think it isn't falsetto mainly because: - It isn't connected to chest voice. I know sometimes it's difficult to connect head and chest voice, but this is extremely disconnected, it is a different world. - I am able to transition smoothly from whistle to this flageolet. Not trying hard at all, just lowering the pitch from whistle, I end up in this voice. Demo: https://instaud.io/3rzk So, an example of this strained 'falsetto', in a moment with the voice quite tired (so that the strain is noticeable): https://instaud.io/3rzm Same song, in flageolet (I know it sounds a lot like a falsetto):https://instaud.io/3rzd An example of a song, in falsetto, that sounded better, in a moment my voice wasn't that tired: https://instaud.io/3rzf (Yes, I like Ed Sheeran XD). This is as close to a relaxed falsetto that I can get. So, any advice on how to find that relaxed falsetto? Maybe I am still unable to do it because I have those muscles untrained? I've tried yawning, making the sound of an owl, or Mickey Mouse's voice... Everything is strained. Any advice, or exercise? Thank you in advance Whistle to flageolet.mp3 Strained falsetto.mp3 Flageolet.mp3
  3. Hi. I seem to have a problem. I imagine a pitch in my head before I sing it. But the thing is, while I'm singing it, it sounds normal, but when played back, I hear a constant microtonal flat. A friend told me that it might be because my pitch expectations are warping my perception of what is actually coming out of my mouth. In other words, it seems that I'm hearing the expected/imagined pitch more than the actual one. Another friend told me that the "formant/timbre" of my voice is higher in my head than what is actually heard outside. My voice literally sounds deeper and lower-pitched in a recording. The higher formant might make the illusion of a slightly higher pitch than what is actually heard. Sometimes, if I'm extremely concentrated on pitch, it feels like I can hear two different pitches when I sing, but I'm sure one is in my mind and the other one is real. Another issue I have is that my vocal muscles are inseparably linked to my pitch imagination. Sometimes, I am aware that I'm singing slightly flat, so I try to sing a note slightly higher. The issue with that is that I cannot do that without imagining a slightly sharp note and it gets disorienting. For instance, if I were to imagine a B, my vocal muscles would lock in to a slightly flat B. I could adjust my vocal muscles to an accurate B, but my mind will automatically imagine a slightly sharp B. My friend who is vocalist told me that it's because I learned pieces by singing along to pre-existing recordings and that it's natural to unconsciously sing a tiny bit flat when doing so as not to overshadow the vocals in the reference recording. That would basically mean that this inseparable inaccurate link between vocal muscle contraction and pitch imagination is mainly due to muscle memory and I have no idea how to undo that. I know I'm not tone deaf because I can clearly distinguish between notes, even on the microtonal level, on recordings. I can also hear microtonal sharps and flats when others are singing. I even have pretty good relative pitch. But it seems that it goes away when I'm singing in real time thanks to this psychoacoustic/psychosomatoacoustic (if such a word exists) issue. Any tips for this frustrated fellow? (Edit: I don't seem to have this problem when singing falsetto or within my comfort range.)
  4. As tenors what pitch do you like to use for the recitation tone (used in eg church music or other kinds of music)?
  5. 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
  6. What are some techniques that will help a student learn how to use good breath support?
  7. My voice naturally has a little bit of rasp after singing for years but for the most part my voice is pretty clean. I'd love some tips to get more grit especially on the top notes!!
  8. I am a person who dont easily understand how other People experience stuff so please be very concrete with me. Some talk about passagio (bridge in English?). I see different bridges in my voice. I need help with what the correct terminology would be. I have my speaking voice around D#3/E3. When I go lower to Bb2 I go to my lower voice (bellow speaking voice). There is a bridge between those. If I go higher to G3 I go above the speaking voice. There is a bridge between those. If I go even higher to D4 there is Another bridge. Then at F#4 there is another bridge. The at G#4 there is yet another bridge. What is the correct vocal terminology for this?
  9. I talked with a director of a Gregorian schola who said that they would even sing as low as A2 (must be great for the baritones but not for me). I want to sing with them since this is music I like a lot. According to one vocal teacher, with whom I agree, the best key for Silent night, when I sing, is C. That high F4 works ok but I shouldn't sing low notes. Did/do the great tenors have any problems with A2? Gregorian chant seems kind of too low for me if A2 is a must. I would even choose higher keys then what is found in hymnals. I disslike singing low notes. When a teacher tells you that your voice has a tenor quality what does it mean? And is tenor voices rare since most men sing too low at sing-alongs? I had one audition with the schola director and she made me sing the low A2 but it was uncomfortable. I dont see any good reasons why we should sing below C3. What are your practical advice(s)?
  10. I'm teaching a few voice lessons in a undergraduate music education class and am working with a female student who is breathy and lacks confidence in her singing. What exercises or tips do you have to improve her confidence and help with breathiness? She plays french horn and has good breath support but doesn't think she is a good singer.
  11. Hello all! I am new at teaching voice lessons, and I was wondering if anyone could offer advice. How do you help a female voice use their breath to produce a more consistent sound, especially in their higher range?
  12. What are some good ways and/or vocalizes to get your students to really use their breath to get a better sound throughout the rehearsal? Does movement while singing work? If so, what are some other ways to help with a student not getting a full sound?
  13. 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.
  14. What song have you been addicted to lately? For me, it's this song: Another Life by D'angelo. Came out officially 7 months ago. I've been listening to it ever since, and it's almost been an everyday thing. Even made the 3rd chorus my ringtone, and I end up singing along every time my phone rings What about everyone else? What song have you been listening to a lot lately?
  15. I remember seeing posts like these for years. Now, I finally get it somewhat. What are some good ways of accomplishing this?
  16. I know that classifying a voice type isn’t something I should focus on but I’m just curious about what I would be labeled as. My speaking range is from G2/Ab2-D3/E3 (this is just when I speak, I tend to reach G2 when I’m tired or sick) I am untrained and have never taken a singing class, but the highest my chest voice can push if I try is D4 and maybe F4. I don’t try and use head or falsetto since I don’t want to damage my chords since I’m not a trained singer but I feel in mixed and in head voice I could reach higher notes. Again, I know voice classification shouldn’t matter and that everyone has their own unique voice but I am curious what I would be labeled. Btw I’m new on this forum and I wasn’t sure where to post this.
  17. I think lots of people here might have heard somebody say that a voice gave them chills. What is it about a voice that can trigger this kind of response in somebody's body? This question could also even be extended to an emotional response period.
  18. Which vocal course is best? (I want sing mainly rock - from art rock, blues rock, swing to heavy metal but too can sing most of music genre) I hear (mostly) good opinions about: Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy and course '' How To Sing Better Than Anyone Else '', Kevin Richards (Rpm Vocal Studio) and course '' Breaking The Chains '' ''Superior Singing Method'' of Aaron Anastasi And '' Singing Success 360'' of Brett Manning What do you think about these courses and which is best and help me 'increase' my voice? - Lyssie

  20. 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?
  21. I've been singing for a few years, but only with the chord progression. When the chord strikes, I sing with the chord notes, passing tones, or notes that are omitted from the chord. This is the first time I will be singing along with a bassline. Is it possible to sing along with the bassline, but use different notes? For example, the F chord is playing FACE, the bass is playing it's melody with notes from the chord or some tension notes etc... Can I sing along with the bassline, but use different notes from the chord? Or is it vital that the voice and bass play the same notes at the same time when the melody is the same?
  22. Hi there, Why does this spectrogram of me singing a scale show more than one frequency at the same time?
  23. I've been singing Swedish traditional music with a vocal ensemble this spring. I sounded good in the ensemble, I think. The leader (the teacher) was happy with my singing. At home when checking with a tuning app (on cellphone) I could not sing the correct intervals. Eg. I was supposee to sing G-E but would hit Eb instead of E. After some practice and testing I hit E. Is ensemble singing easier? What is going on?
  24. What is the typical range of an untrained male singer? I have heard from a teacher that everything under C can be a bit low for some men. This song has a range that might be big for an untrained singer:http://www.spelapiano.org/vem-kan-segla-forutan-vind.html If a typical untrained male were to sing it what would be the best key? And what key would be best if a woman would sing a long as well? I wanted to perform this tune with people who might join in and sing with me when I'm accompanying them on the piano or accordion. It be nice if you experts could give me some advice. Even if the key were wrong for them it might be possible that they themselve would just join in anyway without realising how bad it sounds, right?
