  4. And how to practice sight singing alone? (different question) recommended sight singing resources?

  7. Hi everyone! I'm new here, and my goal is to be able to eventually sing like Ronnie James Dio and Jorn Lande. As a beginner, what would be the best way to start me on my path? Should I find a teacher? If so, can someone give me some recommendations? Are there any good lessons online that could get me started? I luckily have a really high natural range, so I don't need to expand my range so much. I just want to be able to effortlessly sing high songs without it sounding too nasally and find a way to add that amazing gravel and vibrato. Thanks for your help!
  8. So, I am a rather young baritone/bass (depends who you ask) and I'm just trying to sound better singing my favorite songs. However, I don't really have the range to sing most of them, and I want to fix that lol. I feel like I have 3 modes that I can sing in, but 1 of them is unusable, and that happens to be the one in the range that I'm looking to use. I'll start with range, my comfy chest voice on a normal day is around D2 - D4 and I can occasionally get that pesky E4 on good days. My head voice on a good day can get up to F5 and can be taken down to around C4 ish. Now, the fun thing is I have a middle thing that sounds a lot like falsetto but weaker, and it covers from around F4-D5. Now, this middle thing would be incredibly useful if it was strong, but like I said it's lighter than a falsetto currently. I think this is some form of mixed voice that I'm just not putting the right finesse into. Does anyone have some exercises or tips that I could try to get that mode of my voice to sound more full so I could use it in songs? As it is currently, I have no clue how to train that, and neither does my vocal coach. Thanks in advance for any help. :)
  9. Hearing this song for the first time can you depict an image of the singer? Do you think he is a professional or amateur? How long do you think he is been singing and playing guitar? How is his guitar playing? How old do you think he is? I sometimes do this for random artists I’ve never seen and then look them up and see the differences. Anyhow, what do you think about this cover? How can you tell?
  10. How do you singers do retrieval practice? It seems to me that this must be done acapella. At a lesson we bassically only sing with accompaniment. I find that I have never been tought how retrieval pratice works for singers. What are your tips? I find that amateur singers who are ok at singing have sung acapella without even thinking about doing it as an exercise.
  11. It is sad to say and hear that we have lost another great singer, songwriter and friend. John Prine passed do to complications of the corona virus. John was not in the greatest of health to begin with and the added stress of the virus became too much for his body to handle. If you have heard John singing you may wonder why he would be brought up in a Vocalists forum. From a singers standpoint he was not the best of singers and his voice did not have any special characteristics. His songs are simple, uncomplicated and lack any technical flare. When he sings and writes it is as if he were having a conversation with his best friend. That is the very reason why his songs are special, why he has had a career in music from the time he took a dare on an open mike night at a local pub and captured the hearts of many people around the world. He sings like he is singing to family, he is engaging, funny and he makes you think a little bit. You do not have to be the best singer with the highest notes or the most complicated vocal runs with the perfect intonation , tone and vibrato to be a good singer or entertainer. You just need to have something to say and someone to say it to and communicate the message.
  12. Opera singers, classical singers, actors, cantors, preachers and even nowadays rock stars and rappers could gain a great deal from learning one of the most elaborate and sophisticated singing techniques that was invented more than 200 years ago by the Scuola Italiana del Belcanto (translated freely into: The Italian school of beautiful singing). This ancient school of thought has produced some of the most fundamental Opera music and singing techniques that are on a daily basis use by most Opera houses in the world. But , you don't have to be an Opera singer to take advantage of the great benefits the Appoggio technique has to offer a professional vocal user You can learn to master it with an extremely good voice coach or as a part of professional voice therapy design with a voice specialist like me. Appoggio is coming from the Italian word Appogiare which means to lean on What do we lean on when we sing? On air ! Our breath support which is crucial to voice and speech production. Breath support means exactly that, the support our breath is getting before and while we produce sounds of speech or singing using the air that is coming up from our lungs moving our closed vocal cords approximately 100 times per second (Hz) for men, 200 times per second (Hz) for women and up till 400 times per second (Hz) for a child. Many singers and actors (especially beginners or natural ones- that do not attend comprehensive voice coaching as part of their training) are referred to my voice clinic by ENT surgeons after suffering from vocal nodules, vocal cords hypertrophy, detuning and other vocal abuse symptoms mainly because they do not use the correct breath support while stretching their voices to the limit. Simply put, the air support or the breath support for professional voice users like Opera singers, classical singers, actors, cantors, preachers and even nowadays rock stars and rappers should be based on the abdominal muscles. In most cases, state of the art technique for a singer will be MBS = Midsection (abdomen) Breath Support and for an actor the AGIN technique (abdominal breath support while the body is in motion, like on stage). Most clinical professional vocal abuse cases will require an exact Stroboscopy / Laryngoscopy done with the ENT specialist and the professional voice evaluation by the speech pathologist that specialize in professional voice therapy, and then the patient will be given vocal cords physiotherapy and a full 12-weeks technique for improving his breath support and tone control. While this procedure is extremely good for beginners or natural singers and actors, cantors, preachers, rock singers and rappers. It must be understood that these patients use their voice for their living their voice is their profession! Most of them simply cannot wait 12 weeks of correction like that because they will lose their jobs / places in their scheduled performances And what about the veteran singer or actor who had done a great deal of vocal training already with his voice coach and knows all about how to breath correctly? That is why this Appoggio technique will be most beneficial in these cases! Simply put, when you use Appoggio you first take in lots of air using upper chest muscles then you push in your belly muscles the diaphragm will move up pressing on the air in your lungs (that is abdominal breath support !) then you will start voice production while the pressed air is coming from below the vocal cords supporting them while vibrating, then you will use your upper chest muscles dropping them slowly controlling high pitch sounds or extra long periods of vocal singing with extra air support from the chest. So, basically, Appoggio is leaning on two breath support techniques put together the abdominal and the upper chest. A veteran singer or actor could learn that pretty quick while the beginner will be able to learn it combined with the full scale technique on the 3rd treatment providing him enough air support to hold onto his scheduled performances and thus proceeding with his 12-week voice therapy. It is good practice for the voice speech pathologist to teach the patient how to project his voice thus improving volume without putting more effort on the vocal mechanism.
  13. Hey guys ? Can you please tell me if it’s my mixed voice?
  14. I am looking for suggestions to work on passaggio improvement and techniques in vocal lessons.
  15. 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?
  16. I am in the habit of cutting the last note of a phrase of words too quickly and not holding the note as long as I should. I was wondering if there is a lesson in the TVS program that addresses this problem? I want to get to the point of breaking that habit and holding notes as long as they should be and have it be second nature to do that.
  17. 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?
