HALF DOXOLOGY [Singing Blogrimage Day 15/30]



VIDEO COMMENTARY:

Voice lesson. Working on the Doxology song. Want to sing this song Acapella with Amreitha for the recital. We worked on finding the right key for me to sing.

CHALLENGE UPDATE:
  • Added Doxology to set list
  • Getting more comfortable with lifting the soft palette 
  • Learning what it means to have a "full" voice
THOUGHTS:

Still caught up in this full voice battle. Realizing that different voices carry different levels of "full." I watched the voice tonight, and different artists sang well, but ranged in the richness of the voice. I think a big part of having a good voice is singing a lot and getting comfortable with what you got--that is, learning how to use it.

For today's lesson, I worked with my coach to evaluate different singers. We identified different factors that I liked and compared it with the voice I have now. She says I have a big range, and have about three different voices that I can work with.

Also, for me to sing with my soft palette up, I need to pretend to be an opera singer. Then, I bring back my voice to something less boisterous.
