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.

Freddie Mercury

Another topic since im already here :D
How did freddie learn to sing that way?I know he was a born music genius and he always had a perfect pitch but I heard in one video where brian may said that when he first met freddie his singing voice was strong but very poor technique and he sounded like a goat but within few years he learned how to sing the way he sang most of his life.I also heard he never had a vocal coach or anything so how in the world did he figure it out all on his own.I feel like there is something special about figuring things out on your own and thats what made singers back then that good.Freddie is my favourite singer and i really envy his voice and his singing so I would love nothing more but to sound as close to freddie as possible.How do you copy someones style without sounding like you try to sing exactly like that certain singer?What are some artistic things special to freddies singing that you could use in your own singing?
