Many artists fail to practice their most important instrument; their voice. No matter your age or skill level, building your voice through voice rehearsals can always add some value to your next musical project. Did you know that your Larynx (what allows you to sing), contains five major muscles and two of them specifically create the quality of your voice, such as pitch and tone. They are called the Arytenoid muscle group and the Crico-Thyroid muscle group, and they control two different registers. The lower register, known as the chest voice, is the action of the Arytenoid group. The upper register (Falsetto voice), on the other hand, is handled by the Crico-Thyroid.
There are a few more differences between the upper and lower registers. The lower register tends to produce a heavier sound, while the upper register produces a higher tone commonly associated with females. There is also a big break (or “crack”) between the two registers between the notes E and F and above middle C. The action of these muscle groups is what causes this break to occur, and training to avoid this break is what great singers do to maintain a quality vocal tone and range.
During singing rehearsal, most programs that offer voice lessons train people to change these involuntary muscle actions in order to eliminate this break. The goal is to have the upper and lower registers come together to from one big vocal range. Voice lessons are always helpful, even if you already know how to sing. There is always room for improvement, and practicing, especially with a teacher, will only allow you to enhance your singing abilities, which will ultimately make your music sound better overall. Even the industry’s top signers maintain vocal coaches and practice consistently. Think of your voice like a well tuned athlete. If they don’t practice, exercise and use their bodies every day they will slowly deteriorate. The same applies to your voice. Use it or lose it.
Voice lessons allow you to form new vocal responses, break bad vocal habits, increase your resonance and develop smoother transitions between notes. By training your muscles to work in a different and effective way to improve your singing, you will be able to build endurance and learn to sing without these breaks. Voice rehearsals are importance because since they help the artist’s singing ability and if your lead singer sounds great; your band will sound great. By scheduling regular voice rehearsals or voice lessons, you will notice an improvement in your tone, flexibility to sing at various pitches, better accuracy, balance, and an increase in the range of melodies your are able to sing.

Hey guys I need some help in writing a fugue! Could you please look at my score and give me some tips?
Here it is, Its a cover of tokyo machine's bubbles for marching band, I was just wondering if I could get some help with it.
In order to announce my pro account coming soon, I composed a piano and cello arrangement of Hans Zimmer's Oogway Ascends. Any critique is welcome!
I wrote something but don't really know how good it may be, because I don't play any string instrument and this is my first time of involving string instruments in my work, please advice me......VERY WELCOME
I composed this trio for flute and 2 clarinets to play with my music teacher and another music student, and I wish to receive feedback and critiques for this piece, as I am only 13 years old.
I wrote this with that in mind, trying to express a guy's point of view. At least mine anyway. Not all of us are abusing, spouse-beating scum. I can't sing or play an instrument so if someone wants to record this, on piano or guitar or whatever, and sing it I would love to hear a human take on this.
What do you think about this? remember its NOT done yet :D
I just composed my second original, it's quite short, but I worked a lot to make it more resonant than my first.
I've previously posted some of these, but some are new.
The bigger challenge is transferring this into an orchestra piece, but looking for any criticism on this draft. Thanks!
Hey Everyone! I have a segment piece from a group of pieces im making based on grief and depression and how a mad man realizes that a struggle must be accepted before it can be solved. It's called the Shadowman's Frenzy. Please check it out!:)
I am new to this group and I have already published my 5 pieces and am working on making one that my pep band uses for the trumpet as well. Is it valid to submit it with only two instruments? I was wondering because the description states that only music arranged for the marching band is allowed.

Help me, I"m trying to make a finished piece but I'm kinda running out of ideas, and if you also could comment on what I could try to make better and what you think sounds good or bad.
