Listening to the two versions, the original is a LOT faster than yours- not sure whether that's deliberate but one effect is that you have to hold the notes much longer in the slower version, which possibly makes it seem more difficult than it needs to be. Your timing is good, and your voice itself sounds like it has a nice tone. I'm no singing coach but ...

Dropping your jaw is one part of opening up your voice, but it isn't the only part. How does your throat feel when you sing? Is it tight? Do you tense up your throat? Keep your throat relaxed and loose. It may feel like you'll lose control if you do, and it might make you sloppy for awhile, until you're used to it. But once you're used to it, singing as a ...

Here's an exercise that might help you distinguish the two. Start at the lowest note you can sing, and sing a scale upwards as high as you can possibly go. Or start at the top and go down. Sing loudly & smoothly, with no pause between notes (except to take a breath). There will be a spot somewhere in the middle that will feel like you're straining. It ...

If you want to write out pitches/duration/etc, go ahead and do so as you would any melody or harmony line, including breaks, breaths, and rhythms. Writing "Ah——" for lyrics is perfectly acceptable! It's also perfectly acceptable to both give written music to a vocalist and ask them if they'd like to improvise instead. Some like to, some don't. The written ...

From what you describe, I wonder if what you need to work on isn't singing, but listening. You hear that you go out of tune when you listen to the playback: good! The thing to do now is listen while you sing. Try singing along with the original track, but quietly, not full-voice. Listen more than you sing. Worry only about whether you match what the track ...

You sound OK for that style of music, but I can hear what you're saying... it's not "garbage" though without some context... how long have you been singing? How long have you been singing "seriously" ?... keep improving breath and diaphragm ... I've been running and singing at the same time at a park nearby, has improved my singing strength tremendously... ...

You could try reproducing the notes at the same time with some instrument (piano or guitar), practicing with triades and scales. I belive that is a good exercise to sing in tune in right notes. Try to find your tone.

It has to do with the fact that on a good night's sleep your vocal chords have had time to relax and had no strain or any kind of outside interference with them and they were able to just rest for a few hours.

Are you using headphones to hear yourself while singing? I have been taking the singing success lessons and find that the exercises in Discovering Your Voice help to warm up. After those exercises I sing alone with a mic and headphones. Sometimes recording myself too, in order to match my tone and style against the original.

It seems like you're having difficulties picking up a tune by hear and reproducing it with your voice. If it's the first time you're trying to do this, it's normal and no cause for worries. Like any sensory system in our body, singing requires "calibration". If you have never sung before, your vocal apparatus may not know what it needs to do to give each ...

Well it shows that you are singing in a proper way, its really normal in the beginning, just because you are lifting your soft palate, try to don't lift too much (till to get used to that position) when you are yawning you are lifting your soft palate as well and your brain gets confuse when you sing and do the same movement so try to sing as you are ...

I have never had this issue, so first would recommend to get more sleep. Singing is a taxing event, similar to an actual run or exercise, so need to be well rested. Another thing that comes to mind is to massage the back part of the throat and gradually move the two-finger circular massaging motion forward just adjacent to the adam's apple. Supplement that ...

I think what you need are vocal exercises to train that bridge between your head voice and your chest voice. No worries, all singers are stuck with this problem - even experienced ones! Try the exercises in this video, they should help! and also more on singing right here: http://superiorsingingsuccess.weebly.com/home/how-...

Haha I know the feeling of finally finding the mixed voice. I think what you could do(besides asking your vocal coach for help of course), is to try doing arpeggios with "gug" first so that you develop the proper balance between chest and head. Once you get comfortable with that, then you can should joining the notes together to smoothen and strengthen your ...

It depends on the kind of sound that you're looking for. If you need / want really specifically placed vocables, then you would notate the pitch, rhythm, and exact measure / beat among other info. If you don't care or it doesn't matter, then just give her the pitches for reference and let her go to town (read: using instinct). If you'd like her to ...

I'd say you're a bass. The bass range is generally something like E2-E4. E2 is only rarely used, so the low notes you're describing are similar to those of a bass. In terms of upper range, the highest I've had to sing, as a bass, is F4. So, you're probably a bass with a good falsetto and quite a large bass. Whether you're a bass or a baritone depends on ...

If your teachers don't consider it helpful to nail down a particular voice type at your current stage of training, do you think some random collection of people never having heard you will fare better? You need basic stamina across your accessible range anyway regardless of what you are going to end up singing since you can get hoarse on any untrained part ...

Do most hip hop and rap artists sing in correct tune with and in the same key as the instrumental part? I think the best answer here is Yes, many do, but maybe not most. The vocals for hip-hop and rap are often very different from pop vocals, but many times there is singing in the same key as the instrumental backing. Actual rapping is normally not in any ...
