  1. Somebody asked me about Ken Tamplin saying all vowels are off the “Ah”
    vowel except “Oo” and “Ee” and why that differs from my explanation. Ken is
    partly correct.

    “Ee” is formed off of “ih” as in the word “hit”. “Oo” is formed from “Ah” –
    IF done the proper Bel Canto way. What I show here is how Enrico Caruso and
    Pavarotti formed their “Oo” vowel.

    The formula is: AH – OH – OO – done by closing the lips forward into a kiss
    or a fish face. The leaves the mouth/throat behind the lips open like the
    “Ah” vowel.

  2. In this video, it seems like the “Oh” vowel is produced from the “Ah” vowel.

    But I hear Ken Tamplin repeatedly point out that all vowels stem from the
    “Ah” vowel except “Oo” and “Ee”, so I am a bit confused on this concept.

  4. As far as I know the Ng position is inevitable for singing classical
    pieces, the higher the tone the more the back of tongue shall rise. Another
    exercise which I found to be helpful to bring the tongue out of the throat
    (I tend to pull it back, doesn’t really help me to let it lay down relaxed)
    is the Yey one with every vocal, yay, yiy etc…

  5. vibrato ONLY comes about if your voice is relaxed. If you’re having trouble
    doing vibrato, you have a problem with tension somewhere in voice wither at
    the vocal cords, tongue or diaphragm

  6. Look at my video on “mixed voice” here: /watch?v=uDpQXNXKu-0 – I
    demonstrate an “tongue out” exercise. The back of the tongue does not need
    to rise with higher frequencies. Classical modes do this to create a darker
    tone by keeping the resonance farther back in the mouth resonator. You
    don’t have to do that.

  7. OK, even if you have to hold the “n” you still need to watch that you don’t
    overcompress or swallow that consonant.

  8. Your videos are very helpful, thank you! I’ve got one question about the
    tongue position. I know the Ng position is the healthy one, which I mostly
    sing with. But when singing non-classical songs, like rock or pop, I feel
    the ng position isn’t right placement for this type of music. Especially
    the A and O vowels. Many pop singers have this rill in the tongue. Is it
    possible to learn it? And then switch from rill to the Ng tongue positions
    when needed?

  9. Thanks! How about the consonant 'n'at high notes, it’s either that I can’t
    reach the note or I can’t hild it there…

  10. actually it best to NOT spread the mouth for the “ee” sound coming from an
    “eh” or “ih” sound. Leave the mouth in an “eh” shape and form the “ee” with
    the tongue – slowly – until you hear the “ee” form. Stop. That’s as far as
    you need to go to make an “ee”. Its unrestricted, unpulled and has no
    tension like a spread “ee”. Spreading your lips is just involving unneeded
    facial muscles to create a sound that doesn’t need it.
