Hello KTVA from Taiwan

Hi, my name is Tim Hsu, 19 years old, from Taiwan. now studying in University
yesterday i purchased KTVA program Volume one to three. Hardcopy version, but ken's assistant still offer a download link to Volume one for me to get start right away, which is so nice:)
I've been into singing since i was in junior high. I remember on a special day, I sang a song to my classmates, and they said I can really sing. I was so glad to hear that, so I decided to study singing my own. 

I could sing on G#4(A4 on some good days) before I used any training program. but actually i could only hit the note with strain in loud volume. I could not do it effortlessly...
The first method I tried is SS. after a couple of exercises, I thought I "could" sing better, but I lost all my "fans". They all wanted me to sing in original way I used to.... then I realized I've focused too much on expansion of my vocal range and the power of voice not on quality.... but actually SS made little progress on my vocal range too, I totally made myself a sucker....

The second program I tried is Breaking the Chain about two years ago from RockTheStageNYC But most exercises in it are too difficult for beginners (too high for Dude). The mp3s and pdf are still in this computer :(

I lose confidence to sing in front of people...I hope I can do it again some day, and sing better than before.
sorry for my bad english, but I'm said when I recall my singing career..

    one day I found a tip to sing high, can easily slide up to G5-A5 with power. 
    but still struggle a lot with passaggio
    I can't sing on passaggio powerfully, it need a lot of focus.

    欢迎您参与KTVA! 我们一起尽力吧!


    I am assuming that Mandarin is your mother tongue ;). I can speak Mandarin so I hope I can help you out if you have any problems :) Don't hesitate to ask anything!

    Also, you sound like me! 2 years ago I joined KTVA. I could sing up to a F4~G4. (A4 on good days) but it will also sound strained. I also tried SS, didn't work for me =\. I never tried Breaking the Chain though. 

    Take your time with KTVA. 慢慢一步一步来,别急!每个人都有自己学习的速度。 :)

    Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day.

    普通話是我們平常用的,但不能說是我的母語(其實我不太會講母語),很高興這裡還能看到中文:P 只是我不會打簡體字 可能會讓簡體使用者看得有點吃力 

    THANK YOU :)

    Actually I've been studying singing for 6 years. Now Ken in the video tell me to forget about it :-S
    How do I know I'm ready for next exercise??? When to move to the next Volume??

    Welcome to KTVA, Tim!

    Like Rayhan said, Rome wasn't built in a day.  This will be a long-term commitment for you.

    Yes, you need to put SS and any other vocal methods behind you and put your focus on KTVA now.

    You will be glad you did.  This method really works, and will change your tone and your power as well as your range.

    We're glad you're here.

    在你的KTVA的folder里面会有一个“How to do Volume One.doc"的文件。打开来读一读。里面解释得很清楚。


    还有请发e-mail给ktvainfo@gmail.com. 里面放着你购买KTVA的账单还是收据什么的,receipt,那你的ktva forums的帐号就会换去enrolled还是pro(如果你购买了全3个Volumes)
