Vocal Coach comments from VoiceCouncil Team

You sound like an accomplished singer with great control. Keep an eye on the ends of your phrases where you ‘let go’ of your tone. You could try adding more physical energy over all – look into anchoring your neck and back muscles for strength and support. This technique could add some real sparkle to your performance. Also, when you sing in your higher register, make sure you maintain energy to keep your tone on pitch and resonant. Keep your technique focused for both the big and small moments.

Bradley Ritschel's bio

I am a 17 year old bass-baritone from Whippany, NJ. I sing bass in The Whiptones, a Doo Wop quartet that I co-founded five years ago (thewhiptones.com). I have been studying voice for the past four years under the instruction of Jeff Stanfill of Voice Soaring Studios in West Orange, NJ. I will be attending the University of Texas at Dallas as a freshman McDermott Scholar studying mechanical engineering this coming year. Thank you for this opportunity.
