  1. Hi – This is Karen Lyu. Hope this video helps you! FYI – Here is my correct
    website address: holisticvoicecoach . com BTW @stealthedscout – I totally

  2. What she says is accurate and basic. However it does apply to all high
    voice types. I guess to be specific to Tenors, Karen you would have to
    speak about the passagio. Anyway useful info. Thanks.

    @hrlrox I am an opera singer, and I have been singing for a very long
    time…trust me, I know what Im talking about. A tenor is the highest male
    voice (other than a countertenor). If you look at the music for a tenor and
    for a soprano, they have the same vocal range…therefore if you are in a
    choir, you can sing the tenor line…perhaps your choir was short on men,
    that is very common.

    The advice she gives works. Those are things I have been told by 3
    different voice teachers… one of which is very highly respected. However,
    too much of a good thing can be harmful. Singing should be no different
    than speaking. If you notice, when you speak your voice is totally at rest
    and you are relying on your breath naturally. Also, when you need to yell
    or for whatever reason higher your pitch when you speak, you naturally use
    your mechanism/breath correctly to do so!

  5. i have a question… lets say my voice cant get to very high pitches.. if i
    keep singing and practicing will it be able to reach those high notes or is
    it ur born that way and it doesnt get any higher because its physically

  6. I am a female – and have a natural tenor voice. I also know men whose
    natural range is high alto bordering on mezzo soprano. Gender shouldn’t be
    a factor in classifying vocal range.

  7. @TheYoungTenor100 I have to respectfully disagree as would several of the
    coaches I’ve worked with. Gender should not be the first consideration for
    determining tessitura and vocal fach. See YouTube videos from Vivaldi’s
    Women for outstanding examples of female tenor and bass voices. Again, I
    know several males whose natural tessitura is alto. Should they be forced
    to sing outside their best range simply because they’re male?

    I’d say step 5 is better achieved by ignoring this video. Shallow knowledge
    of breathing and the so-called benefits of placement. Horribly exaggerated
    and inacurate demonstrations.
    When will people realize that the lungs are located in the back of the
    chest, and that the ribs will spontaneously expand (along with the
    diaphragm, pushing the lower ribs out) during relaxed breathing. The belly
    can only go out if you lock the muscles along your lower ribs. The chest
    (front and back) is no restricted area – it is where all the potential lies!
    I sincerely wish people would stop telling people that a good breath for
    voice production goes into the belly. Such rubbish :/

  9. If you have never sung in your life before (apart from in the shower) than that is no problem at all, I have the lessons to get you singing with confidence in no time!

    Memorizing is taken into account a discovered ability and once you change into good at that you’ll be able to be taught as much as you can or need.
