Hi From Texas (success story)

I grew up in a small country church and the church I attend now all sing 4 part harmony accapella. I always wanted to learn to sing but was always self conscious of my voice. Even as a little girl my voice was a little lower than the average girl. I found it difficult to sing in unison with the ladies but right at home singing high tenor with the men. Despite learning to read music and learning to harmonize, I still was not happy with the way my voice sounded. I have been doing Ken's course for about 2 months now. Last night at our church we had praise and worship night which is all singing. I was standing at the sound booth with my husband because he was getting a mic to lead some of the songs. Our song director came up to me and asked if I would take an alto mic. He said the 2 ladies that do it are not there and he needs someone to sing the alto part (I would be the only one mic'd singing the part). Just a few months ago despite wanting to try it, I would have made up and excuse not to, or taken the mic but got so up tight that I would have not been able to get a note out. I surprised myself and calmly took the mic. Instead of being nervous and worrying about what people thought or screwing up really badly, I thought about it's the LAH, ping is king, breath, support, and be relaxed. If at any time I felt I wasn't doing those things, I corrected them. When I began to sing into the mic, I was shocked at what I heard. I did not hear a grandma who couldn't sing soprano anymore or a young boy going through puberty (i often thought I sounded like this). Instead, I heard a strong confident low female voice. The song director said I sounded great! I still can't believe it. I did not sing every song perfectly, but it was so much better than ever before. I am really only just getting started. I am excited to see how much my voice will grow. This course really works and I haven't been able to practice as much as I would like due to young kids and work and it still helped me. Thank you Ken for putting together an awesome course that is easy to follow!

    Of the many student success stories here, this is among my favorites!

    Well Done!
