  1. You are so cool, man ­čÖé You are like the most wise and humble vocal coach
    here on youtube. You really have the vocation to teach :B That’s admirable.
    Also I love that you can always demonstrate veeery accurately everything
    you explain.

  2. This video reminds me of a time in college. A classmate discovered I was a
    singer by paying attention to the way I talked. We were having a
    conversation about class when he asked me if I was a singer. I was
    surprised because I had not told anyone and there was no way for him to
    know. He said that my voice sounded very controlled, smooth, and even
    melodic when I spoke. He said I bet you would have a hell of a voice if you
    did sing. After that I chuckled and told him yes that I was a singer.

  3. kevin since ive been using your course it been amazing since it been a
    while i have done much putting it into song but i live in florida if i pay
    for a weekend intensive would that be to advanced for me?

  4. Probably not. We would work on applying the techniques to singing songs.
    It’s not as hard as people think but not as easy either. Contact me offline
    to discuss a weekend intensive some more..

  5. Yes, some people can pick up on someone’s manner of speech and if they are
    well versed in the arts will assume you are either a singer or actor.

  6. Thanks dude. I have referred some people over to your channel that ask me
    about screams and distortion.

  7. Thank you. Being able to distill and explain things to people in a clear
    and simple manner is a gift I’ve always had, I’ve just turned into a
    profession.

  8. Hi Kevin. Should we have a feeling of the “downward push” while singing? I
    was told to imagine belly pushing out and down while singing to slow the
    diaphragm from ascending too quick.

  9. in a way “yes” and “no. The belly does NOT push out – it stays neutral – it
    doesn’t push or or suck in. It stays flat. You should feel a tightening of
    the area just to the sides of your stomach all the way around to your back.

  10. The “push down” is not other muscles preventing the diaphragm from
    ascending, you are pushing the diaphragm down by itself.

  11. do you have any videos of you just singing like a whole song? i’ve followed
    your channel for a while and i haven’t just heard you sing anything in full.

  12. The thing that confuses me, is when teachers talk about conserving support,
    for tough notes in the phrase. What exactly is being conserved? Like, let’s
    say you’re singing something in around a3 – e4 and then the phrase
    transitions to notes around f4 – c5. Do you have to “engage” your core
    muscles more when going into the higher register? Is the diaphragm
    “pushing” more at that point, so you have to compensate for it?

  13. You’re not really conserving “support” but rationing air. You are
    conserving air, not your support muscles. Yes, you have to give nudge to
    the support muscles for higher notes to keep the vocal cords connected and
    stabilized – but it’s only a nudge not a stomp. The idea is to balance
    airflow but adjusting your support in small amounts for a given phrase or
    series of notes.

  14. and it works in reverse – but training your singing voice, your speaking
    voice should become clearer and louder.

  15. Here’s a quote from Franco Tenelli: “The higher one goes, the more
    dynamical opposition one should practice, using the diaphragm.” Is this
    what you mean by “balancing airflow”?

  16. “dynamical opposition one should practice” is the key quote. Practice. In
    singing however its not always more opposition, sometimes its just
    maintaining the opposition. But yes that’s what I mean by “balancing
    airflow”.

  17. He’s got several. There is a christmas thing he does on his channel with
    nothing but his voice (and it sounds pretty darn good, IMO).

  18. Thanks dude much appreciated! I’m trying to get more into promotion on
    facebook so i think i’m just going to start sharing your playlists along
    with single videos since there’s so much good stuff here haha. Do you have
    a page or just your websites?

  19. hey there!! Thank you a lot for your videos!! They are really helping me
    with the vocal breaking stuff. I have a little question if you don’t mind:
    I have the voice sword of like the guy in the video ( watch?v=N9dstnPlET8 )
    all my friends say so.. my problem is that even with your videos, I can’t
    reach the highs without pushing my chest voice :/ so what comments do you
    have about Tyson Ritter (the guy video) about his passaggio, his head and
    chest? Thank you!!

  20. Tyson is a weak singer outside his chest range – he pops into falsetto a
    lot. He doesn’t really have a passagio or head voice – he is singing in all
    his natural range. He has a whiny, thin speaking voice. Good for the pop
    they do but not much else. Weak singer overall.

  21. +Rock the Stage NYC hey my coach said the compression in the lower
    abdominal muscles will be more around front…like lightly putting all the
    weight of abdominal muscles on the pelvis bone….but you are saying it
    will be side and back!! ..i have a problem!!´╗┐

  22. What, no examples (singing) from your teachings? This is 9 minutes of my
    life I’ll never get back. Funny how you disabled ratings for this video
    because I would have thumbed it down. Thxbai…´╗┐

  23. Hi I have question, when I sing high note I can sing it but it feel like it
    block by something can you help me?
    Thank you~ ´╗┐

  24. Hey Kevin. Rmb me? I was wondering, based on this video, if we need mouth
    resonance instead of throat resonance to belt or else it will be like
    shouting? And does this apply to mixed voice belting. I just got a vocal
    coach and we are training low notes but i am learning and developing on my
    mix at home while training low. ´╗┐

  25. Hi Kevin. Great video. Looking through youtube at ‘breathing for singing’,
    you’re the only coach I’ve found who’s actually given a good description of
    the muscular sensation of breath support. Really helpful. Thanks´╗┐

  26. Interesting..Ive always been under the impression that the belly goes out
    and you then hold it out while pushing like a bowl movement (as some vocal
    coaches have described)..However Ive never noticed this does anything at
    all..I can make the same sounds with the same tone,power,etc..if I “push
    down” or if I blow all my air out and have virtually no air.So I guess Im
    either doing something wrong,or the whole diaphram singing is a myth..Your
    take seems a bit different.I guess Ill have to give it a try;)´╗┐

  27. ” Sensei Kevin, I have both your vocal programs and Sensei Rob Lunte’s
    program and just wanted to say that I get do much out of the programs and
    watching and re-watching your videos as well as Sensei Rob’s program and
    videos. Even though I am not an extreme metal type singer and sing mainly
    for my own enjoyment, your expertise has taught me,and continues to teach
    me so much. You both are master teachers who display not only knowledge but
    the ability to demonstrate what you teach. Thank-You for sharing your
    knowledge and inspiring many of us who appreciate your dedication and
    efforts´╗┐

  29. One would suppose that singing in a group is easier than singing solo, simply because it could be easier to mix in. And probably sure small errors you make could also be covered up by other singers.

  30. The outcomes had been published in Nature Communications You can hear and see the finches being taught the best way to sing within the video below.
