    Knurdle–its like the “Kermit the frog” affect, where your tongue presses
    against the back of your throat. 🙂

    This is a great video Sophie. It is very educational! I hear a lot of
    professional artists do this Knurdle effect! Maybe I could get some advice
    about my voice? My voice is kind of small and weak. I’ve had professional
    training but I still can’t get a good-sounding/strong voice. It’s weird
    because it sounds okay to me when I’m singing, but then if I record myself
    and hear the playback, I get terribly discouraged because I think it sounds
    horrific. HELP!

  7. I thought that when the tongue lay down on the mouth, the tongue root
    pressed against the larynx and produced the “kermit sound” is the

    Hey AJ, thanks for watching. I understand how that can be discouraging. Try
    to keep in mind that if an exercise isn’t working, ditch the exercise and
    find one that does. Make sure you find what works for YOU. My Vocal Primer
    is an excellent tool for vocalizing on your own, with many different
    exercises so you can find the ones that work for you. You can purchase this
    from the website in this video’s description. Keep singing!

    Kimbra only looks down to do a loop. Her and Christina Aguilera both have
    the fat tongue forward, and they both have a slight tendency to look upward
    for belting a high note. Christina looks down quite a bit live for high
    notes. They do both have some quirks which are more a result of the styles
    they sing in than a mistake in technique.

    The exercises are helpful.

    How can I balance tongue tension but also neutralise my larynx and have
    that kind of “dopey” sound when I’m belting in my mix to have a more mature
