Quick video on Support. And what some perceive as support is a squeeze. Not actually support. I fell into the trap years ago but found my way out. Hope this helps.

    I also wanted to say the breathe always has to be moving constantly.

  2. Got the Journey in the back on youtube. Good man! 🙂

  3. In all seriousness- You get to the point so quickly. So many teachers out
    there just beat around the point until their point is lost. Nice one
    Daniel. Thanks.

  4. Cool video, Daniel, i totally get what you mean, I was doing that thing for
    a couple of months until a teacher told me to not sing so operatic but to
    bring the tone forward, at my teeth and lips. So when I do “mm” with closed
    mouth I am supposed to feel my lips and front teeth tingling or vibrating.
    Is that correct? And what about higher notes B, C, D, should they also
    resonate that way? Your hair grew awesome since last video !

    Duchito I have a hard time humming in my upper voice. I feel is causes
    strain but if it works for you that’s great. As far as high c ‘s and that
    area don’t try and tighten my stomach as much as I just push it out like a
    baby.

    good voice Dan and nice to hear some advice on style given sensibly 🙂

    of course you could goto my site, call me, email me skype me..whatever you
    like..

  10. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    Technically the “heavier” tone you demonstrate is not “incorrect” – it’s
    just another fold compression level from the Steve Perry demonstration.
    There are 3 different levels of fold compression – light, medium and heavy
    and each have their own application. The open throat sound you make at 5:38
    is simply an open throat, darkened tone. That sound is about timbre and
    tongue position and inot made from squeezing the folds; it’s from sub
    glottal compression which comes from support.

  11. daniel formica says:

    Actually I am squeezing there. I know this because its a thing i do with my
    throat for effect and it feels a certain way. I know what you are talking
    about and it sounds similar but has much more overtones and isn’t as
    taxing. Although i wouldnt suggest singing Journey like that. As you ascend
    the cords get thinner(vibrating mass gets smaller) and resonance takes over
    for sound if you wanna sail up there ala steve perry, tony harnell, ryan
    shaw etc..Well thats how i look at it.

  12. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    well yes, obviously something like Journey, Bruno Mars, Prince would be
    sung with much less compression and more resonance from the sinus cavity
    than that heavy, open throated dark (classical) configuration. Trying to
    sing in upper mix with that classical sound is much too heavy. One can sing
    high C’s with that heavy sound but it takes a very long time to master and
    even then it doesn’t sound appropriate for modern music.

    This dude knows what he’s talking about! Awesome lesson today Daniel!
    Cheers from NZ

  14. daniel formica says:

    thanks man! looking forward to working with ya!

  15. Ido Natan says:

    Thanks! that support AKA Laugh is EXACTLY what I was looking for for about
    a month! SO SIMPLE! Thanks! also, thumbs up for the WHISTLE in the other
    video :)

  16. justgotherenow says:

    Thank you, Daniel! You are really articulate and helpful in your
    explanations. I am learning so much from your material. Inspires me to
    continue practicing! Thank you for all you do!

  17. When I laugh my stomach goes in and not out the way you show, when using
    support a lot of teachers teach that the stomach goes in when supporting
    the tone. Could you please elaborate a bit more on how your stomach goes
    out when using support? It seems a bit odd that you expand while inhaling
    and then expand some more when exhaling

  18. Polentaccio says:

    Nicely done, Ray Gillen was a monster singer. Been checking out your vids,
    great stuff. There are too many “singing coaches” that can’t actually sing.
    Imagine that. Nice to see someone with technique and chops.

  19. Andrea Herrera says:

    what do you charge for skype lessons?

  20. MRKLjinjang says:

    Hi, do you sing on the inhale or exhale ?

  21. Daniel, great video. I have a question though – if we want a slightly
    darker, classical-like sound, how do we know that it is a healthy sound and
    not a wrong one?

  22. Hubert Torzewski says:

    That ‘incorrect” example sounds very correct and nice for me, even better
    than the “correct” one.. It’s darker, louder, more open and powerful –
    just more operatic. The “correct” one is better for pop/rock though.

  23. i can feel what you are saying my chords have more pressure when im
    pushing, but ive always wondered why my falsetto sounded completely
    opposite and disconnected. now the falsetto and lower range feel smoother
    and similar in relaxed pressure. thanks for the distinction.

  24. JohnProph says:

    that Badlands cover is one of the coolest things ever brother! you dont
    hear too many people covering Ray Gillen. I learned headvoice by trying to
    sing ‘Seasons’
