Singing For Therapy...
Voice lesson #Two
Todays lesson went okay, but not great.
Mostly, I think I was just too tired. It was hot, and I just felt gross. Not exactly good conditions for singing.
Apparently for the last 40 years I have been using my voice wrong. I hold my voice in my throat, rather than pushing it out through my diaphragm. This is what makes me so soft spoken. Ugh..
I'm so sick of people asking me to repeat myself. It doesn't help that I have had a bad headache and sore throat the last couple days. I can't tell if I am getting sick, or if its just allergies.
Anyways... my teacher kept correcting my voice. Which is what I pay for.. but it was just annoying today. She says I need more confidence, and to open my mouth more.. Also she wants me to try to get use to a microphone... which I think is gonna be hard considering that I have a strange phobia of them.. I'm working on it though. Little by little.
I've been thinking about buying me a karaoke machine to practice on, but I'm not sure which is the best to get. I'm afraid that I will end up spending way too much money, on a piece of crap that doesn't work well.
Other than that...not a lot going on.
