Hello from the planet New Jersey, USA
Hello to all my fellow singers/musicians. I am brand new here, and just got the HTSBTAE course. I just went through every video as an overview to see what the course contains and what the most important main points are. I came here very discouraged, because I took another course that did absolutely ZERO to help me. Yes, I DID put in all the hard work required to become a good singer, hours upon hours of practice and some live open mic performances. So I figured it wasn't the course that didn't work- it was me... I can't sing no matter how hard I try.
Then I saw Ken on Youtube (by sheer accident), and I noticed right away that he was teaching and stressing techniques the other teacher I just had SAID NOT TO DO. I thought to myself, “was it the teacher who contributed to me not making progress... is there still a small chance I COULD reach my goals and that hard work WILL pay off??” In a way I don't want that hope, because if this doesn't work for me, then nothing will and the truth will hit me hard. But at least I'll know if I can get my voice to where it improves, or if I am just not made to sing and have to accept that as reality and move on.
I am a musician, writer and vocalist (although I am not very good at it right now) as well and play lead guitar at a very high level. When I am in a band, it is always a power trio format, with me as the frontman/guitarist/singer. I need to be a lot better, in my opinion, as a singer. I never have a problem putting in the work- if it shows results. I am a sceptic when it comes to any online type music teachings, many are just money making machines that could care less if you get results. Ken is a Christian man who has morals and convictions, so THAT is the reason I am taking the chance to put my hope in his honesty, experience, skill and teaching. I WILL do the hard work, and for some reason I know I will improve more than I think I am able to.
Thanks for reading my ramble. It's nice to be here with you all. By the way, I will humbly say I am probable the LEAST of you guys as far as talent. But sometimes humility leads to really good things. That is my hope as I start the actual lessons tonight. I hope all of you reach your goals, not just as singers, but in life as well.
