How to Sing Rock with Classical Singing Technique / Free Vocal Tip / Kevin Richards

Pavarotti Covered Sound:

Kevin Richards shows you how to sing modern songs using a classical Bel Canto dampened larynx and open throat technique to give your vocals a boomy or big sound. For singing intensive singing styles like Rock or Metal music, you have to engage the body to create huge vocal sounds. Speech Level Singing just won’t do that for you – it was designed for correcting speech problems not singing!

Classical technique is perfect for singing heavy metal and hard rock IF you know how to take the elements of the classical singing style out of the technique. That is what I teach in the “Breaking the Chains” vocal course.

    From what I’ve been learning, I’m thinking training on classical technique
    would be a great foundation for rock singing – no need for the weight of
    classical upper range voice, but more seamlessly connected all the same,
    and stil wild rock screaming, but more substantive. Train with this
    technique, and then just sing. The techniques are solid. Happy birthyday!

    i mean what about ( Zen Of Breathing ) ( I Wanna Rock )

  3. Herping Derping says:

    This sounds alot like what Messiah Marcolin from Candlemass does , pretty
    cool explanation

  4. I can maintain the covered position when I’m practicing with open vowels,
    but when I try to sing my vocal tract collapses.

  5. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    You are letting the words get in the way of what you’re doing. It is only
    slightly different between singing an open vowel exercise and singing
    songs. “Covering” is really not a thing I advocate while singing songs –
    only when practicing.

  6. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    A relaxed or spinning vibrato is a combination of a diaphragm pulse and an
    oscillation of the larynx. You are tilted to heavy to the diaphragm side of

    There is a new video by Ken Tamplin titled “student belts to C6” – this is
    misleading and false. His student is not “belting” that C6. His is
    phonating in a lightly connected head resonance. “Belting” occurs where
    some mixing of lower/middle/upper resonances can happen. That cannot happen
    at C6.

    Just got your course BTC – I have purchased quite a few online singing
    programs -SLS, SS ETC– I am really enjoying your BTC- Much clearer
    explanations of everything- for me- really helps- glad you put this out!!

  9. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    Its only $75 – compared to others out there – that is extremely inexpensive

  10. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    I don’t really care if they are doing what I do here – but at least know
    what you’re talking about before making accusations.

  11. sam cuschieri says:

    I find Richard’s course very practical and useful when driving for an hour
    in every morning to work…….and btw thanks for the tip!

  12. whatthemeh says:

    You’re saying he’s not a good singer because he’s not quite doing the
    classical technique the way you’ve learnt?

  13. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    There is a lot of snobbery in the classical field. It’s kind of like
    competing pizza joints in Brooklyn – everyone one of them has a sign that
    says “the best pizza in NYC”. But who’s to say which is the best? – it’s
    all subjective.

  14. Minou Câlin says:

    classical technique is not subjective, there is objective reality to the
    mechanical requirement that classical singer must meet with his or her
    instrument such as acoustic projection over orchestra in a large hall that
    seats 1000s of people. you say you are giving examples of chiaro scuro
    sound but all your examples are nasal and overbright, you are singing with
    no balls. for real classical baritone sound listen to titta ruffo, leonard
    warren, cornell macneil.

  15. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    Your answer denotes a lack of experience in classical approaches to singing
    – there are several actually. There is the “multi register” approach, the
    “one register” approach, the “sinus sound” approach and more. All of them
    tout themselves as “the best way to sing”. Who is to say which approach is
    best or sounds the best? Its subjective to the singer, teacher and
    listener. Let’s get this straight – I am NOT a classical singer – I sing
    Rock. I trained with Bel Canto techniques.

  16. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    what you are talking about is affectation, embellishment and stylization. I
    am talking about the underlying technique NOT the end result sound of a
    trained opera singer who has done nothing but sing classical music his
    career. You are also judging me by the sound of a video camera on a YouTube
    video. Get your head out of your snobbish classical butt and stop trying to
    project classical standards on non-classical singing.

  17. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    Thank you. These “purists” just simply don’t understand that one can use
    classical singing technique and not end up sounding like an opera singer.

  18. laura aguilar says:

    Im in choir and got use to classical and cant sing contemporary as i use to

  19. diamondparadigm says:

    thank you for your free lessons. Some are so ungrateful!

  20. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    You are welcome.

  21. nimim. Marko Mikkilä says:

    This shit works wonders! Cheers!!!

  22. Kevin Richards I just came across your lessons and you have saved my
    life!!!… I had an amazing range when younger and was able to duplicate
    ANY voice without even blinking. I am 47 now and thought I was gonna enter
    my Geoff Tate days, poor guy btw I adore him and it hurts me to see him
    struggle nowadays. So bottom line Mr. Richards, I love you in a very
    heterosexual way. I believe so much that you are my salvation that if you
    farted into a CD and called it a lesson I would buy it lol

  23. Ilari Hämäläinen says:

    This is a great video and gives a lot of good ideas how to combine
    classical and “popular” singing. I just wanted to mention that I think you
    sang the 3rd so “blue” that it wasn’t the C5, but rather close to B4 🙂
    …this was just “splitting hair” kind of comment – so don’t worry. Thank
    you for all these great tips and lessons. Hopefully your official book and
    cds are just as good when it comes the time to purchase them. – ilari 😉

  24. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    I have a vocal course – “Breaking the Chains” that is available right now.

  25. Ilari Hämäläinen says:

    Yes thanks. I knew about it. Just didn’t purchase it yet. But I will 🙂

  26. kiribatiense says:

    Congratulations, man. I’ve watched many videos. Great lessons, very good
    demonstrations, knowing, very good feedback and a very nice voice (what an
    F sharp there, excellent, and what a bass, I envy that). In a few minutes
    I’ve understood the connected voice concept, what a falsetto is amongst
    others. I agree, the SLS method is quite incomplete. You have much more
    insight. Following you I was singing that A5 right away (I’ve singing all
    my life but I never cared much about exploring my high range). I hope you
    are doing great. Greetings.

  27. Bruna Galon says:

    Hey Kevin… I’m from Brazil and a classical singing student with much
    interest about popular singing (belting, rock…). Unfortunatelly in my
    college of music, the teachers just sing classic and don’t have much
    experience on the popular singing.. so your videos are helping me very very
    much 🙂 you shed light on some concepts that were very confused in my head
    …like head voice, falsetto, full voice…I’m studying with your tips and
    having results….thank you!!!

  28. Tyler Miles says:

    Hey Kevin. Thanks for the no BS videos. Ive purchased your Rock The Chains
    program and its great. Although im located in Los Angeles and looking for a
    good private vocal coach. Any recommendations of teachers with a similar
    style of teaching out here?

  29. James Byron says:

    I want to learn the sound you make in head voice. Can head voice be
    difficult to achieve if you belt chest too much? I am a male tenor singer.
    Thanks for the info in this video :)

  30. Nick Siepmann says:

    I’m kind of coming from the opposite direction – I’m coming from a
    classical vocal background, so I’m used to always singing in that more
    covered voice… Anything in particular to bear in mind when trying to
    singing in the more forward, rock voice (other than maintaining diaphragm
    support, of course)?

  31. Desmond Crafton says:

    I’m unsure what kind of tenor I am (probably Lyric or Spinto) and although
    throat complications I have a 5 octave vocal range. Must one master belting
    in chest register before executing head voice in high chest register or

  32. Desmond Crafton says:

    Is there a particular way to do that? Or is there a sign of such balance?

  33. Desmond Crafton says:

    Sort of like less strain in an E2 than before, hence making and E4 easier
    via the same technique?
