Have been trying to improve for a long time - many vocal programs have failed me.
Hi there guys. Just bought the pro packs - it was quite a big leap of faith and i hope it takes me where i want to be. I've already seen improvements but i have some questions that i haven't been able to ask because i haven't received my pro forum access. In the email i got a reply that i would receive the access in approximately 48hours - 3days have passed and nothing yet so.
I in large part bought the pro version for the forum access. So i was especially eager to get it - as i think it's the most valuable thing in the pack - nothing beats reliant feedback to questions etc.
Was hoping i would get it ASAP - but i guess there's probably a protocol to it. Which kind of sucks since i want to clarify my doubts as soon as i can. Misinterpretation is the deadliest mistake when learning. Having bad experiences with that with other programs i decided to try and get the pro version to avoid such.
So Hope i get it soon... (an explanation as to why i have to wait for something i paid a lot for would be nice though) (just saying).
My experiences with other programs have been inconsistent in terms of progress - but if anything i have learned what's legit and what isn't. As well as everyones perspective and who's seems more effective to me.
Without a doubt - KTVA has always seemed the most credible to me - but ofc - it's quite the big leap of faith. Especially considering all the other programs i have experienced that haven't been worth it. It makes one wary and easily skeptical.
So i hope it delivers on the promises - it already seems like it will. I will no doubt work hard for it as i always have, all that's left is for a method to finally work according to what's advertised.
My journey with singing has been quite the roller-coaster full of false hope, frustration - and heartbreak.
I started singing at about 15 and i SUCKED bad. I only was doing it for fun for about 2years. And as a result i had little progress.
Life being hard for me in terms of finding out what i wanted to do with my life - lead me to the decision that i atleast want to be talented at something. It would make me happy, joyful, proud, and would just give me a lot of hope and a feeling like i have something to look forward to.
Before finding singing i was pretty empty, i never listened to music. I just played video games and did schoolwork. Was always pretty bad socially so life was pretty empty on that side of things. Just made it worse.
Singing through the form of online karaoke brought me a lot of enjoyment that i haven't quite felt before. As well as my best friends i found through it - that are still with me today.
I owe music / karaoke a lot. It's quite a gift.
I am very glad i eventually started taking it seriously. At around 17 i tried to start improving with youtube stuff. It took me through A LOT of confusing mumbo jumbo. One teacher would say this, the other would say another. And the story continues.
I eventually decided to invest in information... and what i found funny and just sad, is that even the paywalls ... HAVE PAYWALLS!. If that makes sense.
Even when you bought their program, there would be bad explanation and you would be left with doubts. Eliminating the point of the program which is supposed to clarify your doubts and teach you how to fix them.
Where does the paywall come in? - it felt like they did this on purpose, to get you to pay them to clarify your doubts.
From a business perspective it makes sense. I get it, teachers need to make money.
But i rather they do it in the format of Ken, he makes you pay a pretty good amount. But in return you get much more.
These guys put the price of their course lower and it feels they don't give you enough. Hence forcing you to ask questions through the method of lessons. Which in turn ends up costing you more.
Anyways enough of that. I've struggled a lot trying to understand it all. And i've had several instances where i'm like "this is finally gonna be it" (according to their advertising) but it never really is. Perhaps it helps you a good bit - but no where near what it promises.
In my 19th year i had a big vocal problem that lasted for almost a year - as a result of overpracticing and singing - a programs exercises - and acid reflux.
One exercise from a program i found that whenever i did it - it would almost ALWAYS make me hoarse or worse. I found this out through trial and error - it was too much of coincidence that whenever i did it - it happened.
The big vocal problem i had actually left me without a voice, both speaking and singing wise - for almost a year. And when i recovered i had to regain my voice as if i had never sang before in my life. It was quite a frustrating experience that left me kind of hopeless.
Thankfully during that whole year i studied a lot on voice so i discovered a lot of helpful stuff that i still use to this day. And when i got my voice back it was easier to recover because of it. It was still challenging though.
So it's been quite the crazy journey for me. I'm hoping KTVA can accelerate and SOLIDIFY my progress.
One of the things that has sucked is that - the "seeking answers" phase can be long for many of us - and it can be quite time consuming and draining.
I am really hoping with KTVA now, that the answers are here for me and i can just sit back and work hard. Instead of constantly asking myself if "this is all there is" because my progress is not as fast as i hope.
It would bring me a lot of peace. As well as give me more free time which i need, since most of it has been spent on seeking answers and trying to improve.
Here's to hoping that KTVA is the answer to my prayers!. (I don't actually pray but you get the point, it's a saying).
I'll likely update as i see results. Wish me luck.
