I have reached a fairly advanced level of singing now after working on singing for a few years now. For some reason when it comes to singing live I can't sing as good though. I sing karaoke on the weekends and the environment is extremely loud. Under those loud conditions I find it much harder to sing harder songs high belting songs seem more out of reach, the lower range stuff is fine though. I usually end up straining my voice to reach higher notes or even harder stuff in the depths of my range. It seems like its harder to sing louder when its extemely loud. As soon as I leave the room I can pretty much sing anything though. Its almost like its harder to find my placement in such a loud place. Perhaps my technique is wavering under such conditions. Have you experienced something similar to this and what is the solution?
