New casual singer here from Illinois

Been singing since age 11 for fun, and contests.
Unfortunately I cannot be a serious singer now as I'm quite ill, but I do sing when I can.
My main problem is around where the chest migrates into mixed voice, I've never been able to be loud. I thought it was just me doing something wrong, but have since found out it might be to do w/my vocal chord thickness. Below that area of the scale and above is usually not an issue.
Anyway, just hoping to one day have this "problem" at least semi-resolved. As I'm sick to death of hearing "Oo you're so good but, so quiet..."

I've learned singing from Jem and the Holograms as a child through many other artists, like Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Amy Grant, and others I'm not thinking of. As far as strictly singing and vocals.
My musical tastes are quite rangy. From 80s pop to death metal. I'd say Scandinavian metal is my favorite.

I also played a bit of guitar as a teen but never kept up with it. Played piano somewhat but I have a very good ear so I play things that way. I just cannot play fast or read music fast!

    hi, welcome to the forum, a lot of people here do the course for fun. you will find lots of good info on here, also, the course is really good and will get you in the best shape for singing, if you put in the work. you can also check out my profile page for a free routine that i did before starting the course, you could adapt it to your needs and do it as a demo for the course. two weeks in and i was convinced the course works.

    wishing you the best with your health issues, too
