Hey guys, I'm Taeko. I'm new here.
I started practising with Seth Rigg's Speech Level Singing method about 2 years ago.
I just couldn't get much volume and power from SLS.
but i did improve notes over the bridge and my pitch got stable. that was it.
Then, I read a lot about Brett Manning's singing success and it seemed like he covers what Seth did, plus things Seth didn't cover.
I gave SS a go back in May. practised almost everyday, then I experienced something horrible.
i lost part of my hearing - i suffered from a condition called Acute Low Tone Sensorineural Hearing Loss.
i was NOT totally because of Singing Success but i think it was due to excessive amount of stress and fatigue i was getting.
I recovered from that condition in mid July. Thank God! my doctor said it's ok to sing as long as I don't go too crazy!
kept practising with Brett's CDs again, but i never developed power and volume. i recorded myself and i found that I can control well when i sing quieter but when I tried to sing bit louder i sounded terrible.
Then I discovered Ken. man, why did it take SO long to find his system??
Just went through Vol.1 videos few times and practising with audio, I FEEL AMAZING!!!
perfect for me to build foundation after losing my hearing.
on the day 1, I could not even see my uvula and felt so frustrated, wanted to give up immediately.
but i watched the close up video so many times until i finally managed to apply to myself.
then, something clicked inside me...
definitely Singing Success and Speech Level Singing helped me to get into singing, but i think it was just a warm up. It was like, "one day i will get there" type of thing.
with Ken, it's wild. it was so hard to forget about what Brett was teaching, but I'm following and almost "ironed out" issues already.
I started practising Ken's stuff only few days ago. and i already think this is gonna TRANSFORM me - from a kitten to a tiger !
