Welcome to The Voice Connection Sound Off; a forum for users of books like Raise Your Voice, Melody to Madness, The Ultimate Breathing Workout, and Unleash Your Creative Mindset, as well as a place for Vendera Vocal Academy members to interact.

This message board was created so that singers could come together and "sound off" to help support each other during vocal development and the creative process of unleashing the creative spark that occurs when writing and producing music. Currently, myself and vocal coaches Ben Valen, Ray West, and Ryan Wall are here to respond periodicially to your questions, with new vocal coaches coming soon. But, feel free to help each other too:)

This board is here for you to ask questions about my and my fellow coach's books, videos, and MP3 programs, as well as offer others help with our vocal techniques. You may also post videos of yourself and your band to share your music and ask for critiques.

Please refrain from negative comments, profanities, spamming, and inappropriate criticisms of vocal methodologies, vocal coaches, and singers. All negative posts will be deleted and subject to banning without question. I will not respond to negative posts, because, as Mark Twain once said, “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” With that said, positive criticism is welcome because that is how you'll grow as a singer during the training process.

vowel modfication

Hey guys im a beginner here, learning to sing high notes, first reading of the breqthing and the support, although i know it before i bought the book because ive searched Raise your Voice ebook and i read the preview of it and i was suprised by the results, because before i go here in this vocal academy ice searched many vocal coaches like brett manning, ken tamplin, felicia ricci, kevin richards, and many more at that time ive followed brett manning for 3 because his methods also wroked for me but the only problem is if i get higher in my voice it is very hard to sustain, and very thin ,and also i want to sing longer notes without tiring my throat, hahahahhaha but my concern here is do we need to modify our vowel when singing higher that singing success also use?

Re: vowel modfication

Welcome:) Here is what I suggest. let's not worry about vowel modification just yet. Spend the next four weeks, 6 days per week, doping the three basic Isolation exercises as I describe in RYV, stick to the one vowel I suggest. Once you feel you have a grasp of them, then we can get into vowel modification:)

Re: vowel modfication

Sounds play an important role in our life. Especially vowels. There's no doubt that it would be a great topic for essay or dissertation which you can find on
