The TVS Specialized Onsets for Building Strength & Motor Skills for Singing
How can you improve your head voice techniques with the TVS methodology? Because TVS Methodology involves a lot of focus on calibrating and tuning the onset package and then putting those balanced components on the move with sirens, it tends to put both singer and voice teacher right in the face of what the immediate problems are. Training onsets and sirens like we do at TVS, is like getting under the hood of a car and really examining the details of the problem. The wonderful insights gained by training this way put me squarely in front of my student’s challenges. In regards to onsets that occur in the head voice above the Passaggio, these onsets are more exotic and less intuitive then onsets that occur in the chest voice. Additionally, the physical development requirements and acoustics needed to phonate successful onsets in the head voice are under developed. Muscles are weak, confused, not coordinated. Simply put, onsets in the head voice are harder then onsets in the chest voice. I am assuming that this is not news to you, even if you are a beginner to singing technique.
As I say, developing the head voice is a big part of the “sport of vocal training”. Therefore, I started combining research and experimentation with my students to help them to troubleshoot and develop better head voice onsets. Out of this work, I developed an innovation for helping singers that is immensely helpful for vocal training, The Specialized TVS Onsets.
The following specialized onsets and the supporting matrix attempts to make sense of these onsets in writing, but to really appreciate their potential and what they can do for you, nothing beats a private lesson with me to make sure your doing them correctly.
