Hello World from Evelyn! I'm age 33 (born 1983) and I'm from Washington state in the northwest of USA, living on the outskirts of Seattle.
I'm so excited about this vocal singing DVD & mp3 course. I've purchased the full course "How To Sing Better Than Anyone Else" – PLUS Pro Packs PLUS, and the Weekend Warrior. All for digital download.
I took professional singing lessons from a good teacher in Seattle, and had 5 weeks of private lessons in her home studio. To learn both classical & pop style singing. Then I found Ken Tamplin's DVD course and it has been incredibly helpful! I feel and hear the improvements everyday. My goal is to learn 4 styles: classical, pop, R&B, and rock (80-90s metal). In the near future I'd love to remix my own acapellas with EDM music too.
My voice is a bit different than some. I'm transgender male-to-female (no surgery) and have been on HRT (hormone replacement therapy) since March 1, 2016. The entire process takes 2 years minimum to complete. For some other Transgenders it takes longer. As of posting this introduction I've been on hormones for approx 7 months now.
In the year 2015 I very successfully trained to speak with a female voice, it took me 10 months. Now in 2016 I have been speaking with a female voice daily since March 2016.
People's lives depend on my voice, literally, because I'm both a medical security officer and a video game designer too. I train all the new medical officers. And every week my voice must be heard throughout 4 campus buildings (3 floors each) including restrooms, business conference rooms, and the outside parking lot. I have to make emergency phone calls to the 911 and the local fire department every month, too. I have saved multiple peoples lives already because my voice is clear and I can speak daily in my feminine voice over the radio
However, I also still have my male voice too. Because I'm a video game designer, I specialize in every aspect of game development, specializing in 2 different video game engines called Renpy (2D) and Unreal Engines 3 and 4 (3D). This includes voice over work, in addition to 2D, 3D, physics simulations, music production, legal, business, code, & marketing. I can do it all, and can prove it too. Though with game production there's a lot of hush-hush in design, so if plans go through from the years 2017 - 2023 then I should be able to release 2 game titles as planned (along with my voice being heard in both game titles).
But my voice has been a challenge for me because I can speak both in male & female, but prefer to speak only in my feminine register for obvious reasons.
When I started singing with my former teacher in Seattle, and along with Ken Tamplin's DVD course ... I learned that I had to re-learn how to speak\sing again using my male voice. But since I work both my chest and head voice, I try hard everyday and put all of my heart into my singing voice.
I simply want my Voice to sing as loud as my heart sings.
So far doing 4 weeks of Ken Tamplin's course has given me amazing results! My vocal breaks between chest & head have been slowly going away. I'm still practicing Volume 1, but it makes me love singing and hearing my voice every week as I get better.
I was concerned about this course, since I'm transgender and literally have 2 voices that I can use for singing and for voice over work. But putting effort in finding my own voice everyday using Ken's techniques has truly helped me alot.
I can't wait for next year 2017. I will have much more progress with both my singing voice, in addition to my hormone transition too. I have no idea what I will look like or sound like. I becoming a new person, improving every aspect of my life each week mentally, physically,
My heart goes out to anybody going through extreme change or improvements in their lives. Never give up on yourself.
