    First comment! I got up too MINORMINE today. my voice started to get tired
    around this point so I stopped for today. Can’t wait to take live lessons.
    Still trying to find employment!

    I’ve been watching your online free tips and they are amazing! They’ve
    helped me a lot to improve my singing and increased my awareness of what
    actually i’m doing while singing… Also I’m singing “distorted” like james
    hetfield in his 80’s and 90’s days and i don’t feel much strain when i’m
    singing like that but i feel some strain and can pull about 6 to 7 songs
    like that before my voice starts to “weaken”. Next day when i wake up my
    voice is deeper and hurts a bit is that bad? Later it’s fine.

    WHO the fuck has a 6 octaves voice?

  4. Adam Lopez and Georgia Brown, neither of them are particularly amazing
    singers otherwise though, in my opinion at least

  5. VagAndrik says:

    I ve got one question; Same balance power applies to adding false vocal
    folds vibration on top of a note with clean voice in order to produce some
    kind of scream rasp?


    Solid Kevin! So right! Thanks!

    Hey, what happened to your classic, “See yuh!” at the end? You seem much
    more subdued. 

  8. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    Since I was uploading this live to YouTube I couldn’t use my exit music.
    The “see yah” would have looked kinda dumb when I them have to look down
    and click the “stop” button. I can fade out on my “see yah! into my outro
    music and look much cooler. Its all about “presentation”. 

  9. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    EVERYTHING with the voice is a matter of balance. Singing is a very complex
    coordination, thats why there are no short cuts or magic exercises. It
    takes time to learn the balance. Overlaying distortion on top of a clean
    tone is a very balanced technique.

  10. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    I meant more of people who can sing into the 6th octave like Adam Lopez,
    Georgia Brown, Mariah Carey etc. 

  11. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    you’re not warning down after that grueling session of distorted singing.
    See my videos on warm ups and warm down.

  12. Christian Dimitris says:

    ugh why arent you in’re the best teacher ive seen on
    here..and ive seen ALOT. lol 

  13. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    Thanks. I am grooming an associate teacher in Australia to teach my method.
    I’ll announce that when its finalized.

  14. Thanks for all the good tips, you’re amazing. Best, greg.

  15. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    Perhaps. After Australia I’m trying to groom some non-English speaking
    county teachers like Japan and China.

    Ok cool. This makes alot of sense. But a question. Im a tenor and have been
    doing the singing success and mastering mix program. Its help me everywhere
    except for when it came to singing. Whenever i sing it doesn’t hurt when i
    sing in a light mix but when ever i go to a balanced mix and a heavy mix it
    hurts and its hard to keep it there. And another thing. I didnt get much
    sleep today. I just woke up and felt fine and awake really early like 3am
    early. Is it bad to vocalize and practice.

  17. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    well you’ve hit the nail right on the head about Singing Success and their
    products – they will not teach you to sing in a heavy or any mix that
    requires breath support from the back muscles. Their programs are designed
    for a light mix sound where you use minimal air pressure and mostly
    laryngeal compression to achieve phonation. That is why you can’t sing with
    it outside a light mix – you haven’t strengthened the musculature to sing
    with anything more than a light mix. 

  18. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    I would say its best to vocalize a couple of hour after you wake up. Our
    voices perform best at last 4 hours after waking. I never advise people to
    practice after waking. Its OK to vocalize simple slides or sirens in the
    shower after waking but nothing of any duration or anything really loud or
    “pushy”. Give your voice some time to wake up, phonate in speech for a
    while. If someone wakes early to exercise, I would vocalize after that as
    the body will be warm and blood is flowing.

  19. kashifbilgrami says:

    Ok cool thanks for the tips. And does your program help with heavier mix
    tone because i have it when doing the workouts but whenever i actually sing
    songs its hard to keep in control. And i dont want to sing songs with a
    light mix where i need that power to add to my own style. And i really dont
    want to pay 250-350 dollars for a lesson on a heavier mix when they should
    have incorporated how to keep in in there dvd.

  20. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    Yes “breaking the chains” is designed to teach you how to sing with a heavy
    mix and build that musculature. Singing Success doesn’t have that in their
    program because they believe any heavy air pressure on the vocal cords
    makes tension and damage – which is completely untrue. 

  21. kashifbilgrami says:

    Well i have looked into it and done research and i see now why alot of
    singers have light voices. And why only a specific few have heavy voices. I
    just want to say thankyou so much for responding so fast to my questions.
    Your a very nice person and i will be looking in to buying your program
    soon. Need my next paycheck lol. And quick question have you heard of
    Melissa cross’s take on screaming and rasp. Im just wondering if thats in
    the program. And finally where did you learn all this from?

  22. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    In my opinion Melissa Cross’s DVDs are a complete ripoff. They are
    basically very long commercials for her with a little bit of very basic
    vocal exercises thrown in. Here DVDs DO NOT teach screaming or rasp as one
    would think. It is not in my program because its a very delicate thing to
    learn and must be monitored by a teacher. There are a million ways to do it
    wrong and hurt yourself and only a couple to get it right and that needs to
    be monitored by a professional. 

  23. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    I learned everything I know from my past vocal teachers, my own singing
    experience, my own vocal research over the past 15-20 years and teaching in
    general. I read an immense amount of material on the subject, experiment
    with my voice a lot and discover things. Half of learning to sing is
    through experimentation – learning your instrument, playing around with it,
    making silly sounds – and not being afraid to sound silly.

    How can I control my voice ?

  25. lijstthuispiano says:

    Hi Kevin, Thanks for all your uploads. Really helpful info! Regarding your
    comment on experimenting with your voice, this needs to be done in
    combination with having a teacher who can listen and observe your voice as
    it changes right? Or at least my teacher sometimes indicates that I’m
    sounding better, even though in my head it sounds pretty light and thin
    (higher notes). -Marc

  26. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    Yes, experimentation with your voice should happen at home and with your
    teacher. Part of your coaching sessions should be experimenting with your
    voice – it shouldn’t all be structured. To grow you have to take chances
    and test your voice to see what it will take. Push it a little.

  27. lijstthuispiano says:

    Thanks for your reply! I actually took your advice before even reading it
    :). Can’t wait for the feedback of my teacher. By the way, perhaps it would
    be interesting to make a video regarding the size of your practice room and
    how this could negatively impact your singing? I at least noticed for
    myself that singing in a room with bad acoustics for me leads to shouting
    (because I am missing the feedback). Just a thought of course (you are
    doing all the work after all). -Marc

  28. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    Yes the environment in which you practice can make a difference in how you
    vocalize. You need an area with some natural reflective surfaces so you get
    some slapback of high frequencies to your ears. Without that “ring” in a
    room your voice will sound dull and probably slightly off pitch. Singing in
    a room devoid of any “ring” or reverb can trick your ear into thinking you
    suck – and you may not.

  29. lijstthuispiano says:

    Ah great, thanks for that! Btw a new exercise we have been doing to make my
    “lazy” tongue do more work, is putting your thumb between your teeth and
    then say the words of the song. Goal is to articulate clearly without
    leaving teeth marks on your thumb (iow only the tongue can move). This is
    supposed to also help prevent the tongue from retracting. I though you
    might not know this exercise and be interested (you seem to always like all
    related to singing):)

  30. Hanna Redhead says:

    Great tips about fine tuning and tweaking. In the process now :).

    For many years I sang in choir and only in “head voice” (like a little
    angel haha). But then about 8 years ago I was asked to sing a verse solo
    and when I was practicing only air came and hardly no sound at all. I
    hadn’t developed my “chest voice” and it was almost like started singing
    from the beginning again.

    So I quit singing in choir and started taking singing lessons and my third
    teacher taught me to start from my talking voice and there was my base. My
    base was lower than I thought because I always sang as soprano 1 in head
    voice. She later told me I was better than all her students at the
    University but that I was only using 10 % of my voice. She’s crazy I
    thought. Do I have 90 % more to develop? Mindblowing. Still can’t grasp

    So now I’m letting it take time and I’m exploring, tuning and tweaking. My
    biggest issue is that I’m so afraid to show myself and be vulnerable, but
    it has gotten better. In the beginning when I sang solo my whole body
    freezed like a sculpture. Now it’s only the neck and sometimes the lips.
    Crazy. Maybe other people experience this too? :)
