How did you hear about TMV World?

  1. Hi Guys I'm a musician and a programmer from Hungary. I developed this free website-app, where you can warm up / exercise your voice. https://vocalroutine.com Give me your opinion, and share it if you like it! :)) Greetings: Andrew Polyák
  2. Recently I was playing with my voice and I felt some sort of up and down in the pitch which I tried again and it didn't happen so how can i develop it?
  3. I found an article that said warm ups don't have to be obligatory (or something). It also said the best thing is Steam. Do you use steam often? (I'll keep trying to find the article; can't see it now). I abused my throat again, this time overusing it. I am now considering that perhaps I won't need to warm up to sing in falsetto. How do you see it? I am just resting now. Edit: I've finally found the article (looks interesting to me): http://www.voicecouncil.com/10-ways-to-avoid-the-voice-doctor/
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. What are some techniques that will help a student learn how to use good breath support?
  7. Hi! I would find it interesting to know how you deal with your; so called, warmup exercices. Personally, mine are eg. breathing (mostly just the hiss exercise), lip trills, vowels. They are of course, also more than just warmups as I use them for learning intervals and so on. I've tried the hiss exercice while preparing tea in the morning but...the more physical things I do the shorter my hiss become but on the other hand you sometimes play an instrument and sing which is physical. Might be difficult to get the right body position when being in the kitchen. People, on the other hand, talk about how you can do your exercices while preparing tea and things like that. Has this worked for you or has it not worked? What are your experiences?
  8. I have recently begun teaching vocal lessons to a college student whose main instrument is not her voice. Her air support is strong in both her chest voice and head voice, but she is struggling to transition between the two. The transition is extremely abrupt and causes her to lose confidence in herself. What vocal workouts and exercises may be helpful when working on her mixed voice and transitions?
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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?
  12. Questions: 1. Can fapping daily for a long time effect your voice from the hormones and all the technical stuff that happens? Can it (in a process) change your pitch a little, help (or) go against expansion of the vocal range, and can it make the voice more "unreliable" and less solid (especially on the notes that close to the end of your range) ? 2. I need a help about finding a couple of formats for singing exercises. (I've done a lot of searching and nobody helped me please) (All of them are by Michael Jackson) + https://youtu.be/z2HSWsqVS8k?t=1m54s (on 1:54) - Michael is doing a "ohh" with a lot of different notes that seem to work more on the flexible side (correct me if I'm wrong).. Can you please help me find the format ? to post here notes as an example from that exercise from the video so I can learn the format and use this for my range. * and the same (^) with the four exercises below please. + https://youtu.be/z2HSWsqVS8k?t=6m47s (on 6:47) Michael is doing "ma" I could understand that 3 Major Notes UP - 4 Major Notes is on MAX - and 3 Major Notes DOWN (correct me if I'm wrong). + the same with https://youtu.be/z2HSWsqVS8k?t=11m53s (on 11:53) with the "no". + https://youtu.be/z2HSWsqVS8k?t=21m1s (on 21:01) with the "oh". + https://youtu.be/z2HSWsqVS8k?t=45m22s (on 45:22) with the "oh" . It's a pretty hard work (I Guess) to find these formats, I just want you to know that I really appreciate your help ! 3. What exercise would you recommend to help with the flexibility in the higher notes, but those who are more close to the end of the range. what exercise would make them more "reliable" or it's just that you need to expand your range more to make them more central and reliable. 4. (EDIT) Could you please give me a way of how to bridge through the passaggio ? Thank you all !!
  13. I've been thinking about vocal warmups and I'm curious to what is the actual purpose - Is it to "remind yourself" of the proper coordination, making sure the technique is spot on? - Is it about actually warming up the vocal muscles? - Is it psychological because you are afraid of injuring the voice? - Is it to "draw fluid" out of the voice to get rid of "morning voice" or get rid of mucus? - What do you think about the argument that "Vocal stamina is not unlimited, so warming up is actually wasting some of the stamina?". What's the purpose of a vocal cool down? In a sense it's counter intuitive to use the voice more to recover more? To reset the muscles to a relaxed state? Also I'm not looking for reasoning via analogy (f.ex. you wouldn't run without a warm up), I already know a lot of professionals recommend warm ups but I'm curious to the actual reason. It seems like a lot of the warmups are different and they seem really arbitrary in their focus. So if there is an actual purpose to warming up then it ought to be personal and intentional
  14. I am working with a new voice student. She has been a piccolo and flute 8+ years. I am trying to find some effective warm-ups for her. She is able to match pitch and has more confidence singing in her lower range. She has been recently singing with a very pressed sound and is very tense when beginning warm-ups. Trying to find warm-ups to help combat these things!
  15. Hi again, I tried support in these recordings but either I don't know how to do it properly because my throat still hurts. Like a grater was used on it. I'm currently using lozenges to soothe. Of late my voice has been raspy, I don't know why because my voice isn't usually like this. The ENT I went to said he sees nothing wrong with my vocal chords on the stoboscopy, he doesn't understand why I'm raspy now or sore throat. He says I'm probably going to have to do more tests. I'm still of the opinion that diaphragm breathing/ support only assists with sore neck & not throat. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for your help (Why is there no gospel tag? Is it cause it's not really a genre, cause you can get gospel rock, gospel rap etc. It's similar to animation where it's not a genre cause it could be a drama or comedy etc? if so where do hymns sit?)

  16. Hey guys I'm going to be producing a weekly vocal tip video series starting end of January. Honestly I've never really watched any of these type of series and was wondering if there were any topics people wanted covered. If it's something I have experience with I will be happy to oblige. Thanks so much.
  17. Hey there! I just want to show you this website that has a bunch of free vocal exercises. Ive been using them for a couple of weeks now and they are really good! here it is: http://jacobsvocalacademy.com/vocalexercises/
  18. Hey everybody, I am relatively new to this site and am still trying work out where certain posts go and such, so I apologize in advance if this is not the correct section but... At the moment I am really struggling with singing as neck/throat tension etc seem to be a big obstacle for me. I have searched all over YouTube trying to find a method I can use to reduce but after trying many of the warmups/stretches, I still feel a tight tug on my muscles when I tried and go out of my comfortable range. So that brings me to the question: Does anybody know an effective method of reducing it? This probably sounds like quite an stupid/basic question but I have minimal experience with trained singing and techniques used professionally. But I am hoping to have lessons after Christmas so that is something to look forward to! I have also been wondering about doing the Rate my Singing thing on this website but I'm that people will think I'm too young as I am in mid-teens. Thank you for reading!
  19. I'm practicing with a straw. My voice teacher suggested a stirring straw, and I bought one, but it's really small! It is difficult to get any air out. Is that the idea? Is the smaller the better? Not sure what is optimal when practicing the straw technique.
  20. I'd appreciate hearing some of youz guys's perspectives on Paul Rogers comments in this interview. I'm sure everyone would agree with his comments about "warming up" however, he makes an interesting comment about "his range," and then still manages to really avoid answering the question. Personally, I'm convinced he simply doesn't know the answer yet, he does offer the good warm up advice. The actual question is: "why do some singers lose their upper range as they age, and some don't?" -That's point #1, point #2 is, what about the interesting answer he gives regarding "feeling the song" in order to confidently sing the high notes in it. There are a few singers who don't seem in possession of the range they commanded in the prime of their career: i.e. Perry, Plant, Elton vs. other singers who are still going strong past their career peak: i.e. Rogers, Tyler, Elefante, Mickey Thomas, Tony Bennett, etc. the question is asked around 22:30
  21. Hi.. I am new here.. Im working about singing on my own and i realy improve my vocal.. Some questions: 1. I dont know if im a tenor or bariton yet, i found an easy exercise that makes my vocal sounds deeper and warmer, can it disturb my high notes? Can i change from a tenor to bariton? (If im a tenor) maybe this exercis is just a littel warm up for the low notes i dont know.. 2. If i sing and i can feel my sound in my nose, not in the chest and not in the head is it a mixed voice? 3. I heard thom york from radiohead when he was young and i heard his voice now and there are a lot of differences in his voice.. (In youtube) can someone explain to me please why his voice changed like that? 4. My vocal range can become smaller when i grow old ? I am 22 by the wayThank you for your help
  22. OK, so I've been realising that my singing voice is much more present, connected and fuller after a workout at the gym. The workouts aren't cardio based though, I rarely do cardio, it's either free weights or machine work. My voice just feels a lot better after a workout for like an hour than when ever I do a vocal warm up. My chest connects to my head without breaks, head voice is sharper, fry is better, my mix hits the sweet spot better. Just everything feels a lot overall better! Now, I understand that my blood flow is increased and I'm creating a pressure within myself to brace when pushing and pulling weights which in result could be helping warm up my voice. But why is this so much better than when I do a usual vocal "workout"? I do some pretty intense stuff when I work on my voice, obviously start off with simple stuff to wake my voice up and then get into chest stuff, head stuff and lastly mix stuff, but I don't get the level of connectivity as I do after a workout.
  23. So today I just realized, that I have access to my whistle voice. I was just trying to make high sounds in head voice (as usual). And whenever I made sounds quietly, I was able to reach notes that I would have a hard time with, if I sang them louder (which for a little while, I have wondered. That why is it when I sing quieter, I can reach higher notes). Right now, the highest I can go in head voice is a D6. And I can't even reach it with proper technique. I have to use lip rolls, to reach it. But when I made sounds quietly, I was able to reach an F6, G6, and higher sounds, but they were very quiet, and they were only squeaks. So that's how I came to the realization, that I have access to my whistle voice, and that I have been using my whistle voice, to make those high sounds. So do you guys have any tips for improving at whistle voice? Btw, I know that to improve one's vocal range, they need to work on making their mid range notes better first. So, I know that.
  24. I just got back from the studio. We recorded probably 95% of the instruments and its sounding really cool. I'm going back tomorrow to record vocals and do some touch ups on the instruments. I have 2 hours scheduled just for vocals. Any tips to prepare my voice for the studio? Any foods to stay away from or to go towards? I am going to Denny's that morning along with go karting and bowling right after. Any preperation recommendations to get a rockin vocal?
