Ep. Ep. 93 Answering a breathing question from Jeff from Canada

In this episode Sara answers a user question about how to reduce noise when breathing.

Ep. 89 Note Stems and Direction

In Episode 89, Sara answers a user question having to do more with music notation.  Question:  “What’ the difference between the notes facing up and the notes facing down?”

Ep. 84 Registers

I’ve heard a lot of confusion from SingingTV’s Youtube users regarding registers and what they mean.  Episode 84 should clear up and confusion.  Enjoy!

Ep. 81 Bridging Registers/Better Mix Tone/Less Air

In Episode 81, Sara takes you through an exercise she calls the “Ngya Ngyas” (but her college students call the “Roommate killer”), to help bring your sound in mix register “forward”, or more “in the mask” creating a stronger, more resonant, less breathy sound.

Ep. 79 Green Room Interview with Tracy Bonham

A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to perform as a guest artist with the Blue Man Group at the Hollywood Bowl in two sold out shows for 18,000 people. Here’s a green room interview backstage at the Hollywood Bowl with my fellow guests artist, Tracy Bonham. You may know Tracy from her GRAMMY-nominated hit “Mother Mother” in 1997, or from her current performance and teaching work as a singer and violinist/fiddler and guest artist with the Blue Man Group.

Here’s our short green room interview backstage. Enjoy!

Ep. 78 Green Room Interview

A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to perform as a guest artist with the Blue Man Group at the Hollywood Bowl in two sold out shows for 18,000 people.  Here’s a little green room interview backstage at the Hollywood Bowl with a few of my fellow guests artists, beatboxer and singer Butterscotch, singer and songwriter Emily Zuzik, and singer, songwriter, musical saw player Janeen Rae Heller.  Enjoy!

Ep. 77 How to Get Better at Singing, Faster!

Taking a little break from the norm today, to answer a question I get a LOT.  Since Gary Vaynerchuk, one of my biggest non-musical influences, just did a little Instagram video that I think applies SUPER hard to vocalists of all kinds, I’m going to let him answer the question himself. Check it out.  It’s 10 seconds that you probably need right now.

Ep. 75 Allergies and the Voice

It’s allergy season! In Episode 75, Sara gives you tips on dealing with allergies and the voice.

Episode #2: How to read bass clef.

This episode of Singing TV covers how to read notation in the bass clef. This lesson is especially important for male singers. For those of you who think it’s not important to know how to read music, I REALLY hope you’ll check this out. It’s not that hard at all! Enjoy!
