How did you hear about TMV World?

  1. Hi all i love as a producer to make music, If you send me a vocal (not a cover) then i will try to bring your vocal to the next level with music I have different genres,i can send you a demo if you like. this is music of me on Spotify. I do this for free, no charge,just for fun cheers,yan
  2. Here is my song, "Lord of Sadness" ENJOY! SHARE A LINK TO YOUR SINGING! This was a paid gig. The lyrics were provided to me and we then wrote the groove and produced the video. Super fun. As musicians, sometimes a good song speaks to you and reveals itself to you. It tells you what to do. The song has a "map" and an "instruction manual" that comes with it intuitively after years of singing and coaching songs. Among other things, this includes recognizing what the groove is. Where the accents are and what the characters of the story are doing and who they are. Singing is theater. And it is our job and privilege to tell a story as musicians. But it takes a LOT of practice to know how to do that. If you are interested in learning how to master your voice and own a song, contact us: www.TheVocalistStudio.com.
  3. Child In Time - Robert Lunte THIS SONG IS ICONIC. THE ORIGINAL WAS SUNG BY IAN GILLAN, OF DEEP PURPLE. IT IS UNQUESTIONABLY CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF THE GREATEST ROCK VOCAL PERFORMANCES OF ALL TIME. DARING TO STEP UP TO COVER IT, REQUIRES NUTS. IT ALSO REQUIRES ADVANCED PHYSICAL TRAINING OF THE VOICE TO SCREAM THESE HIGH NOTES. THE HIGH NOTES ARE REFERRED TO AS "FLAGEOLET", WHICH TRANSLATES TO "A SMALL FLUTE ". WELL, THERE IS NOTHING SMALL ABOUT THIS SOUND WHEN EXECUTED BY THE HUMAN VOICE AT EXTREME SOUND PRESSURE LEVELS, BUT THE FREQUENCIES ARE SIMILAR. THE GORGEOUS AND ARTY VIDEOGRAPHY WAS CRAFTED BY THE BRILLIANT KILIII YUYAN. THIS IS TRULY OUR WORK OF ART TOGETHER. THANKS, KILIII YUYAN I WANTED TO CHOOSE A SONG THAT IS SCARY FOR OCTOBER, THIS IS MY MOST SCARY OPTION. THE TVS VOCAL TRAINING PROGRAM, "THE FOUR PILLARS OF SINGING" HAS A WORKOUT IN IT TITLED, "CRY VOCAL MODE & EXTREME SCREAM TRAINING" WHICH WILL TRAIN YOUR VOICE TO BE ABLE TO SCREAM SUPER HIGH NOTES LIKE THIS. WWW.THEVOCALISTSTUDIO.COM ANYWAY, ENJOY! WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SCARY SONG?
  4. There’s nothing more intimidating than a blank piece of paper. Starting the process of writing a new song can take just as long as finishing it. So here’s seven tips to help you speed up your songwriting. 1. Work in a group, then alone Having a few people to bounce ideas around with helps the creative process get started. After you’ve got your song started, the democratic process is more likely to slow you down. If you’re writing songs as part of a band, it can be better to go and complete your parts individually once you’ve gotten the overall idea in place. 2. Drink alcohol, then coffee Research has shown that drinking alcohol boosts your creativity, but makes it hard to focus. Coffee, and other drinks containing caffeine, has the opposite effect. For your brainstorming session, loosen up with a few drinks. This works especially well if combined with the first tip, but be careful not to get carried away and turn it into a drinking session. Once you’ve sat down to start writing the ideas you have onto paper, fire up the kettle. 3. Give chance a chance After a long music career, you might find that all of your songs are starting to sound the same. There’s nothing wrong with having a recognisable sound, but you don’t want to get stale. Shake things up by writing different elements of songs onto pieces of paper, such as keys, lyrical themes, and so on. Place them into a hat and draw five at random. Force yourself to use these, no matter how badly they seem to go together. The results can be surprisingly good - and more importantly they help you to think outside of your usual boundaries. 4. Write somewhere different Creativity doesn’t exist in a void. If you want to be inspired, go for a long walk somewhere far away from your usual haunts. The change of scenery, fresh air and act of walking itself can be great for generating new ideas. If nothing else, it gives you a chance to let yourself relax. Stress is a major impediment to creativity. 5. Learn your music theory I don’t care how unappealing this seems. You might think that learning theory chokes your freedom or that it’s boring. However, if you don’t know what the rules around music are, it’s impossible to break them in a way which is both purposeful and well-executed. This applies no matter what genre you’re in. For example, my own personal foray into EDM was vastly improved when I started learning about cadence, a concept from choral music. 6. Steal from other songs Now let me just clarify something before we go any further. I am absolutely not telling you to copy somebody else’s song in it’s entirety and try to pass it off as your own. That’s not songwriting, and you’re unlikely to get away with it for very long. What you can do, is jot down interesting chord progressions, licks and lyrics. Playing around with these later, such as using inverted versions of the chords, trying it in a different key or modulating can lead to something brand new as the changes you’ve made will lead to a naturally different conclusion. 7. Use good notation software Writing music by hand can take quite a while, and you can’t always check to see if it sounds right straight away. By using notation software, such as Sibelius, or if you can’t read music, just programming the notes into a digital audio workstation (DAW) can transform your songwriting process completely, as it’s quite easy to quickly change sections of your music without having to rewrite every single note. Armed with these tricks, your songwriting skills will change practically overnight. It doesn’t matter if you apply all of them at once (although that isn’t entirely practical) or try them out a few at a time. Your own process is going to be a factor in this, so perhaps some of them won’t be entirely applicable. Don’t fret about this, just do the ones that feel ‘right’ to you.

  6. Hey guys, so I've come to bit of a dilemma recently. My private vocal coach whom I've seen for almost ten years now always suggested to breathe through the nose. When I studied clasiccal/opera in college I was told to breathe through the mouth. Went to my private voice teacher with this topic and he said that mouth-breath is an old pedagogical school of thought, and breathe through nose is the proper way. What I was told by college professor: Breathe through mouth because it raises the soft palate and you can prepare your mouth/throat for the onset of the coming phrase. What I was told by my private vocal coach: Breathe through nose because through the mouth dehydrates the vocal cords at a faster rate and you with proper technique you'll have the raised soft-palate/prepared throat without needing to open my mouth. Conflicting articles: Nose: https://www.ceenta.com/news-blog/sing-strongly-with-nasal-breathing Mouth: https://www.oxfordsinginglessons.co.uk/breathing-for-singers-is-different-from-normal-breathing/ Which is the proper way? I admit I do feel the mouth breath sets my vocal mechanism up for the onset of the coming note a little better than nose-breath but mouth breathing does dry out the chords and when I have a four hour gig I can't really afford to do that.
  7. 9 year old Ananya wrote and sang the song. Feedback please.
  8. I'm a teenage singer from Bangladesh. Please review my voice & singing style. Should I start a YouTube Channel? https://voca.ro/i8qSuOq7ST3
  9. 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?
  10. What is the best way to talk about the anatomy and physiology of the voice (to any age from elementary-adults) while keeping students engaged?
  11. 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?
  12. South African Artist Anna Wolf Wins Prestigious Grand Prize in 2019 Unsigned Only Music Competition Garth Hudson (The Band), Taj Mahal, Aimee Mann, O.A.R., Sanctus Real, Bow Wow, Boney James, Ruthie Foster, and Robert Smith (The Cure) Among Judges September 4, 2019 - -The Unsigned Only Music Competition is pleased to announce its 2019 winners. Unsigned Only is open to all artists who are unsigned to a major record label and gives artists exposure, recognition, and validation for their artistry. A total of $150,000 in cash and prizes is awarded to 38 winners, including an overall Grand Prize winner and a First and Second Place winner in each category. An additional group of Honorable Mentions were also selected. Over the years Unsigned Only has become an important source for discovering new talent. Since its inception in 2012, five Grand Prize winners have been signed to record labels. For the first time in Unsigned Only’s history, the 2019 Grand Prize is awarded to a South African artist, Anna Wolf, for the song “Believer.” Wolf beat out almost 6,000 entries from more than 100 countries to be named the Grand Prize winner. Wolf is truly a compelling and rare artist – a hypnotic performer with passion and style, a singer with hauntingly beautiful vocals, and a songwriter with depth and vulnerability. The winning song, “Believer,” is a powerful track, inspired by Wolf’s desire to break the silence about domestic violence and serves as a personal refusal to become the victim of her circumstance. "I feel such gratitude for this honour,” said Anna Wolf. “The message of ‘Believer” is burnt into every fibre of my being: to let go of expectations, to face my own vulnerabilities and to always keep faith that tomorrow will be the day I get to share my music with the world.” Born in Pretoria, South Africa, Wolf (formerly known as Tailor) has had a celebrated career, amassing hit singles, sold-out shows, South African Music Awards nominations, and a legion of dedicated fans. In 2018, she moved to London, where one night she took her guitar to the bathtub and recorded herself performing “Believer” on her cell phone by stomping her feet against the tub. She sent the demo to producer Pete Boxta Martin, (Missy Elliot, Jessie J, Sugababes), who ended up recording the song. You can still hear some of the noise from the bathtub in the final mix. Apple Music selected the song for four playlists (including Best of the Week, Future Hits, Jump Start and The A-list Alternative) and gave the music video a worldwide release as an exclusive premiere on their platform. More recently, Wolf has released the follow-up single, “Silence,” to acclaimed reviews, dedicating the song to her fans she calls “wolves.” “Anna Wolf is such a phenomenal artist,” said UO founders, Candace Avery and Jim Morgan. “She has so much passion and authenticity, and she needs to be heard. She is an artist who is not afraid to tackle difficult issues and make you feel emotion, and she is one of the most magnetic and inspiring artists we have ever come across.” In addition to winning $20,000 in cash (US) and $40,000 (US) in merchandise and services, Wolf also receives one-on-one mentoring from a group of upper-echelon music industry executives, including: Pete Ganbarg (President of A&R, Atlantic Records); Nick Haussling (Senior VP of A&R, Warner Records); Liz Cohen (A&R, RCA Records); Kim Stephens (President, Forward Entertainment / A&R, Lava Records); David Silbaugh (Talent Buyer, Summerfest); Brinson Strickland (President, Collective Artist Management); and Kristyn Ciani (Talent Buyer, C3 Presents).

  14. Are you in the market for a microphone? Don't say no. If you are a serious vocalist, then you are ALWAYS looking out for the latest and greatest microphones on the market. (And we already know that you're a serious vocalist, because you're here, reading the TVS blog, after all.) Maybe you're already a microphone aficionado, and reading this blog post will be like eating candy for you. Perhaps you aren't yet an expert, and you're wondering which are the best microphones for singers. Whatever brings you here, read on, because this post is for you. If you are a dedicated vocalist studying the TVS method, then you'll definitely want to start training with amplification. That much is a given. So let's discuss some of the different types of microphones out there, talk about a few of Robert Lunte's go-to recommendations, and then check out some of the newest, coolest mics from the recent 2018 NAMM show. First off, basics. Feel free to skip this first section if you're already a complete authority on microphones. For the relative newbies to the world of vocal amplification, there are TONS of different mics on the market, but we're going to briefly discuss a few major classifications today: Dynamic Microphones Condenser Microphones Ribbon Microphones Modeling Microphones Wireless Microphones Read on to find out the some of the main differences between these types of tech. [caption id="attachment_155243" align="alignright" width="238"] The JZ HH1 - A Great Handheld Microphone from Latvia. Dynamic Microphones Dynamic microphones are more commonly used in live settings, on stage. They are generally the most sturdy microphones out there and are usually on the less expensive side. If you have never before purchased a microphone, a decent dynamic mic is an excellent place to start, as they are the top recommended microphones for beginners. Click HERE and use the code: VOCALISTSTUDIO to get a special TVS deal on the JZ HH1. Condenser Microphones The Audio Technica AT5047 Cardioid Condenser Microphone commonly used in studio settings. Typically a bit more delicate than dynamic microphones, condenser mics are more sensitive and responsive, and they offer a more true-to-life sound than dynamics. They can pick up on finer nuances in sound. If you are looking for a microphone to use in a home studio that has some degree of soundproofing, you might want to look into condenser microphones. Ribbon Microphones The AEA KU4 Unidirectional Ribbon Mic Ribbon microphones are a unique style of mic, built around a thin piece of metal -- the “ribbon.” They have a rich natural sound and can capture the glorious tone from old recordings made in the 40s. However, they are often very delicate and fragile and they can be quite expensive. There are ribbon mics out there designed for live use, but they can still be a little more easily damaged than your go-to dynamic mic... so be very careful if using a ribbon mic on your next rock gig, and maybe consider saving the ribbon for studio use only! The Antelope Audio Edge Modeling Microphone Modeling Microphones Modeling microphones are more of a specialty item right now, but they are promising technology, poised to change the way we record vocalists and change the way we even think about mics. These are microphones that are designed to “model” other microphones. Picture a microphone that can recreate either the same iconic sound from the mic the Frank Sinatra used… OR the same sound from the mic that your favorite radio host uses today. These microphones are incredibly versatile. They pair with advanced modeling engines to create killer recordings, and are amazing. The Rode RODELink Performer Kit Digital Wireless Wireless Microphones Wireless microphones are used in any setting where the vocalist needs to be moving around a great deal. Training with a wireless microphone can be incredibly useful for vocalists who need to prepare for work in musical theatre or in any active performance setting. (Think of Beyoncé. Does she just stand and sing in front of a stationary mic at every show? Absolutely not.) Vocalists need to be able to perform in various different settings, with various different microphones, so training on a wireless system can be extremely beneficial, even for a beginning vocalist. Click HERE For Recommended Microphones & Home Recording Gear! Top Recommended Microphones To access the full list of mics that Robert recommends that vocalists use, in order to train with amplification, then you’ll need to pick up your copy of The Four Pillars of Singing. However, we can tell you two hand-picked mics from Robert Lunte’s list: 1) The JZ HH1 & The Sennheiser e935 Dynamic Microphone These are robust, reliable handheld microphones that are reliable and sound great. The e935 has a fantastically balanced EQ, both low and high end. It is also super durable. Definitely should be one of your frontline microphones. The JZ HH1 is unique because it has a great balance of low and high end, but unlike other handhelds, it has an "airyness" or "windyness" to the coloration which I actually really like! This unique element to the microphones coloration gives the mic a hair of white noise. I think this mic is very well suited for rock and metal for this reason. 2) The Antelope Audio Edge Duo & Edge Solo The Antelope Audio emulation microphones are really cutting-edge. Emulation technology allows singers to use plug-ins to capture the unique sound coloration characteristics of 18 of the world's most legendary, classic recording microphones. In other words, you can purchase one microphone system, and get the sound color and characteristics of 18 microphones but just dropping and menu and selecting the emulation you want. VIEW THE VIDEOS BELOW. Make sure to check out the Antelope Audio emulation microphones at The Vocalist Studio Vocal Gear Store! You can also purchase directly from Antelope Audio HERE and use this code to save $50: thevocaliststudio% 3) The Rode RODELink Performer Kit Digital Wireless Audio System The Rode RODELink Performer Kit is a fabulous solution for the vocalist on the lookout for a wireless microphone that is inexpensive. Easy to set up, with a good sound, this system is something to consider if you’ve ever wanted to train and perform with a wireless microphone. 4) Vintage Microphones from the 60s, 70s & 80s Two vintage microphones from Robert Lunte's collection. The Electro-Voice SRO-627B and the Italian RCF MD 2702[/caption] One of the most interesting and fun ways to purchase a microphone is to shop for refurbished microphones from previous eras. Many of these microphones sound great, just as good, or almost as good as contemporary microphones. They are all very rare. Great for microphone geeks and collectors. The industrial design and novelty of vintage handheld microphones is a big reason why these microphones are sought after. Here is a site where Robert Lunte shops for vintage microphones. Reverb.

  15. Hi, I'm new to voice work and I've bought a voice training book which explains how the voice works and how to train it. However, I'm stuck on the first exercise. It basically says that I need to lie down on the floor and scan my body for tensions and command those tentions to release but when I command nothing happens. I've tried this exercise a dozen times and it doesn't seem to work. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?
  16. Hello everyone, my passaggio is at B3-E4 and my chest voice is dark. It's not good for rock or pop cause is heavy and not pleasure. Some people told me I'm a tenor, others baritone but, is that possibile have a passaggio at B3-E4 beeing a tenor? It's possibile change the color of chest? Ty ...
  17. I am hoping to audition andI have to submit an online video. It's all accapella. Please give me your very honest feedback about my voice. Why does my tone change so much and sound so different? My chest voice to me sounds bad, like almost manly, but it is easiest for me to sing. While my head voice sound like it has a better tone, I get physically tired singing it and I can't seem to breathe right no matter how hard I practice from the diaphragm. Worse, my left side of the throat hurts sometimes. What vocal range am I? I noticed I talk very deeply and it hurts as well. I've always felt my voice is very 'bahh'bahh' like..almost gravelly. It doesn't have that crystal clear sharp voice I hear in most voices. How can i achieve that? Are my vocal cords damaged? My higher notes are unstable--it can either hit right or get REALLY pitchy. What am I doing wrong? What kind of voice/larynx/technique should i use to ensure a consistently good tone? What do you think are my biggest problems with my voice in your opinion? Lastly, which track do you think I should use to audition? Thanks for helping!! audition songs(in another langauge but i hope you don't mind): https://soundcloud.com/user-940698627/iu-ending-scene https://soundcloud.com/user-940698627/iu-dear-moon https://soundcloud.com/user-940698627/memories-of-the-wind-audiotrimmercom chest voice-just for reference: https://soundcloud.com/user-940698627/hero-mariah-carey
  18. Hello, my 10 year old daughter is an aspiring singer. She is in voice lessons and has been in some musical theater productions as well. We understand she is not necessarily a "natural", but she does have the drive and desire and truly loves performing. Any thoughts or suggestions for improvements are welcomed to help her with her goal of becoming a singer one day? She has sung the National Anthem at a couple college sports events and a professional event. I am also including a link for one of her musical theater shows, Music Man. Thank you in advance! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUg--tK829M (National Anthem) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8lGocVKUHw (Goodnight my Someone)
  19. I used to have a very very horrible (much worse) singing voice but I have been trying and making progress in the last 1-2 years. However i have only been practising through singing women's songs.. It is so weird that it seems no guys songs is suitable for my voice unless they are very deep throughout, otherwise i could only sing the very first few lines and that's it. and for women's song I am not hitting the right key anyway but it sounds ok so I keep on practising that way. I have been wondering recently that whether my voice is really so bad and unbelievably deeper than the general guys that makes my voice impossible to sing guys songs well or is it that i just need more practice to reach where I want to be? I have recorded some tapes to show what I mean, one of the tapes is a song that I really like and hope be able to sing very well . I have the following question: After the first few lines in guys songs I always have to try my best to sing in my head voice/ pre sing the lines in falsetto (don't even know if I really know how to, more like weird sounds but allows me to reach high notes effortlessly indeed).. compared to the original singers my voice in guys songs is obviously so very thin and with lots of strains,.. they're like talking but I am like drowning.. am I doing anything wrong or is it stem from the quality of voice (too deep)?.. is my voice really so deep ???? or am I not even hitting the right key in the guys songs.. PLEASE HELP ME here are some demonstrations. sorry my voice was tired then while recording and I could not sing loudly in the environment.. but here you go the song that I really hope to be able to sing: orignal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QE1piGBS1sI me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DKX_O41RaI&t=140s When I sing women's song adele original https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_pIaI93YGY me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OZsyshlT1M another guys song example in english.. just to show.. really bad shawn mendes orignal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXEx0DyIMks me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mq9zVMSM-nE please help me and tell me what am I and what should I do.... many many many thanks
  20. Trouble with tone at end of song. Advice appreciated. Cheers. Erik Robles
  21. I am teaching a student right now who is working on coloratura exercises. Often times when the student starts to sing them higher and faster the pitch accuracy goes out the window and he has trouble hitting the notes in tune. Any suggestions for ways I can help this student?
  22. Never had a singing lesson in my life, but starting school in Jan. 2019. I can hit an A#1 in chest, A#0 in Subharmonics, and I've found a lower subharmonic that even takes it to a D0(I think?). It's also getting deeper and better by the day. I've only been singing (horribly I might add) for a few weeks. I cannot find any advice, practice techniques, digital Tuners, songs, etc. For this range.... Ive exhausted you tube on the subject. luckily I have a 2nd decent baritone range as well to help with vocal entertainment. Anyone that can help? I need a ton of work, but really feel there's something special there I need to build on and share.
