Two weeks into course...Wow!
It's really terrific to have found KTVA! A YouTube search for vocal coaches, after having several 'live' ones throughout my lifetime, yielded a lot of stuff that I simply knew wouldn't fit me. And then this guy that looked like an old long-haired buddy of mine popped up...and after getting hooked on Ken's videos I ordered the course. Now I couldn't be happier!
I am 62 years old...a lifetime pianist, and started singing as a way to learn melodies for 'ear-playing' my instrument. This developed into a skill that annoyed my piano teachers, because I seldom follow the charts even though I can read music well. Anyway, the ear training part of it has paid off well, but my voice, although I've been told it's 'nice,' has never been reliable as far as supporting upper register pitch, stamina and just overall quality. This has changed dramatically over just the past two weeks. The sit-up exercise in Volume 1 really helped a lot, as have the audio exercises ( getting through them 2 to 4 times daily ).
Looking forward to progressing through the course, and I am also enjoying reading many posts on this Forum. It is obvious that you have a very dedicated team of professional moderators and some amazing students. Mr. Ken Tamplin appears, by all measures, to be "The Sensei of Song!"
...With great appreciation,
