I’ve been teaching singing for a lot of years now and I’m still surprised by its’ magical spiritual power. The power of music is a mystery.

My constant companion for 15 years was my very special Welsh Corgi, Tucker. I lost my beautiful dog to old age complications just 12 days ago. We were partners, Tucker and I. He could wake me up in the middle of the night just by looking at me.

My grief has been debilitating. My brain refused to work. Teaching was very difficult because music tugs at your deepest emotions. You feel vulnerable and on the edge of loosing it sometimes when your singing is most free.

Here’s what really surprised me…

Teaching a student yesterday I sang a few bars to demonstrate how to achieve different effects with phrasing. As I was singing, it felt powerful and sure. Most of all I felt, actually felt, healing taking place.

When I’d finished teaching for the day, I sang some of my favorite music. I sang my heart out for a couple hours. Now I’m feeling like my strong, happy self again. There will still be tears and mourning, for sure. But each time I sing, more healing will take place and the loss will hurt a bit less.

Why this is such a surprise to me I don’t know. I’ll say that it’s healthy to be in awe of the mystical power of singing because then I simply trust.

Just think of how much positive energy you contribute to the world each time you sing with freedom – straight from your heart. Think about how much healthier your body is because you sing from your heart with total connection to the lyrics.

Celebrate the New Year with singing! And keep singing and singing and SINGING!!! Sing Like You Speak!

Students sometimes come into their lesson with me and say, “I got it! I know the ONE thing I have to do to ‘fix’ my voice! If I do this (drop the jaw or breathe into my lower back or open the throat etc.) Then I’ll never have to worry about my voice again!”

When I ask for the student to enlighten me about this ONE magical thing that will fix her voice, the answer is usually a good partial solution to their singing challenges. I caution students against this instant gratification thinking.

Usually a week or 2 later the same student is complaining that the ‘fix’ doesn’t work any more. Then s/he gets so discouraged because If there was ONE fix for everyone’s voice Then singing would be easy.

The reality of the vocal instrument is that no ONE thing is going to ‘fix’ it for all time. The voice is alive and constantly changing and continuously responding to signals from the brain and the environment. The vocal production involves the respiratory, auditory, and neurological systems. It involves muscles from above the hard palate to the thighs. How can ONE thing possibly be the entire solution to good singing?

Do not be discouraged by this. Actually the complexity of the human voice is why it’s so captivating. As singers we have so many choices of expression through music.

If you want just one thing to do that will Then change your singing forever, begin with your inhale. Think of you inhale as opening your vocal instrument from the tip of your nose to the top of your ears to your tailbone, keeping in mind that your jaw must be loose to get an open inhale.

I’ve spent my entire career exploring my inhale. I find it fascinating and constantly rewarding to continue finding yet another small adjustment that opens my voice even more.

A true professional never ‘finished’ with her vocal training. There’s always something new to learn that will take your singing to a whole new level.

Grab on to the fascinating study of your singing voice. You’ll always be happy you did.

Steps on Broadway Presents:
Grover Dale / Donna McKechnie / Randy Skinner

Steps on Broadway is one of the two top dance schools in New York City. Many, many successful performers have been trained at this professional school. I am honored to be on staff as their Voice Teacher, training dancers to sing like you speak.

Steps wowed us all with a panel of 3 amazing musical theater performers, Grover Dale, Donna McKechnie and Randy Skinner, who shared their love for the craft and the wisdom of their years in the biz. I want to pass on one juicy tidbit from each of the three to you.

Randy Skinner has had a diversified career as a dancer, singer, actor, choreographer, director and teacher. His word to the wise was: diversify. Be open to any opportunity that comes along. Always be learning and growing and take the jobs that are offered even if you’re not sure you will ‘like’ the job. You just never know…

Take singing lessons, take acting lessons, take dance lessons. Never stop taking classes if you want to work on the Broadway stage. That was Donna McKechnie advice. She told several wonderful stories about jobs she never would have landed if her craft had not been honed with all those classes.

And what can I say about Grover Dale except that he’s a force of nature. In his late 70’s and he had more energy than the rest of the room combined! His gem of wisdom was this: when you walk into an audition or a dance class or even a party, let your energy fill the room. Fill the room! It’s fascinating. Try it.

Being a successful performer is not about talent. There was not one mention of talent from this illustrious panel. Success requires constant learning and practice – taking your raw talent and developing craft. That’s how you stay in the biz until you choose to hang up your tap shoes. All the best to you.

Singing is natural. Your body is already the perfect musical instrument. However, your instrument may have developed some bad habits. That does not mean that your voice is bad just that you have some bad habits that cover the natural beauty of your singing.

To uncover the natural awesomeness of your singing voice and to ensure vocal health, you must embed good habits of vocal production. Open to inhale and release to exhale (while singing).

Your voice in fact, is constantly vibrating and alive. It’s a real high when you can let your singing go.1285755480FOplQ7

Singers, when your jaw is tight nothing goes well with your singing. You can’t get a good opening inhale. When your tight jaw won’t drop open for the inhale, you can’t active those lowest abs and back muscles that make your singing powerful. Your sound can actually get trapped and held by the jaw.

As a voice teacher, I am always saying, “Drop the jaw! Open up!” What’s funny is the response that I get so often which is a very frustrated, “I AM!” Not so much.

Watching in a mirror while your are singing is really the only way to know.

Enjoy this video lesson from SingLikeYouSpeak.com my online singing lesson website. This is an actual lesson. You won’t get to see the good stuff in this video anywhere else.

Singers with a tight tongue usually are unaware of the tension. They usually know there is something inhibiting their natural sound – a sound that is free and beautiful.
