(So long story) About my *[email protected]%?*! sad singing story & CURSED mid-20s.
Hi. guys. I need a few words of consolation...
I'm 27 years old Korean guy. Let me tell you about my story.
I had good power & high range until my first singing lesson.
My first singing lesson is at 4 years ago.
The first lesson is Seth Rigghs SLS method from Korean instructor. (about 18 months)
I lost my range and power. But my sound was not squeeze and no strain. I could vibrato.
So I thought that "It is proccess to get good singing technic".
I took lessons about 18 months, But I had not power and range, still.
So I stopped his lesson. (My first vocal coach)
Then, I studied with other coach(My second coach).
The coach had been SLS instructor level 2.
He said his method is upgrade version of Speech Level Singing which his developed. I believed him.
He said to me:
1) I should practice the "low notes airy tone".
ex) Mariah Carey's airy low notes
2) I should pratice the "low notes pure head voice".
3) My voice should be changed to low notes airy head voice(Mariah Carey) and high notes pulling & strong chest voice
(ex: Louis Armstrong or James Brown or Michael Bolton's sound).
The more I took his lessons(about 10 months), My voice was changed to can't control, cracks a lot, too much airy in low and never appear vibrato & long tone.
I stopped his lesson.
Then, I studied with 2 coaches(They don't teach with SLS method). (1 month with a coach, and then 1 month with the other coach)
NO RESULT in my singing...
I had Endoscopy.
Endoscopy results say:
1. The right vocal cord is thicker than the left one
2. Around First Bridge(E above Middle C), right arytenoids cartilage pushed left arytenoids, which caused the whole vocal cords to twist left.
3. The doctor told me the spot where right arytenoid cartilage pushes left arytenoids cartilage, and this spot exactly matches with where I feel painful when I sing higher than E notes. (about male's High C)
4. Vocal cords have to be white, but mine was close to black because of tiredness.
5. There were no vocal cords nodules and vocal polyp detected.
And then after 4 months(April, 3 months ago from now) I discovered Brett Manning Singing Success.
I bought Singing Success Program, Mastering Mix Program, Mastering Vibrato Program, authority of Singing Success TV.
In addition, I took lessons 6 times with Singing Success coaches.
Still I can't Vibrato. Still my losed powerful range is not come back! &*#$!.
Even, My sound often flip in the LOW NOTE.
I wasted very much money, I wasted time. I'M NOT RICH. JUST invested for my dream........ *&#@!
During in my mid-20s? I have NOTHING. I dosen't computer games, I dosen't making girl friend. I had only singing exercise in the room for my dream!!!
My money? It's all wasted about singing lesson.
But now, my singing is *%[email protected]!
In addtion, I have stomach disorder because of stress! Haha!!!...
My mid-20s(23~27 old) was CURSED.
EVEN, I leaved my job(I was Computer Programmer, My university major is Computer Science). Because the second coach's proposition. He suggested to me that be the partnership. He said that He will make me to top vocal trainer & top pro singer.
Why I believe that? Because He's scale abillity is really good(Not actually singing But scale). He can reach C7. And His third bridge is powerful. But,,, He was never singing actually song.
frustrated, foolish, no hope.
How are the Ken Tamplin method?
Yeah, I saw many comments on various singing web-site. Many singers said "KTVA is effective more than other methods".
Ken said "SLS dosen't work". Yeah I agree.
But KTVA is really work? effective? Even for me? (losed voice seriously)
Now I don't have hope. I'm going to give up my Pro-singer dream.
Is there a guy who can understand my sad feeling?
Sorry poor my English. Isn't my first language.
Thanks for reading....
