A few questions.
Is it bad to hold back when singing? I'm not talking about holding back from yelling or any of that, I mean when you do the excersises and stuff cause when I do them I try not to get too loud so everyone in the house can hear me, is that something you shouldnt do? Cause it seems like I tense up a little more when I hold back from incresing my volume. I pretty much practice scaling at a speaking volume and keep the same volume up and down, am I actually suppose to get louder when going up the scale? Also, they say your larnyx isnt suppose to move but mine moves slightly, not a lot, I've pretty much gotten past the keeping an open throat and not using my throat muscles but after a few hours of singing(around 6-7 hours of practicing while I do other stuff like chores), it begins to hurt, is that just over practicing?
I'm pretty sure its cause I do it wrong, but I cant sing loud for the life of me, lol. I can yell when I'm angry but I cant sing loud, I can't find the right way to use support. Last thing is, and this may be a dumb question, but when you scale, like do, re, mi or any of the vowels AH, OO, EE, ect, do you go up into the head voice or into your lower chest(like when you say the word hey out loud). This is confusing to me cause I can make a noise similar to my head voice when I go lower/higher pitch in my chest voice if that makes sence. I wasnt sure which way you were suppose to scale, basicly up into your head or lower, but higher pitched into your chest(falsetto?).
Any feedback would be appreciated.
