VideoHere Posted June 16, 2011 Share Posted June 16, 2011 hi folks, this message goes out to all the folks who are not routinely exercising the voice and/or are beginners to vocal training. if you are truly serious about learning to develop championship caliber vocal ability to sing as a profession, no matter how motivated you may or may not be, understand you need to start with the fundamentals, the basics, and work your way up slowly and methodically, especially if you are attempting to go at this without formal instruction. i hear so many forum members trying to "get it" practically overnight or some are trying to "spot train" to develop in areas that need requisite strength and coordination just be able to attempt what they want to do. folks, if you read between the lines, voice training is a process, and it begins first and foremost with the fundamentals...breath management, posture, relaxation and a willingness to accept the fact that this endeavor with take several months to years before consistent results are realized. there are forum members i've read the posts of who are trying to circumvent the basics, or are attempting to bypass the hard work and repetitous yet important vocal exercises to achieve success. well, i'm gonna ya straight..it just ain't gonna happen. so, why not either start to train with one of the great instructors here on the forum, and/or buy a program and commit to doing the exercises at least 4 days a week or more, for a good year and see where it gets you. don't concern yourself with "will i be able to do this and that and the other thing" just focus on doing the training, dilligently and consistently. wonder, like i did 15 mos. ago, how the hell is all this stuff is gonna translate into a significant improvement to my singing voice. i had no clue what the hell i was doing 15 mos. ago. but i stuck with it and the improvements, yes they were gradual, and i had my setbacks, but overall it was worth every minute of it. all i can say is, i can't wait to hear the improvement each succeeding year after this. so to summerize: don't look for a quick fix don't spot train learn the fundamentals , the basics, first be patient and work hard i want to go on record if you do what i'm suggesting, i guarantee you, you will improve. it would also be helpful to everyone who enjoys helping you to please let us know whether or not you are a novice and are training, how long you've been at this, etc. when you post "help, i can't sing high notes" for example, include in your post some background, experience...are you an amateur, profressional..give us the information so that we can help you better..or direct you to the more experienced folks. thanks for reading this. i wish you the best in your journey. bob Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
