Voice Cracking & How to Prevent It (Singing Tips Video)

Why is everyone so afraid of voice cracking?? And what can we, as singers, do to prevent the dreaded wobble? Check out my brand spankin' new singing tips video -- "Voice Cracking and How to Prevent It" -- for advice on combatting the process of cracking. In it, I crack a lot like a complete weirdo. Hopefully you will lol with (at?) me.



(This video has also been added to the Free Singing Tips area of this blog, which is a collection of handy singing articles, videos, and singing advice. Check it out if you haven't visited yet!)

What do you think about cracking? Have you ever cracked during a performance? Are you terrified of cracking while practicing, or have you learned to embrace your voice's vulnerabilities as you learn and grow?

Singers, Sign Up For an Online Video Critique With Me (Fel)! (Video)


Hiya! If you're a singer, please check out the trailer (above) I made for my exciting new Online Video Critique service, which is really picking up some steam via my website. It's an amazing way for me to connect to singers across the world -- I love to hear and see you sing!

How It Works: All you have to do is film your video, fill out the form on my website, checkout with PayPal, and we're in business for a quick 1-3 business day turnaround, in which I send you a filmed video of me critiquing your performance and vocal technique (and whatever else you're working on). Check it out and let me know what you think!

Sign Up Today >>

On a related note, there's a prize in order. Those of you who were generous enough to take my nifty little singing survey this past week (see previous post to get up to speed) were automatically entered to win a free Online Video Critique. I received 78 responses and all your answers were incredible -- detailed, open, honest -- the works! Thank you for sharing your experiences with me. This will help me tremendously as I continue to hone my teaching style and offer more or more online resources for you guys.

I'm pleased to announce that the winner is.... Justin C.!

Look! I made some nifty #charts
Justin, I've sent you an email letting you know and also listing the next steps. I'm psyched to work with you! Wooooo!

As for any possible one-on-one phone chats to discuss your answers, those still might happen in the next several weeks, so look in your email inbox for a message from me. I'll email you all a thank-you note regardless, but will also set up chatting time via email when I'm ready to get the ball rolling.

I'm so thrilled to be part of such a cool community of singers, actors and theater-lovers. Everybody, let's do a virtual dance together. [Does virtual dance.]

See you soon!

Love,
Felicia

Take my survey & enter to win a critique and/or phone chat!

Here is my face, smiling at you, like, "Please take my survey lol!"

*Note: As of Friday, April 25, 2014, submission has been closed. Thank you to all who participated! The winner will be announced later today.*

Are you a singer? An aspiring singer? Do you belt it out in the shower?

If so, I'd love for you to help me out by taking a quick survey.

Is there a prize involved? Heck yes! One survey-taker will be randomly selected to receive a free online video critique from me! (What's a video critique? Learn more here >)

So what's the survey about?

In an ongoing effort to bring more beautiful, free, effortless, joy-filled singing into the world, I'm searching for ways to better serve my private and online voice students.

Lately, I've been very interested the concept of fear and what holds us back when we perform. 

Would you mind lending a few moments to offer your opinions? 

You can remain 100% anonymous.

Cool bonus: I'm also looking to phone interview some of you for further research.

If you're interested in potentially having a little one-on-one chat with yours truly, simply fill out the survey as truthfully as possible, leave your email at the bottom, and be sure to check "yes" when I ask you if you're open to speaking over the phone. 

If I feel you're a good candidate for an interview, I'll email you and we can schedule a time to speak.

Thank you, friends! I can't thank you enough for participating!

Love, Felicia
