Lip trills and head voice
JurajM Member Posts: 54
My throat feels sore after doing lip trills and I've noticed that while doing them in higher notes and in my head voice (always, not just in trills) my larynx is raised. So how can i fix both of these?
As to the raised larynx you can check out this video where Ken talks about the various positions and what he thinks is the better position and how to get to it. He also provides some exercises to help in working that out.
Hope that can help.
I highly suggest that you don't jump from vocal coach to vocal coach. Pick one coach that you think is going to provide you instruction that is the best fit for you and then proceed to learn from ONLY that coach. Each coach has their own approach to teaching and, mixing and matching creates a ton of confusion. This confusion for a beginning student will impede their progress markedly. Imagine if you where taking Krav Maga from one instructor and Tei kwon do from another. You will end up questioning each instructor about the other instructor. This will only create confusion for you and eventually you will drop out in shear frustration, so it is in singing.
Once again I implore you. Use ONE instructor and one only. You are only going to get more confused if you continue to skip back and forth between instructors.
We are all here to learn.
my name is Marco and I am from Germany. I've read this discussion carefully. @HuduVudu has given you great advice. @highmtn was the one who gave you additional tipps. From reading your description I would absolutely agree with @HuduVudu and @highmtn.
It would be a great help if you could manage to record an exercise and to upload it here. We will give you feedback.
if you need help, do not hesitate to ask us.
Juraj is a very beautiful name - I had a colleague from Ukraine with the same name who worked with us in the hospital. He was a great guy. Are you from Ukraine, too?
PS.: My grandfather was from Macedonia.
