    600 Second Singing Ep.6 – Are Your Vocal Exercises Helping or Hurting Your Singing?

    600 Second Singing Ep.6 – Are Your Vocal Exercises Helping or Hurting Your Singing?

    It's a common thing right? Scales go well, songs go, umm, not so well.
    There might be some nifty ways for you to work out why that is and eventually solve it. Steve and Chris look into the ways which the brain and body learn skills and transfer them on to similar tasks. They also give you a few ideas as to how you can start to construct scales that are actually more like songs, which helps drag the benefits over from the exercises!

    600 Second Singing Ep.4 - Tongue Tension Helpers (part 1 of 507)

    Admittedly, these tongue strategies might be No’s 1 and 2 of 507 because there are so many way in which you can stop that tongue from being a muscular annoyance in your singing. You don’t have to do them all mind! It’s more due to the fact that the singing world are extremely creative! Plus, the root cause of tension is different from one singer to the next.

    600 Second Singing Ep.3 - Exercises To Prepare You For A Massive/Better Range

    600 Second Singing Ep.3 - Exercises To Prepare You For A Massive/Better Range

    This podcast is not a quick fix for high notes. The truth about quick fixes is that they only really work when there are parts of your voice that are present already. Vocal registers being one of them. So, high notes are not going to be easy if you haven't really explored your falsetto at all, yet so many singers want to know how to skip this detail. Well, you can’t. At least not without some external and unhelpful muscle getting involved, which will burn you in the long run.
    It doesn't matter if you're beginner or professional. Going back to basics is a great thing for any voice, so join us for the range groundwork.

The Naked Vocalist

The Naked Vocalist’s triumphant return!
I really missed you!
The PT information was very helpful and informative. Another homerun finding the People with the right information we vocalists need personalities to get the great joking that you guys are always doing.
I missed that! This guy went Toe to toe and was great!

65 and alive

Cheeky boys. I am a singer who is continuously learning about my voice. I just discovered your podcast. You give good advice and information. I may not know the artist you mention but it does not mean that I don’t care. I know how to research on GoogleLand. How about a podcast that address the older/mature singer. Remember if you will be an old wanker someday. All the best precious.

All jabber, needs script

This podcast has the potential to be good but the narrators desperately need a script or an editor to trim all the fat. Most of the podcasts drag on, drenched with stale humor and long pauses, making the already dense material very difficult to process.
