  1. Fantastic and clear video, Marnell. What happens when your native language
    is Spanish? I have been told to put on a British accent when I sing…will
    that help?

  2. Mykey McK says:

    You kinda kill “somewhere over the rainbow” for me. Not that you cant sing
    it well. I just dont feel riffs and runs should be used so much. Its a nice
    simple song that doesn’t need those extra’s to sound good.

  3. Bruno Pires Mucheroni says:

    When i move like you did, i feel some lock, like “tic” when it come to
    right side, its normal?

  4. PURA PARA says:

    i cant add in any compression, otherwise it gets tight..

  5. Nicholas DiPasqua says:

    Thanks , lots of help :)

  6. Yale Willis says:

    I felt like throwing a shoe at you for those vocal runs. lmao.


    Dear Marnell Sample, I learn the way you teach, thank you very much for
    posting videos.
    I can’t join your website list because there might be some problem on it,
    that’s what I see.
    This sign-up form is not available. Please contact this site’s Webmaster
    for assistance.

    Hi Marnell,
    I couldnt subscribe when I went on your link for the 6 free videos. It said
    that: the sign up form is not available….

  9. Jason Peirce says:

    Marnell, I have just started watching your videos and I am very happy with
    your simplistic, yet effective style of teaching (If I ever get good enough
    for voice lessons, you are at the top of my list). And despite what others
    have said about your rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” I
    appreciated how you used riffs/runs to demonstrate a neutral larynx even
    while singing in a more complex manner. Good work :)

  10. theAbeElement says:

    wow watching you sing is mesmerizing! Incredible tutorial, much
    appreciation :)

  11. Julien Castle says:

    I rarely watch a singing video with super clear explanations like that! 🙂

  12. MegaCityPatrol says:

    Err my hyoid bone really clicks and creaks when I try and move it. Does
    that indicate a lot of tension?

  13. Muhammad Agus Setiawan says:

    This is the best larynx lesson I’ve seen.
    I hope u success and continue to share your knowledge for us

  14. George Lensgraf says:

    u just may be the most indepth free online singing teacher anywhere on u
    tube. u probably save people tons of money they dont have to sing better.i
    need better vocals for my songwriting. i have a way with words and melody
    for songwriting but not good singing to go with it. im average at best.

  15. Joli Tafo says:

    my larynx moves even when i sing in my chest voice what should i do?
    my larynx doesnt move only when i sing in low notes

  16. How much should the larynx normally move ? Should it goes a bit high when
    you sing higher and lower when you sing low ?
    Great video by the way

  17. Wilburne Mathurin says:

    Great video man, very helpful. You have a nice voice. Your explanations
    were very clear and I found some humor in the way you explained them too.
    Just one question, how can one maintain a neutral larynx when singing

  18. This is by far THE BEST vocal tutorial on the internet! The depth you go
    into is Brilliant! I have developed a voice disorder Spasmodic Dystonia.
    Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I would have a voice
    problem. Your voice effects everything you do in life. I am thinking if I
    learn about how the voice works and learn how to use my voice (again or in
    a different way) I might be able to lessen the effects of this disorder.
    Thank you for taking the time to teach this. I never knew there was so much
    to learn about using your voice. Absolutely outstanding instruction and

  19. Ishan Sharma (Tech - Ads) says:

    How can I imagine abduction and adduction in vocal folds while going high
    or low? Excellent video BTW. Your videos have always been one of the best
    videos I have watch for vocal lessons.

  20. Kiana Robinson says:

    Hey Marnell, I am 14 and I’m in chorus at school. I realized that my voice
    has switched from being a soprano to alto. It wasn’t really sudden. With
    that though, and a little time before, I had exhaustion in my vocal chords
    sometimes it wouldn’t be my voice but my jaw. I already knew that the jaw
    is from tension (working on that) but for my voice, I was just wondering if
    you had any advice on the situation if it’s a issue or not.

  21. Primož Vidovič says:

    Should you feel any movement in the laryngeal space when doing soft OR
    vigorous breathing exercises, such as hisses? Would the slight elevation of
    the larynx indicate holding back breath with your throat as opposed to the
    abdominal muscles?

  22. Mark Mark says:

    This dude seems cool, but he seems kind of angry too lol

  23. Jamiah Harris says:

    OMG I just enjoyed your singing

  24. Jokubas Sunaitis says:

    Didn’t take me a month

  25. Scrapizm Kujahyun says:

    I got it over night, thanks…

  26. Aaron Mason says:

    i moved it left to right and it clicked a couple times :/

  27. I would’ve really like’d to see you sustain the note in over the rainbow
    instead of riffing

  28. Mike Sayre says:

    Great video. Well-explained and full of useful tips.

  29. Craig Zeital says:

    just stated watching … didn’t think it that helpful to add loads of
    styling to the correct version of rainbow

  30. Frances Castley Music says:

    this was really helpful

  31. Kaisa Kätkä says:

    Thank you, thank you so much!!! ♡

  32. Worms Hip Hop says:

    some jazzy over the rainbow

  33. TheMusicZone says:

    Great video. I always considered myself incapable of singing but that is
    only because of strain. I practised alongside your video and was amazed at
    my resonance.

  34. kakashi1090 says:

    I don’t feel like focusing on your larynx is going to make you
    automatically do vocal runs. That requires a bit more skill than just the
    isolation of one part of your voice but, hey, good lesson, sounds good too
    man. Keep it up.

  35. I’m a Swede and can only agree on the O vowels :P
