Hi there!
I've heard some rumors that some of the singing students at my school can sing with a harmonic voice, like two different notes at one time.
Does anyone know something about this, or how to learn to sing this way?

One day you`re gonna wake up and you`ll be 30 years old and you won`t have done a damn thing with your life.

It's not really like actual singing, if that's what you're on about. From what I know (I'm no expert, so take this with a pinch of salt) it's just like, single sounds (Ooo, Ahh, Ee, and so on), and you can't really control what overtones you get and such. I think there are a couple of lessons on youtube about so-called ''Harmonic Throat Singing''.
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

I think the first minute and a half of the video might be what they're talking about. You can't distinctly hear different pitches, but you can hear a blend of a couple. Like the technique or not, they proved you can do it.

its done by shaping your throat and the inside of your mouth, practice and you'll get it. It's very difficult but I'm just a beginner at it myself. You can get octaves and 5ths relatively easily, and for basses in a choir(like me) an overtone-rich sound is preferred because it supports the harmony more. I can't imagine using it for solo singing.

Tibetan monks do what is called multiphonic singing. Might be something on YouTube on it.

From what little I know of it, it works on the same premise as multiphonics on a brass instrument.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

I know it sounds crazy, but try to learn to inhale your voice. www.thebelcantotechnique.com

Little solace comes
to those who grieve
as thoughts keep drifting
as walls keep shifting
and this great blue world of ours
seems a House of Leaves
