Guest Posted March 16, 2012 Share Posted March 16, 2012 About 8 months ago when I started to want to take singing a bit more seriously, someone recommended Roger Love's book "Set Your Voice Free." As beginner it did give me some good information as well as a starting point and a bit more. I won't get into anymore because this isn't the point of this post...I know there are better books/methods out there; again, not the point. I've kind of outgrown that stuff anyway. There is now a lot of info (and "next step" stuff) missing from that, for me. My point is that, at the time I was very excited about this middle voice thing. Ok, once again I don't wish to debate whether there is such a thing or comparing notes or whatever. Some speak of mixed voice and others dismiss such things, I understand. This is also "not the point." (OK Tommy....what is the point) Well, in his book he focuses a lot on speaking voice which at the time made sense to me. Not quite anymore. He seemed to suggest speaking in middle voice also. I thought it was a good idea but never fully owned this concept. I just don't speak that high. To me it is also loud. More recently, after more research and through that research, being led here, and thus more information, I don't think speaking this way is a good idea. I would rather speak softer, (without being breathy of course) and perhaps save my voice (?). Am I wrong? Is there any general recommendations for speaking for the average person and especially for singers? Thanks Tommy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
