Question about development and speaking voice
Hello! I am new to the Ken Tamplin forums and I'm just now getting into daily routine of doing the full exercises to grow my voice. I notice that when I do the open throat technique and exercises, my voice does get the brightness or tamber as Ken has said it should in the videos. And as a singer, I've always wanted to be able to really belt and have a strong voice. I've had moments where I could belt my voice but not very reliably or healthily. I've had constant problems with cracking and have been told it sounds like I'm forcing my voice which I think I probably was too haha
When I speak normally, I have a sweet and soft, high voice because it's just the way I've always talked my whole life being a shy girl. I have been noticing that when I do the exercises, my chest voice feels very, very weak and wobbles a little before it settles into the tamber. This especially happens when I'm singing low notes.
My question is do your past speaking habits and the way you talk eventually determine how developed your vocal cords are when trying to belt? For example, does a person who naturally projects when they talk tend to have a stronger belting voice? For me, I cannot project my voice very well even when speaking for a presentation! So I'm just wondering overall how the vocal chords are developed differently just from speaking growing up... Please and thank you! - Kylie
