  1. thank you for your tips!, Sophie! Could you make vowel chart which shows
    which vowels transforms into what. And another question…I really
    understand the concepts of vowel changing but often I cannot apply it
    directly to a song without having to think about vowel chaning all the
    time. simple tips from you without thinking too much and still doing the
    narrowing?

  2. Nice video, but there’s some unsubstantiated information in it. I’m all for
    helpful videos, and there’s no doubt that your techniques help with high
    notes. But, it’s pretty well researched that chest voice range dominantly
    resonates in the throat and not the mouth (above larynx to behind the
    tongue, hence why you feel it down in to your chest), and head voice range
    dominantly resonates in the mouth (hence why you can feel it in your face).
    The mixture of chest and head is not a 3rd placement, but a difference in
    the distribution of resonance (largely the 2nd, 3rd and 4th harmonics for
    the geeks). This is also accompanied by the ‘mix’ of interaction of the
    vocal cord muscles. Putting the lips forward can allow better distribution
    of resonance between the throat and the mouth, and essentially stop the
    larynx from raising with the pitch to keep the resonance in the throat.
    It seems a small change in information, but it guides vocal training much
    better and faster if you know where the resonance actually sits, especially
    for the advanced singer who doesn’t need to close so much to ascend.
    Science and actual research sheds so much light these days and guides
    pedagogy. We need to embrace it more, rather than repeating the 90%
    accurate ideas of our previous mentors. I’ve totally been there.

  3. Hi Sophie,
    It actually is possible to broaden vowels without falling out of the proper
    resonance. Even if one wants to narrow his or her vowels, the way you show
    it here is too exaggerated and is actually darkening the vowels too much
    which is making you lose some of the clarity and intelligibility of your
    words! So as a disclaimer for those watching. You can sing with broadened
    vowels without straining but even if you want to modify your vowels the
    examples given here are exaggerated. Modifications should be much more
    subtle so that you can keep the clarity of your words in place. Remember,
    more than anything else, singing is about balance, so make sure that you
    don’t take any idea too far. This will imbalance your voice!
