Hello from south Brazil
Hi Everyone. I'm Joe from south Brazil, though formerly from the west coast of the U.S., mostly southern California and Seattle.
I appreciate very much that work that Ken and his staff have put together in the form of the course material, all the video demonstrations and this forum. I look forward to camping out here with the rest of you as I devote the next several months and beyond to taking my singing up a few notches.
My story is that I've been singing at home alone for 25 years both for the love of it as well as out of a fear of having others hear me sing. In May of this year I began to take lessons from a classically trained opera singer and it was very useful. As I prefer to sing rock, I switched to an SLS instructor a month ago, then found Ken online and decided that I'd prefer to study exclusively with KTVA.
What I relate to most from Ken's work is the love of singing hard, passionately, with intensity. I forget what Ken has called it. "Wailing", or "singing his ass off"? I love to sing this way, too, and must learn to do it properly, to extend my range, and to add to my tool belt of tones and textures.
