I’ve bought your other two CD’s and I was curious In your professional opinion should I listen to the “Ear pitch & Training” and the “Pure Vowels” before the other two??
Hello Mam, I think your the nicest vocal trainer i know of im 14 and im experiencing some changes in my voice that i dont like. I use to sing rilly high and im scared my dreams of becoming a singer would be shattered into pieces. Hope to work with you in future. Thanks for reading.
Do you have personal lesson? Or classes?
Hi Ariella! I have a question for you. I am a recent college graduate with a degree in vocal performance. I am teaching voice lessons to a student right and I am struggling as to how to go about teaching her vibrato. From listening to her sing, I don’t hear any vibrato present in her sound. Do you have any techniques/teaching methods you could share with me? Any advice you can give me would be very much appreciated! Sincerely, Anandi
Hello Ariella, I live in Costa Rica, and I started a small church choir a few weeks ago. I have very low music background and I’m just learning to play piano. I’m interested in enhancing my individual choir members voice quality, tuning and overall performance. What ideas and recommendations can you give me and what should I purchase from you since all the members will not be able to access the internet and follow your online program.
I have been singing for most of my life, but I’ve always had strange random issues… like the constant need to clear my throat, or how choppy my voice will RANDOMLY sound. I’ve taken private voice lessons whenever my family could afford them, but I’ve never really had consecutive training over an extended period of time. My last voice teacher actually told me I had some sort of damage done to my vocal chords and that I should stop singing altogether until I finished vocal therapy with her. However, it was $75 a lesson for that, and I couldn’t afford it, so I didn’t continue. This was in January. Since then, I’ve kept singing (I perform around the Salt Lake Valley), but my voice feels so strained and I’ve having a horrible time trying to warm-up my voice, it’s like none of my old exercises can help me with my higher range…(another A and above) (i’m an alto). I have a massive concert I have to sing at on Saturday, and I’m terrified I’m not going to have a voice. What can I do? Oh, and I’m highly interested in your CD’s. Which would you recommend? You can check out my channel for my style of singing!
Thanks so much,
Your voice should never hurt or feel strained. The first thing I would do if I were you would be to go to a laryngoligist. They specialize in looking at the larynx and voice mechanism. You need to find out what is going on inside before you move ahead and cause permanant damage. Perhaps you have nodules which are blisters on your vocal chords. You don’t want to sing on them because they can calcify and really cause problems. I would start with the medical perspective. Let me know the outcome and I can try and help you from there.
Does the appearance of veins in the neck when singing a bad sign.. I see it in the professionals as well.
That is an interesting question. I don’t think appearance of veins is ideal, but I have seen it in many singers as well. It means that there is some unnecessary straining going on in the neck. The support should be lower in the abdomen and legs. Your neck and throat muscles ideally should be free to release the sound. This does not mean that there are not good singers who do this and still sing well. But ideally you want to put the stress and support lower in the body. I would have to have a specific example to judge the severity of the issue.
Please can you give me some advice. I am a 15 year old male singer. I love singing and really do see it as my future. The problem i have is that my voice is now starting to break and as such i feel as though my vocal range is becoming very limited. Can you please take a look at one or two of my videos and give me some feedback. I have had a few singing lessons but decided to stop as the teacher seemed to not have any structure to my lessons and they were very expensive.
I am now really worried that if i keep singing i will end up causing more damage and if i stop i will lose the ability to sing completely. Please can you advise me of what is best in your own opinion.
Yo really have a great voice. The minute I started to listen to your video I started to smile, a true talent. There definitely some things you can do to work on your voice. You are singing well, but you putting unnecessary pressure on your chords which is causing your larynx to rise causing that cracking or vocal fatigue. I wish you lived in LA because I would love to teach you.
I offer a service on my site www.voicelessonstogo.com. You can sign up for vocal assessments from me.
I am written to daily requesting my advice on peoples voices which I love, but I do as a professional voice teacher need to charge for my services and time. There are different packages offered on there 1 time to ongoing.
I think I can help you out, I know what you need to do to get that pressure off your chords.
anyway, good luck on your singing, you have something special.
