Actually the low C was a bit of an exaggeration...I can only go down to low G without sounding like crap...so maybe 1st alto? and the top few notes are squeaky...

I have a better technique about using your diaphram... my friend gave me a tip and it made my voice so much better in many differrent area of singing.. stand up straight with your back against a wall... as you take a deep breath in (dont use your nose), stick your stomach out (not too much), and let the breath out slowly as you sing!

My friend also told me that if you dont use your diaphram.. you can tell really easily because after maybe an hour or so... your throat is either sore or/and you cant hit the same notes anymore...

according to my vocal instructor, with time, yes... the hard part is extending range, you should try and get lessons as early as you possibly can, a mans voice settles in his early twenties...


Another Tip from Kimberly, Tone Follows the Tongue! Therefore, if you aren't tone deaf, and you think you are singing on key, and somebody tells you that you're not, make sure you're tongue is pointing forward, that way the sound doesn't get distorted between your mouth and your ear!...

Send a message via AIM to crazychu
X = What actually starts with x? Any suggestions as to what can go here?

eXamine your surroundings, make sure your singing isn't too loud, or too soft.

I would like to add the following to question #5: "How do I keep my Voice my from sounding nasal?"

Try this exercise: Try to humm by making an m sound with your lips and make the lips vibrate a little. Focus the sound on your lips and then release your lips and make an ahh sound. Make sure you are filling your lungs from the bottom and allow your stomach and sides to expand ( I would say breathe from your diagphram but this is confusing because your diaphram doesn't actually breath; it is the muscle that pulls your lungs down and forces air into them.) I'm sure there are several threads on breathing technique. Also make sure you stand with good posture with your shoulders raised. To do this, raise your hands in the air and then let them drop while keeping your shoulders in the same position. You don't want to breath from your chest but you do want to make sure that the cavity is fully open. I usually focus on trying to get more resonance in the my chest cavity so the sound doesn't resonate as much in the sinuses. Hope that helps.

Same here.

My parents and other people say I sing good, but, eh, I don't.

I love to sing! I sing every day! Singing is a hobby of mine!

I really thought this was all good advice. I am going to try it out. I plan on making a cd in the next couple of years so it will be a great help. thanks

What happened to the old VAT?

What happened to the old vocal advice thread? I had posted some advice in there about how to get the nasalness out of your voice. My information was not included in the new thread and my post in the old thread is gone.

Not sure. I split the screaming thread and the VAT since I was the original poster. Someone thanked me for 'teaching them to scream' and I couldn't handle that. It was never my intention for the VAT to be used as a screaming class or screaming thread. So, I split the two. And now there's one for singing and one for screaming.

But I don't have the authority or access to do anything to anyone elses posts. ???

BTW: I don't think Snizzle came up with all of that. I believe most of that was compiled by Rhonda in the original VAT sticky.
Okay, I haven't figured out all the mod tools yet, when I do I'm gonna sift through it and move the vocal stuff over here.
