    Red face Post a clip of you singing something!

    doesn't have to be anything serious, just sing a little blurb and post it.

    for starters, I'm feeling like a bass today, so here's a silly bit of me singing "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child"

    PS: of course, if you actually are a talented singer (and I'm sure we have many on board), feel free to show off a little and provide us with some entertainment :P

    I'll politely decline, thanks. Me singing sounds pretty close to Peter Boyle, as the Frankenstein monster singing "Puttin' on the Ritz" with Gene Wilder's Dr Frankenstein in Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein! To think I actually got through my sight-singing exercises in college!

    If you heard me sing, no way.

    Just do Alvin the chipmunk on 120 bpm and you got my vocals.

    WOW! You have great voice! Thanks for the share!

    I have begun classical singing lessons few months ago but I stopped due to hectic schedule in school . The voice teacher said I am most probably a light/leggiero tenor but I doubt so because my high notes are not very easy and I thought I did a fairly credible job singing art songs written for bass/baritone.


    Hence, I have attached few audio clips of me singing some art and contemporary songs and my vocalization. My vocalization was done prior to lessons.

    nice! at this point, all I would say is, work on your breathing a bit (it was a bit high), keep practicing your vocalises and maybe stick with some more middle range rep (though I realize most of this was probably for fun lol), but I agree with your teacher's assessment that you are most likely a tenor. bass/baritones who have only been singing for a month don't casually sit down and think "hmm, I feel like singing a few high Bbs"....we have to work really hard to get those

    Dear Sir/Mdm,

    Thanks for the advice. Why do you think most of the songs I sang in bass/baritone key was for fun? AHAHAHA ^^

    well, they seemed like pretty advanced pieces for starting repertoire.

    I must admit that the lower notes sound a bit forced but I thought my middle-lower register might give a clue about my voice. I tried to imitate the singers of those songs. Lol In general, F2 and G2 are quite elusive for me I wish I can sing those notes with aplomb.

    I'm a bit shy for the cameras - but this is me from a few years back.

    Can I sing while pinching my nose shut so at least it will be funny?

    In all honesty, my voice is waaay too low and unsuitable for singing.
