Voice Lesson 1: Mike

Vocalogical is back with our first voice lesson! Mike, who joined us on Wednesday for an interview, sings with us as we discuss many important concepts for singing health and technique. Volume, vowels, and extending range are only a few topics we dove into! Mike also offers his own feedback on the exercises we use and how he feels while vocalizing through them. 

Missed the interview with Mike? Go back an episode and enjoy! 

We'll be back on Wednesday to dig deep into vocal fry, which has proved to be a controversial topic for voice technique. Our next voice lesson will be released two weeks from now!

Happy Listening!

*My pupper, Fiona, makes a brief appearance at the end of the episode. She wanted to vocalize with us, which was sweet, but unfortunately, as it distracts from the singing itself, she won't be making another appearance.*

I'm very pleased to bring to you Vocalogical's first interview!

Mike Wrabel, a friend and student, came in to talk about his experiences with and feelings while doing voice impersonations. He gives us a taste of Family Guy's Peter Griffin and Cleveland Brown, while speaking on how the next voices he wants to conquer are Bernie Sanders and Patrick Warburton. Oh, he also says how he characterizes his own mother's voice!

Mike speaks highly on trying crazy and new voices for any aspiring impersonator and voice actor, and gives his input on the important relationship and balance between the science and feelings of the voice. The best part is, we get to hear more from him on Friday! Today was the interview, Friday is the voice lesson we recorded together. Both episodes bring up fantastic ideas and gives you fun sounds and vocal qualities to listen to, all while learning more about the human voice!

Anatomy of the Larynx

Welcome back!

Today, we learn about the cartilages and muscles of our voices. What's the epiglottis? Which muscles help us sing? Those answers and more are featured! What we discuss today will open up better understanding for many many topics down the road. 

Next week: We'll have our first guest, an impersonator! We'll learn from him as to what it feels like when he mimcs the voices of other people. We'll also have our first "on air" voice lesson with him as well!

Happy Singing!

The first episode is up!

Vocalogical has begun it's journey as listeners meet the host and learn some interesting facts of how singing affects our minds and bodies.

Did you know singing changes how fast our hearts beat? Or that it'll help you gain confidence? How about that you could tell if someone was singing based on the components of their saliva?! We discuss all of that in this first episode, with many more to come.

There are tons of other topics to talk and learn about! This is only the tip of the iceberg. Thank you for joining Vocalogical on your vocal journey, and happy singing!
