Have an audition coming up? For tenors, selecting the right repertoire and learning how to sing tenor parts that really showcase your vocal type is key. Here, Hayward, CA teacher Molly R. offers her suggestions… So, you call yourself a tenor! Thats a wonderful voice type to have — there are not as many of you higher-voiced males! Finding vocal repertoire in a baritone-heavy world is not always easy, but what IS written for tenors is just marvelous and bound to impress if youve
To be honest, when you’re hitting the higher notes, you should be shifting from your chest to your head voice anyway, so you asthma is less of a problem for higher notes and more of a problem when singing constantly low. Primatene tablets at Walmart (they’re behind the counter so you have to ask but they’re not prescription) before you sing for a long time will help a lot.
Teaching singing lessons in Dallas has been a wonderful experience. With historic areas and venues like Deep Ellum and the Meyerson Theatre nearby, as well as the eclectic and quaint Granada Theatre, and charming live music venues such as St. Martin’s Wine Bistro and Arthur’s Restaurant, the Dallas/Fort Worth area is overflowing with creativity and original talent. Not far away, the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth is home to the prestigious Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, and the city is home to the wonderful man, founder and superstar himself, Van Cliburn. Other noteworthy musicians who launched their careers from the rich recesses of Deep Ellum’s unique culture scene include Blind Lemon Jefferson, Robert Johnson, Huddie “Leadbelly” Ledbetter and Bessie Smith.
Everyone has their own voice and whether we realize it or not, nearly all of us strive to find and develop it. Whether our voice is quite literally a speaking voice, or whether it is expressed through career, lifestyle, or relationships with friends and family, chances are that we have found a vocation and endeavored to grow with and through it at some point in our lives. Our voice is the biggest part of who we are for one simple reason: it identifies our unique, individual character, and allows us to share that with the world.
Singers, why limit yourself to one genre? Many artists have produced amazing cover songs to put their own spin on tunes, even those not in their particular genre. Here, St. Augustine, FL voice teacher Heather L. shares six covers worth a listen… How amazingly awesome is it to hear a song re-sung by a singer in a way that’s totally unlike the original version? The correct answer? Really amazingly awesome! Sometimes it can change the way we hear the lyrics completely, sometimes it’l
It’s extremely important to find a good voice teacher and to ask about an instructor’s training and background, because poor instruction or incorrect practice can actually ruin your voice. Singing should never hurt.
Singing well involves the breath, the resonators of the upper face, and the muscles that you use to speak (in the lips, tongue, and jaw). Try looking at yourself in the mirror while practicing to make sure you aren’t doing any extra, unnecessary work.

Hi Charlotte. As you can see I keep posting regularly on the website and not going anywhere – so you can rest assured you’ll get answers here. (: As to your question, yes, I also had some experience before taking it and it still helped me out a lot. Doing the exercises every day for 8 weeks will definitely improve you and give you a larger sense of confidence in your singing. As to the price, based on the fact that it’s a full course for the price of two-three lessons with a real teacher – for me it was easily worth it.
I am a singer and I have been through the whole nine yards of painstakingly making sure that my singing voice is always at its best, especially when I am out to perform to an audience. That’s why I feel I am credible enough to teach you some effective ways not just to learn how to sing but to learn how to sing well.
This isn’t a “hearing test”, it’s not checking for hearing damage or age-related hearing loss. And don’t worry about whether you have a “musical ear” or not. The tone deaf tests which are well-designed don’t require any musical knowledge or skill. They test only the basic biological ability of distinguishing different pitches. You can be totally unmusical and still pass the test, because tone deafness isn’t actually about musical skill, it’s much more fundamental than that.
As one of the top vocal coaches in the country, I frequently hear: “What are your top vocal tips for singers?” Well, I could rattle off a long list, and yammer on for hours. (I’m a nerd’s nerd when it comes to vocals…) And I have a long list of favorite tricks up my sleeve from more than 20 years of coaching singers… But I love a challenge – so I pretended that I had only 5 minutes to tell you my top ones and so I wracked my brain to come up with the Top 5.
There are numerous people within our world that absolutely love to sing and are grasped by the proposal of training their voice. While there are vast and various distinguishing methods, demonstrated is a productive and safe style to train one’s vocals. Note that these steps can take quite the time and commitment. Be willing to input your motivation. You may practice these techniques on your own time, either with further professional vocal training, or for your own talent development. Please use these methods to branch off into finding what works for you as an individual. Celebrate the gift of singing you have, as all of our voices are unique and beautiful in their own way. Enjoy your time practicing and training your voice!!

There are many reasons why, but the main one is that you won’t learn any bad habits. Singers who have a lot of experience singing, but not a lot of experience being coached, often times have some really bad singing habits that need to be “unlearned” first. And that can sometimes take time.

Some recognize notes and enjoy a melody, but say they can’t sing or play. I say you can sing and you can play. If you just follow the proper singing lessons and proper instrument basics, you can sing and play. It is not difficult but simple. All you have to do is to put some effort. Just to practice and that is all what matters.
Although singing isn’t the most difficult skill to learn, it’s definitely more complex than it seems. To some learners, singing comes naturally and they can create beautiful vocals with very little practice or effort.

Lip Trills: Release lip tension and connects breathing and speaking. Releases tension in the vocal folds. Place your lips loosely together release the air in a steady stream to create a trill or raspberry sound. First try it on an “h” sounds. Then repeat on a “b” sound. Hold the sound steady and keep the air moving past the lips. Next try to repeat the b-trill gliding gently up and down the scales. Don’t push beyond what it comfortable at the top or bottom of the scale.
I just had my first piano lesson with Robert where he worked to improve my piano playing technique as well as expand my skills into other areas such as improvisation. The lesson went very well. I look froward to expanding my skills in future lessons.
Once you get the hang of extending the vowel sound focus on listening to the qualities of it – eg. volume (can you produce loud or soft?); pitch range (can you make the sound high or low?); pitch constancy (can you hold one pitch? Can you visit other pitches in the same breath?)
Remember, learning to sing is like any other skill or activity, it takes time and practice. When you have a program like this one, you can drastically improve your voice because you can literally practice and learn whenever you want.
