    @mey_luqman98 do you think you will annoy them or did they already say? I would talk to them and check if it actually annoys them. then go from there. it is a bit embarrassing to sing in front of people for most, so it might be that you are more worried than them. it is maybe not the most entertaining sound for them either but maybe you can arrange this. if it helps, I do the warmups before band practice, and in the beginning I thought it was a bit embarrassing to do it in front of people (even if it is the same people who hear me sing on a regular basis), but I got used to it after a while and now it is kind of a running gag

    first of all yes..they haven't said anything yet..it just that im afraid I will annoy them..

    second, me and my roommate is not in a good condition(we're not close)..so it might be weird and awkward to do a practice in front people who just considered us an acquantaince..

    but anyway I will try to do the practice first and check if it annoy them..

    if you talk to them and make sure they know you want to avoid annoying them, that will be a good start. good luck!

    Yeah the KTVA exercises can get really loud and annoying to others. When I was doing them, I'd use something called a beltbox. I don't know if they're still making them, but it helped me exercise at the time.

    Whether or not it's a good idea to do exercises that way is another discussion.

    I do allot of mine while I am driving to and from work, that way it eases the strain on my family LOL
    but seriously, they now only mildly mock me as I head down to the basement studio :wink: :smile:
