Sometimes there is a moment when you are singing in the shower or in the car when you feel the magic. That magic potential of your voice. Usually no one is around:). So you can’t really prove that this happened but you know it did because you felt it. It’s kind of like the feeling you feel when you watch an amazing singer perform live or on some voice competition show. Your heart gets all buzzed, you start to feel hot, or cry or get goose bumps. But most of the time you may feel like you are just searching for your voice, searching in the dark. It would be nice if you could feel that powerful connection that professional singers seem to have and make look so easy. But the truth is you just don’t feel it. Even in your everyday speech it can be difficult to stand out and communicate what you really want to express.
I remember years ago when singing felt like a mystery to me (And I love mysteries don’t get me wrong. It’s part of what I love about teaching voice and the Alexander Technique. But I also love SOLVING my own mysteries). Even tho I have been singing and performing since I was 3 years old, singing was a mystery to me at one time too. But just so you know your voice does not have to be a mystery. Finding freedom in your singing, in your breath, in your movement is actually achievable. Right now you may sing along to your favorite songs but the feeling or desire in your body is stronger than the actual sound of your voice. You want that song but your voice is not delivering it the way you want to. If you are honest, you kind of cringe to hear the sound of your own voice on your outgoing message.
I swear singing can be WAY better than that. It can feel good. It can sound good. It can literally be therapeutic to just do vocal warm ups!.. let alone sing an actual song that you love. But you need an experienced teacher to guide you along the way to finding your voice. And you if you want lasting results, then you are going to want reminders and ways to connect with your body along the way. You want to be willing to invest in the process because it is going to give back to you enormously! Music is truly the gift that keeps on giving….for a lifetime. It grows and grows… and grows. To find your voice with all the honesty, confidence, fullness and body that you seek, reach out here.
