I am from Winnipeg Canada north of North Dakota. I will be 65 in February 2019 and love to sing but never had a chance to do this full time and any reason would not be a good reason. Now I am retired and I do not like to sit and wait for time to just pass and go so one day I decided it is time to start doing something completely different. So singing and guitar and keyboard and synthesizer is now part of my second (maybe more) life. Beside other courses I am taking music is half of it. I started level 1 about a week now and I practice twice a day, I think if I do more it might hurt my throat/vocal chords. Do guitar twice a day for as long as my fingers can take it. That will also take a while to strengthen them. So, happy to be here and from pass experience, practice is the key to all achievements and to get better you need to fall because getting up is the best part of evolution. :)

    @ClaudeSing , Welcome mate, I live 2 provinces over from you in Alberta!

    KTVA Pro level is a fantastic investment into your musical growth.
    Training twice a day is more than enough, just make sure you give yourself an off-day here and there to avoid burnout.
    Watch the videos multiple times to start, and when you begin the actual workouts, make sure you keep the volume of you voice down as you build it.
    If you run into any roadblocks or snags, feel free to post on here and we'll do our best to help you navigate your way through them.

    There is no better time to start Ken's course than as soon as you possibly can! It just keeps getting better and better the longer you stay with it!

    HI Jazzyoh, thank you for letting me know that I am not the only one at 65 starting something that I would have love to do when I was younger but could not for so many reasons, which are truly an excuse that is inexcusable. Now I am doing this and I love that everyone here love to help one another.

    I was practicing twice a day for about 3 weeks but I stopped for the last 4 days. Wow, 4 days should not be a significant difference, well I must say that there is a big difference. Now I know the difference I do have to practice every day one or twice. Giving a break so the chords can heal and be ready for the next practice.
