Hi from Kansas!!!

My name is Rob, I am a Commissioned Officer in the U.S. NAVY and more importantly for this forum I am a tenor. I am currently singing lead for a Christian rock band in Kansas City called "Even If..." I started singing at 4 years old, performing solos in front my church at first and later in multiple "Bar Bands". I always thought of myself as a good singer, but I had no formal instruction. The turning point for me was the first time I hit the studio, WOW... did my eyes get opened, I heard all the little things that I was doing wrong and I was determined to get better. I looked everywhere for a vocal instructor eventually found a local female Opera Singer. I was a little disappointed after 6 months of lessons and over $600.00, the only thing I had learned was how to do a vocal warm up and how to use my Opera voice (which I didn't know I had). It didn't help me too much on my recording and I was getting very frustrated because the things I needed to learn she couldn't do or even explain. That's when I found KTVA. Ken is amazing and his students rock as well. I learned new things the very first day and I was re energized to improve my voice. I plan on posting some videos and audio and I would very much appreciate any constructive criticism and pointers any of you might have. I have never used a Discussion Group before so any tips for that would also be helpful.
