Pollen season or other allergies hit, you get rear-nasal drip, and it drips down to your vocal cords and irritates them. Prescription allergy medicines can overly dry out your cords. Instead, clean out your nose with saline then line it with vaseline or its equivalent. This prevents the allergens from getting into your system and setting you off. This won’t help after an allergic reaction, but do it first thing in the morning as a preventative measure during allergy season.

There is a correct way to sing, and when you adapt correct technique your voice will flourish! You will develop a powerful, wide vocal range. Your tone will be thick and rich, consistent through your entire range. Which leads me to another point….
A. To a certain extent. And to a certain extent it’s a PR myth. This is how I like to answer that “born with it or not question”…the best and bravest singers are singers first, and students of singing later. Kids who like to sing never shut -up and therefore they grow. The intuitive development gained by singing throughout childhood, i.e. vocal strength, timing, an ear for harmony, and an ear for matching instruments cannot be made up for later- unless they perhaps master a musical instrument as a child. Good singing is more than a great sounding voice. This is why there are successful pros who may not have the most amazing tone, but really take the house down.
First of all these programs make it a breeze for me to edit, play back, print and hear music sheets. I can save these files and experiment with them as much as I like. You can save these files in mp3 format and copy it to an mp3 player. Isn’t that a more convenient way to assess your work and check which elements need working on? Continue Reading »
Howdy! My name is Lee Allen aka Leezurly. I have been involved in music since i was born! both my parents are musicians and they were my favorite teachers. I have performed on many instruments in dozens of ensembles touring several countries over the last 3 decades. My goals as your instructor are simple: to assist you in learning what you are interested in, progressing at your own pace and enjoying your lessons. I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals!
For devoted musicians, instruments are almost like an extension of the body – but vocalists are the only ones who can truthfully say their body itself is an instrument. And what an instrument it is! There are as many unique voices as there are people in the world, so no two vocalists have exactly the same sound. What that means is simple: if you want an instrument that’s like no other, your voice is it. All it takes is to learn how to unlock its potential, and that’s where vocal lessons at Guitar Center come into the picture. We’ll prepare you with the basic skills and knowledge you need for success, and guide you through the process of developing and fine-tuning your voice to bring out its musical potential.
Staying away from caffeine, smoke, and alcohol. Those three substances can damage your voice. If you want to sing well, you have to avoid at least going overboard – drinking too much coffee, chain smoking, and taking in a lot of alcoholic beverages.
For clarinet and oboe students I like to compliment what their band/orchestra director is using when possible. I also love the Klose method for clarinet. The Rubank is also a tried and true book I use. I’ve had a lot of success with these books.

superior singing method review
The first module serves as an introduction to the whole course. It takes you through the different lessons and exercises that you have to do so it is essential that you watch the video. Furthermore, it serves as a guide in setting up a timetable and practice schedule.
Aside from the exercises and worksheets, the great thing about the training program is that you can get additional advice from real expert vocal coaches. Whether you are stuck with a problem, or you need some enlightenment on difficult subjects, you can ask the staff questions about anything.
Hi I have been seeing really positive reviews of superior singing method all over the internet. But I’m just wondering what are the chances of it helping improve a voice that has really bad pitch, tone agility power basically just a terrible singing voice? And realistically how long would it take to helpimprove your voice.
When it comes to pitch, tone, vocal range and other aspects of singing, this course will help take you to the next level. It helped me and others I know a ton and I’m sure it will be the same for you too.
You’ve probably heard that honey/lemon/and hot water are helpful if you have mucous in your throat. But remember that lemon is drying so don’t overdo it. I prefer gargling, here’s the best way: If your throat feels gunky and/or irritated: mix 1/4 teaspoon baking soda + one cup warm water. Take a small amount of fluid in your mouth and gargle at a high pitch-this causes your vocal cords to contract and rise closer to where you are actually gargling (your epiglottis will prevent the fluid from actually reaching your vocal cords). Spit and repeat several times.
A singing teacher will be able to notice and correct bad habits that lead to injuries and negatively affect your sound. Additionally, the motivation and inspiration you can get from this type of guidance makes a huge difference in your learning process.
In a powerful 4-part series, top vocal coach, Roger Love, reveals the same techniques he teaches his all-star clients (including John Mayer, Gwen Stefani, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, the cast of Glee, and many others!)
Let’s answer the second question first. Voice lessons are an excellent way to learn proper singing techniques without stressing your vocal cords. You might have a natural talent for singing and think lessons are unnecessary, but there’s only so far you can go on raw talent alone. Singing lessons can teach you how to:
I still can’t get a vibrato working at all. I’ve been researching forever and just can’t figure out what’s wrong with me. Does my voice need to be stronger first before the vibrato will come? I feel like at the moment i’m simply practicing “laaa” repeatedly with no outcome. My ultimate goal is just have a vibrato, doesn’t even need to be a good one, i just want the experience of having one.
Life can get a little crazy sometimes – we get it. But if you really want to become a better singer, you’ll need to make the commitment to practice! Here are some tips for fitting in singing practice from online singing teacher Liz T.: So you want make a good habit of a daily singing practice routine, but dont exactly have the time for a private lesson everyday? (Nor should you be overusing your voice everyday!) You might be getting frustrated because you work all day, are tir

Licorice tea or candy (experiment with this, some people get an uncomfortably speedy buzz from licorice), baking soda or salt water gargles (see below), honey, sugar lozenges, steam, certain herbal teas — which teas to drink varies from person to person so experiment.
Sequences such as “Mi Me Ma Mo Mu” up and down the scale will give you practice in opening your mouth, relaxing your throat, and supporting your sound. You don’t want these notes to sound nasal, but rather supported and steady.

I was able to perform them better because Aaron goes through all the details during the vocal exercises. I have never seen this type of teaching method in other online singing courses. The way Aaron performs the exercises with you in the recording helps to make you feel more confident in the way you are performing the exercises by yourself.
Hi, I’m Josh and I am learning all the components of singing. I have fairly large vocal range, however, I would like to know how to sing in harmony. Some excersises, tips, and rules of harmony are the things that I am looking for. Does anyone know where I can get this? Thank you.
I want to be a singer and this is my dream. i can sing but my voice is really bad and my voice is not good for singing. how can i have great voice like Ariana Grande?! Can i have a Laryngeal surgery? please help me, thanks
In 2014 I worked for a few months in New Orleans – one of the world’s biggest music capitals. I decided that after years of playing music, it was a great opportunity to learn how to sing too. I was previously occasionally watching a couple of YouTube lessons about singing, but those never really make you stick to something because they lack a systematic approach. Anyway, I started taking singing lessons with a well-known local teacher.
Hi Christian! Getting your voice to sound good on the microphone is an art unto itself. Try getting a bit closer to the mic and use breath control to control volume to get a better rounder sound (instead of the thin sound that comes from being too far away) and sing with Hearfones to get better control over the sound of your voice http://www.hearfones.com – That’s a start – of course there is a lot more to it. I recommend training with a great vocal coach who can show you more.

I’m going to give you one of the greatest tips that I know about singing higher notes. Now, don’t hear me wrong, though, extending your range takes time and discipline. However, this will move you down that road a little more quickly……
Alfred, Your break is perfectly normal. It’s called “the pssagio”. The way to fix the break is to train your voice with vocal technique the build strength in the pssagio or “break” area. Singers are like athletes who need to train the small muscles of the voice to improve performance. Start with these https://www.caricole.com/singersgift In time your break will smooth out and your range will expand as a result! Good luck and keep us posted!
Two Octave Scales: Provides maximum stretch on the vocal folds. Start in a low pitch and gently glide up the scale on a “me” sound. Don’t push the top or bottom of your range but do try to increase the range gently each time you do the scales. Now reverse and glide down the scale from the top to the bottom on an “e” sound. You can try this on the “oo” sound also.
Toya is great! Exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. She identified my areas for improvement, recommended exercises, and outlined a plan. She has excellent teaching skills and a delightful personality. I am very pleased.
Begin by aiming for just a 3 song repertoire. Pick three songs you like and which are in your comfortable range. It helps to memorise the song lyrics so that you have one less thing to think about as you sing.
Arms – When you aren’t gesturing, you should be relaxing your arms at your sides. Don’t make fists, clasp your hands, or fidget with your clothes. This adds tension and makes you look (and feel) nervous.
