    Gday mate from Australia :smile: I like rock and heavy metal too but find myself listening and singing alot of pop these days until my technique improves enough to get some real heavy grit going.

    Welcome Terry!

    What part of Canada are you from?! I'm in Ontario! :) I love rock as well. I grew up a huge Kiss fan. I also love some of the real powerhouse pop singers. I recently recorded a cover of So What by P!nk to start applying what I've been learning with glottal compression and distortion. I also have posted on here a Jessie J tune called Mamma Knows Best which is a big belly tune as well. I look forward to hearing you sing!

    HI Jackie and Wiggs
    Thanks for the Welcome.

    I am from Orleans Ontario.
    It is one of the suburbs of Ottawa.


    I am also a big Kiss Fan.
    I never was able to sing in their range.
    However, I watched videos of Ken
    making students do what seemed

    I would not bet money that I won't
    be doing it sometime in the future.

    Also, thanks for the Jessie J tune.
    I will listen to it.

    How long have you been taking lessons?
    I listened to some off your other videos.
    You are awesome!

    Wigs and I are in the same boat.
    I listen to a lot of pop and I sing it
    as well.

    However, I made a lot of progress in just
    a couple of weeks. I am now able to sing an octave
    higher than I could just a few weeks ago!
    Vowel modifications work miracles.

    My first sit ups I could only do five the very first day.
    Great news. I am now doing 50 and I am doing the scales at the same time.
    The books on the abdomen are also a big help.

    My routine consists of two hours of practice in the morning.
    I try to do another hour or so while practicing my guitar in the afternoon.

    Hi @Gidpicker (Terry)

    That's great! I'm happy to hear about your progress! I've been singing for 20 years and been training for over 9 years. I've been with Ken about 3.5 years now. :) Keep up all the hard work! :)

    My course arrived today in the mail.
    I felt like a young kid in a candy store!
