The Simplest Ever, Steps to Placing Your Tone in the Mask

If you’ve been reading my articles or perhaps you’ve read my book, you will by now be familiar with what singing in the mask is all about.

This short article will offer tips on why a resonant voice is so important for singers, and it begins with the art of placing your tone in the mask in voice training so that it resonates; extends your vocal range; and adds timbre and color to your voice.

And you’re going to be surprised to discover just how easy it is to develop a beautifully unique voice, because already, you ARE unique—well, everybody’s voice is unique because our skulls are all unique… even in the case of identical twins, there is always a slight difference in  the shape and size of the skull.

Why is the skull significant? 

Because the voice resonates in the head and this is what creates a sound that is especially unique to every individual on the planet. To properly harness and develop this unique sound as a singer, the way to go about it is to master Speech Level Singing Technique.

There’s nothing complicated about this. It is just a combination of vocal exercises that will help to connect your bottom, middle and upper harmonic qualities in order to develop one strong and dynamic voice. I think that is the simplest way of putting this.

Special Vocal Exercises

Included with my book, you’ll find my vocal exercises Joett Vocal Drills Volumes 1-7. Better yet, I’d be more than happy to give you a FREE voice assessment via WhatsApp. (You’ll find my WhatsApp number in the banner above).

Africa Launches Newest Community Outreach Project for Singers

In recent months, a sixteen year-old boy named Tshiamo from South Africa, after finding me online, reached out for help .

In order for me to do a voice assessment, he sang a couple of lines from the John Legend song All Of Me, it wasn’t impressive, but I saw a lot of potential in his voice. He only needed the training.

He said that he really wanted to be a good singer. It was his dream, he said, but he couldn’t afford my fees. I went on to ask him what voice coaches in South Africa generally charged and he said they charged around US$35 an hour and that his mother simply couldn’t afford that. Mind you, I was asking for far less.

And so I offered to train him on pro bono via Skype. He couldn’t believe it. He sent me a voice note just to thank me (very sweet) and I could feel the emotion and excitement in his voice. He was SO elated!

It is this sort of reaction that spurs me on to keep helping people who’ve got the talent but cannot afford to hire a voice coach. The boy from South Africa came on board with a once-a-week Skype sessions schedule and his transformation is incredible. Everybody around him has noticed the difference in his voice, including all of his schoolmates and teachers. In fact, he is now regularly asked to sing solo at assembly in school.

This is just one of the many success stories from youngsters who’ve greatly benefited from my unconditional help and support. I do it for the love of helping others, but I know I can do even better with YOUR support.

And here’s how you can help.

I have just created a fundraiser project on crowd-funding platform Fundly, Hashtagged #VocalsQuickFixAfrica, and the aim is to raise money that will go towards providing private one-one-one voice lessons to young people in Africa, coupled with hosting Masterclass sessions in major cities across the African continent. Needless to say, donations will go towards covering logistical expenses and learning material.

Feeling a little generous?

How to Access the Mixed Voice, Explained in Layman Terms

If you’ve read my article How to Get a Complete Vocal Warm-Up in Just 12 Minutes you will already have an idea as regards perhaps the easiest and fastest way to get started with a regular voice training program.

Recently, someone in my Telegram group, Joett Voice Studio, wanted to know how to access the mixed voice.

And so today I want to talk a little bit about the mixed voice.

My response to my online student’s question was pretty simple... and it reads as follows.

It’s really about working on erasing that middle register, where usually the untrained voice will disconnect, to create one voice. But of course you have your lower, middle and upper registers but we’re just trying to create that seamless transition and connect them better.

And so, in my vocal warm-up exercises you will cover the mixed voice area of your range again and again and in so many different runs, that eventually you will strengthen that particular area and the transition through your mixed voice will become seamless.

Want to get started? S-t-r-e-a-m FREE voice training audio tapes, here!

My book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach contains over a hundred articles and tips for singers, and is available in paperback from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Lulu.

Scientific Evidence Reveals "Fountain of Youth" Formula

Scientists have targeted a very powerful hormone responsible for human growth and cell regeneration that, once harnessed, has all the properties of a bona fide "fountain of youth."

It's known as "Human Growth Hormone" and it's an extremely important part of our body's functioning at the cellular level.

In fact, not only does HGH promote the growth and regeneration of cells; it also allows other vital functions in our bodies to occur, including...

Metabolism
Brain function
Sexual responses
Healing
Muscle growth

... and more.

However, as we age we experience a drop in HGH levels. All the normal results of aging occur in direct correlation to this drop in HGH.

For years, we've simply assumed that this is a natural part of the aging process. And we assumed there was nothing we could do about it.

But after a great deal of scientific research and clinical trials, we now know: We were wrong!

The Benefits of HGH
In study after study, the benefits of HGH are clear - and they are impressive.

HGH has been proven to have far-reaching effects, including all of the following:

Wrinkle disappearance
Improved overall life outlook
Exercise tolerance
New hair growth
Healing capacity
Skin elasticity
Back flexibility
Muscle size
Body fat loss
Sexual function, sexual potency/frequency
Improved cognition and memory
Stabilize your moods
Lower your blood pressure

... And more!

But How Does It Work?
In simplified terms, HGH is basically like sipping from a fountain of youth. When HGH levels are increased in your body, you literally turn back the clock to rediscover a more youthful you.

For example, here are a few of the benefits of HGH, with a quick explanation of HOW this little hormone can have such dramatic effects:

Weight loss

HGH can help you lose weight easily, and here's why: When you increase the levels of HGH in your body, you increase your metabolism (or metabolic rate). This means your body can process nutrients faster and more efficiently, which leads to rapid - and effortless - weight loss.

Improved memory

HGH can also help to improve your failing memory by rejuvenating the cells in your brain. With increased cellular health, your cognitive function (awareness, thinking, and memory) are improved.

Increased skin elasticity

The cell-regenerating properties of HGH mean that time can literally be turned back, reducing those fine lines and wrinkles and giving your skin the elasticity and healthy glow of your youth.

Increased sex drive

One of the biggest benefits of HGH is that it can directly impact your waning sex drive. As we age, our libido naturally drops - for some people, severely. There are a number of factors that cause this, including hormones, skin sensitivity, blood pressure, and more.

HGH improves all the key functions required to regain a vigorous, healthy sex life.

The many benefits of HGH are astounding. Treatment, however, is a little tricky. Let's have a look at some of the treatment options for HGH.

Treatment Options for HGH Therapy
Traditionally, patients in need of Human Growth Hormone treatments had to subject themselves to a course of multiple injections of HGH from the pituitary glands of cadavers.

While this treatment option was effective (if somewhat ghoulish), there were two major drawbacks:


  1. The benefits of HGH injections were only temporary, so the injection therapy had to be repeated over and over.
  2. The treatment was very expensive - adding up to tens of thousands of dollars per year.

For the average person suffering the ravages of aging, this form of treatment simply wasn't an option.

Another option that became available was to orally ingest human growth hormone. However, the molecular size of HGH and its incompatibility with the digestive system means that taking HGH by mouth simply doesn't work.

But a recent scientific breakthrough has made HGH accessible to everyone. The new method of treatment is not actually using human growth hormone itself.

Instead, it's a complex blend of proteins, amino acids, herbs, and other nutrients specially formulated to help stimulate your body to produce its own HGH.

The formula targets the anterior pituitary gland, causing it to produce and secrete more HGH into your body. The result is that your body's systems begin to improve and function like that of a much younger person.

To find out more about how you can stimulate the production of HGH in your body and combat wrinkles, muscle loss, weight gain, and a lagging libido today, go to GenF20.com.

How to Get a Complete Vocal Warm-Up in Just 12 Minutes


If you are a singer—aspiring, emerging or established—and if you’ve ever experienced your voice playing up when you least expect it, then you'll be amazed to find that there is an easy way to fix the problem permanently.

Yes, I meant that literally.

Nothing beats a good vocal warm-up just before you hit the studio, stage—or if you like, simply for vocal maintenance.

And so if you are an artiste struggling with issues relating to your voice, this article will offer handy tips to help you slip right through the little vocal hurdles and what's more, I’m also throwing in a complete breathing and vocal warm-up exercise package for good measure.

To get OUTSTANDING results, you only need 12 minutes a day!

The more entrenched in vocal malfunction you are, the more you’ll want to find a solution that not only sorts out the problem, but one that when done regularly and correctly can also propel your vocal talent onto the next level. You’re going to be amazed to find that for only a few minutes a day, just how effective this proven vocal warm-up regimen is going to be for you.

Professionally trained singers will attest that until you’ve experienced the advantages of a well planned vocal warm-up exercise, you won’t quite fully understand what it is you’re missing out on. So let me explain in not so many words. I’ll try to keep this short and sweet so you can get on with the exercises I am giving away for FREE at the end of this article down below.

When it comes to singing, there are two things that are most inseparable. You need good breathing technique to carry your notes; and your voice needs to have an evenly connected tone all the way up and down your lower, middle and upper registers.

Now, the only way to develop a clean and well connected tone when you sing is to do your breathing exercise (approximately 5 minutes on my prerecorded tape), prior to your vocal warm-up scales (only 7 minutes on Joett Vocal Drills Vol. 1)—in that particular order—every time you want to warm-up your voice.

You're only one step away from downloading my free voice training package. Quintessentially, here's the deal. I have uploaded a 12-minute vocal warm-up and breathing exercise set along with illustration video content from my classroom... which will show you how it's done. It's easy, quick, and you only need to do this regularly (once a day) to get massive results. It's that simple.

My book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach contains over a hundred articles and tips for singers, and is available in paperback from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Lulu. It also includes my complete voice training audio product Joett Vocal Drills Vol. 1-7.
