yozguitar Posted April 19, 2012 Share Posted April 19, 2012 Anyone doing or has done this singing/voice book course? I am at Chapter 4 - The Miracle of Middle Voice I am little unsure of one or two things and would appreciate it if someone could help me. 1) When should I use the cry exercise and the other exercises in this chapter? Should I use them simultaneously as the one onctave exercise or only if I am struggling with the one octave exercise? 2) What is actually happening on the one-octave-exercise (male voice)? What note does it start on and what does it finish on? Is it getting higher each time? Say the first note is 1, does it go 123444321 (in other words, the fourth note is sung 3 times)? And then does it go 234555432 and then 345666543 and so on? So each time, it starts a half step higher? On some parts of the tape, Roger also sings, including from the very beginning. Should I also sign when Roger sings or is he just showing us how it is done? So, say when Roger sings along to the piano, and then it is just the piano on its own after, has it gone up by a half step or is it the same set of notes? 3) Does Volume matter when I am doing the exercises? I mean, does it not matter as long as it is consistent (i.e. we should not be getting louder as we go higher). The reason I ask is, I am a little ashamed in case the neighbours can hear me doing all these funny exercises (mum, moom, goog, gug), and I try to stay lowish in the volume. I tell you what I have noticed though, it seems to be easier to reach the notes (particulary middle) if I sing at a higher volume. Is that normal? I mean, is it hard to hit the notes when you sing in a low volume? It would be great if someone could help us out here. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
