Should I wait joining a band until I have trained longer, or should I just jump into it?
I ask this question on the forum, as it might have relevance for others as well. Everybody, please feel free to answer. I want your opinion too.
After I posted some "before KTVA" tracks on my facebook, I have got requests from a band with good and experienced musicians to be their vocalist. Will it destroy the process I have begun if I start singing "for real" too early? I really want to start singing with them.
I have only been enrolled for one week, but practice one to two hours a day. I understand all the concepts so far, and feel that I can incorporate them when I sing the excersises. When I sing a song it is more difficult, but I do it slowly and with awareness, first with vocals only, and then I slowly add consonants. However, I think that if I suddenly stood there with a band, it would be more difficult to remember all of this and at the same time sing.
Here are the "before" tracks. I am working on these issues, that I know shine very well through in these tracks: less consonants and air and more support and open throat.
Is there a golden middleway?
What would you have done?
