I thought you had a strong tone. If you've just started singing then I'd imagine you're better than a large majority of beginner singers. I listened to the video twice and the first time I heard what I thought were a few errors in pitch at the end of your lines but the second time I hardly heard the...

Creating a Personal Practice Schedule

I have a question about vowel sounds and how they relate to vocal training. I've noticed from listening to Singing Success, watching YouTubes, reading, etc. that there are certain vowel sounds used to practice certain postures and I've even read that some vowels are more particular to certain ranges...

Re: Critique Me (Lay the Smackdown)

you're not nasal, but yeah, you can hear the strain on the higher notes. I'm curious about this implied relationship between nasality and "strain on the high notes." I have exactly this issue: Although I can sing scales up to C4 or so, my voice starts to sound strained at around D3 or E3 when I'm a...

I'm not sure if people are having trouble with Z-share. It was messing up a lot so I uploaded my songs on another site.

Re: Calling All Baritone Singers...

I'm kind of new to the whole singing thing but here's my take. I think I'm a baritone so I'm kind of in the same boat as some of you. Right now I've been working on extending my range upward and from what I understand it's easier to go up than down. I recently downloaded the Singing Success course a...

I had an extremely nasty virus that gave me the 2nd worst sore throat in my life (first was mono) and I've been working really hard over the last few days to get my voice back. My main concern here is my t...
