Dancer turned Singer
Hello, all! I've been watching the youtube videos for a while, but I've only very recently started the course. I'm excited to start developing my and breaking the mold I've been told. I'm a musical theatre singer, and I've been classified as a "legit bass-baritone", and so that's what was embedded into my mind before I found KTVA on YouTube about a month ago. I initially got into singing through acting and dancing (something I've done for many, many years), and I've only been singing for about a year (I'm 16 years old), but I've often felt that how I've been classified has restricted me free truly thriving as a singer, especially since my voice is likely still developing (although I'm not sure). When I found KTVA and found out about how it was all about breaking out of that mold and becoming a singer and not a singing type, I started doing immense amounts of research into it. I quickly found that this was the kind of place for me, and the atmosphere felt so inviting and accepting to all different kinds of singers. I feel as though the course will definitely be useful, I can already tell from perusing through all the volumes that there is a lot of material here, and I look forward to going through it over the course of many months/years. One question though. As a traditional "bass singer" (or anyone with a voice that doesn't fit many songs) cover songs without changing the key? Are there ways to sing in a different register in order to sound like chest without destroying your voice? And on a side topic, anyone know of some cool bass songs of any genre (that aren't the Johnny Cashs or Frank Sinatras (as much as I love them))?
