  1. I bookmarked your site because this is a definite interest. Singing is more of a hobby for me though and I have other pressing things to contend with first.

    I’m a natural baritone and easily sing second tenor range with my church men’s group. I have a good natural range but I can’t sing a note of falsetto!

    I can sing the bottom of choral alto range and the top of the bass range.

    The only real reason I want some falsetto in my bag of tricks is that it would help me with some favorite songs in karaoke. Can’t hit the high notes in Journey’s Faithfully for instance.

    I had someone mention in a bar once that you could be trained to sing falsetto but I never followed up. What do you think?

    1. hey Chazz – the high notes in ‘faithfully’ can/should be sung in full voice in the ‘loft/awe’ vowel position in full voice as falsetto is actually a defence mechanism for the voice when your throat is closed or too much airflow is being used. I have a video on this very song coming soon, so stay tuned


  2. Hey Kegan,
    This is something I really need! You seem like a pro man! I just started to learn how to sing. I have no idea on what I am doing but I am practicing on my own. Finding my voice is really challenging like today I was singing and I was attempting to hit a high note. I noticed my throat start to burn for a second. What was the deal with that?

    1. Hey Kendrick! Thanks for the kind words.

      Awesome, learning to sing really will enrich your life! Check out my videos on proper breathing and modified vowels, this will have you hitting the high notes REALLY easily in no time flat, it’s pretty simple once you understand the mechanics. If your voice is getting hoarse or your chords are ‘burning’ after singing, you’re putting undue strain on your voice and risking permanent damage. Remember to ‘hold in’ your air rather than blowing it out, and when you’re breathing with your diaphragm a little better think ‘down’ to create compression for the high notes rather than pushing up to them.

      Shoot me an email or message if you have any other questions about your voice!


  3. What a great tool for someone interested in stepping up their game! I’ll definitely keep this website in mind for anyone I know that may want to hone in on their vocals. I believe what you’ve got going on here is an incredibly beneficial option for your targeted audience! How long have you been coaching?

    1. Thanks Courtney – absolutely, I wish these resources were available when I first started learning how to sing!

      I’ve been singing for over 15 years, and coaching since 2010, so around 7 years.

      Thanks again,


  4. What a great thing!
    I have a grandson who love’s to sing and what a perfect thing to do for him.
    I can tell him all day he sound’s wonderful, but who am I? lol But to have someone in the business give him tip’s and advice, would be completely priceless to him.
    Can’t wait to share this with him.

    1. Thanks quiltingrandi! Absolutely, he can get in touch using the new chat feature any time he has a voice question!


  5. I’d love to do skype or lessons through YouTube with you! I sent a message on Thursday but I don’t know if it went through as it was done on my phone and pop ups usually disappear. I live in Toronto Canada so the time zone is a bit difficult, but I love your videos and want to see what can work for me and yourself in terms of time. Any way to email me some more info? I appreciate your time!

    1. Hey Nadia! I did email you back, I’ll try again today! I have a number of students in Canada currently – there’s a good crossover in the afternoons your time, so time difference is super easy. 🙂


  6. Hi,
    I have been singing for 11 years, and I have been told I am good. The only thing is I have problems in the transitions between notes. I am able to hold notes for up to a minute and not change my pitch ( save vibrato). But I was wantin to know if there is a way to help with my “pitchy” problem?

    1. Hey Jacob!

      By ‘transitions between notes’ do you mean you become pitchy when changing notes/following a vocal line? Seems like you might be locking your registers somewhere along the way and using pressure instead of release. I’d have to hear it to give you proper guidance, but yeah, the key to your pitch is in your frequencies – fit your placement and frequency control and you’ll attain a much better hold of pitch.


  7. Hi, i want to start out singing and try to find my voice if i have a good one and see if i can start singing but im lost and need a bit of guidence. I found this site and this convo and thought it whould be a good place to start asking some questions. Can Someone help me?

    1. Thanks for the message Justin! Absolutely – you’re welcome to use the contact form above to get in touch and let me know what’s going on with your voice. Have you tried singing before? A great place to start is releasing your registers with a lip trill or an “NG” sound – when you’re comfortable with this release, you can start building your voice with vowel tuning, diaphragmatic breathing and building your resonance and placement further.

      All the best,


  8. I think this is really cool that you have made an online singing classes! I have never been a good singer, I can’t carry a tune in a bucket! I wonder if I am tone deaf? Do you think that your classes could help a bad singer like me?

    1. Cheers Dan! Absolutely – I started out with a completely untrained, off pitch and strained voice to begin with, and over time I’ve developed my singing technique to a professional level using a healthy approach. It’s all about practice, technique and the approach you use.

      All the best!


  9. Hello, i am teenager boy. I do have an interest in singing, and I do sing alot! I also get complimented a lot that i got a beautiful voice. But there is a big problem no one realizes except me, myself. I got a sharp/heavy voice in high/medium notes and and a light voice in low notes like that of ATIF ASLAM (Pakistani singer). Everyday when i wake up, my voice is fresh, crispy and capable of reaching any high note. When i go to school, its like that for the first 2-3 periods, but then the voice starts changing, it becomes flat, and it feels my voice is blocked and I LITERALLY can’t sing any medium or high notes (even my low notes becomes worse). It stays like that and throughout the the school timing and it becomes worse on the timezone when school overs. Even my speaking voice loses its sharpness and i sound like an annoying 5 year old. I know that sharpness in the voice at the morning is because of the those acids after you wake up, but why does my voice literally becomes so trash as time passes in school. is it because i talk alot in the school? i tried not talking much, as much as it is possible to NOT talk in school, and it delayed the time when my voice starts to get worse, but it doesnt stop it. When i come home after school, the voice stays like that for a while until at night around 9Pm my voice starts to get its sharpness back. Sometimes, it doesn’t, so i have to drink honey in warm water for it to be fixed, and sometimes even that honey drink doesnt work!! how do i maintain my real, sharp/heavy voice. HOW DO i keep it when i need it the most (afternoon in school, because of singing competitions etc). Is there a different procedure to maintain a sharp voice, if so, please help me with my case. It’s getting depressing day by day!!

    1. Hey Abdulllaahh, sounds like you’re experiencing vocal strain or wear to your voice from the way you speak. I suggest getting some help with your speaking voice and of course improving your vocal foundation. I too used to have similar issues (australian accent myself), but after training and adjusting my ‘accent’, I have not experienced these issues for over a decade.

      All the best,


  10. Hello, i am teenager boy 19, don’t think puberty affect my voice in anyway, or i’m yet to reach there. I do not have an interest in singing professionally or anything like that, except to leads men Sunday at church on the men’s choir because they use me a lot to moderate and lead songs as a youth. My problem is that i have a soft nasal voice from birth i can’t seem to get rid of, i try therapy, and for my sinus i use nasal spray and other decongestants the doctor recommend and still no change. I just want to like iron out the nasal in my overall speaking/ singing voice.

    1. Hey Castiel!

      The nasality is likely misdirected resonance, or even an opening in the velar port/soft palate when you are singing vowel sounds. You’re welcome to shoot through a short clip and I’ll let you know what’s going on.
