  1. Hi Angela: In time you will find that you sing by feel…not even by sound…but by feel. As you get more experience you will begin to realize you don’t need to see it. You can do it anyway!

  2. I have very similar issues and similar questions as to why is there so much tension on neck muscles, throat tension etc. vocal chords coming together ??? how do we do that when we can’t see whats happening inside

    its a slow long process but I know I’m getting there thanks to all the exercises


  3. These stories are great, but I would like to hear some examples of singing instead of just talking about it.
