Any hope for me?
I live with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a condition that results in progressive weakness in the muscles, effectively leaving me paralyzed except for some finger movement. As it pertains to singing this means I can’t stand, my back and neck are slightly to moderately arched backward and a forced vital capacity (FVC, the exhalation volume) that’s around 15% of an average person's. I can hit up to around a D5 (I’m a guy) and have no problems with pitch and timing, but find I myself out of breath and having to breathe every few words. I’m not looking to perform at all— I just enjoy singing to myself, and I do so in the shower for 1.5 hours (due to my physical limitations) every day, but am looking to be the best singer I can be and ensure it’s sustainable. Is there any hope that the KTVA course will help me considering my extremely weak diaphragm?
