Just started TVS… have a few questions about getting started

I finally got around to getting my TVS training underway. I just did the warm up and foundation building routine and I have a few questions regarding it. I'm sure these answers are probably obvious but I want to make sure I'm performing the exercises properly. Firstly, for establishing the resonant track, are we supposed to just keep shifting down an octave every time it gets too high for the whole duration of the ~10 min piano recording? Is this the same for the track and release? What about if we are doing them for just a warm up?

For the "track and track"… there isn't an actual track so I'm assuming we would do another ~10 mins with the track and release recording with it?

Are we supposed to be going through all of the onsets to start? I have been doing all except: mesa di voce, Attack and release and contract and release.

There are two versions of the Onset & octave/ onset & melodic 5th workouts… "siren" and "sweep." What is the difference between them and how should I use the "sweep" ones?

If any of you guys could help me out I'd really appreciate it :D

Leezuh,

The track & track training routine is trained with the content titled, "establishing the resonant track".

In regards to how much time you spend training any of the vocal routines, I have specified in the quick start video that you will go through your vocal break two times, after two times through your vocal break you are done with that work out. You do not have to work out every piece of content to its full duration. This is the general rule for all 64 of the vocal workouts in the four pillars of singing.

Regarding the specialized onsets it is best that you familiarize yourself with all of the onsets and train all of the onset before you begin the resonant tracking and sirens work. Having said that, the most important onsets for you to train early on will be; track and release, quack and release, wind and release and dampen and release. The other specialized onsets will become more relevant later in the training routines.

If you have the latest update, as of two weeks ago, you will have three more additional sets of specialized onsets that are used to help you to get into the three TVS acoustic modes; edging, cubing and neutral. This makes the total number of onsets to learn from the four pillars of singing; the primary eight specialized onsets and three supplemental onsets to help you get into the acoustic modes. One of the three acoustic modes is the very popular and important work that you need to do on the vowel "Ah". Currently there is no program available that offers more clarity and training content to help you to master the vowel, "ah" and benefit from the musculature growth that it will give you.

Do not forget to use the new training routine tables which show you exactly which onsets to use and which vowels to use to master your acoustic modes.

In regards to the melodic fith sirens and sweeps and the octave sirens and sweeps, that difference is the speed of the workout. Sweeps are trained fast, sirens are trained with slow and controlled movements. In the four pillars of singing you will notice that every vocal workout offers a slow medium and asked speed option. I know of no other vocal training program that has taken the time to offer you the same workout in different speeds. This is to help you to learn more effectively. Start with the slow version and work your way up to the medium, then the fast versions of every workout. This ensures that you can have an early success and then grow from that success, move forward and train everything detailed in the training routine tables at different rates of speed.

Lastly know that in the last couple weeks I have updated the training routines for the four pillars of singing. If you are a new customer of the four pillars of singing, I recommend that you update your digital version of the product. The most recent updates include detailed training routines and extensive explanation and work in regards to the TVS neutral acoustic mode known as "ah".

Beyond that, the best place for you to get help on answering questions regarding your training with the four pillars of singing is with me personally. I want you to send an email to me personally and I'll answer your questions for you. Let's make sure that you're getting advice from individuals that are qualified to speak in regards to TVS methodology, the training routines and the information you are asking about.

Hi Rob, thanks so much for responding. I did actually send you an email on Sunday with the same questions. I was a little eager to start and make sure that I was doing it right so I thought someone on here might be able to help me out. I will send you another email, thanks again! :)
