  1. Hello everyone, I've been singing a lot since 3 years and i've been progressing constantly. But recently i was stuck, and for several month nothing changed. Then i discovered that i had a lot of tongue tension, so i tried a many different exercises and it worked a bit, my tongue is definitly more relax now than a month ago. But somehow, the tension seems to always get back at me ( especially the tension at the root of the tongue ) , and its fluctuating : someday i can sing pretty well and really feel my tongue as relaxed piece of meat and the day after, i'm back with the tension. Does any
  2. 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?
  3. There's this exercise I do, where I record myself singing a short melody of some kind, and then sing over it with a different timbre or pitch. Today, I picked an old UHURU melody I can remember from way back. Uhuru is South African music. I like a lot of African music. Well I was innocently doing this exercise, singing normally, and I played it back and listened. I couldn't believe it when I heard all these tongue clicks going through it. Tongue clicks are a feature of South African languages and music! How the **** did that get into my recording!!! Anyway, its pretty
  4. I have a tendency to stick my tongue out (briefly, without feeling it ) during singing (and speaking) which is quite annoying. Are there any exercises for relaxing it that could help me?
  5. I am not an instructor, teacher or technical specialist. This is only about my own personal experience and interpretation. I am going to post two short a cappella clips showing how I partially fix a note I was having difficulty with. An earlier thread by MDEW, "Tone, intensity Maybe maybe not", is more about singing vowels, but just thinking about the topic generally helped me with handling some consonants I am singing the words "West Virginia", and my tongue is still "recovering" from the "t"of "West" while my lips are shaping for the "V" of "Virginia". This overlap is fine dur
  6. 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.
  7. So the tongue behind the bottom teeth or on the floor of the mouth, does this really work for all styles and genres of singing? From my experience with a vertical embouchure it's easy to maintain but with a more horizontal embouchure it becomes increasingly difficult. Obviously on some consonants your tongue has to touch the roof of your mouth or rise above your bottom teeth but others can be shaped entirely with the throat through practice. Free motion of the tongue feels a lot easier but does have an affect on tone and timbre. Can you make all sounds desired with this technique or is cou
  8. What is tongue thrust? Tongue thrust (also called "reverse" or "immature" swallow) is the common name given to orofacial muscular imbalance, a human behavioral pattern in which the tongue protrudes through the anterior incisors during swallowing, speech and while the tongue is at rest. Nearly all young children exhibit a swallowing pattern involving tongue protrusion, but by the age of 6 most have automatically switched to a normal swallowing pattern. (Wikipedia). Why is it a concern? Dentists and orthodontists are concerned with the effects of the tongue and facial
  9. You've heard them, I've heard them. Some singers seem like they can do whatever they awant to do with their voice: endless range, dynamic expression, power and strength, yet control and finesse. But you know, the reality for most singers is that they are frustrated, to one degree or another, with a sense that their voice is dictating to them what they can and can’t do. They are not in control of their voice and experience limitations with range, tone quality, stylistic flexibility and the list goes on. Is it really possible for a singer to move beyond these limitations and discover the vocal
  10. As I previously mentioned, the tongue is often a source of unwanted tensions for singers. It is important to be aware of the engagement of the hyoid or digastric muscles at the base of the tongue, near the chin. Just the awareness of their activity helps in loosening their grip. Place both thumbs under your chin and sing an ascending passage. If you feel pressure from the tongue pushing downward, those muscles are getting in the way of efficient tone production. Also, if when watching yourself in a mirror you notice your tongue pulling backward in your mouth, it is being disruptive to good sin
  11. If you do an online search for this topic, you will find lots of advice from teachers to keep the tip of the tongue by the bottom teeth. The reasoning is that it will prevent your tongue from pulling back into your throat and creating a "swallowed" sound. If someone were to ask me about this topic, my response would be, "It depends." For those of you who prefer video format as opposed to text, I have addressed this topic in the YouTube video below. Otherwise, keep reading below. There are four major variables that influence tongue position which I will be outlining below. The
