Oh my! Already we are into December with Christmas virtually around the corner. Where did this year go?
So I have been keeping a little quiet with my music and writing. My goal has always been to sing a big ballad number, not everyone’s cup of tea I know, but a personal goal in confidence and ability. I have taken time out to concentrate on improving my vocals. It’s been a long time since having vocal lessons and I made the decision a few months ago to improve in extending my range, power and breathing technique.
There is always so much to learn with singing, even the professionals need to keep on top of their game from time to time. Even with the power of Youtube and Twitter your constantly given tips and ideas to improve your vocal technique, and I’m always interested to see what other vocalists and vocal teachers suggest. There is so much out there it can become a bit of a minefield. After a suggestion from my current vocal teacher I’m currently delving into the book ‘The Art of Singing’ by Jennifer Hamady. Highly recommended after identifying my hang ups and realising that all these techniques out there really are similar, the basics are all there, it’s just everyone is doing is differently and doing whats right for them. I just need to stop worrying and go for it!
