Alright, it’s official. Chuck says I’m ready so if you’re in need of a fabulous singer for your upcoming event, I’m available! Yup, even I was shocked. I mean, c’mon, two lessons and I am American Idol worthy? (Too bad I’m too old.) Surely Chuck must have been mistaken. Guess I’m a quick learner, eh? I should’ve done this YEARS ago!
So, if you’re getting married and need a wedding singer, give me a call…
Wait, what’s that?
Wait, what? **Hold on I think I hear Chuck…**
Oh… I guess what he really said was that I had improved. Not that I’m ready for tryouts of any sort or that I should sing at anyone’s wedding. DARN IT! Improvement is good though, right? I need to work on my vibrato and staying loud in my deep chest voice. I have what he calls a soft chest voice. It’s getting better… I think. Coming back down into my ‘chest voice’ from my ‘head voice’ is another thing I will be working on this week.
A did great, as expected and her confidence improved quite a bit in just a week’s time. It was amazing to see her walk in there, belt out her practice ‘Nay nay nays’, ‘No no nos’, and ‘Na na nas’ like it she had done it a hundred times before. She had no fear this week. She was even confident enough in her song that he had her do it without Christina Aguilera (Mulan) singing along. And then he assigned her a new song. It’s a song from Les Miserables called Castle On a Cloud.
Here’s A’s version of ‘Reflection’ this week. Still a little timid and she forgot the tune but overall her confidence was much better than last week.
And hey, if you’re in need of a great singing teacher or voice coach, visit his website and give him a call. He uses the same techniques the stars use! Find your inner chest voice… you’ll be glad you did. It’s lots of fun!
