Hello, my name is Dylan. I am a High school student and I have been really wanting to start a band. If need be, I will go independent. I do struggle with equipment and money because, well, I have no money! I believe that I am a good singer and that I can get better. My one problem is stage fright. Terrified by the thought. Though I do have this fear and I plan on working on it, I really would like a vocal teacher or maybe someone who could help me with my music. If you think you can help in any way, PLEASE contact me at my email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
The most important thing I learn, though, is how to breathe properly. When David first asks me to take a deep breath, I instinctively puff out my chest while my stomach contracts. “We’re taught to be tense, to hold ourselves in,” he says, before explaining that the proper way to breathe is to relax, take in air deeply as if into your stomach, and then use this to support your voice as you sing. It can feel counter-intuitive, but with a bit of practice I start to get the hang of it.
Just bear in mind that HearAndPlay is very much Gospel & R&B/Soul oriented – this fact sometimes throws some people off. However, this does not mean that they only teach Gospel songs, so don’t run away scared now.
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.
So I wanted to give them to you as if I was actually giving you a voice lesson, right here, right now. Stand in front of a mirror if you can, because I’m going to ask you to watch your jaw and your head position to control movement as you sing.
Begin with breathing exercises. Breathing exercises will allow you to better control the pitch and duration of your singing. It’s no surprise: singers who can breathe deeply and consistently get better mileage out of their voice.

Basically, you need to record yourself and practice often. If your like me, you will hate the sound of your own voice at first. Don’t worry, you will get better. Most importantly, don’t hurt yourself. If you find a teacher that claims singing is “athletic”, find a new teacher.
I love holiday music and am taking a group holiday a capella class. It’s a group of about half a dozen people, meeting 6 times (plus 1 make-up lesson and at least 3 performances). It’s 200 for the class, so about $33 a lesson.
Pitch is defined as the quality that allows us to classify a sound as relatively high or low, and is determined by the frequency of sound wave vibrations. Knowing how to sing on pitch is what sets apart great singers.
After I have finished the entire course, I felt like I can sing any song in any note and chord. I had the confidence to take on more songs that are difficult to sing. Since I felt like I could handle any song, I was able to write songs that challenged my vocal ability. The Superior Singing Method is worth $97 but what I got was more than my money’s worth.
Certainly, when you exercise, run, or play sports, a healthy warm up is a good way to prepare, improve your performance, and prevent injury to yourself. The same holds true when you use your voice. A short vocal warm up improves the quality of the sounds you make and helps prevent vocal injury, keeping you in good voice and making your voice production feel better. Many people use warm ups everyday. You should use vocal warm ups before vocally intensive activities like public speaking or singing, classroom teaching, or exuberant social events.
This doesn’t mean that you have to practice for long periods of time. Make shorter practice sessions strategic yet fun! Create your own silly warm-ups — try singing with “nonsense” words, or make a simple song your warm-up.
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
Depending on the style of play the guitarist is interested in I move on from there. Mel Bays Classical method is always a solid choice as is the Christopher Parkening Guitar method. I also have a few tab oriented books and some rock/blues oriented books.

Singing with your head voice, singing with your chest voice and bringing them together in harmony are some of the techniques you will learn in Module 6. Blending these two different voices together and transitioning smoothly from one voice to the other are some of the important aspects you want to learn to become a better singer.
We are the only music school in Cincinnati that gives their students the opportunity to earn special wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies, AND certificates for passing musical tests. Our students practice hard and are motivated to succeed so that they can earn their awards. And best of all – this system is free of charge for all CSM students!
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.
Always listen to what you are singing. You can achieve this easily by either plugging one of your ears with your finger or putting your hand in front of your mouth. Do not cover it though. Then, change your pitch slightly until you are certain that you are singing in the right key.
Another reason is that the vocal exercises can be downloaded so you can work on your voice anytime. In addition, the exercises are designed to expand different aspects of your vocals such as the range, resonance, power, control and tone.
Hellomy name is Arrolla , I have recently developed rattling in my throat. I’m very frustrated because I can’t get rid of it, at first I thought it was a cold or the flu, but then it stayed for a long time. I now am afraid that my voice will have this phelmy sound.I’m currently trying eucalyptus oil in the air that helps a lot, but I’m wondering if you have some other ideas that I could use. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.
Hi my name is Kei-shun and I’m a tenor. I have a non straining vocal range from G#2-E4. My music teacher, Daniel Henry, told me that I have the quality of a tenor one, so I sing tenor one. When I was 14 I could sing cheat voice to C5 with no problem. Now I’m 17 I start to strain going pass E4, as if my voice tries to go into head tone. If I sing soft I can sing to C5, but when I sing tenor one in the choir can’t get pass the E4; it would sound throaty and straining. I want to know how could I train myself to sing between F4-C5 with no problem, so I could be a tenor one like I want to be.
I was so tired of having one vocal coach after another tell me what THEY thought I should be capable of. Only I can determine that, and with the help of the Superior Singing Method my full potential started to reveal itself.
Deborah is an outstanding teacher with a passionate interest in the improvement and success of her students. Since working with Deborah, my voice is stronger, clearer, more flexible. I have greater control over my voice, and a much broader range..I have Deborah to thank for two musical theatre jobs this summer. I plan to continue taking singing lessons from Deborah for many years to come.
The final piece of the puzzle is flexible scheduling.

It’s the least we can do to make sure that music – and a newfound superstar singing voice – are well within the reach of everybody with the passion to realize his or her potential.
Hi Reagan…as someone who listens to little else than Christian music…Casting Crowns, MercyMe, Michael W, Third Day and much Bethel Music…I have just successfully auditioned for a local Carols this year, singing Cloverton’s A Christmas Hallelujah – trying to make sure there is some good Christian message amongst the traditional stuff. I’m 55, and this is the first big one for me (5000+ people ) so keep going and good luck. Hoping these tips help…email@example.com br
Start by practicing with a backing track. You can normally find karaoke versions of popular songs on YouTube, or if necessary you can use the regular studio version, singing along with the lead singer. Begin with just a short section of the song, for example just the chorus.
Mic check. Christina breaks down the difference between live performance and studio time, as well as the microphone techniques she’s perfected over her career. Then, get a rare glimpse into the recording booth as you watch Christina perform her iconic song ‘Beautiful’.
I know that for me, I enjoy getting to put the spotlight on my students. I also like haveing concerts for my students to be able to demonstrate their skills for their friends and family. I also can work with students of any age, starting at about age 5 through age 100+. My experiences with teaching children gives me the ability to teach even very young students.
The distinction between Voice Teacher and Vocal Coach is most apparent in the classical voice/opera community as well as in the Broadway community. The distinction tends to get murkier in the pop/commercial music world and amongst those without traditional voice training.
Ugh, I wish I could sing. I want to get into theatre acting (its my first job choice, I do have backups) but being able to sing is something that would really help me as musical theatre is big in the industry (well, where I live, its the only kind of theatre) and yeah. Its not shyness or anything like that because when I do perform, I am the most confident person ever its just my singing voice sounds like 100 cats being strangled :/ is there anything that could help me?
I definitely understand where you are coming from. I couldnt hit high notes with good tone literallu a few weeks ago. Now that I know how to sing more correct I can definitely understand her anologies. Singing is hard to teach, I imagine because people are stubborn lol
In fact, if you’ve taken beginner voice lessons before, you may have been surprised by how slowly your voice teacher went at first. You may have examined your posture, done some warm-ups and breathing exercises, all before you started singing an actual song.
