How did you hear about TMV World?

  1. I heard this on the radio and thought I should post it here! I really enjoyed them! Both talks touch on related aspects of vocal training, vocal science, and vocal "ideology."

  3. Hey guys, I'm new to the site. I am really worried about my vocal health. I have just graduated uni after years of specialising in vocals and two months ago I began my first proper singing contract in a different country. Because of the change in climate I got ill and ended up with laryngitis. Unfortunately I still had to sing and do shows with laryngitis, however, I had to almost scream to get a sound out. My voice kept getting worse and the laryngitis developed into pharyngitis and guess what... I still had to sing every night. No voice rest for me It has now been two months an
  4. Okay, so to get started i believe i've had articulation problems my whole life, I couldn't speak fast at all, and my voice was somewhat hoarse. Often, people would ask me to repeat myself as my voice wasn't clear. I found that when I went on a ginger/lemon fast( for about 4 days), that my voice was ever so smooth! I could articulate my words perfectly, and speaking was no longer a problem. My singing voice got way better too. I've been trying to replicate this feeling by fasting, drinking lots of water... etc, and I can't seem to get the same effect. I thi
  5. Hello! When I was around 12, I was pushing my voice quite hard. I had choir, vocal lesson, and practiced as much as I possibly could. I was singing classical and Broadway songs ( "Per la gloria d'adorarvi" or "Who will buy" as a couple examples). I had the odd fascination of "how high of notes can I hit?" I don't believe I was ever overly reckless, but Lo and behold, my voice started feeling strained and tight, and I had to work harder and harder to produce sound. Eventually, there was no sound with the exception of a breathy whisper. After a few weeks of this, I went to have my voi
  6. Hi everyone, new member here. I am a female singer who has been diagnosed with a severe underbite and TMJ with neck stiffness. This diagnosis has been pretty devastating to my confidence, given that I am not a trained singer and have only been doing this for about 3 years (I'm 20). I have recorded quite a bit of music, mostly originals in the style of punk rock, and I can't help but think that my severe underbite coupled with the loud style of singing that I have grown accustomed to is to blame for my TMJ. At the moment, I am seeking treatment to correct my bite via jaw surgery, but it will no
  7. Hello, I am having a serious and rather uncommon vocal issue and I was wondering if someone could shed some light on the situation. In early May of this year, I was very, very careless with my voice. I had always sung through basically blunt force trauma, but my voice had always rebounded- except this time, it didn't. For months I had pain after speaking , loss of range and projection problems. Finally, I was diagnosed with a hemorrhage of the false vocal folds. I was told it wasn't permanent, and put on modified, not total, vocal rest. From what I understand, true vocal fold he

  11. Hey all you coaches! I'm very curious as a possible vocal coach in the making, just what your coaching experience looks like these days. These questions assume a student who is dedicated to the home training you prescribe. Thanks for sharing!
  12. Hello everyone I apologize in advance if this question has been asked already. In April of this year I woke up with a sore throat. Later that day, I realized I could no longer sing. I could speak just fine, but I couldn't even form a note. I had an ENT appt a week later which confirmed, with taking a look down my throat, that I had LPR. I was given omeperazole. A month later I had another ENT appt, and another look down my throat. The doc said my vocal cords still look swollen. He now says it can be a mixture of LPR and allergies. I am no longer on the omeperazole because I
  13. Step 1. · Identify the vocal problem itself in order to get your voice back. Perhaps, you have noticed that your voice (Speaking and/or singing) is not working in the same capacity as it once was. Obviously you are puzzled and concerned. At this point, you have to come to terms that something is not the same and begin to accept that fact. Step 2. · Identify the cause of such occurrence. Please try to analyze what could have caused your voice problem in the f
  14. I just got Invisalign braces. So now I have a bit of lisp when I talk, and thus, also when I sing. It's mostly only with "s" type sounds - otherwise I sound pretty normal. But when I say/sing anything with an "s" I sound like I have quite a speech impediment. They're Invisalign, which means I can take them out when I eat and brush and such. I figure when I'm playing live gigs I'll take them out since it wouldn't be for that long. But when I'm just practicing singing, or recording, I can't just leave them out for several hours. And I'd still like to be able to talk normally. Do
  15. Three and half years ago I decided I wanted to have a deeper voice. I did some research and found an article that suggested saying your ABC's in a deeper voice everyday until your voice became that pitch. THIS WAS A HUGE MISTAKE. It has massively hurt my communication skills and left me sounding very unnatural and unpleasant . After years of trying to correct it by speaking my way back to my naturally voice, going through phases of pain and scratchiness, I think it's as good as it can be without some help from people who know what their doing. I'm coming to this great community for advice on h
  16. Vocal Injury: The pain could be inevitable, but the suffering should be optional. Like many of my other clients, Karen lived with her voice disorder for almost two decades. She had seen many medical professionals, alternative doctors, and nevertheless, speech therapists. To all of them, she had been complaining about the pain in her throat, her neck and her shoulder, evidently associated with that. Practically all of them told her that it is all in her head. Only one of the specialists was able to diagnose her with muscle tension dysphonia (MTD), but like everybody else, he was not ab
  17. Hi all, This is my first post in this board so I hope it will go ok. My main problem is with speaking. I'm a computer programmer so I don't talk that much during the day, but when I do sometimes it becomes realy difficult and I have to say every sentence twice or three times because people keep asking me "What?", so that's basically why I'm posting this here, in hope someone may enlighten me. My problem is with speaking, not singing. As far as singing - after a proper warm up, I can sing songs like "Radio Ga Ga" by Queen or "Man In The Mirror" by Michael Jackson almost easily, and they are
  18. Hi guys, I recently did a virtual job interview to record myself answering questions. That's when I realized my speaking voice is extremely carrying tension and heavy, when I zoom in I can see veins popping out of my neck. I cannot speak for 1 hour continuously without my throat feeling tired and worn out even turning breathy. I have tried many things; sirens, scales, slides, humming, tongue trills, straws, etc. Nothing seems to work because when speaking that bad throaty habit comes back, what should I do? I am considering going to a speech therapist.
  19. It sounds completely absurd, doesn’t it? Believe it or not, in some cases, it is completely true. At first, when the person gets diagnosed with any kind ofvoice problems, they become devastated, then frustrated; after that, depressed and then, believe it or not, they get used to it and, in some cases, they truly embrace it. They have no other choice, you may exclaim! Yes, partially you are right, my reader. They have to embrace it and get into balance to be able to deal with their voice issues accordingly and promptly. However, a lot of people, after conducting a short search, give up on gett
  20. I have been doing research on vocal health since I wanna make sure danger is always at bay and i often hear ppl saying "singing causes me throat pain" etc... btw I wanna know where is "throat pain" felt exactly for wrong technique? is it like the place where you feel sore when you have a cold and get sore throat or is it somewhere down in the throat box where you feel the glottal attack?
  21. If you can, you will be able to use your voice, by design, and think on a parallel track and in synchronicity with your speaking or singing. Nevertheless, this is an invaluable skill to have. The fact is that the majority of people do not possess that skill, as they are simply out-of-balance and out of alignment. Some of them think long and hard before producing the speaking or singing sounds and thus, evidently, “missing the boat”. The others, opposite; they speak and sing without boarders and think, if at all, after the fact. It is especially crucial for those who have been undergoing a non-
  22. Attention all Speakers and Singers! If you have noticed that your speaking or singing voice is not performing as per usual and rather sounds lower and somewhat hoarse, PLEASE STOP!!! If you continue speaking in your usual manor and disregard the fact that your voice is feeling scratchy and your throat is feeling itchy, you might lose your voice completely and for some time ahead. Singers: please do not continue singing if you have noticed that it is much harder now to reach your high notes, which normally would not be a problem and if you have to push and pull your voice out of your inflamed,
  23. Indeed, should you give up, or rather do something, which will (at least) improve the quality of your life?What are those untreatable, nasty voice disorders?It definitely is vocal paralysis (paresis) or both vocal cords, the severe forms of spasmodic dysphonia, the severe forms of muscle tension dysphonia, scar tissue on the vocal cords, damaged vocal box and it’s anatomy due to/or during the surgical procedure and many more others . Once, not too long ago, in my office/studio walked in a middle-aged, pretty handsome Asian man with his wife. It was very sad to try to speak with the man, as the
  24. The Non-Surgicalvoice repair course is a very serious endeavor for both the voice sufferer and the voice repair specialist.   Needless to say, the voice repair clients come usually upset, frustrated and in a majority of cases, somewhat depressed.  Quite a few of them literally lost they’re speaking and singing careers, or just simply their jobs.  So they do have a very good reason to be upset, and yes, depressed.   However, obviously those emotions are not helping the cause. So I have to be a very good psychologist, and in some cases, even a psych
  25. After all the learning and technique the most difficult thing for most singers and the most important, is to get yourself the hell out of the way. The voice has a mind and heart of it's own. You will have to feed it, water it ,teach it and raise it like a child. Provided you've done that well now it is time to leave it be. I assure you, your voice does not want an overbaring mother or father hanging over it , neither following it around on it's dates. Once it's all grown up it needs to hanky panky without being disturbed and it will produce many wonderful children of it's own. Your job is the
