There’s practice and then there’s productive practice.
A while back, I was preparing for an opera role and my voice was on the fritz.
So I drove across the state to visit a colleague in his voice laboratory to help fix me up.
I would sing into a mic and then a graphic representation of my voice popped up on a computer screen!
We worked by looking at my voice to find out how even it was, how smooth my vibrato and transitions were, etc.
I paid a lot of money for that little consultation but I came home and blew the opera out of the water! (It was ‘Amahl and the Night Visitors’ in case you’re wondering).
There’s absolutely nothing like SEEING your voice on screen and playing around to see what works best.
Especially if you’re a visual learner, it’s important that you be able to see your voice in real time.
Since then, it’s gotten way cheaper to do this and you don’t need to drive across your state!
Check this out and see what I mean.
This is guaranteed to cut your learning time substantially. Take advantage of the technology, your singing will thank you.
