Thanks Jim,
That's a great suggestion about standing next to a good singer and hitting the same notes (hopefully )until I really have my part down pat. We have about 5 weeks to go before our big Christmas show.

I'll keep you posted.

Hi Jim,
I recently joined my church choir (never would have without the confidence your course provided me). My question is: Do you have any suggestions you typically give your students regarding singing in a choir?

Thanks,
Rog857

Hi Jim,
Thanks very much for your reply (both written and on the weekly wrap-up). I too look forward to the harmony classes and seeing how various songs fit with the instruction.
Best,

rog857 created a new topic Singing Versus Drills in the forums.
Hi Jim,
I've been a full member now for over a year--gone through the beginner, intermediate, and all the advanced course material to date. I know you have many songs on the site to practice with but there seems to be no link between the drills and a particular song. I imagine that when you teach in your studio you do drills with students and then assign a song to practice to make the drill more interesting. Are there specific songs we should look at on the website that you believe would be beneficial when practicing the pentatonic scale, for example? Or how about a diminished chord?--etc.

Also, the new drill technique in the advanced course you're using--playing a track for each category--would you please add the category name on the screen so we can see where we are. Right now I have to go through the entire bass section to get to the tenor area. If "bass" was always on the screen until the tenor section, I could move directly to the tenor section and stop wasting so much time.

Thanks,
Rog857

Jim, Thanks very much for your reply. I look forward to seeing feedback with your students. Maybe someday when I get the courage I'll send you a video tape.
Cheers!

rog857 created a new topic Viewing Actual Lessons in the forums.
Hi Jim,
I've been a member of the vocal mastery program for awhile now. I've gone through the beginner and intermediate courses and am now working on the advanced drills. While I think my voice has improved (stronger, better range) I'm still having a hard time measuring my progress. Given the limitations of teaching over the internet vs. in a studio, have you given any thought to showing us actual lessons you've given? The "Fly on the wall" series capped out at 1 or 2 lessons. How about letting us see beginner and intermediate lessons? Perhaps the feedback you give these students can assist us. Or, can you think of another way to measure progress? Doing exercise after exercise is getting a bit old without some sort of feedback on progress.

Thanks,
Rog857

Jim,
Thanks very much for your reply. I may have used the wrong term. I think I meant vibrato (unless this term in interchangeable with modulation). Any ideas on improving vibrato?

Thanks again,
Mike R.

Hi Jim,
Are there any specific exercises you'd recommend to improve voice modulation? I've looked on the internet and there are certainly many folks professing to know how to teach this but I'd like to hear it from an expert.

Many thanks,
Mike R.

Hi Jim,
Thanks to all the exercises my voice is getting stronger and my range wider. Problem is I'm still singing off key a bit. Can you suggest something that will help me with this?

Thanks,
Mike
