Me singing opera for fun


This is just two clips of me trying to sing opera which is like the hardest thing to sing.
What do you think can i become good if i get a vocal coach to teach me opera?

    Sounds like you've got a powerful set of pipes there, but completely uncontrolled and all over the shop with your pitch. It does sound like you're pushing to be loud for the sake of loudness and getting an opera-like effect, so I suspect you'd end up blowing out your voice unless you learned proper bel canto.

    Unless you want 4-5 years of training on vowels alone, you may want to reconsider your life choices...hahaha!

    Sounds like you had fun though and played around with what you can do, so that's always a good thing regardless.

    Not bad.

    Look at this video.
    Might give you a better idea how opera singers sing.
    They always try to keep everything nice and open most of the time, with very good support.
    Don't focus on getting the opera-ish vibrato or that other stuff. Focus on how you manage your support and how to use the vowels correctly. (If I'm wrong, feel free to correct me).

    I love the fact that you're uploading opera tracks while having a Bathory album as your avatar...hahaha! (P.S. Big black metal fan here, especially the more obscure noise-influenced stuff like Stalaggh/Gulaggh)

    I'll be totally honest with you, I don't think you've got a good voice for opera but that's largely 'cause it's really difficult to sing that way properly and sound good. You've got a decent voice and a good range with plenty of power behind it, but do you want to sing opera exclusively?

    I know black metal is hardly known for its vocals, aside from classic gutturals and Quothorn-like screeches, so I'm assuming you want to push your voice outside of that specific genre.

    What is it that you want to do vocally?

    Tried to do another Pavarotti song. It sounds bad?
