A Little Musical Inspiration
"The singer has everything within him. The notes come out from his very life. They are not materials gathered from outside." ~Rabindranath Tagore

         Don’t know what voice part you are? Ask a musical friend or a local vocal instructor to take you through your range and help you find out what voice type you are. Once you find out, you can begin building your repertoire with songs that both solidify your voice and expand your range. It is extremely important to be singing songs that fit your voice type. Singing high or low notes without a solid midrange, the proper knowledge of your range or the right technique can be detrimental to your vocal health.  The key to developing your voice is to learn the most you can about what makes your voice uniquely yours and building upon that. Also, be sure to pick songs that you love; the more connection you have with the content of a song, the easier it will be for you to learn and the better off your performance will be as well.

     Our voices are absolutely incredible instruments yet we tend to take them for granted every day. From daily conversations with our friends and family to singing along with the car radio, our voices are remarkable assets to us as human beings. We rely on our voices so much, imagine the frustration you felt the last time you came down with a cold and could hardly speak, but you still had to convey an important message somehow. As tiny and insignificant as our vocal folds might seem, they are capable of amazing feats. I hope that through this blog you learn more about how to utilize the incredible blessing you have been given that is your voice.
