  1. I cannot say enough good things about this video. Great full bodied singing
    too not just in terms of the sound, but that the whole body in involved in
    the production.

  2. Awesome video. Even your laughing and excited speaking is louder and more
    energetic than 99% of people I know! Are you a dramatic voice? Also,
    Victoria absolutely KILLED it, what a beautiful voice!!!

  3. Marnell is a VERY good teacher. We haven’t been working together for long,
    maybe I took about 10 lessons. And I still have issues but I feel like I’m
    literally growing with every lesson even untrained ear can hear it. 🙂 He
    explains everything in a very clear and understandable way. So I can
    practice on my own correctly and after every lesson he sends a recording of
    our lesson with some notes which is very helpful. And I like that he has a
    system it’s not like one lesson we learn one stuff another other ones
    without engraving what we worked on till it’s really done. He’s very
    attentive and passionate about what he does. So I strongly recommend him as
    a coach. Before I met him I struggled to hit E above man high C now I can
    hit A in full voice without even thinking. And I know it will even get
    better. He also sends a lot of additional materials for better
    understanding of the topic we’re working on.
    Thank you, Marnell, for being a good teacher for me :)

  4. Thanks Marnell, for taking so much effort into your singing videos! That
    way you are making things really clear to us. I’ll definitely keep watching
    your videos :)

  5. Hello Mr Sample! I found this great song and I don’t know how the singer
    sings it so well( Jackson Browne – Sky blue and black. It’s too low aaand
    too high in places=D Could you tell me what I could do to sing it maybe not
    exactly the way he does it, but at least not hidiously=D

  6. Thank you for all the amazing content you’re producing on this channel! The
    little breathing snippet here led me to try nose breathing while singing
    and it totally changed my perspective of how much air I really need for
    singing. 🙂
    Stupid brain always tells me to take these huge gulps of air through the
    mouth but it’s so much more exhausting to sing with all that excess air.

  7. This is good, but I’m not sure if this approach is ideal for all genres of

    Elliot Smith, Thom Yorke, and Curtis Mayfield are examples of many who
    spend a lot of time in the quieter areas of their voice. Making those
    areas sound good has taken as much effort as making loud sounds sound good..

    I find it useful to practice medium quiet to quiet volumes as well as loud
    volumes, although I agree focusing exclusively on this area would hinder
    development. Some people like myself would instinctively would push for
    volume without outside influence from a teacher or singing education,
    others instinctively whisper.

  8. Hello Marnell! I’ve recently stumbled across this one singer and the amount
    of dynamic control he seems to have over his voice is insane. I’m wondering
    if one wanting to learn this sort of dynamics should still approach it
    through the clear calling register or would falsetto be useful here?
    Honestly to my ears I cant even tell if the singer is just using falsetto
    with the mic proximity effect but it sounds pretty clear and awesome.


  9. But he must learn to hear very slowly and for a long time, until there is no failure of vibration in the tone and word, and it is all so impressed upon his memory that it can never be lost.

  10. For instance, studying to sing songs from starting to finish improves your studying expertise and your motor skills, by developing the coordination between your brain and your physique.
