You’re not the only one who lost up to half of your vocal range

Both boys and girls tend to lose access to some notes during and after puberty.  But the guys have always had it the worst.

But what if you didn’t have to lose all those high notes?

 

There are 2 ways for any guy to KEEP them

(You’re really not gonna like the 1st one)

 

What’s the 2nd way?

It’s by becoming the vocal equivalent of an athlete.

It has NOTHING to do with your vocal cords

Ever since we first discovered that we had vocal cords we think everything we sing is because of them.

But the real work – the engine behind the machine, is vocal muscle.

And vocal muscle functions no differently than any other muscle you go to the gym to train.

 

Just one tiny, itty-bitty problem.

 

Unlike the number of gyms nearby, until the past few years NO ONE had access to a real, proven ‘vocal-gym’: what medical science has known for decades the voice needs to recapture those lost notes.

 

So are they everywhere now?

Sorry. 

If they were, I wouldn’t be doing what I do.

 

Less than 8% of the entire body of vocal education includes a proven scientific process to put the voice back where it was before stopped accessing those notes.

And….let’s just say that, even as a professional singer…it ain’t easy to come by

…or afford.

 

How the 2nd way works

Let’s take it from what medical specialists who study the singing voice have proven:

When a male or female voice sings 3+ octaves, two groups of vocal muscles trade off like a bicep and tricep.

Vocal surgeons who specialize in work with singers call this a ‘natural voice’…literally because it’s the capability 98% of us are born with.

(& you’d have a doctors note if you weren’t)

 

If all of the vocal muscles are strong, flexible and coordinated the result is minimum of 3 octaves.

We’re talking about being able to sing soft OR strong without pain or strain on EVERY SINGLE NOTE for 3 octaves!

 

But just like if you went to the gym and only trained parts of muscle groups, inadequate vocal training just can’t cut it.

So to make up for what can’t happen, they all teach a mix of man-made rules that manipulate the voice to try to add something to it.

It’s like having one weak leg, but trying to balance out your body weight by walking with your opposite arm out holding a barbell all day.

You’d get closer to balanced, but it would cause more problems than it solves in the long run.

 

Unfortunately that’s what happens to the vast majority of singers.

Why did so many guys in 70’s bands hit notes almost no one can now?

Great question!

When one singer charts with a sound that’s new or different, the mad rush is on to sound just like them.

But just like inadequate vocal training, singers who try to copy another sound have to manipulate their voices to even get close.

And any kind of manipulation in the vocal anatomy is just like a loose wrench in the machine.

Even when it results in a similar sound, it usually comes at the cost of new strain, missing notes, loss of some ability or, most often with singing high: losing your gorgeous booming bottom notes.

But don’t some singers just ‘do it’ naturally?

Yes!

And guess what vocal surgeons find when they look into the vocal process in singers who DO:

…nobody screwed up their natural voice!

 

And with so many of us wanting to not just reach more notes but actually sound just like someone with a different set of vocal cords, that is becoming more and more rare.

How to keep it if you got it – & get it if you don’t

If you currently sing 3+ octaves and every note feels good – LOOK OUT!

Never forget that guessing at how to do anything with the voice is never any more successful than the 1st guy who tried to deadlift without being in shape or having a spotter.

 

If you don’t know how to KEEP that range, you’ll go the way of so many singers who find it gone and have no clue why.

In our upcoming training series I’m going deep into how to be your own vocal advocate – how to know what to believe for yourself, and how to protect that golden voice. (Get on the waitlist to get dates/times once we announce them)

 

Don’t have that kind of range yet?

The best thing you can do is to stop listening to ALL singing advice until you know how to tell the good from the bad.

Knowing that is the most important thing singers need to know.

 

In the upcoming training GAME CHANGER I’m going to show you what my extremely rare vocal education taught me that no one else knows – why no one is telling you – and how to be put back in charge of protecting and perfecting your own voice.

THE #1 WAY TO TELL…

if any note you sing is ‘balanced’

 

When the vocal muscles are able to do what they were created to do this will happen on all 3+ octaves of your natural range.

(It’s in there!) 

 

The first step is to get familiar with what it FEELS like when the vocal machine is doing it right.

If a note is ALL THREE of these:

  • EASY – free of any strain, pain or overt effort (feels effortless)
  • SOLID – you can go soft to strong without any change in the ease of the feel (feels stable), and
  • FLEXIBLE – you can hold a note – go into vibrato (or any styling tool) and back without any change in the ease or solidity of the note (feels like it wants to party)

THAT’S what true ‘vocal balance’ feels like!

 

 

Can you imagine feeling THAT on 3+ octaves?!

It’s not a pipe dream. 

You just need to know someone who really knows how to show you the way back & will give you the tools to own it for yourself.

A Simple White Girl's Guide to Vocal Training Methods

IN THIS VIDEO

Maybe you’ve been there: classical singing lessons, learning the rock singing method, the broadway belt, speech level, online singing lessons teaching who-knows-what…

Ever wish someone would just make it simple to tell the difference between what different vocal coaches teach?

ME TOO!

Little did I know that 2 decades, studying them all & spending tens of thousands of dollars would still only result in me having to figure it out for myself.

It’s super important to understand what’s behind what you’re paying to learn.

So in this quick flyover, I’m going to break it down for you.

Every single type of vocal training out there belongs to one of these camps:

The Classical Singing Approach

This began with the first big singing contest and the desire to copy a sound of some singing monks. 

It has since developed into a long list of rules to copy that sound….which as it turns out, sounds nothing like those monks.  go figure.

Because it’s been around the longest, this approach is the most widely taught around the world today.

Rock & Broadway Belt Approaches

By the time recorded music entered the scene, many singers didn’t want to sound like some old monk….or whatever sound the other camp ended up sounding like.

So they did what they knew to do:

They found a singer they liked and tried to copy the sound. 

Then came up with some rules to try to force the most uniquely different voices to copy the sound too.

Not to be outdone (& losing tuition like mad), the classical camp decided they must embrace the new sound singers wanted. 

So they did what they knew to do:

They found a sound singers wanted and used their previous rules to make a new copy of a new sound.

These are the Broadway belters. 

Same approach. 

More contemporary sound than classical

Just not as hip as the Rock belters.

Speech Level Approach

SLS (the most widely known branch) & the rest of speech level advocates were the very first in history to start not with copying a sound but by looking at the medical science of the time (1950’s).

By then doctors knew that singers in all the other camps were having problems and getting damage. 

They already knew it was because the voice is already ‘plug and play’ at birth: that copying any sound puts strain on a voice, many times ending in vocal damage.

Speech Level coaches teach a core group of exercises initially developed with a vocal surgeon in the 1940’s. 

They also introduced the concept of ‘the mix’.

The Voice Club Method

As a working working singer for nearly my entire life, I’ve had the excuse to study every method out there.

Over 95% of the available training is from one of the approaches above.  But I found that when I gained something I wanted I lost something I didn’t want to lose.

And none of them could answer any of the questions I had.

As a professional voice talent who had done the research to develop a training program for commercial voices I knew that copying a voice (or ‘character voices’ in VO lingo) could be terribly damaging to the voice.

I’d already started adapting my VO training for my vocal work since I went from vocal to VO sessions regularly.  It was surprising how much better I was singing.

That’s how I stumbled upon the Speech Level camp.

I eagerly started training, but was bummed to discover that to have access to any answers I had to spend a hefty amount of coin to become a certified coach.

But I really wanted answers.  So I did.

But in the midst of those highly classified master coach training workshops something became glaringly clear:

No one here was going to answer my questions either.

THEY were there to spout complex pedagogical theories…or trying to nod knowingly when they were as lost as me.

I was just looking to grasp on to anything I could simply understand that would help me sing better by my next gig on Friday.

But then something horribly bizarre happened:

 

After suffering two separate medically induced voice-ending conditions I discovered for myself the limits of both anatomical vocal instruction and vocal surgery.

What my vocal anatomy taught me through those dark times not only resulted in completely repairing my voice twice & adding an extra half octave, it completely changed everything I’ve ever believed the voice could do.

Ever since then it’s been my personal mission to share all the answers I found to every singer I can; to education and empower them to take back control of their vocal potential…

…& to learn HOW to protect & perfect the only voice they’ll ever have.
